For decades millions of women had been told that HRT was a veritable fountain of youth. Not only did HRT relieve menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings and vaginal dryness, it was also supposed to help keep the skin supple, protect the heart and bones and even stave off dementia. About 38 per cent of women in North America use HRT during menopause, and many continue well into their 60s and 70s, convinced the little pills keep them young. But with the release of the Women's Health Initiative study, these women watched their dreams of eternal youth disappear in a pouf. Every woman over 40 is being told that she needs to get as much information as possible and make her own decision about using HRT. But there is no definitive collection of information, background, advice, how-to, or where-to-go-for-updates. HRT and the Health of Canadian Women will be this definitive collection.
