Conflicted hormone therapy* “experts”

May 25, 2015

Updated list in HealthWatch

My list of “experts”, who repeatedly publish articles and give talks extolling the benefits of post-menopausal hormone therapy (HT) without mentioning their associations with the companies who manufacture and market such drugs, has just been published in HealthWatch newsletter 97. Here is a copy. Spring 2015 issue 97 optimized (2)  My article is on page 3. Click here for HealthWatch itself. Click here and here for earlier lists. Click here for the original Cancun Conflicts list, and here for the Hot Flash Havoc list.

The official advice, from both the UK Medicines & Healthcare devices Regulatory Authority (MHRA) and the US Federal Drug Administration (FDA), remains:

Take HT for symptoms only, in the lowest dose and for the shortest time possible, and never for health promotion.

If you come across any “expert” saying different, check out who’s paying them.
