U.S. (WHI) study made ‘big mistake’ about risks of menopause hormones



media (Globe and Mail from NT Times)

However, Dr. JoAnn Manson, an endocrinologist and one of the principal investigators for the WHI, said: “The WHI findings have been seriously misunderstood and misinterpreted,” and millions of women for whom the benefits clearly outweigh the risks are needlessly being denied treatment. “The pendulum has swung too far,” she said.
The WHI study actually had nothing to do with menopausal symptoms.

  1. At the time of the original WHI media I attended a symposium on a critical analysis/review of the WHI. (only patient to attend) It was part of a SGO conference. It was an eye-opener in contrast to what the media/researchers were reporting. A very failed research (WHI) media event which caused untold suffering in patients. The WHI is still widely referenced but for those interested a 'post-WHI' search is required.
