The benefits of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to alleviate menopausal symptoms can be obtained from HRT derived from plants and from processes that do not require any animal suffering
12 June 2008

"There seems to be little doubt that women benefit from HRT. They benefit from the reduction or elimination of unpleasant menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats. They benefit from the reduced cardiovascular risks resulting from favourable changes in their serum lipids. They also benefit from the prevention of osteoporotic bone loss and their reduced risk of bone fractures as they get older. But all these benefits can also be obtained from HRT derived from plants and from processes that do not require any animal suffering." --Dennis Cox, Cambridge University Clinical School
