HRT COULD RAISE HEART ATTACK RISK BY 25%

A study of 700,000 women found HRT increases the chance of a heart attack by almost a quarter in women aged between 51 & 54.  Using it for over 4 years could raise the risk by 59%.  The research was carried out by Ellen Lokkegaard at Rigshospitalet in Denmark and was published in the European Heart Journal.   NB: It was not found to raise the risk significantly in older women.
