    " Hormone replacement therapy for women may not be as potentially risky as previously thought, a new Mayo Clinic review contends.

    The new study, which evaluated three decades of prior research, concluded that hormone therapy to treat symptoms of menopause doesn't increase overall risk of death or the risk of death from heart attack, stroke or cancer.
