HRT increase Cancer risk
replacement therapy can triple the risk of breast cancer, the biggest ever
study has found, following more than a decade of controversy.
Last year the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (Nice) changed guidance to encourage more doctors to prescribe HRT claiming too many menopausal women had been left suffering in silence.HRT is used to treat uncomfortable symptoms of the menopause – such as hot flushes, migraines, disrupted sleep, mood changes and depression – by topping up the decreased levels of hormones produced by the body.
But doctors were reluctant to prescribe it after a study in 2002 suggested it could raise the risk of cancer, a claim later widely disputed.Now new findings by the Institute of Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Now suggest the original risk had actually been underestimated. A study of 100,000 women over 40 years found those who took the combined oestrogen and progestogen pill for around five years were 2.7 times more likely to develop cancer compared to women who took nothing, or only the oestrogen pill. The risk rose to 3.3 times for women who took the drugs for 15 years or more. Around 14 in 1,000 women in their 50s are expected to develop breast cancer, but that rises to 34 in 1000 for women taking the combined pill, the study suggests.
Former Aston Villa star Dalian Atkinson Tasered to Death by Police
Atkinson dies after being Tasered by Telford police Former footballer Dalian
Atkinson has died after being shot with a Taser by police at his father's
house.Police said the weapon was deployed at about 01:30 BST in Telford,
Shropshire after officers were called to a report of concern for a man's
safety. A neighbour described seeing the former Aston Villa star, 48, being
Tasered after "stumbling towards" police. Mr Atkinson went into
cardiac arrest on his way to hospital, where he was pronounced dead at about
03:00. Paula Quinn, who lives in a first-floor flat near the Atkinson property
in Trench, said: "They were shouting and kicking so much all I could
hear were the boots hitting him.
"And then the officer who released the Taser stepped back while the other officer still continued to kick and then I could hear him shout to the other officer that was still kicking, 'Back off, back off, back off.'"And then the officer with the Taser asked the gentleman to put his hands behind his back and did so probably two or three times and reactivated the Taser another four or five times after that."
