Effects Hormone Therapy in Younger Women
New research shows postmenopausal hormone therapy does not affect cognitive functioning in younger women.
The study from Wake Forest School of Medicine looked at women ages 50 to 55 years old some received the treatment others took a placebo.
When researchers evaluated the women seven years later, they found there was no cognitive difference between the two groups.
Earlier research found the therapy prescribed to women 65 years and older did negatively affect their cognitive ability.
