Memorable Quotes:

“They are terrified that they’re going to do something that increases their risk of breast cancer when not having hormones increases your risk of basically all-cause mortality, whether it’s cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, dementia, stroke, thrombotic risk, colon cancer, lung cancer, and oh, by the way, it actually increases your risk of breast cancer too.” – Betty Murray

“The idea that hormone replacement causes breast cancer does not have conclusive evidence, and observational studies do not prove that.”– Betty Murray
