Estrogen-progestin menopausal hormone therapy and risk of lobular and tubular breast cancer
Estrogen-progestin menopausal hormone therapy is associated with a more than two-fold higher relative risk of developing lobular cancer or tubular cancer than of developing ductal cancer. The results of a large European study published today in the journal 'Breast Cancer Research' show for the first time that estrogen-progestin therapy is associated with a higher relative risk of developing tubular cancer than ductal cancer, when taken for more than five years.

OHSU scientists dispel late-night eating/weight gain myth
Scientists at the Oregon National Primate Research Center at Oregon Health & Science University believe they have helped dispel the myth that late-night eating causes weight gain.

NIH state-of-the-science panel calls for 'demedicalization' of menopause
An independent panel convened this week by the National Institutes of Health found that many women move through the menopausal transition with few disabling symptoms, and that menopause should not be viewed as a disease.
