HRT - the new thalidomide

Professor Bruno Muller-Oerlinghausen, Chairman of Germany’s Commission on the Safety of Medicines has not minced his words. Following all the recent hard evidence linking HRT to increased cancer rates, blood clotting, strokes and heart attacks, the Professor likened HRT to the effect of Thalidomide on birth defects in the Fifties and Sixties.

In a newspaper interview Professor Muller-Oerlinghausen said that the deaths brought about by HRT were far higher. In August, a UK study calculated that HRT had actually caused 20,000 cases of breast cancer over a 10-year period.

It is now believed that UK GP’s have been told to exert caution when discussing HRT with patients.
