Estrogen

The risk of breast cancer with estrogen therapy is minor or non-existent.
Taking estrogen does not increase the risk of breast cancer for most women who have an intact uterus. That's the final word from the Women's Health Initiative (WHI), which is the largest, most scientifically rigorous research program ever to look at hormone therapy. The results are being published in the April 12 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Preliminary results from the same study came to a similar conclusion in 2004.
