From theGlobe and Mail:
Discredited HRT drugs marketed in new versions
Now that the touted health benefits of hormone-replacement therapy for postmenopausal women have been largely discredited, pharmaceutical companies are promoting low-dose versions of the same drugs, according to a new study.

They are doing so despite the fact that there has been no research showing low-dose HRT is any safer, said Dr. Sumit Majumdar, an assistant professor at the University of Alberta's division of internal medicine.
