HRT could delay dementia14th February 2013
Research from the Stanford University School of Medicine in California has suggested that taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) could delay the onset of Alzheimer’s for millions of women.
About one fifth of women are believed to carry a gene that makes them more susceptible to dementia by speeding up the ageing process of DNA by up to four times, making them more likely to contract age-related illnesses. But the research team has suggested that HRT appears to protect the DNA and effectively slows down ageing.
