Abstract: The Women’s Health Initiative randomized clinical trial of hormone therapy found no benefit of hormones in preventive cardiovascular disease, a finding in striking contrast with a large body of observational research.
Statistical adjustment for a measure of healthy lifestyle doesn't yield the truth about hormone therapy
Adjustment for traditional cardiovascular disease confounders did not alter the magnitude of the ORs for MI or stroke.
Statistical adjustment for a measure of healthy lifestyle doesn't yield the truth about hormone therapy
We sought especially to identify questions about activities and behaviors that were NOT related causally to cardiovascular disease risk.
Statistical adjustment for a measure of healthy lifestyle doesn't yield the truth about hormone therapy
We then examined ORs for stroke and MI in relation to each of the lifestyle/behavior questions adjusting first for age only and then for age and the traditional cardiovascular disease confounders, also separately in women with and without a hysterectomy.
Statistical adjustment for a measure of healthy lifestyle doesn't yield the truth about hormone therapy
The traditional cardiovascular disease risk factors show expected associations with the risk of MI and stroke.
Statistical adjustment for a measure of healthy lifestyle doesn't yield the truth about hormone therapy
Adjustment for the traditional cardiovascular disease risk factors in addition to age does not change the magnitude of the OR for any variable by much, although the C.I.s often include 1.0.
Statistical adjustment for a measure of healthy lifestyle doesn't yield the truth about hormone therapy
