Why Having More to Love is Good
Sometimes, it's healthier to be thicker.
The bigger you are, the less likely to have increased risk of cancer from hormone therapy for menopausal symptoms, evidently.
While the treatment is available, such measures are thought to heighten the risk of breast cancer. The results of studies vary; however, the link is potentially there.
Factors of race, body mass index, and breast density contribute to different results in the studies. Some women still benefit highly from hormone therapy with little risk of cancer while it increases in others.
With research based on 1.65 million postmenopausal women of age 45 and older, the women of smaller-frames and smaller bust experience far worse effects of the therapy than those who are more robust.
Obese women did not seem to be affected by the hormone use whatsoever.
Perhaps this goes to say that having a bit “more to love” is not so bad in situations such as this one, however controversial.
