Newsday reports that "Researchers have found yet another problem that hormone pills taken at menopause seem to make worse, not better: incontinence. The findings came from the same landmark government study that has linked the supplements to a higher risk of heart attacks, strokes, breast cancer and dementia."

The study, published in JAMA, found that of 27,347 women, those on estrogen pills for one year were 53 percent more likely to develop urinary incontinence than were women taking dummy pills. The article fails to mention the somewhat related fact that the main source of estrogen is pregnant mares' urine. Weird, huh?
