Expanded data from the WHI study is published in JAMA  (2013;310:1353-1368) with a major supplement. They are commended to finally have released so much information. I would caution readers to look at the data, particularly figure 3 which presents absolute risks by 10-year age groups. Then, don’t read or blindly accept the discussion, conclusions and relevance sections without keeping the data in mind. It is then possible to draw different conclusions on the potential risk or benefit for individualized women with regard to use for chronic disease.
