Decision on Estrogen Replacement
The following reference, found on BioMedNet, has made up my mind for me about whether or not to do estrogen replacement. Looks pretty positive for memory. I believe there's an increased risk of cancer, but given the choice--particularly since witnessing my mother's decline--I'd rather risk the cancer than survive with dementia.

Role of estrogen replacement therapy in memory enhancement and the prevention of neuronal loss
associated with Alzheimer's disease.
