    i don't know about for guys.. i know that HRT for women has shown that it increses risks of breast cancer, stroke, and heart attack. i know because i just got done reading about this for class like ten minutes ago. i dont know why you would use HRT, but for women, aerobic exercise has the same effect on the brain and body as the HRT, without the risks. again, what i read was about hormonal changes in women, so idk anything about men, but i'd imagine it to be similar.
