It would be more accurate to say "speculated that" than "concluded that". Fugh-Berman does not actually describe any evidence about the number of women with no indications for HRT who receive it.

Competing interests declared: My company provides ethical professional medical writing services to both pharmaceutical companies and academic researchers, but much more often to the former. I am a former president of the European Medical Writers Association (but writing in a personal capacity) and have written extensively about ghostwriting in the medical literature.
