draws enough attention
to counter the fears and misinformation
about HRT that so many women, and their physicians, still hold."
Phyllis Greenberger, MSW, former President and CEO of the Society for Women's Health Research
“Well written, insightful, and hard hitting,
successfully rebuts the billion-dollar, government-led study known as the Women’s Health Initiative, which claimed that hormones for post-menopausal women are harmful. That study was wrong. It turns out estrogens do matter for women’s health.”
Vincent T. DeVita Jr., MD, Professor of Medicine, Yale School of Public Health and Yale Cancer Center
“If you’re one of the many menopausal women who avoid HRT to treat your symptoms because of all the scary headlines,
this book is a must-read
