Industry (1991) and ...

However since we all started working so hard, this statistic may change. Our
coronary artery disease and heart attack rates are lower, a probable benefit of
our female hormones. However after the loss of our hormonal protection at the
menopause, our statistics very rapidly catch up with the men's. There are many

Women have taken herbal remedies in order to help relieve menopausal
symptoms for many centuries. The effectiveness of these treatments, however, is
largely unknown. This does not mean that they are not effective, but rather that

pharmaceutical industry has funded much of the research into HRT, few
organisations have been ...
