Estrogen Matters: Why Taking Hormones in Menopause Can Improve Women's Well-Being and Lengthen Their Lives -- Without Raising the Risk of Breast Cancer. This brilliant, groundbreaking book, co-authored by Avrum Bluming MD and Carol Tavris PhD. tackles the confusing and often controversial subject of HRT. Realising there was so much misinformation out there, they decided to set the record straight and this book is the result. It is so well researched that it’s every scientists dream, but it’s written so that every day folk, like me, can digest the information and feel comfort in their expertise. The show today answers many questions women have about HRT, it’s implications on heart health, breast cancer, osteoporosis and alzheimers. Dr Bluming has spent the past two decades studying the benefits and risks of hormone replacement therapy administered to women with a history of breast cancer, with over 60% of his work focused on breast cancer. Carol Tavris received her PhD in social psychology from the University of Michigan. Is the author of numerous books, including,Mistakes Were Made (But Not By Me) and and has received numerous awards for her efforts to promote gender equality, science, and skepticism. I was delighted to have them on the show, in this clear, witty and informative chat on why Estrogen Matters. Are you enjoying the podcast?
