Hey Girls, The Female Viagra is Here!

The scary thing is that almost the exact same pitch was used in the 1990’s to sell hormone replacement therapy to treat the ‘disease’ of menopause, with disastrous results. After millions of women used synthetic estrogen and progestin in pursuit of youth or because they were told it had health benefits the evidence is clear that the drug combination increases the risk of breast cancer. For some women the benefits might outweigh the risks, but Big Pharma was pushing the pills like candy.

I saw on the net today that the late film critic, Roger Ebert, gave a glowing review to Forks Over Knives. I recently attended a talk by a doctor who was evangelical about the benefits of the vegan diet, and had some dramatic before and after pictures of herself to show. We watched Forks Over Knives and I can’t argue with the logic. All I can say is it’s simple, but not easy.
