It's time to get the facts straight: Estrogen doesn't take lives, it saves them. In a "must-read" book bound to generate controversy with the force of its argument, Dr. Adam Romoff explores the most current scientific research available, revealing that the correlation between estrogen and breast cancer is negligible. In chapters that cover the effects of estrogen on the heart, the bones, the breasts, and the brain, as well as on quality of life issues, Dr. Romoff explains how taking estrogen actually reduces the risks of getting heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer's disease by 50 percent or more -- while it enhances a woman's sex life, memory, and mood.

Estrogen: How and Why It Can Save Your Life dispels the myths and states the facts about estrogen: what it is, how and why it works, how it can be administered, and what the true risk factors are for a small percentage of the population. In an articulate and passionate voice, Dr. Romoff provides readers with clear and powerful answers to a critical life question -- ensuring that women can take control of their own health.
