Please listen to this FABULOUS interview with Dr. Louise Newson, a GP and menopause expert as she talks about a condition she calls ‘female hormone deficiency’, and the false information that led to millions of women not taking hormone replacement (I was one of those women), which some doctors have called the greatest crime against humanity in this century.
