From the book Women’s Health Alert

From the book “Women’s Health Alert” by Sydney Wolfe, M.D., Rhoda Donkin Jones and the Public Citizen Health Research Group:

… About half of all women are on a diet, far more than the number who are overweight.

… 13 million American women are using the birth control pill with more than 100,000 getting a pill which is too strong. Millions are unaware of the new studies linking long term use of the pill to an increased risk of breast cancer in women under the age of 45.

… At least 10 million postmenopausal American women have been prescribed long term hormone replacement therapy to prevent osteoporosis or heart disease, even though many of these women are not at high risk for either of these diseases. Many women are unaware of the increasingly clear evidence that long term use of these drugs causes a 50-100 percent increase in breast cancer.

… 20 million American women have had a hysterectomy, with 600,000 new ones each year. At that rate, one in three women will lose their uteruses by age 60 with more than a quarter of these operations unnecessary.
