  1. The dangerous way to ease hot flashes

    Soy isn't a food -- it's a dangerous unregulated drug, and most people are getting dosed with it at every meal.

    We should be getting ZERO soy, but instead the mainstream is busily trying to cook up ways to sell us MORE -- like the new study that claims it can reduce the number of hot flashes during menopause.

    Does it work? Barely -- and even that's debatable.

    In a review of 19 studies involving a combined 1,200 women, researchers claim that soy in any number of forms -- from nauseating soy "milk" to nasty old tofu -- offered minor improvements in the frequency and severity of hot flashes.

    But the only reason it MIGHT work at all is what I've said all along: Soy is a hormone, not a food -- specifically it's a plant version of estrogen.

    Soy backers grudgingly admit this is true, but they've always claimed it's so weak it doesn't have any estrogen-like effects inside the body.

    Sounds to me like they're trying to have it both ways on this. On the one hand, it's too weak to affect the body. On the other, it's so strong it can reduce hot flash frequency and severity in ways that we know estrogen can.

    Which is it gentleman?

    But it's a moot point anyway, because the last thing anyone needs -- even women who really do need more estrogen -- is fluctuating doses of female hormones from soy.

    Soy can wreck havoc on the immune systems of women and disrupt or damage the adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary glands in men and women alike (and let's not forget that it can give even a "manly man" his very own set of boobs).

    Ladies, if you're looking to beat "the change," you might need some estrogen -- but stick with tried-and-true hormone therapy from an experienced naturopathic physician.

  3. Hidden heart attack symptoms

    As a recent study revealed, women who are hospitalized for a heart attack are 40 percent more likely to die than men. Know why? You guessed it! It's because most of them wait too long before going to the ER.
  4. Older women still want sex

    Too old for sex??? No such thing -- yet that's what seniors are told every day, especially women.
  5. Beat menopause AND boost your sex life

    Take this "recent discovery" for example: A key adrenal hormone can help beat menopause and boost sexual wellbeing and satisfaction in women. That's great news...but it's certainly not new. I told you all about this hormone way back in July 2002 and again in February 2009.
  6. Vitamins boost IVF success

    Imagine that -- good nutrition can help a woman get pregnant.
  7. Why the Avastin debacle is the FDA's fault

    What were they expecting, a round of applause? The FDA pulled the plug on Avastin for advanced breast cancer last month after studies showed the drug was actually not prolonging the lives of the women it was supposed to save.
  8. How soda can slowly kill you

    Breaking news: Sugar is bad for you! I know, I know -- you'd have to be soft in the head to think this stuff won't damage your heart… but judging by the always-rising sales of sugary drinks, that message hasn't exactly sunk in with the masses.
  9. A guaranteed turn-off

    Researchers have uncovered evidence that men who have been exposed to one of today's leading sources of estrogen, the BPA used in plastic containers and can linings, are literally repulsive to women.
  10. Pregnant women in stroke risk

    More women are suffering from more pregnancy complications than ever before -- and a new study finds that the number of strokes among pregnant women has doubled in a little more than a decade.
