Did you know?
In 1977 the FDA banned all females from all clinical research until recently?
As a result, women’s health science was compromised. In the late 1990s a team of women blew the whistle demanding equal care. By the early 2000s with the Women’s Health Initiative, women’s health was on the radar. What they discovered was women were not small men, and that gender differences were more than reproductive differences. From heart and bone health, to the brain gut connection and how women absorb nutrients are very different than men.
