Most women will go on the birth control pill at some point in their lives, and our generation owes a lot to it. But it’s something most of us know almost nothing about, even though it affects almost every system our body.
Column inches and current conversations prove there are many questions about the pill and its effects. In this groundbreaking book Dr Hill will provide answers, arm women with the latest science on the pill and reveal how it’s changing women and the world, for better and for worse.
Dr Hill’s book reveals cutting-edge science, some of it conducted in her own lab, that shows how the pill affects everything from…
– stress response
– autoimmune disorders,
– mate selection to
– declining levels of male achievement.
Dr Hill also makes the case for better science – for too long women have been understudied as research subjects. Their cycles are more complicated, it’s more expensive to do research on them, and scientists are under so much pressure to publish that it’s often easier to just use a largely male testing pool, or one that ignores important factors for women.
Her enlightening findings are a major step forward and will help women around the world make smarter, more informed choices about their health and hormones.
