The Menopause

The editors and contributors of this book have not been hampered by the conventional limitations of what constitutes the menopause and its symptoms. They have elucidated its pathophysiology and have clearly described the detrimental effects of hormonal imbalance (and specifically oestrogen deprivation), on body systems and metabolism. As such, the book will hopefully encourage physicians who have in the past been reluctant to intervene with any kind of hormone replacement therapy to accept the benefits that some kind of HRT can bring. Side effects of oestrogen administration are not ignored however, and the advantages have been carefully weighed against the risks.

John W. Whitehead
John W. Whitehead is an attorney and author who has written, debated and practiced widely in the area of constitutional law and human rights. Whitehead's concern for the persecuted and oppressed led him, in 1982, to establish The Rutherford Institute, a nonprofit civil liberties and human rights organization whose international headquarters are located in Charlottesville, Virginia. Whitehead serves as the Institute’s president and spokesperson, in addition to writing a weekly commentary that is posted on The Rutherford Institute’s website (www.rutherford.org), as well being distributed to several hundred newspapers, and hosting a national public service radio campaign. Whitehead's aggressive, pioneering approach to civil liberties issues has earned him numerous accolades, including the Hungarian Medal of Freedom.
