Abstract:

"Over the last sixty years, millions of women in the United States have been prescribed estrogen, but did they know all there is to know about this powerful hormone? In this groundbreaking book, Barbara Seaman traces the history of estrogen use and misues, and investigates the pharmaceutical manufactures who pushed aside any negative findings on estrogen to insinuate their products into the lives of women, old and young. Seaman turns up essential, often shocking information that should have been part of public awareness but only now is coming to light"--Page 4 of cover.
