With the latest research on everything from hormone replacement therapy to skin creams to preventing osteoporosis, this is the definitive manual. You'll find out which changes are expected and natural and which can be a cause for concern; how hormonal shifts can affect your heart, your sex life, and your mood; and what you can do to address these issues. Perhaps most important, you'll learn how to evaluate what you read in magazines, hear on the news, and are told by your doctor, so you can distinguish between solid facts and dubious claims.--From publisher description."@en ;
