Discusses Women's Health

I am writing this on a flight home to LA from New York. I went to the very cold east coast for a Save the Children board meeting and Gala. I participated in three days of nonstop discussions (and celebration) of the humanitarian efforts of this amazing NGO (non governmental organization) for which I have…

Smoking is the number one cause of lung cancer and lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer related deaths in the United States. (More than breast, colorectal and prostate cancer combined!) A proper medical history should always include a smoking history and medical care should include therapies (and ongoing encouragement) to stop if a…

We all know what comes with our 50th birthday… The advice by your physician to get colon cancer screening. And then comes the yuck factor; discussion of the ways to do a colon cleanse in order to be able to view the interior aspects of this very long digestive conduit with either a “true” or…

I didn’t have a chance to discuss this in my last website and even though I’m a week late I wanted to belatedly acknowledge the International Day of the Girl which was celebrated on October 11. In honor of that day, the CDC sent an email with information that they hoped would raise awareness about…

I know most of you may not be reading this email on Friday because it’s the Fourth of July. I’ll try to send it out earlier or you might pick it up after the holiday. So Happy 4th and enjoy the barbecue, parades and fireworks. I couldn’t let the week go by without reporting on…

As we read, hear and see the news of the violent onslaughts in Iraq, the ongoing civil war in Syria and learn about the horrific impact of these events on the women and children in these areas as well as in conflict zones in Africa, most of us are appalled and don’t know how to…

I spent the last week in Berlin at the International Women’s Forum (IWF) conference in Berlin. It was a thrill to be among 700 women from all over the world who have been elected to their respective leadership forums. The panel discussions centered on innovation in areas of education, finance, the internet, human rights and…

Many of my website articles cover medical tests, services and therapies that can significantly impact and increase women’s health spans and lifespans. And I have deplored in some of these reports the fact that so many women have neither access nor insurance coverage to “do the right thing”. Despite all the brouhaha about Obama Care…
