The Menopause Industry
By Sandra Coney
This work exposes the pressures which the new preventive medicine, with all its marketing pressure, is now placing on mid-life women. It examines in detail the benefits and risks of intervention such hormone replacement therapy, mammography, and cervical screening. It should be of interest to all women who want to make informed decisions about the health options available to them.
Published in four countries and into several reprints, this book has been called ‘a must read’. The information in this book is important and Sandra Coney’s incisive critique of the use of HRT should have been listened to years ago. It is groundbreaking and gives details on the benefits and risks of medical intervention in ‘the mid-life woman’. Sandra Coney argues that healthy mid-life women are being deliberately targeted by vested interests with products and services to sell. In the process, the normal event of menopause is being redefined as a health hazard that needs to be treated.
