    This is the Truth for Women's Health!!

    There are so many 'experts' making judgments on women's health these days. Are synthetic hormones safe, can I get breast cancer from my HRT??..well, Dr. Randolph's book has cleared up everything for me. The information in this book is clear and now I have a clear course of action that I will take with my personal health. If you have any questions about your health as you age, this is the book to read.

    Direct and to the point

    I have spent 3 months researching this information and have e-mailed many doctors, clinics, even famous names and have found that this book has more clearly answered many of my questions directly and very easily understood. I have given this book to several people and plan to hand out more. I find this book more clearly states what every doctor out there either has little or no knowledge about or is afraid to answer.
