Colbert Report on Women’s Health

November 13, 2008

The Colbert Report had a funny bit called “Cheating Death: Women’s Health” last night. The gist of it is a take on pharmaceutical companies and how “Doctors solve women’s hormonal problems with hormones.” It’s really a bit more fun than it sounds, but you’ll have to watch the video yourself to find out (can’t embed properly on WordPress).

If you take a close look at the doctor/skeleton in the bottom left corner at the beginning of the segment, she’s holding a copy of the 2005 updated edition of Our Bodies Ourselves.

    The Primary Wife’s doctor has her rub drops on her wrist, and presto!, no more menopausal symptoms. I’m pretty sure its some herbal blend.

    I wish it was that easy. Nothing has been able to get rid of the worst of mine.

    Thanks for the great info on menopause. I’m not sure if there is any magical answer to menopausal symptoms, but I’m willing to try things as long as they won’t hurt my health@!!
