First women's health book to deal with the environmental toxins and lifestyle habits that act as endocrine-disrupting chemicals causing profound damage to ovarian and thyroid hormones, leaving thousands of premenopausal women infertile and suffering from symptoms of hormone dysfunction previously associated with much older women. Devastating symptoms such as premature puberty, endometriosis, headaches, PCOS, obesity, diabetes, chronic fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia and more are all on the rise. Despite warnings from environmental scientists, healthcare simply isn't addressing these issues. From diet drinks, plastic food wrappers, phytoestrogens in food and supplements to common household pesticides and cleaning products, Dr. Vliet identifies these endocrine disruptors and provides a plan to combat them and lead a healthy life.No woman can afford to ignore these issues. Publishers Weekly states, ."women who want to be more knowledgeable and assertive patients will find it indispensable." Patient raves, "After bouncing from doctor to doctor with symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, and heart palpititations, Dr. Vliet correctly diagnosed my hormonal problems. She gave me my life back "
