Most laboratory testing is still done on male rats, mice and pigs.
Most human drug testing has traditionally been done on men and only in the last 20 years has there been the involvement of women in drug testing.
Is it not surprising that women end up with a whole lot of different outcomes for the same drugs as men?
On this basis women have now become a clinical trial in an uncontrolled fashion for most drugs out there.
One of my concerns is that information is generated when a person takes one drug but so many people are on a combination of medications that the potential hazards are compounded.
We are in such a mess when getting back to eating for our health can reverse so many health issues.
