Hi Helen:

As interesting and "empowering" as this article is, how many women do you think can do what she is suggesting? I don't know what this lady does for a living but I am betting she has advanced degrees. It is very, very difficult for the average person to research medical journal articles. Maybe a little, but definitely not at the level this woman is suggesting. I have a college degree in biology as well as a year of medical laboratory technology and I find it difficult to research scientific journals to come to the conclusions she is suggesting. If you can do it, great. But to suggest everyone do that, this is unfair.
