Summary

A Library Journal Best Consumer Health Book of 2003 and an American Library Association/Booklist Editor's Choice Book of 2003"Barbara Seaman is the first prophet of the women's health movement and her prophecies are still coming true."-Gloria Steinem"A wake-up call to women about unquestioningly accepting doctors' orders."-Booklist (starred review)"Lively and impassioned . . . [Seaman] certainly makes her point."-Gina Kolata, The New York TimesWith the ardent tone of a close friend, Barbara Seaman draws on forty years of journalistic research to expose the "menopause industry" and shows how estrogen therapy often causes more problems-including breast cancer, heart attack, and stroke-than it cures. The Greatest Experiment Ever Performed on Women tracks the well-intentioned discovery of synthetic estrogen through the unconscionable and misleading promotion of a dangerous drug.One of our most tireless health advocates, Barbara Seaman was the co-founder of the National Women's Health Network and an advanced science writing fellow at Columbia University's School of Journalism, and had been investigating and writing on synthetic estrogen since before her first groundbreaking book, The Doctor's Case Against the Pill, was published in 1969.
