I’m not a health-care professional, but in trying to keep up with what’s happening in the world, I’m running across more and more evidence that men and women are physiologically more different than anyone realizes. The latest evidence is a TED talk by Dr. Alyson McGregor, who explains how women have been at a disadvantage because most medications are developed and tested with men in mind. The next time you visit a doctor, you may want to ask, “How will this drug affect me, because I am a [insert gender here]?”
It seems like we have some catching up to do.
