Jokey writing style that I don’t prefer.
At first I found this book had “better information”. But, for example, the author states...and implies it’s nearly a secret...that local vaginal estrogen does NOT travel to breast. However, my breast cancer doctor said this isn’t correct.
So, I suggest to be leery of other info in this book that she claims is “new” and/or true.
