      Dr. Greger, The last two years I was on an estrogen patch, had a hysterectomy 6 years ago, have my ovaries. I also was taking a progestrone pill at night. I have stopped taking both of them, I get a hot flash about three times a day, what can I do. I have lost 25 lbs in the last year and changed my total way of eating. Thanks,

  • Who paid for the “soy is bad for you” studies?

  • The funding source of a study affects the finding all too frequently. Where is the “science”? Who can you trust? Perhaps it should be illegal for industries to fund studies in which they have a vested interest.

    I am a student researching the effects of dairy and egg industry funding on nutrition research, especially research on plant-based nutrition. This video is very informative, however I am looking for other sources on this topic. Do you have any suggestions on where I could find this information?
    Thank you.

    If academic journals require that all authors report any possible conflicts of interest then why is this happening?

    Fund industry has direct links with the funds. This leads for their bets level. The increase in cost caused difficult bargaining power for the use. The prices should be in control form This leads them for best situation.
