Women are increasingly attractive to Pharma
Are you aware that....
Sometimes - according to pharmaceutical companies - it’s hard to be a woman? From adolescence to old age, drug manufacturers offer artificial alternatives to the natural cycles of the body - contraceptives help avoid unplanned pregnancies, therapies aid fertility. But focusing on potential high earning products misses the long-term view: the creation of a female franchise that meets all of a woman’s needs from cradle to grave.
Women are increasingly attractive to pharma, and numerous companies are in development with treatments for gynecological conditions. The revenue potential for products addressing this market is immense; unsurprisingly, pharmaceutical companies are concentrating their R&D efforts where they are likely to get the best returns.

A strong belief that no-one should face the challenge of hereditary cancer alone prompted Sue Friedman to set up FORCE -Facing Our Risk Of Cancer Empowered - a non-profit organization for the high-risk community
by Sue Freidman
It seemed appropriate that I celebrated my fortieth birthday and my five-year anniversary of being cancer-free by sitting in an auditorium at the Smithsonian Institution listening to the research giants of the twentieth century talk about DNA.
The one-day symposium, Bringing the Genome to You, commemorated the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the structure of DNA and celebrated the sequencing of the entire human genome. The symposium highlighted DNA as the common thread that weaves through all life and links our genetic makeup from our ancestors to our progeny.
Knowledge of your menstrual cycle will open inner doors to deeper creative power and feelings of pleasure and wellbeing
We are all taken by so many things nowadays in our daily life that most of the times we feel torn apart by different interests, commitments, duties, hobbies, desires, etc.
We are also bombarded 24/7 by so much information that at times we feel overwhelmed and tired just by the thought of having to read another email, newsletter, letter, magazine, etc...
