In Understanding Abortion, May Pipes and Women's Health provide a clear and comprehensive guide to the factors to consider when thinking about a termination; what happens during an abortion; and the medical and legal issues. They include interviews with a wide range of women who have terminated their pregnancies, speaking out in their own words about their decisions and feelings; and they explore the political contents of abortion. A detailed resource section provides information about contraception, pregnancy testing, counselling, abortion charities and campaign groups. This accessible and practical book is written for any woman who is considering an abortion, or who has had a termination and wants more information and support, as well as for health and social workers and abortion counsellors.
According to a report released by a consumer market research group, Americans eat about 60 percent of breakfasts, more than half of lunches, and one-third of dinners solo. So, that means about half the times that we sit down to eat a meal, our only company is a television, a book, or our Facebook friends. When you're eating solo and you order delivery or purchase microwavable meals, you may not be making the best choice for your health or for your wallet. But you don't have to wait until you have a partner and 2.5 kids around the dining table to eat fresh, healthy food that tastes good and is good for you. You can make the choice to take care of your health now. Women's Health Healthy Meals for One or Two shares inventive, creative recipes that are healthy, simple, and delicious. Whether you are prepping batches of grab-and-go meals ahead of time or throwing together a single- or double-serving dinner from the ingredients you have in your pantry, this book will make the meals you eat alone tasty and nutritious.
The Women's Health Body Clock Diet provides readers with round-the-clock calorie control to finally eliminate the guesswork around dieting and the inadvertent cheating that so often sabotages good intentions. Researchers have identified four key times of the day after 11 am. when women's hormones cause significant fluctuations in energy and metabolism, revving it high or leaving it sluggish, triggering extreme hunger or allowing satisfaction on fewer calories. Large surverys show that women who understand their hunger cues and can tailor their eating and exercising routines to specific times of the day will lose twice as much weight as those who don't follow a weight-loss timing plan. The Women's Health Body Clock Diet offers readers a 3-step plan to reprogram their metabolism for fast initial weight-loss and the tools to improve blood sugar stability for long-term body shape maintenance. The Women's Health Body Clock Diet also provides an hour-by-hour analysis of hormone-driven fluctuations in hunger and lays out a step-by-step food-based solution: an innovative mindful eating plan that helps women overcome the cravings that lead to high-calorie overeating. The 30-day meal plan offers recipes, shopping lists, and a daily exercise "to-do list" virtually guaranteeing compliance and 15 of weight-loss, mostly around the abdomen.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
Even though slightly over half of the U.S. population is female, medical research historically has neglected the health needs of women. However, over the past two decades, there have been major changes in government support of women's health research--in policies, regulations, and the organization of research efforts. To assess the impact of these changes, Congress directed the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to ask the IOM to examine what has been learned from that research and how well it has been put into practice as well as communicated to both providers and women. "Women's Health Research" finds that women's health research has contributed to significant progress over the past 20 years in lessening the burden of disease and reducing deaths from some conditions, while other conditions have seen only moderate change or even little or no change. Gaps remain, both in research areas and in the application of results to benefit women in general and across multiple population groups. Given the many and significant roles women play in our society, maintaining support for women's health research and enhancing its impact are not only in the interest of women, they are in the interest of us all.
The National Institutes of Health Women's Health Initiative (WHI) is the largest research study ever funded by NIH ($625 million over 14 years) and is designed to test strategies to prevent cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, and osteoporotic fractures--leading causes of death, disability, and decreased quality of life for older women. Although the WHI has already begun, serious questions remain about its design, cost, and the likelihood that it can answer the questions it asks. This book evaluates whether the effort can be justified scientifically.
