“We all go to doctors. And we do so with trust and blind faith that the test they are ordering and the medications they're prescribing are based upon evidence -evidence that's designed to help us. However, the reality is that that hasn't always been the case for everyone. What if I told you that the medical science discovered over the past century has been based on only half the population?” – Alyson McGregor from Ted Talks
Some of the notable facts from McGregor’s Ted Talk are:
- · 80% of drugs taken off the market were removed because of side effects on women.
- · Every cell has a sex. Sex is DNA, gender is how someone presents themselves in society.
- · Drugs approved and released to market have been tested only on male patients, leading to improper dosing and unacceptable side effects for women.
