Surgical removal of gonads (castration) alters the hormonal milieu in a number of different ways that may precipitate chronic health problems and increased costs. Moreover, regimens designed to replace estrogen alone overlook the many ovarian contributions to the life of a maturing woman.

" My research has consistently focused on what behavior a woman can engage in to increase her power, well-being, and vitality."
