The Beauty and Burden of Hormones [electronic resource]

Telepool GmbH
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Are exercise and smart eating the best tools for staying youthful and attractive? Or is there a third ingredient in the fountain of youth-namely, clinical adjustments to the body's chemistry, perhaps with drugs derived from other creatures' hormones? This program examines the subject of hormone therapy and its link to longevity studies. Outlining the role hormones play in sexual attraction, the program describes the biological aspects of menopause; explains the use of Single Nucleotide Polymorphism, or SNP, in treating testosterone decline; and shows how the use of horse estrogen has been discredited as a weapon against female aging. Research into soya and phytoestrogens is also featured.
