I posted an entire thread with links to about 5 or 6 articles along these same lines about 2 years ago, I think. It’s sad that nothing’s changed, but it isn’t exactly news to any of the women on these threads.

Soooooo …. heres another one, dated, lemme see …. yeah, TODAY:

I expect that the usual suspects will come out and deny this, saying there’s no hard data on this, no research, no studies, and in essence, it’s all in our heads.

Hmmmmmmm ….. where have we heard that before ….

PS …. For those who haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend Jerome Groopman’s How Doctors Think …. it’s revelatory ….
