Is There a Difference Between Men and Women?

There has always been a debate about the differences between men and women. However, in recent years the focus has been on medications and the effects on men vs. women.

“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.
