Eve's Rib : Women have long been treated by the medical establishment as "little men," carbon copies with different sexual organs. In fact, as late as the 1990s, most medical research into diseases that affect both genders was done exclusively on men, the assumption being that we are all more or less the same. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. From the symptoms of common diseases to the way they feel pain, women truly are different. In Eve's Rib, medical pioneer Dr. Marianne Legato presents a revolutionary new understanding of the differences between the sexes. Individual chapters focus on the latest findings about specific organs and body systems, diseases, and treatments. Eve's Rib is a powerful tool for women who want to understand how their bodies work - and how to use this important gender-specific information to evaluate treatment options and communicate effectively with their doctors.
