Where To Find Our Guest
"One of the most important questions I ask is, how many antibiotics have you been on in a lifetime? And that is a revealing question. And again, antibiotics are major hormonal disruptors. People have no idea. You increase your risk for breast cancer with that, if you've been, you know, in years of antibiotics. How much alcohol do you drink? That's another big thing. That's a huge area in women.” [00:44:51] – Dr. Margaret Christensen
