Scientific American Devotes Issue To Science Of Women's Health


Women's health is just health; it's just about dealing with health issues in women's bodies.  The trouble is, societies around the globe still freak out in greater and lesser degrees about even discussing women's bodies and what they do.  Case in point: women are social outcasts in some cultures while they are menstruating. 

Scientific American attempts to separate science from social mores in its May issue on "The Long-Neglected Science of Female Reproductive Health."  Co-editors Jen Schwartz and Clara Moskowitz join us to talk about the issue.
