Discusses the human endocrine system and the hormone oestrogen in its four types: that found naturally occurring in the human body, that synthesized for ingestion as medications, 'xeno' or foreign estrogens from modern industrial and household chemicals, and phytoestrogens from food plants. Focuses on the function of oestrogen in women's bodies and how we may get too much, and the wrong kind, for our own good.
