Women’s Brains are Different

I scour the meta verse for information on women’s health. For me, right now, menopause is a highly researched topic. There is a horrible dearth of good information. So happy for the last chapter of the Ted Radio program today - even just this moment on menopause was so informative! More please - women’s health is health for at least half the earth, and peri- and full menopause are under-researched, but definitely under-covered. Thank you Ted!

The formerly great TED

TED talks used to be great, but then shifted from real science, technology, art and intriguing topics to wokesters and leftist garbage. TED should be under some other section like leftist /liberal/Democrat/commie cult teachings. TED has Gone down the same path as NPR, MPR, etc. Nothing much of TeD has been other than a waste of time and electricity for years. A great idea turned to rubbish.
