HOT FLASH HAVOC is the most provocative and revealing documentary ever made about menopause. For the first time this documentary sets the record straight about the U.S. government sanctioned Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study released in 2002, which misrepresented that the hormonal replacement therapy being used by millions of women to treat the symptoms of menopause, could actually increase the risk of heart attacks and cancer.
This misinformation caused confusion, hysteria, and fear among women as well as healthcare providers, endangering the health and well being of millions of women, many of whom flushed their hormones down the toilet.
Here is an excerpt from a review in the LA Times….
An important conversation for women
The vital and enlightening documentary “Hot Flash Havoc” takes a detailed look at the under-discussed topic of menopause while unraveling its various medical, social and sexual ramifications. To call the film appointment viewing for women of a certain age is perhaps an understatement.
A wide array of medical experts, professors and researchers, plus many women whose lives have been profoundly affected by menopause, weigh in on the sensitive subject with clarity, candor and at times humor. Even if the material doesn’t always lend itself to scintillating film making, there’s no refuting the enormous value of the information shared here.
