Blod, svett och tårar by Lena-Katarina Swanberg

By Lena-Katarina Swanberg

Att vara kvinna är helt normalt. Puberteten är en common hormonomställning, varenda menstruation likaså, graviditeten är en gigantisk omställning och knappt lär guy sig att stava until eventually PMS förrän det är dags för klimakteriet. Allt detta är friskt, naturligt och inget konstigt alls.
Desto mer onormalt är det att så många kvinnor numera står below hormonbehandling lower than snart sagt hela livet.
Hur kan det sedan femtio år anses självklart att friska kvinnor tillförs additional könshormoner från femton års ålder och framåt? Hur vågar guy experimentera med den ständigt pågående förändringen i kvinnors hormonbalans? Varför anses så många friska kvinnor behöva förvandlas until patienter?
Först är guy fertil, males då gäller det att inte bli med barn. Alltså rekommenderas guy äta en hel del hormoner. Därpå förväntas guy bli gravid, males att bli med barn är inte alltid så lätt. Sådant fixas med rätt avsevärda mängder hormoner. I femtioårsåldern kan guy inte bli gravid längre, för så har naturen bestämt. Då överräcks välvilligt ytterligare hormoner.
Hanteringen av östrogenpreparaten är lika bisarrt lättsinnig som människans livscykel är lång. De kvinnor som nu förskrivs östrogen mot klimakteriets värmevågor och humörsvängningar är första generationen någonsin som har ätit hormoner sedan de var tjugo. Fortfarande är dessa kvinnor lika samarbetsvilliga försökskaniner, trots att den ivriga hormonförskrivningen börjar få synliga och faktiskt riktigt obehagliga konsekvenser i takt med att bröstcancerfrekvensen stiger, det påstådda skyddet mot hjärtsjukdomar inte fanns och halten östrogen i havets vatten nu blivit så hög att den är mätbar. Moderna reningsverk klarar mycket, males hormonerna slinker ostört förbi.
Blod, svett och tårar är en bok complete av ilskna frågor. Lena Katarina Swanberg har läst manhattan och gammal forskning, intervjuat gynekologer och forskare samt talat med kvinnor om hormonpiller som spolats ner i avloppet eller som orsakat sådan abstinens hos dem som försöker sluta att de nästan inte kan.
Hur pålitliga är läkarråden med tanke på att listan över hormonpreparatens biverkningar onekligen växt sig allt längre ju längre de prövats? Vilken kvinnosyn har ett samhälle som anser det rimligare att en medelålders kvinna riskerar bröstcancer än att hon svettas om nätterna? Hur kommer det sig att mäns spermieproduktion är påtagligt lägre idag än för femtio år sedan? Vad händer egentligen med pojkar som utsätts för additional östrogenpåverkan från fosterstadiet och framåt? Och varför upptäcks allt fler hormonbetingade skador på fiskar, fåglar och däggdjur?

Hon har givit ut ett flertal böcker, både skönlitterära och dokumentära, däribland den uppmärksammade Konsten att göra ingenting. 2002 utkom reportageboken Hedersmordet på Pela, Lillasystern berättar och 1999 gavs hennes mycket uppmärksammade bok Sorgfågel, Annika Östberg berättar sitt liv ut.

Another argument put forward against allowing companies to conduct unrestricted advertising is that it prevents small organizations from getting an adequate share of the publicity for their discoveries. This is certainly a valid argument with some types of products, which depend heavily on marketing, and for which research is not a major item, such as pre-packed foods and cosmetics. However, in the research-based industries, if drowning the voice of the "small man" were to have a significant effect on the rate of progress, a considerable proportion of discoveries would have to be made in small organizations.
