What Dr. Eilber Can Say on
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy:

Some women feel safer taking bioidentical hormones compared to prescription hormone replacement therapy because of the belief that they have fewer side effects such as the risk of cancer; however, the scientific data is lacking.

When it comes to bioidentical hormone replacement, here are 5 myths:

 1. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a medical term. It’s just a term used by makers of BHRT but it is not recognized by the FDA. 

 2. It’s safer than traditional hormone replacement. They are not safer just because they are “natural.” There is no convincing data that bioidentical hormones are more or less safe compared to traditional hormone replacement therapy.

What Dr. Loper could say on
Screen Time Effects and Regulation:

Recommended Screen Time Duration for Most Age Groups, Including Adults
    • The most consistent guidelines have been for children one year of age or younger, where the standard recommendation remains no screen time. Children between the ages of 2-4 according to the World Health Organization, or 2-5 according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, generally should have no more than one hour of screen time daily.
    • The absence of consensus regarding screen time duration for older children and adults is due to a so-called lack of data. Particularly in the context of the pandemic, screens have become even more ubiquitous, making it that much harder to study this issue.
    • However, consistent with our era of quantitative bias, where it’s not true unless you can prove it and big data is confounded with truth, the fear regarding screen time is that we are once again attempting to substitute data for common sense.

Gender Roles in the Old & New Workplace:

That group is what I characterize as the “mens”; it is decidedly not a typo. The mens, utilizing the definition in the Time article, are itching to get out of the “kid and home sphere” where it is clean, less sticky, where time means something (I have a meeting at 1 don’t bother me; 12:55 pm– “MOMMM, the cat threw up all over your desk!”—in this world of WFH time is fluid. Meetings are not so much scheduled as let’s put it down and I hope no one gets sick; we’ll hope for the best.

According to the recent Time magazine article, “Nobody Wants to Go Back to the Office As Much As White Men,” the men they are speaking about are the definition of boomer or near boomer age white men who enjoy a level of privilege in the corporate muckety-mucky. The last two-plus years of the men’s seeing the world of children (often still too often the domain of women and primary child caregivers).
