T.S. Wiley is the author of “Sex, Lies & Menopause,” Harper Collins, 2003, the hypothesis of which explains why postponing marriage and motherhood, women have accelerated the aging process and put themselves

in the bull's eye for breast cancer. The book also examines the introduction of the birth control pill in the early 1960’s and the impact of not breast-feeding our young. In her previous book, “Lights Out: Sleep, Sugar and Survival, ” Pocket Books, Simon and Schuster, 2000, Wiley succinctly and logically argues that electricity and the light bulb put us out of sync with nature as the ultimate "endocrine disruptors".

People spent summers, before electric lights, sleeping less and eating heavily in preparation for winter because the light triggered the hunger for carbohydrates. Now, light is available 24 hours a day. Heating and air-conditioning climate control our hormonal responses to consume carbohydrates now available year round. This is the scenario for obesity, Type II diabetes, and depression.

In Wiley’s opinion, sleep is the best medicine. T.S. Wiley has also published peer-reviewed scientific papers in molecular oncology and endocrinology, as well as lecturing globally and teaching physicians Environmental Endocrinology in Planetarium settings around the world. Her newest work in process is "Manthropology", exploring how medicine and modern life are killing men. Find out more about the study of bio-identical, bio-mimetic HRT on her website,
