♥ Book Title : Combined Estrogen-progestogen Contraceptives and Combined Estrogen-progestogen Menopausal Therapy
☯ Full Synopsis : "Oral contraceptives for family planning worldwide have revolutionised the reproductive lives of millions of women since their introduction in the 1960s. Later on, a variety of side-effects including cardiovascular diseases was recognised. In response to these concerns, new generations of combined oral contraceptives were developed that featured lower dose of estrogen and newer, more potent progestogens. The effectiveness and ease of use of combined hormonal contraceptives suggest that they will continue to be used to a significant extent in the future. This ninety-first volume of IARC Monographs contains evaluations of the carcinogenic hazard to humans of combined estrogen-progestogen contraceptives and combined estrogen-progestogen menopausal therapy. The hormonal drugs reviewed in this volume involve co-administration of an estrogen and a progestogen. Studies that did not provide information on the use of combined estrogen-progestogen agents are not reviewed. It should also be noted that this volume reviews only studies that are publicly available and therefore does not include pharmaceutical test results that are not in the public domain. The evaluations developed in this volume identify specific forms of cancer for which the risk is increased or decreased by combined estrogen-progestogen contraceptives and provide information that will help address the health concerns and well-being of hundred of millions of women worldwide."Article| IARC Working Group on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans, World Health Organization, International Agency for Research on Cancer| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Band-tailed Pigeon
☯ Full Synopsis : ""A longtime hunter in the coastal range of Oregon takes stock of his favorite prey, the band-tailed pigeon," reported "The New York Times in the summer of 2003. What made Worth Mathewson's writing about the western wilderness pigeon newsworthy is not his elegant evocation of the damp, spicy scent of a Pacific Northwest river valley before dawn or his keen observations of bandtails flying high and fast over a canyon, then folding their wings to drop into trees like gray darts. Rather the press took note of an avid hunter blaming overhunting and bad management for the devastation of a species. Wary by nature yet brave under fire, the magnificent bandtail has long thrilled the sportsman. Some attribute the bird's decline to habitat loss, but Mathewson, in this complete natural history, carefully builds his case to the contrary. While trichomoniasis and spraying of broadleaf trees may contribute, the human factor is paramount: a persistently callous attitude toward "Patagioenas fasciata may keep it in a downward spiral. If modest protections are lifted at the first signs of recovery, its fate may be sealed. "Nonhunters will likely be puzzled, perhaps irritated, by statements that some hunters love the quarry they kill," Mathewson writes. "But that is fact." With drawings by noted wildlife artist David Hagerbaumer, color photographs by the author and Margaret Thompson Mathewson, and an extensive bibliography, this finely rendered, affecting portrait of a wild bird with a troubled past is nothing short of a call to action."Article| Worth Mathewson| Statement ..."
