Useful TED talk on how testing for drugs is done on men only

Drug testing has usually been done on men only, so this is why women can have more negative reactions to certain drugs. More testing of new drugs needs to be focused on women as well as men.

Hi marsaday, I remember when this big news came out and that women often need only half the dose of men. It's okay, we don't want to take all those pharmaceuticals in any dose. I wonder if the same goes for supplements.
