Is it just me, or do you seem be increasingly surrounded by women whose lives have been affected by breast cancers, hormonal disorders, and infertility?

Some say it's due to an increase in awareness - that people and doctors are now more aware about these conditions and their diagnosis - others say it's due to our longer life spans today leading to more age-related conditions.

But talk to the silver-haired folks and inevitably, you'll hear about how their parents drank and smoked their way through old age yet led a vigorous healthy life to their last day when they simply passed away quietly in their sleep.

Maybe, just maybe, there's more to it. This one is for all you ladies out there.
