Top Health Stories for 2006

By Christine Cupaiuolo |

The Society for Women’s Health Research has selected the top five women’s health stories of 2006.

The list covers “advances in research of particular interest to women and new sex-specific treatments” and includes FDA approval of a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer; over-the-counter approval of emergency contraception; dangers of smoking, beyond just the effect on the respiratory system; knee-replacement devices designed specifically for women; and research about health disparities and the need for individualized care.

What would you suggest as a top health story for 2006?
