Here is a review, but it is pessimistic, and lacks information. http://www.med.nyu.edu/content?ChunkIID=35539

Well, in one way they are sort of right, in the fact that plant derived hormones are somewhat weaker. Why else would some of us use 3000mg of PM when most doctors prescribe like 4 or less milligrams of real estrogen??

Yes, except they believe it doesn't work at all. Doctors don't even have it down for real hormones analogs, since many think surgery is the only answer. Of course they can figure out how to make it work pharmacologically, but they haven't, don't want to or don't believe in it despite clear evidence. The only issue I see is safety, which can be achieved, but biology has a complexity that some don't have confidence in. Many herbs are generally safe, and it's important to use herbs that have anti-tumor properties. I just think the review is considering or reflecting what is commonly told about efficacy.

Isn't it odd that they can prescribe hormones for guys wanting to be like women, but many in the medical community make a claim that nbe doesn't work. Reminds me about how people told Copernicus he was wrong, then case closed.

I think nutrition, pharmacology, and understanding the biological system is the answer.
