We’re Being Exploited by the Menopause Industry

Women are being exploited by the menopause industry, which is profiting from their fears and insecurities, according to a new report.

The report, by the charity Women’s Health Concern, found that the menopause industry is worth billions of pounds and is growing rapidly. The industry includes a wide range of products and services, from hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to supplements, skincare products, and lifestyle advice.

The report found that the menopause industry often uses fear and guilt to sell its products and services. For example, women are told that they need to take HRT to avoid osteoporosis, heart disease, and dementia. They are also told that they need to use anti-aging products to maintain their appearance.

The report also found that the menopause industry often ignores the real needs of women. For example, many women experience hot flashes, night sweats, and other physical symptoms during menopause. However, the menopause industry focuses on selling products and services that promise to improve women’s appearance, rather than products and services that can help them to manage their physical symptoms.

The report calls on the government to regulate the menopause industry and to protect women from exploitation. The report also calls on women to be critical of the information and advice they receive about menopause.

What can women do?
