HOT FLASH HAVOC is enlightening, entertaining, humorous, profound, and is a crash-course in what you need to know about menopause. It has the power to be a life-changing experience for every woman.
HOT FLASH HAVOC is the most provocative and revealing documentary ever made about menopause. For the first time this documentary sets the record straight about the U.S. government sanctioned Women's Health Initiative (WHI) study released in 2002, which misrepresented that the hormonal replacement therapy being used by millions of women to treat the symptoms of menopause, could actually increase the risk of heart attacks and cancer.
This misinformation caused confusion, hysteria, and fear among women as well as healthcare providers, endangering the health and well being of millions of women, many of whom flushed their hormones down the toilet.
This film not only sheds insightful light on the confusion stemming from a decade of misguided facts, but conveys poignant stories shared by real women and in-depth interviews with the world’s most noted experts. HOT FLASH HAVOC provides compelling information about menopause that will empower women for the “Second Act” of their lives.
HOT FLASH HAVOC has helped the momentum of the medical community to finally get the U.S. government to release more data from the Women's Health Initiative study. This vital data can now help begin to correct the past misrepresentations of the study.
