The health editor in me hates this! Today’s New York Times features a story about sleep–a crucial part of overall wellness and wellbeing–on the fashion pages. Even worse: It gives the story zero medical context. Why not just say that women’s sleep problems are all in their heads?
I’d like to see a NYTimes worthy story that discusses the biochemical and hormonal changes related to perimenopause that contribute to sleep issues in women –not just a sensational “society won’t let us rest” lament.
Note to Pamela Paul and the Times editors: You can do better than this.
