Why, mrs. Robinson? The seduction of teenage boys by women in classic films.

Why, mrs. Robinson? The seduction of teenage boys by women in classic films. Am J Psychoanal. 2014 Sep;74(3):233-49 Authors: Colarusso CA Abstract Utilizing three classic films, and psychoanalytic developmental theory, this paper explores the conscious and unconscious reasons why older women become sexually involved with teenage boys. After a presentation of aspects of young adult and midlife female development and a psychodynamic explanation for the developmental similarities between adolescence and menopause, each of the three films is summarized. The dynamics behind the women's behavior, as presented in the films, are discussed. The third section of the paper discusses similarities and differences among the three women and the negative effects on the boys' development. PMID: 25117782 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Marinho PM, Salomon TB, Andrade AS, Behling CS, Putti JS, Benfato MS, Schäfer Hackenhaar F Abstract Menopause occurs as consequence of ovarian senescence that leads to a drop of oestrogen hormone. The decreased oestrogen levels combined with the impairment of the redox system may contribute to the increased risk of postmenopausal cardiovascular disease. Supplementation with antioxidants may be an alternative to reduce cardiovascular risk. The study evaluated the effect of dietary supplementation with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and alpha-lipoic acid (LA) for a period of 16&...

Commonly reported incidence rates for endometrial cancer (EC) fail to take into account both the large number of hysterectomies performed each year and the dynamic change in hysterectomy rate over the past decade. Large racial differences in pre-menopausal hysterectomy rates between Black and White women in the US likely affect calculation of race-based risk.

This study aimed to investigate health state utility values in eight health states related to osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures using time trade-off (TTO) technique among postmenopausal Korean women. METHODS: Scenarios describing eight health states including osteoporosis and hip, vertebral, post-hip, post-vertebral, ankle, humerus, and wrist fractures were developed and presented to 500 female participants aged 45 to 59 years who were selected with probability proportionate to age group and region for this investigation. Each health states valuation was derived using the trade-off (TTO) technique. 10 years of a ...

Opinion statementOral inhibitors of CDK4/6 have been shown to increase response rates and prolong disease control when combined with endocrine therapy in hormone-responsive (HR+) HER2-negative advanced breast cancer. Palbociclib, ribociclib and abemaciclib are all approved in combination with non-steroidal aromatase inhibitors in first-line therapy for post-menopausal women, with a 40 –45% improvement in progression-free survival seen with the addition of any of these CDK4/6 inhibitors. Additional approved indications, including first- and second-line combination therapy for pre-menopausal women, combination with ful...
