An eco-confessional

I've been on premarin for several years now, and eventually I discovered that stood for PREgnant MARe urINE. More recently I connected the state of being pregnant with producing large numbers of horses. And then asked question, "what happens to the all the foals being produced?" (Yes I was not being particularly bright).

Then I looked into the conditions of the premarin farms, and as expected it's pretty much your typical miserable factory farm conditions. According to a few animal advocacy groups the horses are stuck in stalls without opportunity for exercise or even REM sleep. The foals are typically sold to become food.

So I just got the chance to ask my doctor to switch me to an alternative. (Which appears to be made from yams and soy.)
