Question of the Week
"I need credible information on the use of these compounds for male feminization, specifically, Black Cohosh and Blessed Thistle. The only thing I can find is that these compounds would have to be consumed in almost toxic amounts to have an effect. The reason I am asking is because I suspect that my ex-fiance, who has a history of heart problems may be using them. He is 45 years old and has had two heart attacks, 6 by-passes, still smokes, and has just recently started dealing with his being transsexual. This "supplement" also says it contains "raw mammary concentrate", which I haven�t a clue what that is. I have some very strong concerns for his health."

The truth is, of course, that some jobs pose greater challenges to gender transition than others. Fire fighting, a profession dominated by males, is one such. Alishia Oulette, member of the Danvers, Massachusetts Fire Department, talks with us about her much-publicized transition on the job there two years ago. She also helps us out with a few fire safety tips!
