Another Reason to Investigate All Options

I saw a new study today that says that women who have had hysterectomies have higher levels of C reactive protein in their blood. What's that, you ask? It's generally viewed as a marker for inflammatory factors and may be related to cardiovascular disease.

It's just another reason to investigate all options when it comes to hysterectomy. It's not just a muscular pouch to grow babies, it's an organ and a part of our endocrine system.
