Surely if it's oestrogen that one needs - all post menopausal woman (or post oophorectomy) will have a heart attack whether they drink or not!

Yesterday we got off the train from a day shopping in the local county town to discover we had to wait 45 minutes for the next bus to our village.  The bus station is cold, draughty and no shelter from the rain which just blows through.  We retired to a nearby hostelry for a Whiskey Mac.  THAT saved me from a heart attack!
