Guest: Robyn Stein DeLuca, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Stony Brook University, Author of “The Hormone Myth: How Junk Science, Gender Politics & Lies About PMS Keep Women Down" Hormones do not make women crazy, according to Professor Robyn DeLuca. But what about the PMS, the mood swings, the chocolate cravings, the menopausal looniness? What woman hasn’t used PMS to explain an emotional outburst? What woman hasn’t been chided for “PMSing” when she gets angry?  But Robyn Stein Deluca says it’s all a myth - “The Hormone Myth,” as she calls it in the title of her new book.
