Ep46: Why Science Knows Less About the Bodies of People Assigned Female at Birth

This is part 2 in our series on medicine’s sex and gender bias. In this episode, we talk about the ‘sex bias’ and why science knows less about the bodies of people assigned female at birth. This means that less is known about disease presentations and side effects for medications for people with these bodies, as well as illnesses that primarily affect them… like endometriosis! We discuss some of the federal regulations in the US that led to this and some ridiculous examples of studies that failed to include people assigned female at birth in their research.
