Roland Martin talks to author and co-founder of Hope Beyond Fibroid Gessie Thompson about the staggering number of black women struggling with Fibroids and ways to possibly prevent the disease.

“It’s pervasive for women in general. The numbers…it spikes up to 90 percent for black women all over the world. It’s embedded in our lifestyle… what we eat, what we breathe. The root cause of Fibroids is estrogen. Estrogen is found in soy and dairy and meat,” she said.
