Today's Globe: psychiatry on call, ovary removal, asthma control, free care limits

Women who have their ovaries removed before menopause run a higher risk of developing dementia or other mental problems later in life -- unless they take estrogen until age 50, a study suggests.

After extending healthcare coverage to more than 150,000 previously uninsured residents over the past year, Massachusetts health reform took a turn for the worse this month with the Patrick administration's proposal to limit the state's Free Care Pool, Benjamin Day, executive director of Mass-Care: The Massachusetts Campaign for Single Payer Health Care, writes on the op-ed page.
