    edical professionals were aware of at least one case of cancer thought to be linked to a hormonal medication taken to aid gender transitioning, leaked documents from a worldwide transgender nonprofit organization suggests. In a report released Monday, the think tank Environmental Progress published hundreds of messages it said were from an internal forum of members of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), in which they discussed gender-affirming treatment and the complications that had arisen from particular cases. The report comes amid a national debate on gender-affirming health care, as states across the U.S. have introduced legislation to...

    Immunity is modulated by sex hormones and thus has an important role in the sex bias commonly seen in autoimmunity. Hormonal contraceptives are widely used by women, different studies show an association between their use and an increased risk of developing several autoimmune diseases. The incidence and prevalence of autoimmune disorders are higher in women than in men. Approximately 78% of patients suffering from these pathological conditions are women. It is known that hormones modulate the immune system. As an example, cortisol controls the immune response via the circadian rhythm, regulating T cell-mediated inflammation. …Studies conducted in the past century...

    New York family court officials have denied a father the legal right to stop his eight-year-old son taking life-changing hormones that would begin his medical transition to a girl. Dennis Hannon, 32, a senior software engineer from Buffalo, has been locked in a 'nightmare' legal battle with Erie Supreme Court spanning seven years, fighting to retain his fundamental parental rights. He claims that the boy's mother 'pushed' their child's transition, and says the boy himself was not distressed about living as a boy.

    Centred on the University of Lille, France, in September 2022, a group of international researchers reported in the prestigious journal Science that the progressive devolution in mental abilities of people suffering from Down Syndrome (DS) could be attributed to an associated reduction in the production of a particular hormone. They based their assertion on the results of experiments they had performed on genetically engineered mouse models of DS and on a small group of adult human sufferers of DS, in all of which the levels of the hormone had been restored to normal by various experimental means.[1] The researchers report...
  • Danish study finds that cross-sex hormones cause heart disease rates to ‘soar’ — but especially in males

    Since mutilating and disfiguring the genitals of minors, chopping off children’s healthy body parts in Mengele-type experimental surgeries, and injecting human beings with synthetic cross-sex hormones to affirm a debilitating mental delusion apparently weren’t enough to compel the left to drop the “gender”-bending madness, I doubt the findings of a new study from Denmark will be either—although they should. According to a new article out at Slay News by David Lindfield:The risk of heart disease is soaring among the growing number of transgenders being prescribed life-altering hormone drugs.…A new study published in the peer-reviewed European Journal of Endocrinology revealed that...

    People who believe they are “transgender” and take so-called “gender-affirming” hormones are more likely to suffer from serious conditions, such as heart disease, compared to “cisgender” individuals,” according to a new study. The study published in the European Journal of Endocrinology found that people who identify as “transgender” had a “significantly” higher risk of heart attacks, strokes, and a slew of other serious health conditions (via the New York Post):The authors used health data from 2,671 trans people in their early to mid-20s living in Denmark.They then compared the rate of heart disease seen in the trans patients to a...

    Endocrine-disrupting chemicals, also known as EDCs, are natural or human-made substances that interfere with the healthy functioning of the body’s endocrine system. The endocrine system is made up of glands throughout the body, along with the hormones that these glands produce and receptors that respond to the hormones. Endocrine glands include the pituitary, thymus, pancreas and adrenals. Hormones act like messengers, traveling through the body to deliver instructions that control biological processes ranging from growth and development to sleep, digestion and childbirth. Humans have more than 50 hormones. These include estrogen and testosterone, which help to control sexual development, as...

    It may be Pride Month, but scammers and grifters have no pride or shame, and they don’t stop just because it’s June. So please, don’t take herbal supplements that a random person on the internet told you are just like hormone therapy. On Tuesday, a Twitter-"verified" brand account calling itself “QueerQuirk” began boldly advertising an “estrogen alternative” available with no prescription called “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Estrogen!” under the sub-brand “EstroLabs.” “We're officially the 🔌 to get HRT style pills without a doctor's note,” an announcement post claimed, beckoning transgender readers to a Shopify landing page.

    Republican-led legislatures and governors seeking to put the brakes on puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgical removal of healthy breasts and genitals for gender-confused minors have a new weapon from the U.S. military. Nearly a third of "transgender and gender-diverse" patients who received so-called gender-affirming hormones had stopped taking them within four years, according to a study of children and spouses of soldiers who received treatment through the U.S. Military Healthcare System. Those most likely to stop were females and adults, which could be seen as supporting theories that the explosion in gender-confused teen girls is driven by "social contagion"...

    Republican presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that the government should not interfere with parents’ decisions on hormone treatments for transgender children Anchor Shannon Bream said, “Let’s talk about another hot-button issue, transitions for patients and people under the age of 18. People have argued that your position is not truly conservative. You vetoed a bill that would have prohibited hormone treatment or puberty blockers for people under the age of 18.”

    Rep. Matt Gaetz said this week that he wonders if the recent spate of mass shootings, such as at a Nashville school last month and at a Louisville bank on Monday are results from the work of Big Pharma. Speaking on Monday on his podcast “Firebrand,” the Fort Walton Beach Republican suggested that easy access to mind-altering drugs are making both society more dangerous and drugmakers more wealthy.

    According to the study, gender-confused individuals who use cross-sex hormones have nearly seven times the risk of stroke and nearly six times the risk of heart attack. (LifeSiteNews) — A study released this month shows that the use of cross-sex hormones among gender-confused individuals leads to “substantially increased risk” of serious cardiac issues, including heart attacks and strokes. The research, presented at a conference of the American College of Cardiology, found that “people with gender dysphoria taking hormone replacements as part of gender affirmation therapy [sic] face a substantially increased risk of serious cardiac events, including stroke, heart attack and...

    City Journal ^ | December 12, 2022 | Leor Sapir
    A paper published last month in the Archives of Sexual Behavior makes an important point about the environment in which “gender-affirming” drugs and surgeries are offered to minors. Positive outcomes from hormonal interventions, argues psychiatrist Alison Clayton, the article’s author, may be attributable to placebo effects generated by clinical encounters and the social context in which they take place, rather than to the underlying psychotropic effects of the drugs themselves. Clayton’s basic intuition makes sense. If you take a teenager in emotional distress and tell her that drug X will solve her problems, while treatment Y will make them worse,...
  • Author of op-ed supporting Vanderbilt transgender clinic fails to disclose her role as university spokeswoman Argues that 'part of being a teen' is being allowed to make bad decisions, even if that includes cutting off healthy body parts.

    A local Nashville paper recently ran an op-ed in support of Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s (VUMC) pediatric transgender clinic, which commits genital and chemical mutilations on kids. The op-ed said residents were “lucky” to have the facility in town – the exact kind of language you’d expect from a paid spokeswoman for the university. While the spokeswoman for Vanderbilt made it sound like the clinic provides altruistic, loving care, in reality it’s all about the money, as exposed by Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh. But the publication, the Nashville Scene, did not disclose that Betsy Phillips, the author, works in marketing...

    A “transgender health” clinic affiliated with the University of Wisconsin (UW) provides “gender affirming” puberty blockers and surgeries, and the program’s director has said she will operate on minors. On Friday, Libs of TikTok shared a series of posts with information about the Comprehensive Gender Services Program at UW Health. Dr. Katherine Gast is a plastic surgeon and director of the program. The clinic’s website has since been removed and all YouTube videos made private. “Now the standard of care is doing puberty blockers which are completely safe, completely reversible,” Gast said in an interview that has also been hidden...

    Following the reversal of Roe v. Wade, states are passing stronger pro-life protections, and abortion businesses are shutting down. But it is worth noting that America’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, is not going anywhere. Consider this: According to NPR, since the Dobbs v. Jackson decision in June, no Planned Parenthood locations have closed. Their evolving business still relates to sex, but not always in ways you might think. Planned Parenthood has found something besides abortion to sell. Few people realize that, nationally, “Planned Parenthood is the second largest provider of hormone therapy” for “transgender and gender non-conforming patients,” it...

    Pro-life advocates long have fought against Planned Parenthood’s exploitation of unborn children for profit. Now, the billion-dollar abortion chain is being accused of exploiting children in another way: cross-sex hormones. The Christian Post reports a whistle-blower inside Planned Parenthood recently came forward after feeling troubled by the group’s growing practice of prescribing hormones to teenagers who say they are transgender. Speaking to author Abigail Shrier, the unnamed employee said the teens receive very little counseling even though many exhibit signs of mental health problems, including self-harm. Rather than provide adequate mental health care, she said Planned Parenthood “rubber stamps” the...

    Dr. Hill told BuzzFeed that birth control pills can affect so much more than our ability to become pregnant: "The birth control pill changes women’s sex hormones, which means that its effects go far beyond contraception. There are hormone receptors on virtually all cells in the body – including all major structures in the brain. Because of this, hormonal birth control can have an impact on nearly every aspect of who a woman is." To date, research finds that hormonal birth control can influence all kinds of things, such as "a woman’s mate preferences" and even "her relationship satisfaction." She...

    This is the text from a screenshot posted to a popular forum today. Parasites feed on hormones. Their growth is hyper-accelerated by testosterone and estrogen treatments (see transgender people), which is why the infected demon doctors/media are pushing for LGBTQ sex changes. Those kills will be assimilated into the parasite hive mind without exception. The rest of us can't avoid exposure because T. Cruzi and Toxoplasma are just so prevalent in our eco system, which most mammal bird and shellfish populations showing 30-60% population prevalence. All species are basically the same thing, cross reactive with any other animal. Each of...

    Even if you think children should be able to pause puberty and take hormones, shouldn’t you at least want to make sure the drugs are safe?“Don’t do it,” yelled Dr. Anthony Fauci in August. “There is no evidence whatsoever that that works!” Fauci, of course, was referring to the use of ivermectin to treat Covid-19. For the moment, set aside that Fauci should have been fired years ago and has a long record of misleading and politicizing “science.” He and pretty much everyone else in America’s public health infrastructure pointed out that ivermectin had not been approved for treating Covid...
