It is no news that there is a growing number of homosexuals in our society today. More worrisome is the way these lifestyles are presented to the African American community.
It is given an unprecedented amount of Airtime on TV and movies. Children are now been thought in schools that it is absolutely natural to be homosexual.
But besides the pressure on the average black boy and girl to embrace homosexuality, we have also learnt that there might be other causes for such change in hormones and sexual preferences amongst our young people of today.
Researchers have pointed to the presence of chemicals in food, shampoos, toothpaste, fruits and other produce that
Recent research by the University of California, Berkeley has revealed that many conventional
The study found, that young girls are reaching puberty much earlier than normal as a result of exposure to these EDCs. And the research discovered that boys are similarly experiencing reductions in testosterone levels from simple use of contaminated products.
Now, testosterone is the hormone that makes men be MEN. A reduction of a man’s testosterone will only lead to more female hormones, progesterone. And once he has too many female hormones, he then begins to act and react to things like a woman.
The assessment of mother and children from Salina, followed 338 children from pre-birth into adolescence, was doe to assess the impact of various environmental exposures. And after 20 years, they determined that children were reaching puberty faster and that their hormones were reducing or altered. And the major culprit in this was personal care products that contain chemicals that are known to interfere with the normal hormone expression.
Kim Harley, the study’s lead author and an associate adjunct professor in Berkeley’s School of Public Health, said that: “While more research is needed, people should be aware that there are chemicals in personal care products that may be disrupting the hormones in our bodies.”
Another chemical which points to chemicals in foods that might be changing the hormones of young men is Atrazine.
An extensive study by Tyrone Hayes and other scientists have shown that exposing frogs to as little as 0.1 parts per billion can cause serious health issues, including a kind of ‘chemical castration.’
The exposure of fishes and frogs to contaminated surface water is also known to compromise their growth, behavior, immune function, and gonadal development. Hayes found in his research that 10% of male frogs living in atrazine laced water turned completely into females. Strikingly, the level of atrazine used in the study — 2.5 ppb — is less than the EPA limit for drinking water contamination.
In the U.S Atrazine is the most common water contaminant, and it was initially approved for use in 1958. It has been banned in Europe since 2005, and groundwater contamination was in fact one of the determining factors behind the ban.
It is said that an estimated 70 million pounds of atrazine are applied to agricultural fields in the United States each year.
Studies looking at human cells and tissues suggest the chemical likely poses similar threats to human health. For example, one study linked atrazine exposure in utero to impaired sexual development in young boys, causing genital deformations, including microphallus (micropenis).
The constant exposure of food and fruits that are grown in the U.S to the chemical Atrazine, has also been fingered as one of the major contributors to the changing hormones of the young male population. More boys now see themselves as girls, than they did 10-20 years ago. Although it is safe to say a lot of other factors contribute to this altering of hormones.
There have been many arguments about these researches. Many have questioned them basically on the grounds that they raise questions of professionalism on the authorities in charge of the health of the citizens. Others too have refused the reports because they suggest a plot to increase homosexuality in young men (or women).
But what we have chosen to do here is to bring this knowledge to the fore, as we try to combat the increasing emasculation and
We live in a world where the health of millions rely on the research and results of a few scientists and doctors. And sometimes when these results raise a red flag, big companies and governments who make money from such chemicals and products will sit on the reports.
The world consumes such products and after a few decades, the results begin to show. But even at that, the world is left in the dark to chase shadows.
If Europe banned Atrazine from being used in their farms and water treatment, then, of course, there is something wrong with the chemical. Or maybe they saw the future and decided to save themselves from a male hormone depressant.
If Atrazine and other chemicals can change the hormones of male frogs into female frogs, then scientists should really take time to study its effects in humans, considering the number of decades the population has been ingesting this chemical through food, fruits
