An academic study has revealed that taking birth control pills on a daily basis shrinks the hypothalamus region of the brain in females, and the findings were presented to the Radiological Society of North America on Wednesday.
“It may not represent a risk at all. It may just represent a way we see the effect of how the drug works,” said Michael Lipton, a radiologist at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center in New York City who conducted the research.
Lipton discussed the research at the conference, and he notes that hypothalamus damage can result in change in appetite, sexual drive, and the regulation of blood sugar. The hypothalamus regulates hormones in the body, and this part of the brain is so small that it is difficult to measure through images from a standard scan. Lipton determined the results of the study through a meticulously careful study of MRI scans.
“I like to tell people that for all parts of the body, size matters most in the brain,” Lipton said.
In addition, evidence is growing that birth control usage causes different structures of the brain to change in size. A large body of anecdotal evidence has indicated that women act erratically while on birth control, and now the science is finally starting to back that up.
Lipton points out that more research is needed to build upon this preliminary study, and it will be a long time before the negative ramifications of the reduced hypothalamus are fully understood.
“It might one day be part of the conversation when talking with a doctor about birth control,” Lipton said. “But it’s way too soon to tell.”
Birth control and other contraceptives are having a broader negative impact on society as well:
The latest statistics measuring the American birth rate and total births have been released, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s report paint a dark demographic picture.
The 3.788 million births that took place in 2018 were the lowest that had occurred in a single year since 1986. The birth rate, or average number of children born per woman, continued to decline as well, following a demographic pattern that has been carrying on for many years.
The birth rate declined by 2% to 1.7. A national birth rate of less than 2.0 creates a situation where a population isn’t having enough children to replace itself.
Some demographers and researchers had forecast a rise in the American birthrate as elements of the economy improved over the past few years. However, it seems the economic system of the United States isn’t enabling or encouraging more young Americans to become parents, even though it’s nominally improving.
Demographers ascribe multiple factors to the lowered birth rate among the American population. More women are postponing having children in order to pursue a career or higher education, and economic insecurity is leaving many Americans who would otherwise become parents to opt out, at last temporarily.
While millions of women may feel liberated because of birth control, their liberation comes at the expense of Western Civilization and proper brain function.
President Trump, First Lady Melania Received COVID Vaccine at White House in January
President Trump oversaw the production of the vaccine.
Former President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump received a coronavirus vaccine at the White House in January, according to new reporting Monday from Axios, citing an unnamed Trump advisor.
Three American coronavirus vaccines were development through public-private partnerships during Donald Trump’s presidency. President Trump urged Americans to receive the coronavirus vaccine during his CPAC speech on Sunday.
“We took care of a lot of people — including, I guess, on Dec. 21, we took care of Joe Biden, because he got his shot, he got his vaccine,” Trump said during the speech, his first extended public remarks since leaving the presidential throne. “So everybody, go get your shot.” Biden had gone on to falsely claim that President Trump hadn’t overseen the development and rollout of a vaccine, despite receiving it while his predecessor was President.
Legitimate scientific consensus indicates that the vaccine is largely safe to receive, although individuals with serious health conditions may experience side effects. President Trump and the First Lady had come down with the coronavirus in October, with the couple spending several days at Walter Reed Hospital in DC to recover.
Demographic polling indicates that white Republicans are the most skeptical population group of the coronavirus vaccine, and the Biden administration has generally declined to target outreach promoting the vaccine to the demographic. Other minority groups are more skeptical of receiving the vaccine than white liberals, and the Biden administration’s vaccine outreach has targeted the former. Polling indicates that a plurality of white Republicans don’t intend to receive the vaccine.
The Biden administration has struggled mightily to pick up President Trump’s vaccine distribution program, walking back promises to vaccine a hundred million Americans within several months shortly after entering office.
