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.

Feds Seize and Redistribute Medical Supplies From Preppers in Unprecedented Power Grab
So much for private property rights.
The federal government has seized 192,000 N95 masks in New York and New Jersey and will redistribute the goods, having arbitrarily determined that these items were being “hoarded” during the coronavirus crisis.
The Department of Justice is working with the Health and Human Services agency to enforce this Soviet-style forced redistribution of private property. This is part of a crackdown by the Department of Justice’s COVID-19 Hoarding and Price Gouging Task Force.
Aside from the N95 respirator devices, the feds also seized 598,000 medical grade gloves and 130,000 surgical masks. They additionally confiscated N100 masks, disinfectant towels, procedure masks, bottles of hand sanitizer, bottles of spray disinfectant, surgical gowns and particulate filters from the individuals determined to be hoarding and gouging.
The Trump administration defends infringing on private property rights with the coronavirus pandemic being used as the excuse. They intend to crackdown on others who they deem to be too prepared during the crisis.
“Cracking down on the hoarding of vital supplies allows us to distribute this material to the heroic healthcare workers on the front lines who are most in need,” said HHS Secretary Alex Azar. “The seized resources were distributed in days to the doctors, nurses and first responders who need them.”
“This is the first of many such investigations that are underway,” said Peter Navarro, DPA Policy Coordinator and Assistant to the President.
“Our FBI agents and other law enforcement agencies are tracking down every tip and lead they get, and are devoting massive federal resources to this effort. All individuals and companies hoarding any of these critical supplies, or selling them at well above market prices, are hereby warned they should turn them over,” he added.
“If you are amassing critical medical equipment for the purpose of selling it at exorbitant prices, you can expect a knock at your door,” said Attorney General Bill Barr.
The COVID-19 Hoarding and Price Gouging Task Force was started earlier this week in order to target citizens who took precautions heading into the coronavirus pandemic. Anyone who is prepared for a long-term crisis could be met by jackboots at their doors because of this federal overreach.
“The pandemic continues to cause anxiety and uncertainty across the country. At a time when our country needs to join together, it is repugnant that fraudsters will try to take advantage of our communities,” said U.S. Attorney District of Alaska Bryan Schroder when he announced the formation of the task force.
The legacy of coronavirus may be the death of American civil society, as the Bill of Rights and Constitution become lost vestiges of the past.
