No Babies and Androgenous Fish: The Success of The Pill

Been fishing lately? Pulled up some really wierd-looking specimens?

You're lucky you got any at all--boy fishies are becoming rare, but sorta-kinda-girly-boy fishies are beginning to....ah....surface:

EPA-funded scientists at the University of Colorado studied fish in a mountain stream near Boulder, Colo., two years ago.

When they netted 123 trout and other fish downstream from the city's sewer plant, they found 101 were female, 12 were male, and 10 were strange "intersex" fish with male and female features.


This is not exactly "news;" we've mentioned it before. But somehow, it's escaped the attention of the MSM, whose worship of stunted families is even more serious than their worship of the environment. In other words, given the choice between free sex and a healthy fish population....

Just sayin'.

For you trial attorneys out there, here's a hint: it's J&J's fault.

The main culprits were found to be estrogens and other steroid hormones from birth-control pills and patches that ultimately ended up in the creek after being excreted in urine into the city's sewers.

The reaction from one natural sciences researcher is telling:

It's "the first thing that I've seen as a scientist that really scared me," university biologist John Woodling told the Denver Post.

Proving he doesn't watch too much 'Hollywood Insider' TV.

This is scary...I go to a NFP doctor now, but at one time went to a doctor who used the pill as a cures-all. I left him.
