Gender dysphoria and autism linked to phthalates, ag practices

What happened to the good Republicans?

Quack Fred Deutsch and South Dakota's extremist legislature have declared a culture war on adolescents and teenagers.

No serious discussion of issues associated with gender identity can be undertaken without the studying the effects of phthalates and other plasticizers on human genetics.
And there are a great many chemicals to which such women may be exposed environmentally with the potential to affect thyroid hormones, among them PBDEs, PCBs, BPA, various pesticides, perfluorinated compounds and certain phthalates. [What are we doing to our children's brains?]
Packaging, packaging, packaging! Phthalate-laden bottled water alone makes up 1.5 million tons of plastic each year.

New analysis has revealed that consumption of sugary drinks results in some 184,000 deaths worldwide each year.

How Coca Cola, Archer Daniels Midland, and News Corpse have fattened themselves and us on sugar water is patently offensive and criminal. Drilling for the petroleum to make containers that end up in landfills is malicious and hateful especially when exposure to plastic can cause hormone changes that can lead to gender dysphoria.
A new study published in Social Science & Medicine suggests that taxation that depends on the number of calories or amount of sugar per liter may be the best approach and could even encourage manufacturers to produce and promote healthier alternatives. Last year, Mexico became the first country to implement a nationwide sugar-sweetened drink tax when it introduced a tax of one peso (around $0.07) per liter – about 10 percent of the price. As well as being a possible approach for sugar-sweetened drinks, this dose approach to taxation could also be effective at controlling unhealthy food consumption, and even fuel consumption.

Mexico has slowed its consumption of beverages with added sugar by taxing the industry.

Treating patients in a surge of obesity, doctors in the United Kingdom are urging lawmakers to pass a 20 percent tax to pay the medical costs to the national health care system.
Chicago consumers of soda pop, energy drinks and other sugary beverages would be taxed — at a rate of a penny per ounce — to curb soaring obesity rates, bankroll school physical fitness programs and chip away at the $30 billion pension crisis at the city and public schools, under a plan proposed Wednesday.

Autism is caused by faulty gut/brain connections even in nanny states like South Dakota. Genetically engineered sugar beet seed contributes to the spectrum disorder in kids.

Cannabis is an effective therapy for autism and it usually only kills by keeping it illegal. Hemp was made illegal in part by lobbyists hoping to build a plastics industry.

Advertising is a gateway drug; it should be subject to increased taxation, too.

I am not convinced that a person's sexual preference is determined at conception or at birth. I have lived with or near more LGBTQ people than many have and every story is different: from hatred of a parent to exposure to hormone-producing environmental contaminants and lack of circumcision. Women bullied or abused by men for most of their lives or men growing up with a cold or absent father have been reasons given for personal choices.

I began life left-handed but my father switched me because of his experience in the military which is geared for the right-handed; and, although I've never had sexual contact with another man so far in 61 years there was a time when androgyny seemed right for me.

This reporter has been chronicling gender bending chemicals in the environment from its beginning. Pfizer's war on humanity is being prosecuted by quacks like Fred Deutsch and their red state fascists.

Here are twenty ways to just say no to plastic.

The specter of Janklow operatives sabotaging Governor George Mickelson's plane still haunts me. Mickelson was South Dakota's last good Republican.

Bake a man a pie and he'll learn to divide by seven. Teach a man piety and he'll crucify the apples then say they died for his sins.


  1. I've had a few people confide to my mother that they had an ex spouse or family member that was transgender and they were somehow able manage it though painfully. A few were very prominent and had much to lose.

    Sounds like the bathroom bill and others will be round #4 at the SD legislature. BPA and chemicals are everywhere disrupting brain chemistry. How many microwave leftovers in Tuperware containers. So many things we later find out we were not supposed to do with chemicals leaching into our food. Plastic bottles engineered for limited use and heat tolerances. All this expose can lead to hormone disruption, sterility and other health issues.

    If these legislators were so concerned about children someone should throw back changing the stat of limitations for clergy abuse in SD rather than chasing phantoms for fundraising and votes.

  2. “David Skelly’s work has shown that these endocrine disrupters cause frogs (in certain bodies of water) to have a very large percentage of female characteristics. They are labeled “intersex” or hermaphroditic, and these traits have been linked to these EDC’s, of which there are thousands. Many of these chemicals have been detected in amniotic fluid.” Psychology Today
