I fired the doctor, after throwing quite a tantrum in the office and then weaned myself off HRT.

i guess i am the only one here that does not totally agree. some people NEED to be on meds. i will use myself as an example. i take three and 1/2 pills per day and they keep me stable. if i did not have them i would be off my rocker.
they are psych meds and they work.
i will also say that about a year ago i had a prostate infection and i had to take cipro. i wanted to die man. it was the most miserable week of my life. i NEEDED the cipro.
not all meds are bad it's just that sometimes they are over prescribed

It concludes: "Males of species from each of the main classes of vertebrate animals (including bony fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals) have been affected by chemicals in the environment. "Feminisation of the males of numerous vertebrate species is now a widespread occurrence..."
Types of endocrine disruptors All people are exposed to chemicals with estrogenic effects in their everyday life, because endocrine disrupting chemicals are found in low doses in literally thousands of products. Chemicals commonly detected in people include DDT, Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's), Bisphenol A, Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE's), and a variety of Phthalates. There is a some dispute in the scientific community surrounding the claim that these chemicals actually disrupt the endocrine system. Many believe that there is little evidence that the degree of exposure in humans is enough to warrant concern, while many others believe there is evidence that these chemicals pose some risk to human health. Some researchers are investigating the health risks to children of endocrine disrupting chemicals. Bisphenol A has come under a great deal of scrutiny as it is a common component of plastic baby bottles. In March 2007, a class action lawsuit was filed in California charging that manufacturers and retailers of plastic baby bottles failed to warn consumers that their products contained Bisphenol A, a chemical that they allege poses developmental and health risks to infants and children.
i agree with you on the indiginous people or people outside the united states (we seem to be a target) but since i read about endocrine disruptors en.wikipedia.org... it seems to contradict that statement. just take a look at the link www.endocrinedisruption.com... and discover this:

Our immune systems were born perfect upon birth (unless conceived by drug tainted parents. Knowingly or through medical vaccinations)
In the early 1990’s, it was revealed that the traditional toxicological testing protocols used to determine chemical safety had completely missed vast numbers of chemicals that penetrate the womb and interfere with the construction and programming of developing animals, including humans.

So you are overweight, and totally out of shape, and because of that you take 20 pills a day, where if you lost the weight and actually worked your body a little you would be taking maybe 1 or 2, or none.
So this journal is really not about the political debate. Of course, neither side has it right, but that's beside the point. If we want an efficient, intelligent and generally acceptable solution to the healthcare conundrum, all we need to do is to change to a nonprofit system. Not a government run system or a profit-based system, but rather one that is simply designed to pay for itself without the added burden of providing profits for shareholders.
