|update on pills and more|
Haven't updated in a while so here is a catch up....
New birth control device has nasty side effects and is not any more effective than the BC pill (about 60%), if that. Natural Family Planning... 95% effective and 100% safe - any reason to not switch? Essure is an implanted device in the uterus but the small coils have been found in several other places in the body like embedded in the colon. Other side effects women have experienced with Essure, are include perforated organs, fetal disfigurement due to nickel poisoning, chronic pain, exhaustion.
S/ex change operations - Johns Hopkins is still not doing "gender reassignment" surgery because they found in their studies, a greatly increased rate of suicide in post ops (suicide rate in post ops of gender reassignment surgery is 20% higher than in the general population).
Weight Loss - And in case you were thinking of using "Garcinia Cambogia" (advocated on TV) as a weight loss supplement, you might want to reconsider it - apparently recent studies found it neither safe nor effective.
