Hormone dystopia: artificial evolution of modern men and women? – Episode 009

Hormone dystopia: artificial evolution of modern men and women? – Episode 009

We’re experiencing an artificial hormone evolution. Or is it a hormone revolution? The concentration and distribution of hormones in both males and females is changing. What’s causing this change? And what does this shift mean for men and women, society and culture?

Despite what you learned at your last workplace sensitivity training, there are real differences between men and women. Some subtle. Some powerful. Those important and cherished (sometimes hated) differences are the result of the way hormones control the growth, development, and mental and physical functions of the human body.

Falling testosterone levels in men, precocious puberty in girls, and a loss of fertility are just some of the problems that are part of this artificial evolution.

Is this hormonal dystopia inevitable? Or are there steps you can take to prevent this unhealthy trend?

We discuss the factors that may be contributing to these hormonal imbalances. And the steps you can take to protect your health and the health of your family.

  • Falling testosterone levels in men
  • Increased levels of infertility
  • Precocious puberty in girls

  • PCBs, BPAs, Phthalates -the unholy trinity of xenoestrogens in the age better life through chemistry
  • The “triple-threat” of hormone disruption in our food supply – and the stockyard animal that may be the most tainted
  • The significance of a cow that produces 5,300 lbs of milk per year vs. one that produces 20,000 lbs of milk per year
  • Why are men and women getting fatter?
  • Why doubling your fat may mean doubling your hormonal imbalance
  • The consequences of fooling women into thinking they’re pregnant for years at a time
  • Birth control in your water supply
  • The “quantum” effects of hormonal balance between husbands and wives
  • And Dr. Rumsey’s formal announcement of the end of natural human reproduction

Buhner discusses the relationship between hops and hormones: There is a well known condition in England – Brewer’s Droop – that occurs from middle-aged brewers’ extensive handling of hops plants. The plant chemistries readily transmit through the men’s skin just as they did in the young women in the fields.
