Study Shows Cross-Sex Hormones Cause Heart Problems

According to a January study from the Netherlands, administering cross-sex hormones (giving estrogen to gender-confused boys and testosterone to gender-confused girls) is not the safe solution the medical community and trans activists have been touting for those with gender dysphoria.

The long-term effects of using this kind of sex-change therapy can lead to increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and deep vein thrombosis. Men transitioning to a female appearance through cross-sex hormones suffered more than twice as many heart attacks as women, and nearly twice as many strokes and 4.5 times as many deep vein clots as men not seeking to transition their appearance. While the researchers found no statistical differences with respect to strokes and deep vein clots for women transitioning to a male appearance, they did find those women suffered almost four times as many heart attacks as did women not “transitioning.”

A 2018 George Washington University study also found a connection between this kind of hormone therapy and cardiovascular disease.

In a related development, Brown University has reposted a virtually unchanged 2018 study by Dr. Lisa Littman that showed rapid onset gender dysphoria was merely a psychological condition triggered by peer pressure rather than biology. Brown University was pressured by trans activists to take the research down as part of a post-publication review.

Holland’s Death on Demand Extends Beyond Terminal Illnesses

The Netherlands was the first country to legalize physician-assisted suicide in 2002. Since then, the country has gone from euthanasia for those with terminal illnesses to death for those who suffer from some kind of psychiatric illness or dementia or are simply struggling with old age.

At the forefront of this death on demand is Life’s End Clinic, which is responsible for a significant percentage of the euthanizing and is the featured clinic in a controversial documentary by the same name. The film reports not only on negligence on the part of Life’s End Clinic doctors, but also reports on the subjective approach they bring to the decision to euthanize a patient. It has gotten to the point that even some early proponents of the procedure are questioning whether sufficient safeguards are in place.

To make matters worse, a bill was recently filed in the Dutch parliament that would make euthanasia legal for anyone age 75 or older who felt his or her life was complete and wished to die. The Netherlands continues down a slippery slope.
