Something in the water.


Breaking news!!!  Atrazine...
.
Gender bender chemical atrazine widely contaminates U.S. public water supply.
.
Even the EPA's "safe" level of 3 ppb, however, may be far too high; studies suggest that atrazine is biologically active in levels as low as 0.1 ppb, mimicking the action of hormones in the body. A recent meta-analysis of 125 studies by researchers from the University of South Florida found that the chemical causes developmental and reproductive defects in amphibians and fish. Another study, conducted by University of California-Berkeley researchers and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that small amounts of atrazine lowered testosterone levels and fertility in male frogs. Many of the frogs were chemically castrated or even turned into females. - Study

That explains a lot, huh?  No more worries...

  1. I suppose that's one way to normalize homosexual behavior - chemicals!

    So what should I do next - listen to my Adam Lambert CD, or watch Season 1 of 'Glee'?

  4. I guess it was to be expected that we should get what we desired most - sex without responsibility and no babies.

    What a quandry science has put us in, as no one would ever consider giving up their birth control yet it's going to wipe us off of the planet but not before a lot of genetic damage is done. I'm begining to wonder - how long does a person, nation, world pay for their sins? I also am wondering out lound if sexual sins aren't the most offensive to God and the ones which put our souls in the most peril.
