Hormones Influence Sexual Orientation?

The use of Thyroxine, a synthethic hormone, as well as amphetamine-based diet pills has been linked to influencing a higher rate of homosexuality among child-bearing women and their offspring -- prominently females -- according to a new study.

Mothers of homosexuals were at least five times more likely to have taken synthetic thyroid medications during pregnancy than mothers of heterosexual women and eight times more likely to have used amphetamine-based diet pills such as Dexedrine and diethylpropion. The effects were felt the strongest among women whose mothers took these drugs during the first trimester of their pregnancies.

Scientists studied more than 5,000 mothers of U.S. and Canadian students and members of gay and lesbian support groups, searching for links between prescription drugs taken during pregnancy and the sexual orientation of their children. Conversely, some drugs have the opposite effect during pregnancy, according to the study, reducing the probability of homosexual offspring. In fact, mothers of heterosexual males were 70 percent more likely to have taken drugs to combat nausea than those of male homosexuals.

It's important for me to emphasize here that the link was connected with synthetic thyroid hormones and NOT natural hormone therapies like Armour thyroid. Although conventional physicians use the excuse that synthetic hormones provide steadier levels, they forget the vast majority of people cannot convert the T4 to the active form of thyroid which is T3. (This is easy to confirm by measuring the free hormone levels, but very few doctors use these tests.)

A 1999 study demonstrated a natural hormone was far better at controlling the brain problems commonly found in hypothyroidism. Nearly all natural medicine doctors tend to use Armour thyroid which is a mixture of mono and di-iodothryonine and T3 and T4, the entire range of thyroid hormones.
