Johnette Benkovic brought this up

On The Abundant Life show tonight on EWTN Johnette alluded to the effect hormones, in our water supply and meat, is having on men. Do any of you have a link to such research?
I have read a little about the effect of oral contraceptives (thru urine) in our rivers/water.
I will write Johnette but in the mean time . . .

Here’s one article:

Oral Contraceptives In Your Water Supply

I searched under the phrase:
contraceptive hormones water supply

Scary stuff. Even if you have a water filtration system, these chemicals can get through.


thank you.
