Birth-Control Pills Poison Everyone?
While environmentalists are usually vocal about perceived threats ranging from pesticides to global warming, there is a silence when it comes to one threat already harming the water supply: hormones from birth-control pills.
According to the National Catholic Register, EPA-funded scientists at the University of Colorado studied fish in a mountain stream near Boulder, Colo., two years ago.
When they netted 123 trout and other fish downstream from the city's sewer plant, they found 101 were female, 12 were male, and 10 were strange "intersex" fish with male and female features.

The most disturbing thing, and I will have to dig it up, I have ever heard about birth control is...
In Bloomington Indiana, IU, my sister attended and graduated from IU, and she said that because of there being so many girls there and all taking birth control, the tap water, for a while, caontained the chemicals found in birth control. See, the human body does not absorb the pills entirely, so they piss it out. The filtration was not catching it either, so these girls, and boys, when drinking tap water, were consuming the birth control substance. This had caused alot of females to go infirtle, forever.
I will find the article she showed me.
