The Birth Control Pill, A Crime Against Nature

News that it "could screw up a woman's ability to sniff out a compatible mate" — The Pill Makes Women Pick Bad Mates. Here's how:
    Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genes are involved in immune response and other functions, and the best mates are those that have different MHC smells than you. The new study reveals, however, that when women are on the pill they prefer guys with matching MHC odors.
Who'd have thought that blocking something as fundamental as the fertility cycle could have far-reaching side-effects? They extend even farther; let us not forget this report on the unreported havoc wreaked by "estrogens and other steroid hormones from birth control pills and patches, excreted in urine into the city’s sewage system and then into the creek" — Contracepting the Environment.
