A male contraceptive pill is entering clinical trials after showing promising results in early research studies.

Studies show the male contraceptive pill prevented nearly 99% of pregnancies in mice, according to Yahoo! News.

The pills, developed by the University of Minnesota, is known only as YCT529. Dr Gunda Georg, one of the researchers, described the pill as "very, very promising".

In trials on mice the pill was very effective and side effects were minimal and not permanent.

Female contraceptive pills have been available on the market for 60 years. But pills for men have been slow to bring to market because the pills target the male sex hormone testosterone.

"The female pill has been available for 60 years now, and the male pill has lagged behind," said Georg.

A pill that decreases testosterone in men would increase feminine characteristics such as breasts and feminine voices. Side effects would include weight gain, depression, and mood swings, which may not be appealing to macho men.

"Scientists have been trying for decades to develop an effective male oral contraceptive, but there are still no approved pills on the market," Abdullah Al Noman, a graduate student at the University of Minnesota, said in a statement.

Nearly half of males responding to a survey said they are willing to take the pill.

The American Medical Association's new accreditation guidelines suggest genetic testing of Black patients is racist - and such testing must end.

The AMA and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) are the same groups that recently released a new "Health Equity" guidance banning common terms such as "morbid obesity."

The AMA and AAMC claim genetic testing of minority patients is racist and can "create harm" and "leads directly to racial health inequities."

However, some medical conditions disproportionately affect minorities, such as Blacks, Hispanics and Jews.

Sickle cell anemia is more common in people of African descent (8 of 10 sickle cell patients are Black). The sickle cell trait can also affect Hispanics.

The AMA and AAMC also recommended that the licensing exam for new doctors change from numerical scoring to pass-fail.

A group of Black doctors and professors warn that the new accreditation guidelines puts minorities and the general public at risk of serious harm or death.

Five black professors told the New England Journal of Medicine in March, that denying genetic race testing is "a form of naive 'color blindness'" that would "perpetuate and potentially exacerbate disparities."

Jeff Singer, a general surgeon in Arizona, says "A lot of conditions," such as triple-negative breast cancer, which disproportionately affects Black women - "vary based on genetics. We're talking about matters of life and death here."

Singer argues that the AMA and AAMC's accreditation guidance will result in doctors who are under qualified and put lives at risk.

"They're trying to superimpose social science onto medical science," Singer said. "But as a consumer of health care, I'd just like to know that whoever is treating me is qualified. Because my life is on the line."

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) added heart inflammation warnings to information about the Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 injections.

The warning was added after thousands of vaccinated young adults and children around the world were diagnosed with myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the membrane lining the heart).

Both heart conditions can be fatal and require immediate medical attention. Heart inflammation was diagnosed in people under age 30, including at least 1,200 young adults and children in America.

The Pfizer and Moderna shots use mRNA spike protein technology and require two injections, while the Johnson & Johnson shot uses an adenovirus and requires a single dose.

In related news, the World Health Organization (WHO) is recommending face masks for everyone - vaccinated and unvaccinated - due to the spread of the so-called Covid "delta" variant.

"Vaccine alone won't stop community transmission," the WHO's Dr. Mariangela Simao said.

"People need to continue to use masks consistently, be in ventilated spaces, hand hygiene ... the physical distance, avoid crowding. This still continues to be extremely important, even if you're vaccinated when you have a community transmission ongoing."

Most Americans stopped wearing face masks and face coverings in May, after the Centers for Disease Control issued new guidelines for people who are fully vaccinated.

A physical therapist working at a senior living facility died 2 days after receiving a coronavirus mRNA vaccine.

Haley Link Brinkmeyer, 28, died January 21 after she received an mRNA injection, according to her family.

Her death was reported on the COVID Legal USA blog, which publishes articles that helps people file litigation against companies enforcing mandatory Covid-19 policies such as face masks.

"My 28 year old daughter took the vaccine on a Tuesday and she was dead by Thursday," her grieving mother Shauna O'Neill Link wrote in a comment on Facebook.

Link wrote the comment in response to another user who questioned whether the vaccine caused Brinkmeyer's death.

"You have no idea what the hell you're talking about," Link continued. "Autopsy shows no other red flags. [Coroner] has assured us he will get to the bottom of this vaccine..."

Link speculated that the vaccines are all part of a climate control plan by Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci to decrease the world's population by one billion people in order to save the planet.

"Anything with Bill Gates or Quack Fauci's name attached should be a red flag. Depopulation my folks, depopulation. That's their objective," Link wrote.

The news of Brinkmeyer's death was shared on Twitter by Houston ophthalmologist Dr. Richard Urso who questioned why young people need the vaccines.

"No reason for young people to feel they "need" this vaccine. IFR (infection fatality rate) is extremely low," he tweeted.

All Gas No Brakes host Andrew Callaghan went down to Florida to get comments and reactions to Covid-19 from young Black people on vacation/quarantine.

The footage shows young people denying the coronavirus exists, while others say the virus was developed by the United States for population control. Callaghan posted the footage to Instagram on Thursday.

Young Black people all over the country have resumed their lives as if there is no pandemic.

Nightclubs in Atlanta and Miami are packed, as young people ignore the CDC's advice to wear masks and practice social distancing. Watch the video below to see why the guideline recommendations are falling on deaf ears.

When Barack Obama introduced ObamaCare early in his first term as U.S. president, debates raged on conservative blogs as to the universal healthcare's main objective. Many believed that ObamaCare's underlying purpose was to control the population -- specifically a non-productive, unruly part of the population that continues to breed out of control.

Remember John Holdren, the Harvard professor appointed by Barack Obama to be his "science adviser"? I told you earlier about his book Ecoscience that advocates population control and forced abortions. Well, it turns out Holdren has even more radical views on life than I originally thought.

In 1973, Holdren wrote another book called “Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions” in which he says newborn babies, if given the right "social experiences" after birth, "will ultimately develop into a human being." I had to stop typing long enough to laugh out loud! THIS is the guy that Obama wants advising him on science when he doesn't even know when human life begins?

Are all Harvard professors kooky like Holdren and Skip Gates? Unlike Skip Gates, Holdren is now in control of this country's science policies!

The more I read about this nut job Holdren, the more he begins to sound like Hitler, who also didn't think a segment of society was human and set about solving his "social problems" by building concentration camps.
