Male birds that eat mercury-contaminated food show “surprising” homosexual behavior, scientists have found.
In a recent experiment in captive white ibises, many of the males exposed to the metal chose other males as mates.
These “male-male pairs did everything that a heterosexual pair would do,” said study leader Peter Frederick, a wildlife ecologist at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
Recent pollution-control measures have “grossly reduced” [mercury] contamination, Frederick said. Even so, the new study shows that ibises experience “fairly major reproductive problems at pretty low levels of [mercury].”
The metal also impacted heterosexual couples. Overall, female birds exposed to mercury yielded 35 percent fewer babies than the control group.
The biological mechanism for how the metal causes homosexual actions is not totally understood, Frederick added.
Mercury is a known endocrine disruptor—a substance that mimics or blocks the production of natural estrogen. In this case, exposed male birds’ bodies produced more estrogen than testosterone as compared with control birds.
As I and others like PA have said, the 21st Century will be marked by the renunciation of 20th Century modernity.
We either turn our backs on the Poz and all its works, or we die off as a race and a heritage.
