The Age of Gender Devolution – Boylike Girls. Girl-like Boys – Evolution in Reverdse

The Age of Men-like Women, and Women-like Men
My truest teachers, my patients, have taught me an important lesson: Changing blood testosterone levels are one of the two single best markers for long-term deterioration in health. Simply stated, falling rising testosterone levels without supplementation with the hormone or its precursors in men indicate long-term deterioration in general health in men. On the other hand, rising testosterone levels without hormone-modifying therapies indicate long-term deterioration in health in women.
Rising insulin levels—insulin toxicity of varying degrees—indicate indicate long-term deterioration in general health in women and men.
Falling Sperm Counts
The reports of falling sperm counts among men worldwide are not new. Similarly, changing patterns of pairing in wildlife have also been reported for decades. What do these phenomena signify?
Nature evolved integrated and exquisitely orchestrated hormonal systems to divide humans into two genders slowly, over hundreds of millions of years. These systems include paired hormones and their docking sites on cell membranes called receptor proteins. Hormones cannot function when their receptors are turned and twisted or when they are jammed by synthetic compounds. Let us conduct a thought experiment. What would we expect if the hormone receptors of men and women were immobilized in a layer of grease on the cell membranes and could not respond to their appropriate hormones? Or if these hormone receptors were jammed or destroyed by potent synthetic chemicals and synthetic chemicals with hormone-like structures?
Or, the evolutionary differentiative influences, which produced women and men, were to be attenuated or abolished by environmental or genetic factors?
One would expect that a weakening or disruption of evolutionary influences would gradually result in loss of gender differentiation, such that women and men become “gender-skewed”—females would become “male-like” and males would become “female-like,”so to speak. If some consistent patterns of such gender-skewing caused by specific environmental or genetic factors could be recognized, can a unifying model of “gender devolution”—evolution in reverse, so to speak—be proposed to explain a vast array of seemingly disparate observations concerning gender differentiation?
Low Testosterone State Is Evolution in Reverse
The low testosterone state is a part of the larger spectrum of gender devolution. In the late 1980s, I described the phonemon of gender devolution in which women become men-like and men feel women-like. Its extreme form is the case of couples in which the wife has a higher testosterone level, facial hair, and increased sexual desires while the husband has low testosterone level, muscle weakness, fatigue, loss of libido, and erectile dysfunction.
Hormone Receptor Disruption
Gender devolution is caused by synthetic chemicals that bind to hormone receptors and jam them, often for the life of the receptor protein embedded in the cell membrane. Among the most dangerous compounds in this category are birth control pills and synthetic hormone prescribed for menstrual symptoms (PMS), menstrual irregularities, endometriosis, and polycystic ovary syndrome. Many plastic materials also have xenoestrogen activity, which cumulatively disrupt hormone receptors.
I refer professional readers to Darwin and Dysox Trilogy (2009), the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth volumes of my textbook entitled The Principles and Practice of Integrative Medicine for a detailed discussion of the above subjects, as well as for extended citations. For the general viewership, I recommend my three- DVD set video seminar entitled “Hormones.”
