During the Gun Policy & Safety segment on C-Span, Hogg stated:
“For example, on InfoWars, one of his most famous statements is saying that tap water turns frogs gay, and it will turn you gay, too. First off, gay people are awesome, I don’t think that’s a problem at all…”
The conversation went on to imply that Alex Jones must be insane for thinking that chemical contaminants in the water supply might alter sex hormone expression in mammals — even though this has been exhaustively documented throughout the scientific and medical literature.
Take a look at what the scientific literature actually says about atrazine and gay frogs, because you might just be shocked to learn this link has already been exhaustively proven. (Read Pesticides.news for more coverage of pesticide toxicity and water supply contamination.)
Berkeley News: “Pesticide atrazine can turn male frogs into females”.
Atrazine, one of the world’s most widely used pesticides, wreaks havoc with the sex lives of adult male frogs, emasculating three-quarters of them and turning one in 10 into females, according to a new study by University of California, Berkeley, biologists.
The 75 percent that are chemically castrated are essentially “dead” because of their inability to reproduce in the wild, reports UC Berkeley’s Tyrone B. Hayes, professor of integrative biology.
Listen to Tyrone Hayes explain his findings, even as he is being attacked and defamed by both the pesticide companies and the radical anti-science Left:
PLOS One science journal: Environmentally Realistic Exposure to the Herbicide Atrazine Alters Some Sexually Selected Traits in Male Guppies.
Male mating signals, including ornaments and courtship displays, and other sexually selected traits, like male-male aggression, are largely controlled by sex hormones. Environmental pollutants, notably endocrine disrupting compounds, can interfere with the proper functioning of hormones, thereby impacting the expression of hormonally regulated traits. Atrazine, one of the most widely used herbicides, can alter sex hormone levels in exposed animals.
