Where's the Data?
A frequently asked question I get is "if IUDs are so bad where's the clinical data?!?"
This is part of the fight with Copper Toxicity because while hundreds of thousands of women using the IUD and some health practitioners have linked the IUD to adverse health affects, very little clinical research has been done - or the research that has been done hasn't been released in fear of the big pharmaceutical backlash.
Women's birth control is a multi billion dollar industry that is prepared to protect it's profits at all costs, even putting women's health at risk like offering the dangerous copper IUD.
So just how much money we talking about?
Paragard alone sold for 1.1 Billion Dollars (CASH) in 2017 to CooperSurgical...
Let that sink in for a moment.
Fact is: There has been no clinical studies testing the safety of IUDs and the affects of heavy metals in the tissues in humans.
Okay, I have your attention now?
Yes. This is all a little "ah la conspiracy theory" feeling, I get it. You want to trust your doctor, the thought of 170 Million IUDs literally being in women's uteruses when they aren't safe is an overwhelming thought. Not just for us, but for the people who put them there, the same people that told our doctors the devices were safe.
Some facts to consider:
- In the US alone since 2000 there have been 70,000 complaints filed with the FDA against one type of the IUD.
- Copper poisoning (from other sources such as drinking water) is a well studied illness. These reports site XXXXmg - XXXXXmg being ingested have adverse affects on human health. Yet - copper IUDs can release up to XXXXXmg of copper into a woman's body every year. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK225400/)
- The US has recently banned the use of copper antifouling on boats because it's detrimental and damaging longterm to sea life, this is the same copper in IUD devices. Ummmm FDA, can you please explain that one?
Want to know more about why the medical implant industry kinda sucks?
While I'm over here blubbering on about IUDs these awesome human's released this documentary about the medical implant industry and even influenced the Essure Coil to be taken off the market this year (along with the help of some amazing women who stood up for their rights!)
Still want to nerd out about the risks of the Copper IUD & Copper Toxicity - not from me?
