Can women rely on the New York Times medical expert's vagina monologues?
If you own a vagina, a vajajay, a hoohah, a pussy, a pooter, a fuzzy wuzzy, a wookie or that unmentionable thing "down there"-- real news, the venerable New York Times, understands your need for a trustworthy expert.
The need for feminine public education is so dire that Netflix is streaming a documentary called a Guide to Cheating Death, promoted by real news (VICE).
Produced by Tim Caulfied-- a lawyer by training, and a health and science policy researcher by industrial inclination. The first episode stars New York Times vagina expert, Dr. Jen, and costars Dr. Schwarcz, a chemist by training; and a religious expert, Alan Levinovitz--with no, none, zero scientific expertise of any sort.
New York times selected a medical expert to help you keep your vagina fine-tuned like a Stradivarius.
She will teach you how to clean it--don't,... it's like a self-cleaning oven. No joke!
Yes, she is a quadruple boarded obstetrician/gynecologist licensed to put women into stainless steel stirrups, insert cold metal duck lips called a speculum to conduct clinical pelvic exams, with decades of experience in abortions.
Here she is in NetFlix Life Saving Cheating Death documentary not clutching pearls, but an anatomically correct vagina-- edumificating women using a rigorous, evidence-based approach
[No Fido, calm down. Stop. It's not a squeaky dog toy! That stuffed fuzzy pink thingie is a female sexual reproductive organ called a vagina with labia, urethral opening and a clitoris. We'll search Chewys for doggie toys later.]
You can look up Alan Levinovitz, her documentary costar on Twitter where he is retweeted by a giant network of industry non-affiliated non-marketing scientists just like Dr. Jen, who regularly promotes famous non-Monsanto affiliated trolls and "non-profits"
Guess what five minutes of googling reveal about Jen Gunter's Netflix costar, the acclaimed scientist, Dr. Joe Schwarcz. Nothing much.
He just happens to work on messaging with Crop Life, a pesticide industry trade group.
And here she is being promoted by Monsanto's employee Vance Crowe.
You know... Monsanto? The ones who gifted the health community with health-promoting bovine growth hormone, DDT, Agent Orange, PCBs, and GMOs including GMO cotton sprayed with a variety of health-promoting herbicides, like glyphosate (a ubiquitous antibiotic and probably carcinogen dubbed tomorrow's asbestos) and 2,4-D (cousin to Agent Orange)
Can you guess what the documentary debunks? Public concerns about toxins in food, water, and environment, of course, framing health-conscious people as religious, science illiterate fanatics. It's obviously outrageously irrational to want non-pesticide drenched food. Treating food like medicine is extremist and abjectly unscientific in the 21st century.
"Tear down celebrities who speak out...the problem is that the public really does have a celebrity worship culture. But the good news is that there is nothing the public likes more than tearing down celebrities and playing up the hypocrisy angle."
So...Goop Jade eggs in vaginas are ....a thing!!!
Dr. Jen knows how to science.
Very curiously Dr. Gunter minimizes concerns about tampons devoting a fraction of a fraction of effort to educating women about tampons. Unlike Goop jade eggs, millions of women use them.
It's estimated that over 18,000 tampons are inserted by an average woman into her body during her menstruating years, compared to irrelevant inert non-absorbing rock eggs.
Dr. Jen's landmark study published in a peer-reviewed journal and she is humbled by the traffic it's getting. She has her scientific priorities straight.
Public Health Win of the Century! Go science!
When your rise to stardom depends on destroying a star with her Yoni Egg--Highly motivated scientifically implausible conclusion: Goop Rock Eggs Kill
How many cases of Toxic Shock Syndrome are on record associated with rock eggs?
You guessed it. ZERO!
Remember, they named it Rely...
the super-absorbent tampon taken off the market linked with a disproportionate number of Toxic Shock Syndrome cases
I am awaiting with baited breath for @DrJenGunter ( fake industry OB-GYN BLATANTLY LYING about incidence of TSS ) to put the Rock Egg through a Syngina ABSORBANCY test @US_FDA uses to regulate TAMPONS https://t.co/S4ypQf3sVb#ToxicShockSyndrome Much more relevant to #womenshealth pic.twitter.com/es0IN0seiL— Notorious KGB Aggie (@beachvetlbc) November 4, 2018
Of course, glyphosate's carcinogenicity and oral ingestion have exactly nothing to do with its antimicrobial effects on vaginal microbiota. Just ask Dr. Gunter.
Question 1: How much blood does a Goop Rock Egg absorb?
And who would want to do that--support organic cotton farmers?
Phew, I learned more than I ever wanted to know about TSS. So, if you have any questions, please post them in comments and I shall share whatever little knowledge I gained researching this highly networked (non-industry-affiliated) medical expert whose pole straight to the top was, no doubt, greased by hard work and scientific expertise rather than $15 billion menstruation industry...
