The Pill makes you stupid. Fact!


If this research is anything to go by, then you may want to reconsider your birth control options. And fast!

A recent study published in the journal Brain Research reveals that the effect of the oral contraceptive on the brain is likely to be extensive.

The report found that our faithful pilletjie has structural effects on parts of the brain that controls higher-order cognitive activities, suggesting that a woman taking it may not be herself – or is herself, on steroids.

Shocked? So are we!

Think more medical investigation and research needs to be done in this regard, or are the findings of this study enough to frighten you?
