CBS Charlotte – Women who have used birth control pills for three or more years are twice as likely to suffer from glaucoma. The study was conducted by researchers at University of California, San Francisco, Duke University School of Medicine and Third Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University, Nanchang, China. It’s the first study showing there may be a link between long term oral contraceptive use and glaucomatous diseases. Researchers went through CDC data from 2005 to 2008 of 3,406 women aged 40 years or older who completed a survey about their vision, contraceptive use and had an eye exam. The woman who used oral contraceptives for three years or longer were 2.05 times more likely to report a diagnosis of glaucoma. The results were the same no matter what kind of oral contraceptive was used. “This study should be an impetus for future research to prove the cause and effect of oral contraceptives and glaucoma,” said Shan Lin, M.D., lead researcher and professor of clinical ophthalmology at the University of California San Francisco. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes if blindness and affects nearly 60 million people worldwide.
So what? You wanna have a baby in 9 months or a blind wife when you’re in your 40’s? Give me a future with the cloudy-eyed broad & her medical marijuana prescription over my life being immediately destroyed by a crying shit machine any day. And don’t even bring up using condoms instead. Condoms? Sorry, but when I lay the sweet pipe I don’t want rubbers involved to take away
an ounce of feeling from my dick the romance from my love-making. Trojans are for whores and strippers, ladies. Keep taking the pill so guys can keep treating you with respect and fire loads all over your intestines without having to clean anything up pleasure you naturally. Eyesight is overrated when you hit your middle-ages anyway. I’d bet if you polled a hundred baby mamas, 79 of them would trade their vision immediately to get rid of their life’s burden. Everybody wins with the pill – don’t let this stupid study tell you otherwise.
