Mike Gaskins Period Party Podcast

Mike Gaskins is a media writer/producer who began his journey as a women’s health advocate after a world-renowned physician lied to him about birth control side effects. This chance encounter triggered a passion for research that led Mike to discover many shocking levels of deceit and misinformation surrounding these potent drugs. He is passionate about exposing the very real dangers of hormonal birth control and his new book, In the Name of The Pill explores the dubious nature of both the history and science of hormonal birth control.

In this episode, we talk about the shocking link between autoimmune diseases and the pill, the importance of the Nelson Pill Hearings, how doctors altered the benefit-risk paradigm to get the pill approved, why it’s risky for the public to accept the pill as being generally safe, and so much more!
