He isn’t a doctor or a woman, but he is passionate about exposing the very real dangers of hormonal birth control. 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 recently collaborated with a group of leading physicians and women’s health advocates on a citizen’s petition to the FDA asking for new and stronger black box warnings on all hormonal contraceptives. He frequently writes for websites like Hormones Matter and Natural Womanhood, and his new book, In the Name of The Pill explores the dubious nature of both the history and science of hormonal birth control.
