    Gender reassignment surgeries are reportedly on the rise in the United States, according to a major study conducted by The John Hopkins University School of Medicine.

    The researchers analysed data compiled by the National Inpatient Sample (NIS) from 2000 to 2014, which gave them an indication of the number of patients seeking gender reassignment surgery across the country.

    The NIS gathers data from approximately 1,000 hospitals around the US every year, which represents around 95 per cent of the nation’s population.

    Using the data accumulated by the NIS, the team assessed a total of 37,827 hospital appointments for gender reassignment surgery.

    The ages of the patients ranged from 26 to 49.

    The initial analyses of the data were carried out from June to August 2015.

    The authors of the study, which was led by Joseph Canner and Omar Harfouch and published in JAMA Surgery, discovered that the number of patients undergoing genital surgeries has risen drastically in recent years.

    Sperm counts among western men have halved in last 40 years – study
    Reasons for the ‘shocking’ drop are unclear, say researchers, and represent a huge and neglected area of public health

    Sperm counts among men have more than halved in the last 40 years, research suggests, although the drivers behind the decline remain unclear.

    The latest findings reveal that between 1973 and 2011, the concentration of sperm in the ejaculate of men in western countries has fallen by an average of 1.4% a year, leading to an overall drop of just over 52%.

    “The results are quite shocking,” said Hagai Levine, an epidemiologist and lead author of the study from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

    A longitudinal study led by Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the NIH found subtle, estrogen-like responses in infants fed soy formula versus breast milk, and apparently versus cows’ formula, too.

    This is obviously important news for new and expectant mothers who may not be able to breastfeed. The American Academy of Pediatrics strongly recommends breastfeeding but soy is a commonly recommended alternative to breast milk because many babies cannot digest cow-milk formula.

    Virginia A. Stallings, MD, director of the Nutrition Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) said:

    Soy formula contains high concentrations of plant-based estrogen-like compounds, and because this formula is the sole food source for many babies in the first six months of life, it’s important to understand the effects of exposure to such compounds during a critical period in development.

    Like other estrogen-mimicking chemicals found in the environment, genistein can alter the body’s endocrine system and potentially interfere with normal hormonal development. In laboratory studies genistein causes abnormal reproductive development and function in rodents, but little is known about its effects on infants.

    The main differences we found related to different feeding preferences were among the girls,” said Stallings. Compared to girls fed cow-milk formula, those fed soy formula had developmental trajectories consistent with responses to estrogen exposure. Vaginal cell MI was higher and uterine volume decreased more slowly in soy-fed girls, both of which suggest estrogen-like responses. The study team found similar patterns in differences between soy-fed girls and breastfed girls.

    “We don’t know whether the effects we found have long-term consequences for health and development, but the question merits further study,” said Stallings.
