The Business of Birth Control | Netflix (2021)

About 12 million women have used 'the pill' and about 80% of American women will use it at some point during their reproductive years.  Women have been sold the dangerous idea that disrupting their hormones with 'The Pill' won't have any long term health effects.

Some birth control pills have even caused women to think suicidal thoughts. The pill has serious side effects and women are suffering from severe mood swings, less bone density, weight gain, painful sex and low libido.  Five women in Puerto Rico died while on the pill during the drug trial but the drug companies said that had nothing to do with the pill and they down-played the bad news. 






Toxic Beauty | Amazon Prime (2019)

This documentary by Canadian Phyllis Ellis does an outstanding job of showing the frightening lack of regulation of personal products people use everyday, especially women.  These products are unleased onto an unsuspecting marketplace with untested or barely tested additives that are potentially harmful with carcinogenic compounds they place all over their faces, hair and skin. 
It also reviews the research behind the toxic chemicals that interfere with the body's natural hormones, namely parabens (a class of preservatives) and phthalates (plasticizers commonly found in fragrances) while it follows the personal lives of women who are fighting for justice.

Toxic Beauty might be a documentary about the unseen killers lurking personal products, but it also can be viewed a hopeful message for change.
