Is U.S. Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine a danger to the public? What is his mission? Now FDA has warned puberty blocker may cause brain swelling, vision loss in kids; over to you Rachel!

The warning conflicts with U.S. HHS Rachel Levine’s claim that “there is no argument among medical professionals” that youth access to “gender-affirming care,” such as puberty blockers, is valuable
What is wrong with these insane people? What is wrong with Levine? Is this a critical aspect of life for US children? Help me, I am or may be missing something. Does Levine have an agenda? Something about this push makes no sense and now this by FDA raises serious issues.
Levine added. “Every major medical association agrees: gender-affirming care is life-saving, medically necessary, age-appropriate and a critical tool for health care providers.”
However, Florida Department of Health spokesman Jeremy Redfern, whose agency updated its guidelines earlier this year to restrict minors from obtaining gender transition therapies, told Fox News Levine’s claim that “every major medical association” agrees offering so-called “gender-affirming care” saves kid’s lives “isn’t data.”
“Earlier this month, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration added a warning to gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists, commonly known as “puberty blockers,” indicating there were serious risks for youth who take them.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified six cases in females between the ages of 5 and 12, who were taking GnRH agonists, which presented “a plausible association between GnRH agonist use and pseudotumor cerebri.”
Pseudotumor cerebri, also known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension, occurs when the pressure inside your skull spontaneously increases, which can cause brain swelling, severe headaches, nausea, double vision, and even permanent vision loss, according to the Mayo Clinic.”
