Hormones, Brain and Behavior (3rd Edition) has cited the thyroid-homosexuality proposal article

Probably the most authoritative book on the subject of interplay between what the title says, "Hormones, Brain and Behavior" has cited the thyroid-homosexuality proposal article in the latest edition published this month.

Edited by Pfaff DW & Joels M and published by the Academic Press, the key features of the book include;

  • Comprehensive and updated coverage of a rapidly growing field of research
  • Unique treatment of all major vertebrate and invertebrate model systems with excellent opportunities for relating behavior to molecular genetics
  • Covers an unusual breadth of topics and subject fields, ranging from molecules to ecophysiology, and from basic science to clinical research
  • Ideal resource for interdisciplinary learning and understanding in the fields of hormones and behavior.

  • The citation refers to the 2015 study as: "...but the sample was relatively small and the percentage of homosexuality in the sample population was 2%, lower than in the general population (Sabuncuoglu, 2015)." However, that reasoning falls quite short, as a clinical sample of children and adolescents is unlikely to be similar to general population of mostly adult people. For instance, the ADHD percentage in a child psychiatry clinical population may be up to 40%, whereas it is expected to be about 5% in general child  population, and 2-3% in general adult population. While some neurodevelopmental disorders fade with age, some of them increase when minors grow up.
