Ghana Issues Oxytocin Warning

Ghana’s FDA (Food and Drug Authority) has issued a warning to pharmacies, hospitals, and health facilities to stop administering and distributing Oxytocin to the public. They say that the drug is currently unregistered in the country and therefore poses a health danger. They say the reason for the warning is because the product is not tested but I suspect that they are fully aware that Oxytocin can be used as an aphrodisiac or date rape drug.

I came across this news alert recently while browsing the net and it immediately caught my attention because I first became aware of Oxytocin as part of my studies at the Dohgon University of Thought. I learned that Oxytocin is a good hormone that is produced when Conscience meets Desire. However, medically speaking; Oxytocin is a hormone that is produced in the hypothalamus gland in the Brain and released into the bloodstream.

Oxytocin is known as the “love hormone” because it plays a role in social bonding, sexual reproduction, and childbirth. Oxytocin is released during physical contact, such as hugging, cuddling, and kissing, and it is also released during sexual activity. It helps to promote feelings of trust, empathy, and connection. In the body, Oxytocin helps to stimulate uterine contractions during labor, and it also helps to stimulate the production of breast milk

In this age of technology coupled with greed and unethical human activity, even a good hormone such as Oxytocin can have a bad side and it shouldn’t be hard for most people to figure out how Oxytocin can be used unethically. Manufactured Oxytocin can be used as a date rape drug. In other words; it can be used to alter emotional mood by arousing sexual desire in people. All it would take is a few drops into the food or drink of that person.  

The source of most black-market drugs including Oxytocin are Indian and Chinese drug companies. American drug companies engineer the drugs and contract their production out to India and China. These countries copy the formulas and create generic drugs, which they sell at a massive discount to poor countries. That doesn’t make American drug companies more ethical than those in India and China, the goal in all cases is to make money.

When countries ban generic drugs, those drugs don’t go away. They will still thrive on the black market where there are no regulations as to how they are used. In the case of Oxytocin, that pandora is already out of the box and can never be put back in. Indian and Chinese companies will continue to push its sale in Africa, no matter the consequence. Ghana’s FDA can only do their best to regulate it at this point.
