    A study finds that an estimated 170,000 people who are transgender in the United States may access hormones from friends, online or other non-licensed sources, which poses health and safety risks.
    From the article: "Researchers evaluated national data and found that 84% of the 27,715 respondents were interested in using hormones, while only 55% were using hormones. Overall, 3,362 (15%) of respondents were uninsured, compared with about 13% of all Americans at the time of the survey in 2015. Among insured respondents, 21% reported that their claims for gender affirming hormones were denied."
