5 Health Problems Linked with Low-Level Pesticide Exposure

Pesticides

Though pesticides are dangerous at high levels, recent studies have also suggested they may cause health problems at low levels of exposure, as well.
For years, we’ve been assured that the small amount of pesticides we ingest from foods won’t harm our health, but recent research is casting doubt on that theory.

It’s true that high levels of exposure are more dangerous, and have been linked with cancer, memory loss, and Parkinson’s disease. But small amounts, such as those that many of us are exposed to on a daily basis, may also increase risk of health problems over time.

Here’s a glimpse at what the science has found, along with steps you can take to protect your family. (more…)

How Monsanto has Completely Invaded your Reproductive System

death-ROUNDUP-41

Recent research has brought to light the danger that the herbicide glysophate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, poses to the human reproductive system. From causing infertility to being present in the womb and now being found in breast milk, Monsanto has indeed infiltrated the reproductive system in a very dangerous way.

Glysophate Causing Infertility

In a study published in 2012, it was shown that RoundUp can affect and deform the formation of embryos of animals. Here’s an excerpt from the abstract:

 

The publication of a study in 2010, showing that a glyphosate herbicide formulation and glyphosate alone caused malformations in the embryos of Xenopus laevis and chickens through disruption of the retinoic acid signalling pathway, caused scientific and regulatory controversy. Debate centred on the effects of the production and consumption of genetically modified Roundup Ready® soy, which is engineered to tolerate applications of glyphosate herbicide[full study here].

A Russian study found that Hamsters fed GMO soy became infertile after two or three generations. (more…)

Can Cinnamon Improve Fertility?

About 11% of women in the U.S. have difficulty getting pregnant or carrying a pregnancy to full term in the 15-24 year age group.1 Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is commonly the cause.

PCOS is a hormonal condition in which women produce excessive amounts of androgens. The ovaries may grow cysts, which can lead to hormone imbalances and difficulties with ovulation.

Symptoms of PCOS may include menstrual irregularities, weight gain, male pattern baldness, and acne.

BPA Harms At Much Lower Levels Than Previously Thought

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical found in most plastics, cans, and other types of food and drink packaging as well as money, receipts and newer kinds of dental resins. It is a known endocrine disruptor that hijacks normal hormone function – it is often called a gender-bending substance for its estrogen-inducing effects on lab mice.

It has been linked to obesity, infertility and reproductive disorders in both genders, breast cancer, behavioral problems, and more. Earlier this year, its damaging effects on neuro-development were scrutinized and it was shown to cause brain impairment. Two years ago, a Harvard study found a whopping 1200% spike in BPA levels in the urine of people who had recently eaten canned soup. (more…)

Fertility Destroying Chemical Added To Tap, Milk, Salt

Fertility Destroying Chemical Added To Tap, Milk, Salt

Fluoride is promoted above good nutrition as a ‘therapeutic’ chemical necessary to prevent cavities, but it lowers IQ, calcifies the pineal gland and harms fertility, among a wide range of other adverse health effects.

There is no question remaining that fluoride lowers IQ, at least as far as high-quality epidemiological research published in peer-reviewed journals has shown.

Take the conclusion of this systematic review of the literature published in the journal Biological and Trace Elements Research in 2008, which looked at whether fluoride exposure has increased the risk of low intelligence quotient (IQ) in China over the past 20 years:

[C]hildren who live in a fluorosis area [high fluoride exposure] have five times higher odds of developing low IQ than those who live in a nonfluorosis area or a slight fluorosis area.

[See our IQ and Fluoride research page for seven first-hand study abstracts on this connection] (more…)

7 Crazy Things Pesticides Are Doing to Your Body

 Leah Zerbe, Rodale’s

Waking Times

Agrochemicals, home bug sprays, and lawn treatments could be causing chronic illness in your family.

Pesticides are designed to kill, although the mode of action they use to put the stranglehold on pests varies. Whether it’s nerve gas–like neurological disruption, the unbalancing of key hormones, or the stunting of a plant’s ability to absorb life-sustaining trace minerals from the soil, none of the chemical interventions seems all that appetizing, especially considering that chemical residues routinely wind up on and even inside of the food we eat everyday. Pesticides are also blamed for diminishing mineral levels in foods. (more…)

Is the CDC’s Mandated Vaccine Schedule a Health-Disguised Compulsory Sterilization Program?

Wikipedia mistakenly defines Compulsory Sterilization as “Compulsory sterilization (or sterilisation), also known as forced sterilization (or sterilisation), programs are government policies which attempt to force people to undergo surgical sterilization.

But surgery is not necessary to sterilize. During WWII, the Nazis experimented on people at Auschwitz to develop vaccines that sterilize at routine doctor’s appointments under the guise of medical treatment.

In July 1942 Lieutenant General Rudolf Brandt, Himmler’s personal advisor (Strzelecka 1996), contacted Clauberg, asking on behalf of Himmler, [how long it would take] to sterilize 1000 Jewesses. The Jewesses themselves should not know anything about it. As the SS Reich Leader [Himmler] understands it, you could give the appropriate injection during a general examination.

This use of vaccines to sterilize continued beyond WWII, including under the aegis of WHO, where the intent was hidden. (more…)

UC Professor Eyes Permanent Sterilant To Cull US Population

During a speech earlier this year given by University of California-Riverside professor Richard Cardullo, the cottonseed derivative Gossypol is being proposed as an adequate sterilant to bring down the birthrate in the United States. Stating that the substance’s permanent sterilization effects on males is already being considered for widespread use in China and many third world countries, Cardullo calls it “an option” for use within the United States. In addition to Gossypol, the professor advised the attending students to lower their standard of living if the earth is to continue carrying humans on its surface.

Interesting to note that the professor has recently been selected by the National Science Foundation, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to join the Partnership for Undergraduate Life Sciences Education (PULSE) program, funded by the federal government.

GMOs cause animals to lose their ability to reproduce, Russian scientists discover

A study presented at the Days of Defense Against Environmental Hazards in Russia has unveiled once again the implicit dangers associated with the consumption of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). According to Voice of Russia, scientists from the National Association for Gene Security and the Institute of Ecological and Evolutional Problems discovered that animals fed GMOs as part of their normal diet eventually develop the inability to reproduce.
