I don’t like to be sarcastic but we humans are in the process of saving the planet from ourselves. While I reported on declining sperm counts before, this new report says that not only is the decline ongoing, but accelerating.

My mantra in healing is largely 3 factors: improper nutrition, toxins and stress. Considering the obesity epidemic, the state of nutrition is in crisis. But sperm counts are more likely determined by toxins, particularly chemicals that are hormone disruptors leading to feminization in men.

The plunging sperm counts (59%) in humans may be the canary in the coal mine. And if it continues, we just may save the planet from ourselves by taking us out of the picture with inability to propagate.

I want healthy sperm as an indicator of my health. This is most alarming. It has relevance to a lot of social problems as well, such as gender identity. I am one who happens to believe that you can be born one physical sex and due to things like chemicals, your brain gets wired differently than your biological sex.

Perhaps Monsanto’s Roundup is to blame in part, along with all the other agrichemicals and petrochemicals dumped into our environment. While having a libertarian political bent, I do believe it is a role of government to protect the environment since we each have a God given right to clean air, water, food, etc. I know there are those who think that climate change is going to wipe us out. I’m not here to discuss that, but the destruction of the environment certainly will, and the destruction is accelerating. That is evidenced by the catastrophic decline in sperm counts and the obscuring of gender in lower animals exposed to our pollution.

Will we see this happen in our lifetime? I doubt it. When I contacted two California legislators about GMO and protecting our right to know the source of our food, I was told bluntly, that Monsanto owns the legislature. That will be true across the board in every state, and the Congress, regarding the nefarious influence of corporate interest in our alleged government.

“”””In the first systematic review and meta-analysis of trends in sperm count, researchers from the Hebrew University-Hadassah Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai report a significant decline in sperm concentration and total sperm count among men from Western countries. The study is published today in Human Reproduction Update, a leading journal in the fields of Reproductive Biology and Obstetrics & Gynecology.
By screening 7,500 studies and conducting a meta-regression analysis on 185 studies between 1973 and 2011, the researchers found a 52.4 percent decline in sperm concentration, and a 59.3 percent decline in total sperm count, among men from North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand who were not selected based on their fertility status. In contrast, no significant decline was seen in South America, Asia and Africa, where far fewer studies have been conducted.
The study also indicates the rate of decline among Western men is not decreasing: the slope was steep and significant even when analysis was restricted to studies with sample collection between 1996 and 2011.
The research was led by Dr. Hagai Levine, Head of the Environmental Health Track at the Hebrew University-Hadassah Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine, Jerusalem, with Dr. Shanna H Swan, Professor in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, and an international team of researchers from Brazil, Denmark, Israel, Spain and the United States.
While declines in sperm count have been reported since 1992, the question has remained controversial because of limitations in past studies. However, the current study uses a broader scope and rigorous meta-regression methods, conservatively addresses the reliability of study estimates, and controls for factors that might help explain the decline such as age, abstinence time, and selection of the study population.
“Given the importance of sperm counts for male fertility and human health, this study is an urgent wake-up call for researchers and health authorities around the world to investigate the causes of the sharp ongoing drop in sperm count, with the goal of prevention,” said Dr. Hagai Levine, the lead author and Head of the Environmental Health Track at the Hebrew University-Hadassah Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine, in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Faculty of Medicine.
The findings have important public health implications. First, these data demonstrate that the proportion of men with sperm counts below the threshold for subfertility or infertility is increasing. Moreover, given the findings from recent studies that reduced sperm count is related to increased morbidity and mortality, the ongoing decline points to serious risks to male fertility and health.
“Decreasing sperm count has been of great concern since it was first reported twenty-five years ago. This definitive study shows, for the first time, that this decline is strong and continuing. The fact that the decline is seen in Western countries strongly suggests that chemicals in commerce are playing a causal role in this trend,” Dr. Shanna H Swan, a professor in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York.
While the current study did not examine causes of the observed declines, sperm count has previously been plausibly associated with environmental and lifestyle influences, including prenatal chemical exposure, adult pesticide exposure, smoking, stress and obesity. Therefore, sperm count may sensitively reflect the impact of the modern environment on male health across the lifespan and serve as a “canary in the coal mine” signaling broader risks to male health.””””

What’s the Matter with Roundup?

As the toxicity of herbicides like 2,4D became increasingly clear, some turned to products with the active ingredient glyphosate, like Roundup and Rodeo.

Glyphosate is a broad spectrum post-emergent, systemic, and non-selective herbicide used to kill broad-leaved, grass, and sedge species. It’s the nation’s second most commonly-used home and garden pesticide, and the third most commonly-used on industrial and commercial land. Each year 38 to 48 million pounds are used in the U.S., with about 25 million applications in U.S. households. [Footnote 1]

Unfortunately, while better than 2,4D, Roundup is not as safe as some believe (or even claim!). Here are some important facts:

* Harm to Humans and Animals. Glyphosate products are acutely toxic to humans and animals, with symptoms like eye and skin irritation (lasting up to 7 days), cardiac depression, gastrointestinal pain, vomiting, and accumulation of excess fluid in the lungs.

Glyphosate is the highest cause of pesticide illness for California landscape maintenance workers, and the third most commonly-reported cause of pesticide illness among agricultural workers.

One ingredient in Roundup (POEA) is actually more toxic than glyphosate, with the combination even more toxic. (The testing that allowed Roundup on the market was just for glyphosate, not the full formula, a serious flaw in the pesticide regulation system.)

Even ordinary use of Roundup can cause problems. One user wiped their face with a hand that had contacted leaky Roundup spray equipment &endash; and got a swollen face! Another spilled Roundup and got recurrent eczema of the hands and feet for two months.

And then there’s the county highway worker who sprayed thistles which then cut through his overalls. He was hospitalized with severe internal chemical burns and blood infection. The next day, his leg was so swollen that his ankle was the size of his knee and he had a 105° fever. The doctor wanted to amputate his leg because of the threat of gangrene. Luckily, he recovered with his leg intact, but the veins in his leg were permanently clogged and burned. [2]

Glyphosate can cause other long-term damage. Population studies show increased miscarriages and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Animal studies show genetic damage, reduced sperm counts, cataracts, and thyroid, pancreas, and liver tumors.

* Harm to Ecosystems. Studies have shown that Roundup kills beneficial insects and is hazardous to earthworms, which are vital for soil health and vitality. [3]

* Long-lasting. The manufacturer’s own tests show that it takes up to 140 days for half the glyphosate to break down or disappear. Residues were found in lettuce, carrots, and barley planted a year after treatment.

* Able to Drift. Tests conducted by the University of California, Davis, found that glyphosate drifted up to 1,300 feet during ground applications. This increases unintended exposure and harm to humans, animals — and plants you want to keep!

This shows that bypassing regulatory agencies with deadly poison on the lie of “substantially equivalent’ is collusion and racketeering in ecocide under the Rico Act.

NEW STUDY: An in vitro study found that Roundup herbicide kills human placental cells at levels allowed in both Australian and U.S. drinking water. The study, done in Australia, found that Roundup was even more toxic to human cells than glyphosate alone and suggests that future studies be conducted on the full formula herbicide, not glyphosate alone. This is the first study to examine the effects of glyphosate and Roundup on progesterone production, which it found to be adversely affected by the death of the placental cells. The study examined human female cells in an in vitro system that models key aspects of reproduction in women. Further study is clearly needed. Looks like human cells are not Roundup Ready. Are you surprised?
