Call To Action: The World Health Organization Is Taking Away Nations Sovereignty

By Jim Hoft,

Many people have wondered what they would have done to stop World War II. Would they have tried to kill Adolf Hitler shortly before he took office in 1933? Well, it’s 2022, and even if you believe Hitler escaped to Argentina in 1945, he’s now dead. World War II happened, and now we have another tyrannical regime opening up to engulf us, but this time it’s GLOBAL.

This is 2022 indeed. From May 22nd-28th, the World Health Assembly is going to vote on amendments to the International Health Regulations (2005). If those amendments pass, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) will become the effective dictator of the world (in case of a “health emergency”).

Article 12, subsection 2 of the International Health Regulations:

Text that is bold are additions or amendments to the original text. Text that’s struck through gets deleted. The highlighted text is the most important part. Let it sink in what removal of the highlighted part means: in case of a health emergency (which can be anything): the Director-General no longer has to consult anyone to set in motion article 49, although he may (or may not) “seek the views of the Emergency Committee.” Article 49 describes the procedures the Director-General has to take when a health emergency occurs. If these amendments are approved by a simple majority of the 194 member countries of the World Health Assembly, these amendments would enter into force as international law just six months later, so November 2022, effectively placing the entire world under the dictates of the Director-General.

Who is the Director-General of the WHO?

The current Director-General of the WHO is Tedros Adhanom Ghegreyesus. Tedros is an Ethiopian official who was elected in 2017 to lead the WHO. Tedros has been responsible for the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, and bringing all countries in lockstep with the WHO regulations. Variability in policy on the National level has been minimal under his leadership.

In 2020 Fox News ran a report which showed the questionable past of Tedros. According to the report, Tedros had covered up three cholera epidemics, supported a terrorist organization, and inflated his resume to claim he had conquered malaria and HIV. Foreign affairs expert Gordon Chang said: “Tedros is the second-to-last person who should be heading the World Health Organization at this time. The last person is Chinese President Xi Jinping.” The Fox article continued to say that Tedros “has been accused of cozying up to countries like China that have pledged millions of dollars to the [WHO].”

There are worries that Tedros does not act as an autonomous man, but acts in the interest of the ‘Great Reset’. Klaus Schwab called the Covid-19 pandemic a “rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world”. A student of the Klaus Schwab Young Global Leaders program, Bill Gates, happens to be the biggest private donor of the WHO, through his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and GAVI. Tedros also repeatedly stated that “[w]e cannot go back to the way things were”. Perhaps that explains why so many policy ‘mistakes’ were made in the fight against Covid-19, if a return to normal was unthinkable from the beginning.

International Health Regulations (IHR)

Most countries, including the US, agreed to the IHR in 2005, which are “legally-binding on 196 countries, including the 194 WHO Member States”. This means even countries who did not agree to the regulations, and even countries who are not WHO members, need to adhere to the regulations. The IHR overrides and supercedes national laws, including the U.S. Constitution.

On January 18th, 2022 it was the U.S. that submitted a number of amendments to the IHR, of which giving full control to the Director-General of the WHO is but one effect. The amendments serve to give away more sovereignty and greatly empower the WHO to restrict health-related rights and freedoms. The World Health Assembly, through representatives of its 194 member states, are going to vote on the proposed amendments to the IHR between May 22-28th, 2022. By virtue of membership of the United Nations and the WHO, the member nations are then automatically bound by its rules.

 

The amendments to the IHR make it perfectly clear that the WHO wants to do more than advise countries, it wants complete control. The WHO “seeks to enforce an authoritarian, one size fits all, “One Health” approach to world health.”

***

It IS 2022, and everyone has a chance to stop this blatant, and dangerous, power grab. We invite everyone to go to James Roguski’s substack and read his entire 8-page article, and reply to his call to action. Mr. Roguski is a researcher and author who discovered the shenanigans we just described.

The Biden regime is preparing to sign an agreement with the corrupt, China-led World Health Organization (WHO) that will give US sovereignty on health care decisions over to the WHO.

The COVID crisis was horrible and horribly managed. China to this day has not been held responsible. The WHO worked with China in predicting massive unfounded mortality losses while recommending shutting down entire economies. They have taken no responsibility for unleashing the lab-created virus on the world.

Now Joe Biden is signing over US autonomy over our healthcare decisions to the WHO and therefore, China.

Dean Michelle Bachmann joined Steve Bannon on The War Room to warn about the proposed amendments to cede US sovereignty to the corrupt World Health Organization.

Exposed: The Real Reasons Behind Media Blackout Of Dinesh D’Souza’s 2000 Mules – Emerald Robinson

From Red Voice Media:

During a recent appearance on Gina Loudon’s show, former Newsmax correspondent Emerald Robinson explained why conservative media outlets like Fox News are avoiding covering the documentary “2000 Mules,” claiming the film presents problems for not only Democrats but also Republicans.

We at Red Voice Media have previously covered the media blackout that Dinesh D’Souza’s “2000 Mules” has been enduring, but what has been most interesting in the silence from the media regarding this film is that even conservative outlets like Fox News and Newsmax haven’t been covering the evidence presented in the film.

Apparently, even Fox News’ primetime breadwinner Tucker Carlson avoids mentioning the documentary, with D’Souza mentioning in a May 9th Twitter post, “I’m sorry to say Tucker Carlson and his team specifically instructed Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote NOT to mention the movie.”

While Robinson was on Loudon’s show, the host asked the former Newsmax correspondent, “Are you surprised at how conservative media is covering, or rather not covering, this 2000 Mules documentary?”

Robinson claimed that she wasn’t surprised in the least when she saw the likes of Fox and her former employer avoiding coverage of 2000 Mules, alleging the film presents problems for these networks.

“Not at all, Dr. Gina, because I have to admit I was just waiting to see when they were confronted with it, face to face, and they actually had to either cover it or ignore it. And Fox News might as well be Helen Keller, and you know, another network that I’m not at liberty to discuss…for contractual reasons, might as well be blind. Because right now, they can’t see or hear anything about election fraud in 2000 Mules. But look, I think in regard to the different outlets, you mentioned corruption or fear. It’s both. And it’s different reasons for different networks.”

Robinson mentioned that Fox News dodging D’Souza’s latest documentary couldn’t be that surprising when considering how quickly they were to call Biden as being the winner of Arizona during election night of 2020.

“When it comes to Fox News, I think you only have to remember back – November 3rd, 2020 – when Fox News called Arizona. 2000 Mules is creating a major problem for both political parties. Not just Democrats but also Republicans, NGOs, Big Tech, corporations – because they all colluded together. The media, the NGOs, Big Tech, and yes, that includes Fox News and the Murdochs who gave money and put power behind getting Joe Biden installed in office. They got caught with this election fraud.”

The former Newsmax correspondent claims that once people see the film, there is no unseeing it – which is why conservative media outlets like Fox News are avoiding any sort of broadcasting of 2000 Mules.

“The biggest trouble for them with 2000 Mules is that once you see it, the evidence is there. There’s no lying about it. There’s no really combatting about what you see there. But for the last 18 months, they’ve been gaslighting their audiences, saying, ‘There’s absolutely no election fraud, and anyone who believes it is basically a conspiracy theorist.’ They’ll play some lip service in primetime; it’s not been, and most of their audience realizes that. And like I said in my Substack, it’s almost like you’re watching a busload full of people who…don’t have the means to be dropped off at a casino, but they’re dropped off at a casino to spend the money they don’t really have. That’s what you continue to see with Fox News.”

Baby Formula Shortage – Disaster or Blessing In Disguise?

Baby Formula Shortage – Disaster or Blessing In Disguise?

There has been a lot of hype about it being difficult to find baby formula on grocer’s shelves.  But there may be a reason for this. A recall.

What many young parents may not be aware of is the level of toxins in these formulas. Some ingredients can cause a fatal intestinal problem with infants and many of you know that some babies are fussy with certain formulas making it necessary to try out multiple brands until you find one your bundle of joy, well, enjoys. But not just enjoys, but can thrive on. If your infant is fussy, pay attention.

These are some symptoms that may point to a problem with your baby formula:

  • Abdominal pain and swelling
  • Diarrhea with bloody stool
  • Green or yellow vomit
  • Changes in heart rate and blood pressure
  • Changes in body temperature and breathing
  • Refusing to eat
  • Lack of weight gain
  • Lethargy

Why is this occurring? This list of toxins found in some formula should make you realize the need to look at the label when shopping or ordering online.

  • Heavy Metals
  • Melamine
  • Soy
  • Gluten
  • Mineral Oil
  • Preservatives
  • Faux Iron
  • Corn Syrup/Sugar
  • Genetically Modified Ingredients (GMO’s)
  • Synthetic Nutrients

Read the full article here.

Other countries have been banning foods with toxic ingredients and fighting against practices such as water fluoridation while the US corporations are not so health centric, but focused more on the bottom line, in dollars and cents (even when it makes no sense!)

Back in March of 2022, the Associated Press posted an article about the lack of sanitary conditions and procedures at the Michigan manufacturing plant recently linked to a cluster of infant illnesses, according to findings released Tuesday by federal safety inspectors.

Yet the FDA is the governing agency that allows toxic addatives in these formulas!

Per Martin/BaughmanPopular Baby Formulas are Linked to Deadly Intestinal Disease

Premature and low birth weight newborns often have trouble nursing or need extra nutrition. Baby foods like Similac and Enfamil are high-calorie, cow’s milk-based products that supply this supplemental nutrition, but do not warn parents of the increased risk that their infant may develop necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a serious gastrointestinal disorder. If not caught and treated immediately, NEC can be fatal.

NEC causes intestinal tissue to die. NEC can also cause holes in the intestine, which allows bacteria from the intestine to leak into an infant’s abdomen. NEC may also lead to the following serious health problems:

  • Abdominal infection called peritonitis
  • Sepsis
  • Intestinal stricture, or narrowing of the intestines
  • Short bowel syndrome, which makes it hard for the body to absorb fluids and nutrients

Even in cases where NEC is identified early and treated, the child may continue to suffer complication throughout its life.

Which baby formulas are involved?

  • Similac Special Care, made by Abbott Laboratories
  • Enfamil Human Milk Fortifier, made by Mead Johnson & Company
  • Enfamil NeuroPro EnfaCare Infant Formula, made by Mead Johnson & Company

How did mothers feed babies before the introduction of formula?

The obvious answer is breastfeeding. However, in todays fast paced living where two incomes are often required to support the basic needs of house, cars, utilities and such, most women switch to fomulas to get back to work sooner. Sadly, some women are unable to produce enough breast milk. In days gone by we could hire a wet nurse to take over that duty. It was once a highly organized and well-paid profession but wet nurses all but disappeared by 1900.

I found this on Facebook and the fact checkers are busy trying to debunk it.

There are safe alternatives. According to myorganiccompany.com, the number 1 cleanest formula is Kendamil Stage 1.  For children who may not be able to ingest whole milk from cows, there is a formula derived from goat milk.

This article shows a list of formulas and foods known to contain toxic materiel but also what formulas and foods are safe.  https://mommyhood101.com/nontoxic-baby-foods-and-formulas 

So, while the shortage of formula may have been a frightening news event, the actual reason for the shortages may have been to raise awareness and pull toxic products off the shelves!

You only need to supply a milk type formula for the first 6 to 12 months of your baby’s life to prepare your baby’s intestinal track for real food. After that, You can always make your own foods in a blender mixed with pure water and any combination of fruit, veg, meat and poultry (but without the seasoning for adult palates).

You can learn how to make your own safe baby formula and baby food with these links.

It’s time we broke away from corporate industrialized food sources and pharmaceuticals which we now realize have been causing health problems from childhood to adulthood. Trading natural healthy foods for convenience is not the answer.

It’s time we got back to the garden.

Governments Worldwide are Working in Lockstep to bring in Digital I.D. & Social Credit System as EU agrees to Expand Online Censorship with ‘Digital Services Act’

Under pressure applied by both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, the European Union is working to expand online censorship to an extreme Orwellian level, as well as strictly regulate speech during what authorities deem to be times of crisis (we always seem to be in the middle of a “crisis”), and remove online anonymity by forcing the public to have a digital identity.

But these plans aren’t unique to the EU. They are also currently being rolled out in the UK and Africa, proving Governments worldwide are working in lockstep to bring in a digital identity and social credit system right under your nose.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both lobbied for the EU to back the censorship bill known as the ‘Digital Services Act‘ on Thursday, April 21st, 2022:

 

 

 

 

From France 24, “EU agrees on new legislation to tame internet ‘Wild West’ “:

The Digital Services Act (DSA) — the second part of a massive project to regulate tech companies — aims to ensure tougher consequences for platforms and websites that host a long list of banned content ranging from hate speech to disinformation and child sexual abuse images.

[…] Tech giants have been repeatedly called out for failing to police their platforms — a New Zealand terrorist attack that was live-streamed on Facebook in 2019 caused global outrage, and the chaotic insurrection in the US last year was promoted online.

The dark side of the internet also includes e-commerce platforms filled with counterfeit or defective products.

[…] The regulation will require platforms to swiftly remove illegal content as soon as they are aware of its existence. Social networks would have to suspend users who frequently breach the law.

The DSA will force e-commerce sites to verify the identity of suppliers before proposing their products.

[…] The European Commission will oversee yearly audits [of Big Tech firms] and be able to impose fines of up to six percent of their annual sales for repeated infringements.

Looking over the outline of the new agreement it’s striking how they seamlessly conflate child sexual abuse material with “illegal hate speech.”

Both are jumbled together as “illegal content.”

The law calls for plans to restrict free speech on the internet during times of “crisis.”

The DSA also pushes for a “public electronic identity (eID),” which Politico previously described as a “National ID card” on your phone that has its origins in vaccine passports and “Digital COVID Certificates.”

Though the eID is sold under the guise of protecting people’s privacy, “digital rights activists … worry the proposal could allow the private sector to better access people’s government-certified information, thereby actually strengthening the likes of Facebook and Google and the targeted advertising industry,” Politico reported.

Working in Lockstep

The UK government is also pushing ahead with its nationwide digital ID plans, despite half of the responses to its public consultation on digital identity opposing the idea.

On April 6, 2022, new digital identity document verification technology (IDVT) that enables data sharing between public bodies and businesses for the purpose of identity verification was introduced. It has been made available to UK employers, landlords, and letting agents who can use it to digitally carry out pre-employment criminal record checks, right to work checks, and right to rent checks.

The introduction of this digital IDVT is part of the government’s far-reaching digital ID plans which were announced in March. The government has framed these digital ID plans as a way for UK citizens to “easily and quickly prove their identity using digital methods instead of having to rely on traditional physical documents.”

Before announcing these digital ID plans, the government sought views and feedback on its proposed approach to digital identity via a public consultation.

50% of the responses to this consultation were “against digital identity in principle” but the government didn’t include these responses in its statistical analysis of responses to the consultation because they “did not engage with the questions.” However, the government insisted that “outside the context of producing the statistical analysis, we have taken these responses into account as part of this consultation exercise.”

The government’s digital ID plans were announced in the same month that the UK government’s Online Safety Bill began its legislative journey. This bill mandates the implementation of identity and age verification technology on many large online platforms.

The UK Government and Bank of England have also been working on a new digital currency in the background to replace cash.

Under the plan pushed by the Chancellor Rishi Sunak, cash in people’s pockets would be superseded by a new ‘Britcoin’ digital currency. It is being framed as “giving the economy a boost in times of financial crisis”. We hope you’re not that naïve.

But the Bank of England and the Government are also questioning how to impose limits on spending digital currency. This could include “restrictions on types of users able to transact in new forms of digital money”.

The UK Government has been working in tandem with other world leaders and the EU to introduce a social credit system and digital identity right under your nose.

In January 2022 the Department of Health and Social Care, currently led by Sajid Javid, launched a new app that allegedly “helps people to make positive changes to their diet and physical activity.”

The pilot scheme has seen users wear wrist-worn devices that can generate personalised health recommendations, such as increasing their step count, eating more fruit and vegetables, and decreasing portion sizes.

Users allegedly collect points for behaviours deemed healthy by the Government, which unlock “rewards”. The Government says these rewards include “gym passes, clothes or food vouchers, discounts for shops, and cinema or theme park tickets”.

Now Italy is about to launch the same scheme.

On 28 March Matteo Lepore, Mayor of Bologna, and Massimo Bugani, councillor for the digital agenda and civic use of data, announced the City’s digital innovation plan 2022-2024.

“We will start with a pilot project for the city: at the center is the virtuous citizen, the one who, for example, separates waste well or does not waste energy, or uses public transport and does not take fines, or is still active with the Bologna Welcome Card. The Municipality says to these people ‘we will assign you a score’, as part of a circular reward with economic benefits to individual users.”

The program will kick off its pilot starting in the autumn of 2022 in Bologna.  Citizens who comply with the radical climate change agenda by displaying “good behaviour,” such as correctly recycling or using public transportation, will be rewarded with cryptocurrency and discounts to local retailers, according to local newspaper Bologna Today.

Even Nigeria is now in on the act after being targeted by Bill Gates’ GAVI in 2020 to introduce a “biometric identity platform.”

Nigeria’s federal government has ordered telecommunication companies to bar calls from phone numbers not yet linked to a National Identity Number. They have also ordered unregistered SIM cards to be disconnected.

In December 2020, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered all phone lines to be linked to an identification number. This was done under the guise of “curbing rising incidents of abductions in the country’s northern region”.

Based on the inability of subscribers to meet the 31 December 2020 deadline, the government had to postpone the deadline for the tenth time.

The government has said that the 11-digit identification number is the foundation for a comprehensive digital ID system that will help to tackle insurgency by militants such as Boko Haram – as well as other crimes.

National Identity Number registration involves the recording of an individual’s demographic data and capturing their fingerprints, photo, and digital signature. The number is required for all transactions requiring identity verification, such as opening a bank account, applying for a driver’s licence, voting, obtaining health insurance, and filing tax returns.

This is in essence a war, and many of you may not even realise you are in it. All the evidence is there, it just needs piecing together. There is a coordinated effort worldwide to bring in a digital identity and social credit system right under your nose.

California to start vaccinating 12-year-old children without parental consent

By Ethan Huff ,

Senate Bill 866 in California has passed, allowing children as young as 12 to now get vaccinated without their parents’ knowledge or consent.

Sen. Scott Weiner, a Democrat from San Francisco who authored the bill, tweeted nonchalantly that California law already allows children aged 12 to 17 the “freedom” to get jabbed for HPV (human papillomavirus) and hepatitis B, as well as to access birth control and “abortion care.”

“SB 866 builds on this existing law to expand vaccine access,” he added, pretending that this is all somehow normal.

The legislation must still pass through the Assembly, the vote counts and lists for which are not yet available on the state’s legislative tracking website. Should it pass in the Assembly, Gov. Gavin Newsom is sure to sign it.

Other states like Arizona have been attempting the same thing in recent years, though no other state appears to be as far along as California.

The Golden State seems to be where the worst perversions start before gradually spreading across middle America and beyond.

“Why does the Left hate children so damn much?” asked someone one Chris Bray’s Substack in response to the news.

Parents object to Weiner’s bill

On Twitter, many parents expressed outrage over SB 866, which is also known as the “Teens Choose Vaccines Act.” One wrote that she “strenuously” objects to Weiner’s bill.

Weiner, on the other hand, expressed his view that parents represent a “serious barrier to teen health in California,” and that the government knows better when it comes to things like pharmaceutical injections, abortion and other modalities of “health care,” especially “in situations where parents and children hold conflicting views about vaccines.”

Weiner’s bill came after Newsom temporarily paused a mandate on Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) “vaccination” at the state’s public schools.

Newsom apparently wanted to first get SB 866 passed before issuing the mandate, that way schoolchildren could decide for themselves, without parental input, whether or not to get jabbed.

As you may recall from last fall, Newsom proudly announced that California was slated to become the first state in the country to require Fauci Flu shots as a condition of getting a public education.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is soon expected to “fully approve” the jab for children 12 years of age and older, which is why the mandate was slated to come into effect by July 1.

Now, however, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is pushing that timeline back to at least July 1, 2023, since the FDA has not yet fully approved the jab for younger children.

Newsom’s office said that once the FDA gives the green light for babies to have their DNA permanently modified with messenger RNA injections, California will lead the way in requiring them as a condition of getting schooled at a government-run indoctrination center.

“CDPH strongly encourages all eligible Californians, including children, to be vaccinated against COVID-19,” said CDPH Director and State Public Health Officer Dr. Tomás J. Aragón in a statement.

“We continue to ensure that our response to the COVID-19 pandemic is driven by the best science and data available.”

Currently, Newsom’s mandate is limited to grades seven through 12 and does allow for parents to opt out for personal reasons. The state is required to offer broader personal belief exemptions for any newly required jab unless it is added legislatively to the list of shots officially required in order to attend California schools.

Are These Chemicals Part of a Depopulation Agenda?

From Dr. Mercola:

Story at-a-glance

  • In 1992, researchers published data showing the quality of sperm counts in men had been cut nearly in half over the previous 50 years. A 2017 systematic review confirmed this trend, showing a 50% to 60% drop in total sperm count among men in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand between 1973 and 2011
  • Testosterone has also declined in tandem with lower sperm counts, while miscarriage rates among women and erectile dysfunction among men have been steadily rising
  • We can rule out genetics as the cause, because the decline in sperm count is simply too rapid. That leaves us with environmental causes. Environmental causes can be broadly divided into two broad categories: Lifestyle and chemicals
  • Lifestyle factors that negatively impact fertility include obesity, smoking, binge drinking and stress
  • A great number of chemicals can impact fertility either directly or indirectly, but the most concerning class are endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) such as phthalates. EDCs disrupt hormones, including sex hormones necessary for reproductive function, such as testosterone

In the After Skool video above, Shanna H. Swan, Ph.D., a leading environmental and reproductive epidemiologist and professor of environmental medicine and public health at the Icahn school of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, examines the role of environmental toxins in reproductive health.

In 1992, researchers published data showing the quality of sperm counts in men had been cut nearly in half over the previous 50 years. According to this study:1

“Linear regression of data weighted by number of men in each study showed a significant decrease in mean sperm count from 113 x 10(6)/ml in 1940 to 66 x 10(6)/ml in 1990 and in seminal volume from 3.40 ml to 2.75 ml, indicating an even more pronounced decrease in sperm production than expressed by the decline in sperm density …

As male fertility is to some extent correlated with sperm count the results may reflect an overall reduction in male fertility. The biological significance of these changes is emphasized by a concomitant increase in the incidence of genitourinary abnormalities such as testicular cancer and possibly also cryptorchidism and hypospadias, suggesting a growing impact of factors with serious effects on male gonadal function.”

Are Humans Going Extinct?

Swan was initially skeptical, but she decided to look into it some more. To her amazement, after reviewing each of the 60 studies included in that 1992 analysis, she could find nothing to indicate that the finding was a fluke. It was the most stable trend she’d ever come across, and she spent the next 20 years investigating why human reproduction is plummeting.

In 2017, she published a systematic review and meta-regression analysis2 showing a 50% to 60% drop in total sperm count among men in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand between 1973 and 2011. Overall, men in these countries had a 52.4% decline in sperm concentration and a 59.3% decline in total sperm count (sperm concentration multiplied by the total volume of an ejaculate).

Swan refers to this shocking 39-year decline as “the 1% effect,” meaning the cumulative effect that an annual change of just 1% has over time. Testosterone has also declined in tandem with lower sperm counts, while miscarriage rates among women and erectile dysfunction among men have been steadily rising.

If these trends continue, and there’s no indication that they won’t, in the not-so-distant future, we’ll be looking at a male population that is completely infertile. At that point, the human population will become extinct. Along the way, however, we’ll be facing a number of other pressing problems.

How Will We Care for Aging Baby Boomers?

Historically, the age distribution of the population has looked like a pyramid. The bottom largest section was children, the middle, slightly smaller section was working adults, and the top of the pyramid was seniors. This worked out well, because the younger population was able to financially support and care for the much smaller older segment.

We no longer have that pyramid. In most countries, the population distribution now looks like a light bulb, with a narrow base of children, a bulbous segment of adults, and a narrowing but still very large segment of older adults.

Part of the equation is the fact that life spans have gotten longer, which is wonderful. But the funds to support this aging population — through social security and Medicare in the U.S., for example — are dwindling, as the payer base is shrinking so dramatically.

Another problem is the fact that we won’t have the labor force required to keep the economy afloat. There aren’t enough children to fill all the jobs after the adult population retires.

What’s the Cause?

According to Swan, there are likely a whole host of factors contributing to this reproductive calamity. We can, however, rule out genetics, because the decline in sperm count is simply too rapid. A 50% decline in just two generations cannot be explained by genetics.

That leaves us with environmental causes. Environmental causes can be broadly divided into two broad categories: Lifestyle and chemicals. Lifestyle factors that negatively impact fertility include:

  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Binge drinking
  • Stress

On the chemical side, we know that a great number of chemicals can impact fertility either directly or indirectly, but the most concerning class are endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).3 EDCs disrupt hormones, including sex hormones necessary for reproductive function.

Many EDCs will mimic hormones, effectively taking their place. But, of course, the chemical doesn’t function the way the natural hormone does, so whatever that hormone controls won’t function well either. As explained in the 2019 report, “Male Infertility and Environmental Factors”:4

“Classically the EDCs bind to the androgen or estrogen receptor triggering an agonist or antagonist action. These in turn lead to increased or decreased gene expression of sex-specific genes.

In addition, EDCs act on steroidogenic enzymes and the metabolism of hormones, for example, inhibit the activity of 5-? reductase, which is the most important enzyme in the production of dihydrotestosterone and hence the regulation of the masculinization of the external genitalia and the prostate.

Furthermore, P450 enzymes in the liver that metabolize steroid hormones may be affected. In animal models EDCs affect hormone receptor levels. In addition to the effect on hormone action, animal experiments suggest that EDCs may also result in epigenetic changes and miRNA levels.”

Swan suspects EDCs are a primary culprit in infertility, in part because we’re surrounded by them every day of our lives. We’re exposed to them through our food, water, personal care products, furniture, building materials, plastics and much more.

In Utero Exposure to EDCs Can Drive Down Fertility

The most vulnerable time of a person’s life is in utero. This is when the building blocks for your reproductive system are laid down, and exposure to EDCs at this time can wreak havoc with a child’s adult reproductive capacity. Since the fetus shares the mother’s body, everything the mother is exposed to, the fetus is exposed to.

As explained in the video, a boy’s reproductive system is dependent on a certain level of testosterone for proper development. If the testosterone level is too low, his reproductive system will be impaired to some degree. In short, without sufficient testosterone, the boy’s reproductive system will “default” to female. He will be feminized, or as Swan describes it, “incompletely masculinized.”

Phthalates Are in Everybody

Swan was tipped off to investigate phthalates by a chemist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who noted that these EDCs have been found in everybody, including pregnant women.

Specifically, phthalates have been shown to disrupt the reproductive development of males, because they lower testosterone levels and incomplete male development in animals has now become so prevalent, there’s even a name for it: phthalate syndrome.

Animal studies have shown that when a pregnant mother is fed phthalates in early pregnancy, her male offspring will have smaller and less developed reproductive organs. His testicles may not be descended, his penis may be smaller, and his anogenital distance (the distance between the anus and the genitals) tends to be shorter.

Swan was the first to study the anogenital distance in human male infants, and was able to confirm phthalate syndrome is occurring in humans as well. Boys born of women with high levels of phthalic metabolites in their urine — specifically those that lower testosterone — had phthalate syndrome, and the severity was dose-dependent.

Swan then replicated the study with another set of mothers and their babies, and found the same result. The next question then is, does a shorter anogenital distance result in lower sperm count? According to Swan, boys with a short anogenital distance are more likely to have reproductive defects such as undescended testicles and defects of the penis. He’s also more likely to develop testicular cancer at an earlier age than normal, and he’s more likely to be sub-fertile.

So, it is her professional conclusion that phthalate exposure in utero is “undoubtedly part of the explanation of the decrease in sperm count and fertility.” Phthalates and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have also been linked to reduced bone mineral density in male teens,5 which could have significant implications later in life.

Common Sources of Phthalate Exposure

Phthalates are found in plastics. They’re what make the plastic soft and flexible, so wherever you find soft and pliable plastic, you find phthalates. Examples include:

  • Vinyl clothing, such as raincoats and rubber boots
  • Plastic shower curtains
  • Plastic tubing of all kinds
  • Foods that have been processed through plastic tubing, such as dairy products (the milking machines have plastic tubing)

Phthalates also increase absorption and help retain scent and color, so you’ll find them in:

  • Cosmetics, perfumes and personal care products
  • Scented household products such as laundry soap and air fresheners
  • Pesticides

As noted by Swan, phthalates are only one class of EDCs. There are several others, including phytoestrogens, dioxins, flame retardants, phenols, PCBs and polyaromatic hydrocarbons. Phthalates, however, are among the most hazardous for male reproductive health due to their ability to block testosterone.

Joe Rogan also recently interviewed Shaw about this. An excerpt is included below. The full interview is available on Spotify.

Phenols Increase Female Sex Hormones

The phenols, such as bisphenol-A (BPA), have the opposite effect in that they make plastic more rigid and hard. In the human body, they increase the female hormone estrogen, resulting in breast development and a flabby midsection. BPA also damages the DNA in sperm.6 Like phthalates, BPA and other bisphenols are extremely pervasive. They’re found in:

The lining of tin cans Dental sealants
Nonstick food wrappers (food wrappers also contain PFAS) Hard plastic sippy cups and bottles
Carpeting Personal care products such as shampoos and lotions

The Good News

The good news here is that many of the chemicals that are most harmful to reproduction are not persistent, and your body can eliminate them in four to six hours.

Sperm production take about 70 days from start to finish, so over time, a man may be able to reverse some of the damage, provided it’s not congenital. The problem, of course, is that most people are exposed to multiple sources 24/7, so successful detox means you have to stop taking them in.

Another piece of good news is that researchers have shown that if you clean up the environment of the offspring from a toxic, unhealthy rat, normal reproductive capacity is restored after three generations of clean living.

While this is a relatively quick fix for rats, the life span of which is only two years, it’s not quite as simple for humans. Three generations in human terms is about 75 years, “but we can start in that direction,” Swan says, by making sure we a) don’t expose children to EDCs in utero, and b) eliminate further exposure during childhood if the child was exposed in utero.

Forever Chemicals in Our Food and Water

While phthalates and bisphenols are nonpersistent, PFAS — a class of chemicals that are pervasive in soil, water, and human bodies — are so persistent they’re known as “forever chemicals.” In Maine, farmers are now blowing the whistle, warning that PFAS on farmland are a “slow-motion disaster.”7

How do the chemicals get there? While spills and seepage from industrial sites are part of the problem in some areas, the most prevalent source of the contamination is biosolids — toxic human waste sludge — which is being marketed as an affordable fertilizer.

In 2019, I wrote about how the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has failed to adequately regulate the biosolids industry, thereby allowing massive quantities of toxic materials to be introduced into our food supply.

You can learn more about this in the Natural News documentary “Biosludged,” above. PFAS accumulate in the soil and is transferred into your food. Proof of this can be seen in food testing, which in 2017 found PFAS chemicals in 10 of the 91 foods tested.

Chocolate cake had the highest amount — 250 times above the advisory limit for drinking water. (There’s currently no limit for food.) Nearly half of the meat and fish tested also contained double the advisory limit for water. Leafy greens grown within 10 miles of a PFAS plant also contained very high amounts. As you might expect, PFAS also accumulate in your body.

Maine Takes Action

In Maine, PFAS contaminated water wells have sparked both outrage and action. A March 2022 article in The Maine Monitor spells out the game plan:8

“Maine is the first state to comprehensively test for the impacts of forever chemicals from sludge spreading on farmland, a practice occurring nationwide where fully half of wastewater sludge is land-applied. Consequently, Maine has had to pioneer policy actions, moving to implement recommendations of a year-long PFAS task force.

The next policy step must be passage of LD 1911, which would ban land application of sludge and the land application or sale of compost derived from sludge. Two dozen companies and municipalities are licensed to convert sludge into compost, despite the state’s own finding that 89% of finished compost samples exceeded the screening level for PFOA, a common PFAS compound.

Adam Nordell, co-owner of Songbird Farm in Unity — another site of high PFAS contamination — summarized the importance of LD 1911 this way: ‘No one can undo the historic contamination of our land. But we know enough now to turn off the tap.’

A second bill before the Legislature, LD 1639, would prevent the state-owned Juniper Ridge landfill, managed by Casella Waste Systems, from accepting construction and demolition debris that originated out of state and is laden with PFAS and other toxics, increasing the contaminated leachate entering the Penobscot River.”

Toxic Pesticides

Communities in Maryland and Massachusetts have also confirmed that pesticides used against mosquitoes were contaminated with PFAS, even though they’re not supposed to contain such chemicals. In April 2022, the Pesticide Action Network (PAN) reported:9

“EPA claimed that there were no PFAS chemicals used in this way, but independent testing10 revealed that there was PFAS contamination in pesticides being used by mosquito control districts — of 14 mosquito control products tested, half were found to contain PFAS. These products are heavily applied across communities, often weekly, from Spring through Fall.

In response to these concerns, EPA claimed that the PFAS contamination was due to leaching from fluorinated plastic HDPE storage containers. While this explanation has been touted by many as proof that PFAS contamination of pesticides is not a serious concern, the testing in Maryland and Massachusetts revealed that three products were contaminated from another source than the containers.

Beyond this kind of contamination, PFAS are active ingredients in at least 40 pesticide products used worldwide. And this only accounts for pesticides that include PFAS as an active ingredient.

PFAS products are a popular surfactant (helps spray more easily) so PFAS may also be used as inert ingredients in pesticides, which unfortunately don’t have to be reported since chemical composition falls under ‘trade secret’ jurisdiction.

It is clear that PFAS are present in a variety of commonly-used pesticide products, regardless of storage conditions. No research has been done on the synergistic effects of PFAS and pesticides — which we know pose their own set of human and environmental health risks.”

Again and again, the EPA has failed in its duty to protect public health from chemicals that wreak havoc on human health, fetal development and fertility. As noted by PAN, “EPA has engaged in a regulatory stalling tactic — changing the definition of what is considered to be a PFAS to shirk responsibility.”

The new “working definition” of PFAS has been considerably narrowed from what it was, thereby excluding many chemicals used in drugs and pesticides. To counter the EPA’s deliberate shortcomings, the U.S. Congress has also introduced a bill (HR.5987 — the PFAS Definition Improvement Act11) that would require the EPA to use the widest and most comprehensive definition of PFAS.

I join PAN in urging you to call on your representatives to co-sponsor this bill. Maine and Maryland have also proposed bills to prevent PFAS contamination in pesticides specifically.

It’s hard to be optimistic when faced with such dire statistics as a 1% reduction in male fertility per year. But if we care about life, we must at least try to turn things around. One step in the right direction would be to eliminate EDCs from common use. In the meantime, men and women of childbearing age would be wise to take precautions and clear out anything that might expose them to these chemicals in their day-to-day lives, before they try to conceive.
