US Birthrates Plummet by 310,000 Babies: Responsible Economic Planning or Shadow Depopulation?
By Daisy Luther
An article in the UK Daily Mail yesterday pointed out that American birthrates are at the lowest point since 2007. Birth rates have been steadily declining and many analysts are blaming this on the economy.
‘When times are up, births go up,’ D’Vora Cohn, a senior writer at Pew Research Center, told Today. ‘When times are bad, births go down.’
Despite the recession being officially over for four years, the weak recovery and economic uncertainty has resulted in the national birthrate hitting an all-time low in 2011, and staying there in 2012.
(Author’s note: I’d like to point out that we all know that the “recession” isn’t actually over, but that’s a different article.)
However, the declining birth rates may have nothing to do with the economy and everything to do with our genetically modified food supply, our culture, and our environment. Our food and water is poisoned, the air we breathe is toxic, and we are urged by the media to remove healthy body parts to prevent the possibility of cancer in the future. Whether or not this is a deliberate attempt to depopulate or a series of horrible side effects is open to debate, but the one conclusion we can all agree on is that human fertility is dropping dramatically.
In days gone by the food that we eat has been alive – if we save the seeds from a plant we can rejuvenate them the following spring and life will come forth from that. Now, the North American diet is filled with dead, sterile food-like substances. Take GMOs, for example. These plants are designed with “terminator technology” to be sterile, so that farmer’s are forced to purchase new seeds every year instead of saving seeds from one year to the next. But when we consume these dead products, what does it do to our own fertility?
We are consuming genetically modified food and it is genetically modifying us.
The biotech industry knows full well that their seeds are causing this issue. Last fall, Anthony Guiccardi of the website Natural Society published an email from a biotech scientist who boasted of this side effect:
I am no traitor against humanity. If this **** causes infertility… Awesome!!
The world is over-populated, and people need to stop having children. This is one of earth’s largest problems.
If the earth wasn’t overpopulated, things like growth hormones wouldn’t EXIST.
The reason they do, is that the earth cannot produce enough food on its own to feed us all.
This is why GMO is actually saving the planet.
So **** you and your ********. I am doing humanity a ******* FAVOR!!!Sincerely,
A REAL ‘traitor to humanity’
And the infertility problem is only going to get worked, as the new generation is being fed nothing BUT genetically modified foods. A Russian study proved that after only 3 generations of such a diet, complete infertility was the result. The statistics are beginning to tell the story as we watch birth rates decline. We (and our children) are the laboratory animals. Our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be the ones who bear the brunt of it.
Not only are we consuming the dead and lifeless food. We are consuming the herbicide glyphosate, which has endocrine-disrupting properties that result in reproductive problems such as infertility, miscarriage, birth defects, and sexual development issues.
Nancy Swanson of The Examiner collected the following peer-reviewed studies, which confirm the fertility-related concerns with glyphosate.
In 1995 Yousef et al. reported on toxic effects of glyphosate on semen characteristics in rabbits, “Pesticide treatment resulted in a decline in body weight, libido, ejaculate volume, sperm concentration, semen initial fructose and semen osmolality. This was accompanied with increases in the abnormal and dead sperm.”
In 2002 Markaverich et al. found that, “Housing adult rats on ground corncob bedding impedes male and female mating behavior and causes acyclicity in females.”
In 2008, Austrian researchers found that mice fed GM corn produced fewer and smaller babies than those fed a non-GM diet.
In April 2010, a Russian study found that after feeding hamsters GM soy for two years over three generations, most were sterile by the third generation.
2011 Siepmann et al. reported, “Hypogonadism and erectile dysfunction associated with soy product consumption,” in a 19-year old male (who was also diabetic). Unfortunately, they didn’t make the connection that the soy was almost certainly GE.
In 2012 Antoniou et al. published a review of the evidence of the reproductive toxicity of glyphosate herbicides and concluded that a new and transparent risk assessment needs to be conducted.
In 2012 Irina Ermakova reported low birth weight and a 55.6% mortality rate in the babies of rats fed GMO soy compared to 6.8% in the control group.
Keep in mind that despite all of this evidence, despite warnings on their own website about the negative effects of pesticides, despite their knowledge that it causes these problems, the Environmental
Deception Protection Agency has just dramatically raised the allowable limit of glyphosate. Furthermore, Monsanto, the largest biotech company in the world, has been given a free ride by Congress, the White House, and the Supreme Court time and again. They even get to write their own laws which get slipped into bills at the last minute. Furthermore, with the introduction of the UN’s Codex Alimentarius, it’s soon going to be even more difficult to avoid toxins and find untainted sources of nutrition.
This blatant governmental favoritism leads to the inevitable question that you need to be asking yourself: is it just about money or is this destruction of human reproductive health deliberate?
When we turn on the taps and fill a glass with water, are we unwittingly aiding in our own demise?
According to a study undertaken by the National Center for Toxicological Research, if that water contains fluoride, we are at risk for decreasing our fertility.
A review of fluoride toxicity showed decreased fertility in most animal species studied. The current study was to see whether fluoride would also affect human birth rates. A U.S. database of drinking water systems was used to identify index counties with water systems reporting fluoride levels of at least 3 ppm. These and adjacent counties were grouped in 30 regions spread over 9 states. For each county, two conceptionally different exposure measures were defined, and the annual total fertility rate (TFR) for women in the age range 10-49 yr was calculated for the period 1970-1988. For each region separately, the annual TFR was regressed on the fluoride measure and sociodemographic covariables. Most regions showed an association of decreasing TFR with increasing fluoride levels.
And this is just one of the chemicals deliberately added to tap water. Those who live in farming communities are ingesting pesticides and herbicides as chemical farming methods cause the groundwater to be contaminated with substances that cannot be effectively filtered out.
We are constantly exposed environmentally to substances that affect fertility by synthetically affecting our hormones with Xenoestrogens: pesticides, plastics, petrochemical byproducts, and petrochemical fumes, to name a few. This affects men and women both dramatically increasing estrogen levels. High estrogen causes infertility, which is why birth control pills contain estrogen. The effects of too much estrogen in women include ovulation disorders, ovarian cysts, breast cancer, polycystic ovary syndrome and endometriosis. High estrogen levels in men decrease testosterone levels and sperm counts, and can also result in impotency, prostate enlargement/cancer as well as breast cell growth.
Xenoestrogens can be found in:
- Plastics (they often contain pthalates and bisphenol A, which can leach out of the plastic item into your food, especially when heated)
- Growth hormones (these are found in conventional meat and dairy products because they are fed to livestock )
- Household cleaners, laundry detergents, and bleach
- Personal care products (lotions, shower gels, soaps, shampoos, cosmetics)
The radiation for the omnipresent cellphones is also bad news for human fertility. According to a report on Fox News, cellphones can negatively affect both male and female reproductive capabilities.
Researchers in Austria compared cell phone users to non-users and have found cell phone use capable of damaging sperm production and may be a contributing factor in male infertility.
This is not the first study that linked cell phones and male sterility. A number of earlier studies have come to similar conclusions. In 2005 researchers found the radio-frequency radiation produced by mobile phones had “a significant genotoxic [DNA-damaging] effect on …spermatozoa” in mice. A subsequent mouse study in 2007 found “significantly higher incidence of sperm cell death” and suggested “carrying cell phones near reproductive organs could negatively affect sperm quality” in men and may “impair male fertility.”
What is less clear is the impact cell phone radiation may have on disrupting embryonic development and whether the damaged sperm DNA may affect the development of a conceived fetus and possibly result in a newborn being more vulnerable to disease—such as childhood cancer—or other birth defects.

We are encouraged by popular culture to offer up our fertility on a silver platter. Who can forget Bill Gate’s statement about vaccines helping to reduce the world’s population?
Mike Adams of Natural News Network wrote an article discussing three ways that vaccines might be used to aid in depopulation measures.
#1) They might kill people slowly in a way that’s unnoticeable, taking effect over perhaps 10 – 30 years by accelerating degenerative diseases.
#2) They might reduce fertility and therefore dramatically lower birth rates around the world, thereby reducing the world population over successive generations. This “soft kill” method might seem more acceptable to scientists who want to see the world population fall but don’t quite have the stomach to outright kill people with conventional medicine. There is already evidence that vaccines may promote miscarriages (http://www.naturalnews.com/027512_vaccines_miscarriage.html).
#3) They might increase the death rate from a future pandemic. Theoretically, widespread vaccination efforts could be followed by a deliberate release of a highly virulent flu strain with a high fatality rate. This “bioweapon” approach could kill millions of people whose immune systems have been weakened by previous vaccine injections. Thiis is a known side effect of some vaccines, by the way. A study documenting this was published in PLoS. Read the story here: http://www.naturalnews.com/028538_seasonal_flu_shot_vaccines.html
Recently, superstar Angelina Jolie came forward discussing her decision to remove her healthy breasts because of a test that showed that she had the genetic markers for potentially developing breast cancer. She said in her statement that she also planned to have her reproductive organs removed. (Jolie’s mother died at a tragically young age from ovarian cancer). She is just one in a growing number of women who are being scared into having healthy body parts removed because of a fear that they might develop cancer in the future. This is another cultural trend that may affect fertility rates in otherwise healthy young women.
Preserving reproductive rights
The United Nations has a published plan to “control” the world’s population. Don’t take my word for it – they have published their plan online, polishing it to a glossy, politically correct shine. Read the World Population Plan of Action HERE – it is a truly terrifying document that makes the plan of depopulation abundantly clear. According to the plan, “Individual reproductive behavior and the needs and aspirations of society should be reconciled.”
While anyone can agree the population has grown dramatically and many believe that the capacity of the earth to sustain a burgeoning population may be strained, the question is this:
Should a global governing body be able to decide whether or not
you have children and grandchildren?
Whether they should or not, it seems that the decision is being taken out of our hands.
We can preserve our reproductive health by avoiding the toxins mentioned above. It is particularly dire that we take extra steps to protect our children from these hazards too. Their growing bodies could potentially be permanently impaired by what they ingest while they are developing.
The mainstream media propaganda machine clearly wants us to believe that lower birthrates are a sensible choice related to the declining economy but there are clear links to the toxins and hazards that we are exposed to every single day. This is information that needs to be shared with the public, but it is constantly covered up by the media, by biotech companies like Monsanto, by government agencies, and by Big Pharma.
Do you believe that this is depopulation by design or just a result of careless technology gone awry?
