Genetically Modified Diet: Direct Link to a Decrease in Fertility

A long-term feeding study commissioned by the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety confirms genetically modified (GM) corn seriously affects reproductive health in mice.  Non-GMO advocates, who have warned about this infertility link along with other health risks, now seek an immediate ban of all GM foods and GM crops to protect the health of humankind and the fertility of women around the world.

Natural Approaches to Bedroom Health

by Jonathan V. Wright, MD

Bring the Fire Back to the Bedroom…without even touching one of those little blue pills

Many Nutrition & Healing readers likely remember a time when erectile dysfunction (ED) may have been the subject of the occasional joke, but-at least in these United States-it definitely wasn’t a subject for general discussion. But in 1998, the patent medicine Viagra® was introduced with a nationwide advertising campaign, followed closely by Cialis® and Levitra®, and more open discussion of erectile dysfunction rapidly became “respectable.” Continue reading

If Ultrasound Destroys Sperm, Why Is It Safe For a Fetus?

May 23, 2010       by Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) Ultrasound is extremely damaging to the health of any unborn child (fetus). The natural health community has been warning about ultrasound for years, but mainstream medicine, which consistently fails to recognize the harm it causes, insists ultrasound is perfectly safe and can’t possibly harm the health of a fetus.

Now, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is funding a project that aims to temporarily sterilize men by blasting their scrotums with ultrasound. The burst of ultrasound energy, it turns out, disrupts the normal biological function of the testes, making the man infertile for six months.  Ultrasound, in other words, contains enough energy to temporarily deaden the testes and basically destroy sperm function for half a year. So why is it considered “safe” to blast an unborn baby with the same frequencies? Continue reading

10 Reasons to Avoid Genetically Modified Foods

by Dr. Mercola | February 27 2010

GM foods won’t solve the food crisis

A 2008 World Bank report concluded that increased biofuel production (crops grown for fuel rather than food) is the major cause of the increase in food prices.  GM giant Monsanto has been at the heart of the lobbying for biofuels — while profiting enormously from the resulting food crisis and using it as a PR opportunity to promote GM foods!

GM crops do not increase yield potential

Despite the promises, GM has not increased the yield potential of any commercialized crops. In fact, studies show that the most widely grown GM crop, GM soy, has suffered reduced yields. Continue reading

Secret Health Risks They Aren’t Telling You About: Antibiotics and Vaccines

by www.SixWise.com

Two of the top man-made medical breakthroughs in the past 100 years may also be two of the deadliest and most harmful to you and your loved ones. Further, odds are nearly 100% that you and your loved ones have already been treated with these two “breakthroughs” — and may be at risk of the effects now or in the years to come.

Antibiotics

Antibiotics can work wonders when they’re prescribed for bacterial infections like pneumonia, tuberculosis and meningitis. In this way they truly have been a breakthrough that has saved countless numbers of lives. The problem with antibiotics is that they are often prescribed to treat viruses — against which they are useless. Viruses like upper respiratory infections, measles, mumps, chickenpox, flu, and gastroenteritis are all viral infections, which antibiotics do nothing for. Continue reading

Fluoride Causes Premature Births, Brain Degradation, Bone Loss, Cancer and Hormone Disruption

December 09, 2009 by: Ethan Huff

(NaturalNews) A recent study conducted by researchers from the State University of New York (SUNY) found that fluoride ingestion may be responsible for causing premature births. Presented to the American Public Health Association at its annual meeting, these findings ratchet up yet another detrimental consequence of ingesting this toxic poison that is added to most American municipal water supplies.

Sodium fluoride, a waste byproduct of the aluminum industry, is touted by most mainstream health bureaucracies as one of the greatest public health achievements ever discovered. The American Dental Association praises the medication of the public through fluoridated municipal water supplies, claiming that it has done wonders to prevent tooth decay. A simple investigation beyond the glaringly false rhetoric, however, reveals the dirty reality behind fluoride and the incredible harm it inflicts upon those who ingest it. Continue reading

HEALTH CARE HYPOCRISY — WITHOUT SELENIUM THERE IS NO HEALTH CARE REFORM!

 

Crusador Interviews Christopher Barr, Health/Nutrition Historian
http://www.healthtruthrevealed.com
October 9, 2009

1 Bottle Of “Whole Food Grown” Selenium Per Month For Every Man, Woman And Child Alive Would Be A Better Insurance Policy Than Anything The Government Could Ever Come Up With.

“There are some antioxidant nutrients as potent as selenium, but none of them function in as many areas as selenium, nor are they as easily available in the food supply or as inexpensive to obtain as a supplement. That is why I say that hands down selenium is unequivocally the most protective of all nutrients.”   — Christopher Barr

 This issue of Crusador is one of the most crucially important we’ve ever published because there are so many critical health issues all converging simultaneously. With the battle for health care reform raging throughout the country it is imperative that people learn more about selenium and whole food nutrients that offer our country the greatest hope for a better health care system instead of a Soviet style drug, cut, burn and poison system that the Democrats are trying to impose upon us that over 85% of the country doesn’t want.

 The truth is the health care reform they are working on is really just sick care reform and end of life reform (as in how to get people to die younger and quicker). There is absolutely nothing in either the House or Senate Bills about how to prevent or treat disease naturally using whole food nutrition, naturopathy, homeopathy or all of the other natural healing modalities readily available.  Instead of trying to run a broken trillion dollar a year sick care system, the real answer should be to put serious emphasis on disease prevention. Just think of the cost savings alone, not to mention the better quality of life so many would experience. Wouldn’t it make a whole lot more sense to have a healthy nation where diseases are prevented?

 When it comes to disease prevention there is no single nutrient as important as selenium.  Continue reading

CoQ10 and Male Virility

Al Sears, MDJuly 28, 2009

I’ve just seen the research on one more thing you should know. Now, research shows that CoQ10 can improve a man’s sperm quality and sex drive.  Researchers in Italy divided infertile men into two groups. The ones who took just 200 mg a day of CoQ10 experienced significant improvement in sperm cell motility, the quality of the sperm cell.1  And it doubled the pregnancy rate over the men not taking CoQ10.

A number of studies have shown that, for the past 40 years, the quality and quantity of men’s sperm has decreased significantly.2 As your sperm count drops, so does your potency.

A major cause is the environment we live in. Chemicals in everything from the pesticides used in your food to the plastic in your water bottles and food containers find their way into your bloodstream. These chemicals, known as xeno-estrogens, act like estrogen in your body.  The result is a hormonal imbalance that leaves your body with less testosterone and more estrogen.  Bottom line: You may not be as potent as you should be.

What should you do?

So far, we’ve seen the amazing things CoQ10 can do for certain types of cancer and congestive heart failure. I recommend you take 50 mg daily of CoQ10 of the ubiquinol form. It’s 8 times stronger than regular CoQ10, which means that 50 mg of ubiquinol CoQ10 is equal to 400 mg of regular CoQ10. Plus, it stays in the bloodstream longer than regular CoQ10.

Once you’ve got that down, try these other potency boosters: Continue reading

Common Chemicals Threaten Male Fertility

A leading scientist has warned that chemicals found in many food, cosmetic and cleaning products pose a real threat to male fertility. Professor Richard Sharpe, of the Medical Research Council, says that these hormone-disrupting chemicals are “feminizing” boys in the womb, leading to rising rates of birth defects, testicular cancer, and low sperm counts.
