This deeply personal post by David at Daily Green, about his and his wife’s difficulties conceiving a child, only reaffirms my belief that corporations are fronts for aliens who are systematically wiping out the human race by steadily curtailing our fertility.
One 1992 study cited in the report showed that sperm count fell 50 percent between 1940 and 1990, while the incidence of testicular cancer progressively rose. Infertility today affects 15-20 percent of couples, compared with 7-8 percent in the early 1960s, the report said.
“On average, a typical Western man produces half the sperm his father or grandfather did,” it said.
Whether this was precipitated by extraterrestrial intervention or not, you can pin lagging fertility on our flagrant and indiscriminate use of synthetic chemicals, the production of which took off like venturesome baby bald eagles during World War II. Patriotic chemists churned out pesticides, solvents, degreasers, and other materials to bolster weapons arsenals and increase crop production to feed hungry soldiers. And because this was WAR, forsooth, safety was dismissed in favor of efficacy.
In peacetime, these same labs helped fuel the economic boom of the second half of the twentieth century, formulating new chemicals manufacturers needed to create cheaper, smarter products.
Federal regulation was fragmentary at best, and manufacturers were allowed to provide their own proofs of safety, a situation that remains true today. There are now more than 100,000 synthetic chemicals on the market, and these chemicals are everywhere. They enter our bodies and those of other animals through every possible route of transmission. They are in our food supply, so we eat them. They drift in the air, so we breathe them. (Carried on thermal currents, they have long since reached the Arctic, so polar bears breathe them too.) Present in landfills, they leach into the water supply, so we drink them. Released as effluent into lakes and rivers by factories, they affect the habitat of fish, frogs, and all aquatic life, right down to plankton. Ubiquitous in cosmetics, they are absorbed through our skin. Pregnant women pass them to their fetuses; mothers feed them to their newborns when they breastfeed.
In 1991, a team of world-class scientists from the fields of endocrinology, biology, immunology, toxicology, psychiatry, ecology, anthropology met and concluded that man-made chemicals, which had not evolved with living organisms over millennia, had the potential to wreck havoc with hormone activity in humans and animals “by mimicking the activity of a hormone, by blocking it, or through other mechanisms.” Comparing notes, the scientists realized that many wildlife populations had already been affected.
Even more disturbing, they emphasized that the fetus and newborn are at greatest risk, and that the effects might not be manifested until the animal was mature. Perhaps the greatest bombshell was the statement that “the concentrations of a number of synthetic sex hormone [disruptors] measured in the U.S. human population today are well within the range and dosages at which effects are seen in wildlife populations.” Suddenly, this was not about cleaning up a few lakes; the health of all the creatures in our care was at stake—including the health of our unborn children.
Fifteen years later, researchers are discovering an average of 200 industrial compounds, pollutants and other chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborns, including seven dangerous pesticides, some of which were banned in the U.S. over 30 years ago.

With such odds stacked against us, what recourse do we have? Here are just some things you can do to undermine the efforts of nefarious little green men:
1. Eat organically grown or raised foods. Researchers have found that children who switched to organic diets for only a few days “dramatically and substantially lowered the amount of toxic pesticides in their bodies.”
3. Phase out your use of household chemicals, antibacterial disinfectants, and synthetic pesticides. According to various studies, exposure to household pesticides is associated with an elevated risk of childhood leukemia and childhood brain cancer.
4. Avoid PVC/vinyl like the plague.
5. Avoid pressed wood products, such as particleboard, hardwood plywood, and medium density fiberboard (MDF), because the glues and adhesives used offgas formaldehyde even at room temperatures.
6. Don’t drink bottled water. A 2005 study found that the level of toxic plastic molecules leaching into food and beverage containers—and accumulating in our bodies—was higher than previously thought. Fetuses can be exposed while still in the womb, and babies during breast-feeding.
7. Don’t smoke! Also, try to keep your children away from second-hand smoke because endocrine-disrupting pesticides lurk within those poisonous plumes. (If paying companies to kill yourself isn’t evidence of alien mind-control, I don’t know what is.)
And, as always, vote with your dollars to keep polluters in your community, their toxic emissions, and their DASTARDLY galactic genocidal agenda at bay.
