BPA-Free Plastics Disrupt Fertility "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Andy Coghlan

Many plastic bottles are sold as BPA-free meaning they dont contain bisphenol A, an ingredient known to disrupt reproduction in mice. But now it seems that the additives used in place of BPA are potentially just as harmful.

The discovery could mean that the replacements, such as bisphenol S (BPS), might potentially affect people if they leach out into food or drink.

Theres no evidence yet that this happens. But the new results from mice suggest that if there is a risk, it may match that posed by BPA itself. Several of these bisphenols induce changes in the germline similar to those we reported previously for BPA, says Patricia Hunt of Washington State University in Pullman, who helped draw attention to the BPA problem 20 years ago.

Hunts latest discovery emerged in the same way as her BPA findings. As before, she noticed that mice kept in certain plastic cages began to show reproductive problems, such as abnormal eggs and low sperm counts. As with BPA, she found the inner surfaces to which mice were exposed were contaminated, this time with BPS that had leached out from the plastic.

What We Know and Dont Know about Tongue-tie "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

About 5 to 10% of newborns are born with tongue-tie. The majority of newborns with tongue-tie have no problem breastfeeding or bottle-feeding and their mothers do not suffer nipple pain. Among women with unresolved nipple pain from breastfeeding, nipple pain was decreased significantly if the baby either had a frenotomy or a sham procedure. Frenotomy should be painless for the baby, cause at most two drops of blood loss, and the baby should not cry more than 10 seconds.

In Memory of Ann Eliot, Colonial American Midwife "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Ann Eliot (born Hannah Mumford or Mountford) was a midwife in Roxbury, Massachusetts, just outside Boston, during the Colonial era in America. After she died on March 22, 1687, her family, friends, and neighbors commemorated her life by erecting a special monument for her. In a unanimous resolution, they voted to do so: Mrs. Eliot, for the great service that she hath done this town, will be honored with a burial there. (qtd. in Gregory 1857, 27). At the time of her death, she had attended more than 3000 births.

Father Birthkeepers "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

When first I met Te Kaha, he arrived on a typically busy day at Bumi Sehat. Acupuncture clinicians, allopathic nurses, and doctors were working together to give optimal free care to many dozens of sick and injured people. Two pairs of mothers and fathers were laboring, and three newborn mothers/babies/families were resting in the postpartum rooms, breastfeeding and bonding. Midwife Ibu Dewa Rutini and I had just finished teaching a class of over 40 young midwives from Kalimantan about gentle birth. The entryway of Bumi Sehat was chock-a-block full of slippers and shoes when this complete stranger appeared, looking completely strange!

Generation Zapped "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Dr. Mercola

Mankind evolved on a planet where background microwave radiation was infinitesimal. Today, most live in a sea of microwave radiation and radiofrequencies (RF) emitted from wireless technologies routers, smartphones, tablets, baby monitors, smart TVs, appliances, smart meters and more.

Globally, there are now more than 6 billion cellphone subscriptions, which means were nearing the point where every single person on the planet has one of these devices, and most now get their first cellphone or tablet at a very early age.

According to the Pew Research Center, 90 percent of adults say their phone is frequently with them and rarely turned off.1 Americans are so attached to their smartphones and social networks that they check Facebook and Twitter an astounding 17 times each day on average, and many teens spend a mind-boggling nine hours a day on social media.2

Many experts now warn that chronic, heavy exposure to these electromagnetic fields (EMFs) could be having severe repercussions for our health, especially that of children, who are being exposed in utero.

Fetuses and young children have never before been exposed to this level of pulsed radiation, and its still too early to determine the exact extent of the harm, as it may take decades for effects to manifest.

In recent years, its become increasingly clear that mitochondrial dysfunction is at the root of most chronic disease, so in terms of public health, the effects of chronic EMF exposure may be far more profound than currently suspected.

We may not only face an avalanche of brain cancer in coming decades, but also heart disease, neurological disorders, infertility and newly identified disorders such as electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS).3,4

Light colour and intensity alters reproductive/seasonal responses in Japanese quail. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Physiol Behav. 2015 Aug 1 ;147:163-8. Epub 2015 Apr 23. PMID: 25912834 Abstract Title:  Light colour and intensity alters reproductive/seasonal responses in Japanese quail. Abstract:  An extensive literature is available on the photoperiodic responses of avian species but studies on light colour and wavelength from light emitting diode (LED) sources on reproduction are limited. Hence, an experiment was designed to study the effect of different colours and intensities of light on the reproductive responses of Japanese quail. Three-week old quail were exposed to five different light conditions with a long photoperiod (LD 16:8): WT (white fluorescent light 100 lux as control), W LED (white light emitting diode, 30 lux), B LED (blue LED, 30 lux), G LED (green LED, 30 lux) and R-LED (red LED, 30 lux). The cloacal gland size, an indicator of androgenic activity, was monitored weekly. The results indicated an early initiation of gonadal growth in WT quail which continued and maintained a plateau throughout the period of study. On the other hand, in general low intensity light, there was a decreased amplitude of the reproductive cycle and the quail exposed to different colour lights (green, red and blue lights) used different incubation times to initiate their gonadal growth and exhibited a gonadal cycle of a different duration up to 15.5 weeks. Thereafter, the gonad of quail of all the LED groups started developing again (including the blue LED exposed quail which remained undeveloped until this age) and attained the increased degree of growth until 26.5 weeks of age. During the second cycle, gonads of green and red light exposed quail continued to increase and maintained a plateau of development similar to WT exposed control while white and blue LED exposed quail exhibited spontaneous regression and attained complete sexual quiescence. Based on our study, it is suggested that long term exposure to blue LED light of low intensity may induce gonadal regression even under long-day conditions (LD 16:8), while exposure to green and red lights appears to maintain a constant photosensitivity after one complete gonadal cycle.

Ectogenesis: Artificial wombs could soon be a reality "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Technology is well on the way to realising ectogenesis, improving premature baby survival and increasing fertility options. But it also has other, more frightening, implications. We are approaching a biotechnological breakthrough. Ectogenesis, the invention of a complete external womb, could completely change the nature of human reproduction. In April this year, researchers at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia announced their development of an artificial womb. The "biobag" is intended to improve the survival rates of premature babies and is a significant step forward from conventional incubators. Their results show that lambs (at the equivalent of a premature human foetus of 22-24 weeks) are able to successfully grow in the biobag, with the oldest lamb now more than one year old.

L-carnitine combined with coenzyme Q10 was beneficial for idiopathic oligoasthenozoospermia. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Zhonghua Nan Ke Xue. 2018 Janurary;24(1):33-38. PMID: 30157357 Abstract Title:  [L-carnitine combined with coenzyme Q10 for idiopathic oligoasthenozoospermia: A double-blind randomized controlled trial]. Abstract:  Objective: To evaluate the clinical therapeutic effect of L-carnitine (LC) in combination with coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) on idiopathic oligoasthenozoospermia (iOAT).METHODS: Using the computer-generated random number sequence, we randomly assigned 262 infertile men with iOAT to four groups to receive oral administration of LC at 10 mL bid (n = 62), CoQ10 (n = 63) at 20 mg tid, LC combined with CoQ10 at the above dose (n = 63), and vitamin B1 as the placebo control (n = 74). After 3 months of treatment, we obtained sperm concentration, sperm motility, the percentage of progressively motile sperm, sperm DNA fragmentation index, the rate of sperm acrosome reaction, and the outcomes of clinical pregnancy and compared them among the four groups of patients.RESULTS: After treatment, the combination group, as compared with the LC, CoQ10 and control groups, showed significantly higher sperm motility and percentage of progressively motile sperm (P

Iowa Teen Dies Three Weeks After Being Injected with HPV Gardasil Vaccine "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Iowa Teen Dies of ADEM Three Weeks After HPV Vaccination

by The Vaccine Reaction

Christopher Bunch, 14 years old, died on Aug. 14, 2018 of complications from a rare neurological disease called Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM). The teenager began experiencing symptoms, including headaches, nausea and vomiting, on Aug. 6. He spent much of the next two days sleeping.1 2

On Aug. 8, Christophers parents became concerned that their sons health had seriously deteriorated. His progression went from zero to one hundred in a matter of four hours, said Elijah Mendoza Bunch, Christophers father.1 2

Christopher was taken to University of Iowa Stead Family Childrens Hospital in Iowa City for treatment. Soon after being admitted to the hospital, the boy began to lose the ability to breathe on his own and suffered complete paralysis on the left side of his body.

He was put on anti-seizure medication. On Aug. 11, Christopher underwent surgery to relieve swelling in his brain, but he remained in critical condition and was placed on life support until he passed away two days later.1 3

Physicians diagnosed Christopher with ADEMa disease that causes inflammation of the central nervous system.

ADEM typically affects children and may be preceded by a viral or bacterial infection.

It can also occur after a vaccination, with symptoms ranging from confusion, drowsiness or coma, unsteadiness, vision issues, trouble swallowing or weakness of the arms and legs.1 2 3

Christopher had apparently received the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine Gardasil three weeks prior to his death. ADEM is a reported side effect of Gardasil. It is listed in the Gardasil package insert.4 5 6 7

Haunting Video Of Baby Rhino Mourning His Mom Should Inspire You To Action "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Amanda Froelich

Rhinos and elephants alike are very empathetic creatures. Their very nature is to be strong yet supportive of their kin. So, when either is murdered by a poacher for their ivory parts, it can be considered nothing except a tragic loss. Unfortunately, poaching of both African rhinos and elephants is on the rise.

In 2012, 669 rhinos were killed each year by poachers in South Africa. Just one year later, that number increased to 946. Now, its estimated that two rhinos are killed each day. If we want the fierce creatures to be around for our children and their children, immediate action needs to be taken. Hopefully, the following video will propel more people to get started.

Recently, a baby rhino was found mourning the loss of his mother. Footage of the haunting scene was shared by the Petronel Niewouldt of the Care for Wild Team. The group wrote: It was instinctive for him to try and stay close to his mother to protect her, and the poachers with no sympathy or hesitation whatsoever lashed out at him so that they could finish their heinous crime of taking his mothers horn as quickly as possible.

Hillary Clinton makes a fool of herself by bashing Kavanaugh with debunked fake news claim "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Hillary Clinton came out swinging against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, bashing the judge for his hardline statements against contraception. The problem: he never said them. Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings dragged on over three bitter days last week, as Democrats took the judge to task over his opinions on abortion, gun rights, affirmative action, and the president's executive authority. One encounter in particular drew Clinton's attention. While being questioned by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Kavanaugh appeared to refer to birth control pills as "abortion-inducing drugs." A video of the encounter was shared by Democratic Rep. Kamala Harris, who described Kavanaugh's comparison as "a dog whistle for going after birth control," the term 'dog whistle' being a nonsensical 'woke' liberal term for covertly signalling support for extreme views. Clinton pounced on Wednesday, describing in a six-tweet rant how Kavanaugh was dog-whistling to the "extreme right," how he "misunderstands the basic science of birth control," and how "safe and legal abortion isn't the only fundamental reproductive right at grave risk if he is confirmed."
