Vitamin C partially prevents reproductive damage in adult male rats exposed to rosuvastatin during prepuberty. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Food Chem Toxicol. 2017 Sep 6 ;109(Pt 1):272-283. Epub 2017 Sep 6. PMID: 28887090 Abstract Title:  Vitamin C partially prevents reproductive damage in adult male rats exposed to rosuvastatin during prepuberty. Abstract:  Pediatric obesity is closely associated with dyslipidemias and environmental factors, such as diet and lack of physical exercises, which may alter lipid profile in children. Rosuvastatin decreases serum total cholesterol and triglycerides concentrations. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) plays an important role on sperm integrity and fertility. Juvenile male rats were distributed into six experimental groups that received saline solution 0.9%, 3 or 10 mg/kg/day of rosuvastatin, 150 mg/day of ascorbic acid, or 3 or 10 mg/kg/day of rosuvastatin co-administered with 150 mg/day of ascorbic acid from PND23 until PND53 and then the rats were maintained until sexual maturity. Rosuvastatin-exposed groups showed lower sperm quality, androgen depletion and germ cell death. Ascorbic acid was capable to prevent partially the reproductive adverse effects provoked by rosuvastatin. In conclusion, prepubertal exposure to rosuvastatin provokes long-term reproductive damages at sexual maturity and ascorbic acid supplementation at prepuberty may be a preventive mode against these reproductive adverse effects.

Korean red ginseng ameliorated the devastating effects of Epididymo-orchitis on the sperm retrieved from either epididymis or testicle in rats. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Cell J. 2016 ;18(3):446-57. Epub 2016 Aug 24. PMID: 27602327 Abstract Title:  Ameliorating Effect of Ginseng on Epididymo-Orchitis Inducing Alterations in Sperm Quality and Spermatogenic Cells Apoptosis following Infection by Uropathogenic Escherichia coli in Rats. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: Epididymo-orchitis (EO) potentially results in reduced fertility in up to 60% of affected patients. The anti-inflammatory effects of Korean red ginseng (KRG) and its ability to act as an immunoenhancer in parallel with the beneficial effects of this ancient herbal medicine on the reproductive systems of animals and humans led us to evaluate its protective effects against acute EO.MATERIALS AND METHODS: This animal experimental study was conducted in the Department of Anatomical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, Zanjan University of Medical Sciences (ZUMS), Zanjan, Iran during 2013-2015. We divided 50 Wistar rats into five following groups (n=10 per group): i. Control-intact animals, ii. Vehicle-phosphate buffered saline (PBS) injection into the vas deferens, iii. KRG-an intraperitoneal (IP) injection of KRG, iv. EO-an injection of uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) strain M39 into the vas defer- ens, and v. EO/ KRG-injections of both UPEC strain M39 and KRG. The treatment lasted seven days. We then evaluated sperm parameters, number of germ cell layers, Johnson's criteria, germ cell apoptosis, body weight and relative sex organs weight.RESULTS: Acute EO increased the relative weight of prostate and seminal vesicles (P0.05). It also reduced sperm quality such as total motility, sperm concentration (P0.01), and the percentage of normal sperm (P0.001). Moreover, acute EO decreased Miller's (P0.05) and Johnsen's scores and increased apoptotic indexes of spermatogenic cells (P0.001). KRG treatment decreased prostate weight gain (P0.05) and improved the percentage of sperm with normal morphology, total motility (P0.01), and progressive motility (P0.05). The apoptotic indexes of spermatogenic cells reduced (P0.001), whereas both Johnsen's (P0.01) and Miller's criteria increased in the KRG-treated EO testis (P0.05).CONCLUSION: Consequently, KRG ameliorated the devastating effects of EO on the sperm retrieved from either epididymis or testicle in rats.

Long-term administration of Korean red ginseng water extract significantly delayed the aging-induced testicular dysfunction. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Exp Gerontol. 2017 Apr ;90:26-33. Epub 2017 Jan 23. PMID: 28126553 Abstract Title:  Korean red ginseng improves testicular ineffectiveness in aging rats by modulating spermatogenesis-related molecules. Abstract:  Korean red ginseng (Panax ginseng Meyer) is known to rejuvenate testicular effectiveness and the sperm maturation process by regulating redox proteins in aged rats. This study was performed to investigate the effect of Korean red ginseng water extract (KRG-WE) on the expression level of spermatogenesis-related key biomolecules and sex hormone receptors as well as enzymes regulating oxidation, histone deacetylation, and growth-related activities in aged rat testis. KRG-WE (200mg/kg) mixed with a regular pellet diet was administered to 12-month-old rats for 6months (KRG-AC), whereas the young (YC, 2months) and aged (AC, 12months) controls received the vehicle only. The results showed that the expression levels of spermatogenesis-related key biomolecules (inhibin-, nectin-2, and cyclic adenosine monophosphate [cAMP] responsive element binding protein [CREB]-1), sex hormone receptors (androgen, luteinizing- and follicle-stimulating hormone receptors [AR, LHR, and FSHR, respectively]), and antioxidant enzymes (glutathione S-transferase mu [GSTm]-5, glutathione peroxidase [GPx]-4, peroxiredoxin [PRx]-3), as well as histone deactylation (silent mating type information regulation 2 homolog 1, SIRT1) and growth-related (mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1, mTORC1) molecules were significantly altered in the AC group rat testes compared with those of the YC group. However, KRG-WE treatment of the AC group significantly (p

CDC Study Shows Up to 7.7 Times the Risk of Miscarriage After Influenza Vaccine "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

The CDC has just published a seismic study (Donahue et al. 2017 Vaccine 35:5314) linking spontaneous abortions in women to flu vaccines.  The study reviewed data for the 2010-11 and 2011-12 flu seasons.  Women vaccinated with the inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV) in the 2010-2011 season were 3.7 times more likely to experience a spontaneous abortion within 28 days than women not receiving the vaccine.  Over the entire study period (2010 to 2012), the odds for a spontaneous abortion for vaccinated women were 2.0 times greater than for those women not receiving the flu vaccine.  Both figures showed a statistically significant increase in miscarriages when women received their flu shot.  Most alarmingly, in women who received the H1N1 vaccine in the previous flu season, the odds of spontaneous abortion in the 28 days after receiving a flu vaccine was 7.7 times greater.

The vast majority of these flu vaccines were multi-dose formulations, containing 25 micrograms of mercury via the preservative thimerosal.  In those years, out of approximately 150 million flu shots given in the U.S. annually, less than 50 million or 34% of those vaccines available for pregnant women were thimerosal-free.

For many years, health officials have warned pregnant women to avoid eating mercury-containing tuna. And, even before this latest study, some government scientists were questioning the wisdom of pressuring women to receive mercury-laden flu shots in any trimester of pregnancy.  National Toxicology Program Deputy Director, Dr. George Lucier, said The developing fetus should NEVER be exposed to any amount of mercury, period!  In the words of senior CDC epidemiologist, Dr. William Thompson, So I dont know why they still give it [the flu shot] to pregnant women, like thats the last person I would give mercury to.

vaccine manufacturers acknowledge that flu vaccines have never been shown to be safe for pregnant women.

CDC officially claims that thimerosal is the safe mercury because it is purportedly excreted quickly from the body.  CDC bases this claim solely on its misinterpretation of data from a poorly designed study conducted in the early 2000s by an industry insider, Dr. Michael Pichichero. Subsequent studies have proven that the ethylmercury in thimerosal is actually far more persistent in organs than the methylmercury in fish (Burbacher et al. 2005 Environ Health Perspect. 113:1015) (Rodrigues et al. Arch Toxicol. 201...

Fundamental And Constitutional Rights Negated In The Realm of Totalitarian Corporatocracy "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Why are U.S. citizens being subjected to inhuman violations of their fundamental and Constitutional rights by vested corporate interests, and no one in Congress, or in the practice of law or the judicial system, is doing anything to correct and to restore basic unalienable human fundamental rights?

Two specific areas of modern commerce present overwhelming examples of gross human rights violations:

  1. The pharmaceutical industry with its consensus vaccine science, which inaccurately promotes and provides neurotoxic vaccines as safe and effective that mandatorily must be inoculated into infants within 24 hours of birth and at 2, 4 and 6 months of age when their immune systems and blood brain barriers are not fully developed, thereby predisposing unknown adverse health risks for which numerous innocent children will be sacrificed for the greater good, i.e., community immunity, with ensuing lifelong harmsor possibly even deathas evidenced by the CDCs VAERS reporting system and HRSA Vaccine VICP Claims Adjudications [1]; and
  2. The microwave industry and its acolyte subsidiary-like industries, e.g., public utilities, which utilize microwaves to provide electric, natural gas and water utilities metering services despite the plethora of scientific documentation regarding EMF/RF/ELF non-thermal radiation waves impairing and damaging DNA, cellular mitochondria and central nervous systems thereby subjecting customers/consume...

Medieval males were treated for infertility using ground up pig testicals "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

A recent study of medical and religious texts suggests that men were diagnosed with infertility as far back as Medieval times, and indeed may be held responsible for the inability to have children. Treatment regimes, at times bizarre and unpalatable, included eating ground up pig testicles. New Study Shows that Men Were Blamed for Infertility too For medieval men, success meant succession. Heredity was at the center of law and order, from the king down through the ranks of society. As a result, the moment children reached marriageable age everyone's focus was on their fertility. Even though it is believed that women in medieval England were blamed for childlessness most of the time, a new analysis of popular medical and religious books by the University of Exeter shows that from the 13th century, many of these medical texts acknowledged the possibility of male infertility, including sterility and "unsuitable seed" as Phys Org reports.

Your Vaccine Companys President Led Biowarfare Program & Experiments on Americans "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Did you know that your vaccines were made by a corporation whose president led the US biological warfare program? This video explains.

Merck and Co created the HPV vaccine Gardasil, the MMR vaccine, and others.

During the middle of World War II, George W. Merck, president of pharmaceutical company Merck and Co was in charge of the War Research Service, the biological warfare division of the Federal Security Agency in the US military.

George W. Merck secretly led the biological warfare agency during the same years he was the president of Merck and Co.

His trusting customers had no idea he was in charge of a secret biowarfare program: they only saw his face on the cover of Time Magazine, as he was lauded as some kind of hero for health.

His War Research Service was in charge of Ft. Detrick, in Maryland. Academic institutions participated in the War Research Service: the same prestigious colleges that promoted eugenics for decades leading up to World War II, such as Harvard and Stanford.

Ft. Detrick was a mad science center, and it produced biological warfare experiments on Americans. It produced the plan to spray San Francisco with the infertility causing bacteria Serratia marcescens.

Their techniques were improved with the aid of paperclipped Nazi scientist Kurt Blome. Kurt Blome was brought to the US from Germany to advise biowarfare experts at Ft. Detrick. He had a history of experimenting on victims with the dreadful Black Death, or Bubonic Plague.

In the very beginning of these biowarfare efforts at Ft. Detrick, that would lead to the spraying of San Francisco, George W. Merck was there.

George retired from Merck and Co in 1953, years after his retirement from biowarfare. Immediately following his departure, Merck manufactured Eli Lillys polio vaccine, which was found to be contaminated with the cancer causing virus SV40.

Today, Mercks HPV vaccine Gardasil has injured and killed thousands.

Those who wonder about the malicious intent of mandatory vaccination have been searching for answers: this history is sure to open to door to a lot of answers about why Mercks vaccines are killing people today.

What is a Traumatic Birth?swaraj-tiwari-90727

To many, it is a birth that leads to a diagnosable postpartum mood disorder such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Postpartum Depression (PPD), and/or Postpartum Anxiety (PPA). There are also many other possibilities for how a stressful birth can express itself after the particular event is over. Whether a person has enough symptoms to qualify for a medical diagnosis or not, symptoms and experiences can still interfere with daily life and bonding with the baby.

How to Recover from a Traumatic Birth?

Many people have different coping skills that can be used in recovering from a traumatic birth. Important to note, no matter what methods or therapies are utilized, recovery is not an automatic overnight process. All births take time to process and be incorporated into a personal history, whether it was ecstatic or traumatic. Many therapeutic methods can be helpful, no matter the overall birth experience.

10 Ways You Know Youre In Your Third Trimester "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

10 Ways You Know You're In Your Third Trimester

If you thought the first trimester was tough, its got nothing on the final few months of pregnancy. As you approach the end, time will slow down. What should be three months actually feels more like 18 years. At times, you will wonder whether you will be pregnant forever.

10 Ways You Know You're In Your Third Trimester

The weeks will tick by so slowly it will feel like youre stuck in a black hole where time has no meaning. Here are 10 ways you know youre in your third trimester:

#1: You Have To Hire An Industrial Crane For Your Bedroom

It is impossible to get comfy when youre heavily pregnant, and that is never more true than at night. You might think youll spend your nights tossing and turning. Think again. Theyre activities reserved for human-shaped bodies. Instead, you have to hire an industrial crane to help you change position in bed. You finally know how a beetle feels when it gets stuck on its back, tiny limbs wriggling in the air, as it desperately tries (and fails) to right itself. Your partner will eventually tire of heaving you out of bed. And shoving you from behind, every night, in an attempt to help you roll over, will get too exhausting. Just hire a crane, itll be easier. Sure, your partner might also get annoyed with the incessant beeping as the crane flips you over, but at least he wont be spending the twilight hours doing manual labour in an attempt to help you get comfy.

#2: You Have Frostbite From Wearing Flip Flops In The Snow

All women should be heavily pregnant in the warmer months. The sweatiness of giving birth on a hot day will be made bearable by the fact you can wear flip flops without getting frostbite in your toes. In the third trimester, putting shoes on is impossible. Even if you manage to force your swollen feet into a pair of comfy trainers, youll have no chance of tying the laces, due to the fact your belly is now bigger than a house. And dont even think of attempting to put on socks. Its just not possible. You'll have to embrace flip flops, even if you live at the North Pole.

#3: You Take Court-Ordered Anger Management Classes

Women in their third trimester inevitably end up taking anger management classes. Mainly because theyve punched to...

The most challenging thing you will ever do "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Parenting is, hands down, the most challenging thing you will ever do. It is scary, troubling, enthralling and exciting. It requires long hours, Herculean patience, trust and thousands of other skills and characteristics that our kids deserve and demand. As such, it absolutely requires-requires- us to do so much more than simply go through the motions, checking the block at each milestone and focusing on achievement. It requires us to think with our heads, lead with our hearts, question, learn, listen, and stay in the moment whenever possible.

Regardless of our philosophies on parenting or education unschooler or not, attachment parenting or not, or whatever your child rearing ideology-parenting really only requires one thing. It requires us to consider our choices and the impact those choices will have on our relationship with our children as well on their futures. It requires that we parent consciously, purposefully, thoughtfully. And regardless of the choices we make, parenting requires us to really think about it.

10 Ways You Know Youre In Your Second Trimester "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

10 Ways You Know You're In Your Second Trimester

The second trimester is supposedly the best of the three. Youve survived the first trimester and all of the vomiting, napping and secret-keeping that entailed. But youre not yet into the physical exhaustion and backache of the final stretch. This is supposed to be your favourite trimester. Your pregnancy secret is out, but the end isnt really in sight yet. You can bask in the loving attention of your friends and family without having to panic too much about the birth (thats still ages away).

10 Ways You Know You're In Your Second Trimester

As far as pregnancy goes, your second trimester should provide you with a much-needed break from the pregnancy symptoms that have been having such an impact on your daily life. Many women say the second trimester gives them a healthy glow, a gorgeous head of hair and boundless energy. That doesnt mean its smooth sailing, though. Youre still busy growing another human being, after all. Of course, you might not be one of those more fortunate women. Other women often complain about acne, greasy hair and haemorrhoids. Here are 10 ways you know youre in your second trimester:

#1: You Cant Look Your Boss In The Eye

Or the postman. Or the woman who works behind the checkout at the supermarket. Or your neighbour. Why? Because you have had sexy dreams about them all. The pregnancy hormones seem to have permanently turned you on. You cant take a nap without dreaming about seducing somebody you have never fancied before. Its all that extra blood flow to your genitals, and the extra estrogen. Surely it could be put to good use with your partner, or a hot movie star. But no, your sex-crazed mind will drag any non-sexy person in for your fantasies.

#2: You Keep Waking Up In A Panic Thinking Youve Broken Your Leg

Well, thatll serve you right for having such energetic sex dreams. If you wake up screaming, in excruciating pain because you think youve broken your leg, its probably the leg cramp many women experience during the second trimester. Seriously, there is no pain like it. And its not a nice way to be woken ou...

These findings reveal the adverse effects of HFCS drinking on the reproductive function and lipid metabolism of female rats. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Dev Reprod. 2017 Jun ;21(2):151-156. Epub 2017 Jun 30. PMID: 28785736 Abstract Title:  Effect of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) Intake on the Female Reproductive Organs and Lipid Accumulation in Adult Rats. Abstract:  High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is widely used as sweetener, and its overconsumption is become a major health problem. In the present study, we used adult female rats and applied a 28 days HFCS feeding model to monitor the estrous cycle and changes in tissue weights and histology. Adult female rats were divided into three groups. Animals were fed with ad libitum normal chow and (1) 24 hours tap water (Control group), (2) 12 hours HFCS access during dark period and 12 hours tap water (12H group), and (3) 24 hours HFCS only access (24H group). Total exposure period was 28 days. There is no significant change in body weight between control and HFCS-fed animals. Both absolute and relative weights of ovary in 24H animals were significantly heavier than those in control or 12H animals. The absolute and relative weights of the kidney and liver in 24H groups were significantly heavier than those in control or 12H animals. The estrous cycles of the 24H animals were significantly longer. Histological analyses revealed that 24H ovaries were relatively bigger and possessed more corpus lutea than control ovaries. Uterine sections of 12H and 24H animals showed a well-developed stratum vasculare between inner and outer myometrial layers. The number of endometrial glands were decreased in 12H uteri, and recovered in 24H uteri compared to control. Numbers of convoluted tubule in distal region increased in 12H and 24H kidney samples. Liver specimens of 12H and 24H showed the increased number of fat containing vacuoles. In conclusion, our study demonstrated that HFCS treatment for 28 days could induce (1) changes in length of estrous cycle with extended estrous and diestrous stages, (2) altered ovarian and uterine histology, and (3) liver and renal lipid accumulation. These findings reveal the adverse effects of HFCS drinking on the reproductive function and lipid metabolism of female rats.

When Does Implantation Bleeding Occur and How Does It Look Like? "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Knowing exactly when implantation bleeding occurs is helpful information for women who are trying to get pregnant. Implantation bleeding or spotting can be one of the first visible signs of pregnancy and it usually happens when the fertilized egg implants itself on the wall of the uterus. Bleeding caused by implantation doesnt happen with every woman, however, if it does, implantation spotting may occur around 10 to 14 days after ovulation.

Menstrual bleeding can be easily mistaken for implantation bleeding because the timings can be similar. Also, the spotting on underwear when implantation takes place can look like the start of the menstrual period. Knowing when implantation bleeding starts and what the other signs of pregnancy to look for can help you know if its time to take a pregnancy test.

This article looks at all you need to know about implantation bleeding and how to know when implantation bleeding or spotting happens.

What is Implantation Bleeding?

Implantation bleeding or implantation spotting refers to light vaginal bleeding that occurs when a fertilized egg gets attached to the wall of the uterus or endometrial lining. This causes spotting before your period.

The National Institutes of Health says that about 25% of pregnant women notice light spotting as one of the first signs that conception has happened. However, because implantation bleeding happens around the same time the period is due, it is a reason why many women mistake spotting associated with pregnancy for the start of their period.1

When Does Implantation Bleeding Occur and How Long Does It Last?

When exactly can you expect implantation bleeding to occur if you have become pregnant? There is no exact day when spotting happens due to implantation. However, doctors give a timeframe when you could see the visible signs that fertilization and implantation have occurred.

When the fertilized egg implants into the endometrial lining, some blood vessels are broken down. According to the American Pregnancy Association, this results in slight bleeding that can happen about 10 days after ovulation.2

Regarding the time when to expect implantation spotting to happen after fertilization, Dr. Nivin Todd on WebMD provides some helpful information on the steps that take place before implantation bleeding may happen:3

  1. Ovulation occurs about 2 weeks before the start of your next period.
  2. The egg moves into the fallopian tube and stays there for about 24 hours.
  3. If a sperm...

Agent Orange: 24 Chilling Photos Of The War Crime The US Got Away With "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

For ten years during the Vietnam War, the United States used a toxic concoction of two herbicides, labeled Agent Orange, to wipe out large areas of Vietnam which were covered by thick jungle. The aim was to enable easier and more effective bombing of enemy bases. The issue was, Agent Orange wasnt just an herbicide it was also a deadly weapon, as it contains large amounts of dioxin.

Agent Orange was discovered in the year 1943 by American botanist Arthur Galston. Between the years of 1962 and 1971, the US army showered the deadly chemical over Southern Vietnam as part of the military operation Ranch Hand, or Trail Dust. In total, more than 20 million gallons of Agent Orange was used. Sadly, Agent Orange did more than contribute to the deforestation of vast areas of land. It also contaminated air, water, and food sources.

History Rundown reports that in high concentrations, dioxin can trigger severe inflammation of the skin, lungs and mucous tissues. Sometimes, the toxicity can result in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pulmonary edema, and even death. The highly effective carcinogen is also known to affect the eyes, liver, and kidneys, and to cause laryngeal and lung cancer.

As a result of using Agent Orange during the Vietnam War, more than 400,000 people were killed or maimed, and at least 500,000 children were born with mild to severe birth defects. Additionally, 5 million acres of forests and millions more of farmland were destroyed. Agent Orange is said to have killed 10 times more people than all chemical weapons combined.

Because the United States didnt technically violate international laws, as it signed defense treaties with Southern Vietnams government and its actions (for the most part) were in line with the defense treaties, there was no reprimand for using Agent Orange as a chemical weapon during the war. That doesnt mean hundreds of thousands didnt suffer or continue to today.

Today, many Agent Orange victims live in Peace Villages, communities where workers care for them and try to give them a normal life. However, normal will never truly be possible for most, as mutations caused by Agent Orange still affect the people and the children of Vietnam. As AllThatIsInteresting reports, those who can live in Peace Village are luckier than some of their siblings. Reportedly, some victims of the chemical agent are too deformed to even survive childbirth.......
