Fertility Rates Have Now Fallen Below The Level That Replaces Our Existing Population

Fertility Rates Have Now Fallen Below The Level That Replaces Our Existing Population

You might have heard in the news recently the report by the CDC that our country’s birth rates have now fallen below the level to replace the existing population.

The reason they say is mostly environmental, for example the days are hotter and the air pollution is the worst it has ever been, just to name a couple “environmental” excuses they claim. Now, there’s no question our environment is so polluted that both humans and animals alike are constantly born with deformities and other mutations. But let’s be honest with ourselves – the environment is not the biggest culprit here!

Obviously it is the fact that more and more adults who were sick as children, which is at the highest rate now, too, then become infertile as adults; this is for both men and women.

For example, candida, endometriosis, lupus, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, PCOS, low progesterone, low testosterone and … Read the rest

What You Need to Know About the Jim Beam Bourbon Fire

What You Need to Know About the Jim Beam Bourbon Fire

On Tuesday, July 2, a fire broke out in one of Jim Beam’s Kentucky whiskey warehouses, which quickly spread through the structure and then to a second warehouse. The fire burned for days, and it eventually destroyed both structures and the whiskey inside them. According to Whiskycast, Beam had a sprinkler system, which did go off, but the blaze was so intense it overwhelmed the sprinklers. The two buildings housed approximately 45,000 barrels of bourbon, all of which were destroyed by the fire or lost in runoff from damaged barrels.

 

The runoff liquid, which was by then a mixture of bourbon and the water that had been used for flame suppression, made its way to the Kentucky River, where it entered the water and began traveling downstream, according to the BBCRead the rest

Is Reforestation the Best Way to Fight Climate Change? This Study Says Yes

Is Reforestation the Best Way to Fight Climate Change? This Study Says Yes

Electric vehicles. Carbon-capture devices. Replacing cattle with bison. Lots of ideas have been tossed around for addressing climate change, but a new study suggests that one of the most effective solutions is pretty simple: Just plant more trees—a trillion of them to be exact.

The research, conducted by the Swiss university ETH Zurich, found that around 0.9 billion hectares (roughly 2.2 billion acres) of land is suitable for reforestation around the globe. If it were populated with trees, they could capture about 205 billion metric tons of carbon: That’s two-thirds of all the human-generated carbon emissions released since the Industrial Revolution.

“We all knew that restoring forests could play a part in tackling climate change, but we didn’t really know how big the impact would be,” professor and study co-author Thomas Crowther said in … Read the rest

The Best Reef-Safe SPF to Protect Your Skin and the Ocean

The Best Reef-Safe SPF to Protect Your Skin and the Ocean

Talk about unintended consequences. The sunscreen saving us from becoming lobsters often contains chemicals that wash off into the ocean and threaten corals. Do your part. Use reef-safe sunscreens that are ocean-friendly.

These omit harmful ingredients and use non-nanosize zinc, making the sun-protecting mineral less able to be absorbed by corals.

Here are six reef-safe lotions, sprays, lip balms, and sticks that pass muster. Protect Mother Earth using this trove of ocean-friendly SPF all summer long. And don’t worry: Just because they’re gentle on the ocean doesn’t mean they’re any less effective at safeguarding your skin.

How and Why I Protect Myself from Glyphosate

How and Why I Protect Myself from Glyphosate

Glyphosate is one of the active ingredients in Roundup® – the most commonly used herbicide in the world.  Most of us are exposed to glyphosate every day, often without realizing it.  In fact, an estimated 93% of Americans have glyphosate in their bodies, with children having the highest level, according to a 2015 study by the University of California at San Francisco.  Glyphosate can be found in breast milk, drinking water, rain samples, and the food we feed our families.  It’s sprayed on food crops, playgrounds, parks, school grounds, and yards.   So, how can you escape it?

It’s nearly impossible to completely avoid glyphosate, but there are steps you can take to dramatically reduce your exposure.  Here’s how and why I protect myself from glyphosate.

Why I Protect Myself from Glyphosate:

  1. Glyphosate is a patented antibiotic, which means it kills “good” microbes in your gastrointestinal tract, as well

Xander Schauffele Talks Playing the U.S. Open, His Go-to Workout, and Environmental Awareness

Xander Schauffele Talks Playing the U.S. Open, His Go-to Workout, and Environmental Awareness

As a professional golfer, Xander Schauffele spends most of his time outside on some incredible courses around the world on the PGA Tour. Seeing places like Pebble Beach Golf Links—where the 2019 U.S. Open is being held—and those other incredible locations has given Schauffele an appreciation of the environment and why it’s important to raise awareness about protecting it.

That’s one reason why Schauffele wanted to get involved when Adidas partnered with Parley for the Oceans to create the first-ever golf shoe made from upcycled plastic waste, the TOUR360 XT Parley. Adidas manufactured the golf shoe with plastic waste that was intercepted from beaches and coastal communities before reaching the ocean. The TOUR360 XT Parley is built with the TOUR360 XT eight-spike outsole with X-Traxion technology, giving golfers extra traction and stability on the course.

A New Report Finds a ‘High Likelihood’ of Climate Disaster Ending Human Civilization by 2050

A New Report Finds a ‘High Likelihood’ of Climate Disaster Ending Human Civilization by 2050

News about climate change continues to get worse—and a new report is even more troubling, both for the dire predictions it contains and its critique of past reports, which it claims have often been watered-down. The latest analysis is published by the Breakthrough National Centre for Climate Restoration, an Australia-based think tank, Vice reports. The researchers conclude that “climate change now represents a near- to mid-term existential threat to human civilization” and criticizes existing climate reports for being too conservative in gauging the effects of carbon emissions. The risks of climate change, the researchers assert, are much bigger, and much more imminent, than most policymakers will admit.

“Human life on earth may be on the way to extinction, in the most horrible way,” wrote retired Australian Navy Admiral Chris Barrie in the report’s foreword.

Healing the Gut–will new AI technology make your MD obsolete?

Healing the Gut–will new AI technology make your MD obsolete?

“So, I want to give you a sense of the
amount of data that you can get from a single sample, right? If I get stool
sample and go through the lab process and generate the data that corresponds to
that one sample, it’s several gigabytes of data. In fact, if you think about it
as the number of books that you might want to read or something, in one sample
there’s the equivalent of a public library’s worth of books.” Guru Banavar from
the Interconnected series

Imagine a world where
everything you need to know about yourself was as close as your bathroom.  Years ago, stool specimens were mostly used
for detecting occult blood, bacteria or parasites.  Artificial Intelligence data can now give you
an entire library of information about your gut microbiome from one stool
specimen—the deficiencies in nutrients, and toxicities that are causing
inflammation.

Record-Breaking Sea Dive Finds Evidence of New Underwater Species—And Trash

Record-Breaking Sea Dive Finds Evidence of New Underwater Species—And Trash

American explorer Victor Vescovo is like a character in a Jules Verne novel come to life: Having already summited the highest mountain on every continent, he has now turned his attention downward—to the vast uncharted depths of the ocean. As part of the Five Deeps Expedition, a mission to reach the deepest points in every ocean, he as now completed the deepest solo manned sea dive ever recorded, CNN Travel reports. Using a specially designed submarine, Vescovo ventured 35,853 feet to the bottom of Challenger Deep in the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench. He returned with reports of new species of marine life and, unfortunately, plastic trash, even tens of thousands of feet below the ocean’s surface.

The Geoengineering Chemical of the “Future” that has Been Dispersed by Jet Aircraft for Decades

The Geoengineering Chemical of the “Future” that has Been Dispersed by Jet Aircraft for Decades

Researching such a tight lipped subject as geoengineering, investigators must rely on scientific studies, patents and what the climate scientists and their corporate backers plan on doing in the “future”. No one is going to openly admit that geoengineering or Solar Radiation Management is happening now because of the dangers involved. Using scientific studies from the geo-engineers at Harvard,Yale and M.I.T. as well as what is publicly known about these lines in the sky produced by jet aircraft and their effects. It is possible to paint a picture of a current geoengineering program that is fully admitted and about to be ramped up.

Two chemicals keep coming up in almost all the research for geoengineering or the newly publicized name of Stratospheric Aerosol Injection. Aluminum and Sulfur Oxides always seem to be the front runners when it comes to Solar Radiation Management and geoengineering as the ice crystals they … Read the rest
