The Intersection Between Our Environment and Reproductive Health

This Earth Day, think about how toxic chemicals are impacting both the environment and human health - especially reproductive health of women. More people are paying a high price for every day products in our homes due to poor regulation of toxins.

so true, and they're coming at us from all sides.

On this earth day, I would like to draw your attention to the geoengineering that is taking place above us. Planes are dropping particulates including aluminum that are poisoning our earth, water and sky. Naysayers dismiss these as normal contrails, but they are not. Monsanto has developed aluminum resistant seeds, and soon these will be the only plants that will be able to grow in our soil. If you care about the future of life on earth, I urge you to check out and especially The second site contains a simple app for your smartphone that will allow you to take photos of chemtrails overhead and immediately send them to your elected representative along with a petition to stop geoengineering now.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer our earth mother.

Grateful to share the planet with you.

Noted and shared. Great article.

I find it interesting that one of our states, can't remember which one, I believe just made it a crime for a woman who is addicted to heroin to have a baby born addicted. Yet, we have these corporations pouring chemicals into our water, polluting our air, and poisoning our food and land, to the extent that 287 different chemicals are found in the umbilical cords of newborns.

While I think it's horrible that a child is born addicted to any drug, I find it far worse that newborns are having to battle toxic chemicals right out of the womb. Where is the outrage from state and federal legislators about this poisoning of newborns? None? No, they are all to ready to jump on women, while turning a blind eye to corporate poisoning of us all really.

I always think of chemical exposure as something to look at whenever a birth defect or health problem becomes more prevalent or spikes in a geographic area.

My late father was a professor of civil engineering and specialized in ecology. As a young child I recall him connecting between air pollution and water pollution and miscarriages (in Israel). He wanted to do a study on this subject but it never really materialized, probably because of financial issues (as usual). I also remember thinking that our cat, who miscarried three times, could also be influenced by the same things. Thanks for this article, just emphasizing that we hardly have any control over our health, we think we do, but actually we do not! Very scary.
Thanks Susanne.

Personally with the over population of people on Earth, I would think the infertility is a gift. The most important act anyone can do to day is to either have no children or just one. People are over crowding the planet and causing so many wonderful animals to die out because of us. To me anyway it is selfish today to have more than one child, we must remember animals and insect and trees are all living beings and deserve the right to have a place to call home.,Rainforests are being destroyed for palm oil, well animals do not use it so it must be us. Time to say no to Palm oil in our products. The least we can do is help the planet and all its life anyway we can.

Thank you dearly for posting this article Suzanne and GG for the forward. I have felt this to be true for many decades, having the good fortune to have a 'Radical' teacher (who studied with Al Gore I discovered many, many years later). Unfortunately she was terminated after 2 years AS SHE WAS THE MOST POPULAR TEACHER who taught us ALL TRUTHS! That was the problem, she taught TRUTH. Every word she shared about every topic she spoke, on was DEAD ON! She planted the environmental seed in my SOUL and I have been rabid about our precious mother (EARTH) since. There is no denying by anyone with eyes that this is a REALITY. I appreciate the organizations listed in the article as there are many I am unaware of. THANK YOU and forgive me for not being ABLE to note this on Earth Day-'MY" most Sacred of days in the WORLD.
We all are aware that overpopulation is a main reason, if not the worst, but with the psycho-Religious population who refuse birth-control under any circumstances along with what our Government is doing, State by State to shut down clinics I take offence to anyone stating "people being selfish". A bit off topic, but I read this more and more and it irks me as it is far too late at this time to blame the ignorant or Religious extremest. Jeanenne this is by no means to disrespect your statement, as I agree with you. I just feel we have exceeded your logic at the current state of what I feel is irreversible.

Oooops...Last sentence was meant to say.. .WE HAVE EXCEEDED ALL LOGIC TO CORRECT THE CURRENT STATE OF AFFAIRS WHICH I FEEL IS IRREVERSIBLE. That was what I should have said to begin with, rather then my little rant on being 'selfish' in any way. PLEASE FORGIVE ME?
