Some sombre thoughts on a doc at CBC last night, about the increase of male infertility of many species including man, with all the poison brew we have manufactured, for the last fifty years.
I shall add the broadcast if it works.

•There are more than 20 heavily industrialized nations where the birth of baby boys has declined every year for the past 30 years - amounting to 3 million fewer baby boys.
•The number of boys born with penis abnormalities and genital defects has increased by 200% in the past two decades.
•Boys have a higher incidence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disabilities, Tourett's syndrome, cerebral palsy and dyslexia.
•Boys are four times as likely to be autistic.
•The average sperm count of a North American college student today is less than half of what it was 50 years ago.
•The quality of sperm is declining. Eighty-five per cent of the sperm produced by a healthy male is DNA-damaged.
•Damaged sperm have been linked to a 300% increase in testicular cancer - a form of cancer that affects young men in their 20s and 30s.
•The chemical industry has developed more than 90,000 man-made chemicals in the last sixty years. Eighty-five percent of them have never undergone testing for their impact on the human body.


Bringing death to life,
Or life to death,
If only laws of greed abide,
From caverns deep,
And fossil old,
Black tears make weep,
Massive graves, destructions pool,
Rotten flesh and trees,
Siphoned by a greedy fool,
A catastrophe brought back to life,
Slowly even now it kills,
Instead of blessings, brings much strife,
A child at play,
Man’s mind of knowing,
His wisdoms toys,
Now our destruction sowing,
The founder of all knowing blessed,
The maker of all things,
Forbade, all secrets from him wrest,
Not that, the little men in coats of white,
The schooled and brilliant of our time,
Often thought they found the light,
The basic truth though sure escapes,
A secret far too deep,
Even for us modern apes,
Still if Hippocrates knew
First do no harm,
To me our you,
Why I ask, this not apply,
To all of precious life,
Kill man and bird and fly,
We might well copy clone or wish,
To resurrect, or bring new life,
In a Petrie dish,
My doubts persist this will ever be,
That primal soup that God had made,
These secrets give to you or me,
Knowing that our joy and pride,
Curiosity and greed,
Make little Gods of men in white,
And truly too, we think they are,
Their products we enjoy,
From plastic bottles, to Otto’s car,
Flea spray, fly spray, and a host of others,
Riverbeds of medicines,
Kill all things male, and soon their mothers,
This witches pot of poison brew,
Like children stir the pot,
Not knowing what we do,
We harvest life from riverbed,
From living earth and tree,
And bring it death instead,
Such knowing is but shallow bait,
It sure is full of glitter gold,
When all of life to rest is laid.©04/10/2009

And God only knows what horrendous effects they are having on nature, on our environment, and on our planet, itself. I doubt we human beings are as 'intelligent' and 'superior' as so many still proclaim.

We, the old guard, are witnessing the collective suicide of the masses that consume the elixirs and poisons of youth peddled by little greedy men with deep pockets.
I don't think that at this stage, saying "I told you so" will help.
That "science fiction" visions of Terra going Mars steril way is not so farfetched now.

Well, about the time we've killed off ourselves having taken 80% of the current species with us, ole' ma earth will get back to the business of nature. She don't give three shits for us and rightly so. Patrick

the honey bees are also dieing off for the past 5 years!
It is frightful...Robins are picking the blooms off in gardens
& taking freshly sprouted seedlings...the animals, insects: everyhting is affected by our horrible carlessness to ourselves
& to our planet...I am very worried.
Love & Blessings & Thank You for Sharing "A poison brew"
