Recent statistics out of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that the U.S. birth rate has hit an all-time low. Is there a reason for such a significant increase? A recent video published by the group Anonymous shares a frightening theory.
The estimated U.S. fertility rate in 2017 was approximately 1.76, which means that each woman in the country will have, on average, less than 2 children. This is the lowest that we have seen reported since 1978. Not only does this highlight a significant problem for our future when we lack the workforce required to care for an aging population, but it raises the question, why are we seeing such a significant decline in our fertility rate?
A recent video published by Anonymous touches on a theory that will make anyone question the decision that we are making in our lives today. The video never outright makes a statement about the reason for the decline in fertility, but it shares enough to make the point quite clear – Are we being poisoned by the pharmaceutical industry today?
The video discusses the concern associated with today’s vaccinations, including the association between the flu vaccine, one that we are encouraged to get each year, and miscarriage. Despite how common the flu vaccination is in our society today, this is a risk that is rarely discussed. This isn’t the only vaccination that has been suspected of causing problems with our fertility rates. The HPV vaccine has also been accused of increasing the risk of infertility among young girls and boys throughout the country.
Vaccinations aren’t the only risk worth consideration. Look at the use of the drug Tamiflu in the United States and the many health risks that have been associated with it. Furthermore, there is the debate surrounding fluoride in our drinking water and the recent consideration to spray chemicals into our atmosphere in an attempt to slow the effects of global warming. Is it possible that our lifestyle choices, and decisions being made by those in power, may actually be poisoning us and slowly killing off the human population?
