U.S. Birth Rate Hits Lowest Level in Centuries

I was reading this article about how the US birth rate has dropped to the lowest level in centuries. The article says it is because of the economic crisis. Don't get me wrong I'm sure that did keep some women from having babies.
I'm guessing there are a lot of causes for the drop but I'm thinking at least one of them has to be GMO foods.
I know adult like to plan pregnancies even though the majority of pregnancy are not planned. Not sure how the economy would effect birth rates so much when the cdc said in 2001 50% of pregnancies were unplanned. Lets look at a group who for the most part never intend to get pregnant.

GMO foods hit the market in the early 90's when teen pregnancy rates were super high. Then even though we had a great economy birth rates dropped not just for teens

You see a big deep in birthrates during the great depression , when people get birth control, and a lesser deep when GMO's hit the market. Today unlike during the great depression American's are not malnourished which would also explain a drop in birthrate.   

Studies show that GM food cause infertility 

The more generations the higher the rate of infertility.

Among other terrible things like
organ failure

Super pathogens 

Another disturbing graph shows that infant mortality rate have stopped decreasing and some years go up since GM food went on the market 

Europe labels GM foods and Germany has outlawed them all together. 

Even with out all this I think people should have the right to know if they are eating GM foods. We shouldn't have to be their lab rats. Please write/call/email anyone who will listen. Tell them you don't want GM foods. Plus if you can please buy organic and local! 

P.S. Also life expectancy has dropped. I don't think GM foods are the only reason for this stuff. I just think it probably has something to do with it.


  1. You know I love you. But the reason our infant mortality rate is so high is because we don't have socialized medicine - it is not to do with genetically modified foods.

  2. I think we would be better off with universal health care to. Even if you don't agree with me thank you for reading.
