President Putin has slammed “modern poisons” for destroying the average man’s health and sending sperm counts plummeting to record low levels, and warns that “unless urgent action is taken in the West, the human race is doomed.”
Sperm counts have plunged by nearly 60 per cent in just four decades among men living in Europe and the United States, according to a major review of scientific studies that suggests living in the Western world is causing serious damage to men’s health.
Pesticides, hormone-disrupting chemicals, and GMOs have all been suggested as possible reasons behind the dramatic decline in male sperm count levels and Putin told a Kremlin tour group that “urgent action” must be taken immediately.
“I don’t know what I have to do to get through to people. Can you see where this is headed? Where will we be in a few decades if this type of decline is not arrested? You don’t have to be a mathematics genius to figure it out,” Putin said.
“Unless urgent action is taken in the West, the human race is doomed. A young man born today in America will be completely sterilized by the time he is 40.”
It’s not the first time Putin has spoken out about the danger of GMOs and other “modern poisons” that are now part of daily life for most people in the West. In January 2016 he issued orders that his people must be protected from GMO “so-called food” and Western pharmaceuticals “at all costs.”
According to a Security Council (SCRF) report, Putin said the next stage of human evolution is currently in “grave risk” and that Western and global powers are “intentionally decelerating the process for their personal gain.”
“We as a species have the choice to continue to develop our bodies and brains in a healthy upward trajectory, or we can follow the Western example of recent decades and intentionally poison our population with genetically altered food, pharmaceuticals, vaccinations, and fast food that should be classified as a dangerous, addictive drug.”
“We must fight this. A physically and intellectually disabled population is not in our interests,” the report states.
Putin banned GMOs in Russia
Russia under President Putin has been giving away land for free in the past few years to people willing to farm organically and sustainably. The goal is to become the world’s “leading exporter” of non-GMO foods that are based on “ecologically clean” production.
In 2016 the Kremlin announced a stop to the production of all GMO-containing foods, seen as a major step in the fight against multinationals like Monsanto. Russia then banned the import of GMO ingredients, even banning GMOs in pet food and livestock feed to ensure genetically modified ingredients do not enter the food chain.
In December 2015, Putin told the Russian Parliament why he supports organic food cultivation:
“Not only can we ourselves eat it, but also taking into account our land and water – which is particularly important – resources Russia could become the world’s largest supplier of healthy, environmentally friendly, high-quality food that has long been missing in some western producers.”
It’s more than a bit ironic that a nation often characterized by Western media as being backwards and corrupt should be taking such a bold stance in favor of “healthy, environmentally friendly, high-quality food,” while the United States and other countries continue to give biotech companies free rein to pollute our water, earth and air.
The Russian leadership has been able to see through the lies of the GMO and Big Pharma industries while resisting their lobbying efforts, and have managed to set an example for the rest of the world.
