A Harvard study published in the journal Human Reproduction found a strong association between men's consumption of soy foods and decreased sperm counts. In the study, men who ate a variety of soy-containing foods and then underwent semen analysis had poor sperm quality. Animal studies also found connections between males chowing down on soy and erectile dysfunction. Since genetically engineered soy is found in the majority of processed foods, eat non-soy-containing foods made with whole ingredients as much as possible.

Bt176, the first GMO corn to be commercialized for animal feed back in 1995, has been found to be toxic to cows over the long-term. When GMO content in the feed reached 40 percent, mortality peaked at 10 percent
GMO-fed cows suffered liver disease, kidney dysfunction, mucosa problems, irregular heart function, mammary gland breaks, fatigue, impaired fertility, and other health problems
Bt toxin has been detected in women and babies, and in vitro experiments show Bt toxin produced by these plants affects human cells, both alone and in combination with glyphosate-based herbicide residues

Long-Term Studies Keep Finding Serious Health Problems With GMOs and Associated Chemicals

FDA issued a warning letter

Feb 07, 2016 - 3 comments

On January 15, 2016, the FDA issued a warning letter to Terra Firma Botanicals, Inc., following a facility inspection which found the company's products, including Horse Chestnut Varicose Away Spray, YeastEaze Vaginal Suppositories, Hawthorne Combo, Skin Combo, Milk Thistle, Turmeric, Turmeric/Ginger Combination, Depress-Shun, Bliss, Candida and Fungus Away -- Herbal Candida Relief and Herp-Eaze Formula to be adulterated because they prepared, packed, or held under conditions that violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements.

These violations include failure to prepare a written master manufacturing record (MMR) for each unique formulation of dietary supplement manufactured, and failure to establish and follow written procedures for the responsibilities of the quality control operations, as required by federal regulations.

In addition, statements about these products on the company's website were found to be drug claims. For example, Milk Thistle was promoted with statements such as "rebuilds & regenerates damaged liver cells." Turmeric was promoted with statements such as "remedy for arthritis." Herp-Eaze Formula was promoted with statements such as, "For those with chronic cold sores and/or herpes, our Herp-Eaze Formula will keep the virus at bay."

YeastEaze Vaginal Suppositories and Horse Chestnut Varicose Away Spray were also considered to be unapproved new drugs because they are designed to be inserted or used topically, while dietary supplements must be intended for digestion.
