As a generalized rule, what disturbs sperm production and fertility also disturbs testosterone production and function in men and even estrogen in women. Thus, reducing Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals that disrupt fertility, will generally be favorable for testosterone or estrogen regulation. More detailed advice on how to prevent EDC intake in everyday life is again provided in S. Swan’s “Countdown”, Chapter 11.
Below is a short list of the most prevalent sources and measures for prevention that are relatively easy to implement. For reduction of endocrine disrupting non-ionizing radiation (EDNR), see paragraph at the end of this chapter.
1.1. Minerals and vitamins
Deficiency in Magnesium, Selenium[i], Zinc, Vitamin C [ii], Vitamin D, Vitamin E [iii] [iv], are all associated with testosterone/ estrogen disfunction and deficiency. Coincidently, deficiency of some of these minerals and vitamins can also be induced by wireless- EMF.
Zinc and vitamin D were not only successfully used in animal studies to alleviate the harmful effects of mobile/ wireless EMF, but it was shown that zinc deficiency can actually be induced by EMF exposure.
As it happens, deficiency of zinc and vitamin C, D, E is also implicated in the treatment and prevention of severe cases of COVlD 19.
“One of the risk factors du jour for cor0navirus disease 2019 (COVlD -19) has been vitamin D deficiency.” Even Dr. Faucl recommends Vitamin D supplements (see below). [v]
Testosterone and COVlD
First a disclaimer: COVlD-19 is an infectious virus disease, take measures to protect yourself and others.
“For men, low testosterone means high a risk of severe COVlD-19.
Scientist presented new clues on why more men than women develop severe disease outcomes.” [vi]
The connection was corroborated by this case-control study: Severely low testosterone in males with COVlD-19, “significantly lower levels of LH and tT were found in patients with COVlD-19 compared to healthy controls.”
“Testosterone levels suggestive for hypogonadism were observed in 89.8% of patients at hospital admission. In as many as 85% of cases, hypogonadism was secondary.” [vii]
“Abhinav Diwan, MD, professor of medicine, lead author of a recent Covld study, supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), found if a man had low testosterone when he first came to the hospital, his risk of having severe COVlD-19 — meaning his risk of requiring intensive care or dying — was much higher compared with men who had more circulating testosterone. And if testosterone levels dropped further during hospitalization, the risk increased. It was found that “Lower testosterone levels seemed to predict which patients were likely to become very ill over the next few days.” [viii]
Similarly, in Sept 2020, Aneela N. Hussain et al concluded: “Low testosterone levels in males [with Covld 19] have a direct correlation with the high probability of Intensive Care Unit admission and the worse disease outcome (Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), duration of ICU stay and mortality).” [ix]
Then it turned out Covld deaths were associated with areas of 5G high mmW exposure in the United States.
Stephanie McCarter, MD, 2020 revealed: There was a statistically “significant increase in the rates of COVlD-19 cases and deaths in the areas of the US with 5G high mmW (millimeter Wave) exposure. 5G mmW index was a statistically significant factor for the higher cases and rates in all three analyses in all 50 states, the country’s largest counties, and the largest counties in California.”
“Covld death per million were 94% higher and deaths per test were 81% higher in 5G high mmW areas.”
McCarter summarized: «the potential for 5G and even lower RF frequencies to contribute to increased infection by COVlD-19 and the severity of infection has clear evidence in multiple peer-reviewed studies. The mechanisms of RF causing increased infection and its severity include oxidative stress with depletion of key nutrients like Vitamin D and glutathione.” [x]
EMFs cause mineral and vitamin deficiency
Dr. Trevor Marshall demonstrated that very low radiofrequencies, much lower than 5G frequencies, affect the human Vitamin-D receptor (VDR) in the cell by changing its shape. This change in the receptor affects its ability to bind with vitamin D. The binding of VDR with vitamin D is important in regulating cellular metabolic pathways. [xi]
See more on the effects of vitamin D deficiency below.
To add to the problem, Wi-Fi router radiation has caused lung tissue changes in rats. [xii] As we saw on page 61, a Wi-Fi router increased antibiotic resistance and motility of E Coli and increased metabolic activity and biofilm production in Staphylococcus Aureus and Staphylococcus Epidermis.
It should be carefully considered in a pandemic with a virus that causes lung inflammation, whether it is the best idea to lock people in their homes, in home office, in front of their computers and TV screens, next to their Wi-Fi routers for years, without sunlight.
In addition to this, extensive hygiene mask wearing can propagate the buildup of bacteria and fungi in the respiratory system.
Male albino rats who were exposed to a 950 MHz electromagnetic field (EMF), showed significant increases in iron copper levels and copper/zinc ratio accompanied with a decrease of zinc level in all studied organs. [xiii] As we’ll see shortly, exposure to an electromagnetic field (a 50-Hz frequency magnetic field for 5 minutes every other day over a period of 6 months) caused cellular damage in lung and liver tissues in rats and zinc supplementation inhibited the inflicted cellular damage. [xiv]
Vitamin D deficiency, wireless EMF and virus diseases: closing the circle to testosterone function
Extensive research exists documenting vitamin D’s role in decreasing risk of infection from pathogens as well as strengthening immune function. “Over a decade ago low vitamin D levels were identified as a pandemic. “ [xv]
Vitamin D is an important factor in estrogen biosynthesis of both female and male gonads. [xvi]
“Taking vitamin D supplements might correct a deficiency and even contribute to increased testosterone levels.” [xvii]
Likewise for women, there is a “positive correlation” between vitamin D and estradiol. In other words, women with lower levels of vitamin D tended also to have lower levels of estradiol, and women with higher levels of vitamin D tended also to have higher levels of estradiol. [xviii]
More recently, “one of the risk factors du jour for cor0navirus disease 2019 (COVlD-19) has been vitamin D deficiency.”
Even Anthony Fauci, MD, has said in 2020, he takes a vitamin D supplement. Vitamin D “does have an impact on your susceptibility to infection,” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told actress Jennifer Garner in a September interview. “I would not mind recommending—and I take it myself—taking vitamin D supplements.” [xix]
Further studies have shown that “vitamin D levels are a critical factor in prevention of severe COVlD 19 infections.” [xx]
“Vitamin D is critical for prevention as well as recovery, significantly lowering the risk of mortality in COVlD-19.” [xxi]
In addition, Daneshkhah et al presented evidence for an association of vitamin D status with cytokine storm and unregulated inflammation in COVlD-19 patients. [xxii]
Wireless EMF and vitamin D
In trials with male albino rats – who had lower testosterone values after mobile phone exposure with a harmful effect on testicular function – vitamin D resulted in a significant recovery of the hormonal deficits. [xxiii]
EMF exposure to rats for 30 days, 1 h/day, resulted in significant decrease in immunoglobulin levels. Vitamin D supplementation reversed these results. It was concluded that exposure to mobile phone radiation compromises the immune system of rats, and vitamin D appears to have a protective effect. [xxiv]
Sunlight and vitamin D3 can have a positive effect on some men fertility parameters. After the exposure to sunlight, there was a significant increase in count, activity and normal morphology of seminal fluid as well as elevation in LH, FSH and testosterone and vitamin D3 level in the blood. [xxv]
In another study, vitamin D showed protective effects against the harmful effects of cell phone radiation exposure on Albino rat testis. [xxvi]
“For humans, vitamin D is not available in large enough quantities in food. The human body synthesizes the vitamin when exposed to sunlight, and this is the best source of vitamin D. “ [xxvii]
Vitamin C and E
“Vitamin E has been recognized as a requirement for normal testicular function for more than 50 years.” [xxviii]
“Exposure to 900-MHz radiation emitted by mobile phones to rats is associated with endometrial apoptosis and oxidative stress, but treatment with vitamins E and C can diminish these changes. ” [xxix]
Further, vitamin E consumption has protective effects against 3 militesla electromagnetic field effects on oxidative parameters in rats. Vitamin E treatment significantly prevented the increase of the Malandialdehyde (MDA) levels and Glutathione peroxidise (GSHPx) activity and also prevented the decrease of superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity in tissue. [xxx]
In another study with rats exposed to 900 MHz EMF, vitamin E as well as silymarin has significantly reduced oxidative stress and ameliorated hormone levels, including free testosterone levels. [xxxi]
Further, pumpkin seed oil and vitamin E have improved reproductive function of male rats who were inflicted by testicular injury. [xxxii]
EMF and zinc (organic) supplementation
Extremely low-frequency magnetic field decreased calcium, zinc and magnesium levels in costa of rat.
The rats were exposed to 100 and 500 μT ELF-MF, which are the safety standards of public and occupational exposure, for 2 h/day during 10 months. Levels of Calcium (Ca); Magnesium (Mg), and Zinc (Zn) were all significantly decreased in the ELF-500 exposure groups. It was concluded that long-term ELF-MF exposure can affect the chemical structure and metabolism of bone by changing the levels of some important elements such as Ca, Zn and Mg in rats. [xxxiii]
Zinc supplementation inhibits tissue damage caused by exposure to electromagnetic field in rat lung and liver tissues. Results of a study by A. K. Baltaci et al showed that exposure to an electromagnetic field caused cellular damage in lung and liver tissues. This EMF exposure also led to a significant decrease in zinc levels in lung and liver tissues (50 Hz). Zinc supplementation inhibited the inflicted cellular damage. [xxxiv]
“A contributing factor to the ELF-EMF-induced oxidative stress may be zinc deficiency, as lipid peroxidation-induced in Sprague-Dawley rats by long term exposure to ELF-EMFs (50 Hz, 50 mG) can be ameliorated through systemic antioxidant zinc supplementation. “ [xxxv]
In corroboration, another study found zinc and vitamin E supplementation have preventative effects on oxidative stress induced by cellular phone radiation in brain tissues of rats and their fetuses. [xxxvi]
Zinc deficiency and testosterone
Dietary zinc restriction in normal young men was associated with a significant decrease in serum testosterone concentrations after 20 weeks of zinc restriction.
Zinc supplementation of marginally zinc-deficient normal elderly men for six months resulted in an increase in serum testosterone from 8.3 ± 6.3 to 16.0 ± 4.4 nmol/p (p = 0.02). “Zinc may play an important role in modulating serum testosterone levels in normal men.” [xxxvii] So, it doubled serum testosterone.
Androgen deficiency in adult male subjects with sickle cell anemia is correctable with zinc supplementation. [xxxviii]
Weight training in combination with zinc (6 weeks trial) supplementation improved testosterone and performance in athletes. [xxxix]
Regarding non-athletes, M. Kilic, 2007 found: “exercise can decrease thyroid hormones and testosterone in sedentary men; however, zinc supplementation prevents this decrease.” [xl]
In corroboration of the above findings, zinc supplementation ameliorates electromagnetic field-induced lipid peroxidation in rat brains. (50Hz). [xli]
In breeding bulls, zinc supplements (organic) increase blood serum testosterone and sperm quality. [xlii]
“Zinc not only balances immune responses but also has a proven direct antiviral action against some viruses. “
In a retrospective observational study with 249 COVlD-19 patients admitted to Hospital del Mar in Barcelona, Spain, they found serum zinc levels lower than 50 µg/dl at admission correlated with worse clinical presentation, longer time to reach stability and higher mortality. [xliii]
“Serum Zinc Content is a novel biomarker to predict COVlD-19 outcomes.”
In a prospective observational study in Chennai, India, patients with C0R0NAVIRUS disease 2019 had significantly low zinc levels in comparison to healthy controls. Zinc deficient patients developed more complications (70.4% vs 30.0%.). Further, zinc deficient COVlD-19 patients had a prolonged hospital stay. [xliv]
J. S. Al-Awfi (2020) stated one of the symptoms in COVlD-19 patients – loss of taste – has been associated with zinc deficiency. It is undetermined whether the virus is causative or those patients had zinc deficiency pre COVlD-19.
“Approximately 57.4% COVlD-19 patients have low zinc serum levels which may indicate an advantage to administer zinc therapeutically to those patients.” [xlv]
A study on athletes and sedentary subjects showed taking supplements for at least 1 month might increase testosterone in men and women. People who exercise regularly see a more significant increase in testosterone levels than those who are not active. [xlvi]
Note, high intensity (weight) training is more effective to naturally boost testosterone than endurance training.
Magnesium-rich foods include whole grains and dark leafy greens. Zinc is also contained in dark greens, flax seeds, and pumpkin seeds.
‘Magnesium may also protect against EMF radiation’. Magnesium is a key nutrient important for a variety of functions in the body, ‘including EMF radiation protection.’ That’s because magnesium is involved in over 300 chemical processes in the body, and acts as a cofactor for several antioxidant enzymes. “This suggests magnesium has the ability to help decrease oxidative stress due to sustained EMF exposure. Furthermore, magnesium acts as a natural calcium channel blocker.” [xlvii]
As alluded to above, exposure of mice to 50 Hz EMF caused abnormalities in sperm and a significant decrease in testosterone levels.
Administration of DPP before exposure improved the sperm count, viability, motility and testosterone level in experimental groups and prevented the sperm abnormality induced by EMF. [xlviii]
After serum testosterone levels in rats were decrease by EMF exposure, the effects were alleviated by administration of 5mg/kg Rosmarinic acid. Using Rosmarinic acid as food additive was suggested to be efficient for supporting people living in EMF environmental pollution. [xlix]
In maximal and submaximal physical short- and long-term exercise (800-m running, climbing, 36-km cross-country skiing), it turned out that in highly endurance-trained subjects, there was an increase and in less well-trained subjects a decrease of serum testosterone for equal distances and intensities of exercise. [l]
So, get well trained on a healthy level, and again, high Intensity strength training has a more beneficial effect on testosterone than endurance training.
As we have seen, mobile EMF can cause not only deficiency in gonadal hormones, but can be accompanied with a decrease of zinc levels in various organs. [li]
Secure optimal intake of the following nutrients to correct possible deficiencies: Magnesium, Selenium, Zinc, Vitamin C, D and E. Ideally, this is achieved by natural organic foods. Alternatively, high quality supplements can be used, it is important to make sure to not surpass the Upper Limit (UL) values for each mineral or vitamin.
As an example, for magnesium, the Upper Limit is the same as the daily value or recommended daily intake, so in theory, you should get it just right. For higher doses in case of deficiencies or medical reasons, ask your doctor. For general health, make sure to get the daily amount of the essential 13 vitamins and 10 minerals, as are available in all-in-one combined supplements.
|Nutrient||The Daily Value, as in food labels; it is mostly the same as the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA)||UL (Tolerable Upper Intake Levels, USA) for food and suppl. combined.||Safe multiple UL/ Daily Value|
|Zinc||15 mg||40 mg||2.6x|
|Magnesium||400 mg||350 mg/400 mg (SUL)||1x|
|Selenium||70 mcg||400 mcg||5.7x|
|Vitamin C||60 mg||2000 mg||33x|
|Vitamin D||10 mcg (400 IU)||100 mcg||10x|
|Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)||20 (30 IU) mg||1000 mg||50x|
Table 1: The Daily Value is what is on food labels; it is mostly the same as the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) USA.
UL = Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UUSA); Save Multible UL/Daily Value = (an adult can take this many times the Daily Value without exceeding the UL; for instance: an adult should not take more than 5.7 times the recommended daily amount of selenium; Data and complete table by C. Alan Titchenal, PhD, CNS. Originally published in: NASM Certified Personal Trainer Course Manual, 2004, pp. 632-633; Copyright ©: National Academy of Sports Medicine – http://www.nasm.org http://www.nutritionatc.hawaii.edu/UL.htm
Table 1 compares the typical levels of US recommended daily nutrient intake to the United States Tolerable Upper Intake Levels (UL). The Daily Value amounts, that are currently used as reference values on food and supplement labels, are similar to the RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) values, but differ in some cases. UL values are the amounts that are considered to be the maximum safe level of intake from food and supplements combined.
Vitamin D: “The type of vitamin D [D2 or D3] you get is less important than getting the right dose and making sure your levels are in the right range to avoid deficiency. Most experts recommend 600 to 800 IUs of vitamin D per day. (The amount of vitamin D in foods and supplements is usually given in terms of International Units, or IUs.)” [lii]
1.2. Steps to reduce EDC exposure
Here is a very short overview of the easiest and cheapest ways to reduce your EDC intake from everyday sources.
EDCs are everywhere. You can’t avoid them altogether. But the most prominent sources are from things we willingly but into our body. Remember, powerful and well-informed people live on the same planet and in the same city as you. They breathe the same air and use the same tab water (although, they probably don’t drink it unfiltered).
Here is a short summery of those precautions which are easiest and free to implement:
– no excessive alcohol consumption. Heavy drinking is usually considered more than 15 drinks a week for men or more than eight drinks a week for women. [liii]
– don’t put plastic containers in the microwave (don’t eat microwaved food in the first place. It kills rats and cats fast,[liv] it will probably kill you in time).
– eat as little as possible from plastic containers or plastic food packaging.
– eat as much organic as you can afford.
– cook fresh food, with natural ingredients. No junk food. If there is a commercial for the thing you are eating, it probably contains EDCs and other harmful chemicals.
– Avoid soy products and MSG (monosodium glutamate).
– use no pesticides or as little as possible in your garden, (esp. atrazine or roundup).
– cook on cast iron pans instead of Teflon (non-stick) pans.
– find EDC-free and aluminum-free sun screen, or avoid sunscreen and excessive sun exposure, if possible, but get moderate sun, of course.
– get informed about substitutes for pharmaceutical drugs with endocrine disrupting effects. The list is on p. 49.
1.3. Steps to reduce wireless/ EMF exposure
The same here: You can’t avoid wireless/ EMF exposure, if you don’t want to live in a Russian monastery at the end of the world (Oh wait, they have wireless internet too, now: ‘Russian monastery goes global with wireless, 2015’). [lv]
Again, well-informed and well-connected people live among us, too, possibly in the apartment next to you. The main exposure probably comes from your own devices. Twice the distance = 1/4 of the radiation exposure; four times the distance =1/16 of the radiation. (Distance and the Inverse Square Law). [lvi]
The main Swiss phone company Swisscom had announced in 2019, that 5G antennas will emit a radiation cone of under 15° directly onto the individual phone and the user, this is in theory good to prevent the rest of the surroundings being radiated unnecessarily, but it also means the radiation cone follows your phone and aims at it. Wireless radiation in populated areas can’t be avoided altogether, but you can avoid dosing yourself unnecessarily with Smart TVs, wireless routers, your phone, tablet, microwave ovens, etc.
“Smart TVs constantly send signals to connect to the Wi-Fi router. As it continues to search for the available router, it emits radio frequency (RF) signals. The TV will constantly transmit these signals since Wi-Fi is a built-in feature and you can’t switch it off.” LCD, LED and Plasma TVs emit EMF radiation and UV radiation from all directions to a distance of up to 12 feet. [lvii] Children are more susceptible.
Let’s go through a few things you can do to prevent unnecessary EMF exposure. Starting with remedies that are free and easy to implement, moving down to more advanced and then to costly ones.
– First, get your cellphone away from your crouch and your brain. (Men and women). This is easy enough, you can do it right now while you‘re reading this, even though caring it in your back pocket or in a backpack is not safe but it is much better (For men, protect the hypothalamic-pituitary-testes regulatory axis that controls testosterone production).
– even better, keep your phone away from your body as much as possible, especially from your crotch, your brain, and even from your kidneys (middle back), where the adrenal glands are, which also produce small amounts of testosterone.
– if you put your phone on airplane mode, it will keep connecting to the net and might keep emitting EMFs all the same.
– use the phone on speaker mode.
– If you use headphones, get airtubes – anti-radiation- earphones, which have the wires and the speakers a few inches away from your ear and transmit the sound by air tubes to the ear piece (5 + USD).
– stay a few feet or as far as conveniently possible away from your internet router and the flat screen TV, wi-fi connecting devices like printers etc.
– Set your screens to Night Shift to reduce blue light permanently, if you have no ambitions in computer graphics. Your iPhone, iPad, MacBook and Windows 10 devices have a feature called Night Shift for changing the color temperature of the screen. Many Android devices also offer a built-in ‘Blue Light’ or ‘Night Light’ feature and a variety of third-party utility apps get the job done, too.
– turn off wi-fi, connect your laptop with an ethernet cable. (for a MacBook and most thin laptops you need an ethernet adapter, c. 30 USD).
– if you turn off the Wi-Fi button of your router, it keeps emitting EMFs anyways, you can test this by putting it in a Faraday cage or wrap it in a metal mesh, it will build up a strong static field around itself and start crackling immediately. Keep it in another room or on the other side of your room.
– In the same way, your laptop might keep emitting EMFs after you turn off the airport or wireless network.
– So, for a more advanced measure, you can remove the wireless transmitter from your laptop. Disclaimer: you might lose your warranty for the device! Plus, I cannot assure you for all types of laptops that your internet connection will still work smoothly. But I have successfully disconnected and removed the Wi-Fi AirPort Blue Tooth Card (according to instructions for replacing the card and insolated the ends of internal antenna cables with heat resistant tape) on two generations of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro; they run without problems, including fast internet connection. The procedure takes 30 minutes.
– Kindly enquire where your roommates, on-floor neighbors have their routers or emitting devices.
– You can’t tell them what to do, it is perfectly legal to run as many routers and computers as they like, you can however adapt your own settings, don’t place your bed on the other side of a wall behind the main router.
– And then depending on your budget and situation, you can move to the country side, away from high voltage power lines, 5 g towers and close next-door neighbors. Or even have an electronics-free bedroom.
For the next generation:
As we have seen, the crucial time for a human’s balance of sex hormones throughout life is in pregnancy, more specifically the 8th– 12th week of gestation. The best thing to do for the happiness and well-being for the future life of a boy or girl, is to let them develop in the womb without toxins, without endocrine disrupting chemicals and radiation.
-No smoking or drinking or junk food for the future father three months before conception. The same for the mother lasting throughout pregnancy, of course. And what’s with these smoker couples where she quits and he keeps on smoking, anyways?
– Then, for the future mother, all of the above, but strictly, no compromises, no phone near the belly, no microwave.
That is the best you can do for your child, you can forget putting aside money for a college education or extra expensive health care, if a child develops to its full potential, it will need neither. (Savings will be devalued anyways in the Great Reset in the coming years).
Sane, healthy and competent men and women will be highly sought after for the rebuilding of civilization.
