The birth rate in Wisconsin has now dropped for the 6th straight year. The Wisconsin state Department of Health Services reported Monday that there were only 66,566 live births in 2013, compared to 67,153 in 2012, within the Badger state. That is a decrease of 663 childbirths in one year. Abortion is also down in Wisconsin. According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services abortions have also been on a decline over the last 5 years and even the rate/ratio numbers have dropped.

Another contributor could be vaccines. The Gardasil Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine has a infertility case cited against it here in Wisconsin.The federal court in Washington, D.C. still has not come to a verdict on whether the Gardasil Vaccine caused Madelyne Meylor and Olivia Meylor’s ovaries to stop producing eggs a year later, says the Wisconsin State Journal.
The suspected ingredient in vaccines that maybe causing infertility is Polysorbate 80.
Polysorbate 80, also known as Tween80, is a detergent (surfactant) used to deliver certain drugs or chemical agents beyond the blood-brain barrier and has been shown to cause infertility in mice in a medical study done by the Institute of Preventive and Clinical Medicine in Limbová, Bratislava.
The flu vaccine for the US market made by GlaxoSmithKline, called Fluarix, contains polysorbate 80, as does Novartis-Agriflu. The HPV vaccine, Gardasil, and a number of other childhood vaccines also contain polysorbate 80. Polysorbate 80 is in the Fluarix swine flu vaccine manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline according to the CDC document located here. On the World Intellectual Property Organization, a patent application for a “fertility impairing vaccine?”. The University of Georgia Research Foundation is listed as the patent applicant. In the description section of the patent application, Tween 80 (Polysorbate 80) is listed as a preferred ingredient:
“In a preferred embodiment the vaccine comprises oil, preferably a biodegradable oil such as squalene oil, in an amount of about 2.5% to about 15%, preferably about 8% to about 12%. In preparing the vaccine it is advantageous to combine a concentrated oily adjuvant composition with an aqueous solution of the antigen, pZP glycoprotein. Typically, the vaccine is prepared using an adjuvant concentrate which contains lecithin (about 5% to about 15 % wt/vol, preferably about 12% wt/vol) and STDCM (preferably about 25 mg/mL to about 50 mg/mL) in squalene oil. The term % wt/vol means grams per 100 mL of liquid. The aqueous solution containing the isolated pZP glycoprotein is typically a phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) solution, and additionally preferably contains Tween 80 (about 0.2% vol/vol to about 0.8% vol/vol, preferably about 0.4% vol/vol).
