Tuesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:

‘Remarkable’ Declines in Fertility, Sperm Counts Worldwide Linked to Industrial Chemicals: Fertility rates are declining globally, with environmental toxins like pesticides and air pollution playing a significant role, as reported in a study published in Human Reproduction Update. This decline in both male and female reproductive health is particularly evident in industrialized regions. The global fertility rate is expected to fall below replacement levels in 93% of countries by 2100. The study, authored by researchers from various countries, reviewed multiple studies and emphasized the need for stronger public policy, research, and medical access regarding fertility. The International Federation of Fertility Societies launched a campaign to make fertility care more accessible and to reduce exposure to harmful chemicals. The paper highlights that infertility affects a large number of people globally, with environmental pollutants like endocrine-disrupting chemicals being a major concern. Data suggests a significant decline in sperm count since 1973 and links proximity to major roadways with reduced reproductive potential. The paper calls for policies addressing both current and future chemical risks to reproductive health and notes that factors like education levels, discrimination against women, and delayed childbearing also contribute to lower fertility rates. The global population decline due to reduced fertility rates is expected to have major societal and economic implications.

Special Guest Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi

Question of The Day!

Hi Guys,
Not long ago I believe I heard R.S.B. say that he is no longer a “fan” of the E.M.F products such as the QI ME-when I checked the website it said that EMF protection no longer exist. Is there any “GOOD” coming from these devices or did I just waste my money?
Thank you Bill

Welcome back to the “Homeopathic Hits” segment of The Robert Scott Bell Show.
In this episode, we’re focusing on Dulcamara, a homeopathic remedy often used for conditions that worsen with damp, cold weather, such as joint pains, respiratory issues, and skin eruptions.
Let’s explore the various applications of Dulcamara, especially in these health scenarios.

Hour 2

Op-ed: What we know about toxic chemicals and children’s mental health: There is growing evidence linking exposure to environmental chemicals, such as lead and endocrine disruptors, to increased mental health symptoms in children, including anxiety and depression. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated youth mental health challenges, with a significant rise in mental health emergency visits and suicidal ideation among high school students. Children are exposed to numerous chemicals from various sources, and these exposures can disrupt brain development processes related to mood and emotion regulation. The review emphasizes the need for more research to identify the main chemical culprits and understand the risk differences based on race, sex, and economic status. It also highlights the importance of considering both chemical and non-chemical exposures in research to understand cumulative risks and potential protective factors. The review calls for further studies using brain imaging technology and animal studies to support current evidence and theories on how environmental chemicals impact children’s mental health.

Special Guest Murray Sabrin

Murray Sabrin arrived in America from West Germany at the age of two with his parents and older brother on August 6, 1949. His parents were the only members of their respective families to survive the Holocaust in Poland.  The Sabrin family moved from the Lower East Side of Manhattan to the Bronx in 1953, where Murray attended public schools. In 1968 he married Florence, and in 1977 they moved to New Jersey, where they have lived until 2021 when they retired to Florida.

Sabrin became a U.S. citizen in 1959 at age 12 and graduated from the Bronx High School of Science in 1964. He has a B.A. in history, geography and social studies education from Hunter College, an M.A. in social studies education from Lehman College and a Ph.D. in economic geography from Rutgers University. Sabrin is only two individuals who had the honor of having the late Austrian School economist, historian, and philosopher Murray N. Rothbard serve as a member of his dissertation committee.  His dissertation, “The Spatial Incidence of Inflation in the United States 1967-1971:  An Economic-Geographic Perspective,” was reviewed by a University of Chicago professor who stated, “You are to be congratulated on the theoretical and critical depth of your thesis.”

After working as a staff economist, investment analyst, and real estate sales associate, Dr. Sabrin joined the faculty of the Anisfield school of Business of Ramapo College of New Jersey in 1985 and retired on July 1, 2020 as Professor of Finance.  Over his career he taught several courses including Corporate Finance, Securities & Investments and Financial History of the United States.  On January 25th 2021, the Board of Trustees awarded Dr. Sabrin Emeritus status for his scholarship and professional contributions during his 35 year career.

In 2007 Murray and his wife made a gift to Ramapo College to establish the Sabrin Center for Free Enterprise in the Anisfield School of Business (www.ramapo.edu/sabrincenter), and made a contribution in 2021 to establish the Sabrin Center resource room in the new Peter F. Mercer Learning Commons. Dr. Sabrin is considered a “public intellectual” for writing essays about the economy for The Record, Star Ledger, Trenton Times, and the Asbury Park Press. His essays have also appeared in Commerce Magazine, Mid-Atlantic Journal of Business, and Privatization Review among other scholarly and popular publications. In his book, Universal Medical Care: From Conception to End-of-Life: The Case for a Single Payer System, Sabrin’s vision for medical care is the individual or family being the single payer to restore the doctor-patient relationship.  Sabrin is the author of Tax Free 2000:  The Rebirth of American Liberty, a blueprint on how to create a tax-free America in the 21st century, and Why the Federal Reserve Sucks:  It Causes, Inflation, Recessions, Bubbles and Enriches the One Percent, which is available on Amazon. Sabrin’s most recent books are Navigating the Boom-Bust Cycle and The Finance of Healthcare, both published by Business Experts Press.  His memoir, From Immigrant to Public Intellectual: An American Story, was published late 2022.  His books are profiled at the CONK bookstore, https://conk.com/bookstore/.


Question of The Day!

Hi Robert,
This is with reference to the interesting discussion you had with Dr Michael Nehls in the RSB Show on 15-Jan-24. Aa an expert in homeopathy, at 1:37:40 you eloquently highlighted the principles of the ‘Law of the minimum doses’ used in homeopathy. But the response from Dr Nehls was a bit disconcerting to me. He called the law of the minimum used in homeopathy as “delusion by certain factors”. Theoretically he seems to be right. You cannot keep on diluting and expect the potency to increase indefinitely. I would like to know what you have to say on the matter.

How do we register to The Family Reunion 2024?

FDA review supports reclassifying marijuana as less risky drug: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has concluded that marijuana has a lower potential for abuse compared to other drugs in the same restriction category and should be reclassified as a less dangerous drug. Currently classified as a Schedule I controlled substance alongside heroin and LSD, the FDA’s review supports moving marijuana to Schedule III, which includes substances like ketamine and Tylenol with codeine. This recommendation is based on marijuana’s lower abuse potential, accepted medical use, and low or moderate risk of physical dependence. The National Institute on Drug Abuse supports this recommendation. The reclassification could facilitate more research, ease banking for cannabis businesses, and exempt them from certain tax restrictions. The final decision on reclassification lies with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), which will include a period of public comment.
