Is a blueprint being carried out in Japan to reduce its population, one whose success could very easily be implemented in America if a similar agenda continued to creep forward?
On June 13, 2008 The New York Times reported on the passage of an anti-fat law in Japan in which both men and women between the ages of 40 and 74 will be required to have their waistlines measured in an attempt to end obesity. Those found to be overweight will be given three months of “dieting guidance,” and after six months they will receive “further re-education.”
In America, we have a healthcare reform plan yet to be fully implemented that could also require annual checkups to control weight.
We often hear that being overweight is a disease and a drain on healthcare funds. It could also be taken to a different level involving young people. If children are consistently overweight, could that be construed as child abuse, resulting in children being taken into government custody?
Increasingly, people are eating foods that contain added hormones to increase production. Since the early 1990s, cows have been given recombinant bovine growth hormone—a Monsanto corporation innovation— to boost milk yields. Synthetic estrogen given to both cows and chickens increases the size of the animals and would clearly affect all resulting food products that humans consume.
On July 30, 2007 The Kansas City Star reported on “hormone fluctuation” causing males to experience gynecomastia, or enlarged breasts. As a result, some of these men have undergone breast reduction surgery.
Considering the widespread use of genetically modified crops, it stands to reason that such things would affect the human body and even genetic structure. On Oct. 27, 2005 the Russian Pravda news website reported on a study in which rats exclusively given genetically modified foods showed a severe and pronounced weakness in their offspring resulting in a birth mortality rate of more than 55 percent. It seriously affected the behavior of the rats themselves, leading the Pravda reporter to conclude that genetically modified foods are “in fact a delayed-action biological weapon.”
Water would appear to be a factor, as well. In 2006, the University of Colorado conducted a study to discover why fish were spontaneously changing gender. Studies have shown that estrogen taken in by women who use birth control is not properly filtered from wastewater during treatment of raw sewage, and is subsequently released with high hormonal levels back into the water supply.
In 2009, CNN reported that young Japanese men are now commonly referred to as “herbivores” as they seem “not interested in flesh,” meaning they evidently are not interested in sexual relationships with women, preferring a more platonic situation. This mentality has resulted in lower birth rates and even translated into less economic production as the aggressive business practices of previous generations have been replaced by a much more passive outlook.
In Japan, masculinity is on the wane, being replaced by a more feminized male. America has experienced something similar. The commonly used term “metrosexual” was coined in 1994 to describe a straight male who displays an almost stereotypically homosexual obsession with looks, grooming and clothing. The practice of men getting pedicures and their eyebrows waxed has become more common over the last few years.
While these trends could be attributed to hormone overload, perhaps social engineering programs encouraging men to be more in touch with their “sensitive” side, communicated through the media and education systems, are a contributing factor.
Other factors include long-standing internationalist concerns with planetary overcrowding, and a perceived need to force the entire population into conforming with health regulations for “the greater good.” All these factors are on display in Japan, resulting in an easily palatable form of population control. Like other successful products sent to the United States by the Far East, it’s not unreasonable to expect that similar programs have already been exported to America.
