Study Finds Your Favorite Fast-Food Might Harm Your Fertility Due to Contraceptive Drugs — When Will FDA Ensure Clean Water For All?

Caroline Wharton - 07 Nov 2023

If you’re thinking about getting a fast-food fix today, you might want to think again. A new study examining more than 20 of our country’s most popular fast-food chains has come to a startling revelation: contraceptives and other harmful animal antibiotics were found to be present in the majority of them. As the abortion industry plays fast and loose with the distribution of Chemical Abortion Pills, we have to wonder if we’re consuming those, as well. Here’s what you need to know: 

The organization Moms Across America recently commissioned extensive testing on 21 of the country’s most popular fast-food brands, looking for veterinary drugs and hormones, glyphosate and pesticides, heavy metals, phthalates, PFAS, minerals, vitamins, and calories. And if you enjoy a quick burger, taco, or coffee on the road every once in a while, you won’t like the report that’s been released with current findings. It’s not too appetizing.  

While none of the 21 tested fast-food meals met the recommended daily requirements for calcium, potassium, manganese, copper, zinc, and iron (news which may or may not surprise you), some of the top ten fast food meals did even worse, including residue from three veterinary drugs which can be very dangerous for humans.  

The drug Monensin, which can be induce anorexia, diarrhea, dullness, weakness, ataxia, dyspnea, prostration, and even death in animals, was found in significant levels in the Beef Supreme Taco from Taco Bell; the Breakfast Sandwich from Dunkin Donuts; the Cheeseburger from Wendy’s; the Pepperoni Cheese Pizza with extra pepperoni from Domino’s; the Quarter Pounder from Burger King; and the Big Mac from McDonalds.  

Narasin, having some of the same effects while also including dyspnea, depression, necrosis, was found in the meal from Dunkin Donuts, Wendy’s, and Domino’s, as well as the Bacon Egg and Cheddar Sandwich from Starbucks.  

Nicarbazin remains one of the most troubling, however, as Americans across the country experience new lows in birth and fertility rates. This drug can cause infertility in chickens, geese, and pigeons. Moms Across America states in their report that it “occasionally causes toxic effects in laying hens, reduced hatchability, and interruption of egg-laying,” beyond increasing sensitivity to heat, cell degeneration, and depression. This toxin was found in only one of the fast-food chains: Chick-Fil-A.  

Non-offenders in the top ten included Chipotle’s Carnitas Bowl with everything and the Cold Cut Combo from Subway. To check out the entirety of the testing data, click HERE.  

This research is enough to make many of us think twice about consuming fast-food as it’s easy enough to avoid stopping at one of these roadside joints — but what about avoiding our own water source? 

In a similar vein of concern, Students for Life of America (SFLA) has flagged the potential harm of Chemical Abortion Pills in our waterways and food in general. As these drugs are now being used for more than 50% of all abortions in the United States, it is highly concerning that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not conducted an environmental study regarding the potential impact that mifepristone (the first drug in the two-pill regimen) could have on our nation’s wastewater. Instead, the only “research” scantily done was by the abortion industry — and why would we ever think they’d tattle on themselves?  

In a Washington Times op-ed by SFLA President Kristan Hawkins entitled “What We Don’t Know About Abortion Can Hurt Us,” she wrote, “Trusting the abortion data self-servingly offered up by the abortion industry is like trusting the tobacco industry to be the sole provider of all information on the harms of cigarette smoking.”  

That’s why SFLA launched our What’s In The Water? Campaign, calling on our government to stop their reckless approval of mifepristone before doing due diligence and investigating this potential problem. Hawkins stated:  

“Cemeteries in our sewer systems are ignored as Chemical Abortion Pill use has skyrocketed. Tainted blood, tissue, and human remains have been flushed away, without any hard look at what happens next, or what happens to us and the environment. We’re calling on an environmentally concerned Congress and state legislators to support Red Bag Medical Waste disposal of tainted human remains, to protect aquatic life, endangered species, and our food supply from the deadly consequences of Chemical Abortion Pills, a clinical abortion agent and potential endocrine disruptor that even the National Institutes of Health notes can impact more than just women.”

Regardless of your views, everyone wants clean water, and ignoring a potential problem doesn’t make it go away. With these new findings on fast-foods, the brands will work to ensure better quality — now let’s do Chemical Abortion Pills and make sure our water is safe.
