# 118 The Daily Deadly Diet and You!

Interesterified Soybean oil and Aspartame.
Aspartame I've already posted on, about it's detrimental health effects.The new and deadly threat, Interesterified oils, is a new hazard.Posted here are parts of various articles on these two products.
The new fat that's worse than trans fat Better Nutrition, April, 2007 by Jack Challem Just about everyone knows that trans fats are bad news when it comes to boosting cholesterol and heart disease risk. But their replacement--known as interesterified fats--are even more dangerous, according to a study in the January 2007 journal Nutrition & Metabolism

INTERESTERIFIED FAT -when ‘No Trans Fat’ is worse Interest + terrified = interesterified fat?
Barely have consumers - and health authorities - woken up to the dangers of trans fats when we are now told of a new, possibly greater threat.
The new substance to watch out for is interesterified fat.
Huh? What's this?
First, let me tell you how I remember the spelling of this word - combine together “interest” and “terrified” but spell “terrified” with only one “r”. Actually, it is made up of the words “inter” and the chemical term “esterified”, meaning “formed into ester”.
Basically, it is an attempt by food scientists to produce oils with “no trans fats”.
What they do is hydrogenate the oils fully. The oils become fully saturated and there are no trans fats left. But fully hydrogenated oil is hard and inedible. So the smart aleck scientists mix it with liquid oils and put it through other chemical processes to create a semi-solid grease like margarine and vegetable shortening.

Urgent Research Update from The Douglass Report
"Beyond a shadow of a doubt, aspartame triggers brain tumors…"--
Dr. M. Adrian Gross, former senior FDA toxicologist
The Sweetest Scandal in the History of American Health
(BALTIMORE, JULY 2007) The shocking truth of how a political "favor" got the government to approve this poison -- and why aspartame is making us sicker and fatter than good old sugar ever could!
Ever wonder what our former Secretary of Defense did before he got into politics? Well years ago, he was the fearless leader of a company called GD Searle Corp. that developed a "miracle sweetener" called aspartame. (Yes, the very same stuff contained in those little blue packets.)
For years, this company tried in vain to get aspartame approved. But no one wanted to go near the stuff! The FDA refused to approve it for 16 years. In fact, according to a report I recently uncovered, the late Dr. M. Adrian Gross, a former senior FDA toxicologist, stated in his testimony before Congress:
"Beyond a shadow of a doubt, aspartame triggers brain tumors"and, "therefore, by allowing aspartame to be placed on the market the FDA has violated the Delaney Amendment, which forbids putting anything in food that is know to cause cancer...And if the FDA itself elects to violates its own the law, who is left to protect the health of the public?"
But wait, it gets worse...
In the early '80s, "Rummy the Magnificent" moved into the political arena. And one of the first moves he made was to appoint a new FDA commissioner. And guess what he did? In 1981, the new appointee approved aspartame for the good old boys back at GD Searle...despite the clinically proven dangers.
Before long, aspartame was everywhere, from soda to salad dressing!
Now let's look at what it's "contributed" to America's health...
92 reasons why aspartame makes sugar look like a "good guy"...
For starters, medical authorities estimate that aspartame has brought more complaints to the FDA than any other additive. In fact, it's responsible for as many as 75 percent of such complaints to that agency. And, after receiving some 10,000 consumer complaints, the FDA compiled a list of 92 symptoms linked to aspartame -- including death.
Headaches, memory loss, seizures, vision loss, coma, and cancer. It also appears to worsen or mimic the symptoms of such conditions as fibromyalgia, MS, lupus, ADD, diabetes, Alzheimer's, chronic fatigue, and depression...
Why so many? It could be because aspartame attacks your body at the cellular level so it can negate all kinds of medications Americans take, including antidepressants, Coumadin, cardiac drugs, hormones, insulin, vaccines, and many others.
It is a deadly neurotoxic drug masquerading as a harmless additive.
And to add insult to injury...
Aspartame could makes you hungrier and fatter!
One medical investigator, Dr. H. J. Roberts, even concludes that aspartame has caused our obesity epidemic. He gives evidence that this "guilt-free" sweetener secretly makes you crave carbohydrates which, of course, make you gain weight.
How? Possibly it may trigger or over stimulate the stomach's production of ghrelin, also known as the "hunger hormone." If this hypothesis turns out to be correct, it will help to explain why all those "diet" sodas have never been much help in weight reduction. (In fact, just the opposite!)
So why is the media mum?
Simple. Because professional organizations and their publications have all been bought off.
By who? The food giants. They all use this inexpensive impostor in huge quantities for their colas, desserts, candies, and other junk foods. And they're the ones who have financed a raft of studies "proving" the safety of aspartame.
So what's safe and actually TASTES GOOD?
I can hear you asking: "Ok, so what can I sprinkle into my coffee?"
Let's run through the usual suspects then I'll tell you what I've been using...
SUGAR: A spoonful once in a while is fine, but in time, too much sugar can lead to diabetes, which will lead to heart disease, renal disease, peripheral vascular disease, diabetic retinitis (blindness), diabetic peripheral neuropathy and the list goes on and on. (Even so, next to aspartame, sugar looks almost attractive!)
SUCRALOSE: A very dangerous new chemical -- because in order to make sucralose, chlorine is added to sugar! Ever spilled chlorine bleach on your skin? No wonder that research by the Sucralose Toxicity Information Center showed that years of sucralose use can lead to serious compromise of the immune system and neurological disorders.
SACCHARINE: Yuck. Despite those famous animal studies, I actually don't count saccharine as much of a cancer threat to humans. But face it, saccharine tastes like the chemical experiment it is. Enough said.
STEVIA: Yes, it's natural. Yes, it's safe. But no, it tastes nothing like sugar. Okay for some, but not in my coffee!
XYLITOL: Almost gets a perfect score. Natural, tastes like sugar, good for your teeth, doesn't spike blood sugar. On the down side, it gives some folks the trots.
You've probably never heard of it. It's called erythritol. And here's the best news: erythritol is natural, virtually calorie-free, tastes like sugar, doesn't affect blood sugar or insulin levels, reduces dental plaque -- and unlike xylitol, has no laxative side-effects. Available as Smart Sweet, it gets the Dr. Douglass nod!
The food giants would certainly like to keep these discoveries hush-hush. But now that you know the facts, you can kiss those killer awful blueblue packets good-bye forever. And satisfy that sweet tooth with a yummy, natural, safe alternative.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING as an undeniable medical fact!
As you’ll see below, medicine just doesn’t work that way. You’re not a number, you’re a human being. The most unpredictable thing in creation...
But the powers that be-the puffed-up politicos, greedy mega-corporations and profit-obsessed pharmaceutical companies won’t have you believe it for a second. They want you to be like a dog on a leash. The minute the dog starts to think for themselves and do some exploring, the leash gets jerked back. Pretty soon, the dog stops exploring, content to go where his leader lets him.
That’s why I’m writing to you today. When it comes to your health, the leash the big shots want you on is a short one, indeed! They’re obscuring the real facts, covering up the truth so they can rob you blind. But it doesn’t have to be that way… By eating REAL FOOD, taking a few (cheap!) supplements that make you STRONGER, and doing some shockingly PLEASURABLE things that “everyone knows” can’t be healthy!
First we’ll throw out the confusing information purveyed by the “diet Nazis.” Here’s what I mean:
One of the most-maligned foods on the planet is the All-American hot dog. But that doesn’t mean they deserve the bad rap they’ve been given.
And as it turns out, sodium nitrate (the chemical used to preserve and color hot dogs and other meats) may have a beneficial effect on all the body’s organs-heart, brain, lungs, everywhere the blood flows. Sodium nitrate seems to have the ability to guard your cells against hypoxia (lack of oxygen).
Yet, despite these findings, people still have it in for the delicious dogs. Although the Associated Press reported the findings, it still warned “it doesn’t mean artery-clogging hot dogs are healthy.”
The point I’m trying to make is that it steams me to no end when the media makes sweeping pronouncements about nutrition, usually gleaned by so-called experts like the EPA or the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The truth is, good health is a matter of common sense and having a healthy dose of cynicism about what the “authorities” have to say about what’s good for you--and what’s not.
If you’re like me, you have little tolerance for crap in any area of your life. So why should that be any different when it comes to your health? Just look at my non-nonsense way to:
It’s really easy. Starting tomorrow, drink no tap water. Not because of industrial pollution, but because of chemicals that “health authorities” are adding to your water. For example...
People who warned against FLUORIDATION used to be ridiculed, but guess what? In Scandinavia, in fact all of Europe, and nearly every other medically advanced nation, they have now banned the practice.
Know why? Because fluoride makes your body absorb extra aluminum. And where does the aluminum go? Your brain. And what metal shows up alarmingly in the brains of Alzheimer’s victims? You guessed it. (Hmm...Maybe our health authorities have been drinking too much water?)
INCREDIBLY FRIGHTENING CANCER MYTHS that you can stop worrying about right now
If you don’t want cancer, don’t believe anyone who tells you:
“ELECTRIC BLANKETS GIVE YOU CANCER.” Know how this myth got canonized? Instead of commissioning new research, a public health authority put the question to a VOTE. (NEWS FLASH: you can’t change the laws of nature by voting.) Yet even these geniuses freely admit that more than 500 existing studies show ZERO compelling evidence of electric fields causing cancer. Rest easy and while you’re at it, enjoy your heating pad again.
“HIGH FAT DIETS CAUSE BREAST CANCER.” Fat phobia may be the height of fashion, but it’s JUNK MEDICINE. Researchers studied 88,795 women over the course of 14 years, and what did they find? Not one sign that high-fat diets promote breast cancer. And not one hint that low-fat diets protect you.
“DDT CAUSES CANCER.” Says WHO? Check the record. Back in the 1970s, the Environmental Protection Agency examiner summed up 9,000 pages of research by flatly declaring, “DDT is not a carcinogenic hazard to man.” He also emphasized that it doesn’t harm fish, birds or other wildlife. Despite this open-and-shut case, his boss, EPA head William Ruckleshaus went ahead and banned DDT. Aides later said he never read even one page of the studies. He had helped to hatch the DDT scare and couldn’t bring himself to admit he was wrong. The worldwide witch-hunt against DDT hasn’t saved one peregrine falcon. But it has unquestionably murdered tens of millions of human children in tropical nations, who continue to die from malaria, Dengue fever, yellow fever and other mosquito-borne plagues.
And speaking of witch hunts, there are other ways the powers that be are trying to control your health. I’ve made it my mission to help you…
Stay SAFE by STAYING OUT of the vicious drug cycle designed to keep you sick!!
This one is sure to get you hot under the collar. I know it had that effect on me!
Recently, Merck & Co. withdrew Vioxx, its COX-2 arthritis drug, from the market after a study found it doubled the risk of heart attack and stroke. Since then, the company has put out at least four press releases defending the safety of other COX-2 inhibitors.
In case you’re curious, it wasn’t caring doctors who wrote these press releases. No, you are being encouraged to continue taking a dangerous drug by marketers-professionals who are paid to “spin” any story, however controversial, so it comes out smelling like roses. This is science-by-press-release-and it stinks like yesterday’s tuna!
Remember, folks--if I say it, you can count on it. That’s why your subscription to The Douglass Report comes with my “Ultimate Guarantee”. If my advice doesn’t help, you won’t pay a cent, period. It’s that simple--no catch, no deadline, and no further obligation, EVER. Just a 100% refund, right away. It’s interesting to note that Pfizer’s Bextra is now recognized as a dangerous drug and Merck’s Vioxx is off the market for the same reason, but Pfizer’s other COX-2 drug, Celebrex is still being sold to trusting patients all over the world.
Need more convincing that Big Pharma is not your friend and is run by irresponsible lunatics? The arrogant president of Pfizer defended the COX-2 drugs and said in a television interview that, “there should not be a rush to judgment because of the findings.” From where I sit, the “rush to judgment” started with the introduction of these cardio-toxic drugs in the first place!
It truly boggles my mind. Here we are, supposedly the healthiest, wealthiest nation on the planet, and many state health departments continue to churn out a daily flood of lies, half-truths and old wives tales designed to scare us into submission!
Here’s another one I’m just itching to tell you about:
“Milk that’s not pasteurized is a health hazard”
Really? Let’s look at how this myth was spun and how it got poured down the throats of the American public:
If raw milk is so bad for us, how did the human race ever survive before pasteurization? After all, we’ve been milking cows and drinking down the creamy, nutrient-rich results for thousands of years--yet Louis Pasteur’s process (which was originally designed to prevent beer spoilage, mind you) has only been in widespread use for a little more than a century. So what gives?
The answer, of course, is that non-pasteurizedmilk isn’t hazardous at all. It’s just a lot tougher to regulate and make money from it.
Think about it: By legislating against the sale or distribution of raw milk, states force farmers to sell their milk (at a fraction of market value, by the way) to the big milk processors. This creates a “paper trail” on the milk, which can then be used as the basis for collecting tax revenue from those processors--and likely the farmers, too.
And how else could they get away with this kind of shameless money-grubbing except under the guise of a public health concern? It’s just one more example of how your healthy, natural dietary options are being sold down the river by a bunch of dollar-crazed bureaucrat shakedown artists.
The good news is that raw milk is healthierand better for you than pasteurized milk in stores. And it tastes better, too.
Long-time drinkers of vitamin-rich non-pasteurized milk cite increased resistance to colds and flu, weight loss, relief from arthritis pain, plus a whole lot more--and this is not to mention the fuller, truer flavor raw milk drinkers enjoy.
I hope you’re starting to see how the facts about good health-backed by centuries of common sense and doing what feels right--have been obscured all in the name of the almighty dollar.
I’m just barely scratching the surface here. I urge you to open your eyes to what’s really going on with health in this country. I’ll continue to shatter the myths about health that have been sold to you like so much snake oil. As a result…
You’ll work better with your doctor to find safe, effective treatments for whatever ails you. You’ll protect your family’s health by ignoring the health flim-flams that are making them sick. You’ll feel better and maybe even live longer when you take my health advice and finally do what feels right and makes sense. For example, I already told you that it wasn’t bird flu or mysterious airborne bacteria that we all had to worry about, but something much more insidious…
Want to banish HEART DISEASE, CANCER, ARTHRITIS PAIN and more? Then do this right now...
Take all that nagging health advice and TOSS IT IN THE TRASH!
(Summer, 2007) HE’S BEEN CALLED A MAVERICK by vested interests who fear him. But to hundreds of patients and thousands of readers, William Campbell Douglass II, M.D., has long been one of America’s most popular myth-busters, revealing the surprisingly inexpensive and easy road to real health.
Decades ago, when it was unfashionable, he started his crusade against drugs that weaken the immune system, surgery that’s worse than doing nothing-and punishing diets that cause the very conditions they claim to cure. Now his theories have won thousands of followers in the halls of science, but he’s not resting on his laurels. “The wonder,” says Dr. Douglass, “is that it took all these new studies to convince doctors of the very facts their patients knew all along.”
Patients are constantly being told, ‘YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOOD FOR YOU.’ What arrogance! Of course they do!
How else did our ancestors survive?
The fact is that most of us could improve our health immediately by ignoring half of the advice we receive. Real health is often simply a matter of doing what feels sensible.
Today, in dozens of new research studies, health authorities are quietly admitting that Dr. Douglass was right all along.But watch out, health establishment! Dr. Douglass is leading the charge again. He’s taking on all the most cherished new falsehoods that make today’s patients miserable...
JUST SAY NO TO THE HEALTH POLICE and feel your miseries fade away
AMERICANS ARE BEING FORCE-FED a diet of vegetables, water and fear. But they’ve got us worried sick about nothing. Just say no to all the unhealthy advice that’s making your life a misery. You’ll feel better instantly, live longer and enjoy all your extra years to the fullest.”
BE A GOOD PATIENT AND EAT YOUR CHOLESTEROL. For more than 20 years, I’ve reminded Americans that cholesterol is not a terrifying toxin, but a life-saving nutrient. Your own body makes it when your foods don’t provide it. And studies now show that if you’re cholesterol-starved, you will raise your risk of massive strokes.
EGG-LOVERS LIVE LONGER. Not only are eggs not guilty of causing heart disease, they’ve been proven to prevent it. That’s right, an enormous study of 800,000 people has shown that egg-eaters have a much lower rate of heart attacks and strokes than egg-avoiders.
THE RAW TRUTH. Go ahead and indulge in steak tartare, and enjoy raw eggs in your mayonnaise and Caesar salad. Raw and rare meat contain life-saving nutrients that overcooking destroys.
WANT TO LIVE LONG AND FEEL STRONG? Tell exercise fanatics to take a hike. To cite just one example, Marathon runners drop dead nearly 200 times more often than their lazier (and smarter!) peers. In your FREE BONUS GIFTS, I’ll show you how to triple your strength, with an exercise program so easy, even 90-year-olds can do it.
If TV promotes it and everyone knows it, YOU’VE GOT YOURSELF A MYTH
WANT TO TRACK DOWN A MEDICAL MYTH? It’s easy! Just follow the money. The more they spend on TV commercials and ads in popular magazines, the more you can be sure the “breakthrough” they’re selling is bogus. But profitable.
Over the course of my 30-plus year medical career, I’ve seen firsthand what works and what doesn’t work regarding both conventional and alternative medicine. And I never cease to be shocked and outraged at how government interference, political red tape and corporate profits can keep ordinary people from having access to the information they need to stay healthy. Information like this: DON’T SWALLOW THE SOY PLOY. Soy producers claim it slashes your cancer risk, cuts your heart disease risk and helps with menopause. But actual research says they’re wrong on all three counts. What soy will do is pump you full of estrogen-mimicking compounds, which can depress your thyroid and make you put on weight. It also contains an acid that blocks your absorption of calcium. (Can you say “osteoporosis”?)
IF THE LABEL SAYS “ENRICHED WITH IRON,” treat it like a poison. Commercials pound it into our heads that we all have “iron poor blood,” but 91% of older Americans are actually getting way too much iron. This is linked to heart disease, cancer and even diabetes. In your FREE BONUS GIFTS, you’ll learn how to remove excess iron from your system!
BREAD AND PASTA are very profitable products to sell. But “carb loading” doesn’t boost athletic performance. Fat and protein do.IT’S TIME TO INSPECT THE MEAT-HATERS and find out who their contributors are. Some of the world’s wealthiest carbohydrate producers-including Con-Agra and Quaker Oats-are “generously supporting” one of America’s best-known diet gurus. And what is his advice? “Eat only complex carbohydrates.” Wow, how surprising.
If a cure is safe, effective and cheap WATCH THEM MAKE IT DISAPPEAR
THIS DOLLAR-A-BOTTLE MIRACLE has been proven to cure drug-resistant pneumonia, clear up colds and flu in 24 hours-and heal many other viral and bacterial diseases as well. It’s called HYDROGEN PEROXIDE THERAPY. But it won’t make billions for any drug firm because the stuff is practically free. Let me take you behind the scenes, and show you the stunning scientific facts.
AT THE FAMED PASTEUR INSTITUTE in St. Petersburg, Russia, I worked alongside doctors who routinely healed patients of deadly infectious diseases without any antibiotics, using nothing more than the germ-killing power of ultraviolet light. Yet ironically, this life-saving therapy called photoluminescence was perfected here in America, back before World War II! After the discovery of penicillin, it fell out of widespread use. Today, of course, we need it more than ever. But the technology is in the public domain, so it won’t make big money for anyone and vested interests are trying to have it banned. Americans need to know the facts and they’re all in your FREE BONUS REPORTS.
Corruption is theREAL medical epidemic!
Corruption has become so endemic and intellectual integrity so compromised in pharmaceutical research that drug companies and their collaborators in government (and universities) can now get away with open fraud.
The Journal of the American Medical Association researched the connection between authors of clinical guidelines and the pharmaceutical industry. Over HALF received financial support from the pharmaceutical industry to conduct research. And 38% served as employees or consultants for a pharmaceutical company. Hmm…so how do you suppose they rated the drug?
This represents a MASSIVE CON, a criminal fraud perpetrated on you and me, and the American public, engineered behind closed doors by the fake food industry and the pharmaceutical conglomerates. Both have so much money to spread around Washington that they practically OWN Congress, the Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health. To heck with the public health and welfare--their goal is to get everyone hooked on prescription drugs and manufactured, plastic food.
The saddest fact of all is that the medical profession is falling for it, allowing itself to be manipulated into acting as an accessory to this crime. It’s terrible!
Health conspiracies are everywhere you look-on TV, in many mainstream newspapers and all over the Internet. Here’s another one that really gets my goat:
Attack of the Sun-Haters!
No matter how much evidence has surfaced exonerating the sun from its wrongful status in the mainstream as a carcinogen rivaling dioxin or red dye #2, some just won’t see the light.
According to a recent Reuters online article, vitamin supplements alone are all anyone needs for adequate vitamin D intake--and that sun exposure is nothing but harmful and a major cancer risk.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m a huge fan of vitamin supplementation, even for vitamin D. But of all the vitamins you can take every day, D is probably the least likely to absorb fully and properly into the blood from simple supplementation alone. You NEED sunlight to spur your body’s production of it.
If vitamin D is proven to promote health, yet it doesn’t effectively express itself in your body from diet and/or supplementation, then how’s it helping the people it’s helping?
The answer, of course, is sunlight exposure.
Like I’ve said, the assumptions we’ve been fed about our health are largely untrue. For example, most people think that women only need healthy estrogen levels to be healthy, but the truth is…
The heart-healthy hormone most women need is TESTOSTERONE
Forget what everyone told you about “male” and “female” hormones. As any first-year medical student should know, both women and men produce all the very same types of sex hormones.
It’s just the proportion that’s different. Healthy women produce more estrogen and make more testosterone...but all of us need some of each to stay healthy.
Testosterone, not estrogen, is the hormone that keeps your heart strong. If you’re a woman over 50, there’s a good chance your levels are too low (just as men over 50).
In your FREE BONUS GIFTS I’ll give you full details about the NATURAL HORMONE THERAPY that combines all the hormones a woman needs. And how to find a doctor with expertise in this neglected field.
Now what about men? Well, don’t let anyone tell you that “MEN HAVE TOO MUCH TESTOSTERONE.” Because...
What doctors don’t tell you about testosterone isn’t just stealing your potency. IT’S KILLINGMILLIONS OF MEN EVERY YEAR
Studies show that many American men over 40 actually suffer a dangerous testosterone deficiency. Yet doctors typically don’t even test for it, because they too are victims of JUNK MEDICINE:
EVERYONE THINKS that testosterone causes heart disease. Yet the research shows it’s a fabulous treatment and may even prevent strokes. EVERYONE FEARS that testosterone promotes prostate disease. Yet studies show that both benign swelling and cancer typically strike older men, with declining testosterone levels. EVERYONE ASSUMES that the state-of-the-science treatment for impotence is Viagra. While it can help, all-natural testosterone can make you feel and perform like a 21-year-old again. And, a combination of the! In your FREE BONUS GIFTS, I’ll give you my 60-SECOND SELF TEST for checking your own testosterone levels. And I’ll show you several exciting new ways to boost or DOUBLE your own natural testosterone levels quite safely, just by stimulating your body to make more.
ASPIRIN-HarmlessOr Hazardous?
Remember a couple of years ago, when an aspirin a day was thought to be a heart tonic? Popping a “harmless” white pill each day for thinner blood and a healthier heart was all the rage, and many doctors still recommend it. Not this one, though…
In fact, more than 2 years ago I sounded the alarm about the deadly risks of “aspirin therapy,” citing a University of Maryland Medical Center study in which blood platelet clumping--which can lead to heart attacks--was noted in 64% of daily aspirin-takers whose blood cholesterol levels were considered by modern medical standards as too high (LDL over 130, which leaves out relatively few Americans.)
To recap, if this University of Maryland study is correct, a daily aspirin INCREASES the risk of coronary events in people with healthy (and normal) LDL cholesterol levels of 180, 200, or more.
Yes, you read that right: anyone with an LDL cholesterol number LOWER than 200 risks serious heart problems. In fact, I don’t caution anyone to worry about cholesterol at all until their LDL hits 300 or more.
Now, let me tell you how to REALLY…Protect yourself from the world’s #1 Killer:
Everyone thinks that today’s biggest threats to your life are heart disease and cancer, but surprise...
Germs are back on top again, as a very worried AMA revealed at a conference not long ago.
People who check into hospitals for treatment of other conditions are dying of bacterial pneumonia that antibiotics can’t touch. Tuberculosis has returned to America in drug-resistant strains. New strains of colds are lasting for months and doctors are publicly worrying that the killer flu which wiped out 20 million people back in 1919 could be reborn any time now...
But cheer up, because despite what everyone tells you...
Antibiotics are not our most powerful weaponagainst infectious disease
They’re just the most profitable for drug companies. Right now, however, we already possess an alternative that can blast all the diseases mentioned above and many more to kingdom come.
It’s safe, backed by decades of solid research, and boy is it ever cheap. You can buy it at drugstores everywhere for 65¢ a bottle. So what is this amazing miracle-in-a-bottle?
Go ahead and laugh if you like, but what follows is no joke:
DID YOU KNOW that your own white blood cells produce hydrogen peroxide? Yes they do. Lots of it.
KNOW WHY? Because that’s how they kill invading germs. It’s your body’s first and best defense against any infection. Kills bacteria, viruses, yeast, parasites-all the bad guys.
DON’T BELIEVE ME? Look it up. (Try the Encyclopedia Britannica website. Check the info on “granulocytes.” See? I told you so.) BUT HOW? The hydrogen peroxide molecule (H202) is basically water (H20) with an extra oxygen atom attached. When that oxygen gets released against germs, it “oxidizes” them. Poof, they’re goners.
And this shockingly cheap therapy was a real health miracle for my patients in Africa, where the ungodly high cost of drugs condemns millions to death every year.
So how do drug companies get away with selling expensive antibiotics, when we’ve got this stuff that’s nearly free? You’d call me paranoid if I told you. But I’ll tell you anyway in your FREE BONUS GIFTS, plus how to find a doctor skilled in this secret miracle.
I’ll explain how it’s done in your FREE BONUS REPORTS, along with some very nifty “minor” applications. It can be used topically to clear up sinus infections, erase benign moles and even clear up periodontitis without surgery. No kidding. You’ll see.
Getting intrigued? I’m just warming up...
I’d love to brief you on many more JUNK MEDICINE MYTHS to avoid and real health breakthroughs that truly deliver the goods, but I’m out of space. So why not scratch that itch in the back of your mind, sign up for your FREE BONUS GIFTS and find out all about:

VITAMIN “O” AND OTHER JOKES that masquerade as alternative medicine. They say you eat this stuff and it floods your body with oxygen. EAT oxygen? You may as well try to breathe food.
POWER NAPPING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. Napping is fabulous medicine and now you can make it an even more bountiful fountain of health. Winston Churchill, Thomas Edison, Napoleon, JFK and other human dynamos shared this sleepy little secret that can make you smarter, sexier and more productive. ...and there’s so much more I’m longing to tell you that will make you stop dreading the word “health” and start feeling fantastic.

# 117 Follow-up to Post:# 89 Biotechnology Insanity and FrankenHumans

When, if you did, read my post, back in January of 2007, you probably laughed and said, " Talker is ready for the white jacket ". Be honest now. What did you really think, if you did read my post?
Razors Edge January 04, 2007
# 89 Biotechnology Insanity and FrankenHumans
I went to the site and viewed the movie about GMO & GMF. What I saw, falls into a category of TOTAL INSANITY. What you see is a wake up call readers. The outcome presented in the video, if taken to the extreme is saying: Your children and pets, have eaten our GMO products, and according to the patent laws, and detection of "our patented products" through blood tests, in your children and pets, they are now "our property, unless you pay us a royalty".

Corporate Greed, Intellectual Property Laws and the Destruction of Human Civilization
by Mike Adams

Did you know that if you have children you are an international criminal? You have violated intellectual property laws by infringing on the copyrights of companies that have been granted patents on the human genome. You have replicated that gene sequence by having children without the permission of the owners of those gene sequences. As bizarre as it sounds, it's absolutely true: having children is a violation of patent law.

This has come about because those at the U.S. Patent Office seem to have lost their collective minds. They have allowed companies and individuals to gain ownership of intellectual property that should never have been granted to a private organization or individual. Some things belong to nature -- like the gene sequence of a human being. Man didn't create it. There's no Einstein who created the human gene sequence, put together some DNA and made human beings. People are not an invention; they are a creation.

Intellectual property, and patents in particular, are intended to cover inventions; things that we were the first to create, not something we stumbled across because we have the right equipment to detect them in the natural world. Clearly, genes are already in existence. We did not invent them; nature did. And yet, people and organizations have been granted patents on seeds from nature.

No patents on seeds
Those of you familiar with the subject know I'm talking about basmati rice, a type of rice native to India. It has been harvested for centuries throughout India and Southeast Asia. But a few years ago, a U.S. company filed for a patent on basmati rice and the U.S. Patent Office said, "Sure enough, you own it." That company then proceeded to try to shut down the harvesting and farming of basmati rice in India. They said, in effect, "All you farmers out there? You owe us a royalty now. We own the patent on this seed." Luckily, the Indian government intervened and thwarted the patent by having the rice listed under the European Commission's regulations that protect regional foods.

But the fact that the patent was issued at all illustrates how intellectual property has spiraled out of control in the United States and other countries. If you wonder why companies are granted patents for the human gene sequence or for seeds, here's the reason: It's because corporations are in charge, and they run governments. Who do you think runs the Food and Drug Administration? It's the drug companies. Who do you think runs the U.S. Department of Agriculture? It's the farming, beef and the dairy industries.

Take a look at every single decision the USDA, the FDA, and various government departments have made: they benefit big business. It's all about not just protecting business, but helping big business become more profitable.

The arrogance of modern man
You know what it tells me when humanity tries to take credit and ownership of things from nature? That mankind thinks it's smarter than nature; that men think they are gods who own nature and feel they can exploit nature for any purpose they desire. This is the attitude of a majority of the human population today, and certainly it is the attitude of those who are in power, like those who run big corporations and governments. They say, "Nature is there for us to exploit." This is reflected in the intellectual property laws today, which say, in effect, that we own nature and that anything we happen to stumble across is from that point forward our "property."

It is this attitude that allows people to go out and plunder the planet; strip the planet of its minerals, raw materials and clean water, then dump polluted water back in to the rivers, streams and oceans; to use clean air and return only toxic waste, jet fuel exhaust, car exhaust and coal plant exhaust into the atmosphere. Corporations say, "This piece of paper from the U.S. Patent Office says I own this gene sequence, this seed, this piece of land." It's amazing.

Native Americans had it right when they laughed at the white man who said, "We'll trade you these beads for Manhattan Island." The Native Americans thought, "Nobody owns Manhattan Island, nobody owns the land, nobody owns the planet. If you want to give us these beads in order to think you own a piece of land, go for it." They didn't know the white man was serious. White man said, "Okay, now we're going to build a fence and defend ourselves against you all the way to the other coast. Then we're going to set up these tiny reservations and put you on them, and allow you to call them your homeland."

We are guests on this planet
In my view, we don't own anything on this planet. We are guests here; we are lucky to be here, to have a planet that has all of this water and air, all of this wonderful green life all around us; wherever you turn, there is life on this planet. In the oceans, on the mountains, across the plains, in the jungles and even in places where you wouldn't think you would find life, like in the frozen tundra of the north and at the bottom of the oceans, where volcanic vents are spewing boiling water.

We have a duty to take care of this planet. We have a duty not to own it or think it's our intellectual property, but rather to respect it and honor it. Right now, we take that for granted. We cut down trees and use them as resources. We dig up coal and burn it. We take water out of the environment, pollute it, then dump it back into the environment. And yet we don't pay Mother Nature for any of this. If we take all these resources from the planet, we should give it something in return. We should replace and replenish these resources. At the very least, we should offer thanks for it.

Traditional herbalists -- whether they're Native American, Aborigine, Australian, South American, Incan, Mayan or from any other culture -- would ask plants for permission when they harvested them from the natural environment. They would thank the plant when they took its leaves, roots, or flowers, or rhizomes. Today our corporations say, "We own the planet, and we'll take what we want. We'll punish anybody else who tries to grow this plant because we own its intellectual property." There is a big difference between asking permission from nature and saying, "We own nature and we do with it what we want." But that is the attitude prevalent today.

Nature will find balance
Our modern world -- our so-called technologically advanced world -- is so advanced that we think we own the trees, rivers, streams, oceans, the lands, the seeds and the gene sequences. But we're in for a big surprise here, because Mother Nature has a way of reminding people they are not in control, a way of correcting the imbalances. We've been exploiting Mother Nature in a systematic, aggressive way for a couple of hundred years. We've already had a huge, destructive, negative impact on the planet in this short time.

The planet is going to rebalance itself one way or another. We are the guests here, and if we don't remember that, Mother Nature will remind us of it. It will most likely happen in a gentle, nudging way -- like global climate change, infectious diseases, global pandemics and food supply shortages. Maybe there will be other little reminders, like global water shortages, typhoons, earthquakes and changes in weather patterns that affect the food supply. It will likely be these types of things that kill a lot of human beings. Not only is this is going to keep happening, but I think it's going to accelerate. We as human beings are creating the conditions that will cause these devastating events.

When we treat animals inhumanely -- when we corral them together in cramped pens and slaughter them for food, when we feed cattle the ground up remains of dead animals and chicken feces -- which is a USDA-approved practice -- we create an environment that is ripe for infectious disease, mutation and infection. If you think the flu of 1918 was bad, wait until you see the next pandemic that comes along. And when a pandemic gets out of control, when a virus becomes a global infectious agent, there's not much you can do about it. All the intellectual property in the world can't save you from an infectious disease.

Even the most advanced technology in the world cannot overcome the repercussions of the disasters we have set into motion on this planet from being the egotistical, aggressive version of humanity that we have become. I think it all comes back to intellectual property, because it and the laws surrounding it demonstrate a lack of humility and honor for Mother Nature and our natural world. They demonstrate the arrogance of mankind, our non-sustainable business community and our war mongering nations. This arrogance is going to come back to bite us in a big way.

Corporations are destroying our future
When you have companies that violate the laws of nature in the name of corporate profits, you are flirting with true disaster. A good example of this is Monsanto, which developed the terminator seed -- one which will not produce viable seeds after the first generation, thus forcing farmers around the world to buy seed from Monsanto year after year. This sets up a situation where the farmers of the world have only a single season of seed. If something goes wrong in just one production sequence, we have global famine on your hands -- all because they are willing to protect intellectual property for corporate profit. They are willing to distort nature to the point of causing plants to terminate their own seeds, just to make a buck. That is in such gross violation of the very laws of nature, it appalls me that any human being even thought of it. It is an invitation for global disaster.

Who on Earth would actually think of such a concept? To say, "Let's take something from nature that has been reproducing for probably hundreds of thousands of years, and modify it so it terminates its own offspring." To say, "The shareholders will love that one. I can't wait to introduce it to the market and force farmers and third world countries to buy this seed. Oh, what a big profit center that will be." Could any sane person actually do that? I think not: This idea could have only come from clinically insane corporate leaders who have completely lost touch with the planet they live on.

They did it because planting your own seed does not create the dependence on big corporations that are trying to rule this world. Self-replicating seeds which have been saved year after year, generation after generation, throughout every culture on our planet, offer sustainability, freedom and independence. Corporate America wants dependence -- it wants centralized control, scarcity, a monopoly; it creates this by forcing people to use things like terminator seeds and by claiming intellectual property over things like the gene sequence of a seed.

The situation has become so bizarre that if you were to go back in time and try to explain to somebody in the 1970s what is happening today, they wouldn't believe you. They'd ask, "What do you mean, someone said they own basmati rice? They have a plant that kills its own offspring? When you have children you're violating patent law? What are you talking about?" Their next question would likely be, "Have you gone mad?"

The answer is yes, we have gone mad. We have let this thing go so far out of control, and we have distorted nature to such an extent that we are creating our own destruction at every level -- physical, nutritional, emotional and definitely spiritual -- and we're doing it all in the name of corporate profits. Corporations need to keep money flowing into politicians' pockets, which in turn keeps the dollars flowing into the corporate coffers. Welcome to the modern world. It's crazier than you think, and it's getting crazier still.

If we don't start exploring ways to hand freedom back to farmers, communities and individual members of our society, to respect and be humbled by these natural resources that we freely take from Mother Nature, then Mother Nature will find a way to balance itself with or without humanity. The question for us is: Do we want to be here?

We must change or be destroyed by our own greed
On our current path, we will destroy our planet and all the nature around us. We will starve ourselves to death because we won't have a food supply, or even a predictable environment in which to grow food. We will poison ourselves with the toxic chemicals we are putting into our environment. We will destroy ourselves with the infectious agents we have created by facilitating the conditions under which they will flourish.

We are committing suicide as a species today. It is well past time to wake up, and the cost of staying ignorant is going to increase exponentially in the decades ahead. Eventually, people will have no choice but to wake up and do something about it. I hope that happens sooner rather than later because when it's too late, it's too late for all of us.

So, what can you do as an individual? You can engage in sustainable consumption, and support those products and companies that have a sustainable model for production. You can use cleaner energy sources. You can stand up against the ridiculous intellectual property climate that we have created today. There are a lot of things you can do, and collectively, if we all do smart things -- if we all wake up and learn to respect nature rather than try to own it -- we can make some positive changes. It's not too late yet. We still have a chance to turn this thing around and find a way to live in harmony with Mother Nature.

We have the communications technology to share this information and to wake people up. We have the scientific knowledge to realize what we need to be doing. We just need the political will to do it, and that power comes from the people. So, do your part: be a wise consumer. Don't support big businesses that are out to exploit nature. I recommend that you don't buy anything from Monsanto, Phillip Morris or Kraft Foods. Forget about Coke and Pepsi. Support small sustainable farms, organic farms, family farms, your local food co-ops and your local farmer's market.

Another, huge step you can take is to have your own garden. Grow heirloom plants, not hybrid plants, so you can save your seeds and use them generation after generation. The very act of saving and using seeds is, in its own way, a respectful ritual for nature. Who knows? Someday you may have to depend on those seeds, because all the other corporate seeds out there have terminated themselves and can't be counted on anymore. So keep saving them, and keep them alive. You will be doing your part to help sustain nature, and human life as well. See the Seed Savers Exchange:

I know these are serious topics, but these are serious times. There are big issues at stake here. If we don't make the right choices on these issues, then we're going to pay the price for a very long time. We have to wake up and recognize what we're doing in this world, and we have to change our ways. Humanity is not currently on a sustainable path, and if we don't change, Mother Nature will eventually change things for us, causing a massive population drop across the planet.

Remember: if we don't figure out how to live with nature, nature will most certainly figure out how to live without us. We are not a necessary component for this planet. We are not in charge and, frankly, we don't own anything around here. We are just guests.

# 116 World's Deadliest Germs and Common Sense !

Surprise, the package you just found on you're doorstep, was part of a lost shipment. Who lost it and what was in it! Oh, only things considered to be some of the world's deadliest germs. Say what!
Just read in the Chicago Sun Times, 10/ 3 / 07, that there were some 100 accidents and missing shipments, involving anthrax, bird flu virus, monkeypox,and plague-causing bacteria, in 44 labs in 24 states. Not to worry though, no one died, and the public was never at risk! Seems that I hear lies of that nature every so often. Stated was that the lab workers had experienced bites, or scratches by infected animals, skin cuts, needle sticks,and more! There is no cure , if infected, for some of these illnesses! So who is steering the ship, and watching mishaps of this nature? The article states " No single federal agency has the mission to track the overall number of these labs in the United States ", says a report from the Government Accountability Office. During the past seven months of 2007, labs reported 36 accidents and LOST SHIPMENTS, nearly double the number reported during ALL of 2004. Not to worry though, the government is " watching you ", oop's, that was a slip, should be " watching out for you ", right! With all the monitoring taking place, like, illegal wire taps, listening-in on telephone calls, watching you're E-mails, and making you throw away you're tooth-paste at the airport, perhaps the " lost deadliest germs " shipments will show-up. Why worry about the worlds deadliest germs, when it is much easier to go after alternative medicine practitioners, and protect private security forces in Iraq from prosecution for wrong doings, while holding US troops responsible for lessor violations. Maybe I expect to much from people. Traits like common sense and integrity, are easily forced out by certain opportunities.

# 115 Cancer: A Multi-System Disease Part 2

Am pleased to post this follow-up information on healing cancer naturally, with herbs. Better print out a hard copy, this type of information is always under scrutiny and attack, and subject to forced removal by certain powerful agencies. Also am repeating for added emphasis, the following: Is it fool-proof! No healing system is fool-proof. Will it work every time! Nothing in healing, works every time. Will it hurt me! You got cancer, and you worry about hurt! My doctor won't like this! Cancer is not a popularity contest. My point of view, is that, winning a cancer war, with a natural healing system, requires daily persistence, and extreme aggressiveness.Persistence and aggressiveness is, with-out a doubt, going to be, the the most difficult part to continue with and apply on a daily basis. You are at war with a disease, that wants to maim or claim your life. At a certain point in this war, you may find it very difficult to do what is required, and want to stop, don't yield to that urge.By including prayer, spiritual, and energy healing, with the herbs, makes for a powerful combination. Pissy warm, once in a while efforts, just will not do it. That being said, here is the article:

Traditional Herbal Blood Tonic Recipe Revealed by Medical Herbalist by Leslee Dru Browning (NewsTarget) Blood tonics today are used for cancer prevention; cancer treatment; liver health, viral and bacterial infections. In the days of old, blood tonics were called Spring Tonics and farmers would religiously take them come Spring Time after a long sedentary winter to get their sluggish blood in shape for the upcoming season of farming. A custom that has been lost in today’s world. Why? And why aren’t blood tonics readily available for purchase from holistic healers or from health food stores? Could it be that pharmaceutical companies don’t want any competition from herbal and botanical medicines? In Dr. Wright’s Newsletter dated September 17, 2007, he talked about Washington State's war on holistic M.D.s. Sad but true. Holistic healers are still being attacked in the USA that spouts that we are a Free Nation...except when it comes to health care, of course. The onslaught on alternative healers is brought about by Big Pharma, Big Business, the American Cancer Society, the AMA and our elected politicians who are bribed by lobbyists. They don’t want you healthy! Instead, they want the path cleared of anyone who can heal you so they can keep pushing their legal high-profit drugs. In today’s world where the propaganda mantra is “There is no cure”, holistic healers are being harassed, arrested and charged with “moral turpitude”, and put out of business simply because they can cure what ails you.With the attacks on Natural Medicine it can be hard to find an Herbalist who can make up blood tonics for their cancer clients. Herbalists can be hard to locate, especially those who specialize in cancer treatments because they do not advertise since it is against the law in the USA for any health care practitioner to claim they can heal cancer; or any other illness for that matter, yet, it is not against the law to heal yourself. Therefore, why not learn to make your own? In this article I will give the recipe for the very first blood tonic I made.Browning's Blended Spirits is a blood tonic I formulated years ago for an 80 year old man who had been diagnosed with Invasive Bladder Cancer that had spread to his lymph. During surgery it was found that his tumor had grown outside the wall of the bladder and the surgeon was unable to remove it all. He refused chemotherapy and radiation treatments and was given only 3-6 months to live. His family called me to see if I could help him. After hearing his case I couldn’t recommend herbal capsules because he had difficulty swallowing so I made him this blood tonic. Also included in his treatment was a Bladder and Kidney tonic along with diet changes.His cancer was eliminated in 6 months and was verified by a cat scan his doctor did in the hospital. The doctors were mystified when they could not find any cancer in his body, yet they never asked what he did to eliminate his cancer. That alone suggested that his doctors not only didn’t care how he healed himself; but that his doctors weren’t the least bit curious about alternative medicine and how they might learn from his recovery. The gentleman is no longer living, but he did not die of cancer. He died of old age from natural causes. I continued to use this blood tonic recipe for several types of cancer and bacterial illnesses in my practice up until the day I retired.About the Ingredients:Browning’s Blended Spirits Blood Tonic contains a comprehensive blend of all-natural ingredients of herbs that are effective for blood purification and detoxification. The ingredients in this blend provide nutritive support to the body and are historically proven to provide both cleansing action and detoxification of the cells throughout the body including the lymph, lungs, liver, heart, colon and bloodstream. Many of the ingredients like burdock root, chaparral, poke root, red clover and yellow dock have been used for years to treat cancer.

What ingredients you will need make the tonic:

3oz each of the following dried herbs:

Anise seed (pimpinella anisum)

Blue violet (viola odorata)

Burdock root (arctium lappa)

Chaparral (larrea tridentate)

Dandelion root (taraxacum officinale)

Fennel (foeniculum vulgare)

Licorice root (glycyrrhiza glabra)

Oregon grape (mahonia aquifolium)

Poke root (phytolacca Americana)

Red clover (trifolium pretense)

Yellow dock root (rumex crispus).

40 oz of Honey or Black Strap Molasses, your choice.

16 oz of Vegetable glycerin.

4 Tablespoons of Citric acid which can be found in health food stores or from herb companies on-line.

5 gallons of distilled water

Purchase the whole herb (cut root and cut leaf) instead of the powdered herb if you can. The reason for this is two-fold. First, the powder absorbs more water leaving you with less liquid; second, the powder takes longer and is harder to strain. I purchase most of my dried herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs. Their herbs are processed and handled according to strict organic standards and they will sell individual herbs in a 4oz quantity so you will not have to purchase a full pound. I am sure there are many other herb company’s and health food stores that carry the herbs you will need. Just make sure they are organic.What cooking tools you will need:You will also need two stainless steel or glass 20 quart pots with lids.A large strainer.

A candy or water thermometer.Cheesecloth.For bottling you can use regular canning jars. If using pint jars you will need about 24 – 28 jars. If using quart jars you will need about 14 jars. This is a large recipe that will provide one year worth of tonics for the cancer patient, or, if using for a preventative go together with friends or family and share it.

How to make the tonic:

Making this tonic is like canning fruit from your garden. If you can cook you can make it. It takes a few days but is well worth it. You will not find this tonic on the market because it is time intense. The cost would be prohibitive to manufacture it, yet you can make it in your home for around $3.00 a pint. This tonic stores for up to a year if placed in a dark cool closet. They key to keeping tonics fresh is to prevent them from exposure to extreme temperature fluctuations. Don’t let them freeze and don’t let them sit in temperatures above 75*.In one pot add:Anise seed, burdock root, chaparral, dandelion root, fennel, licorice root, oregon grape root, poke root, yellow dock root and add 3 gallons of distilled water.Cover with lid and set on stove on warm heat overnight so that the roots can be softened for extraction.In the morning turn up the heat and bring the water to a low simmer for about 4 hours then bring to a boil for 15-30 minutes. After boiling turn off heat and strain the liquid into a clean container by laying a layer of cheesecloth over your strainer.In another pot add:Blue violet, red clover and add 1.5 gallons of distilled water. Set on counter and let soak in water over night.In the morning place the pot on the stove on warm/medium heat to steep (not boil) the herbs like you would a cup of tea. Let them steep for at least 4 hours then strain the liquid by laying a layer of cheesecloth over your strainer.Compost the strained herbs in your garden.Mixing the pots:Once the liquid is strained from both pots mix it together in one of the 20 quart pots and let it simmer for about 30 minutes.Then add 16 oz of vegetable glycerin,40 oz of honey (or black strap molasses for those allergic to honey)4 heaping tablespoons of citric acidStir and let the mixture mingle for 15 minutes or so. When ready to bottle use a candy thermometer to check the temperature of the liquid. You want the temperature between 185* - 190* to prevent any bacteria to grow in the tonics. Maintain this heat temperature throughout bottling.While waiting for your liquid to reach the accurate bottling temperature prepare your canning jars. Sterilize jars and lids.Once your bottles are sterilized and your herbal liquid is at the right temperature add the tonic liquid to the hot jars. Fill to ½” from top of jar and cap. Let cool overnight. Check to make sure all the jars are sealed properly then store them.Once you open a jar of tonic for use you must Refrigerate it. The tonic will last for a month in the refrigerator once it has been opened. Sediment in the bottom of the jars is normal. Give the jar a little shake or stir to mix the sediment before taking.How much to take:Adult Folklore Dosage: 2 Tablespoon 2 times a day for cancer, tumors, liver, viral and bacterial infections. In my practice I recommended that cancer patients take this tonic for at least a year and then drop to a maintenance dose of taking it once a day for another year. Some of my cancer patients continue to take it on and off throughout their life to keep their blood and lymph clear of toxins.For cancer prevention use a bottle of this tonic every 3 months taking 1 Tablespoon 2 times a day.Do use if you are pregnant. Do not use if you are taking blood thinning agents like Warfarin (also known under the brand names of Coumadin, Jantoven, Marevan, and Waran).Disclaimer—The information provided in this article is for informational purposes only and is not intended as a substitute for advice from your health care professional.

# 114 USDA and Applied Common Sense !

Razors Edge # 114 USDA and Applied Common Sense
In the Chicago Tribune, October 2, 2007, the headline read " Bill would reduce meat inspections ", it goes on to say "despite E. coli scare, Congress mulls easing law ".
In the Chicago Tribune, October 4, 2007, " USDA took 18 days in the meat recall ". The article goes on to state " agency knew of tainted burgers" employee writes.
Both articles were by written Stephen J. Hedges, of the Washington Bureau.
Now commences the scary part.

The two headlines are bad enough, but when one goes into actually reading the full article, you just have to wonder “ who is getting rich, selling stupid pills “. Pure “lack of common sense” glares at you, as you read more of the article. So, in face of the largest, contaminated meat, recall in history, our Congress is considering legislation that would REDUCE required federal inspections for small meat companies that ship to another state. This little noticed-noticed legislative change is buried deep within the farm bill, approved in July, by the house. It mentions that “ only state inspections would be required for some meat products “.The measure was planted in the farm bill by Rep. Collin Peterson ( D-Minn. ) say congressional staffers familiar with the bill. Anyway, the meat in question had E.coli 0157:H7, in it. So what is E.coli, it is a possibly deadly bacterium that causes bloody diarrhea, stomach cramps and dehydration. Catch the “possibly deadly “ part of what E.coli represents to ones health, meaning it could kill one. Lest you overlook that part, it means E.coli poisoning, folks. Some states, at this time, do not even have meat inspection laws, and depend on the federal inspections. The second article goes into the reasons the USDA, delayed taking action. A tiny paragraph states, as I interpret it, “ if its only poop, don’t worry, but check to see if it is an E.coli strain that causes human illness “ ! It was finally classed as “ Class 1 “, which is the USDA’s most serious, with a reasonable probability that eating the food will cause health problems or death. What I found of interest, was that in the plant that was affected by the recall, there was previously, a USDA meat safety inspector within that plant. The article goes on to state that “ E.coli poisoning, is especially hard on children and the elderly and can, according to the USDA cause severe kidney damage.

# 11 More Hyperbole, Hypocrisy and Nonsense
on how to contact your states representatives, if you want to pick up the safety torch.
