Advisory Panel Urges CDC to Push Gardasil on Young Boys
Government advisory committee that advises the Centers for Disease Control on vaccine recommendations has urged the CDC to recommend the HPV shot Gardasil to be given to boys between the ages of 11 and 12[U1] . Gardasil is already recommended to young girls, and in California girls as young as 12 are able to receive the shot without parental consent. [U2] The recommendation falls perfectly in line with Merck’s latest campaign to expand the Gardasil demographic to young boys, with their deceptive ad campaign marketed specifically towards boys. What the government advisory committee is not discussing is the fact that Gardasil was linked to 3,589 harmful reactions between May 2009 and September 2010 alone.----They also fail to mention that previous legislative decisions regarding Gardasil were found to be corrupt and riddled with monetary incentives on behalf of Merck, the maker of Gardasil. Perhaps Merck has the almighty dollar included in this decision as well. The few thousand dollars given to each key legislator in the California decision is nothing compared to what Merck stands to gain from the legislation. The same is very true with the advisory committee. A CDC recommendation will vastly increase profits, way beyond the recent California legislation. In addition, health insurers typically cover vaccines that are recommended by the CDC.--- In addition to routinely administering the HPV shot to boys between 11 and 12, the advisory panel is also calling for Gardasil to be given to boys as young as age 9 and for males ages 13 to 21 who have missed the “ideal vaccination age window” of 11-12.---The Gardasil scam is unraveling-----The news comes just days after FDA documents were uncovered by Judicial Watch revealing an additional 26 deaths as a result of Gardasil use through adverse-reaction reports. In addition to the 26 deaths, the documents also detailed a number of severe side effects including seizures, paralysis, blindness, pancreatitis, speech problems, short-term memory loss and Guillain-Barré Syndrome.---Of course the average consumer would not know about this information, as Merck fails to mention any tidbit of truth on their website or in their popular ads.---In fact, on the official Gardasil website death is not listed as a side effect of Gardasil. Instead, Merck lists only minor side effects that conflict with mainstream reports of the extreme side effects associated with Gardasil. In Merck’s ad, they market Gardasil to young boys, showcasing their desire to expand the market to the male gender. Here is the list of side effects Merck provides consumers----Pain, swelling, itching, bruising, and redness at the injection site—Headache--Fever—Nausea—Dizziness—Vomiting—Fainting----
These phony symptoms are purely deceptive. As previously mentioned, Gardasil was linked to 3,589 harmful reactions and 16 deaths between May 2009 and September 2010 alone. Of the 3,589 adverse reactions, many were debilitating. Permanent disability was the result of 213 cases; 25 resulted in the diagnosis of Guillain-Barre Syndrome; and there were 789 other “serious” reports according to FDA documents. Not only should the CDC ignore the suggestion to make Gardasil a recommended vaccine, but they should call for the immediate discontinuation of the shot due to the massive amount of evidence linking it to death and serious side effects.

Many people would want it for the food unless Uncle Sam takes it away! Maybe it should by offered by contractors too. Everyone needs food, win-win.
Great news!: People who have started businesses transforming lawns into food producing gardens always report being overwhelmed with requests right away. Edible Estates is featured here, and they're on a mission to transform lawns around the country. Lawns cover an estimated 30 million acres in the US. They account for 20-50% of all residential water use. Why not grow food?

U.S. Goals in Promoting Ag Biotech
In a leaked U.S. State Department cable, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton outlined U.S. policy around biotech. Clinton's outlined objectives are not materially different from those described the year before by outgoing Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. Clinton wrote:"Our biotech outreach objectives for 2010 are to increase access to, and markets for, biotech as a means to help address the underlying causes of the food crisis, and to promote agricultural technology's role in mitigating climate change and increasing biofuel production. We will pursue these objectives by: Encouraging science and technology to play crucial roles in unleashing additional agricultural productivity, particularly in the developing world. Many international organizations have called for a second Green Revolution in Africa, and biotechnology will be a central part of that effort[U3] . Biotechnology is being used to increase crop yields and enhance the ability of food crops to sustain climate shocks.[U4] Publicizing the fact that agricultural biotechnology can help address the food crisis and serve as a development tool by increasing food productivity, reducing crop input costs, and helping to alleviate poverty.[U5] Recognizing the role biotechnology can play in mitigating climate change by increasing the efficiency of land already in production and by increasing adoption of agricultural practices such as low till agriculture that trap carbon in the soil. Reinforcing the environmental gains from decreased insecticide use, reduced soil erosion, and increased plant efficiency, stressing the potential for improved nutrition and disease prevention, and encouraging the development and commercialization of ag-biotech products that meet the unique needs of developing nations. Encouraging countries to abide by global trading rules and accept science-based evaluation of food production methods.[U6] The U.S. will continue its effort to open markets and advocate responsible regulation. We will continue to seek full EU compliance with the 2006 WTO ruling against the EU de facto moratorium on approving agricultural biotechnology products. Taking full advantage of the WTO biotech ruling by explaining the significance of the case, particularly to developing countries, and by stressing the global scientific consensus on the safety of ag-biotech products noted by the final WTO panel decision. Some countries, especially in the developing world, lack the opportunity to utilize advanced crop technology due to concerns that the EU will not accept their agricultural exports if produced with the aid of biotechnology. The U.S. should support developing countries that seek access to biotechnology, and reaffirm the WTO's 2006 panel ruling on this issue.
Ensuring that activities taken pursuant to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety and the Codex Alimentarius are in line with those countries' obligations under international trade agreements. Promoting the understanding that ag-biotech contributes to production of biofuels through increased yields and improved feedstocks, and helps ensure food security."
In a leaked 2008 memo, Rice wrote: "Although our biotech strategy is global, we plan to pay particular attention to advancing this strategy through active engagement with key countries, with the medium-term goal of establishing models of ag-biotech trade and development success that can be a powerful demonstration to others."---Countries targeted in 2009 included: Brazil, Burkina Faso, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, Germany, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Peru, the Philippines, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, Ukraine, Vatican, and Vietnam.
U.S. Ag Biotech Promotion Efforts by Country
Efforts by the U.S. to promote biotechnology have been documented in the following countries
United Arab Emirates
[U1]Lets make sure not one gender is sterile let’s make sure both are—we don’t want to discriminate in this issue of population management—besides if any of these kids survive there will be a war that cannot be stopped –because they will remember how they have been violated ---this would be a consensus
[U2]In other words the State has taken over California children acting as there parent rather then allowing the parents to be the guardians---it would appear California has led the way to a government controlled state right into the homes of the citizens in the state--
[U3]Africa Is now going to be further genocided with the new introduction of genetically engineering of there land—It will be done through fiscal aid through the IMF just like they did to Haiti and other places—strong arming them into consuming this type of poison
[U5]Another Myth and another Sales pitch to an unsuspecting people

Recent topics related to testosterone deficiency syndrome in Japan.
Asian J Androl. 2011 Jul;13(4):558-62 -Authors: Tsujimura A, Nonomura N
Androgens, the levels of which decrease with ageing, play many physiological roles in various organs. Testosterone deficiency syndrome (TDS) has received widespread attention in the last several years. First-line treatment for TDS should be testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), which is reported to improve several TDS symptoms. Recently, a clinical practice manual for TDS was written and published by a collaborative team from the Japanese Urological Association and the Japanese Society for the Study of the Aging Male to recommend standard procedures for the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and monitoring of adverse reactions to TRT and for post-treatment assessment. In this manual, intramuscular injection of testosterone enanthate or human chorionic gonadotropin and the testosterone gel 'Glowmin' were recommended as TRT. Currently, two topics related to TDS are being focused on in Japan: the relationship between TDS and metabolic syndrome and treatment options for eugonadal patients with TDS symptoms. In this review, the possibility of TRT for metabolic syndrome as well as the relationship between testosterone and adiponectin, which is a key molecule in metabolic syndrome, is discussed. Finally, the possibility of herbal medicines as a treatment option for patients with TDS is addressed, especially for eugonadal patients, because eugonadal men with TDS symptoms account for approximately 30% of the general population. The increase in the levels of several cytokines, such as IL-8, IL-13, interferon-γ and tumor necrosis factor-α, after herbal medicine treatment may be the reason for this efficacy.

An Alternative to this would be celery seed and mustard seeds and as well as pine and deer antler and tongat ali mixed in a good proportion can as well elevate testosterone with out the shots---there are several other things as well would be to reduce estrogens---to avoid foods that would break down the body’s cycle of testosterone production and to increase the foods that will support male physiology
Beetroot-hawthorn berry blend may boost heart health
A proprietary blend of beetroot and Hawthorn berry may boost the activity of an enzyme linked to improved heart health, suggests a new study from Texas.
Researchers from the University of Texas and Neogenis Laboratories report that the herbal blend could improve the status of nitric oxide in the body – nitric oxide (NO) is a potent vasodilator, or compound that promotes the dilation or relaxation of blood vessels, thereby easing blood pressure and boosting heart health. ---“The strategy of formulating a combination of natural products and botanicals chosen specifically for their NO activity shows promise in restoring NO [control] in human subjects at risk for cardiovascular disease for use as a dietary supplement,” wrote researchers in Nutrition Research. --The researchers used a ‘unique formulation from intellectual property’ developed by the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, and licensed exclusively to Neogenis Laboratories. The formulation is called Neo40 Daily. ---“The formula is based on a proprietary blend of NO active herbs that act to replete and restore NO production in the human body by exploiting the nitrate-nitrite-NO pathway,” explained the researchers. --Recent study of the nitrate-nitrite-NO pathway has highlighted its importance in biological processes, including regulation of blood flow, blood pressure, cellular signaling, glucose control, and tissue responses to low oxygen levels (hypoxia).
The first study of many? ---The study’s corresponding author, Nathan Bryan, PhD, assistant professor of molecular medicine at the University of Texas, told NutraIngredients-USA.com: “This is the first human study of the supplement although we have several more studies planned and in the process.” ---Dr Bryan explained that the product has been commercially available since August 2010. “What makes our product unique is the system we have developed to produce nitric oxide where beet root and hawthorn play a unique and critical role.” Beetroot was chosen because it was found to contain high levels of nitrate, while hawthorn berries have a high activity of the enzyme nitrite reductase, which converts nitrite to nitric oxide. ---Dr Bryan acknowledges a financial interest in Neogenis and adds that such conflicts of interest are managed by the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Conflicts of Interest Management Plans.
The researchers recruited 30 people with a median age of 56 with at least three cardiovascular risk factors, including a family history of heart disease, smoking, elevated blood pressure (hypertension), obesity, or high blood lipid levels (hyperlipidemia). --Participants were randomly assigned to receive either the herb blend or placebo for 30 days. ---At the end of the study, Dr Bryan and his co-workers found that blood nitrate and nitrite levels increased in the herb blend group, compared with placebo, and these increases were indicative of “an increase in systemic NO availability”, they said. ---In addition, 72 percent of the herb supplement group experience statistically significant reductions in the blood triglyceride levels, compared with their levels at the start of the study.
Proof of concept
“Although these studies were simply designed to show proof of concept for restoring NO homeostasis through a dietary supplement, therefore modifying risk factors for CVD, more studies are needed to more clearly define the role of NO dietary supplement for optimal health and nutrition,” explained the researchers. ---“Future studies will determine if such strategies using NO active dietary supplements can help reduce the progression of [cardiovascular disease] and the incidence of myocardial infarction and stroke,” they added.
Dr Bryan added that his group “continues to investigate the NO activity of certain foods and have developed an algorithm for predicting and quantifying the nitric oxide activity of foods,” he added. --“We call this the Nitric Oxide Index.” --Source: Nutrition Research--Volume 31, Issue 4, Pages 262-269

The Rice with human genes
The first GM food crop containing human genes is set to be approved for commercial production.--The laboratory-created rice produces some of the human proteins found in breast milk and saliva.--Its U.S. developers say they could be used to treat children with diarrhoea, a major killer in the Third World. The rice is a major step in so-called Frankenstein Foods, the first mingling of human-origin genes and those from plants. But the U.S. Department of Agriculture has already signalled it plans to allow commercial cultivation.--The rice's producers, California-based Ventria Bioscience, have been given preliminary approval to grow it on more than 3,000 acres in Kansas. The company plans to harvest the proteins and use them in drinks, desserts, yoghurts and muesli bars.[U1] --The news provoked horror among GM critics and consumer groups on both sides of the Atlantic. GeneWatch UK, which monitors new GM foods, described it as "very disturbing". Researcher Becky Price warned: "There are huge, huge health risks and people should rightly be concerned about this."--Friends of the Earth campaigner Clare Oxborrow said: "Using food crops and fields as glorified drug factories is a very worrying development.[U2] "If these pharmaceutical crops end up on consumers' plates, the consequences for our health could be devastating. "The biotech industry has already failed to prevent experimental GM rice contaminating the food chain. "The Government must urge the U.S. to ban the production of drugs in food crops. It must also introduce tough measures to prevent illegal GM crops contaminating our food and ensure that biotech companies are liable for any damage their products cause." In the U.S., the Union of Concerned Scientists, a policy advocacy group, warned: "It is unwise to produce drugs in plants outdoors. "There would be little control over the doses people might get exposed to, and some might be allergic to the proteins." The American Consumers Union and the Washington based Centre for Food Safety also oppose Ventria's plans. As well as the contamination fears there are serious ethical concerns about such a fundamental interference with the building blocks of life. Yet there is no legal means for Britain and Europe to ban such products on ethical grounds.[U3] Imports would have to be accepted once they had gone through a scientific safety assessment. The development is what may people feared when, ten years ago, food scientists showed what was possible by inserting copies of fish genes from the flounder into tomatoes, to help them withstand frost. Ventria has produced three varieties of the rice, each with a different human-origin gene that makes the plants produce one of three human proteins. Two - lactoferrin and lysozyme - are bacteria-fighting compounds found in breast milk and saliva. The genes, cultivated and copied in a laboratory to produce a synthetic version, are carried into embryonic rice plants inside bacteria.--Until now, plants with human-origin genes have been restricted to small test plots.
Ventria originally planned to grow the rice in southern Missouri but the brewer Anheuser-Busch, a huge buyer of rice, threatened to boycott the state amid concern over contamination and consumer reaction. Now the USDA, saying the rice poses "virtually no risk". has given preliminary approval for it to be grown in Kansas, which has no commercial rice farms.[U4] Ventria will also use dedicated equipment, storage and processing facilities supposed to prevent seeds from mixing with other crops. The company says food products using the rice proteins could help save many of the two million children a year who die from diarrhoea and the resulting dehydration and complications. A recent study in Peru, sponsored by Ventria, showed that children with severe diarrhoea recovered a day and a half faster if the salty fluids they were prescribed included the proteins. [U5] The rice could also be a huge money-spinner in the Western world, with parents being told it will help their children get over unpleasant stomach bugs more quickly. Ventria chief executive Scott Deeter said last night: "We have a product here that can help children get better faster."
He said any concerns about safety and contamination were "based on perception, not reality" given all the precautions the company was taking. Mr Deeter said production in plants was far cheaper than other methods, which should help make the therapy affordable in the developing world. He said: "Plants are phenomenal factories. Our raw materials are the sun, soil and water."
Serrapeptase is known in several other names such as serralysin, serratiapeptase, serratia peptidase, serratio peptidase, or serrapeptidase and is derived from the microorganism called Serratiopeptidase which is found present in the intestines of silkworm which allows the emerging moth to dissolve its cocoon. Serrapeptase is produced by purification from culture of Serratia E-15 bacteria.
It is an enzyme that eats or digests non-living tissue, blood clots, cysts, arterial plaque, inflammation, internal scar tissue as well as help with new external scars by either converting it into amino acids or excreted in the normal manner. Here are a few uses for Serrapeptase:
As a natural solution to pain & inflammation:
With Serrapeptase, chronic inflammation can be resolved or minimized in a natural and balanced way. Symptoms of inflammation disappear within 1 to 2 weeks but health practitioners normally recommend administration for up to 4 weeks to reassess the condition.
As a natural alternative to NSAIDs:
Since the discovery of Serrapeptase and its wonderful healing properties with inflammation, it has become the favored choice compared to salicylates, ibuprofen and the more potent NSAIDs. Because Serrapeptase is naturally occurring, there fore no inhibitory effects on prostaglandins have been recorded and is devoid of gastrointestinal side effects.
As an alternative to Warfarin:
Warfarin is known for its blood thining properties that is why the proper dosage each time is sued and monitored. Serrapeptase also has blood thinning properties though not as potent as Warfarin. Many natural remedies and dietary improvements will thin the blood naturally that is why a doctor’s recommendation is always needed. Though that, blood thinning at certain levels is good as it makes the blood healthy if the blood is already too thick and the platelets are sticking together. Serrapeptase does not thin blood in an unhealthy way, rather it promotes healthy production of blood cells to stop chronic inflammation.
As treatment for arterial blockage:
Dr. Hans Neiper’s findings for serrepeptase is probably the main reason why serrapeptase is popular. Dr. Hans found that Serrapeptase has properties of treating arterial blockage in his coronary patients. It works by dissolving blood clots and shrinking varicose veins. Several of Dr. Hans’ patients who were scheduled for amputation recovered quickly through treatments of Serrapeptase. Serrapeptase is always known as a natural anti-inflammatory and as a strong protease that can dissolves the dead proteins that bind the plaque blocking the arteries.
As a natural inflammation treatment for:
Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Osteoporosis, Lupus, Diabetes, MS
Headaches and Migraines caused by inflammation
Lungs – Emphysema, Bronchitis, Pulmonary Tuberculosis, Bronchial Asthma, Cystic Fibrosis, Bronchiectasis etc
Inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s, Colitis etc
Inflammation in joints or muscles e.g. Fibromyalgia
Repetitive strain injuries
Breast Engorgement, Fibrocystic Breast Disease, Cysts
Cardiovascular Disease, Arterial Disease, Angina, Blood clots, Varicose Veins
Eye, nose and throat problems from inflammation or blocked veins – ear infections, hayfever, swollen glands, laryngitis, rhinitis, sinusitis, runny nose
Sports Injuries, traumatic swelling, post operative swellings, leg ulcers
Post operative healing

USA Moms are Demanding Raw Milk Access of FDA
The U.S. FDA and Health Canada have been working in concert on their anti-raw milk activities. Just so you know, folks aren't happy about it. Here is a peaceful civil disobedience protest being staged by moms at the FDA HQ.--Kimberly Hartke, Publicist
Press Release--October 27, 2011
"Milk and Cookies" Could Get Moms Arrested
Mothers to Break Federal Raw Milk Transport Ban
Washington DC - The beloved American tradition of milk and cookies is a crime for some mothers, according to the Farm Food Freedom Coalition, organizers of a planned civil disobedience on November 1. A US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation makes the transport of raw milk intended for human consumption across state lines illegal, even for individuals purchasing it legally in one state and carrying it into the states where they live. ---On Tuesday, November 1, 2011, a group of moms will challenge the FDA s ban on interstate transport of raw milk by picking up fresh milk in Pennsylvania, transporting it to Maryland, then distributing it, along with cookies, in front of FDA headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland at a rally from 12:00 -3:00pm.---After numerous armed federal assaults and undercover investigations on farmers, coops and buying groups that supply their raw milk, mothers across the country are disgusted with the FDA�s aggression and ready to take action to protect their families� food.---By criminalizing me for the food choices I make for my family, the FDA is effectively saying that I have no right to feed my family what I, as the parent, know is best for them,� says Suzy Provine, one of the raw milk freedom riders who chooses fresh milk for her family. �It is one thing to inform me about my choices, but the FDA goes too far by forcing what they think is best on my family.--The FDA is disrupting thousands of families' food supplies by pressuring states to restrict access to raw dairy. States like Wisconsin and California are shutting down family farms by threatening penalties and jail for farmers.
U.S. and Canadian Alliances for Raw Milk (ARMs) have announced their formation
TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA (January 10, 2010)? U.S. and Canadian Alliances for Raw Milk (ARMs) have announced their formation. These Alliances for Raw Milk (US ARM and Canadian ARM) and Family Farm and Food Freedom are to promote connections between natural farmers and dairies and families who want fresh, wholesome and healthy natural food choices based on their nutritional education.--The ARMs and their members have declared they have the right and freedom to choose the foods they deem to maintain and restore their health and the right to farm their own land and trade/share the produce with others. The Alliances also come at a time of unwarranted and rapidly increasing legal, regulatory and enforcement actions by state, provincial and federal agencies against small natural, sustainable and organic farms and food operations, especially in the dairy arena.---The Canadian ARM is already organized in Ontario and British Columbia. In the U.S. the states of Wisconsin and Ohio are well underway with thousands of members and more states are pending. Sources in major U.S. raw milk groups say there is strong interest for the EU and Australia and India to join forces in the Alliance.--Internationally known Michael Schmidt, co-director of Canadian ARM told the Journal that he wishes to communicate to the new Alliances and to all farmers and consumers of local, fresh food that:
Forming local state, federal and international alliances of concerned individuals is of utmost importance. What has to be burning in our soul, is the urge to be free and the determination not to be returned to a modern form of slavery. Blinded by wealth, comfort and convenience we are in grave danger of unconsciously consenting to the takeover of our well being by Government.This battle about raw milk is a battle about food freedom and our individual rights.This is not an isolated battle, this is a global issue beyond our imagination.
Michael Schmidt, a Canadian degreed biodynamic dairy farmer and teacher has become a well-known North American icon in the food freedom battle. Schmidt owns Glencolton Farms and got arrested this summer again at raw milk Dumpsite 41. His farm was raided by the Ministry of Health and police by 20 armed guards ? holding him as a prisoner in his own house for an entire day three years ago ? taking all the milk products to the city dump. This is the latest in a series of harassments that date back since 1994. He faces a $50,000 fine and imprisonment on January 21. Schmidt is charged for his disobedience for three years of court orders to make him stop providing raw milk to friends and family who actually own the cows he cares for.--At a court and rally right before Christmas in Viroqua, WI, Michael Badnarik, a Libertarian Presidential candidate in 2004 and considered a constitutional scholar and statesman, declared that nowhere is there in laws or constitutions that governments must tell us what we can or cannot eat. Who owns our bodies? We do.!!! That event led to the formation of the Wisconsin ARM.---Kaythlene Pirtle, a well-known Chicago musician, author and motivational speaker on nutrition told the Journal,
The new unified Alliances and many new raw milk alliances that are beginning to form around the world are voicing a universal outcry of citizens that are saying, We, as human beings on this planet earth, demand the freedom and basic right to choose what kind of food we purchase and eat for ourselves and our families. We will not compromise our lives and health by eating the substandard food produced by a broken profit-driven, government-corporate controlled food system whose only concern is making sure their pockets are lined with money.
Kurtis Staven, an Alliance coordinator and dairy farmer in British Columbia told the Journal of the dairy farmers concerns there:
At this point in history, when more people are becoming aware of the foods they eat and the consequences of those actions, there appears to be a political backlash as the guise of food safety is revealed as being geared toward supporting the major agri-business players. We can no longer sit idle and watch our inherent rights be cast aside in favor of corporate profits.!!!
According to one Alliance member interviewed, who did not want his name disclosed, said: People are getting fed up with the government/corporate partnerships in their kitchens and dictating what healthy is and feeding so much nutritional, health and food safety misinformation and disinformation to the general public.-The inside environmental health regulatory specialist says It is no longer a debate of the health benefits of clean natural milk; that has been settled for a long time. All these people seem to be saying is they want the freedom to eat and farm like grandma and grandpa did without guilt or fear of government intrusion. Now it is a battle over civil rights and basic freedoms .---The first co-sponsored event of the Alliances, along with other groups, will be in Ontario at the court judgments and rally for Michael Schmidt on January 21. Anyone can attend and for more information and to RSVP go to the event posting.---Michael Schmidt, also had this to say concerning the groups and alliances that are forming:
This is the chance to return to our fundamental values. This is a battle of individuals uniting to preserve what our children and grand children expect us to do. We battle not for us, we carry the burden of responsibility for the future, we carry the future of our children.
Farmers and consumers can freely join the U.S. Alliance for Raw Milk and Canadian Alliances for Raw Milk and several state/provincial ARMs at their internet locations. There, connections can be made with natural farms and food, educational events and upcoming rallies and court proceedings. More information will be disseminated at meetings and events on the local levels.

Starving Farmer's Strength Fades As He Awaits Meeting With Premiere
Please write, fax, snail mail, and telephone again to the contacts below. Send follow up letters and/or fax, phone and keep demanding a response. Remember a squeaky wheel gets attention. Continue to be persistent!
Supporters of Michael Schmidt, the beleaguered dairy farmer are in disbelief that Dalton McGuinty entered another weekend without a response to the many pleas for a meeting to take place. Could it be that not enough attention is being brought to the issue by the media? Please consider covering this story. Here, in Michael's own words is where things stand, now.--Kimberly Hartke
Michael interviews Michael
M: Let me begin with the question everybody is asking and wanting to know; How are you?
Michael: I am surprised how long a body can go without physical nourishment.
I am surprised that I am still able to do certain things at the farm. At the same time I begin to realize that I have reached my limit. My body is not coping anymore.
M. Are you seeing a doctor?
Michael: Yes I do, I am in fact with two doctors who are very concerned and trying to help at least with monitoring the situation. -The biggest concern is, that apparently I had a mild heart attack sometime in the last 6 months and that does not help in my current condition.
M. Are you worried?
Michael: I said it before: I am not worried about me, I am worried about my family and the farm in case we cannot get this current stalemate resolved.
M. Let me ask you straight forward; why are you so determined to continue your hunger strike considering the risk that Dalton McGuinty might ignore your request.
Michael: One needs to understand that I did not enter this hunger strike to wiggle out when things do not go my way. I made a very conscious decision. The request to meet the Premier in order to start a dialogue at the top, is not too much to ask.
17 years of trying to enter into a serious dialogue with all parties concerned has resulted in nothing. Instead we had repeated raids, many many charges and court proceedings, as we speak they continue to this day to accumulate, and the Government keeps issuing press statements how dangerous and fatal the consumption of raw milk is. This is a stand off which is very serious and will have tremendous consequences across North America if the Premier ignores this simple request. This is not a political power play , or a publicity stunt. This is about our small farmers, about people who need healthy food, and parents who care about their children.
M: Why do you say North America?
Michael? Freedom of Choice as it relates to food is becoming a major issue across this Continent. What happens in Canada happens also in the United States. During my travels, in the last 5 years I have seen devastated families, crying mothers, helpless farmers and ruined farms as a result of these violent attacks. This is as urgent south of the border as it is here. I do not think that the majority of people and politicians have yet grasped the enormity of this situation. Farmers are slaves once again, full of fear and have no means to defend themselves if Government decides to take them down only because they do not conform. It is heartbreaking to say the least.
M: Are we looking here at another 1% reality?
Michael: Indeed we do. If you consider that not even 100 years ago 70% percent of the population was actively involved in farming. Today it is less than 2 percent with no vision or option left. Those who look at new models like cow sharing are raided, prosecuted, threatened and bankrupted.
All they try to do is, to provide food people want to eat.
M. You are leaving on Monday to go to Washington and then to Vancouver? Are you able to endure this stress under you current condition?
Michael: I made a commitment to my friends which I hopefully can keep. They asked me to speak at a major raw milk rally at the FDA headquarter close to Washington. Mothers with children will cross state lines with raw milk which is illegal in order to expose these draconian anti raw milk laws. The FDA has been more and more in the forefront to take down non conforming farmers. With Vancouver I had no choice, because of the contempt of court charges regarding my involvement in the cow share operation in Chilliwack BC. As well there will be a major raw milk rally on November 2. How will I manage this? I wonder myself, will see. Sometimes there are other forces at work supporting your body.
M. Your situation has effected a lot of people.--You helped other farmers to start very successful cow share operations in Ontario, you had at least four cow share colleges and the demand for raw milk keeps increasing. Are you a danger to the dairy industry?
Michael? Let me make a very important point right now. I had no intend in 1994 when we got raided the first time, to work outside the current system of supply management. I met with the Milk Marketing Board, I proposed to the different Ministers in charge to adopt the British model of a dual quota system where farmers and consumers have a choice to either produce or consume raw milk or pasteurized milk. My opinion has since then changed drastically; supply management was good and may be necessary but has in it's current form outlived it's purpose. It has become almost an elite club which turns farmers against farmers. Yes they are very afraid of that their industry is on the way out as result of my continued stand on food freedom. It is sad how much misinformation about my intentions is spread and I have to say that they act too often in a very underhanded way to protect their turf. In reality we are no danger to them at all. Those who seek raw milk have given up drinking pasteurized milk long ago. They are part of the yearly loss in milk consumption as reported by many industry statistics.
The dairy industry is it's own enemy and in fact helps building the raw milk demand. -I wonder if they are afraid that people might find out the truth about conventionally produced and processed dairy products.
M. Let's get back to the core question. What will make you stop your hunger strike?
Michael: As I said the window of opportunity is closing more and more, but the chance for true miracles is there when you are open for it. I have to meet with Dalton McGuinty to start the dialogue in order to stop my hunger strike. The are four scenarios as I see them at this moment;
1. Dalton McGuinty forgets his political chess game and agrees to a face to face meeting.---I will gladly walk into his office for a meeting on a very personal level with an attempt to listen and understand each other. I am calling this "breaking down unnecessary barriers" for a better understanding.
2. Dalton McGuinty keeps listening to his advisers and waits until finally after weeks and weeks of increasing public pressure he agrees. I will be likely by then in a wheel chair because of the lengthy hunger strike. Not too late.
3. Dalton McGuinty will not act until he finally begins to understand that I am serious. He will then have to come to the farm to meet because I am to weak to travel.
4. Dalton McGuinty will choose death instead of dialogue.
M. Are you hopeful?
Michael: I am always hopeful, because I have great trust that the humanity in every person will reveal itself when challenged with grace, respect and love. McGuinty has a huge responsibility leading the Province of Ontario, but he also is a caring human being. I know that, because I met him before he became Premier and he told me so.
Michael: I will, knowing that thousands of people watching ,caring, worrying and praying for a good outcome. I always believe in the ultimate goodness of every person.

Farm-to-Fork Dinner Fiasco
By Laura Bledsoe | October 24, 2011
When an over-zealous regulator shows up at a farm dinner demanding that food be destroyed as hungry guests await, who do you call? Here's Laura's account written as a letter to her guests who had come to Quail Hollow Farm expecting a meal of foods harvested from local small family farms.---This incident shows the value of the 24/7 legal hotline for farmers like Laura who need help...even on a Friday night! A member benefit like the hotline is available thanks to the financial support of the many FTCLDF members and donors.
Dearest Guests, (You have all become dear to us!)
What an evening we had this last Friday night! It had all the makings of a really great novel: drama, suspense, anticipation, crisis, heroic efforts, villains and victors, resolution and a happy ending. --The evening was everything I had dreamed and hoped it would be. The weather was perfect, the farm was filled with friends and guests roaming around talking about organic, sustainable farming practices. Our young interns were teaching and sharing their passion for farming and their role in it. (A high hope for our future!) The pig didn’t get loose.
Our guests were excited to spend an evening together. The food was prepared exquisitely. The long dinner table, under the direction of dear friends, was absolutely stunningly beautiful. The music was superb. The stars were bright and life was really good.
And then, …for a few moments, it felt like the rug was pulled out from underneath us and my wonderful world came crashing down. As guests were mingling, finishing tours of the farm, and while the first course of the meal was being prepared and ready to be sent out, a Southern Nevada Health District employee came for an inspection.--Because this was a gathering of people invited to our farm for dinner, I had no idea that the Health Department would become involved. I received a phone call from them two days before the event informing me that because this was a “public event” (I would like to know what is the definition of “public” and “private”) we would be required to apply for a “special use permit”. --If we did not do so immediately, we would be charged a ridiculous fine. Stunned, we immediately complied. ---
We were in the middle of our harvest day for our CSA shares, a very busy time for us, but Monte immediately left to comply with the demand and filled out the required paper work and paid for the fee. (Did I mention that we live in Overton, nowhere near a Health Department office?) Paper work now in order, he was informed that we would not actually be given the permit until an inspector came to check it all out. --She came literally while our guests were arriving! In order to overcome any trouble with the Health Department of cooking on the premises, most of the food was prepared in a certified kitchen in Las Vegas; and to further remove any doubt, we rented a certified kitchen trailer to be here on the farm for the preparation of the meals. The inspector, Mary Oaks, clearly not the one in charge of the inspection as she was constantly on the phone with her superior Susan somebody who was calling all the shots from who knows where. Susan deemed our food unfit for consumption and demanded that we call off the event because:
1. Some of the prepared food packages did not have labels on them. (The code actually allows for this if it is to be consumed within 72 hours.)
2. Some of the meat was not USDA certified. (Did I mention that this was a farm to fork meal?)
3. Some of the food that was prepared in advance was not up to temperature at the time of inspection. (It was being prepared to be brought to proper temperature for serving when the inspection occurred.)
4. Even the vegetables prepared in advance had to be thrown out because they were cut and were then considered a “bio-hazard”.
5. We did not have receipts for our food. (Reminder! This food came from farms not from the supermarket! I have talked with several chefs who have said that in all their years cooking they have never been asked for receipts.)
At this time Monte, trying to reason with Susan to find a possible solution for the problem, suggested turning this event from a “public” event to a “private” event by allowing the guests to become part of our farm club, thus eliminating any jurisdiction or responsibility on their part. This idea infuriated Susan and threatened that if we did not comply the police would be called and personally escort our guests off the property. This is not the vision of the evening we had in mind! So regretfully, again we complied. --The only way to keep our guests on the property was to destroy the food. --I can’t tell you how sick to my stomach I was watching that first dish of Mint Lamb Meatballs hit the bottom of the unsanitized trash can. --Here we were with guests who had paid in advance and had come from long distances away anticipating a wonderful dining experience, waiting for dinner while we were behind the kitchen curtain throwing it away! I know of the hours and labor that went into the preparation of that food. We asked the inspector if we could save the food for a private family event that we were having the next day. (A personal family choice to use our own food.) We were denied and she was insulted that we would even consider endangering our families health. I assured her that I had complete faith and trust in Giovanni our chef and the food that was prepared, (obviously, or I wouldn’t be wanting to serve it to our guests). I then asked if we couldn’t feed the food to our “public guests” or even to our private family, then at least let us feed it to our pigs. (I think it should be a criminal action to waste any resource of the land. Being dedicated to our organic farm, we are forever looking for good inputs into our compost and soil and good food that can be fed to our animals. The animals and compost pile always get our left over garden surplus and food. We truly are trying to be as sustainable as possible.)
Again, a call to Susan and another negative response. Okay, so let me get this right. So the food that was raised here on our farm and selected and gathered from familiar local sources, cooked and prepared with skill and love was even unfit to feed to my pigs!?! Who gave them the right to tell me what I feed my animals? Not only were we denied the use of the food for any purpose, to ensure that it truly was unfit for feed of any kind we were again threatened with police action if we did not only throw the food in the trash, but then to add insult to injury, we were ordered to pour bleach on it. [U1] Now the food is also unfit for compost as I would be negligent to allow any little critters to nibble on it while it was composting and ingest that bleach resulting in a horrible death. Literally hundreds of pounds of food was good for nothing but adding to our ever increasing land fill! --At some point in all of this turmoil Monte reminded me that I had the emergency phone number for the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) on our refrigerator. I put it there never really believing that I would ever have to use it. We became members of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund several years ago as a protection for us, but mostly to add support to other farmers battling against the oppressive legal actions taken against the small farmers trying to produce good wholesome food without government intrusion.--The local, sustainable food battle is being waged all across America! May I mention that not one battle has been brought on because of any illness to the patrons of these farms! The battles are started by government officials swooping down on farms and farmers like SWAT teams confiscating not only the wholesome food items produced but even their farm equipment! Some of them actually wearing HAZMAT suits as if they were walking into a nuclear meltdown! I have personally listened to some of their heart wrenching stories and have continued to follow them through the FTCLDF’s updates. Well, I made the call, told my story and within a short period of time received a phone call back from the FTCLDF’s General Counsel, Gary Cox. When told the story, he simply suggested that we apply our fundamental constitutional right to be protected against “unlawful search and seizure.” I simply had to ask Mary two questions. “Do you have a search warrant?” “Do you have an arrest warrant?” With the answers being “No[U2] ”, I politely and very simply asked her to leave our property. As simple as that! She had no alternative, no higher power, no choice whatsoever but to now comply with my desire. She left in a huff making a scene shouting that she was calling the police. She left no paperwork, no Cease and Desist order, no record of any kind that implicated us for one thing, (we had complied to all their orders) only empty threats and a couple of trash cans full of defiled food. I will get back to “the inspector” and her threats shortly. Let’s get to where it really gets good. --While I am on the verge of a literal breakdown, Monte and Gio get creative. All right, we have just thrown all of this food away, we can’t do this, we can’t do that, what CAN we do? Well, we have a vegetable farm and we do have fresh vegetables. (By the way, we were denied even using our fresh vegetables until I informed our inspector that I do have a Producers Certificate from the Nevada Department of Agriculture allowing us to sell our vegetables and other farm products at the Farmers Market. Much of our produce has gone to some of the very finest restaurants in Las Vegas and St. George.)--The wind taken out of the inspector's sails, Gio and his crew got cookin’. It just so happened that we had a cooled trailer full of vegetables ready to be taken to market the following day. Monte hooked on to the trailer and backed it up right next to the kitchen. Our interns who were there to greet and serve now got to work with lamp oil and began harvesting anew. Knives were chopping, pots of pasta and rice from our food storage were steaming, our bonfire was now turned into a grill and literal miracles were happening before our eyes! --In the meantime, Monte and I had to break the news to our guests. Rather than go into the details here, you can see the video footage on Mark Bowers and Kiki Kalor’s (our friends and guests) website at: http://www.reallyvegasphoto.com/Events/CSA-Farm-Government-Inspection/19707296_v2zFML#1546717636_dJJDZjw ----We explained the situation, offered anyone interested a full refund, and told them that if they chose to stay their dinner was now literally being prepared fresh, as just now being harvested. The reaction of our guests was the most sobering and inspirational experience of the evening. In an instant we were bonded together. They were, of course, out-raged at the lack of choice they were given in their meal. Out-raged at the arrogance of coming to a farm dinner and being required to use only USDA (government inspected) meats. Outraged at the heavy handedness of the Health Department into their lives. Then there was the most tremendous outpouring of love and support. One of our guests, Marty Keach, informed us that he was an attorney and as appalled as everyone else offered his support and counsel if need be, even if it be to the Supreme Court. He was a great comfort in a tense time. With their approval, Giovanni and crew got cooking and the evening then truly began. The atmosphere turned from tense and angry to loving and supportive. As soon as I heard my brother Steve sit down and begin strumming his guitar, I knew something special was happening. Paid guests volunteered their services. Chef Shawn Wallace, a guest, joined Gio and his team his knife flying through the eggplant and squash. Wendy and Thierry Pressyler and so many that I am not even aware of, were helping to grill and transport dishes. Jason and Chrissy Doolen offered to run quick errands. Jeanne Frost, a server for the Wynn hotel, didn’t take a seat and began serving her fellow guests. Before long we were seated at the beautiful table and the most incredible dishes began coming forth. It was literally “loaves and fishes” appearing before our very eyes! We broke bread together, we laughed, we talked, we shared stories, we came together in the most marvelous way. Now this is what I had dreamed, only more marvelous than I could have ever imagined! The sky being bright with glittering stars, we had the telescopes out and invited any guests who desired to look into our starry heaven. While we were looking into the heavens, heaven was looking down upon us! I can’t tell you the number of times I have felt the hand of providence helping us in the work of this farm.
As hard and demanding as this work is, I KNOW that this is what we are meant to do. I KNOW that it is imperative that we stand up for our food choices.
I KNOW that local, organic, sustainable food produced by ourselves or by small family, local farms is indispensible to the health and well-being of our families and our communities now and in the future! If this work were not so vitally important, the “evil forces” would not be working so hard to pull it down.
We were victorious, we will be victorious, we must be! Our grandchildren’s future is at stake! ---Back to the inspector. She did call the police. You must remember that we live in a small town. We know these officers. They responded to the call dutifully but were desperately trying to figure out why they had been called. Never in all of their experience had they ever received a call like this. Mary, the inspector, demanded that they give us a citation. The officer in charge said that she was to give us the citation, she responded that no, they were to give us the citation, which they then asked her for what violation. Even with the help of her superior on the phone she could not give them a reason. They asked her to leave which she did. The police were very kind and apologetic for the intrusion. All of this was done without fanfare and out of sight of our guests. The police officers are commended for their professionalism! Now that we have come to the last chapter of our novel, I realize that it ends with a cliff-hanger. As happy as the ending was, it isn’t “happily ever after” yet. This will remain to be seen in the ensuing days, weeks and even years ahead. --Tom Collins, our County Commissioner, furious by the events that took place, having formerly been a board member for the Southern Nevada Health District is putting together a meeting with himself, the current board members and ourselves to make sense of all this mess.---As so many of you have related verbally and through emails your desire to help and be involved, we will keep you informed as events take place. I feel that we have been compelled to truly become active participants in the ongoing battle over our food choices. This is just one small incident that brings to our awareness how fragile our freedoms are. We are now ready to join the fight! --We would encourage all of you who can to contribute and to become a member of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund. They are not only fighting for the farmers, they are fighting for the consumers to have the right to choose. You can find them at farmtoconsumer.org --As I close, I am reminded of the passage written so forcefully by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence: “He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.” -The same battle continues. I pray the result of the battle will be the same, that we have been “endowed by our Creator with … life and liber
I. In nearly 40 years, millions of people drank over 3 billion glasses of Alta Dena Dairy raw milk and there was not one epidemic, not one proved case of foodborne illness because of it.
II. Raw milk produced under gross conditions has not been proved to be the cause of an epidemic. No one been maimed by drinking raw milk. (p. 14-17.) Until 1950, raw milk commonly contained bacterial counts of 3 million ml and 200 ml pathogens, compared to 10,000 ml and 10 ml pathogens now, and there were no epidemics that proved to be caused by raw milk, proving that raw milk is not harmful when containing many pathogens (p. 15, ¶ 2-3) even when used as a preservative for raw meat (p. 21).
III. A review the cases DHS cited in their Report, p. 4, shows a total of 156 cases from 1973 until 1992, but no outbreaks or epidemics attributed to raw milk. Let's say that that figure was valid, although it is not, as explained above: 156 cases ¸ 19 years = 5.6 cases each year attributed to raw milk. That is the lowest incidence of any animal product produced. However, there is extensive evidence showing that pasteurization is a great health risk to the public, having caused numerous epidemics. One pasteurized-milk epidemic involved 200 people, another 468 people, another 1,492, another 16,284, another 17,000, and another 197,000 people. In each incident the product was from a single source producer. In the years 1978-1997 there were 232,485 people who suffered due to outbreaks from pasteurized milk. (p. 5-7.) If we were to disregard all of the other outbreaks from pasteurized milk and consider only those listed on pages 5-8, we have: 232,485 cases ¸ 19 years = 12,236 people effected each year from bacteria in pasteurized milk. In almost all cases, CDC reported that investigation showed proper pasteurization. CDC's figures and CDC's conclusion that " pasteurization provides assurances against infection", are contradictory and untrustworthy. Considering that CDC attributed only 4% of foodborne illness to milk consumed in the same bulk as other foods, it is the safest product to consume and does not merit the prejudice that it receives. But as the facts state, pasteurized milk has caused 2,185 times more Foodborne illness than was attributed to raw milk.
IV. The decline in raw milk consumption met with a dramatic increase in Salmonella illness, . It could be reasonably argued that the deprivation of raw milk to the public resulted in a loss of natural immunity to bacteria and more people succumbed, and continue to succumb, to bacterial illness. The ill effects to cultural groups from loss of raw milk and allergies to pasteurized milk has been repeatedly studied and confirmed.
Ø Strains of bacteria have become immune to antibacterial agents and humans are becoming more susceptible to bacteria illness. (p. 30, ¶ 6.) Science has proved that humans become immune to bacteria to which they are exposed. Legally and morally, it would be correct to allow people to develop or maintain natural immunity by ingesting them in food-form, especially those who are considered "high risk". People who buy raw milk are aware that there may be pathogens within it by the Government warning label.
Ø There has been no proof that feeding or contact with raw milk is unsafe or dangerous to infants and children , nor to the "high risk" groups defined by health departments. We are not saying that food-poisoning does not exist. We have no evidence that raw milk has proved to cause any illness in any children and other "at high risk" individuals. Evidence exists that infants and children thrive on raw milk. (p. xx, and Exh. L.) Illnesses in infants have been treated successfully with raw milk for centuries in hospitals and clinics. (p.16-17.) Raw milk reduced infant deaths in hospital by 94%.

Dr. Pottenger elaborated on malnourishment caused by pasteurized dairy
"Can human infants be born of mothers who are deficient, and yet attain a fair degree of skeletal development if given a proper raw milk supply? ,The three infants were born of mothers known to be hypothyroid. Prior to the birth of the infants shown, all three mothers had given birth to children within three years. Each of the previous children was asthmatic, showed infantile rickets, and possessed poor skeletal development. The first child shown in Figure 4 [healthiest-looking] was breast fed from birth, with the mother living under excellent health-promoting conditions. The second child was on powdered milk for four weeks, and on raw certified milk after that without cod-liver oil or orange juice. Both the first and second child began supplemental feedings when they were about five months old and were very healthy babies. The third baby was always sickly and had been on formulae since birth. These formulae included powdered milk, pasteurized milk, boiled milk, boiled certified milk and canned milk. She had suffered from severe gastric distress during her entire infancy and when eight months old she developed asthma. She is very small though her parents are of larger build.
Steinman studied rats. The decay process in rats' teeth is biologically identical to that in human teeth. He divided his rats into several groups. The control group received a standard nutritious rat chow made by the Purina Company. Steinman discovered that these rats would average less than one cavity for their entire lifetime. The second group received a very heavy refined sugar diet. Although they grew faster than the Purina rats, they averaged 5.6 cavities per rat. The third group was fed "homogenized Grade A pasteurized milk" and they had almost twice as many cavities as the sugar-fed group - 9.4 cavities per animal. Dr. Weston Price in Nutrition and Human Degeneration proved fifty years ago what Steinman showed in 1963: Processed milk leads to disease and premature death. Nizel of Tufts University reported that decayed teeth were four times more common in pasteurized milk-fed babies as opposed to breast-fed babies. Dr. Weston Price, D D.S., proved that processed food, such as pasteurized milk, causes poor development of the facial bones.
The pituitary hormone, TSH, stimulates the thyroid gland. If minute amounts of this pituitary hormone were absorbed daily from unbalanced pasteurized milk, depression of the thyroid gland could eventually result. Low thyroid function has become extremely common in the USA. Some experts estimate that fifty percent of the people over fifty years of age have some degree of low functioning thyroid. Another hormone from the pituitary, ADH, absorbed regularly from pasteurized milk causes water retention. ACTH, a powerful adrenal stimulator, absorbed regularly from pasteurized milk contributes to everything from diabetes and hypertension to Addison's Disease (adrenal exhaustion), and acne. Several cancers, such as ovarian cancer, have been linked to the consumption of pasteurized dairy products. According to a study by Daniel Cramer, M.D., and colleagues at Harvard, pasteurized dairy-product consumption affects a woman's ovaries. Some women have particularly low levels of certain enzymes, and when they consume processed dairy products on a regular basis, their risk of ovarian cancer can triple that of other women.
Pasteurized milk is touted for preventing osteoporosis, yet clinical research shows otherwise. The Harvard Nurses' Health Study, 1997, which followed more than 75,000 women for 12 years, showed no protective effect of increased processed-milk consumption on fracture risk.  In fact, increased intake of calcium from pasteurized dairy products was associated with a higher fracture risk. An Australian study showed the same results. Additionally, other studies have found no protective effect of pasteurized dairy calcium on bone.
BENEFITS OF RAW MILK
The British journal The Lancet reported, "Resistance to tuberculosis increased in children fed raw milk instead of pasteurized, to the point that in five years only one case of pulmonary TB had developed, whereas in the previous five years, when children had been given pasteurized milk, 14 cases of pulmonary TB had developed." Raw milk also contains an anti-viral agent. In 1997, British studies have shown that some mysterious substance in the aqueous portion of the raw milk, below the cream layer, works against viral infections. Formula and boiled milk do not contain this virus-fighting agent. The enzyme lipase aids in the digestion of fats. It is plentiful in raw milk but destroyed by pasteurization. One of the most remarkable and important discoveries in medicine, the incredible healing power of fresh raw milk, goes unnoticed by the medical profession. No one knows who first used raw milk as a therapeutic agent, probably the Egyptians. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, prescribed raw milk for tuberculosis. Dr. J.E. Crewe, from the Mayo Foundation, Rochester, Minnesota, presented his findings on the therapeutic uses of raw milk before the Minnesota State Medical Society in 1923. Although Dr. Crewe's experiments were on the feeding of raw milk for disease, the key, he injects, is not milk but rawmilk. Dr. Crewe reported, "While milk is widely used and recommended as an article of diet, it is seldom used by regular physicians exclusively as an agent in the treatment of disease. For fifteen years I have employed the so-called [raw] milk treatment in various diseases ... the results obtained in various types of illnesses have been so uniformly excellent that one's conception of disease and its alleviation is necessarily modified."  His report was met with apathy and indifference, saying, "The method itself is so simple that it does not greatly interest medical men. The fact that many diseases are treated and successful results [ignored], leads almost to disrespect." Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland found that raw cows milk contains 2½ times more of the enzyme lgG than pasteurized milk. This important enzyme inhibits rotavirus organisms that cause diarrhea in infants. It has been known since the earliest days of husbandry that the newborn calf thrives on raw milk. Calves fed pasteurized milk since birth die by the third month. Francis Pottenger, M.D. proved there is deficiency disease, similar to Vitamin C deficiency (scurvy) that can be cured by giving an endocrine product that contains no Vitamin C. He proved that raw milk has this endocrine nutrient and pasteurized milk does not. He proved that raw milk reversed and prevented scurvy. The Bahimas of Africa drink six pints a day. In fact, they eat little else. This is also true of the Nuers of the Upper Nile, the Todas, the Kazaks, and the Hottentots. They all live healthfully Fermented raw milk has been shown to retard tumor growth and decrease the activity of alkylating agents associated stomach cancer.
Recipe for Raw Milk
Use 2 cups of raw milk add 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of red wine ( your choice) 2 drops of propolis and cinnamon extract 1/2 teaspoon blend and then proceed to drink you can add a potato to this as a meal baked or cooked in oil and water mixed with herbs....this combo can hold you fro up to eight hours, maintaining strength no desire to eat. Sugar levels maintain and maintain for a long period of time, protein a uptake is almost felt immediately and fat is decreased off the body as a result of the lipase and CLA content

Food Chemical Regulations Rely Heavily On Industry Self-Policing and Lack Transparency
ScienceDaily (Oct. 26, 2011) — Safety decisions concerning one-third of the more than 10,000 substances that may be added to human food were made by food manufacturers and a trade association without review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), according to an analysis spearheaded by the Pew Health Group.--The report, published in the peer-reviewed journal Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety, illustrates potential problems with the U.S. food additive regulatory program.---"Congress established our food additive regulatory program more than 50 years ago, and it does not stand up well to scrutiny based on today's standards of science and public transparency," said Tom Neltner, Food Additives Project director in the Pew Health Group.--The research also found that the FDA developed an expedited process in the mid-1990's that essentially eliminated the opportunity for public involvement in decision making prior to FDA's safety determination. This shift doubled the rate of industry requests for FDA review. In contrast, standard operating procedure for other federal regulatory decisions regarding drug, workplace, and environmental safety requires public notice and an opportunity to comment.---"While the shift to a new regulatory process-one in which companies make safety decisions and ask FDA to confirm them-has sped up agency review, it has also bypassed the public," Neltner said. "Subjecting safety decisions to comment from competitors, academic scientists, public interest groups, and the general public can result in stronger protections for consumers. In an age of growing demand for government transparency, there is virtually no meaningful opportunity for participation in decisions about large classes of substances added to the food supply."--When Congress passed the Food Additives Amendment of 1958, it created a structure that has limited the FDA's ability to effectively regulate substances added to food because the law--Allows manufacturers to determine that the use of an additive is "generally recognized as safe" (GRAS), and then use that substance without notifying the FDA[U1] . As a result, the agency is unaware of many substances that may be added to food and lacks the ability to ensure that safety decisions were properly made. Does not require that manufacturers inform the FDA when health reports suggest new hazards associated with additives already used in food. Therefore, the agency has no access to unpublished reports and must expend limited resources sifting through published information to identify potential problems and set priorities.[U2]
In addition to the article examining the state of the food additive regulation, a piece in the same publication summarizes a workshop, co-sponsored by the Institute of Food Technologists and the journal Nature, examined how FDA evaluates the potential hazards posed by substances added to food. The two-day session, held in April 2011, brought together science and food policy experts from government, industry, academia, and public interest organizations. Issues discussed at the workshop and presented in the journal article include-The need for clear procedures to develop validated toxicological tests and regularly revise guidance documents to reflect advances in science-Opportunities to improve academic research to make it more usable for regulatory decision making and enhance coordination between federal agencies; and-Challenges to reassessing a chemical's safety after it is on the market.Both journal articles appear in the November issue of Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety. They are the first in a series of the Pew Health Group's assessments of the scientific evidence and FDA's regulatory system, evaluating whether the agency ensures chemicals added to food are safe as required by law. Future articles will consider other aspects of the scientific analysis and the law, and will provide case studies of issues raised about the FDA's food additives program. The Pew Health Group will develop policy recommendations to reduce unnecessary and hidden risks that are informed by their evaluation.--Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by Pew Charitable Trusts.
Tumors Use Sugars To Avoid Programmed Cell Death
ScienceDaily (Apr. 15, 2008) — Researchers at the Duke School of Medicine apparently have solved the riddle of why cancer cells like sugar so much, and it may be a mechanism that could lead to better cancer treatments.---Jonathan Coloff, a graduate student in Assistant Professor Jeffrey Rathmell's laboratory in the Duke Department of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology, has found that the tumor cells use glucose sugar as a way to avoid programmed cell death. They make use of a protein called Akt, which promotes glucose metabolism, which in turn regulates a family of proteins critical for cell survival, the researchers shared during an April 15 presentation at the American Association of Cancer Research Annual Meeting in San Diego.---In normal cells, growth factors regulate metabolism and cell survival. Removing these factors leads to loss of glucose uptake and metabolism and cell death. Cancer cells, however, maintain glucose metabolism and resist cell death, even when deprived of growth factors.--To study how Akt might affect these processes, Coloff and colleagues introduced a cancer-causing form of Akt called myrAkt, into cells that depend on growth factor to survive. The mutant form of Akt allowed cells to maintain glucose usage and survive even when no growth factors were present, allowing them to bypass a normal safeguard used by cells to prevent cancer development.---The death of normal cells after growth factors are removed is partly accomplished by two proteins called Mcl-1 and Puma. But the cancer-causing version of Akt prevents these two proteins from accomplishing their tasks, allowing the cell to survive when it shouldn't.---Once glucose was withdrawn from the environment, however, Akt was no longer able to maintain regulation of the key targeted proteins Mcl-1 and Puma, and the cells died.[U3] "Akt's dependence on glucose to provide an anti-cell-death signal could be a sign of metabolic addiction to glucose in cancer cells, and could give us a new avenue for a metabolic treatment of cancer," said Dr. Rathmell.---Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by Duke University Medical Center.

WI-FI on steroids
I just got off the phone from Shaw Head office in Calgary. They are in the process of rolling out wi-fi on steroids right through Vancouver and all large urban areas – a fully meshed wireless system from parks to undergrounds – absolutely everything wi-fried – this is without any regulations, no public consultation, behind closed doors deals with businesses and local government (yes, Shaw pays for placing wi-fi routers on street lights, and in buildings). ---I am told there has been no public dissension – probably because nobody knows. I thought it would be from cell towers – but no, massive routers EVERYWHERE – they are very proud. Using two frequencies – 2.45 GhZ and 5 GhZ – “Pushing the boundaries of Cisco”…… One notable study funded by US Air Force (Chou et al), found almost 4 times rates of primary cancers for rats exposed to Wi-Fi 2.45 GhZ for less than two years, and a doubling of secondary cancers. We know brain function of young people affected by Wi-Fi, we know blood brain barriers will be leaking within minutes, DNA damage, sperm and ovum damage – combine this meshed network with Smart Grid meshed network, plus cell towers exploding everywhere – sorry people – life is over as you know it. There will be NO SAFE PLACE FOR ANY LIVING THING. ---I can’t do more than I am doing –it needs to go to a larger audience and group of activists demanding health protection, environment protection, democratic rights. SHAW employees I spoke to had never heard of WHO regulations and knew nothing about radiofrequency electromagnetic fields being possible to cause human cancer, nor that Health Canada has advised reduced exposure for youth (very weak advisory, but there nonetheless). The plan is to do this in every urban centre across the province, and then Canada, starting with Vancouver – as far as I can establish – and also Victoria. Take Action Now to get this information out to people and demand a stop for public hearings, full disclosure, full signage where these routers are going to be placed – If I unwittingly was waiting for a bus stop and stood underneath one of those for 5 minutes, it would just about kill me. And that’s where they will be no doubt. ---Here’s a phone number and name for you at Shaw to contact and demand public consultation, stop it until full transparency – this is public spaces, without public input - – Chad Rumpel – 403-303-4822 – he is the one in charge of Wi-Fi (so I am told).

Papaya Extract Thwarts Growth of Cancer Cells in Lab Tests
Papaya. The humble papaya is gaining credibility in Western medicine for anticancer powers that folk cultures have recognized for generations
ScienceDaily (Mar. 10, 2010) — The humble papaya is gaining credibility in Western medicine for anticancer powers that folk cultures have recognized for generations.--University of Florida researcher Nam Dang, M.D., Ph.D., and colleagues in Japan have documented papaya's dramatic anticancer effect against a broad range of lab-grown tumors, including cancers of the cervix, breast, liver, lung and pancreas. The researchers used an extract made from dried papaya leaves, and the anticancer effects were stronger when cells received larger doses of the tea[U5] . In a paper published in the Feb. 17 issue of the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, Dang and his colleagues also documented for the first time that papaya leaf extract boosts the production of key signaling molecules called Th1-type cytokines. This regulation of the immune system, in addition to papaya's direct antitumor effect on various cancers, suggests possible therapeutic strategies that use the immune system to fight cancers. The papaya extract did not have any toxic effects on normal cells, avoiding a common and devastating consequence of many cancer therapy regimens. The success of the papaya extract in acting on cancer without toxicity is consistent with reports from indigenous populations in Australia and his native Vietnam, said Dang, a professor of medicine and medical director of the UF Shands Cancer Center Clinical Trials Office.--"Based on what I have seen and heard in a clinical setting, nobody who takes this extract experiences demonstrable toxicity; it seems like you could take it for a long time -- as long as it is effective," he said.--Researchers exposed 10 different types of cancer cell cultures to four strengths of papaya leaf extract and measured the effect after 24 hours. Papaya slowed the growth of tumors in all the cultures.--To identify the mechanism by which papaya checked the growth of the cultures, the team focused on a cell line for T lymphoma. Their results suggested that at least one of the mechanisms employed by the papaya extract is inducing cell death.--In a similar analysis, the team also looked at the effect of papaya extract on the production of antitumor molecules known as cytokines. Papaya was shown to promote the production of Th1-type cytokines, important in the regulation of the immune system. For that reason, the study findings raise the possibility of future use of papaya extract components in immune-related conditions such as inflammation, autoimmune disease and some cancers.--Bharat B. Aggarwal, Ph.D., a researcher at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, already is so convinced of papaya's restorative powers that he has a serving of the fruit every day.--"We have always known that papaya has a lot of interesting things in there," said Aggarwal, a professor in the center's department of experimental therapeutics who was not involved in the UF research. Foremost among papaya's health-promoting agents is papain, papaya's signature enzyme, which is found in both the fruit and the leaves.--"This paper has not gone too much into identifying the components responsible for the activity, which is just fine. I think that is a good beginning," Aggarwal said. Aggarwal also noted that papaya extract's success in reducing cancer in laboratory cell cultures must next be replicated in animal and human studies. "I hope Dr. Dang takes it further, because I think we need enthusiastic people like him to move it forward," Aggarwal said. Dang and a colleague have applied to patent the process to distill the papaya extract through the University of Tokyo; the next step in the research is to identify the specific compounds in the papaya extract active against the cancer cell lines. For this stage, Dang has partnered with Hendrik Luesch, Ph.D., a fellow UF Shands Cancer Center member and a professor of medicinal chemistry. Luesch is an expert in the identification and synthesis of natural products for medicinal purposes, and recently discovered a coral reef compound that inhibits cancer cell growth in cell lines.--Story Source: Adapted from materials provided by University of Florida.

Gerhard Sauer and his wife got the fright of their lives when their smart meter exploded on Monday night at their Pickering home.--“We were downstairs watching television and the hall light was on. All of a sudden it was like thunder. There was this big bang and the light went dim but didn’t go completely out. Then there was a second bang and the light went dim, but after that the light went back on,” Sauer said. --“I went to the fuse box to investigate because that is where the sound came from. Every thing looked fine but it smelt like burnt wire so we weren’t going to bed. Something was wrong and we didn’t want the house to burn down.”---Sauer tried to get hold of the hydro company but because it was after 11 p.m. the attempts were in vain and he called 911.---“It was useless to continue trying so I called 911 and it was the right thing to do. The lady called the fire department and they came to the site and saw the burnt black box and said to make sure no one touches it because they could get electrocuted,” Sauer said.[U1] “The fire department called hydro and they came and said they could fix it at my expense. The said there was nothing wrong with the meter but it was my wiring. If it was my wiring the light wouldn’t be on. I don’t have an estimate for what it is going to cost.”[U2] ---It is unclear what caused the explosion.[U3] -“I’m not an electrician by trade. It is just one of those things that happen,” said Matthew Seward, a fire inspector with the City of Pickering.

--90% of these pulses are for the mesh network maintenance (signals bouncing from homes) and only 6 pulses are for reading the meter data. This doesn’t include Home Area Network transmissions. --How about peak power figures? The PG&E electric meter transmits at 900MHz with 1 watt of transmit power. It has an antennae gain 4.0 dBi for a peak level power of 2.5 watts. That’s two and a half times more than their safety data stated. The wireless gas meters transmit between 4 and 5 times a day at 132-794 mW. --Answers provided by San Diego Gas and Electric and So Cal Gas were similar, although PG&E electric meters appear to be five times stronger, just like Sage Associates found in their study.--Southern California Edison missed the deadline to provide answers to the CPUC , but they will be posted here once they do.
Q: Does replacement of a SmartMeter with an analog meter constitute tampering?
A: “The replacement of a SmartMeter with an analog meter should not constitute illegal tampering unless it is done with the intent to prevent the device from accurately measuring electrical use. Although the disconnection of the SmartMeter prevents it from recording electrical use, if such disconnection is not done with the intent to get lower electrical rates and a working analog meter that accurately records electrical use replaces the SmartMeter , the resident should be clear of any charges of tampering. “

Rumors that dead embryos were being used as dietary supplements started to spread early last year with reports that some doctors in Shenzhen hospitals were eating dead fetuses after carrying out abortions. The doctors allegedly defended their actions by saying the embryos were good for their skin and general health.--A trend was set and soon reports circulated that doctors in the city were promoting fetuses as a human tonic. Hospital cleaning women were seen fighting each other to take the treasured human remains home. Last month, reporters from EastWeek - a sister publication of Eastern Express - went to Shenzhen to see if the rumors could be substantiated. On March 7, a reporter entered the state-run Shenzhen Heath Center for Women and Children feigning illness and asked a female doctor for a fetus. The doctor said the department was out of stock but to come again. --The next day the reporter returned at lunch time. The doctor eventually emerged from the operating theatre holding a fist size glass bottle stuffed with thumbsized fetuses. --She said: "There are 10 fetuses here, all aborted this morning. You can take them. We are a state hospital and don't charge anything. --"Normally, we doctors take them home to eat - all free. Since you don't look well, you can take them." --Not every state hospital is as generous with its dead embryos as the Health Center for Women and Children. At the Shenzhen People's Hospital, for example, the reporter was in for a surprise.
When a Ms. Yang, the head nurse, was asked for fetuses, she looked anxious and asked other staff to leave. After closing the door, she asked the undercover buyer in a low voice: "Where did you (get to) know that we sell fetuses?" --
The reporter answered: "A doctor friend in Hong Kong told me." --"Who? What is his/her name?" -- The reporter was not prepared for this line of questioning and could not come up with a name. Yang told him that fetuses were only for sale within the hospital, and were not for public purchase. She added that some staff would, however, sell the fetuses on to Hong Kong buyers.
The reporter learned that the going rate for a fetus was $10 but when the merchandise was in short supply, the price could go up to $20. But these prices are pin money compared to those set by private clinics, which are said to make a fortune selling fetuses. One chap on Bong Men Lao Street charges $300 for one fetus. The person in charge of the clinic is a man in his 60's. When he saw the ailing reporter, he offered to take an order for fetuses that had reached full-term and which, it is claimed, contain the best healing properties. When a female doctor named Yang - no relation - of Sin Hua clinic was asked whether fetuses were edible, she said emphatically: "Of course they are. They are even better than placentas. ---"
A Mr. Cheng from Hong Kong claims he has been eating fetus soup for more than six months. To begin, the man, in his 40's, would make the trip to Shenzhen frequently for business and was introduced to fetuses by friends. He says he met a number of professors and doctors in government hospitals who helped him buy the fetuses. "At first, I felt uncomfortable, but doctors said the substances in fetuses could help cure my asthma. I started taking them and gradually, the asthma disappeared," Cheng said. --Now, Cheng only eats fetuses occasionally to top up his treatment, but there was a time when he made regular cross border trips with the gruesome merchandise. "Everytime [I made the trip], I carried a Thermos flask to Shenzhen and brought the fetuses back to Hong Kong to make soup. If they gave me 20 or 30 at a time, I put them in the refrigerator. I didn't have the soup every day - it depended on the supply. ---"Usually, I washed the fetuses clean, and added ginger, orange peel and pork to make soup. After taking it for a while, I felt a lot better and my asthma disappeared. I used to take placenta, but it was not so helpful." When asked if he was concerned about the fetuses containing diseases, Cheng was dismissive. "I bought them from government hospitals. They would check the pregnant women before doing the operations and only sell them to me if there was no problem. Also, I always boil them over high heat which kills any bacteria." Although Cheng has overcome any squeamishness over eating fetus soup, he says he draw the line at consuming whole dead embryos. He also refrains from telling people of his grisly dietary habits. ---Zou Qin, 32, a woman from Hubei with the fine skin of a someone several years younger, attributes her well preserved looks to a diet of fetuses. As a doctor at the Lun Hu Clinic, Zou has carried out abortions on several hundred patients. She believes fetuses are highly nutritious and claims to have eaten more than 100 in the past six months. She pulls out a fetus specimen before a reporter and explains the selection criteria. "People normally prefer (fetuses of) young women, and even better, the first baby and a male." She adds: "They are wasted if we don't eat them. The women who receive abortions here don't want the fetuses. Also, the fetuses are already dead [when we eat them]. We don't carry out abortions just to eat the fetuses. [U1]
"Before, my sister's children were very weak. I heard that fetuses were good for your health and started taking some to my nephews," Zou says, without remorse. "I wash them with clear water until they look transparent white and then stew them. Making soup is best." But she admits there are drawbacks to this dubious delicacy. "Fetuses are very smelly and not everybody can take the stink," she said. "You can also make meat cakes by mixing fetuses with minced meat but you have to add more ginger and chives to get rid of the smell." [U2]
Hong Kong legislator Dr. Tan Siu-tong is surprised that it could be within anyone's capability to overcome the stench of a dead fetus, even if their stomachs are lined with lead. "When all the placental tissue is dead, the smell is awful and is enough to make you feel sick. It is like having a dead mouse in the house," he said. --Doctors in the territory have responded with disgust and incredulity to stories of people supplementing their diets with fetuses. Many have read articles of fetal cannibalism but none has been able to verify the reports. They are treating the issue with skepticism. Dr. Margaret Kwan, a gynecologist who until two weeks ago held the post of chief executive at the FPA, says: "This is the strangest thing I have ever heard coming out of China. I just hope it is not true."
Dr. Warren Lee, president of the Hong Kong Nutrition Association, is aware of the unsavory rumors. "Eating fetuses is a kind of traditional Chinese medicine and is deeply founded in Chinese folklore. In terms of nutrition, a fetus would be a good source of protein and fats, and there are minerals in bone. But I don't know if eating fetuses is just folklore or more than that," he says. According to Lee, it is conceivable that fetuses are rich in certain hormones that are beneficial to the adult human body, but should this be the case, the fetal matter would have to be converted into an indictable form for best results, as most hormones including the hormone for diabetes, insulin - are broken down in the digestive system before they have a chance to be absorbed by the body. --But Tang fails to understand how anyone anywhere can convince themselves "that they are just eating an organism when they are actually eating a dead body". "It may not be a formed human being, but when they think about it most people would think: 'Ugh! No, I can't eat that.' I don't think civilized people with an education could do that sort of thing." [U3] ----Dr. Wong, a Hong Kong doctor who practices Western medicine, thinks only the ignorant would eat human fetuses. He explains that fetuses contain mucoploysaccharide, which is beneficial to the metabolism, but states that it can be found in a lot of other food - Chinese doctor Chu Ho-Ting agrees that there is no place for fetuses in medicine, and suggests that it might even be unhealthy if the pregnant woman was infected by disease. ---"Most bacteria can be killed under 100 degree heat but some require 400 degrees. Some people believe eating fetuses can strengthen the immunity of the human body against diseases, but this is wrong[U4] . Although fetuses contain protein, they are not as nutritious as placenta, which contains different kinds of nutrients. But even placenta has to be taken with other Chinese herbs."
Do Aborted Babies Enhance the Flavor of the Food You Eat?
Biotech Company Uses Fetal Stem Cells to Test Food
Food companies are turning to biotechnology to test new chemicals to make food taste better. --One company, Semonyx, is testing their food ingredients using cells derived from aborted fetuses. -Pepsico, Kraft, and NestlÃ© are the biggest food brands using this company.-- Do you owe the taste of your food to aborted babies? While the question sounds ridiculous, the fact is that you might. Some companies are using stem cell lines derived from an aborted fetus to test flavor enhancers for the food that you eat every day. Although they are not actually putting aborted fetal cells into your food, they are using these cells in the laboratory to develop chemicals to make your food taste better. Some of the brands that are using this kind of testing include Pepsico, Kraft, and Nestlé. Although there are plenty of people that don't have an ethical problem with using stem cell lines to help cure disease, do we really want them to be used to develop our food? Perhaps this is another reason to eat minimally processed food.--Biotech Companies Using Stem Cells Popular food companies are working with a biotech company called Senomyx to test their foods. The goal of the testing is to find food additives to reduce the amount of MSG, salt, and sugar used in the foods that they produce. Semonyx receives money to do the research, along with royalties when foods using their ingredients are sold [U5] . The fetal stem cell line, taken from the kidney of an electively aborted baby, is used to test the biochemical reaction when exposed to the food ingredients. Although they could have used cells derived from other forms of life, they chose to use the fetal stem cells.
Companies Using this Technology
Currently, the companies that have decided to partner with Semonyx include Nestlé, Pepsico, Kraft (which included Cadbury Chocolate), and Solae. [U6] Campbell's Soup did have a partnership with this company, but they chose to break their relationships with the biotech company shortly after the pro-life group Children of God for Life sent out a press release about their involvement.
Eating Real Food
If the idea of eating foods using ingredients that were developed using fetal stem cell lines leaves a bad taste in your mouth, you can avoid buying products from the companies that are working with Semonyx. Unfortunately, this includes some of the biggest brands in the food industry. This also doesn't guarantee that other companies won't start working with Semonyx in the future in order to develop their own food ingredients. The best way to guarantee that you won't be eating food with these products is to eat real food using natural ingredients[U7] . There's no telling whether the ingredients that Semonyx develops won't be worse than the MSG, salt, and sugar that they are trying to replace. With real food, especially if they are taken from an organic source, you can guarantee that you're eating food obtained without the help of cells derived from an aborted baby.
California Recall ... Beginning of the End for Smart Meters?
The Daily Bell
PG&E BEGINS REMOVING 'SMART' METERS DUE TO HEALTH EFFECTS ... Widening Call for Immediate Return of Analogs; Disconnection of "Mesh" Wireless Network. SANTA CRUZ, CA – Just as PG&E enters the final phase of its deployment of wireless "smart" meters in California, the largest of the state's Investor Owned Utilities (IOU's) has reversed course, quietly beginning to replace the 'smart' meters of those reporting health impacts with the old trusty analog version. Consumer rights and health groups immediately seized on the news, demanding that millions of Californians unhappy with their new wireless meters get their analogs returned immediately at no cost. 'Smart' meters are new wireless utility meters being installed as part of the "smart" grid initiative, spearheaded by technology firms and backed by the Obama administration and the Department of Energy. Promises ranging from lower utility bills to enhanced renewable generation capacity have failed to materialize, with widespread reports of higher bills, privacy violations, fires and explosions, and commonly reported health impacts such as headaches, nausea, tinnitus, and heart problems associated with powerful wireless transmissions.
~ Press release from StopSmartMeters.org
Dominant Social Theme: Smart meters are very helpful for a green planet. So what's the fuss?
Free-Market Analysis: When we first wrote about these evil "Smart Meters" well over a year ago, they weren't receiving much attention. But we saw them as part of a broader plan of the Anglosphere power elite to continue their quest for control over every part of people's lives. We figured the deployment of Smart Meters would go forward for several years without much resistance but we were wrong.---The Smart Meter craze has been positioned as a subdominant social theme by the elites: There are too many people, not enough power and we need to control every aspect of our energy existence and use. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. You can see some of our articles here: "Smart Grid: Edge of the Authoritarian Wedge" and "Technocracy".---The world is swimming in energy – and oil, as a matter of fact. We've reported on the statement of one of the Forbes brothers of magazine fame that the US has enough oil domestically for centuries of use, but that discoveries and exploitation have been artificially reduced by "environmental" regulations and federal land ownership. The US fedgov owns about one-third of America's lower 48, mostly in the Midwest.
But far sooner than we figured, it seems the Smart Meter backlash has arrived. Turns out that people don't like the considerable hikes in their bills once Smart Meters are installed. Nor do they enjoy the health ramifications that are apparently involved, either. Thus we were both surprised and gratified to receive this press release from StopSmartMeters.org, detailing considerable pushback to the deployment of Smart Meters in California. Here's more from the release:
Widely disparate political groups- from members of the Green Party to the Tea Party and Occupy protesters have attacked the program, and dozens of grassroots organizations have sprouted up over the past several months to fight what they call an undemocratic, unconstitutional and dangerous assault on people in their own homes and neighborhoods. Dozens of people have been detained or arrested for peaceful civil disobedience and even simply speaking out against deployments. In California, more than 47 cities and counties have demanded a halt to installation, and a dozen local governments have passed laws prohibiting the controversial technology. The 'smart' meter issue has further angered a public already seething at the utilities over repeated gas explosions, safety breaches at nuclear reactors, and an increasingly extortionate rate structure. --Word of California's 'smart' meter nightmare has spread across the country and around the world, prompting some utilities to place smart meter plans on hold, and recently Nevada's PUC to call for investigations into the health effects and other smart meter problems. Now in a dramatic turnaround that could signal the beginning of a widespread recall of wireless 'smart' meters, on October 28th PG&E re-installed a classic spinning disc analog meter on the home of Santa Cruz, CA resident Caitlin Phillips, who had been suffering headaches and other symptoms from her 'smart' meter. The move comes in response to verbal directives from the California Public Utilities Commission President Michael Peevey, who recently told members of the public that the utility "will provide for you to go back to the analog meter if that's your choice." The CPUC has been slow to respond to thousands of ordinary citizens reporting health effects from the new meters.--When a Wellington Energy installer (contracted with PG&E) came to install a smart meter at her home, Caitlin asked the installer to get off her property and not install, because of what a neighbor had told her about possible health damage and privacy violations. "When I returned home later, I discovered a smart meter on my house. That night I awoke to severe anxiety, headache, and buzzing in my teeth, and realized the new smart meter was on the other side of the wall from my bed."
Caitlin reported her experience to PG&E and the CPUC, who both declined to rectify the situation. When the symptoms persisted, Caitlin sought the assistance of the Scotts Valley based group Stop Smart Meters! who provided an analog meter and referred her to a professional who could help her remove her 'smart' meter. As soon as the analog was installed, Caitlin's symptoms disappeared.
Frustrated and outraged about her treatment by the utility and the PUC, Caitlin travelled to San Francisco to speak at a commission meeting on Oct. 20th. About a week later, PG&E crews were at her house replacing her temporary analog meter with a brand new official PG&E analog meter. This is believed to be the first time PG&E have willingly replaced an analog meter on the home of someone suffering from health effects.
An "opt-out" proceeding overseen by an Administrative Law Judge is underway at the CA Public Utilities Commission, yet those suffering (in some cases severe) health impacts have been stuck in limbo as utilities refuse to remove the harmful meters upon request- until now.
"There are hundreds of thousands- if not millions- of people suffering in their homes from forced 'smart' meter radiation," said Joshua Hart, Director of the grassroots organization Stop Smart Meters! "The utilities and PUC's must respond promptly to all requests that analogs be returned. The alternative is that people will increasingly turn to independent professionals to remove unwanted 'smart' meters from their homes, a reasonable action we assert is within our legal rights. Protecting your family's health is not tampering." PG&E and other utilities have also been responding to health complaints by replacing wireless 'smart' meters with digital meters that are "wireless-ready." These digital meters have been associated with health problems from "dirty electricity" frequencies that pass into a home via the electrical wiring. These "trojan horse" meters have been roundly rejected by those who report continuing health impacts after installation. Susan Brinchman, Director of San Diego based Center for Electrosmog Prevention. said "At this point, the burden of responsibility is on the utilities to demonstrate that any new meter they want to install on our homes is safe. Communities have the right to retain analog meters at no extra charge.
Smart Meters are an outgrowth of M. King Hubbert and the so-called Technocracy movement that was prominent in the mid-20th century. Hubbert is, of course, also the inventor of the concept of "Peak Oil" – the idea that oil production will at some point peak and then gradually begin to subside.
Is it any coincidence that Hubbert, a believer in the Platonic idea of the rule by a few wise men over the many, also invented the ridiculous notion of Peak Oil? It is evident and obvious to anyone who bothers to give even a few minutes of study to the issue that the Anglosphere power elite has been plotting this gambit for nearly a century now.
Peak Oil was supposed to be the problem. Smart Meters were supposed to be the solution. The idea was to figure out exactly what people were doing as regards their energy habits and then tax them and regulate them.
The idea that a handful of men can force billions to do their bidding is a fairly ridiculous notion in our view. As their dominant social themes have proven less effective in the 21st century, the elites have turned to violence and war. Yet violence is not only an ineffective way of moving society in a certain direction, it is an unpredictable one.
The Internet Reformation is a wonderful thing. Ten or fifteen years ago, a movement to dump Smart Meters would likely never have seen the light of day. There would have been no way to disseminate the information even if one could have concluded that Smart Meters were not what the authorities were claiming they were.
Conclusion: That a backlash against Smart Meters could have come so soon is further proof of our observation regarding the new communication technology: It is a process, not an episode.

Poll- Do we need a clearer definition of ‘natural’?
In the world of food marketing, perception is everything. Consumers want foods that sound wholesome, friendly, and above all “natural” – although they are rarely able to articulate what this means. -- And they are not alone. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has yet to establish a formal definition for the term 'natural' on food labels but follows a 1993 policy that states: “[FDA] has not objected to the use of the term [natural] on food labels provided it is used in a manner that is truthful and not misleading and the product does not contain added color, artificial flavors or synthetic substances.” --- But this has not cleared everything up. What about modified starch, partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, ingredients extracted with organic solvents, high fructose corn syrup or genetically engineered foods or a string of other substances that can be found on the ‘unacceptable ingredients’ lists of companies such as Whole Foods Market? [U8] Many people have argued persuasively that trying to define natural is a fool’s errand. But others believe it should be pinned down regardless because if two companies are using the same term on their food labels, it should mean the same thing. What do you think? Do we need a more precise definition of 'natural' to ensure it is used more consistently in food labeling and marketing? -- And if so, who should drive this initiative? The FDA? Or industry associations such as the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the Food Marketing Institute, or the Natural Products Association (which has already developed a Natural Seal certification scheme for home and personal care and is working on a similar initiative for foods)? [U9]
Apple/Juniper Berry/ Cinnamon Powder sauce
Take several apples and peel and add to a blender then add 1-2 tablespoons of juniper berry and add either 3 – 3 inch slices or 2-3 tablespoon of the powder cinnamon—blend altogether and turn to a much or a purree or sauce and consume as needed or desired—This will rectify gout-insulin-myco bacterial prevention or healing-respiratory-pancreatic-lung-even-brain-antioxidant support---and in the interim there is the intestinal relieve and decontaminating effect—May even see the insulin become more normalized as well
[U1]This is beyond cannibalism---this is a total lost of human respect for life this si something a reptile or amphibian would do—or someone practicing a form of barbaric ritualistic rites---this is where we are in the year 2011
[U2]Something is really wrong here---eating a carcass !!!
[U3]Educated and Civilized is the Key word here ---and it appears in the age of 2011 this is not the case either way—Raw Foodism is Now the trend soon coming to a area near you –Cannabalism!!
[U4]On So Many levels
[U5]Just Like a Pharmaseutical Company—Getting Royalities in selling Death!!
[U6]Solae is a Company that wanted to Patent Soy and it was the Minsitry of Health in Israel that stopped this showing the dangers of Soy as a toxic waste---and here they are again looking at new ways to poison the populace!!!
[U7]Natural Meaning Foods that are clean and free of chemicals and hormones and those that are actually what they are not a natural flavoured food but the actual food itself
[U8]Whole Foods got caught with there kickers down saying there meats were “Natural” and in reality they were being fed genetically modified grains and legumes and corn
[U9]This is interesting eh! No one seems to know what natural really is---and then they want a Gov’t institution to define this?? This is amazing or a corrupt industry to define this? I think we need to understand the truth about natural and about polluted natural materials derived from a natural setting and the need to process to get some natural poisons out and not add new ones in!!!!

TSP- Trisodium phosphate
Trisodium phosphate (TSP, E339) is a cleaning agent, food additive, stain remover and degreaser. It is a white, granular or crystalline solid, highly soluble in water producing an alkaline solution. The item of commerce is often partially hydrated and may range from anhydrous trisodium phosphate, Na3PO4, to the dodecahydrate, Na3PO4·12H2O. Most often found in white powder form, it can also be called trisodium orthophosphate or just plain sodium phosphate. Trisodium phosphate was at one time extensively used in formulations for a wide variety of consumer grade soaps and detergents, but ecological problems have largely ended that practice, at least in the western world. Substitutes are not as effective, but the raw chemical can be bought in bulk to add to underpowered detergents.--- The major use for trisodium phosphate is in cleaning agents. The pH of a 1% solution is 12, and the solution is [U1] sufficiently alkaline to saponify grease and oils. In combination with surfactants, TSP is an excellent agent for cleaning everything from laundry to concrete driveways. This versatility and low manufacturing price, made TSP the preferred basis for a plethora of cleaning products sold in the mid-20th century. TSP is still sold, and used, as a cleaning agent, but during the late 1960s in the United States government regulators in seventeen states determined that overuse led to a series of ecological problems --By the end of the 20th century, many products that formerly contained TSP were manufactured with TSP Substitutes, which consist mainly of sodium carbonate along with various admixtures of nonionic surfactants and a limited percentage of sodium phosphates.---( BAKING SODA )---TSP is commonly used after cleaning with mineral spirits in order to remove hydrocarbon residues-TSP may be used with household chlorine bleach in the same solution without hazardous reactions. This mixture is particularly good for removing mildew.—
Food additive--Trisodium phosphate is approved as a food additive in the EU and other countries. It has the E number E339 and is used as an acidity regulator in a variety of food products
Exercise performance enhancement--TSP has gained a following as a nutritional supplement that can improve certain parameters of exercise performance. The basis of this belief is the fact that phosphate is required for the energy-producing Krebs cycle central to aerobic metabolism. Phosphates are available from a number of other sources that are much milder than TSP. While trisodium phosphate is not toxic per se, it is severely irritating to gastric mucosa unless used as part of a buffered solution. Studies have shown that loading with TSP may increase an athlete's VO2 Max as well as reducing the accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles Dosing is typically 3-4 grammes per day for three days prior to competition.---Making a 1 % a solution you would take 1 gram to 1 litre---- will equal or 1 mg per serving--
Coconut flour Pancakes ( bread )
Here is the coconut flour pancake recipe I found the other day. I have made them 3 times already! and they keep getting better every time. So even if they dont turn out perfect the first time you will definitely want to make them again because they are delicious and help with the carb cravings!
For yourself and local listeners you can buy coconut flour at Zerhs in the gluten free section. Cheapest brand 'lets do organic' is 6 dollars for 454g. I still have to check out bulk barn and international shops for a coconut flour resource. But 6 bucks isn't bad for a carb fix.
Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes :)
Recipe Notes: Both cow, coconut milk and kefir (I water the kefir down so its half and half) work well in this recipe. You can also add cinnamon or fruit as desired. Just keep the pancakes small and watch them so they don't burn.
* 4 eggs
* 1 cup Milk (cow, coconut or Kefir)
* 1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 1 tablespoon honey or a pinch of stevia
* 1/2 cup coconut flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
* coconut oil or butter for frying
1. preheat pan at medium-low heat. In a small bowl beat eggs until frothy, about 2 min. Mix in milk, vanilla, honey or stevia.
2. In a medium-sized bowl combine coconut flour, baking soda, and sea salt and whisk together. stir in wet mixture into dry until coconut flour is incorporated. (the pancake mix should look thicker than flour based pancake mix)
3. Grease pan with butter or coconut oil. Ladle a few tablespoons of batter into pan for each pancake. spread out slightly with back of the spoon. the pancakes should be 2-3 inches in diameter and fairly thick. Cook for a few min on each side, until the tops dry out slightly and the bottoms start to brown. flip and cook an additional 2-3 min. 4. Serve with butter, coconut oil, honey, peanut butter, syrup or fruit.
Even the Cleanest Wastewater Contributes to More 'Super Bacteria'
Exemplary wastewater treatment mixed with pristine surface waters made the Duluth, Minn., area an ideal location for this study. -ScienceDaily (Nov. 14, 2011) — A new University of Minnesota study reveals that treated municipal wastewater -- even wastewater treated by the highest-quality treatment technology -- can result in significant quantities of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, often referred to as "superbacteria," in surface waters.---The study also suggests that standard wastewater treatment technologies probably release far greater quantities of antibiotic-resistant genes used by bacteria, but this likely goes unnoticed because background levels of bacteria are normally much higher than in the water studied in this research.---The new study is led by civil engineering associate professor Timothy LaPara in the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities College of Science and Engineering. The study is published in the most recent issue of Environmental Science and Technology, a journal of the American Chemical Society. The research was part of a unique class project in a graduate-level civil engineering class at the University of Minnesota focused on environmental microbiology.--Antibiotics are used to treat numerous bacterial infections, but the ever-increasing presence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria has raised substantial concern about the future effectiveness of antibiotics. In response, there has been increasing focus on environmental reservoirs of antibiotic resistance over the past several years. Antibiotic use in agriculture has been heavily scrutinized, while the role of treated municipal wastewater has received little attention as a reservoir of resistance.---Antibiotic-resistant bacteria develop in the gastrointestinal tracts of people taking antibiotics. These bacteria are then shed during defecation, which is collected by the existing sewer infrastructure and passed through a municipal wastewater treatment facility.---In this study, the Ph.D. students and professor examined the impact of municipal wastewater in Duluth, Minn., on pristine surface waters by gathering water samples from the St. Louis River, Duluth-Superior Harbor, and Lake Superior in northeastern Minnesota. The treatment facility in Duluth is considered one of the best. After solids and biological matter are removed, the Duluth wastewater treatment is one of only a few in the country that filter water a third time through a mixed media filter to remove additional particles of bacteria and nutrients. Standard wastewater treatment treats water twice to remove solids and biological matter.---"This was a unique and ideal location for this study because of the exemplary wastewater treatment mixed with surprisingly pristine surface waters with very low background levels of bacteria that wouldn't mask our results," LaPara said. "Previous studies in which treated municipal wastewater was implicated as a source of antibiotic resistance were more convoluted because multiple sources of antibiotic resistance genes existed, such as agricultural activity and industrial wastewater discharges."-- While the levels of overall bacteria were still relatively low in the surface water samples, researchers in the University of Minnesota study found that the quantities of antibiotic-resistant genes and human-specific bacteria were typically 20-fold higher at the site where treated wastewater was released into the Duluth-Superior Harbor compared to nearby surface water samples.--"Current wastewater treatment removes a very large fraction of the antibiotic resistance genes," LaPara said. "But this study shows that wastewater treatment operations need to be carefully considered and more fully studied as an important factor in the global ecology of antibiotic resistance." In addition to LaPara, researchers involved in the study include civil engineering Ph.D. students Tucker Burch, Patrick McNamara, David Tan; and bioproducts and biosystems engineering Ph.D. student Mi Yan, with help from soil, water and climate Ph.D. student Jessica Eichmiller.---The University of Minnesota research study was funded by the National Science Foundation's broader impacts effort, which combines research and education. The Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund paid for time on the R/V Blue Heron ship to collect water samples.--Story Source--The above story is reprinted from materials provided by University of Minnesota.
MSM Production and what you need to know!!
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) Production
MSM has been around for more than 35 years. DMSO and MSM research can be traced back to the 1950s. In fact, there are more than 55,000 studies on DMSO alone. Since DMSO breaks down in the body to MSM and other sulfur compounds, there is considerable evidence of its safety, along with two acute toxicity studies on MSM that basically attest to it being as safe to consume as water.
Again, similarly, I’m also sure that the vast majority of people are well aware that MSM is not, nor cannot be extracted directly from a pine tree! Suggestions to the contrary (often seen on web sites and quoted in the press) reveal a fundamental ignorance of the very basics of source.
In the case of MSM, the source material, rather than being Nectar as in the honey example above, are the Methyl groups (Ref 9) (One of the commonest structural units of organic compounds, consisting of three hydrogen atoms bonded to a carbon atom, which is linked to the remainder of the molecule. The methyl radical (CH3), the methyl cation (CH+3), and the methyl anion (CH-3)34 are transient intermediates in many chemical reactions.
Where do the Methyl Groups come from? In the case of Pine Tree Source MSM:
The Methyl Groups are found within the Lignin (Ref 10) structures of pine trees. Organic Lignin is the second most prevalent organic substance on earth, organic cellulose being the most prevalent. Organic Lignins are described as "The cement like bonds which hold organic cellulose together" constituting from a quarter to a third of the dry mass of wood. Needless to say, Lignin is vital in the structure of all living plant material. It is also the substance which contains the methyl groups (source material) we need for the production of "natural" source MSM as opposed to Fossil Fuel MSM.---- In the case of Fossil Fuel Source MSM (often called petrochemical or synthetic MSM)---The Methyl Groups are derived from the Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) (Ref 11) by-product of petrochemical works. After oil and petrol have been refined there are a large number of by-products. DMSO in this case, is one of the by-products of the manufacture of Petrochemicals.---Where does the DMSO come from for the manufacture of pine tree source MSM?---First we need to have a brief look at paper manufacture (Ref 12). Paper manufacturers use both mechanical and chemical methods to obtain the pulp fibres from trees needed to make paper. Mechanical pulping results in the vast majority of lignin going into the paper (This tends to make paper yellow with time) In contrast, chemical pulping breaks down the chemical structures of lignin and renders it soluble in the cooking liquor, so that it may be washed from the cellulose fibres. Because lignin holds the plant cells together, chemical pulping frees the fibres and makes pulp. The resulting by-product of paper manufacture is black liquor (Ref 13) which is an aqueous solution of lignin residues, hemicellulose and the inorganic chemicals used in the process. The black liquor is refined to obtain Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO).---Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) (CH3)2SO)
ØMSM has to be processed to obtain –no such thing as a Natural Source
Yet it is a natural product found in trees and plants and in people and animals
ØMSM is produced by oxidising Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO). Just like bees in the honey example further above, we use a number of ingredients to facilitate this process, however, unlike honey, MSM produced by distillation is extremely pure.----The process we use to manufacture MSM reflects the way it is produced in the earth's upper atmosphere. The result is pure MSM identical to that produced by nature--- ØHence, the only viable method for producing large commercial quantities of these life-giving sulfur compounds is by using chemical technology. Therefore, one can not buy "natural" MSM. It is not commercially possible. Instead, one must rely on chemical engineering and the skills of chemical engineers to produce commercial quantities of MSM.×
The term "natural pine" as a source of the MSM made by other producers of MSM is misleading. MSM is made from the waste of paper making. Most paper is made from pine trees because pine tress grow fast and are cheap. The term "natural pine" is pure tripe -- psychobabble. The word "natural" used there is an emotional word to make you think their stuff is better than others.
Depression and Chronic Stress Accelerates Aging
ScienceDaily (Nov. 9, 2011) — People with recurrent depressions or those exposed to chronic stress exhibits shorter telomeres in white blood cells. This is shown by a research team at Umeå University in a coming issue of Biological Psychiatry.--The telomere is the outermost part of the chromosome. With increasing age, telomeres shorten, and studies have shown that oxidative stress and inflammation accelerates this shortening. On this basis it has been suggested that telomere length is a measure of biological aging, and telomere length has subsequently been linked to age-related diseases, unhealthy lifestyle, and longevity. The research team shows that shorter telomere length is associated with both recurrent depression and cortisol levels indicative of exposure to chronic stress.--The study includes 91 patients with recurrent depression and 451 healthy controls. Telomere length, measured in white blood cells, is shorter among the patients compared with the control group. The scientists also examined the participants' stress regulation using a so-called dexamethasone suppression test.--"The test revealed that cortisol levels indicative of chronic stress stress are associated with shorter telomeres in both depressed and healthy individuals," says Mikael Wikgren, a doctoral candidate in the research group. The fact that depressed patients as a group have shorter telomere lengths compared to healthy individuals can be largely explained by the fact that more depressed people than healthy people have disturbed cortisol regulation, which underscores that cortisol regulation and stress play a major role in depressive disorders.--The article is part of Mikael Wikgren's dissertation work. The research team, led by Professor Rolf Adolfsson, also includes Karl-Fredrik Norrback, Ph.D, (supervisor), doctoral candidate Martin Maripuu, and project coordinator Annelie Nordin. The study was carried out in collaboration with researchers from the Department of Medical Bioscience, Umeå University, as well as scientists at Stockholm University, Linköping University, and Antwerp University.
