Your Milk on Drugs

Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You’re Eating, presents the dangers poised to humans by injecting all our dairy cows with rGHB (aka rBST). Smith exposes collusion between drug companies and the FDA to push these hormones through the already all-too-lax approval process. This is another example of the government sacrificing public health for the wealth of corporate interests.Vodpod videos no longer available.

Factory Farms Increase Infant Deaths

The Stench from Factory Farms is Only Part of the Story

Based on the study, an increase of 100,000 animal units in a county corresponded to 123 more infant deaths per year per 100,000 births. Doubling livestock numbers was linked to a 7.4 percent increase in infant mortality.

I am fortunate that a colleague of mine, who has much more expertise in air pollution than I do, has passed this along to me. Now I know in part why there are 180,000 sustainable, organic farms are all over India and growing– especially after more than 100,000 Indian farmers have committed suicide by drinking Monsanto supplied pesticide, after their farms were destroyed by Monsanto’s bad seed and advice

Previous studies have found that animal production can result in high concentrations of potentially harmful byproducts. Effluent from livestock farms can contaminate the groundwater and air.Certain gases associated with livestock farming have been found to be toxic and to contribute to overall air pollution levels. Livestock farming has also been associated with air-borne particulate matter.

    Quote: Ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and airborne particulate matter are all associated with factory farm livestock production, Sneeringer says. Exposure to the gases has been linked to respiratory distress in infants, while exposure in the womb has been linked to disorders that occur late in pregnancy or shortly after birth, and has also been linked to spontaneous abortions. Sneeringer found that about 80 percent of the infant deaths associated with increased livestock production occurred in the first 28 days of life. Continue reading

Classic Text: Nutrition and Physical Degeneration

newnpd1001This classic text written in 1939 is a primer for anyone interested in how food, diet and nutrition effects human health. This is a classic non-technical text for anyone that eats, especially health and nutrition professionals.

Complete with 134 pictures– proof of ill effects of poor diet and benefits of traditional diets. It clearly shows how and why modern processed foods are most detrimental to health compared to traditional native diets— in other words, how eating a variety of foods grown naturally,  including so-called unhealthy foods, promotes health and prevents diseases and disorders.

The Preface is provided below with my underlining for emphasis.
