If I ever travel to other US states I’d like to be able to buy raw milk by prescription. Since you can easily get many things by prescription these days… All kind of dangerous substances. FDA says raw milk is “dangerous”. So I bet I could get it by prescription!
Seriously, genetically modified foods, processed foods, Frankenfoods! growth hormones in animals, pesticides, chemicals, vaccines and a huge variety of medication with serious side effects are all allowed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)!
But when it comes to RAW MILK the FDA continues to play hard and make everything possible to wipe it out from the Earth’s surface! Denying all scientific studies, which have been done to demonstrate raw milk’s health promoting benefits. Ignoring the clinical reality, which shows us a growing number of people experiencing a huge improvement in negative symptoms once they switch from pasteurized to raw milk.
Scare Tactics And Recalls, The “FDA” Style!
Since this is clearly an organization who abuses power, it can easily use “scare” tactics and recalls, on unproven grounds. For example:
The International Milk Genomics Consortium (IMGC), which is housed at the University of California, Davis has been working for years to reveal groundbreaking scientific research and studies about the genes that are responsible for making milk. The results of their excellent and interesting scientific information about milk (raw milk and mothers’ milk specifically), is published in a newsletter called Splash!, which seemed to be yet another “threat” in the eyes of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and its agenda. That’s why it was carefully “suggested” for certain information – The Evidence Around Raw Milk– provided by this newsletter to be immediately stopped and ultimately modified to serve their interest…So how does censoring scientific papers sit well with ACADEMIC FREEDOM? You can read more about this subject in my previous article, Breast Milk Secrets Which The FDA Doesn’t Want You To Know.
How about RECALLS? Well, they sure do come in handy when raw milk sales go up too much! Organic Pastures, the largest raw milk producer in California, had to face two recalls for the past year, after many years of providing fresh, healthy raw milk to their consumers. BOTH of the lab testings done in these cases showed NO PATHOGENS in their raw milk, although they had to be shut down for a month and then a week, suffering significant losses. In 2006 a pasteurized creamery got 1,600 people sick with Campylobacter; seven were hospitalized. They were recalled for only 3 hours without even testing…I have a single question for you here: WHY is raw milk treated totally different than pasteurized milk??
Lawsuit Filed Against FDA. Will The Truth Finally Prevail?
A lawsuit was filed last month against the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and government officials, concerning the interstate sales of raw milk.
Organic Pastures Dairy Company, LLC is seeking to force FDA to take final action on a four-year-old petition, requesting the food safety agency grant an exception to the prohibition on interstate sales of raw milk. They have sought permission to transport and sell raw milk across state lines so long as sales of the product are legal in both states.
Mark McAfee, owner of Organic Pastures, states his business is booming with raw milk sales of $10 million a year and 75,000 customers in California. Sprouts, the chain of specialty grocery stores, would like to purchase raw milk from Organic Pastures for retail sales in Arizona. That is not possible today because the federal government has banned interstate sales of raw milk since 1988. (You can see in the picture below in which states raw milk sales are legal in stores and what other legal forms are accepted if raw milk is not sold in stores.)
Mark McAfee believes CDC has posted misleading information on raw milk. Citing a Cornell study analyzing CDC data, he told the CDC in a scathing letter last summer that the number of illnesses caused by raw milk (1,100) between 1973 and 2009 is minuscule compared to those linked to pasteurized milk (422,000).The letter also cited at least fifty deaths from pasteurized cheese or milk while stating raw milk was linked to no deaths during those years.
As you see, dangerous, toxic, body and mind altering drugs are much easier to get by prescription nationwide!
