Salmonella eggs and food sterilization

Excerpts from a recent Natural News story titled “FDA exploits salmonella eggs recall to pursue food sterilization agenda“:

“(NaturalNews) It’s always amusing to see how quickly consumers can be worked up into a false fear frenzy by health authorities. We saw it last year with the overhyped H1N1 swine flu scare which was fanned into a flaming fear fest by WHO advisors on the take from vaccine manufacturers. Now we’re getting a new round of fear-mongering from many of the same sources who are warning us about salmonella contaminated eggs.

According to mainstream news sources, a massive 380-million-egg recall has been announced, and these eggs are all so incredibly dangerous that you have to immediately remove them from your refrigerator and take them back to the storewhere you bought them so that they can be properly destroyed. This is all backed up by phrases like, “It’s not worth the risk,” and claims that if people eat the eggs, they are taking “too much of a chance.”

Pretty scary, huh?

What they’re not telling you is that more than 80 percent of the chicken meat bought atgrocery stores is consistently contaminated with the exact same salmonella(http://www.naturalnews.com/021258.html). A more recent study conducted by Consumers Union found that two-thirds of grocery store chickens are contaminated every day!(http://www.naturalnews.com/028661_c…)

But you don’t hear warnings to “take your chicken back to the store!” or “it’s unsafe to eat your chicken!” Ever wonder why?

Or to phrase the question another way, why is salmonella so dangerous on your eggs, but completely safe on your chicken?…”

“….Why, then, are contaminated eggs being flagged as so dangerous? To answer that, you have to go back to a story I wrote in 2008 called, “FDA Unleashes Mass Irradiation of Spinach, Lettuce and Other Vegetables” (http://www.naturalnews.com/023945.html)

There, following the FDA’s demands that spinach and lettuce be irradiated, I explained the FDA’s real agenda: “Don’t think the FDA will stop with spinach and lettuce, either. They’re already talking about irradiating tomatoes, peppers and onions. Before long, radiation could become mandatory for ALL fresh produce…”

It’s already happened with almonds, which must now be fumigated or pasteurized in the United States — a punitive rule that has severely damaged the U.S. almond industry. That took place after an outbreak of contamination with almonds. Similarly, this recent egg contamination fiasco is giving the FDA precisely the excuse it needs to demand routinepasteurization or irradiation of all eggs. Meanwhile, salmonella-contaminated chicken will be utterly ignored by the FDA even as it calls for the mass-pasteurization of “dangerous” eggs.

The FDA, you see, will seize upon each contamination event as a leverage point from which to ratchet up its food sterilization agenda, and the agency won’t stop until every scrap of fresh food sold at grocery stores is either pasteurized, fumigated or irradiated….”

    I am a 7th grade teacher in NC and came across your site while researching some information about Salmonella for my health class this year. I just wanted to thank you for the great information and articles about Salmonella.

    We would love it if you could write a few articles for us, but I understand if your busy so a link to some of the current articles would be very helpful as well to help us spread trusted resources to other teachers. I have included a link to the site in case you would like to help us out by linking to it, tweeting it, or adding it to your Facebook profile.
