Sex, laws and raw milk

An excerpt from David E. Gumpert’s latest imaginings on The Complete Patient blog titled “John Sheehan’s latest FDA Job Evaluation: Tell me again why we’re going after someone who craves orgasms“:

It’s been more than six months since John Sheehan last met with Margaret Hamburg, the commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. She’s called the head of Plant and Dairy in for a rare Labor Day session to review a number of important developments in the government’s campaign against raw milk.

Margaret Hamburg: Last time we talked, John, things were going so well on the raw milk front. You had dairy farmers on the run in Wisconsin. You were revving things up to send a strong message against raw milk in Massachusetts. You headed off that legislation in Wyoming that would have allowed small producers to sell unlicensed food. The federal food safety legislation looked like a done deal. You had helped create one of the Centers for Disease Control 2020 goals to reduce the number of states making raw milk available. Your state-by-state harassment campaign seemed to be bearing fruit. I was so proud of you and your team at Plant and Dairy. Continue reading

Michael Schmidt asks “Are regulations lawful if they haven’t been passed by the legislature”

Well, you’d think so, since “everyone” seems to accept that status quo.

But what if more and more people started questioning the proliferation of regulations and other intrusions of government into what formerly were realms of personal freedom? What then? Michael Schmidt asks some difficult questions, questions that matter a lot to our political future… as in will Canadians become ever more burdened by their political “masters”, or will they be served by their “public servants”?

And finally a reminder to those who live in Bruce Grey Owen Sound and would like to help Michael Schmidt win the nomination to be chosen as the Progressive Conservative candidate for that riding, hurry up and join the party now, before it’s too late. As far as I understand, one can actually be a member of more than one political party. And joining the party is not expensive either. People have been conditioned through the media to believe that there’s nothing they can do about the misuse of government. And yet, by ignoring what’s going on in politics, they give their tacit assent to those very evils that may come back to bite them in the end. So lets wake up now, while something still can be done to turn things around, before it’s too late!

So here’s the latest post on Michael Schmidt’s political blog: Continue reading

What you don’t know about Fluoride can damage your children’s health

Here’s an excerpt from a story that affects just about everyone in the western world. This is from a recent post on Augie’s Journal of Natural Food and Healing titled “FLUORIDE ALERT: Slowly poisoning the children” and is by by Sylvia P. Onusic, PhD:

Author Sylvia P. Onusic, Ph.D. Read her bio at the bottom of this post.

“Our kids are getting too much fluoride. It’s here, it’s there, it’s everywhere!  You might think, if a little is good, more is better. Not in the case of fluoride, which has no nutritional value in the human diet and is considered an extremely hazardous material which requires, by law, special transportation and disposal.

Fluorine is the element, and all compounds of fluorine are called fluorides. Calcium fluoride occurs in nature but it is not calcium fluoride that is put into toothpaste, mouth rinse, drinking water, and other products.

The fluoride added to US drinking water is considered a hazardous waste by EPA. Now it is purchased from China.  Remember the melamine in baby formula, the tainted dog food, the childrens’ toys and jewelry? Continue reading
