From the Alliance for Bio-Integrity:
In May 1998 the Alliance for Bio-Integrity led a group of public interest organizations, life scientists, and religious leaders in filing a lawsuit against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to gain mandatory safety testing and labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods. During the discovery process, the agency was required to provide plaintiffs copies of over 44,000 pages of internal records. Photocopies of 24 documents from these files are in a numbered list for viewing and printing on our website (www.biointegrity.org). The quotes from FDA scientists below were excerpted from this group, each followed by the document number from which it comes.<www.biointegrity.org>

“Montana Jones loves her Shropshire sheep.
She raises the rare heritage breed at no profit in a bid to protect the bloodlines tracing back to some of the first sheep on Canadian shores.
But the fluffy romance of 12 years has become a nightmare, with more than half of her flock of 75 slated for the chopping block for no reason, says the farmer.
Her Wholearth Farm in Hastings, near Peterborough, was put under quarantine and listed as a possible source of infection after a ewe she sold to an Alberta farmer five years ago was diagnosed with scrapie. Continue reading
You will die!!!!!!!!
The dire warnings given below about raw milk remind me of a fun new blog I’ve stumbled upon lately titled “Narco Polo”, whose author, Robert R. Arthur, advocates for the legalization of drugs. The author, who is a former teacher and public defender, has also written a book titled “You will die, the burden of modern taboos”.
Unfortunately this fascinating volume is currently out of print, but soon to be reprinted by those fun loving folks at Feral House — you know, the people who brought you “Sex and Rockets”, “The Carnival of Life and Death”, “Cult Rapture”, and “Apocalypse Culture”. But lest anyone think we might be biased here on the Bovine, or oblivious to other points of view, here’s some intel from a recent official Canadian health advisory on raw milk, excerpted from Bill Marler’s “Real Raw Milk Facts” blog:
“OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Aug. 24, 2011) – Health Canada would like to remind Canadians not to drink raw (unpasteurized) milk because it could contain bacteria that can make you seriously ill. Continue reading

Bees seem to get confused by cellphone transmissions. Photo via Inhabitat website.
“Scientists may have found the cause of the world’s sudden dwindling population of bees – and cell phones may be to blame. Research conducted in Lausanne, Switzerland has shown that the signal from cell phones not only confuses bees, but also may lead to their death. Over 83 experiments have yielded the same results. With virtually most of the population of the United States (and the rest of the world) owning cell phones, the impact has been greatly noticeable. Continue reading
Will this be a death knell for the industry? Probably not…. because most people are not paying attention. Oh well, maybe a few more will wake up after reading this. The interesting thing is that “too dangerous to eat” is exactly what the public health types are saying about raw milk. The following is excerpted from Total Health Breakthroughs.com:
Did you hear the one about the Buddhist monk who went up to a hot dog vendor on the street in New York and said "Make me one with everything"? Picture via Total Health...
“The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has just completed a detailed review of more than 7,000 clinical studies covering links between diet and cancer. Its conclusion is rocking the health world with startling bluntness: Processed meats are too dangerous for human consumption. Consumers should stop buying and eating all processed meat products for the rest of their lives. Continue reading
The following excerpt is from a European Union Times story from April 17th:
“A most chilling report circulating in the Kremlin today prepared by the Russian Academy of Medical and Technical Science for Prime Minister Putin states that a “mysterious die-off” in the United States has claimed over 2,000,000 lives since 2008 and is “more than likely” linked to a “crossover” plant disease linked to genetically modified grains and foods.
According to these reports this mysterious, and as yet unidentified, lung disease responsible for this mass die-off began during the spring of 2008 in the US agricultural State of Iowa where (very ironically) at least 36 people attending a Lung Association event at the Governors mansion were stricken.
