Now a word from our sponsor… NOT!

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

Latest GMO corn introduction makes it appear Health Canada has dropped all pretense of regulating GMO food crops

From Lucy Sharratt, on Rabble.ca

“Health Canada has begun permitting genetically engineered (GE, also called genetically modified or GM) foods onto the market without any health safety assessment. Our government has never adequately examined the safety of GE foods and crops but has now dropped the pretence altogether.

After almost 15 years of approving the varieties of GE soy, canola and corn that we now eat, Health Canada has stopped bothering with the formalities. This complete lack of safety evaluation is not an oversight or loophole in the regulation of GE crops and foods however. Rather, it is the deliberate extension of a regulatory system that relies on corporate data and was designed to support the industry.

On July 15, Monsanto and Dow AgroSciences announced that they had received approval to introduce their new eight-trait GE corn ‘SmartStax’ into Canada and the U.S. But Health Canada did not assess ‘SmartStax’ for human health safety and didn’t even authorize it. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) officially approved the environmental release of ‘SmartStax’ but didn’t conduct an environmental risk assessment. Furthermore, the CFIA actually substantially weakened a critical environmental stewardship rule just for the introduction of ‘SmartStax’ — without publishing a justification. Continue reading

Dr. Shiv Chopra (ex Health Canada) talks food irradiation, other dangers

Dr. Shiv Chopra, on food irradiation, and other health concerns:

“Almost all American and Canadian food is already being irradiated. Take note of out-of-season fruits, looking fine but with blackish and horrible tasting pulp inside. Notice also the strange looking depressions on melon skins with mush and tasteless pulp inside. It is all due to irradiation destroying fruit ripening enzymes that convert their starch into sugar.

Health Canada whistleblower Shiv Chopra reviews “Vaccine Epidemic”

VACCINE EPIDEMIC by Louise Kuo Habakus and Mary Holland (Ed.), Skyhorse Publishing, 307 West 36th Street, 11th Floor, New York, , NY, 10018 (ISBN: 978-1-61608-272-7).

Vaccine Epidemic is the latest book on vaccine damaged Americans crying out for help.

Authored by eminent lawyers, health care professionals, philosophers, medical science historians, human rights advocates, vaccine affected patients and their closest relatives, it portrays a grim picture of modern medicine and the justice system.

It may as well be a cry to God for delivering their fate to corporate greed in complicity with their own government. Not surprisingly, the cry is not without proof. Continue reading
