Stop Consuming This Cancer Time Bomb That Is In Your Fridge…

There is one food you may be surprised to learn, that is directly linked to breast cancer and many others—and that is pasteurized dairy in the form of milk or milk products. But where the risk lies is in consuming milk from cows treated with a synthetic, genetically engineered growth hormone called rBGH, and unfortunately, this applies to about one third of the dairy cows in America. Believe it or not, the FDA doesn’t think it is important for the foods that contain rBGH be labeled!

The Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH), a genetically engineered hormone manufactured by Monsanto, has sparked a controversy nationwide since its introduction to the marketplace a couple of years ago. Sometimes referred to as Bovine Somatotropin (rBST), the bioengineered hormone is injected in the cows every other week to force the cows to produce more milk (10%-40%) than their bodies normally would. rBGH is similar, although not identical, to a hormone that the cow naturally produces. Increasing levels of this hormone boosts milk production, causing a number of problems with the milk, among them, raising levels of pus, antibiotics residues and a cancer-accelerating hormone called IGF-1.

Monsanto has been linked to another cancer producing cover up which has lied to us all in the form of Nutra-Sweet…better known as Aspartame!

In 1997, two Fox-affiliate investigative journalists, Jane Akre and Steve Wilson, attempted to air a program exposing the truth about the dangers of rBGH and the lies that Monsanto has perpetrated upon the milk consuming public. Lawyers for Monsanto, a major advertiser with the Florida network, sent letters promising “dire consequences” if the story aired.

There are 2 ways to reduce the risk of consuming these genetically engineered hormones when you’re not aware that you may be consuming them:

  1. Use only Organic Milk and Milk products.
  2. Eliminate conventional bleached sugar and substitute it with Stevia or Honey.

The more informed we are of the foods we consume the healthier we will be!

Groups Sue FDA Over Use of Certain Antibiotics in Animal Feed

Last week, a coalition including consumer groups such as Center for Science in the Public Interest, Natural Resources Defense Council and several more filed a law suit against the FDA for failing to take action regarding the overuse of human antibiotics in animal feed. The groups assert that knowledge of the rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria in people consuming such animal products existed as early as 1977. The FDA failed to act on those conclusions and failed to protect public safety. The question remains…Who is the FDA protecting??? It certainly doesn’t look  like it is the general public which was the intended purpose!

The FDA gives mixed messages to farmers when it sometimes emphasizes that farmers use fewer antibiotics to keep drug resistance minimal yet also adhering to longstanding regulations about using said drugs for animal disease control. With a lawsuit pending, the FDA might be more accountable and be compelled to take a step in either direction.
