This chicken contains an anti-foaming agent made of silicone and a chemical preservative so deadly that just five grams can kill you.

Here is a comment from someone just learning about the raw cheese raid in south Missouri.

 

“Sylvia just reminded me of why I began drinking raw milk 18 years ago, while working for an accounting firm. This firm had a huge megadairy as one of its clients, and every year we had to audit the dairy, whereby all the firm's employees had to go to the dairy and count cows... it usually took all the employees, even secretaries and the higher echelon, to count every single cow, calf and bull, during the audit. That's how big the dairy was.

I was horrified by what I saw; it was truly disgusting... and I've always loved farms and cows. Worse, while I was there, the dairy described how milk was processed: all milk is first stripped of the butterfat, and the fat is then added back in precise amounts to achieve 1%, 2% or 4% levels. Of course, the skim, 1% and 2% milk weigh less than 4% milk does, so adjustments must be made to make those milks weigh the same as 4% does, so extra sugar and dried milk is added for extra body and flavor, as well as chalk and other ingredients to milk because milk turns this weird blue color once the fat is removed; not to mention the homogenization and pasteurization process. After hearing all that, I was even more horrified and made a concerted effort to find a family farm with one or two cows that would sell me raw milk that they drank themselves.”

A new study in the Journal of the American Dental Association finds once again that, contrary to what most people have been told, fluoride is actually bad for teeth.   http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/11/13/cdc-and-ada-now-advise-to-avoid-using-fluoride.aspx

 Type 2 diabetes is a disease caused by insulin resistance and faulty leptin signaling, both of which are regulated through your diet. Every diabetic needs to understand that the number one way to avoid and control this disease is to severely restrict or eliminate sugars (particularly fructose) and starchy carbs like breads and cereals – more or less the complete opposite of conventional recommendations.  Read the complete article here.  http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/11/12/new-study-predicts-one-in-three-in-us-will-have-diabetes.aspx

The following is from,
William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.


Osteoporosis drugs may cause fractures

For a moment there, it almost looked like the feds were doing their jobs.

The FDA has issued a new warning about osteoporosis meds, practically admitting what I've said all along: Bisphosphonate drugs can actually BREAK the bones they're supposed to protect.

Then, they said go ahead -- keep taking 'em! Don't these people read their own memos?

As I told you earlier this year, studies have found that women who take these drugs can start to experience brittle bones at four years, and face an increased risk of hip fractures at five years.

The feds looked the other way at the time -- but as hard as they try, they can't ignore the evidence. So now they plan to put a warning -- a plain one, not a black-boxer -- on all bisphosphonate meds used for osteoporosis, including Fosamax, Boniva, Atelvia and the yearly Reclast injection.

They'll also issue a "medication guide" with the new warning. In other words, a brochure.

This isn't some abstract piece of research we're talking about here. Each one of these breaks represents a woman in a hospital, robbed of her independence. These women face long and painful recoveries, and some will never walk right again -- if they even manage to walk at all.

And if you think that's bad, you should see some of the other side effects that come from these meds. They've been linked to heartburn, abdominal pain, fever, bone and muscle pain, low energy and low levels of calcium in the blood.

These drugs have even been linked to esophageal cancer and necrosis of the jaw.

Luckily, men and women alike don't need meds to protect their bones -- just a little help from the nutrients you should be getting anyway.

 And I'm not just talking about calcium here -- because too much calcium can actually break your bones, not save them.

I wrote everything you need to know about bone health in The Douglass Report last year.

The ugly truth about processed meat.  How many of you Googled "pink slime"???

Here's a photo worth keeping in your wallet.    http://www.fooducate.com/blog/2009/08/03/guess-whats-in-the-picture-foodlike-substance/

That eerie pink putty is being served in some form or another for breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight snack at homes and in restaurants across the country and around the world. 

It's mechanically separated chicken, and that's what's left after all the good and even not-so-good parts have been removed from the bird.

The chicken bits are turned into a paste, which is then treated, dyed, reshaped and sold to you. It's the "chicken" in many processed chicken dinners, including frozen food, packaged meals, canned foods and fast foods.

Some people are using this image to push a radical vegan agenda, but let's not get ridiculous here. As long as you're eating real, fresh meat straight from a farm or quality butcher, you'll never risk having this funky junk on your fork.

But I was serious about keeping this photo in you wallet -- it's a great reference tool to have while shopping. Find yourself tempted by low-priced processed foods? Just whip out the pic and the temptation will pass (along with your appetite).

Feel free to show it to anyone else nearby -- I guarantee you, it'll lead to far more interesting conversations than a photo of the grandkids. 

You just can't beat real, fresh meat, especially meats from Breezy Hill  !!!!

 
 that's it from the hill.  Art and Debra
