  • It should have been "pink slime".  Google it and buy your hamburger from me or someone you know. 

 

Our cows only get grass.  It appears the CAFO’s use whatever they can find that’s cheap.  You are What You Eat, so are the cows.  http://www.naturalnews.com/028675_beef_chicken_poop.html

 

Now I guess I know what happened to the Jerry Brunetti videos that I recently tried to send in a recent Breezy Hill Update.  I had sent it in an earlier Update, but one of the segments was subsequently deleted with the same they used on the GMO interview.  http://www.naturalnews.com/028718_YouTube_censorship.html

  • hog is sold

I guess I lucked out when I chose to have a Guernsey and Brown Swiss herd of milk cows.  I still am trying to find out how to get my cows tested.  The University of Missouri’s dairy profs have been no help.  Surprise. Surprise!! http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/04/27/does-drinking-milk-cause-upperrespiratory-congestion.aspx

The FDA has declared war on raw milk and now states like Boston are trying to outlaw it, too. Today's feature story reveals how the FDA believes you have no right to food and you are only "allowed" to eat or drink whatever they tell you to.

Plus: A Raw Milk "Drink In" is being held in Boston today! Read all about the FDA, states' rights and raw milk in today's story:

  • I hava a half of a hog available.  I need to know by Tuesday evening.   It is the last hog until this fall. 
  • I have yogurt makers for $24.
  • We still have some hard white winter wheat.
  • The last issue of ACRES, USA had an excellent article on Kombucha and Kefir.  I will make some copies.
  • Have you heard of "pink slim"?  Check out the May issue of Acres, USA under INDUSTRIAL AG WATCH (page 9).    "It is estimated that 50-70 percent of all hamburger in the country is partly comprised of this product including meat from McDonald's.  School lunch program  was using 10%, this has been raised to 15%.
  • We replaced our basement refrigerator with one with adjustable shelves.  It is easier to store the half gallon milk jars.  If you're interested in a reliable old refrigerator, let me know.  It has a freezer compartment on top.
  • Milk is in transition.  Princess has been turned dry.  She is due to calf in July.  The loaner cow, that kicks, is due to be turned dry mid month.  She still kicks.  Rosebud is due May 20, but will take a week for the milk to clear from colostrum.  Daisey is going again, after her calf solved her udder problem.  I am weaning Buttermilk, her calf.  Hopefully, I can get her production up, and with her and rosebud make it till July for our existing customers.  In July Lila is due to calf.

An interesting article from YES magazine.

Soda kills sperm

Love to gulp soda? Then raise your glass high and offer up a fizzy farewell toast to your manhood -- because a new study finds that cola drinkers have less sperm.

 

In fact, young cola-drinking men have 30 percent less sperm -- that's millions and millions of the critters who've just decided to swim off -- than those who drink no soda at all.

 

Don't blame the caffeine, because the researchers found that coffee and tea drinkers had no overall difference in sperm levels. Soda, on the other hand, well... just look at the damage: It's like a tornado's gone through the testicles, and all the sperm were hiding in mobile homes.

 

Danish researchers examined the semen of more than 2,500 young men. While men who drank no soda had an average of 50 million sperm per milliliter of semen, those who drank a liter a day -- just one Big Gulp -- had only 35 million sperm in each milliliter, according to the study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

 

So what's a few million sperm between friends -- it just takes one to make a baby, right?

 

Men with less sperm have a higher risk of reproductive problems. And since we drink a lot of soda and make fewer babies, it doesn't take a huge leap to make a connection between the two.

 

In addition, the new study looked only at young men. Older men who've been drinking that daily Big Gulp for years could be doing even worse.

 

But you can't blame the soda alone. Throw in what most people eat with those Big Gulps -- snack cakes, fast food burgers and TV dinners -- and you've got a recipe for overall poor health and disease.

 

And those millions of sperm are just the cola-lateral damage of an unhealthy lifestyle.

 

Sticking to beer,

China just can't help itself -- no matter what they send to us, you can bet Mao's Tomb that there's something wrong with it.

 

You've heard about the lead-laced toys, tainted food, and toxic drywall, but the latest poison being shipped here from Red China could be even worse than all three of those things put together... because it might be in your family's drinking water right now.

 

Communities from coast to coast have quietly turned to cheap Chinese "fluoride" for their local water districts.

 

But what are they really selling us?

 

The Massachusetts town of Amesbury had to stop using the stuff after they noticed it wasn't dissolving in the water like fluoride. In fact, the junk was clogging up their machinery.

 

It's being tested right now, but I have my doubts that we'll ever learn the truth about what was in those bags from China labeled "fluoride." But I do know this: I wouldn't drink it for all the wontons in Shanghai.

 

While Amesbury may have stopped adding fluoride to its water, at least 43 other Massachusetts communities -- 650,000 people -- are still using "fluoride" from the same communist supplier.

 

And that's just Massachusetts... and fluoride from one supplier. Who knows how many other towns are using this garbage. Maybe your own community is one of them.

 

You know how I feel about fluoride -- it's a powerful and dangerous poison, and there's no legitimate medical reason to put it inside a human body, much less the water supply. With a little luck, the commies have simply sold bags of plain old dirt -- because I'd rather see some extra mud in the pipes than genuine fluoride.

 

 

Here is the same info from another source.  Beware of soyCommon chemicals linked to early puberty

Little girls are quickly turning into women... and not just because time flies. They're getting a secret hormone boost that's leading to early puberty and a lifetime of trouble.

And unless you've been growing your own food and drinking out of coconut shells, your family is almost certainly at risk.

The latest study found that young girls around the country have alarming levels of three frightening hormone-like substances that I've been warning you about: phenols, phthalates and phytoestrogens.

When researchers from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine studied urine samples from 1,151 girls between 6 and 8 years old from New York City, Cincinnati and northern California, they found high levels of all three of those "p's" in the pee.

I'll throw in one more "p" -- poison, because these awful chemicals will harm you and your family, especially your children and grandchildren.

It's not hard to figure out why kids are absorbing so much of this junk... because the troubling trio is everywhere. Phthalates are in plastics -- even toys -- as well as cosmetics. Phytoestrogen is the key hormone-like substance that makes soy so dangerous. And the most common phenol, BPA, is in just about everything -- including plastic bottles and can linings.

This new study in Environmental Health Perspectives is on girls, but the damage isn't limited to them. These are equal-opportunity hormones, and they're making boys more feminine as well.

Turns out the phthalates are even helping boys to grow their own breasts -- to the point where some of them practically need bras themselves. (Read, "Why some boys have breasts.")

I've also told you plenty about BPA -- it's been linked to heart disease, cancer, obesity, asthma and all manner of sexual dysfunction in males and females alike. Soy is quite simply the world's most dangerous substance disguised as food.

There's no room for debate on this, and no time to wait for the feds to act. Avoid soy, plastics and cans as much as you possibly can.

  • Our first chicken day went really well.  Everyone came on time.  The next date will be in about 4 weeks.  I will notify who is getting chickens at least a week in advance.
  • Dr Mercola had a video with Mark McAfee recently, but I found a better one on Utube.  BE SURE TO WATCH THIS.

Here is part one of an eight part presentation by Mark McAfee.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pd488LXsqhs  .  The segments are about 10 minutes each, so if you are limited on time, watch a couple and then finish at a later date.  You will learn why osteoporosis occurs even when drinking store milk.  I think this in part 4 or five.  

Part 2 is really good.  BE sure to watch Part 2. 

Watch part 4 and learn about Kefir!!

  • We are having our first of the season chicken day this coming Saturday.  I have notified several people for pick up.  If you have received an email and have not yet responded, please do.  If you can't make it, I need to know so I can notify someone else that is on our list. 
  • Anyone that has not requested chicken needs to so we can plan our purchases of chicks.  We only will raise what we have orders for.  The first two batches are sold, so if you are not on the pick up for this coming Saturday, you will be for the next in about 4 weeks.

    We have a couple of yogurt makers for sale.  You can make your own, even with store milk.  It will make that milk better.

Here’s an article to read and think about.  It covers a lot of  things.  http://www.naturalnews.com/028647_health_literacy.html

 

This is a lengthy interview, but quite revealing.  It was in the Acres, USA  April issue. After reading this, you will know what is happening with Greece.
 
http://www.acresusa.com/toolbox/reprints/April_Brown.pdf

That issue of Acres, USA has an article on how raw milk, with its' bacteria and enzymes, can kill various pathogens that may be in the milk.  Your library may have it.  Most bookstores have Acres, USA.

  • Final reminder, Dirt, the movie is on public tv tomorrow at 10 pm.   It is an exceptional movie.  It will make you think about what we are doing to our soil.
  • On Wednesday at 8 public tv is showing Food, Inc.  If you haven't seen it, now is your chance.  It will not be in your local movie theatre.  If you have seen it invite a friend over and watch it again.

Just in case you live in California.   This can happen in other places.  You’ll note that they are concerned their supplier is the cause.  Their supplier is a “grinder”.  I’ve sent info on how grinders operate.  Costco wanted to require in in coming inspection of their ground beef and the “grinder” refused to sell to Costco.  Costco had to develop another source. http://www.ecoliblog.com/2010/04/articles/e-coli-recalls/winco-foods-expands-e-coli-hamburger-recall/index.html

 

Here is information about vaccines.  Very interesting. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/04/17/major-vaccine-suspended-due-to-contamination-with-pig-virus.aspx

Did you know? http://i.usatoday.net/tech/graphics/iss_timeline/flash.htm

 

Curious what this "nutrient" really is?  Let me give you some hints:

It moves at the speed of light. You can feel it (it feels warm), but

you can't touch it. Without it, there would be no life whatsoever on

planet Earth. And it can't be patented or sold for profit.

 

What is it? Sunlight.

 

I'm talking about natural, healthy sunshine, which enables your body

to make its own lifesaving vitamin D. Today, I want to share with you

the secrets of its health benefits in a fascinating special report

called, "The Healing Power of Sunshine and Vitamin D." It's available

for downloading right now at:

 

http://www.naturalnews.com/SpecialReports/Sunlight.pdf

(Adobe Acrobat format) 

 

This special report contains information you probably won't hear from

your doctor or dermatologist, because it goes against everything they

believe about sunlight. But recent research is proving that not

getting enough sunlight is extremely dangerous to your health because

it causes vitamin D deficiencies that promote chronic disease.

 

Seeking out sunlight in safe, reasonable doses, on the other hand,

does wonders for your health and may, in fact, render all sorts of

conventional medical therapies irrelevant. Again, you can get the full

story in this fascinating special report right now:
