Jurors Speak Out About Raw Milk Case
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/07/09/raw-milk-case.aspx
By Dr. Mercola

    Under the guise of protecting public health, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection targeted Wisconsin dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger, who was charged with four criminal misdemeanors for supplying a private buying club with raw milk and other fresh produce grown on his farm.

    After the recent listeria outbreak from pasteurized cheese actually killed someone, it makes you wonder why raw dairy products are unfairly targeted even when sold under private contracts which is protected directly by the constitution.

    State prosecutors tried to convict Hershberger for operating a retail food establishment, a dairy farm and a dairy plant without a license. However, since he only supplies food to paid members in a private buying club, he maintained that he was not subject to state food regulations.

    The trial has become a symbol for the war being waged against raw milk in the US, where aggressive regulators are attacking small farmers producing wholesome raw food products for loyal customers.

    Fortunately, the trial ended mostly favorably for Hershberger and made such an impact on the jurors that several are now interested in getting their own raw milk from Hershberger’s farm.

Jurors Angered Over Injustices Against Hershberger, Want to Join His Buyer’s Club

    On May 25, Hershberger was acquitted of three charges of producing, processing and selling milk without state licenses. Then the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a motion to revoke Hershberger’s bail and instead send him to jail for a fourth charge of violating a holding order.

    This required that he not sell any food or milk from his store as a condition of his bail. Hershberger openly admitted that he had violated the order and broke seals to get into his coolers, in part to retrieve food to feed his own family.

    As a result, jurors had no choice but to find him guilty of this charge, and he was sentenced to pay a $1,000 fine plus $513 in court costs. Hershberger avoided jail time and the maximum possible fine of $10,000, but several of the jurors noted that state prosecutors and the county judge withheld key information that would have exonerated him of even the hold-order charge.

    Specifically, the jury only determined whether Hershberger had violated the hold order… not whether the holding order was valid. Since he had been acquitted of the charges that led to the holding order being placed, it means that the state had no right to be barring Hershberger from accessing his food in the first place.

Baraboo News Republic reported:1

        “'… we weren’t allowed to judge whether the holding order was valid,'” [juror Michele] Bollfrass-Hopp said. She added that since Hershberger was acquitted of the other charges that the state used as its basis for placing the holding order, the order itself should have been been a moot point. ‘You have to have common sense when you apply the law.’”

    Several of the jurors were so moved by the case that they now want to join Hershberger’s buying club to be able to access raw milk for their families, noting that this is an issue of food freedom.

        “The trial was about freedom, Bollfrass-Hopp said. ‘That’s what it comes down to. It was about our freedom to choose the food that goes into our mouths. That was the underlying theme,’ she said.”2

Regulators Are Worrying About the Wrong Kind of Milk…

    If you believe that you have the right to choose what type of food you’re ‘allowed’ to purchase and eat, then you can understand just how much is at stake when state and federal regulators start attacking this very basic right.

    Farmers and consumers should be able to engage in private agreements for food without regulatory oversight of any kind, yet states like Wisconsin have rather successfully disguised their attacks on freedom by claiming they are ‘protecting’ consumers from the villainous raw milk.

    Assuming it is produced with high standards, however, raw milk is no more a threat to public health than sunshine or natural supplements (against which similar “public-safety” wars have been aged). You’re actually more likely to get sick from pasteurized milk than from raw milk!

    US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data shows there are about 412 confirmed cases of people getting ill from pasteurized milk each year, while only about 116 illnesses a year are linked to raw milk.3 And research by Dr. Ted Beals, MD, featured in the summer 2011 issue of Wise Traditions,4 the quarterly journal of the Weston A. Price Foundation, shows that you are about 35,000 times more likely to get sick from other foods than you are from raw milk!

    That federal and state regulators are wasting time and resources prosecuting farmers supplying consenting customers with wholesome food is just outrageous, especially when they allow truly dangerous foods – like poultry, beef, pork and eggs raised on CAFOs (concentrated animal feeding operations) – to be sold freely…

Dr. Beals wrote:5

        "From the perspective of a national public health professional looking at an estimated total of 48 million foodborne illnesses each year [from all foods]… there is no rational justification to focus national attention on raw milk, which may be associated with an average of 42 illnesses maximum among the more than nine million people (about 0.0005 percent) who have chosen to drink milk in its fresh unprocessed form.”

Many Back Pain Treatments Are Ineffective and Unnecessary, and Here’s Why
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/newsletter-archive/2013/08/16.aspx

Documentary: Rise of the Superbugs [Bacterial Infections -- Avoid Hospitals!]
Click this link to see documentary: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/newsletter-archive/2013/08/17.aspx
    The documentary Rise of the Superbugs details why antibiotic overuse is leading to the emergence of deadly superbugs. New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase 1, or NDM-1, is a gene that confers ‘super resistance’ to a growing number of lethal antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections in India and at least 35 other countries. Extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR TB), which has a 40 percent mortality rate, is also on the rise around the globe
    Drug companies have little financial incentives to create new antibiotics to replace those that germs have grown resistant to, therefore few new alternatives are in the works. We’re now facing the perfect storm to take us back to the pre-antibiotic age, and if this occurs significant casualties are to be expected. Thankfully, there is a lot you can do to take control of your health and fend infection off naturally.
    This Is a Major Reason to Avoid Hospitals as Much as Possible. In many cases, hospitalization, surgery or the use of medical devices like ventilators or catheters are implicated in the spread of drug-resistant superbugs. The infection is spread by contaminated medical equipment and by physical contact between patients and healthcare personnel. Many superbugs are growing increasingly resistant to the standard sterilization procedures used on medical equipment.
    Medical procedures can also be to blame, such as the prostate biopsy mentioned in the documentary. Even though the patient was taking precautionary antibiotics for the procedure, they didn’t work and he ended up with a drug-resistant form of E. coli attacking his entire body and threatening his life. In the US, more than 2 million people are affected by hospital-acquired infections, many of them drug-resistant, every year, and 100,000 people die as a result. This is one reason why it’s best to avoid hospitals except when absolutely necessary.
    Agricultural Antibiotic Use Is an Often-Overlooked Problem.
    What Can You Do to Make Your Body Less Hospitable to Superbugs? Optimize your diet. Avoid foods that tax your immune system such as synthetic trans fats, fried foods, processed foods, sugar and grains; reduce carbohydrates (sugar, grains, fructose) and protein, replacing them with high-quality fats. Fifty to 70 percent of your total intake should be fat. Most of your diet should be fresh, whole foods, like organic vegetables and grass-pastured meats and dairy, and beneficial fats, such as butter and fermented dairy from grass-pastured animals, cheese, egg yolks, and avocados.

Suppressed Info: DHA Increases Intelligence in Children
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/newsletter-archive/2013/08/19.aspx
    Low levels of the omega-3 fat DHA were associated with poorer reading, memory and behavioral problems in healthy school-aged children. Children who consumed an omega-3 fat supplement as infants scored higher on rule learning, vocabulary and intelligence testing at ages 3-5. Previous studies have also found children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and related behavior/learning disabilities are more likely to have low omega-3 fat levels, as well as benefit from supplementation. I recommend supplementing with animal-based omega-3 fats [shrimp, crab, Alaska salmon, sardines] before and during pregnancy, and while breastfeeding (infants receive DHA through breast milk); as soon as your child can safely swallow a capsule, he or she can start taking a high-quality, animal-based omega-3 supplement.

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/newsletter-archive/2013/08/22.aspx
An estimated 13 percent of the world’s population suffer with migraines. An observational study recently found that people who get migraines have a different blood vessel structure in their brains compared to those who do not get migraines, causing greater asymmetry in hemispheric cerebral blood flow. Environmental factors appear to play a significant role in triggering a migraine attack. This includes certain foods and drinks, hormonal changes, stress, external stimuli like scents or lights, dehydration and changes in sleep cycle. Both aspartame and MSG are notorious for causing headaches and triggering migraines. Aspartame can also trigger other neurological symptoms such as visual disturbances and tingling in the extremities.

Unlike synthetic drugs that target one element, a plant is a complex of thousands of biomolecules, many of which are countervailing, so if there’s one effective compound that may have a toxic effect, it usually contains a countervailing compound to counteract its effect. You can use plants for healing by eating wisely at every meal, as well as by preparing tinctures or teas from herbs, which you can do in your own kitchen.

Why Is UNICEF Accusing Health Journalists of Lying?
    A recently published report1 by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) reveals that the organization is tracking "the rise of online pro-vaccine safety sentiments in Central and Eastern Europe,” and has identified the most influential pro-vaccine safety influencers” on the web. UNICEF included me on the list, along with other independent health websites like GreenMedInfo.com, Mothering.com and NaturalNews.com, just to name a few. In their opening reference, they use a quote by Mark Twain that reads: “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” Clearly, UNICEF is inferring that I and other vaccine-safety advocates are lying about the situation and therefore should be ignored. This would be hilarious if it wasn’t so serious. - Here we have an international organization supposedly dedicated to children’s health and wellbeing, and instead of addressing the ample scientific evidence showing the potential harm of vaccines, they’re entering into ever-deepening partnerships with vaccine company giants like Merck2 and GlaxoSmithKline3 (GSK). They spend precious time and resources on public relations schemes to convince you to ignore any science that raises questions about the wisdom of “carpet-bombing” infants’ and young children’s immune systems with potentially harmful vaccines. - In 2009, it was revealed that Merck had a hit list of doctors to be "neutralized" or discredited for voicing critical opinions about the pain killer Vioxx—a drug that ended up killing more than 60,000 people before it was pulled from the market. GSK spent more than 10 years covering up information that proved they knew about the serious health dangers of their blockbuster diabetes drug Avandia, as it would adversely affect sales. - Read more at the link above.

Screaming at Your Misbehaving Teen May Backfire
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/newsletter-archive/2013/09/19.aspx
    Most parents have raised their voices when disciplining their children, but new research suggest that doing so – especially if it involves shouting, cursing or using insults – may be counterproductive and end up making your child more disobedient. The study, which involved nearly 1,000 13-year-olds and their parents, even found that the effects of harsh verbal punishment may be just as harmful to kids as physical discipline. - These Were Not ‘High-Risk’ Families - The researchers stressed that their findings likely apply to many average American families, where the parents love their children, care about them and want them to avoid problem behaviors. The study’s lead researcher stated: “There was nothing extreme or broken about these homes. These were non ‘high-risk’ families. We can assume there are a lot of families like this…” - In short, the study found that when parents used harsh verbal discipline it predicted an increase in conduct problems and depressive symptoms in the child between ages 13 and 14. Furthermore, the children were more likely to continue their misbehavior and demonstrated behavioral problems such as vandalism or anti-social and aggressive behavior. The damaging effects were similar to those seen with physical punishments and they continued even if parents were yelling ‘out of love’ and also showed warmth and emotional support. In other words, the study’s lead author said: "Even if you are supportive of your child, if you fly off the handle it's still bad. …Our findings offer insight into why some parents feel that no matter how loud they shout, their teenagers do not listen… Indeed, not only does harsh verbal discipline appear to be ineffective at addressing behavior problems in youth, it actually appears to increase such behaviors."

Should people make biological science a political issue with the non aggression principle? Some GMOs are as likely to cause cancer as the foods they were bred from but with out them we would die before we get cancer.

Have you ever noticed we age and get cancer after the age our ancestors reproduce?

I haven't heard of studies that show GMOs to be more nutritious than non-GMO crops. Have you? It would surely be possible for GMO crops to be an improvement for health, if the scientists were not working for corrupt companies. The purpose of GMO companies is likely to maximize profits at people's expense and to monopolize the land so that the common people won't have access to either land or their own seed etc. Do you consider patents on plants and animals moral? To me that's the height of corruption, which the corrupt courts have pretended to legitimize.

From Libertarian Doctor Mercola, Oct. 2013

Pulling Back the Curtain on the Organized Crime Ring That Is the Pharmaceutical Drug Cartel
They bribe their pawns with cash and sexual favors. They target whistleblowers right down to their home addresses. They've corrupted science, so what you [read] has a 4 in 5 chance of being false or misleading. And they're largely influencing your [ill] health. [Read more:]

How Agricultural Chemicals and Hospital Stays Contribute to Alzheimer’s
It's a major hallmark of Alzheimer's, so fixing this deficiency may be protective ... especially avoiding these foods that can rob your body of this important mineral. And don't forget these "top 3" prevention strategies.  [Read more:]
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/newsletter-archive/2013/10/17.aspx
[Excerpt:] Alzheimer’s disease currently afflicts about 5.4 million Americans, including one in eight people aged 65 and over. Research suggests zinc deficiency can contribute to Alzheimer’s by promoting accumulation of clumps of defective proteins in your brain, which is one of the hallmarks of the disease. The rise in Alzheimer’s prevalence may be related to genetically engineered foods, as herbicides like Roundup are mineral chelators, which means they bind specific nutrients, especially zinc [making such nutrients unusable]. Research suggests the best hope is in prevention, focusing on diet [no GM foods, i.e. no corn, wheat, or soy products, unless organic], exercise and staying mentally active. Avoiding gluten appears to be of critical importance, as is making sure you’re getting plenty of healthful fats (including saturated fats). Fasting also has a remarkably beneficial influence on your brain health. [Click link above for many more details.]

Exercise Prevents Heart Disease as Effectively as Expensive Medications
Harvard and Stanford University researchers reviewed 305 studies comparing this alternative to costly and side-effect-laden drug treatments for heart disease. It was so effective, they said regulators should require it as a comparison in drug clinical trials.  [For what kind of exercise, Read more:]

How to Cut Your Breast Cancer Risk Naturally
These strategies can help suppress cancer cells, not just the symptoms. And you can stack them for a wildly cumulative effect, pushing your cancer risk down towards zero. So why don't conventional doctors talk about them? [Read more:]
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/newsletter-archive/2013/10/20.aspx
[Excerpt:] Thousands of studies show that simple lifestyle strategies can be tremendously protective against cancer. This includes food, supplements, herbs, exercise and sun exposure. Many lifestyle strategies tested have the ability to cut your risk of cancer by about 50 percent; sometimes more. Optimizing your vitamin D levels [as with sun exposure without sun screens], for example, has been shown to cut breast cancer incidence by 77 percent in four years. Protective strategies that are effective against breast cancer also work on these other types of cancer. Cancer prevention strategies will also virtually eliminate most other chronic disorders. Thermography can be an empowering screening tool, as it can detect the potential for cancer. By identifying areas of high inflammation, you can address the underlying cause of the inflammation before cancer has a chance to develop

Genetic Roulette with GMOs, The Gamble of Our Lives
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/newsletter-archive/2013/11/02.aspx
With Introduction of GMOs, Chronic Disease Rates Began to Climb.
Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Vv96D_ZURzs
Featuring testimony from healthcare practitioners, scientists, veterinarians, parents, and others about the health risks of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food, this powerful documentary shares the amazing stories of individuals who saw undeniable improvements after switching to a non-GMO diet. - Over the last two decades, the United States has witnessed a dramatic rise in chronic illnesses that simply were not part of the norm some 30-50 years ago. Since the mid-1990s, the number of Americans suffering from at least three chronic illnesses nearly doubled. Life expectancy has decreased and infant mortality has increased. So what’s changed? Why are so many more Americans getting sick today—and at an earlier age—than ever before? One of the most radical changes that has occurred in the past 20 years is the genetic engineering of our food supply. Genetically engineered soy and corn were introduced into the American diet in 1996. . . . One unintended side effect of this experiment is the creation of foreign and highly allergenic proteins.
