Raw Milk Still Illegal in Wisconsin

Vintage Milk Can Raw Milk Still Illegal in Wisconsin

by Wisconsin Campaign for Liberty

Right now raw milk, milk taken directly from cows, is illegal.

Farmers can be fined, taken to court and even jailed for selling a product to willing consumers.

Does that make any sense to you? Me neither.

Right now is the time for us to change this. Senate Bill 108 would legalize the sale of raw milk, decriminalize innocent farmers, and allow consumers to buy the milk they choose.

SB108 is currently stuck in the Agriculture, Forestry, and Higher Education committee.

We already have almost 1400 petitions that we will soon be delivering to legislators but before we do that we need more senators signed on as co-sponsors.

Currently Senators Grothman, Darling, S. Fitzgerald, Galloway, Hansen, Holperin, Kapanke, Lasee and Leibham are sponsors.

Several legislators that where sponsors of the bill that failed last year though have not signed on to this new, even better bill.

You and I need to step up the pressure on these senators to co-sponsor the new Raw Milk Bill so that farmers can be free to sell their products.

Contact your senator by clicking here, and then contact Senators Lena Taylor (608 266-5810) and Dale Schultz (608-266-0703), ask them why they have not signed on to the new Raw Milk Bill, and tell them to please co-sponsor SB108 right now.

These legislators need to show us that they truly believe in the rights of farmers and that they did not just sign on to the raw milk bill last year to look good because they knew it would not be signed by Doyle.

This bill has overwhelming support by the people of Wisconsin and last year passed both the state senate and assembly.

Legislators will be pressed hard by the the agricultural milk industry who want to keep control of how, where, and when farmers can sell their own products. We need to press back harder!

Click here to contact your senator, then contact Senators Lena Taylor (608-266-5810) and Dale Schultz (608-266-0703). Tell them raw milk must be legalized because farmers should not be criminalized and consumers should have a right to choose.

We need to legalize raw milk, plain and simple, with no strings attached.

In Liberty,

P.S. Why is the Wisconsin government afraid of all-natural milk? Why do they want to criminalize farmers for simply selling milk from a cow? Call Senators Lena Taylor (608 266-5810) and Dale Schultz (608-266-0703) and tell them to co-sponsor SB108 right now.

Therapeutic Use of the High-Fat Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet in Autism Spectrum Disorders

Therapeutic Use of the High-Fat Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet in Autism Spectrum Disorders

A new study published in Frontiers in Pediatrics has concluded that the high-fat low-carb ketogenic diet may improve mitochondrial function in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

The ketogenic diet was originally developed at John Hopkins Hospital in the 1920s to treat children with epilepsy. The diet has proved successful over a long period of history of stopping seizures in children where drugs fail.

The diet fell out of favor in recent years, due to the bias against saturated fats. However, with several meta-studies being published in recent years showing that there is no scientific basis of linking saturated fat consumption to heart disease, the ketogenic diet is being studied in many disease applications, including cancer, diabetes, and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and ALS.

There have also been studies conducted and published regarding the ketogenic diet’s effect on ASD. One study published last year (2013) in France showed a ketogenic diet improves multiple autistic behaviors.

Study: Low Salt Intake Associated with High Death Rates

Study: Low Salt Intake Associated with High Death Rates

A new article in the New England Journal of Medicine (August 14, 2014) studied the sodium levels in 101,945 persons from 17 countries. The scientists examined the association between sodium excretion and the outcome of death and major cardiovascular events. Sodium excretion correlates directly with sodium ingestion.

This article is another in a long-line of salt articles debunking the myth that we need to lower our salt intake. I have tested thousands of patients for their salt levels. I can assure you that the vast majority of patients are low in salt.

Einkorn is an ancient grain that is not yet commonly known in the western world, but used often in the Mediterranean region and in the mountainous areas of Europe. This grain is slightly finicky, completely delicious, good for you, has a slight yellowish tinge, and smells (and even looks) a little like corn flour.

Because of einkorn’s lower gluten elasticity, the following baking tips will help you bake successfully with einkorn and avoid a lot of frustration.

A Low Carbohydrate Diet Cures Diabetes

A Low Carbohydrate Diet Cures Diabetes

Diabetes is the great failure of the medical system. A generation of following the high-carb low-fat USDA approved food pyramid, along with Big Food’s highly processed carbohydrate-rich products, have produced a national epidemic of obesity and diabetes.

The medical system’s answer to type 2 diabetes is drugs. These drugs, however, are highly toxic with serious side effects, and they don’t work. A recent study that showed that insulin may actually accelerate death in type 2 diabetes, for example.

Diabetes, however, is not a condition that is caused by a lack of drugs. Research clearly links type 2 diabetes (and now type 3 diabetes) to insulin resistance caused by excessive carbohydrates in the diet. This issue is finally starting to get more attention in the mainstream media, fortunately.

In a recent article published in the journal Nutrition, the authors showed that there is continued success in using low-carbohydrate diets in the treatment of diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
