Health Impact News Editor Comments: Back in 2010 a bill supporting the sale of raw milk in the state of Wisconsin enjoyed bi-partisan support, passing both the State House and State Senate. Jim Doyle, the governor at the time, vetoed it, in what many observers feel was a caving in to the special interests of Big Dairy. Yet in spite of this overwhelming support and now a new governor, apparently a single Sate Senator is holding up the new bill in committee and calling its supporters “fringe.”

I spoke with Senator Schultz’s chief of staff about moving the Raw Milk bill out of his committee, and do you want to know what he told me?

“Sorry we do not listen to fringe groups” – Dale Schultz’s Chief of Staff, Todd Allbaugh

Fringe, huh? Are you a fringe person that does not deserve to be listened to?

Dale Schultz’s office seems to think so!

As you already know the fight for the legalization of Raw Milk is heating up in Wisconsin. Farmers are being criminalized and our freedoms are being taken away.

Even if you do not drink raw milk, this fight should be very important to you.

If they can criminalize milk then they can criminalize other natural foods that they deem a threat to the establishment.

How long until they regulate your local farmers market?

You and I need to stand up and stop this nonsense right now!

Right now Senator Dale Schultz is stopping the legalization of Raw Milk. Senate Bill 108 has been stuck in his committee on Agriculture, Forestry, and Higher Education since May 26th 2011.

Why will Senator Dale Schultz not bring S.B. 108 up for a vote? Why will he not give the people of Wisconsin the freedom to choose what they drink?

Because of Senator Dale Schultz’ inaction, Amish raw milk farmer Vernon Hershberger faces maximum penalties of $13,000 in fines or 2 1/2 years in jail.

Does that sound like freedom to you?

As I have said before, what this really comes down to is individual rights. Do you own your body or does the government? Do you own your property or does the government?

I need you to call and email Senator Dale Schultz right now at 608-266-0703, Sen.Schultz@legis.wisconsin.gov.

Because of Senator Dale Schultz’s inaction,  Amish raw milk farmer Vernon Hershberger is faced with the possibility of going to jail for up to three years!

Ask him why he is standing against the freedom of Wisconsinites. Demand that he bring S.B. 108, the Raw Milk bill, up for a vote immediately and move it out of his committee.

If you own your body and your property, then the government has no right to tell you what you can and cannot consume. If you own your property then the government has no right to tell you what you can or cannot sell on your own property to willing consumers.

If they can stop you from drinking and selling raw milk then how long will it be before they come after your local farmers market?

Call and email Senator Dale Schultz right away at 608-266-0703, Sen.Schultz@legis.wisconsin.gov.

Tell him to stop standing against your freedom and bring Senate Bill 108 up for a vote right now!

How Did Almonds Surpass Peanuts as America’s Top Nut? The Dark Side of Almonds

How Did Almonds Surpass Peanuts as America’s Top Nut? The Dark Side of Almonds

Pin It

Almonds are now the most-consumed nut eaten in America, surpassing even peanuts. Americans’ consumption of almonds has increased 220 percent since 2005.

Is this meteoric rise in almond consumption due to consumer demand, or consumer compliance?

A look behind the scenes at just how almonds came to dominate the market, and what it takes to produce such large quantities, reveals a dark side to almonds of which most consumers are probably unaware.

Costa Rica Supreme Court: GMO Approval Process Unconstitutional

Costa Rica Supreme Court: GMO Approval Process Unconstitutional

Pin It

In a ruling lauded by Costa Rica’s anti-GMO activists, the country’s Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court struck down the government’s regulatory framework on genetically modified organisms, declaring the process of approval for GMO projects unconstitutional.

In the court’s opinion, Chief Justice Gilbert Armijo Sancho wrote that the regulations violate the Costa Rican Constitution because the secrecy allowed to GMO companies in terms of the genetic information of their products violates the constitutional right to freedom of information.

“This is an important precedent that shows the interests of companies linked to this type of activity – among them the multinational Monsanto which is seeking permits to plant corn – have benefited from the granting of permits in a manner that violates the fundamental rights of the population,” FECON said.

GMO Golden Rice not so “Golden” After All: Farmers Call to Stop GMO Rice Trials

GMO Golden Rice not so “Golden” After All: Farmers Call to Stop GMO Rice Trials

Pin It

GM Golden Rice was developed at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in the Philippines with the hope that it could provide more vitamin A through beta carotene. The project was a huge disaster, however, and basically shelved for years. But then Bill Gates came along, the college-drop-out-turned-billionaire who started Microsoft Corp., looking for something to spend his billions of dollars to promote. All of a sudden, with big money providing jobs to pursue a failed project, GM Golden Rice had new life.

There’s just one problem: the Asian farmers don’t want it. Philippine farmers have called for a halt to field trials after very poor results, large debts, and a concern for their native rice seeds.

Are Experimental Vaccines Growing in a GMO Corn Field Near You?

Are Experimental Vaccines Growing in a GMO Corn Field Near You?

Pin It

With more and more people waking up to the dangers and false claims being made for vaccines today, it is becoming more difficult for the pharmaceutical lobbyists to enact mandatory vaccination laws at the local level. A recent bill in Colorado was defeated when citizens turned out to oppose legislation that would have prohibited vaccine exemptions. Are pharmaceutical companies now looking for new ways to market their vaccines that bypass the freedom to choose completely without the consumer even realizing they are consuming their products? The chemical industry, after all, has been successful for years in getting municipalities to put fluoride in public water supplies completely bypassing consumer choice.

Recently obtained information through a freedom of information act shows that pharmaceutical companies and biotech are teaming up to produce genetically modified corn that will contain vaccines like hepatitis B. There are secret locations along California’s Central Coast where plots of experimental genetically engineered corn are producing proteins for industrial and pharmaceutical uses, including an experimental vaccine for hepatitis B.

In a close vote, Guatemala’s Congress rejects genetically modified seeds in country’s agricultural development. The law would have authorized stricter property rights and risked monopolizing agricultural processes in the country by placing copyrights on agriculture for the next 25 years.
