Excerpts:

If raw milk is so dangerous, why is it that you can buy raw milk anywhere, including out of vending machines within two blocks of the United Nations World Health Organization headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland? And why can you buy it everywhere else in Switzerland? Don’t those Swiss know they are putting their dairy industry in great danger?

Someone is going to get sick and, poof, that would be the end of the Swiss chocolate business. By the way, the Swiss, who have been consuming unpasteurized milk in those mountains for 1,000 years, have the second-longest life expectancy in the world after only Japan, another place where you can buy raw milk in stores.

And how about those foolish French? You know, the people with the lowest incidence of heart disease, the third-highest life expectancy and the highest consumption of raw milk in the Western world?

The French culture is famous for how it knows and appreciates good food. The French buy raw milk in supermarkets, at farmers markets, on street corners and out of vending machines all over the country every day of the year. Incidentally, the French dairy industry is even bigger than Wisconsin’s dairy industry. Take raw milk away from them, and you would have rioting in the streets.

No one has died from drinking raw milk in the United States in 50 years. Go ahead, Google it. And then Google the Swiss study of 16,000 children (Gabriela study) that revealed that children who drink raw milk are 48% less likely to have problems with allergies and asthma than those who are raised without it. Think about those numbers. How much would American mothers pay for a pill that reduced the chances of their children having these serious health problems by 50%? The drug companies would kill to have a drug like that.

There are 7 billion people on the planet, most of them raised on raw milk.

Diet Soda Sales Plummet as Consumers’ Understanding of Deadly Health Risks Grow

Soda consumption is now in “freefall,” having dropped to its lowest point since 1995, with diet sodas taking the greatest hit.

One of the largest studies of its kind found that drinking just two diet drinks a day can increase your risk of an early death from heart disease by 50 percent. Previous research looking at aspartame toxicity also found a clear association between aspartame consumption and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and leukemia.

Obesity Now Threatens to Overtake Hunger as Global Health Concern Number One

Obesity Now Threatens to Overtake Hunger as Global Health Concern Number One

In 1950, the number of starving individuals on Earth was estimated to be around 700 million; 100 million people, primarily in rich countries, were obese. By 2010, the world’s hungry had marginally grown to 800 million, while the number of obese citizens of the world had exploded to 500 million. Estimates suggest that by 2030, more than one billion people, worldwide, will fall into the obese category.

Illinois Legislators Back Off Raw Milk Ban After Consumer Outrage

Illinois Legislators Back Off Raw Milk Ban After Consumer Outrage

Under current Illinois law, farmers can sell an unlimited amount of raw milk on the farm without a permit. Legislators and health officials were working hard to completely banish farm-to-consumer agreements in some sneaky ways. This was not lost on Illinois’ thriving raw milk market.

Now, a proposed bill in Illinois banning the sale and distribution of natural or “raw” milk, has come to a screeching halt this session after legislators heard from thousands of natural milk supporters.

The Health Benefits of Maple Syrup: Why You Should Replace Processed Sugar with Maple Syrup

Maple syrup is one of the many wonders of the world and far more than a simple sweetener. Maple syrup is not only rich in essential nutrients such as manganese as well as zinc, but 34 new beneficial compounds discovered just a few years ago have been confirmed to play a key role in human health.

Antioxidants found in maple syrup have anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, and anti-diabetic properties.

Soy-Based Formula Linked To Seizures In Children

Soy-Based Formula Linked To Seizures In Children

Phytoestrogens in soy-based formulas are known to carry greater risks than benefits for infants. Babies fed soy-based formula had 13,000 to 22,000 times more isoflavones in their blood than babies fed milk-based formula. New data published in PLoS One shows that consumption of soy formula may also be associated with a higher rate of seizures in children. In addition, while true cancer of the prostate, carcinoma, is seldom seen in infants and children, other forms of malignant tumors may develop and more cases are appearing in developed nations where the link appears to center around soy infant formula.
