What You Don't Know About Your Food And Water Can Kill You. What You Do Know Can Heal Energize and Save You.
This book is an eye opening exposure about the dangerous and deplorable condition of the food and water you consume, organic food and manufacturers, cancer, nutrients, vitamins, superfood supplements, corporate deciet and regulatory malfeasance. It provides a different and deeper look at nutrition giving a broader perspective on basic nutrition to enhance your understanding as well as providing the most in depth assessment on the state of our food and water. Do you really know how bad things are? Do you think the organizations and agencies responsible for protecting your health are doing their job? You owe it to yourself, family and friends to know the truth. It will alarm you and motivate you to make immediate changes in your life. Get straight to the hard hitting facts and learn how to deal with them. You can protect yourself and your children. You can heal yourself and you can prevent disease. You can be a force for change toward a better existence. Please act now because it is your life.
Livestock and poultry farmers use antibiotics to facilitate growth as well as to prevent and fight infections in the animals. An added side effect from the administration of synthetic hormones is that the resulting increase in infections and disease results in livestock farmers using increased levels of antibiotics to try to overcome the infections. This leaves a greater residue in the animal which subsequently can make its way down the food chain to you. These substances cause allergic reactions in some people ranging from mild to severe. It also doesn’t kill all the bacteria exacerbating the development of drug resistant bacteria. This undermines the effectiveness of drugs used to combat infections in humans whereby putting people at higher risk of illness and death.118, 119 To make things worse, some farms administer antibiotics as a function of their protocol just in case. Meaning, they use them on livestock even though they don’t have an infection. The Center for Science in the Public Interest states it simply. 1.) There is widespread use of human-use antibiotics in livestock production. 2.) Much of that use is routine and prolonged “subtherapeutic” dosing of animals with antibiotics such as penicillin and tetracycline to speed animal growth. 3.) That use causes food borne bacteria and other bacteria to become resistant to the same drugs used to treat bacterial infections in humans.
The epidemic explosion of the drug resistant bacteria MRSA (pronounced Mersa) has gotten much press in the last couple years and researchers have linked multiple drug resistant bacteria to the indiscriminate use of antibiotics in farm animal care. MRSA kills. Its infections are rising rapidly. From the 1980’s to 1991 infections increased 29% and from 1999 to 2005 they doubled.120 Let me put it into better perspective. MRSA killed FIFTY PERCENT more people in 2005 than AIDS.121 The CDC – Center for Disease Control estimated that 18,650 people died from MRSA and only 12,500 people died from AIDS in the United States in 2005.122, 123 Imagine trying to say goodbye to someone you love who has only the strength to look at you but cannot respond. Imagine someone so fiercely independent you wouldn’t dare try to get in their way. Now see that person so weak, depleted, drained that you’re telling them it is ok to let go. Imagine saying goodbye to someone you love that is alive but has only the strength to look at you but cannot respond but in a blank stare. Get the picture!! One last note, the CSPI also notes the following: “The spread of antibiotic-resistant Campylobacter demonstrates the failure of the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) antibiotics policies. Fluoroquinolones(antibiotics) are critically important for treating life-threatening food borne and other bacterial infections. Even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urged the FDA not to approve fluoroquinolones for treating flocks of poultry, but the FDA caved in to drug-industry pressure. As a result the predicted problem has occurred: Campylobacter, which causes food poisoning, is becoming resistant to fluoroquinolones. That will make it harder to treat those illnesses. If Salmonella becomes resistant, illnesses may be fatal.” 124 In fact the CDC- Center for Disease Control states that these infections caused problems in treating illnesses with increased rates of illness and death.125
** a point to be taken here is to think about the H1N1 Swine Flu situation.
