Can you tell I'm a strong supporter of public health laws? I sure hope so.
I've never seen anyone die of typhus, brucellosis, or cholera. I've no
desire to change that state of affairs any time soon. And I do not think
that public health and food safety laws prohibit us from continuing with
sustainable farming and livestock techniques. I'm praying for the day when
all food is as safe as we can make it, and we can honestly say, "we don't
really need these food safety regulations any more." I hope that when that
day comes, we'll hold on to them as a reminder of the cost of our freedom
The point of this discussion is that although the bacterial disease may be
contained, we have a raging epidemic of metabolic diseases like heart
disease and autoimmune disorders. Medicine has made little impact on these
diseases other than improved surgical techniques which is neither
preventative or curative medicine.
We are smarter about the bacterial diseases now and can contain and control
them without adulterating our food supply. Bacterial diseases are easy to
pinpoint and quantify by source, metabolic diseases are not. Since 1 in 5
American now has an autoimmune disorder (I don't know the stats on heart
disease), which I maintain is toxin induced, it looks like we have an
epidemic that dwarfs the old bacterial epidemics.
The dangerous assumption that our food is safe is unproven just as the
assumption that GMO's are food is unproven. We do not do food performance
trials on human food.
