Constitutional lawyer specializing in food and drug law, Jonathan Emord, talked about the FDA's raids on raw milk producers, and how FDA guidelines are eroding Americans' freedoms. He was joined during the third hour, by Karine Bouis-Towe and Laurie Cohen-Peters, both consumer leaders in the Farm Freedom Coalition. They described FDA raids/sting operations on an Amish dairy farmer in PA, and the company Rawesome in California. If dairy products are not pasteurized, the FDA considers them illegal. Yet, as Bouis-Towe pointed out, the pasteurization process kills off nutrients such as enzymes, minerals, and vitamins and makes no sense to force small farmers to use it, when they maintain hygienic farming practices, and have had no history of contamination.
Contamination typically occurs as a problem related to handling, rather than if a product is pasteurized, Emord added. Small farms with raw milk are being targeted and run out of business as a result of lobbying by larger, factory farms, that don't want them encroaching on their market share, Bouis-Towe noted. Further, Emord cited the double standard when it comes to sushi, which is sold unfettered, even though it's also a raw product.
Emord also spoke about the FDA's history of being captive to the pharmaceutical industry, allowing unsafe drugs on the market. They let the companies that created the pharmaceuticals provide their own safety reports, rather than use third-party independent testing. "Many commonly prescribed drugs are very dangerous substances," he commented. Concerning such practices as enforced vaccines, fortified foods, and water fluoridation, "this paternalistic and very aggressive public health mentality...ends up being something that sacrifices our liberty and health," he stated.
Alien Implant Update
First hour guest, Dr. Roger Leir reported on results from his 16th alien implant removal surgery (view images). The removed object, which was around 6mm in length, put out a strong magnetic field, and also had radio waves coming out of it. Further, the center of the object was so hard, they couldn't cut through it with any lab instruments. Leir also shared the calculations of physicist Dr. Bob Koontz, who suggested that aliens visiting us might be from 300,000 light years away.
