(NaturalNews) It's always amusing to see how quickly consumers can be
worked up into a false fear frenzy by health authorities. We saw it last
year with the overhyped H1N1 swine flu scare which was fanned into a
flaming fear fest by WHO advisors on the take from vaccine
manufacturers. Now we're getting a new round of fear-mongering from many
of the same sources who are warning us about salmonella contaminated eggs.
According to mainstream news sources, a massive 380-million-egg recall has been announced, and these eggs are all so incredibly dangerous that you have to immediately remove them from your refrigerator and take them back to the store where you bought them so that they can be properly destroyed. This is all backed up by phrases like, "It's not worth the risk," and claims that if people eat the eggs, they are taking "too much of a chance."
But you don't hear warnings to "take your chicken back to the store!" or "it's unsafe to eat your chicken!" Ever wonder why?
Or to phrase the question another way, why is salmonella so dangerous on your eggs, but completely safe on your chicken?
The answer is it's not. It's the exact same risk in both cases: Cook either one
and you destroy salmonella entirely. Infected eggs are no more
dangerous than infected chicken, and infected chicken is apparently so
safe that it's sold every single day at your neighborhood grocery store (without any warnings or alarms, I might add). Nobody at the FDA has even mentioned it is recent memory. Salmonella contaminated chicken is apparently a non-issue.
The real reason for the salmonella scare
Now, here's the real reason why the issue of chicken contaminated with salmonella is almost never publicized: Because to expose the salmonella contamination of chicken would be to expose the sick, filthy and inhumane practices of the factory-farmed conventional chicken industry.
And the (non-organic) chicken industry doesn't want anyone to start looking
into its practices because its practices are just too disgusting for
most people to stomach. You might lose your (chicken McNugget) lunch,
and then you'd probably stop buying chicken. They can't have that.
you don't believe me about the disgusting practices of the chicken
industry, watch this extremely disturbing (but factual) video on NaturalNews.TV about it (WARNING: Extremely graphic. Highly disturbing. Watch at your own risk.) (http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=FF65E...)
So chicken meat gets a free pass: It's okay with the FDA, the CDC and the USDA that Americans are buying salmonella contamination every single day as long as it's in the form of a piece of chicken flesh.
then, are contaminated eggs being flagged as so dangerous? To answer
that, you have to go back to a story I wrote in 2008 called, "FDA Unleashes Mass Irradiation of Spinach, Lettuce and Other Vegetables" (http://www.naturalnews.com/023945.html)
There, following the FDA's demands that spinach and lettuce be irradiated, I explained the FDA's real agenda: "Don't
think the FDA will stop with spinach and lettuce, either. They're
already talking about irradiating tomatoes, peppers and onions. Before
long, radiation could become mandatory for ALL fresh produce..."
It's already happened with almonds, which must now be fumigated or pasteurized
in the United States -- a punitive rule that has severely damaged the
U.S. almond industry. That took place after an outbreak of contamination
with almonds. Similarly, this recent egg contamination fiasco is giving
the FDA precisely the excuse it needs to demand routine pasteurization or irradiation of all eggs.
Meanwhile, salmonella-contaminated chicken will be utterly ignored by
the FDA even as it calls for the mass-pasteurization of "dangerous"
The FDA, you see, will seize upon each contamination event as a leverage point from which to ratchet up its food sterilization agenda, and the agency won't stop until every scrap of fresh food sold at grocery stores is either pasteurized, fumigated or irradiated.
then will the FDA's true agenda of food control be fully realized.
(Insert evil genius laughter here.) And this plan of course involves
outlawing all raw milk, raw almonds,
raw spinach, raw eggs and anything else that might be living. Hence the
recent ramping up of criminal arrests and prosecutions against raw milk producers and living food coops.
The only safe food is dead food
according to the FDA. And they're going to make sure your food is as
dead as possible by exploiting these hyped-up food emergencies as
leverage points from which to assert their "dead foods agenda."
The punch line to all this should be obvious by now: Dead foods lead to dead people. When a population is denied access to health-enhancing living foods (raw foods), its health
begins to deteriorate. This of course create a financial windfall for
the pharmaceutical industry that thrives on suffering and disease. (More vaccines, anyone?)
other words, keeping the food sterilized means keeping the people
diseased. And keeping the people diseased means keeping the sick-care
industry rolling in easy cash. There's nothing like a little sickness to
remind people to keep taking their pills, after all...
Don't think that this egg recall
has anything to do with protecting the health of consumers. Cigarettes
kill hundreds of thousands of people a year and they're perfectly legal
to sell. Even toxic chemical food ingredients
like MSG, aspartame and sodium nitrite remain perfectly legal, too. If
the FDA cared about protecting people from dangerous foods, it would
have banned disease-causing ingredients long ago. But instead, the
agency going after your raw milk, raw eggs, raw spinach and raw almonds.
