1- SECOND HAND SMOKE How did we fall for that joke? The main components of smoke are carbon dioxide and water vapor. Carbon dioxide is turned into sugar and cellulose by plants, and into limestone by coastlines; the water vapor enters the water cycle and comes back as rain. People smoked for thousands of years without any problem, until the chemicals used to process the tobacco caused the cancer in smokers. Second hand smoke is not more dangerous than using cell phones, eating chocolate, drinking alcohol, having breasts or testicles, brushing your teeth, breathing the air, spraying Round-Up on your lawn or taking thousands of daily x-rays of your skull.
2- BROWN EGGS Another lie, that most people believe, is the non-existent difference between white and brown eggs? Egg color depends on the breed of the chicken. White-feathered chickens with white ear lobes lay white eggs and red-feathered ones with red ear lobes lay brown eggs (this may not apply to all breeds). Almost everyone jumped on the bandwagon “brown eggs are local eggs, and local eggs are fresh”. That’s why today, brown eggs still cost more than white eggs.
Another fallacy is the misleading term “cage-free”. A warehouse is just a bigger cage and the truth is that cage-free hens are often still very crowded, with no access to the outdoors. Just a marketing ploy to charge more money.
And it doesn’t stop here: there is no commercial “organic egg” sold anywhere. I challenge any company to prove that they sell organic eggs.
3- MILK Only one product is needed to prove how deviant the dairy industry is and how companies put profit over consumer safety. Monsanto Chemical Co., maker of fine poisons such as DDT, agent orange, Roundup and more, spent around half a billion dollars inventing a shot to inject into cows, to force a cow to produce MORE milk. Unfortunately, they created their Frankenstein Posilac (rbGH) shot that directly affected all test animals, and hid the test results from the public. The Canadians read enough of this report (before it was stolen) to reject rbGH for their country. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) insists that IGF-1 is destroyed in the stomach.
Most cow’s milk has measurable quantities of herbicides, pesticides, up to 200 times the safe levels of dioxins, up to 52 powerful antibiotics, blood, pus, feces, bacteria and viruses. Commercial regular and organic cow milk has 59 active hormones, scores of allergens, fat and cholesterol. Of those 59 hormones one is a powerful GROWTH hormone called Insulin Growth Factor ONE (IGF-1). The medical world says IGF-1 is a key factor in the rapid growth and proliferation of breast, prostate and colon cancers, and we suspect that most likely it will be found to promote ALL cancers.
The calcium in cow’s milk is basically useless because it has insufficient magnesium content. There may also be prions in the milk and meat. This is a crystalline substance that acts like a virus… with an “incubation” period of from 5 to 30 years. The end result is MAD COW DISEASE!
