Dairy Farmers Can All Go to Hell

Yesterday, I found the following shocking information on a Canadian website:

November 3, 2010

"November is Crohn's and Colitis Awareness Month... more than 200,000 Canadian men, women, and children (live) with these debilitating diseases...of particular concern and interest is the increasing number of children who are suffering from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis... Researchers at the Institute of Clinical Evaluative Sciences recently found a 50-per-cent rise in the prevalence of IBD in Ontario children, and a rising incidence of Crohn's disease in children under 10 years old."

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for dairy farmers. These men and women represent the hardest working group of people in America, with those same family values and work ethic that once made America strong.

I no longer think that way, and take great pleasure each time one of them goes out of business resulting in the family farm being sold. Dairy farmers are damned. Dairy farmers are scum.

As this column is read by many dairymen, and as my negative comments and feelings will soon be shared with thousands of dairy farmers, let me take this opportunity to address all persons associated with that industry which makes people ill. Please quote me accurately in all future hate mail and death threats. {yawn}

Shame on you. You can all rot in hell for the pain and suffering and harm that that you've knowingly caused to millions of people.

What has got me so worked up?

You who are in the dairy industry have always known how diseased your animals are. You lied to consumers, and have even deceived yourselves. When your cows get sick, you cull them from your herd and send them to slaughter. Before that moment of truth, you continue to milk them and send your bacteria-laden tainted milk to market.

You have created new strains of bacterium which are immune to the antibiotic which generations have consumed in your milk and cheese, and that is the reason antibiotics no longer work--we have overdosed on them.

Johne's Disease and mycobacterium paratuberculosis are well known nightmares to dairymen, although most consumers are unaware of how drinking infected milk or eating infected cheese has taken its toll on America's health.

For years, dairy scientists, dairy magazines, and dairy marketing con artists have spun lie after lie to a trusting public. Coming to terms with truth can be painful, but at last the dairy industry seems to be coming to terms with this heavily self-censored story. Unfortunately, it's too late for those who will live the rest of their lives with irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, or Crohn's Disease.

The May 25, 2005 issue of Hoard's Dairyman (The National Dairy Farm Magazine) contains an editorial (page 386) admitting that the Johne's/Crohn's problem is a continuing nightmare for dairy producers and dairy consumers.

The editorial headline: "Johne's Infection Rates May Be Much Higher Than We Thought."

Some admissions from that editorial:

1) "There are more Johne's-infected cows in North American dairy herds than any of us would have guessed."

2) "Research confirms the hit and miss effectiveness of our common Johne's tests."

3) "There may be three truly infected cows for every one that tests positive."

4) "Real progress will only be made when we treat every cow as if she is Johne's-infected."

Mycobacterium paratuberculosis is the bacterium which causes Johne's in cows and irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn's disease in humans. These bacteria are not killed by pasteurization. American consumers continue to drink body fluids from diseased animals. I have visited many dairy farms, and in each case, those dairymen, out of complete disgust (call it insider knowledge) will not drink the milk they produce, and for good reason.

I find their product disgusting, and I find their deceptive behavior equally disgusting. Their word is no longer honorable, and as a group, they should all hang their heads in shame.

They are fully aware that their Johne's Disease becomes our irritable bowels, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's Disease.
