Mad cow disease

Japan's Food Safety Commission says USDA asleep at the wheel on mad cow disease

The USDA has done such a poor job investigating mad cow disease that even other countries like Japan are being forced to conduct their own investigations into the safety of U.S. beef. Hey, isn't that the USDA's job?

Don't be silly. The job of the USDA is to promote U.S. agriculture and cattle ranchers at all costs and to even engage in a massive political cover-up to hide mad cow disease from the world, if necessary. And the agency is doing that job quite well.

But it's not fooling the Japanese. Japan buys a lot of beef from the U.S., and the nation doesn't want its citizens dropping dead from BSE (U.S. regulators couldn't care less, apparently), so it wants to make sure beef imported from the U.S. is free of mad cow disease.

And that noble goal could be easily accomplished by simply testing the cows, right? But the USDA threatens to sue U.S. beef exporters who want to test their own cows for mad cow disease! In other words, the USDA doesn't want anybody testing for the disease. And why? Well, because it would reveal just how widespread mad cow disease really is in this country, and that would hurt beef sales worldwide.

So instead of actually testing the cows, the USDA insists that Japan and other countries should just buy the beef anyway, "because we said so." And that's how the USDA continues to pull the wool over the eyes of nearly everyone when it comes to mad cow disease.

At what point are we going to raid the USDA with FBI agents and arrest the criminals responsible for all this?

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
