(NaturalNews) I've just completed an interview with Gary Cox, an attorney with the Farm-To-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (www.FTCLDF.org), which provides legal assistance to help protect raw dairy farmers from overzealous government attacks on their freedom.

Here's some of what you'll hear in this interview, which was recorded on August 5th, 2011:

• How the government is becoming more militant in its armed raids on innocent farmers. "I've seen numerous search warrants being carried out; I've even seen it where a SWAT team would come into a family's home in Northern Ohio and hold the family including the children at gunpoint for six hours while the agents searched the home for food," says Gary.

• Details about the Evergreen Acres case in which an innocent farmer is also being threatened by the government.

• Details on the lawsuit against the FDA's ban of the interstate transportation of raw milk.

Additional quotes from Gary Cox in the interview

• Certain individuals in the California Dept of Food and Agriculture are hot and heavy to put raw milk producers out of business and they want to send a strong message.

• So there's some assistant DA in LA County who's trying to make a name for herself or who has a vendetta against small family farmers, or who just has an inflated ego and wants to exercise the power given to the district attorney's office.

• You get these investigators and inspectors who work for a state agency who think they have all the power in the world to just punish a small, law-abiding citizen into submission.

• As a public servant, you really have to be cautious in how you wield the power given to you, and in this case of Rawesome Foods, it's just mind boggling to me that government thinks that there are victims involved in this conduct and that they have to throw people in jail to send a message. It's just beyond my comprehension.

• We constantly get the argument from the government that when people engage in a cow share they're doing nothing but circumventing the law. And my response has always been that look, we have these fundamental these rights, and your law that prevents us from drinking our own raw milk is an attempt to circumvent our fundamental and inalienable rights.

• I think this is really an act of desperation on the part of the LA County prosecutor's office. I know for a fact that the Ventura County DA office has threatened actions against Sharon Palmer. So I think this recent action of arresting these people is not only an escalation but an act of desperation, because I think the DA office in LA is realizing that it's losing control over these people... these people are exercising their fundamental inalienable rights and it's upsetting the District Attorney's office.

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.
