(Natural News) The majority of “farm” animals in America are not raised in pastures, wandering around out in the sunshine and fresh air, as the meat and dairy industries hope all the carnivores (and vegetarians) would believe. Even most fish harvested for mass consumption are not “wild caught,” but rather bred in crowded lakes or even indoor tanks while being shot up with growth hormones, genetically modified with larger breeds (like salmon with eel), and jacked up with antibiotics to stave off infections. More than 75 percent of the world’s antibiotics are given to “farmed” animals in confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs) in an attempt to eliminate infections from the overcrowded quarters that are infested with urine and feces. It gets worse. Those antibiotics fail to kill off the most dangerous kinds of bacteria – E. coli and yes, deadly Salmonella.
Old MacDonald had a farm, his animals were infested with E. coli and Salmonella, E-I-E-I-O
Today’s factory-farm animals are consuming processed and genetically modified wheat, corn, and soy that’s also sprayed with chemical herbicides (Roundup) and carcinogenic insecticides. These are fat-soluble toxins that concentrate in the eggs, milk, and flesh of the animals. We’re talking about nearly all of the non-organic meat, fish, and dairy processed and sold in every grocery store, supermarket, convenient store, fast food joint, and dine-in restaurant across America.
In other words, most of the pesticides humans consume come from eating animals and their by-products (including milk and eggs), not what’s sprayed on fruits and vegetables. Imagine that. Can you see the crop-dusters flying over the fields now?
Animals on factory farms in America are fed a total of 13 million pounds of antibiotics in their feed each year because it makes them grow larger while being less prone to infection. This process kills off the bacteria in the animal’s intestines, except for the kind that are immune to it – namely, the most vicious kind of antibiotic-resistant bacteria known to mankind, such as Salmonella and Clostridia. In fact, first line antibiotics such as cotrimoxazole, ampicillin and nitrofuranton are all virtually useless against E. coli. Watch “Food that Kills” and learn more about salmonella symptoms mimicking the flu symptoms.
Approximately 48 million people get sick every year from food borne illnesses, including Salmonella and E. coli poisoning, mostly from eating poorly cooked meat or from contaminating kitchen countertops with raw meat, and then transferring those parasites and pathogens to other food. Guess how many people get the “flu” each year? About 48 million. Coincidence?
Did you know that gastroenteritis, enteric fever, and typhoid fever are all types of Salmonella infection? How many of those cases last year did medical doctors misdiagnose as the flu, and how many of those sicknesses did the CDC document in their database as influenza, in order to spread propaganda to hype up sales of the epic-fail mercury-laden flu shot?
Symptoms of food poisoning and the flu are virtually the same
We’ve all been there. You’re sick and miserable. First you get stomach cramps. Then you start experiencing chills, dehydration, fatigue, fever, sweating, dizziness, bloating, diarrhea, indigestion, nausea, and then comes the relentless vomiting and the intolerable headaches. You’re weak all over. The CDC calls that the flu. The news on TV says “get your flu shot” because the flu is spreading fast this year. Free flu shots are advertised almost everywhere – at schools, at work, at pharmacies, at WalMart. The problem is that not only does the flu shot rarely work and contain dangerous neurotoxins, but you probably don’t even have influenza, because the symptoms of food poisoning are nearly identical. Next time you hear there’s a “flu outbreak” consider the likely odds that it might just be food-borne illness outbreaks from tainted meats instead. In other words, you didn’t catch the flu at school or work, you got stricken by CAFO disease.
So this year, please, before you run out and get jabbed with the toxic flu shot that’s chock full of brain-paralyzing mercury, Alzheimer’s-causing aluminum, corpse-embalming formaldehyde, and migraine-headache-causing MSG, consider cooking your meat well-done, or simply avoiding meat and dairy all together. That way, you don’t get salmonella or E-coli poisoning and think you caught the flu instead.
Try natural remedies, like elderberry, garlic, and oil of oregano if you’re interested in killing bacteria and viruses without having side effects and deadly infections that get misdiagnosed by those confounded and perplexed M.D.s.
