The Government is Trying to Criminalize Real Food

NaturalNews has documented the FDA's campaigns of intimidation of tyranny against American farmers and has proven that government agents:

  • Destroy private property (pouring raw milk down the drain).
  • Intimidate farmers with threatening letters.
  • Steal valuable equipment (computers, cameras, more) to put companies out of business.
  • Violate search warrants and pillage raw food distribution centers.
  • Grossly misrepresent the facts of the case in order to get judges to sign search warrants.
  • Spread false scare stories about the supposed "dangers" of raw milk.
  • Spend millions of dollars in taxpayer money running covert stakeout operations that monitor the operations of farmers milking cows.

This is all being done to protect the pasteurized dairy industry which sells DEAD MILK that's artificially modified through homogenization. DEAD milk promotes heart disease, food allergies, acne and digestive disorders. (

Pasteurized, homogenized DEAD milk is made from cows that are pumped full of antibiotics and bovine growth hormones (

RAW MILK ("live milk") contains digestive enzymes that help the body digest lactose. In DEAD milk, the lactase enzyme is destroyed, which is why dead milk consumption causes widespread lactose intolerance (especially among those of African descent).
