DIRTY SECRET BEHIND RAWESOME RAID
AUGUST 7, 2011.
I won’t keep you in suspense.
Here it is: THE FDA WAS ONE OF THE AGENCIES THAT RAIDED RAWESOME.
Why is that dirty? Because while FDA is clucking about raw milk, it is continuing to hide THE LARGEST CRIME IN AMERICAN HISTORY.
THE FDA, YOU SEE, HAS APPROVED DRUGS, AS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE, THAT KILL 106,000 PEOPLE A YEAR.
Yes, you heard that right.
The citation on this is: Barbara Starfield, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Journal of the American Medical Association, July 26, 2000, “Is US health really the best in the world?”
I have interviewed Dr. Starfield, and she has confirmed that since her paper was published, the FDA has made no contact with her to enlist her help in remedying the situation (the ongoing crime). There has been no remedy.
(See Starfield, JAMA, July 26, 2000, “Is US health really the best in the world?”, and, click here to read my interview with Dr Starfield.)
Add it up. Over each decade, the medicines the FDA certifies as safe kill a million Americans. A MILLION. PER DECADE. LIKE CLOCKWORK.
The FDA is the gatekeeper. It is the single government agency responsible for protecting the public from dangerous pharmaceuticals.
And they are worked up about raw milk.
In 1994, while I was running for a seat in the US Congress, I made many statements urging the nutritional industry and allied natural health interests to form and fund a true PR wing that would attack the FDA for its unconscionable crimes, that would get accurate stories about this in the press, come hell or high water.
I was met with apathy, excuses, and fear. It was disgusting.
WITH SO MANY LIVES LOST AND SO MANY MORE HANGING IN THE BALANCE, you don’t play this game by waiting. You play OFFENSE. You play to win. With the truth.
The FDA must be forced back against the wall, and feel the great need to admit its massive culpability and surrender to the criminal consequences.
That’s what I said in 1994, and that’s what I say now.
Let’s get real. If you knew that a federal agency was directly responsible for a million deaths per decade, wouldn’t you feel that agency should be disbanded, from the ground up, and rebuilt along moral lines, while its leaders and so-called executives are dealt severe and crushing criminal penalties?
Is anyone out there?
Is there a potato head at the LA Times with enough active brain cells and enough guts to take this on, while the FDA is raiding raw milk in your city?
