This news article is talking about a research paper that was found talking about how terrorist could contaminate our milk supply. The article was asked though by governemnt not to be published becuase the believe it can be a probelm of national security, and heath issues.
 



www.cnn.com
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The federal government has asked the National Academy of Sciences not to publish a research paper that feds describe as a "road map for terrorists" on how to contaminate the nation's milk supply.

The research paper on biological terrorism, by Stanford University professor Lawrence M. Wein and graduate student Yifan Liu, provides details on how terrorists might attack the milk supply and offers suggestions on how to safeguard it.

The paper appeared briefly May 30 on a password-protected area of the National Academy of Science's Web site.

Journalists use that area of the Web site to get advance copies of articles slated for publication in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

People who downloaded the Wein-Liu paper called the Food and Drug Administration for comment, and the FDA notified the Department of Health and Human Services, which asked the academy to stop the article's publication.

The paper "is a road map for terrorists and publication is not in the interests of the United States," HHS Assistant Secretary Stewart Simonson wrote in a letter to the science academy chief Dr. Bruce Alberts.

The paper gives "very detailed information on vulnerability nodes" in the milk supply chain and "includes ... very precise information on the dosage of botulinum toxin needed to contaminate the milk supply to kill or injure large numbers of people," Simonson wrote.

"It seems clear on its face that publication of this manuscript could have very serious public health and national security consequences."

I agree with the government that if this article was published it would be a threat to national security. If terrorist hadn't have thought of this as an attack. We could be handing over a plan to them on a silver platter.

If terrorist plan was to follow through it would be devistating to our farming industry. It would probably but harding working farmers without a job. Milk is their #1 product besides beef. If they don't have a product that can be sold. Then they make no money, and they'll have to shut down there farm.

If this also were to happen. It would be a health issue as well. Many people need to drink milk. Milk is used in our every day life. Milk is used in ALMOST ever food one eats.

The milk supply (breast milk) has already been contaminated by the terrorists that head up our government. Perchlorate (rocket fuel) contaminates breast milk and groundwater. The Superfund cleanup of toxic waste at deactivated Air Force Bases has also been suspended. Former Air Force Bases are some of the most toxic land anywhere. NO NEED FOR TERRORISTS. OUR OWN GOVERNMENT IS ALREADY KILLING US!!!!

There were a couple of salient points made about exactly this in this thread:

It is a very real, very scary possibility.
