Actually, the modern world's food and drug industry and the campaigns being waged to get us to eat what THEY want us to eat belongs on ATS as much or
more than many other topics, and the OP clearly demonstrates that he has fallen victim to the brainwashing.
Cyclamates were outlawed how many years ago for causing cancer? And yet they have continued to use them in Europe all these years with no problems.
The sugar industry got cyclamates outlawed because they taste good enough to cause more people to stop using sugar. All the warnings on saccharin have
a similar cause; saccharin is still one of the safer artificial sweeteners.
Conversely, the process used to bleach flour in the US is not legal in Europe because it leaves behind trace amounts of formaldehyde. (Maybe that's
why so many Americans act like their brains are pickled - they are!
) But Americans must have their white bread!
Pasteurized and homogenized milk IS bad for you. The reason so many people suffer from "lactose intolerance" is because pasteurization kills the
enzymes that would otherwise help you digest the milk. It also destroys most of the vitamins - that's why they have to "fortify" the milk. There is
a dairy in Claremore OK that sells raw milk, but you have to go there to get it. Even though it's like 80 miles away, I go get it when I can. A while
back one of their cows died of rabies and they tried to shut the dairy down. Weeks later they finally admitted that rabies can't even be transmitted
through milk, but before that they had actually encouraged people to get rabies shots!! Talk about scare tactics! Whole RAW milk is good for us (and
would be cheaper than the processed milk) but it's against the law. Why do you suppose that is? (and don't start ranting about tuberculosis; it's
hardly a problem any more).
Back in the 20s, Americans could buy fresh raw whole milk, real clabber and buttermilk, luscious naturally yellow butter, fresh farm cheeses and
cream in various colors and thicknesses. Today's milk is accused of causing everything from allergies to heart disease to cancer, but when Americans
could buy Real Milk, these diseases were rare. In fact, a supply of high quality dairy products was considered vital to American security and the
economic well being of the nation.
And here are a few tidbits about your so-called "healthy" soy products:
# Soy phytoestrogens disrupt endocrine function and have the potential to cause infertility and to promote breast cancer in adult women. # Soy
phytoestrogens are potent antithyroid agents that cause hypothyroidism and may cause thyroid cancer. In infants, consumption of soy formula has been
linked to autoimmune thyroid disease.
