Killing Ourselves with Cleanliness and Trusting theUntrustworthy
“But raw milk from a Jersey cow is a totally different substance from what I'd thoughtof as milk. If you do not own a cow or know someone who owns a cow, I must cautionyou never to try raw milk straight from the teat of a Jersey cow, because it would becruel to taste it once and not have access to it again. Only a few people in Americaremember this type of milk now, elderly people mostly, who grew up with a cow. Theycome to the farm sometimes, looking for that taste from their childhood.”-Kristin Kimball, American writer, farmer city-refugee, from
The Dirty Life: On Farming, Food, and Love
Perhaps the worst thing that has happened to food in the modern erawas the creation of pasteurization for milk, byLouis Pasteur.In 1862, heating raw milk to eliminate most of the germs(pathogens) seemed like a great idea. After all, people were dying allover the world from mysterious illnesses that Pasteur identified asmicroscopic organisms, which we now know as bacteria.We know much more than we did in the mid-1800s about bacteria.Back then was a time when cleanliness was a matter of removing dirtfrom your hands before coming to supper and bathing once a week(or a couple of times a year, in some cases) to stop the body fromsmelling bad (if you couldn’t afford perfume, which was invented tocover bad body odour). Surgeons didn’t even wash their hands orbutt out their cigarettes before dipping their hands into the bodies of patients on their operating tables.When Pasteur invented the process that came to be named after him,he was hailed as a hero. He killed germs. Pasteurized milk and otherfoods would be “clean.” We now know that our bodies are not composed only of our own cells(and invading bacteria and viruses that sneak in). We have sometwenty times as many good bacteria living inside us as we have of our own body cells. These bacteria are so important that we couldnot live without them. Most are in our gut (they help us digest good)and on our skin (where they protect us against invasion from theenvironment). In lesser numbers, good and critically importantbacteria appear in many other places on and in our bodies.Milk was, at one time, called “the perfect food” because it containedso many nutrients and beneficial elements (we now know as goodbacteria, vitamins and minerals). Now, thanks to pasteurization, ourmilk is mostly white water, with any goodness being added manuallyat the dairy, such as vitamins.
Pasteur was so influential on the topic of human health that ourancestors accepted that all microbes were “germs,” bad for us bydefinition. We came to believe that if we couldn’t see it and it wasliving, it was bad.We now know that by killing off so many of the good bacteria that aidour health, we have made ourselves unhealthy. Milk, “the perfectfood,” is now perfectly useless for our health, except for the vitaminsadded after the cow and pasteurization.We use mouthwash to make our mouths perfectly “clean.” Our mouthis another of those first lines of defence against disease invasion.With a “clean” mouth, our bodies are open to disease against whichwe have no protection. Clean, but vulnerable.We use electric toothbrushes to remove that terrible plaque thatsupposedly causes decay and destroys our health. Many of us spendmany minutes each day brushing far longer than a dental hygienistspends cleaning our teeth. This does not make sense, but it delightsdentists. Patients keep coming back to their offices when they haveweak dentin and super sensitive teeth, for which they must use aspecial toothpaste for sensitive teeth. Not necessary. Sensitive teethwere almost unheard of among our ancestors.We suffer pain, have no protection against disease invasion, but ourmouths are “clean” according to the advertisers. Who profit from ourignorance and reluctance to learn what we should know.Speaking of “clean,” a TV commercial shows CLR efficiently removingcalcium, lime and rust from devices in our homes. Then we can justflush it down the drain. “Clean” homes. But sewage treatmentfacilities do not remove chemicals from waste water, nor do watertreatment plants remove them from incoming water beforecommunities downstream of our chemical waste drink “treated” waterthat has biological pathogens removed, but not chemical waste.Somebody is drinking water with chemical components that arestrong enough to dissolve rust.Back in the days of our grandparents and earlier, kids got sick.Sometimes regularly. Sometimes parents with large families causedall their children to be infected with diseases like measles, just sothey would all gain immunity at once. As adults, they got fewdiseases because their immune systems had been built up inchildhood. It’s commopn today for adults to be off work several timesduring the year because their weak immune systems allowed them toinvaded by some pathogen.
Today we have children who must, in some jurisdictions, take asmany as 48 vaccinations (with documented evidence to prove it)before they will be allowed to enter school. Their parents may beforced to home-school if they refuse to subject their kids to thesevaccines.And what is in the vaccines? To avoid legal ramifications, I will letyou do some research yourself. But here is a quote fromNaturalNews.com: “Suspicions have been confirmed for those wary of vaccinating theirchildren. A recent large study corroborates other independent studysurveys comparing unvaccinated children to vaccinated children. “They all show that vaccinated children have two to five times morechildhood diseases, illnesses, and allergies than unvaccinatedchildren.” What kids in school have these days are “asthma, reoccurringtonsillitis, chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, allergies, eczema, earinfections, diabetes, sleep disorders, bedwetting, dyslexia, migraines,hyperactivity, ADD, epilepsy, depression, and slower development of speech or motor skills.” But schools rarely have cases of chicken pox or measles. Vaccineslook after that.Now in my senior years myself, I sometimes face a new medicalprofessional (such as in a lab) who asks if I brought a list of mymedications with me. I say I don’t take any. Some don’t believe meuntil I insist that I don’t take medication because I don’t need any.They say I’m lucky. I know that luck has nothing to do with it. I amvery attentive to my health and that of my wife. I have studied andlearned.That requires commitment to learning what is real about healthclaims and what is fraud. Or even what is dangerous to humanhealth, even if proposed by a family doctor or in advertising bypharmaceutical companies.Most people have no interested in doing that much work. The olderthey get, the more they suffer. They just consider that they have badluck. They refuse to consider that they were lazy or ignorant in theiryounger years.I was born with two autoimmune diseases (technically they are calledsyndromes) that were in both sides of my family. I studied andlearned how to minimize their symptoms and maximize my own

Very important information that people need to see! Thanks lots! From another unmedicated older person.

It will show up in your Shelf, but not the Shelf that others see. (If you will check, you'll see that this is not on the Reading Feed. (I have seen this problem many times before.)

I can vouch for the difference between raw milk and the process imposter we buy in the supermarket. Also, I remember watching watching a CSI episode in which it was immediately determined that some skeletal remains were not paleo-indiain because there were no caries in the teeth. (I know that this is not a proper citation!) Fact is, many of the new super-bugs are being created by modern medicine.
