Corporation faces criminal charges for concealing own study in which cows died after eating its genetically modified corn Dr Eva Sirinathsinghji

Biotech giant Syngenta has been criminally charged with denying knowledge that its genetically modified (GM) Bt corn kills livestock during a civil court case that ended in 2007 [1].

Syngenta’s Bt 176 corn variety expresses an insecticidal Bt toxin (Cry1Ab) derived from the bacterium, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) and a gene conferring resistance to glufosinate herbicides. EU cultivation of Bt 176 was discontinued in 2007. Similar varieties however, including Bt 11 sweet corn are currently cultivated for human and animal consumption in the EU.

(NaturalNews) Suspicions have been confirmed for those wary of vaccinating their children. A recent large study corroborates other independent study surveys comparing unvaccinated children to vaccinated children.

They all show that vaccinated children have two to five times more childhood diseases, illnesses, and allergies than unvaccinated children.

Originally, the recent still ongoing study compared unvaccinated children against a German national health survey conducted by KiGGS involving over 17,000 children up to age 19. This currently ongoing survey study was initiated by classical homoeopathist Andreas Bachmair.

However, the American connection for Bachmair’s study can be found at VaccineInjury.info website that has added a link for parents of vaccinated children to participate in the study. So far this ongoing survey has well over 11,000 respondents, mostly from the U.S.A. Other studies have surveyed smaller groups of families.

Nevertheless, the results were similar. Of course, none of these studies were picked up by the MSM (mainstream media). None were funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or the World Health Organization (WHO) or any national or international health agency or medical profession group (http://healthimpactnews.com).

They don’t dare compare the health of unvaccinated children to vaccinated children objectively and risk disrupting their vaxmania (vaccination mania). The focus for all the studies was mostly on childhood illnesses occurring as the children matured.

Dramatic, debilitating, or lethal vaccine injuries were not the focus since so few, five percent or less, actually get reported to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Injury Reporting System) in the U.S.A. for various reasons including:

* It’s a complicated system that takes time from a doctor’s practice.
* Most parents don’t know about it.
* Only adverse reactions that occur immediately after vaccinations are considered.
* Since VAERS is voluntary, most doctors don’t want to incriminate themselves with vaccination injuries and maintain their denial of vaccine dangers.

Consequently, even the most terrible adverse reactions are minimally acknowledged, while long term negative health issues resulting from vaccines are not even considered relevant.

Different surveys summarized

The childhood diseases usually posed to respondents by the independent surveys involved asthma, reoccurring tonsillitis, chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, allergies, eczema, ear infections, diabetes, sleep disorders, bedwetting, dyslexia, migraines, hyperactivity, ADD, epilepsy, depression, and slower development of speech or motor skills.

In 1992, a New Zealand group called the Immunization Awareness Society (IAS) surveyed 245 families with a total of 495 children. The children were divided with 226 vaccinated and 269 unvaccinated. Eighty-one families had both vaccinated and unvaccinated children.

The differences were dramatic, with unvaccinated children showing far less incidence of common childhood ailments than vaccinated children (http://www.vaccineinjury.info/images/stories/ias1992study.pdf).

From a different survey in the South Island New Zealand city of Christchurch, among children born during or after 1977, none of the unvaccinated children had asthma events where nearly 25% of the vaccinated children were treated for asthma by age 10 (http://www.vaccineinjury.info/images/stories/ias1992study.pdf).

Many of the comments from non-vaccinating parents to VaccineInjury.info for the ongoing Bachmair survey mentioned vaccination danger and developing true immunity naturally were concerns (http://www.vaccineinjury.info).

A PhD immunologist who wrote the book Vaccine Illusion, Dr. Tetyana Obukhanych, has gone against the dogma of her medical training and background. She asserts that true immunity to any disease is not conferred by vaccines. Exposure to the disease, whether contracted or not, does (http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org).

Perhaps the most informal grass-roots survey going on now is by Tim O’Shea, DC, author of Vaccination is Not Immunization. He simply has non-vaccinating parents email him with comparisons of their children’s health to friends and families they know with vaccinated children. That and more is available on his site (http://www.thedoctorwithin.com).

Lab-created artificial species will outnumber natural life 50-to-1, financial firm claims

Aaron Dykes

RELATED: Genetic Genocide: Humanity’s Greatest Threat

Biotech and other emerging technology is jeopardizing the future of the human race.

In its latest effort, Fidelity Investments is aiming to drive billions of dollars of global finance capital into the emerging field of “synthetic biology”, using promotions and social media (as in its “Follow the Green Line” ad campaign) to raise interest. Fidelity is also trying to take on water shortage issues, “personalized medicine” and has partnered with the TED Talks (along with dozens of other firms) that have become a self-proclaimed authority on where technology is going. For Fidelity, it is part of an effort to bolster the firm’s image as responsible and innovative. But is it?

Just as big money has backed carbon credit schemes and green technology, Fidelity is making a push to back ‘synthetic biology,’ which it says could be the “defining technology of the 21st Century,” though admittedly it is still in the ‘experimental phase’. In essence, synthetic biology is just another buzz term for what has already become the very controversial and dangerous field of biotech & genetic engineering.

For example, scientists have shown that genetically-engineered salmon– hailed below in Fidelity’s promo video as a milestone in innovation– could wipe out the less aggressive natural salmon population within 40 generations. Fidelity also touts the use of GM bacteria to produce new malaria vaccines– part of the larger emerging field of “pharming,” or growing pharmaceutical products inside genetically-modified crops, animals, and microorganisms. For all its potential promises, GMOs have instead been linked with organ failure, infertility and reproductive problems, as well as widespread environmental impact.

Ignoring all these known risks, Fidelity’s ThinkBig webpage brags about their part in the attempt to redesign life with man-made architecture, claiming that labs could soon create 50 times the number of naturally-occurring species known to exist on the planet. And clearly that means big cash. GMO foods have been the first bounty of this technology, but the other applications are widespread, including energy, computing, organ replacements and much more. Fidelity boasts in part:

Synthetic Biologists collaborate around the world, using over 5,000 DNA sequences, called BioBricks™, now available online in an open-source database. Crowdsourcing the work means experiments that used to take years now take weeks, constantly redefining what’s possible.

Encouraging a race to create artificial life forms means less time in thinking out the potential consequences. The risks could well include endangering the survival of natural life (including humans), and would likely also prove costly for populations already vulnerable to market schemes.

Cross-species, xenotransplantation, human-animal hybrids and chimera creations all pose threats to DNA and organ receptors in ways scientists are only beginning to fully understand, while mixed genes open up new dangers of disease vulnerability between species previously not affected. This Brave New World of engineered creations, clearly, could pose instead a genetic armageddon. Alex Jones has repeatedly warned about the Trojan Horse bioweapon capabilities of much of this technology, as well as other widely used chemical compounds found throughout our food, water and environment.


Genetic Armageddon: Humanity’s Greatest Threat

Does this amount to “hacking biology” or what Alex Jones has often termed genetic vandalism? Thomas H. Murray, President of The Hastings Center gives a lecture discussing the ethical issues of creating new forms of life under the synthetic biology umbrella. This has been going on since the first recombinant DNA research began in the early 1970s, he indicates at some 13:40 minutes into the presentation. At least Murray considers the consequences, but in reality, the research field is moving forward with little concern for caution.

Apart from the risks to life itself, what finance capitol is funding is a new era of lucrative patent dominance in the realm of biology that will likely only embolden the existing oligopolies in Big Agra and Big Pharma, all while making the costs of staying alive greater to bear. “Intellectual property” issues are already plaguing traditional farmers in many parts of the world, as they clash with Monsanto’s seed monopoly. But this will also manifest in the future markets of human replacement organs grown in pigs, gene therapy, IVF and other assisted fertility, as well as many other areas. Already, claims of copyrighted human genes is occurring and impacting health care costs. Spider goats and human breast milk produced by cows are just some of the most widely publicized forms of this emerging technology front where natural sources are displaced by patented, costly and potentially dangerous GMO alternatives.

Meanwhile, the Transhumanist movement, today lead by iconic futurist Ray Kurzweil, is openly trying to re-engineer and replace the human species by merging individuals with technology– A.I., avatars, nano-tech, cloud-computing based memory banks and much more. Alex Jones’ Endgame breaks down much of this agenda.

The same science cultists who previously thought 96% of human DNA was “junk” are now playing god, assuming they can wield new life forms for human betterment. From it, the potential for financial & environmental harm, as well as predatory occupation from monopoly/oligopoly sectors is immense.

(NaturalNews) All the celebrities and sports figures who participate in the “Got Milk” ad campaigns are actually showing their faces smeared with pus cells, reveals a startling new Food Investigations video produced by the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (www.FoodInvestigations.com). Narrated by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, the video reveals little-known documentation from the dairy industry that proves the industry allows up to 750,000 pus cells per ml of pasteurized milk. This means that an 8-ounce of glass of conventional pasteurized milk may contain up to 180 million pus cells.

The short video is viewable at:
http://tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=C463AA940B9AEBA5D294F87FF0716579

Or on YouTube at:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKTfkFIiQUw

PUS — or “somatic cells” — are the result of infection in dairy cows. These infections are caused by unsanitary dairy operating conditions that lead to infected mammary glands of cows. Pus cells are the same type of cells found in a pimple or “zit juice.” In 2011, the dairy industry debated lowering the allowable level of pus cells (somatic cells) to just 450,000 per ml, but it chose to keep the levels at 750,000, allowing for more infections and more pus in the pasteurized milk sold at grocery stores everywhere.

The Consumer Wellness Center (www.ConsumerWellness.org) has calculated that a typical “milk moustache” may contain as many as 2 million pus cells, meaning that all the celebrities, movie stars and sports stars who allow their images to be used by the processed dairy industry are quite literally showing their faces smeared with pus from dairy cow infections.

A look at the dairy industry, without the marketing spin

This non-commercial video, which also features undercover footage showing the brutal treatment of cows in factory-like conditions, is intended to shed light on the unsanitary practices of the conventional (pasteurized) dairy industry while contrasting that with the substantially cleaner and more humane practices of certified organic RAW dairy producers.

The raw dairy industry is currently under assault in America as armed government agents in California, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania have conducted violent raids on raw milk producers, destroying their milk inventory and charging them with felony crimes for producing and distributing raw milk. (http://www.naturalnews.com/033220_Rawesome_Foods_armed_raids.html)

Dairy industry promotes fraudulent health claims

As this video shows, the conventional dairy industry is also making fraudulent health claims in its “got milk” ads, including falsely stating that drinking milk will give you “bones of steel.” A multitude of variations on this theme frequently appear in dairy industry ads.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, such claims automatically turn milk into an “unapproved drug,” meaning the FDA should now conduct armed raids of all conventional dairy producers, seize their inventory, and arrest their owners and operators to be charged with felony crimes for selling unapproved drugs. At least that’s how the FDA treats any other nutritional product that makes such strong claims of granting the human body near-magical health benefits. Try to sell an herbal product making the exact same claims and you’ll quickly find yourself threatened with arrest by the FTC or FDA. (http://www.naturalnews.com/029901_pomegranate_juice_health_claims.htm…)

In fact, pasteurized dead milk has never been approved by the FDA as a treatment for fragile bones, so there is no legal basis under current FDA regulations by which the dairy industry could make a claim that drinking milk will increase your bone strength to the tensile strength of steel. Yet, to no one’s surprise, both the FDA and the FTC take no action whatsoever against the dairy industry for making these fraudulent health claims and selling what the FDA typically calls “unapproved drugs.”

In truth, calcium alone does not build strong bones, and pasteurized milk is not even the best source of calcium. The pasteurization of milk destroys its digestive enzymes such as lactase, causing the milk to be far more allergenic and difficult to digest, which may explain why so many people suffer from lactose intolerance, digestive disorders, sinus congestion and acne when consuming pasteurized milk products.

(NaturalNews) In response to mounting public backlash from the older generation, the biotechnology industry has launched a new propaganda campaign aimed at convincing children that genetically-modified (GM) crops are not only safe, but also an improvement over natural agriculture. Monsanto, Dow, Bayer, and five other major biotechnology companies and associations have collectively released the Biotechnology Basics Activity Book, a colorful guide designed to reeducate children into the false dogma of biotechnology.

The 16-page guide — which includes word scrambles, fill-in-the-blank puzzles, and matching games — contains an introductory paragraph that claims biotechnology boosts crop yields, improves environmental conditions, and leads to more nutritious food. Throughout the book, children are told that biotechnology is changing the world for the better, which is a complete contradiction to all available independent science. And yet this guide is reportedly slated for inclusion in some school curriculum’s.

“This is an activity book for young people like you about biotechnology — a really neat topic,” says the first page of the book. “Why is it such a neat topic? Because biotechnology is helping to improve the health of the Earth and the people who call it home.”

You can view the entire activity book for yourself at:
http://www.whybiotech.com

The guide was produced by a group known as the Council for Biotechnology Information (CBI), a pro-GMO coalition of the world’s largest biotechnology companies and organizations. CBI routinely ignores independent science that shows GMOs and their growing chemicals to be dangerous, and continues to purvey the lie that GMO technologies are not only safe, but that they are superior to conventional and organic growing methods.

Independent science has proven GMOs are a human, environmental health hazardGM crop systems are inherently unsustainable in every way, as they require massive amounts of chemical inputs in order to grow. They have also been shown in numerous scientific studies to cause organ damage, digestive disorders, autoimmune diseases, reproductive problems, and various other conditions.

Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, the active ingredient of which is the weedkiller glyphosate, was recently exposed as a destroyer of testosterone and male fertility (http://www.naturalnews.com/035135_Roundup_herbicide_testosterone.html). Not only is Roundup responsible for spurring the massive “superweed” epidemic that now plagues millions of acres of American cropland, but the chemical concoction was also recently shown to trigger dozens of plant diseases (http://www.naturalnews.com/031138_Monsanto_Roundup.html).

Even when diluted by 99.8 percent, the Roundup formula is still toxic to human DNA, having been shown in a recent Archives of Toxicology study to have definitive cytotoxic and DNA-damaging properties (http://www.naturalnews.com/035050_Roundup_Monsanto_DNA.html). Environmentally, Roundup is highly persistent, and has been found in air, rainwater, and rivers all across the U.S., and particularly in the “bread belt” of the Midwest (http://www.naturalnews.com/033699_Roundup_pollution.html).

As far as GMOs themselves, there have been countless studies and reviews that have revealed serious problems with the way they are digested. A 2004 study published in Nature Biotechnology found that the genetic code of GM soy can actually alter the genetic code of gut microbiota when consumed, which can cause long-term digestive problems (http://www.naturalnews.com/028635_GMOs_bacteria.html).

None of these facts are published in the Biotechnology Basics Activity Book, of course, which makes quite the opposite claims without even a shred of proof to back them. But since young children are the book’s target audience, the biotechnology liars behind its publishing apparently hope that colorful pictures and fun word games will be enough to sway the opinion of the next generation.

(NaturalNews) The Obama Administration has given its blessing to PepsiCo to continue utilizing the services of a company that produces flavor chemicals for the beverage giant using aborted human fetal tissue. LifeSiteNews.com reports that the Obama Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) has decided that PepsiCo’s arrangement with San Diego, Cal.-based Senomyx, which produces flavor enhancing chemicals for Pepsi using human embryonic kidney tissue, simply constitutes “ordinary business operations.”

The issue began in 2011 when the non-profit group Children of God for Life (CGL) first broke the news about Pepsi’s alliance with Senomyx, which led to massive outcry and a worldwide boycott of Pepsi products. At that time, it was revealed that Pepsi had many other options at its disposal to produce flavor chemicals, which is what its competitors do, but had instead chosen to continue using aborted fetal cells — or as Senomyx deceptively puts it, “isolated human taste receptors” (http://www.naturalnews.com).

A few months later, Pepsi’ shareholders filed a resolution petitioning the company to “adopt a corporate policy that recognizes human rights and employs ethical standards which do not involve using the remains of aborted human beings in both private and collaborative research and development agreements.” But the Obama Administration shut down this 36-page proposal, deciding instead that Pepsi’s used of aborted babies to flavor its beverage products is just business as usual, and not a significant concern.

“We’re not talking about what kind of pencils PepsiCo wants to use — we are talking about exploiting the remains of an aborted child for profit,” said Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director of CGL, concerning the SEC decision. “Using human embryonic kidney (HEK-293) to produce flavor enhancers for their beverages is a far cry from routine operations!”

To be clear, the aborted fetal tissue used to make Pepsi’s flavor chemicals does not end up in the final product sold to customers, according to reports — it is used, instead, to evaluate how actual human taste receptors respond to these chemical flavorings. But the fact that Pepsi uses them at all when viable, non-human alternatives are available illustrates the company’s blatant disregard for ethical and moral concerns in the matter.

Back in January, Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey proposed legislation to ban the production of aborted fetal cell-derived flavor chemicals in his home state. If passed, S.B. 1418 would also reportedly ban the sale of any products that contain flavor chemicals derived from human fetal tissue, which includes Pepsi products as well as products produced by Kraft and Nestle (http://www.naturalnews.com).

Incensed by the idea that Iowans might soon be able to make their own food choices when it comes to fresh dairy products, Daniel H. Gervich, M.D., a board-certified infectious diseases and critical care medicine doctor from Des Moines, Iowa, recently declared that feeding raw milk to babies is “child endangerment.”


This outlandish claim, which was part of a recent rant he made against raw dairy published in the Des Moines Register, infers that mothers who feed their babies raw milk are abusing their children. And should anything negative happen to these children during the time in which they are drinking raw milk, their parents should apparently be held criminally responsible in Dr. Gervich’s view.

The editorial was published in response to the proposition of House Study Bill 585, a bill that would undo the State of Iowa’s highly-restrictive laws against any sale or transfer of raw milk. If passed, H.S.B. 585 would allow farmers to sell raw milk and raw dairy products directly to customers from the farm, or have it delivered, without restrictions, to customers’ homes (http://coolice.legis.state.ia.us).

Demand for raw dairy all across the country is soaring as individuals learn about the health benefits of raw milk, including how lactose intolerance is not an issue when drinking raw milk. But in many states, including in Iowa, sales of raw milk are strictly prohibited, which is why legislation like H.S.B. 585 is being introduced everywhere.

But attempts to re-legalize access to raw milk continue to be met by outmoded superstition, bad science, and blatant misinformation campaigns designed to protect the filthy dairy industry from the threat of a burgeoning raw dairy market. After all, small-scale farmers can earn a much better living selling clean, pastured raw milk to their customers independently rather than be forced to process their milk into the standardized dairy pool, where they earn a mere fraction of the profits.

“Dr. Gervich’s overused soundbite simply serves as a perfect example of the establishment attempting to wreak fear in the hearts of all parents that their children might be removed from their home if they do not agree with the prevailing medical or nutritional model consistent with medical, industry, government, (and) stakeholder made up standards,” wrote Eileen Dannemann, director of theNational Coalition of Organized Women, in response to Dr. Gervich’s editorial.

“Does the Doctor, unschooled in nutrition, plan on calling Child Protective Services for ‘child endangerment’ on those mothers who seek unadulterated, un-homogenized, un-pasteurized farm fresh milk from a sister species as a substantially equivalent substitute?”

(NaturalNews) NaturalNews exclusive report, please credit with link. NaturalNews can now report that 65-year-old senior citizen,  James Stewart a raw milk farmer with no criminal history, was nearly tortured to death in the LA County jail this past week. He survived a “week of torturous Hell” at the hands of LA County jail keepers who subjected him to starvation, sleep deprivation, hypothermia, loss of blood circulation to extremities, verbal intimidation, involuntary medical testing and even subjected him to over 30 hours of raw biological sewage filth containing dangerous pathogens.

This is from a county that has targeted and terrorized James Stewart for the supposed crime of selling fresh milk containing “dangerous pathogens.” That’s right – the only “crime” James has ever committed is being the milk man and distributing milk that is openly and honestly kept fresh and raw instead of pasteurized. So as part of his punishment of advocating raw cow’s milk, he was tortured with raw human sewage at the LA County jail.

This true story of jaw-dropping dehumanization and torture — conducted in total violation of state law as well as the Geneva Convention for prisoners of war — is told in an exclusive audio interview recorded today between Mike Adams and James Stewart.

That audio recording, which has been released by Adams into the public domain for the purpose of widespread copying and sharing, is available for download at the following links:

Adams openly encourages members of the public to post these files on YouTube, Vimeo, bittorrent sites and anywhere else where they may reach the public.

“I thought I was gonna die in there…”

In this exclusive interview, you can hear James Stewart describe, in his own words, the shocking details of prisoner abuse right here in America. Among the highlights from his interview with Mike Adams:

• How James was subjected to severe food deprivation.

• How he was interrogated by deputies and accused of being a “sovereign,” then branded with a red arm band (Nazi-style) to falsely indicate that he was a danger to the general population.

• How James was shackled in long chains wrapped around his waist multiple times, then had his hands cuffed behind his back which was bound to the heavy waist chain to restrict his movement. His handcuffs were so tight he thought his wrists would break.

• James was then handcuffed to a cold bench, restricting his movement to just six inches, then left on the bench for 4-5 hours.

• James was then forcibly subjected to various medical tests, including forced chest X-rays even while he was handcuffed.

• He was placed in a cold cell wearing only a T-shirt and pants, where he soon began to suffer from hypothermia and found himself violently shivering just to stay alive.

• How he was made to suffer through total sleep deprivation all night long as other prisoners were screaming and banging on the walls.

• His cell was then flooded with raw human sewage, which flowed into his jail cell 2-3 inches deep, covering his shoes and shirt. LA County jail guards then ordered James to clean up all the raw sewage in his cell by handing him a small hand-held squeegee and demanding that he squeegee out all the raw sewage himself (which he reluctantly did).

• He was then forced to stay in the putrid raw sewage cell for over 30 hours, fighting off nausea and living in bacteriological filth that threatened his health.

• All along, the LA County prison guards gloated over their treatment of prisoners while laughing and joking about their power to subject prisoners to such abuse. This behavior openly mimics that of Gitmo guards who took pictures gloating over their torture and murder of prisoners of war.

• During this entire process, James was not allowed a single phone call nor any visit from an attorney. His right to speak to an attorney was repeatedly denied.

• At no point was James notified of what he was being charged with. He was never presented with an arrest warrant nor were any charges explained to him.

• James was mysteriously “lost” in the system and LA County officials claimed they did not know where he was. This was apparently a deliberate attempt to subject an individual to drawn-out torture without legal representation and make sure no one could locate them to check on their health or arrest status.

“Worse than torture… They’re actually torturing you mentally and physically to break you down…”

These are the actual words of James Stewart that you will hear in this interview:

• “I thought I was gonna die in there.”

• “It was worse than torture. They’re actually torturing you mentally and physically to break you down.”

• “I wrote the ‘torture’ on a piece of toilet paper to try to tell everybody what I had gone through, because I was worried they were going to mentally break me and put me in a psych ward.”

• “What I experienced in downtown LA was brutality.”

• “It’s trauma. And they create this thing where you’re not even sure what’s coming next. What has this country come to? I don’t sleep well at night right now, and I don’t think anyone would if they had been what I’ve been through.”

• “I’m shocked that this is America. Because it seems like you’re in some third world country, in a gulag, like in the movie Midnight Express, where you’re absolutely just tortured. That was the experience I had. Your mind goes, how can this be? This is America?”

NaturalNews calls on Amnesty International, ACLU to intervene

What we are witnessing here is a gross violation of civil rights and human rights, not to mention fundamental due process. The treatment unleashed upon James was not merely against the law in California, it was also a violation of federal law and a violation of the Geneva Convention and its ban on torturing prisoners of war.

“What happened to Stewart is horrendous,” health freedom attorney Jonathan Emord told NaturalNews. He’s the author of the new book “Restore the Republic” which lays out a plan to overthrow tyranny and restore a government that works on behalf of the people instead of declaring the People to be the enemy.

The bail amount set for James ($1 million) and the torture to which he was subjected clearly indicate that James Stewart is a political prisoner of the State of California, which has decided to spend millions of dollars in taxpayer money to target and incarcerate a senior citizen farmer. (By comparison, bail for alleged child rapist and sex pimp Jerry Sandusky, former Penn State sports coach, was only set at $100,000 and was unsecured!)

NaturalNews calls upon Amnesty International and the American Civil Liberties Union to intervene in this extraordinary violation of basic human rights. For the record, James Stewart has no criminal record and is a permaculture farmer and fresh food advocate. His “crime” consists entirely of arranging for the distribution of raw milk to customers who actually line up to access this nourishing food (people love it!).

NaturalNews has no financial ties to James Stewart nor Rawesome Foods and has been the leading source of free press information covering this story. The mainstream media so far refuses to cover this story, most likely out of financial loyalty to the conventional (processed) dairy industry which stands to lose tens of millions of dollars if raw milk is allowed to be openly and legally sold.

Assistance efforts for James Stewart and Sharon Palmer, the other person arrested in this case, can be emailed to:

More details to be revealed on national radio Sunday

Mike Adams will be discussing this issue on live national radio, Sunday at 1pm Eastern time, 10am Pacific, on the Robert Scott Bell Show.

Listen in at: www.GCNlive.com

In addition, NaturalNews has forwarded details to producers of the Alex Jones Show with the hope that Alex Jones will want to cover this for his own audience (www.InfoWars.com).

Information is also being forwarded to the Ron Paul campaign, as Ron Paul has openly spoken out against the absurdity of laws targeting raw milk producers. As Paul is extremely busy running for President, however, he is unlikely to be able to comment on this particular issue.

Tips have been forwarded to Matt Drudge for his consideration of the issue.
