"If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy
all respect for the law."

Nearly eight years ago, Notmilk was the first to report
that a pesticide applied to the backs of dairy cows
was responsible for a tragic disorder that was killing
American bees and destroying beehive colonies.
If you are a bee or a bunny or a boy, you do not want to
commit slow suicide by ingestion after drinking body fluids
from cows, or eating their tainted flesh. If you are a
gnat or a gannet or a girl, you do not want to suffer the
consequences from dining on daily doses of deadly pesticides.
On November 1, 2013, a publication in a Japanese medical
journal (Legal Medicine) performed by University of Okinawa
School of Medicine researchers confirmed imidacloprid has
been detected in the body fluids of insects, referring to
their deaths as "suicide by ingestion."
On Sunday, December 1, 2013, the European Union caught up with
Notmilk by banning banned the use of that same Bayer Aspirin
company poison, imidacloprid, correctly reasoning that it was
also destroying European bee populations. One small step for
Notmilk. One giant leap for Bee-kind! Netter late than never!
FDA and USDA have a book (referred to as The Green Book)
which lists legal pesticide limits and permissible levels
for human food and animal feed. Those numbers differ greatly.
Rachel Carson's SILENT SPRING resulted in the
banning of a horribly toxic pesticide, D.D.T.
Ironically, Carson died a few months after
publishing the best selling book that changed
America. Or did it? Her breasts became toxic
dump sites for chemicals approved by government
agencies, and her breast cancer overwhelmed
healthy cells, resulting in her death.
The United States Department of Environmental
Protection (EPA) has established so-called
safe levels for pesticides in foods, but their
tolerance levels make absolutely no sense.
EPA's math is one level below dyslexic,
hovering between unethical and criminal.
If humans and animals eat the same plants,
and humans then eat the flesh of these same
animals, or drink their milk, the pesticides
become concentrated in the bodies and body
fluids of those food-animals. Humans sit
atop the food chain.
Unfortunately, government standards for farm animals
allow greater amounts of pesticides in animal feed.
Let me cite you one example.
If soy crops are sprayed with one of the most
toxic substances used in agriculture, malathion,
EPA will allow no more than 8 parts per million
on those soybeans.
Soybeans are harvested, roasted and served to
dairy cows and beef cattle. If soy forage is used
for animal feed, the permitted level of malathion
is nearly seventeen times greater (135 parts per
Humans may eat a few ounces per day of malathion-treated
soy products. Dairy cows might eat ten pounds per day or
more of that same product with higher permissible residues.
Day after day. Week after week. Thousands of doses.
The actual human dose of malathion for milk drinkers
or meat eaters may very well be thousands of times
greater than the maximum standard for human tolerance
as set by EPA.
Mal means bad, and malathion (Dimethoxy Phosphino
Thioyl Thio Butanedioic Acid Diethyl Ester) is the
baddest of pesticides. Exposure to malathion can
result in a vast array of human conditions, including
birth defects, cancer, chromosomal, brain, and kidney
damage, leukemia, and often-times death.
Read the horror stories associated with malathion:
Many hundreds of different pesticides are used on
America's farms. In most cases, the allowable
levels of pesticides in feed for farm animals is
significantly higher than it is for human food.
Other pesticide ranges include acetochlor (7 times
higher for animal feed), alachlor (3.5 times greater),
bentazon (60 times greater), carbaryl (20 times greater),
chloroneb (20 times greater), diflubensuron (10 times
greater), diphenamid (5 times greater), fenvalerate (20
times greater), methomyl (50 times greater), methyl
parathion (10 times greter), metolachlor (40 times greater),
and norflurazon (10 times greater). Many more pesticides
are used. You get the idea.
Eat soy or any fruit and vegetable, and you get one
dose. Eat organic soy, or organic fruits and
vegetables, and you receive zero doses of pesticides.
Eat animals who are permitted many more times
the levels of pesticides that are permitted for humans,
and who eat many hundreds or thousands of doses,
and you introduce poisons into your own flesh.
Is there any living creature higher on the
food chain than human adults who eat poisoned
flesh and dairy products?
Sadly, the answer is yes. The highest creature
on the food chain is the growing fetus whose
mother is exposed to these concentrated toxins.
After birth, her mother delivers these concentrated
pesticides to the child through breast milk.
Shouldn't pesticide standards for human feed
and animal feed be identical, particularly when
some clueless humans continue to consume animals
eating toxic feed?
