It's Not Rocket Science
- It's Not Rocket Science
An article in today's (December 1, 2004) Omaha News
Journal (and many other American newspapers) blames
the latest evidence of national milk contamination
on rocket fuel.

Federal agencies incorrectly place blame on something
other than the real cause. They know the truth, and
in a few moments, you'll know it too.
When homeland security is concerned, the Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI) should be sharing
critical spy data with the Central Intelligence
Agency (CIA). Total exchange of information should
be a two way street. That concept is easy enough to
understand, and is not rocket science.
When homeland health is concerned, the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA), the United States Department of
Agriculture (USDA), and the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) should also routinely exchange information.
This concept also is not rocket science. Sadly, rarely
if ever does one health agency consult another, and
the health of American consumers is compromised as
Government agencies (EPA, FDA, USDA) have independently
found unsafe levels of perchlorate in America's drinking
water. In order to deceive American consumers, these
agencies of health refer to perchlorate as "rocket fuel."
The perchlorate which contaminates our food and drink is
not rocket fuel, and the truth to this fraud is truly
not rocket science.
The EPA recently proposed a safe "Reference Dose" for
perchlorate in drinking water as one part per billion.
At the same time, the FDA has been testing America's milk
samples, and determined that unsafe amounts of perchlorate
were present in virtually all of the samples tested.
If health agencies shared information, the dairy industry
would cease to exist. By law, they would have to be closed
down for violating EPA's safe standards. Drinking milk is
clearly harmful to one's health for thousands of reasons.
Add perchlorate to the growing mound of anti-dairy evidence.
If you live in the state of Maryland, you will not
be pleased to learn that whole organic milk produced
and sold in your state was tested and contained over
11 times the safe level of perchlorate. Kansas milk
tested at over 10 parts per billion, while Georgia
milk tested at more than 9 parts per billion. Texas,
Pennsylvania, and Washington milk all were found to
contain in excess of 7 parts per billion.
Fertilizer contains perchlorate. Fertilizer is used to
treat crops. Fertilizer is used to grow feed for cattle.
Perchlorate is used to manufacture rocket fuel, but
that is not what pollutes America's streams. Dangerous
fertilizers are applied to fields. Cows eat the feed and
these fertilizers become concentrated in their bodies.
Cows urinate and defecate and their perchlorate-rich wastes
enter our streams and pollute our drinking water. Cows
drink the same drinking water.
This is America. Rockets once glared red, and bombs
burst into the air, and the environment suffered the
ill effects of perchlorate. The practice of exploding
bombs over Baltimore harbor rarely happens these days.
So, when it comes to rocket fuel in food, don't believe
government lies. They offer to you a degree in rocket
science, but their advice is one big dud.
