HAVING TROUBLE WITH DISEASES IN YOUR PIGS?

If you're having all sorts of trouble with diseases showing up in your farm animals, pigs for example, you might want to consult with a farmer in Denmark who has a novel solution: quit feeding them GMO crops and foods:

Danish Farmer Reverses Illnesses in pigs by reverting to a GM-free diet

Let's read that list of problems being caused by the "extensively tested and entirely safe" GMOs once more time:

"Published in the farming magazine Effektivt Landbrug on 13 April 2012 [1], the farmer Ib Borup Perderson describes how his pigs suffered from symptoms including chronic diarrhoea, birth defects, reproductive problems, reduced appetite, bloating, stomach ulcers, weaker and smaller piglets, and reduced litter sizes. This was not just a problem for the animals themselves but also the profitability of the farm, with fewer healthy animals, mounting costs of medicines and added labour costs.

"After researching the health hazards of GM foods and associated herbicides, Pederson decided to stop feeding his 450 sows with GM soybean, replacing them with fishmeal and non-GM soybean instead. He began to notice health benefits after two days of a GM-free diet. The farmer’s account has since been published in an English dossier compiled by scientist Brian John of GM-free Cymru (Wales), with collaboration from Pederson, published online by GM Watch [2]." 

It gets worse:

 "Residents of heavy agrochemical-use zones in Argentina have seen startling increases in birth defects, adult and human cancer rates as well as other illnesses (see [6] Argentina’s Roundup Human Tragedy, SiS 48, [7] Pesticide Illnesses and GM Soybeans, SiS 53). Argentinian tobacco farmers have recently filed a lawsuit against Monsanto for birth defects suffered by their children following claims by the corporation that the chemical was safe to use [8]"

There's an interesting linkage in this article, for it appears the glyphosphates cause decline in mineral absoprtion in animals consuming GMOs with them, leading to subsequent birth defects:

"Professor Emeritus Don Huber of Perdue (sic) University, a senior scientist of USDA (US Department of Agriculture) has been studying crop health for over 20 years, and warned how reduced mineral content of glyphosate-tolerant crops lead to nutritional deficiencies in livestock that in turn cause reproductive problems (see [10] USDA Scientist Reveals All, SiS 53). Reduced mineral content in crops results from glyphosate’s metal chelating properties, rendering essential minerals unavailable. Nutrient deficiency effects are independent of direct glyphosate toxicity that causes endocrine disruption, birth defects and cancers among other illnesses.  The identification of a novel pathogen in glyphosate-treated crops, reproductive organs of livestock as well as aborted foetal tissue may also be a contributing factor (see [11]Emergency! Pathogen New to Science Found in Roundup Ready GM Crops?,SiS50)."

The real news however, is that at least in Denmark the government is still responsive to such stories, for as the article indicates, new studies are going forward to test the effects of GMOs on farm livestock. One can imagine the response, had Mr. Pederson lived in America: he would have been lampooned, harassed, and excoriated, if he was paid attention to at all. More likely, with bought and paid for "science" and "government agencies" staffed by a revolving door between "agribusiness" and government, he simply would have been ignored.

See you on the flip side.

  1. The normal body temperature for pigs ranges from 101 F to 104 F (38.3 – 40 degrees Celcius).

    Melting point backfat: 30–40 °C (86–104 °F)
    Leaf fat: 43–48 °C (109–118 °F)
    Mixed pork fat: 36–45 °C (97–113 °F)

    A cow’s body temperature is 101.5 degrees Fahrenheit (38.6°C).

    Suet (Beef or Mutton Fat) has a melting point of between 45°C and 50°C (113°F and 122°F)

    The melting point of coconut oil is generally quoted as being 76 degrees F (24 C)

    The melting point for olive oil is 21 F (-6 C).

    Butter melting point 32–35 °C (90–95 F)

    Cocoa butter is solid at room temperature and melts at 90°F – 93°F.

    The healthiest oils or fats, are those with melting points preferably well below that of normal human body temperature.

    Fats with melting temperatures higher than that of the human body tend to be unhealthy, whereas oils with a lower melting point tend to be healthy. This makes coconut & olive oils ideal for human health. The higher the melting point, the more sluggish will be the fats or oils in the body. The lower the viscosity the more free flowing & lubricating oils will be to the body. In any case, the higher body temperatures of cows & pigs result in higher melting points than the melting points of either fruit or nut oils, & why these oils are preferable to animal fats in a prevention of cardiovascular congestion & disease.

    1. Elm,

      I don’t know if you have ever studied Ayurvedic medicine but your thoughts are right in line with Ayurveda. Add to that your spiritual/philosophical outlook (from what I’ve read) and your vigilant defense of raw milk, and I would have to surmise you were a Vedic Rishi in a past life.

      1. Interesting.

        There happens to be a wonderful film about Ayurvedic medicine posted here…

        Ayurveda – Art of Being 1-7 – A Beautiful Film
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=W-H6xEPsNvw&NR=1

        “Hope is nature’s way of enabling us to survive so that we can discover nature itself.”

        What were previously upheld as vocations, are today packaged & promoted as careers. Ayurvedic medicine seems a vocation from which we can all learn.

    2. “oils with a lower melting point tend to be healthy. This makes coconut & olive oils ideal for human health”- exactly!

      start with the Weston (Wesson?) A. Price Foundation; Price was a liscenced allopathic doctor who smelled “a fly in the oink-ment, ” did his own research (with many others) and found out not everything he learned in Medical School was kosher-

      one of the greatest postings of this website was the report entitled “Know Your Fats”; quick summary: coconut oil is absolutely the best frying oil we can use; because of it’s thick viscosity it’s fat content cannot be absorbed by the thin pores in, like, potatoes;

      but (it get’s better)- according to Price’s research we’re SUPPOSED to have high cholesterol levels (both positive and negative- the difference is an invention of the pharma industry) because the heart muscle draws on higher cholesterol levels especially later in life in order to repair itself-

      my own GP here in Germany told me our cholesterol levels are genetically pre-determined (don’t mess with nature) and refuses to prescribe Statin drugs because the side effects far out-weigh the befefits (WHAT benefits?- there are none- only side effects from meds conning people into buying even more meds: profit!)-

      well, as for swine, I guess there’s a reason why we call the most despicable people on this planet “pigs”-

  2. You want to talk about Solyent Green? Who knows what kind of sick joke the Atlanteans were cooking up when they engineered pigs. Probably something to be fed to the colonists. No wonder our most long running yahwehist religion and its ugly, cube worshipping stepchild have pork restrictions. Long ago they knew where pork originated from. If you wanted to keep people trapped in their lower three chakras where they can not escape thoughts of sex and violence, pork would be the food of choice. Sadly, these pathetic, soulful, semi-human creatures can not escape their lowest chakra which may explain why they eat their own excrement (much like the many pig men and women of Hollywood with their excrement obsession).

    And then there is the ease in which demons can be cast into pigs by conjurers and exorcists. More food for thought.

    1. Good points. Eating pork is an impediment – a contaminant to the human soul akin to a short circuit. This is one thing the Muslims have right.

  3. I could not help thinking that Monsanto’s acquiring the patent for terminator seeds for implementation of a scheme whereby farmers would be forced to go back to Monsanto every year to buy their seed… sounded suspiciously familiar. Years ago a thug was dispatched to club the knee of Nancy Kerrigan with the planned
    outcome being a thriving business providing security for Olympic figure skaters. Jeff Gillooly didn’t just change his name to “Jeff Stone” and disappear into the
    American landscape… his genius was recognized by the corporate elite and he is now the brain-trust behind Hugh Grant.

    1. quote: “he is now the brain-trust behind Hugh Grant.”

      Hi Gray, Interesting post. Where can I get more info about his connection with Gillooly aka Jeff Stone? Thanks …

      Terminator seeds turning farmers into indentured slaves reminds me of that song ‘16 Tons’ … “I owe my soul to the company store” … They are called ‘seeds of suicide’ in India where cotton farmers are committing suicide over debts due to Mon[ster]santo’s false promises and failed technology.

  4. THE PROBLEM. I saw a doc on TV about horrible conditions harvesting the cocoa plant/nut. So later I feels like a chocolate but Hershee is on a monsterstanto boycott list. So I”m In the market see a $3.00 organic(on sale) chocolate bar with the organic & fair trade labels and the picture of the monkey in the rain forest. Later I’m munchin this delish treat & in small print I sees the bar is made in Poland by Kraaft international which is also on the monstersanto boycott list. Point being how can you avoid feeding these companies.

  5. Our mindless anti life Elites idea of paradise biology replace by immortal machines dedicated to ever growing greed. Mechanical Pod creatures stuck in the never changing now zombie world neither dead or alive if they ever knew what living really was.

  6. it’s a known fact that pork meat, because of its fat content, retains much more of what the pigs are fed than beef, poultry-

    years ago (1980’s) I met/briefly interacted with a German (biologist) who flatly refused to eat pork; he said even back then he was aware of what swine were being fed (i didn’t blink an eye back then- different today)- back then I thought he was over-reacting, a “stoopid” conspiracy theorist in today’s jargon- not any more- so if swine way back then (or any other consumable animal) were already being manipulated, how many other animal products have been infiltrated with hormones/vaccines, etc.?- we all know the answer- but pork continues to be the most purchased meat (the cheapest) here in Germany- and when I’m at the local butcher in my village the people clamouring for pork sausages (more varities than even imaginable in the US), etc. are the fattest- my point: it’s not the fat content that makes people obese but the additives carried by the fat content-

    I dunno Dr. Farrell and readers- I tend to think all this GMO manipulation has been around much longer than we’ve been told-

    stay well all- regards-

    1. Larry, always enjoy your comments. Edgar Cayce had said, many years ago, to limit pork in your diet.” It’s the only animal that will eat it’s own excreations. ” He died like in 1945 ! I agree , that this manipulation has been around much longer than we have been told.
      Peace, Vinny

      1. hey, Vinny, many thanks for your response- very appreciated-

        “Edgar Cayce had said, many years ago, to limit pork in your diet.” It’s the only animal that will eat it’s own excreations”- I was unaware of this statement so thanks for the heads-up on this one-

        but the baffling thing is pigs are intelligent animals (or so we’ve been told)- so why would pigs instinctively eat their own excreations?- could it be that like human urine (for us) their excretions are beneficial to their bodies?- most probably but their fat content was compromised by an “agenda”-

        I know the following concept will be “too icky” for most to want to grasp but one’s own urine has incredible healing properties- when I first learned of this in the 90’s I thought it was “looney” but I actually followed this (had to get over my “cheap self”) and found that applying my own urine to minor skin problems made the problems disappear almost immediately- it was painless and didn’t “smell”-

        I know this sounds crazy due to our present cud-fed understanding of the world (tell me about it) but it worked-

        enough from me for now- please stay well- regards-

        Larry

      2. Pigs will also eat their young as well as many other “things.” And as reported in Canada at the Pickton Pig Farm in British Columbia, pigs were being used to dispose of “evidence,” i.e., human bodies, in this case prostitutes “extracted” from Downtown Vancouver. There’s was also a movie made about a British gang whose members disposed of their victims (evidence) at a pig farm. They may have some rudimentary animal intelligence, but pigs are ugly mean creatures. So, if there’s any truth to you are or become what you eat, best to stay away from pork & pigs. As an aside, the only distinction cannibaals made between pigs, which they valued more or less equal to humans, was that whereas pigs were “short,” humans were “long.” And a wild boar is another matter. It’ll tear a man’s leg off.
