Brexit: Cabinet to consider ramping up no-deal plans. BBC. 0ne hour ago.
The effect will be a proper Brexit from the EU, but as there is already a trade deal with the USA citing in the wings, this will have the effect of placing us into control by the Washington branch of world government, and not the Brussels one, the place they’ve tried to lodge us since WW2.
If WW3 comes along with Russia being painted into the bad guy corner, we will presumably be regarded as a part of the USA, without an independent voice. In fact very similar to WW2. I think I’d prefer that to being commanded from Berlin where British soldiers would be sacrificed in greater numbers to save Germany from Russian invasion. Just a thought.
I’ve finished writing my autobiography now, and it’s under publisher control while proof reading is completed. Hopefully it will hit the electronic book stands early in the New Year. It’s been a full on job for three months, and it’s taken my eye of the blog to some extent. I can now refocus back on here.
We’ve had a massive assault of spam comments with a new plug-in seems to be dealing with. Numbers of page reads has declined which is not surprising as I’ve been absent pretty much for three months. Hopefully my return will bring back the numbers we had not long ago. Comments are almost zero these days which is all to do with interference. Did we expect the Satanists to be helping us discover the truths of our world? Not really.
Get ready for a fall in food safety standards once we join the US trade deal.
There’s overwhelming evidence showing that antibiotic use in livestock is driving the rise in antibiotic resistance, and many poultry producers — including Tyson Foods,1 Perdue2 and Pilgrim’s Pride — have taken steps to curb antibiotic use in their live poultry production.
In recent years, a number of grocery and restaurant chains have also vowed to stop buying and selling chicken raised with antibiotics. Examples include Whole Foods Market, Chick-fil-A, Chipotle, Panera Bread and even McDonald’s.
Six of the largest school districts in the U.S. (New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Miami-Dade County and Orlando County) have also switched to antibiotic-free chicken in their cafeterias.
In contrast, Sanderson Farms,3 the third-largest poultry producer in the U.S., has stood firm against the tide of calls to reduce antibiotic use, vowing to continue using the drugs in their chickens, going so far as to use it as a selling point,4,5 while simultaneously advertising their chicken as “100% Natural.”
A lawsuit filed against the company last year, charging Sanderson Farms with false advertising, is now moving forward. At the same time, Sanderson has announced it will discontinue using antibiotics deemed important for human health for disease prevention purposes in their production — a radical change in stance that shows public pressure is paying off.
For Years, Sanderson Farms Has Refused to Yield to Call for Antibiotic-Free Chicken
Remarkably, Sanderson Farms’ CEO Joe Sanderson Jr. has actually gone on record saying antibiotics don’t cause antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and that the shift away from antibiotics is nothing more than a marketing ploy to justify higher prices.6
Lampkin Butts, president and chief operating officer of Sanderson Farms, has also stated “There is not any credible science that leads us to believe we’re causing antibiotic resistance in humans.”7 In a 2016 press release, the company said:8
“While Sanderson Farms recognizes that antibiotic resistance is an issue that must be taken seriously, many industry experts agree the issue is related to the overuse and over-prescription of antibiotics in humans, and more closely linked to medical institutions such as hospitals and nursing homes, rather than agricultural processes that have been in place for decades.”
All of this despite ample amounts of research demonstrating the very real dangers of agricultural antibiotic use. Sanderson has also attempted to confuse people by pointing out that no commercially sold chicken — whether treated with antibiotics or not — will contain antibiotics by the time you buy it since the antibiotics must be stopped in time before slaughter to ensure the drugs are no longer in the animals’ system.
However, this doesn’t address the actual concerns about antibiotic use in chickens, because even if the antibiotics are no longer present in the meat, the resistant bacteria are present and they are the primary problem.
When animals are given antibiotics, it promotes drug resistance in the microbes found in and on the animal, and those drug-resistant bacteria can then be spread to those who handle or eat the tainted meat. This is true whether the chicken contains traces of antibiotics or not. So, while eating trace amounts of antibiotics is a concern,9 it’s not the most significant one.
TAP – also much higher use of farm sprays in the US – glyphosate in foods. The corporations get permissions as they please. Britain will be exposed to much more aggressive environmental attack once inside as US trade deal. 5G, fracking, nuclear waste dumping and so on. Depopulation is certainly one of the aims. My neighbour called me yesterday saying he was considering installing a 5G tower on his land. I told him only if he wants more birth deformities and suicides in the village. I would need to plant belts of forestry around the Tower if he went ahead and he’d lose many acres of farmland, which he rents from me. He’s the cousin of the fracking farmer, who saw the light in time in Dudleston, Shropshire. Hopefully the threat of the 5G Tower is already over, or we’ll need to ramp up a campaign of opposition pretty smartish. Get the troops ready in case.
