Stewardship: How it affects disease

I was at a great seminar this past Thursday and Friday learning about how to breed and/or create outstanding, great tasting, healthy, nutritious cows. We touched on other animals but 99 percent of the seminar was on cows.

Stewardship has many definitions as you can learn on Wikipedia. Historically, stewardship was the responsibility given to household servants to bring food and drinks to a castle dining hall. The term was then expanded to indicate a household employee’s responsibility for managing household or domestic affairs.

The following list is from Wikipedia and I will not discuss all of these forms of stewardship as you can look them up on Wikipedia. I do want to touch on Health Stewardship and Religious Stewardship because I think they are related and not able to be separated.

Contents

We have reached a point in our nation’s history when there are countless things wrong and we, the people, have got to take the responsibility of correcting the wrongs; our government is corrupt and the elected officials will not change anything for the better. Things just keep getting worse.

Food is the most critical because it is solely responsible for our health. Heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, degenerative diseases like MS, ALS, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Autism, AD, ADHD and  Crohn’s disease (the list goes on and on) are all caused by poor quality foods and toxic chemicals.  What we need are corporations and people that have integrity to provide healthy food. At this point, most of these people could care less if you or I live or die.

What we need are local people selling local healthy food. The idea that large multinational “food” manufacturers are the only ones that can make safe food is ridiculous. You can’t trust large corporations but you can trust yourself (growing your own food in a garden) and you can get to know people by looking them in their eyes and asking questions.

So where does the stewardship come into play?

Maybe we can also use the word “integrity” in addition to stewardship.

In the seminar I attended, the speaker, Gerald Fry, talked about how we treat the cows. The present system for corporate beef from feed lots takes the baby away from the mother at 205 days before the rumen – stomach – is completely formed for digestion. Cows are supposed to convert grass into a healthy food product for our good health, but if they don’t develop properly, they have to eat grain which is totally unhealthy for them and it destroys the beneficial Omega III fatty acids and the CLA’s that are life sustaining to people.

It seems to me that we ought to do the right thing for cows and people.

My wife and I raise and sell grass-fed, non-chemical healthy beef. If I promise grass-fed, non-chemical beef, then I should deliver on my promise. If I feed grain or chemicals (for parasites) or antibiotics, then I have no integrity and my stewardship to the cow and my customer is gone.

In the course of the seminar, four of us (including the speaker Gerald Fry) told the others that we use no chemicals including vaccines that are toxic chemicals. The theory and in practice, if an animal or person is healthy and they eat healthy to have a strong immune system, they do not need vaccines for diseases and chemicals for parasites. To me and to the others, this is stewardship. It is doing the right thing for everyone – the cow and the people.

Stewardship is also a Biblical thing.

Most of the people at the seminar are very strong Christians and they certainly believe in the Bible. Unfortunately, some people have a hard time separating fuzzy science by food manufacturers, feed lots, Land Grant Universities (that are bought and paid for by drug and chemical corporations) and our government.

On the second day of the seminar, two business partners, one a doctor and the other a feed store owner and ranch manager, decided to jump into the fray with a quick comment that good stewardship on cows involves vaccines and chemical wormers. Not one to be shy, I jumped into the fray with a comment about vaccines not being safe for people or animals.

Whether a person believes vaccines are beneficial or not is not the point. Vaccines have never been proven to work by double-blind placebo controlled studies, but when it comes to people and cows, the concern with vaccines is not if they work. The concern is all the toxic chemicals the drug manufacturers use in the manufacture of vaccines. They use heavy metals like mercury, aluminum and chemicals like aspartame, the artificial sweetener and now they have been caught inserting mycoplasmas, a bacterium without a cell wall that the government has been using in biological warfare agents.

The gentleman, in his comment, brought the Bible into the fray implying that if you did not use chemicals then we were not good stewards in a biblical sense. The truth is that whether you believe in health stewardship or religious stewardship is not important. What is important is faith in doing the right thing. The right thing is making life the best we can in as natural a way as possible for animals and people.

If we do the right thing, stewardship will follow, integrity will not be sacrificed and people and cows will be healthier.

“Food Safety Modernization Act” or S 510

This good ole boy is not all wrong but then he is not quite right. What he says is true and our food system is in trouble, but the good news is that this new bill has not passed yet as the Senate went home for the Thanksgiving break. The vote is now thought to be on Nov 29th. We have more time to contact your Senators before they vote for this terrible bill. Listen to this You Tube recording and I hope you get mad enough to contact your senator. It is important. There will be a link on this newsletter to contact your senator.

Here is the essence of S 510 and how it came to be.

First of all, Congress, House and Senate, are not real bright and can’t think for themselves or are just plain bought off with corporate money.

We have a problem with food production in this country when it is grown for the masses by corporate “farmers”. We had little problems growing healthy food, dairy, beef, chicken, pork, grains, vegetables and fruit when we had small, caring farmers. When corporations got involved they told us that raw milk was unhealthy and it needed to be pasteurized and only corporations could do this job correctly. They told us that little farmers could not grow grains and vegetables without chemicals and massive amounts of land. They were going to feed the world. They had to raise animals in confined areas because small farmers could not do this efficiently.

Corporations do not grow food with love and thought for their consumer. They grow everything to be cheap, just like the USDA and TDA (Texas Department of Agriculture) and the Ag department in your state. There is never a thought about taste or nutrition or cleanliness. They use whatever chemicals they can find that are cheap to get plant growth and the cheapest grains for the cattle, pigs or chickens.

With crops, they wore out the soil years ago, so all the essential minerals that we need so desperately are missing in our diets, hence causing disease. Sometimes they use sludge from city sewer systems that contains massive amounts of heavy metals, drugs, micronized toilet paper, mind-altering drugs and bacteria that is not dead that can get into or on the plants that people eat. They may use animal manure with drugs and bacteria.

The outcome from these unhealthy practices can be salmonella and other live bacteria that can cause infections in people, including death. This happened in spinach and peppers about two years ago.

What is the solution for plants? Logic says clean up farming practices and grow healthy plants, but small farmers are already doing this and they are taking business away from corporations to sell to people who want to be healthy.

Corporate growers can’t lose business so they go to Congress critters and ask them to change the system. They want to get rid of those pesky little farmers so they blame the little guy for causing the outbreaks of infections, put money into campaign funds or pockets of politicians and change little except the idea of using radiation to kill the “bugs” (bacteria) in the food they produce. There is no thought about the destruction of the nutrients in the plants or lingering of radiation in the food that will cause cancer. They will tell their employees that there is no danger from sapping the food with radiation; within a few years they will be dying, but they will not care and will not be prosecuted for causing their deaths.

The same thing happens in animals as happens in plants. The chickens, pigs and cows are herded into confinement facilities and fed chemicals and foods that are genetically engineered. They poop on each other and spread disease that gets into and on the meat. This is one of the reasons food has to be overcooked in restaurants to keep you from being ill.

Radiation has been used for many years on hamburger to kill bacteria and its use is being expanded. Publix grocery stores, Schwan’s home delivery and Omaha Steaks have been using radiation for years on their hamburger. This is certain to expand to big box stores in the future.

So what is the bottom line with all this information? The government is going to take the side of corporations and “demand” (wink, wink) that they clean up the food system. They are going to legislate the farmers markets, local producers and organic sustainable farmers out of business on the premise that the public will be safe and not die in a few weeks or months. It does not matter that these policies will kill massive numbers of the people in one to ten years because it cannot be traced back to the corporations or Congress.

What do we need to do? We need a strong local system of food that is sustainable. This right may be taken away from us but we must try to stop this before it happens or with lawsuits before it is put into effect. The FDA will be the administrator of this law and we already know how they side on the side of drug corporations, doctors and hospitals as they kill hundreds of thousands of people every year.

You can contact your senators at the following link

http://senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

Please take action on this matter as it is life or death – maybe your life or that of a family member or friend. We need a system of food that is healthy to make people healthy and it will never come from corporations.

The 10 Worst Foods You Can Eat

There are many more bad foods besides the ones I mention here, but this is an interesting group. I have added two more at the end as a bonus.

If you can think of other foods that are terrible and would like to start a new list, I will be glad to do another newsletter on what you would like covered.

  1. Soup – TV ads claim that “soup is good food” but this is just not true for the major brands. Most soups are made from the cheapest ingredients and made to taste better by adding large amounts of salt, Trans fatty acids and MSG. The MSG is usually not listed on the label as the government allows industrial food corporations to hide MSG with terms like natural flavorings, yeast extract and many others.
  2. Bacon – Bacon as sold in stores is very unhealthy because of the nitrites and nitrates used in the processing. Also, all meat sold in grocery stores has been tortured, raised in their own pooh, fed and injected with hormones, antibiotics and many other chemicals. Fats are healthy in preventing cancer if they come from healthy animals, but the fats from bacon and other processed meats are terrible.
  3.  Hamburger – fast-food processed burgers are loaded with health problems. They can have 1010 calories, 71 grams of unhealthy fat, 1580 grams of salt (unhealthy salt), and 12 grams of sugar. This can make you tired besides making you feel like you don’t want to work after lunch and this does not include a drink or fries.
  4. Baked treats – cupcakes, twinkies (which are mostly chemicals), Little Debbie, and much, much more, are high is Trans fats, high fructose corn syrup and other sugars – lots and lots of calories with no nutrition.
  5. Classic potato chips – high in Trans fats, calories, high in salt (crave something to drink), and other chemicals that are addictive. They are loaded with cancer causing chemicals. And of course empty carbohydrates.
  6. Hot dogs and processed lunch meats – I have heard the words “mystery meats” because you have no idea what is in the meat. I had a friend who worked in a meat packing plant years ago who saw them grind up the female cows udders into the bologna. I have found a company that makes chicken hot dogs by grinding up chicken bones and cartilage in making their products. This does not include the massive amounts of salt, MSG, nitrates and nitrites that are put into the “meat” for flavoring, but also cause cancer.
  7. French fries – can be somewhat healthier if they are fried with healthy lard that is not from industrial produced pigs (also coconut oil), and if they are real potatoes; but today, most oils are genetically engineered (cotton seed, soy, canola, etc) and the potatoes are a pureed potato product held together with a type of glue. This is not healthy or appetizing.
  8. Doughnuts – what a collection of Trans fatty acids, processed grain, high fructose corn syrup and sugar. There is nothing in this that is beneficial.
  9. Soft drinks and juices – These are loaded with high fructose corn syrup and sugar that are horrible for your health. With the soft drinks, you also add phosphoric acid that will eat rust off of metal, dissolve metal line nails and dissolve meat in a bowl that is covered with the drink. The soft drink also has massive amounts of sodium (salt) to make you thirstier so you will consume more of their products. Drinking one 44 ounce soft drink per day will increase your body weight by 20 pounds each year.

10. Fried Catfish – Catfish is a bottom feed that, for the most part, is raised in Mississippi in ponds/lakes. They eat and swim in each others pooh and are fed genetically engineered grains. When prepared, they are fried in vegetable oil that becomes Trans fatty acids and dipped in genetically engineered corn (85 % of all corn in the US is GE). Also, if not drained of oil, the amount of Trans fatty acids is even worse. Catfish also have no beneficial fatty acids like salmon.

Honorable mention for worst foods is pizza. The dough is made from bleached flour without any nutrients, tomato based sauce that is loaded with MSG and other flavor enhancers, cheese from cows that are locked up in covered barns, standing in their own pooh 24 hours a day (with their tails cut off so they will not sling pooh on the cow next to them). The largest pizza chain in the USA just got caught putting silicone in their cheese so it has more stiffness to it.

The final mention today of the worst foods is macaroni and cheese. Macaroni is made with extrusion, high temperature and high pressure (this is like cereal) that destroy all nutrients including the artificial vitamins and minerals. The rest of this is cheese. The “cheese” has almost never seen a cow much less being produced by a cow.

If you have ideas for another newsletter please let me know.
