Another Dairy Coincidence
“Coincidence is the word we use when we cannot see the levers and pulleys.”
- Emma Bull
Yesterday, the Notmilk column revealed two of the most amazing coincidences in
American history. See:
In 2009, Notmilk posted two columns reporting
how easily contaminated dried milk powder
becomes with toxic bacteria.
The first revealed:
“…nearly 20,000 pounds of (dried) milk formula
imported from Taiwan and Australia had been found
to contain bacteria which can cause meningitis…”
The second revealed:
“Nonfat milk powder is the waste product dairy
producers are left with after stripping liquid
milk of its fat which is used to produce butter
and ice cream. There was a time when nonfat milk
was used to feed hogs before slaughter to fatten
them up. Protein growth hormones do that.”
“Nonfat milk powder is stored in caves
(U.S. taxpayers pay tens of millions of dollars
in rental fees) and then is purchased by USDA
and fed to starving people in third world nations.”
Non-fat dry milk has historically been responsible
for outbreaks of bacterial-related diseases. Bacteria
in non-fat dry milk are not always killed by heat
treatment. Dry milk infected with staphylococcus
toxins have infected thousands of people with
gastroenteritis. The Centers for Disease Control
has blamed increased outbreaks on milk powder.
The U.S. Standards for Grades of Nonfat Dry Milk
allows for 10,000 bacterial cells per gram.
Since there are 454 grams in one pound of dry milk
powder, expect to find no more than 4,540,000
live bacterial cells in each pound of product.

Now for the fun coincidence.
This study was published in the March 17, 2012 issue
of the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology
and Infectious Diseases:
“Emergence of multidrug-resistant NDM-1-producing
Gram-negative bacteria in Bangladesh”
The following comes from the United States
State Department Website:
“The United States has provided more than $5.5
billion in food and development assistance to
Bangladesh. Food aid under Titles I, II, and
III of PL-480 (congressional “food-for-peace”
legislation) has been designed to help Bangladesh
meet minimum food requirements.”
America’s leading export is nonfat dry milk power.
Most of our exports are double-subsidies. The dairy
industry is subsidized to produce dried milk powder
which is purchased by USDA and shipped overseas.
In 2011, The United States exported 73 million to
86 million pounds of nonfat dry milk/skim milk powder
every month which adds up to over 1-billion pounds.
Consider the dozens of columns I have written
about the creation of new antimicrobial-resistant
bacteria created by Monsanto during the process of
genetically engineering the bovine growth hormone
and my subsequent effort of working with FDA to
close Monsanto’s European manufacturing facility
for over a year.
Is the plague in Bangladesh from consuming infected
milk powder containing antibiotic-resistant bacteria
and Monsanto’s GMO errors a coincidence, or is
Monsanto expertly operating the correct levers and
pulleys so that the truth remain hidden?
Although 38 different languages are spoken in
Bangladesh, the most common one is Bengali.
What are the six most-commonly spoken languages
in the world?
Chinese (937 million), Spanish (332 million),
English (332 million), Bengali (189 million),
Hindi (182 million), Arabic (175 million)
“Two babies were born on the same day at the same
hospital. They lay there and looked at each other.
Their families came and took them away. Eighty
years later, by a bizarre coincidence, they lay
in the same hospital on their deathbeds next to
each other. One of them looked at the other and
said, So. What did you think?”
