  There is overwhelming evidence that we are sitting on a public health disaster of tragic proportions. -Dr. John Hermon-Taylor UNCLEAN FOOD: MILKING THE PUBLIC By Bill Sardi Preface: You may very well be infected with a stealth bacterium that initially produces no symptoms, cannot be detected by conventional testing, and may produce illness in different organs of the body years or decades after first infection, thus eluding its identification as a master underlying cause of disease. This report is as unsettling to write as it is to read. It is a public health issue that public health authorities wish they could avoid. Though widely documented, it goes ignored. The extent to which a family of bacteria has infected humanity is broader than realized. It is the leading cause of infectious death, caused by a stealth bacterium that has killed over 1 billion humans in the past century. At any moment a health disaster of catastrophic proportions looms due to its pervasive spread. This bacterium was likely a hidden co-factor behind the last great human pandemic that swept the globe – the influenza epidemic of 1918 that killed millions worldwide. The story unfolds here……….

I t’s a stealth bacterium, undetectable by most modern laboratory methods. It has infected more than 40% of dairy herds in the US and reduced their milk production by 4 percent. It’s now positively linked to inflammatory bowel disease (known as Crohn’s disease) that infects 500,000 Americans and is a probable cause of irritable  bowel syndrome (chronic diarrhea, also known as colitis) that afflicts many more. The germ involved is mycobacterium paratuberculosis (PARA-TB), a stealth bacterium that emanates from cattle herds and eludes detection and destruction. Due to changes over many years in the feeding of cattle (they are now grain fed rather than grass fed), the digestive system of milk cows is less acidic and 40% or more of dairy herds are infected with PARA-TB, as well as many other forms of bacteria such as E. coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter. The overall bacteria load of raw milk is much higher than decades ago. PARA-TB is shed from the cows, resides in raw milk, and resists Pasteurization. The most recent study published in the Journal of Food Protection shows nearly 3 percent of retail milk cartons obtained from California, Minnesota and Wisconsin harbor PARA-TB (possibly more than half of Pasteurized milk may harbor PARA-TB in summer months). [J Food Protection, 68: 966-72, 2005] Other published studies also confirm that PARA-TB escapes Pasteurization and is harbored in retail milk cartons. In a test of retail milk samples conducted in Ontario, Canada, 15% (110 of 710) were contaminated with mycobacterium paratuberculosis. [Journal Dairy Science 85: 3198-3205, 2002] Up to 25% of milk cartons in England were found to contain DNA from PARA-TB.

The shocking answer is through that most  sacrosanct of beverages—milk.”    [LA Times, Sept. 18, 2000] © Bill Sardi, All Rights Reserved, Not for posting on other websites. 2  It should come as no surprise that Crohn’s disease rates are highest in countries where milk consumption is high, except where milk is traditionally boiled prior to consumption. Examine the following chart. The low-milk drinking countries have almost non-existent rates of Crohn’s disease. Per Capita Consumption (kg) of Milk and Milk Products in Various Countries, 2000 data., and Incidence of Crohn’s Disease Source for milk consumption: Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Canadian Dairy Information CentreCountry Fluid Milk Kilograms Cheeses Incidence of Crohn’s per 100,000 Reference data Ireland 1 163 7.0 5.9 Dublin 1996   Sweden 2 157 16.6 4.9 2003   UK 3 117 9.7 10.1-11.1 1991-92   Netherlands  4 101 14.6 6.9 1998   USA 5 97 14.0 4.56 Wisconsin 2003   Canada 6 90 11.6 14.6 Manitoba 1994-95   France 7 68 23.2 4.9 1994   Germany 8 63 12.8 5.1 Cologne 1986   Italy 9 63 20.6 2.8 Florence 1996   Japan 10 39 1.8 1.86 1988   China 11 2 - 1.00 2004 Hong Kong   1- Gut 39: 690, 1996 2- Gut. 2003 Oct;52:1432-4 3- Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol. 1998 Dec;10:1007-12. 4- Dis Colon Rectum 41:33-40, 1998 5- J Pediatrics. 2003 Oct;143:525-31, 2003 6- Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, Canada 7- Gut. 1994 Oct;35:1433-8 8- Med Klin (Munich). 1993 Sep 15;88:516-9 9- Scand J Gastroenterol. 1996 Sep;31:892-9 10- Gastroenterol Jpn. 1988 Oct;23:521-6. 11- Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. 10:646-651, September 2004    Not only has PARA-TB been found in Crohn’s disease by five investigative groups in different countries, but Crohn’s patients, and cattle that have a similar malady called Johne’s disease, have antibodies which cross react with antigens from PARA-TB. Stealth Pathogens, CRC Press 2001] The occurrence of Crohn’s disease appears to rise in geographical areas, which makes one think that there is an environmental contaminant. [Archives Neurology 61: 1057-60, 2004] Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis, causes inflammatory bowel disease (Johne’s disease) in cattle, sheep, deer, bison, monkeys and chimpanzees . “The evidence to support PARA-TB infection as a cause of human Crohn’s disease is mounting.” [Alimentary Pharmacol Therapy 15: 337-46, 2001] © Bill Sardi, All Rights Reserved, Not for posting on other websites. 3  Crohn’s is a punishing disease. About 25-45% of patients with Crohn’s undergo surgery within 3 years of diagnosis. For many, Crohn’s is a slow death sentence. Mortality over time is about 5 percent. [Gastroenterol Clin Biology 12:1233-9, 2004] Almost half of the women that have Crohn's disease report pain during intercourse and approximately forty percent have ovarian cysts. Imagine the frustration experienced by Crohn’s sufferers as they try to alert the rest of the world, only to be closeted by the news media and public health authorities. The dairy industry keeps denying there is a problem, saying their cows are not sick, but cows, like humans, can be infected without exhibiting symptoms. The US Department of Agriculture refuses to test retail milk samples for PARA-TB. Dairymen and public health authorities say they are withholding any action till human disease is positively linked with PARA-TB infection. How much more evidence is needed? While thousands of milk drinkers are swallowing down PARA-TB laden milk, the experts continue to debate. The reason for the foot-dragging is that PARA-TB is not easily detected by conventional microscopic methods, and it may take a year to culture and grow to be detected in milk samples. Only sophisticated DNA testing can repeatedly detect PARA-TB in Crohn’s patients. It was only when doctors began  prescribing to Crohn’s patients the few antibiotics known to kill lung TB, with notable remissions, that it became apparent PARA-TB is the likely cause of inflammatory bowel disease. Dairymen and public health authorities may be more attuned to protecting sales of dairy  products than human health. At risk is $30 billion in annual sales of milk. Cheese also harbors PARA-TB but hasn’t been widely tested. Cattle herds for meat are infected also. This report is not ground breaking. The link between PARA-TB and Crohn’s was reported in the Saturday Evening Post in 2004, the Los Angeles Times in 2000 and the Cleveland Free Times in 1999. An article in the September, 2000 issue of the Los Angeles Times said: “  How is Crohn’s transmitted to humans? The shocking answer is through that most sacrosanct of beverages—milk.” [LA Times, Sept. 18, 2000] Crohn’s disease groups along with the National Milk Producers Federation requested federal assitance in 2001 to clean up the animal herds, but the use of antibiotics would spawn drug-resistant forms of PARA-TB that could literally wipe out cattle herds and human populations, and massive slaughter of so many infected animals would produce an economic disaster. The only real long-term answer is to return to grass feeding of cattle herds. Some cattlemen already offer meat from grass-fed animals. © Bill Sardi, All Rights Reserved, Not for posting on other websites. 4
