Hardened criminals

(NaturalNews) This cartoon came to me when considering the bizarre fact that farmers are being arrested all across the country for selling raw milk to their friends and neighbors. Health authorities actually conduct armed raids on raw milk resellers, as witnessed at a private food coop in Venice, CA.

So for this cartoon, I decided to stage a scene in a prison cell with all the “hardened criminals” that modern day authorities are arresting: Murderers, con artists, arsonists and raw milk farmers!

What really makes the cartoon funny though (in my opinion) is the reaction of the two rats. “OMG! That’s crazy!” And the other rat says, “Should I post it on Facebook?”

See, the idea that Facebook is so ubiquitous in society today that even prison rats have Facebook pages is hilarious. Is there anyone who hasn’t signed up on Facebook yet?

Nevertheless, this issue of people being arrested for selling raw milk is no laughing matter: It’s yet another example of the tyrannical actions of health authorities who want to sterilize your food through pasteurization, fumigation or irradiation. There’s no such thing as a safe “living” food in the eyes of the FDA, you see. Only dead food is “safe” food according to regulators.

But as we know, dead food is extremely unhealthy. Over time, dead food consumption leads to dead people. Hence our current state of degenerative disease across first world nations. So the idea of arresting and locking up the very people selling living foods that could enhance our health seems absurd.

That’s the point of these CounterThink cartoons: To capture the absurdities in our modern world and attempt to translate them into a cartoon panel (or two).

    Earthwalker is the username that PT founder Julie Genser created for her online interactions so many years ago when first creating Planet Thrive.

    Julie's (Earthwalker's) life was derailed over twenty years ago when she had a very large organic mercury exposure after she naively used a mouth thermometer to measure the temperature of just-boiled milk while making her very first pizza at home. The mercury instantly expanded into a gas form and exploded out the back of the thermometer right into her face. Unaware that mercury was the third most neurotoxic element on Earth, Julie had no idea she had just received a very high dose of a poisonous substance.

    A series of subsequent toxic exposures over the next few years -- to smoke from two fires (including 9/11), toxic mold, lyme disease, and chemical injuries -- caused catastrophic damage to her health. While figuring out how to survive day-to-day, and often minute-to-minute, she created Planet Thrive to help others avoid some of the misdiagnoses and struggles she had experienced.

    She has clawed her way over many health mountains to get to where she is today. She is excited to bring the latest iteration of Planet Thrive to the chronic illness community.

    In 2019, Julie published her very first cookbook e-book called Low Lectin Lunches (+ Dinners, Too!) after discovering how a low lectin, gluten free diet was helping manage her chronic fascia/muscle pain.

    Yet, lots of people get really sick from raw milk. I looked into it, and the Venice raid was because the “business” had no permits. They weren’t properly zoned and refused to file and papers. It would have been legal, what they were doing, but they refused to file the paperwork.

    They even found dangerous bacteria on the raw milk.

    More people get sick from commercial food then will ever get sick from raw milk. That is a fact!

    People have been drinking raw milk for eons and we as a society have managed to survive. Don’t forget most dairy farmers drink raw milk from their bulk tanks. If people were indeed dropping dead and getting really sick from raw milk, we would have no dairy farmers left.

    Bad bacteria is everywhere. The only times I have ever gotten sick from bad food was at restaurants, which I rarely eat at any more, not just because of the sanitation issues I’ve witnessed but also because the food is generally not very healthy. The truth is, people should be able to choose for themselves whether or not they want to consume raw milk. NOT the government! My kids have been drinking raw milk from my own goats since they were old enough to drink milk. I’ve been drinking it raw since I was old enough to milk – nearly 25 years now. I’ve never gotten sick from drinking raw milk. My kids are very, very rarely sick and never from food poisoning except, strangely, when I let them indulge in fast food they will get diarrhea. I think if the government wanted to save lives, maybe they should outlaw vehicles because vehicle accidents kill more children every year than anything else. Outlaw water too, because the second leading cause of children dying is drowning.
