Wash What You Eat: Cyclospora Outbreak in North Texas, Ctd.’

On August 7, Bradford Pearson’s post on D Healthcare Daily alerted us to the cyclospora outbreak story in North Texas.  Today, he files a follow-up noting the 280 people in Texas infected with cyclospora don’t appear to be related to the cases linked to the salad mix from Taylor Farms of Mexico.

Public health investigators have interviewed ill people in Texas about their exposures during the two weeks before they became ill. The interviews covered what food they ate, and where they ate and purchased their food. On the basis of these interviews, investigators have identified a cluster of ill people who reported eating at the same restaurant, though that restaurant did not serve the tainted salad mix, from Taylor Farms of Mexico.

Can we just get rid of salad mix altogether? Lettuces trapped in plastic bags or containers is just not a good idea.

    I blame the recycled poop they use as fertilizer at large farms. One bad day at the sterilizing factory and, well, poop.

    CHEMOTHERAPY SUCCESS WITH ALOE VERA! This is a must read Internet article for all those diagnosed with cancer or who have a loved one who is. Just google the title to access the article.

    Numerous scientific studies at universities and colleges have shown that the Aloe vera plant contains a myriad of nutrients to help prevent and heal various diseases (including cancer and diseases that result from obesity).

    When taking aloe vera during chemotherapy, healthy cells are able to utilize the ingredients in aloe vera for protection against the debilitating effects of chemo, which results in the chemo destroying mainly the cancer cells while leaving the healthy cells alone. The properties in aloe vera also help chemo patients suffer a lot less through the chemo and radiation process.

    Why are the FDA and CDC withholding the truth about the source of the
    cyclospora pathogen which HAS SICKENED OVER 600 people across the
    US? The FDA AND CDC KNOW cyclospora originates in human feces and
    can be spread in sewage sludge biosolids used for crop “fertilizer” and
    reclaimed sewage effluent water used for crop “irrigation”. The US
    EPA promotes the use of sludge biosolids and tainted irrigation water for farming and
    to grow vegetables to enable big cities and urban areas to dump their toxic,
    pathogenic wastes in Rural America “on the cheap” -and that is why the
    truth is being covered up. http://sludgevictims.com/plants/VEGETABLECLASSASLUDGE.pdf
