The rumors are flying around here on the Eastside of Crete that President Obama and family will be staying here in Elounda soon.  If true, I must admit that it is not that bad of an idea.  The weather is perfect, the water clear and warm, the food fresh and healthy and ancient history at every turn. Whether he shows or not, it was good to see that he was working (press release below) when…
Sitting in the private conference room of U.S. District Judge Donovan Frank yesterday with Stephanie and her mom Sharon as the judge carefully considered the settlement with Cargill, brought home again to me the reality of Stephanie’s struggle – all because she ate a hamburger. As AP reported, “Smith and Cargill announced the settlement last month, saying it would provide for Smith’s care throughout her life.” However, “[t]he former children’s dance instructor was left…
Pane d’Amore is a new little specialty shop (one of many) on Bainbridge Island that sells wine, cheese, fresh bread, but here, yes, they sell raw milk. You would have thought that the owners of Pane d’ Amore would have checked the White Pages on Bainbridge Island, or at least “googled” – raw milk lawyer – before they opened shop. I stopped in today to try and support a new, local (they opened their first…
The CDC announced that a total of 35 individuals infected with a matching strain of Salmonella Newport have been reported from 11 states since March 1, 2010. The number of ill people identified in each state with this strain is as follows: AZ (2), CA (17), CO (1), ID (5), IL (1), MO (1), NM (1), NV (2), OR (2), PA (1), and WI (2). Case-patients range in age from <1 to 75 years old,…
I must admit that I tire of the moans from raw milk advocates that Big Dairy and Big Government is out to get them. I shake my head at the unfounded belief that grass fed cows will never produce a pathogen that can sicken a child. I cringe at the anti-science blather protesting that all outbreaks linked to raw milk never happened, or were caused by something else, or were part of some dark conspiracy…
I love Economists.  Actually, one of my three BA’s was in Economics.  When you look at the cost of just two bugs that the Economic Research Service (ERS) looked at, you have to wonder why we do not demand more from the corporations who feed us and the government that is supposed to regulate them? The Economic Research Service (ERS) estimates of the costs of illness and premature death for a number of foodborne illnesses have…
There seems to be no middle ground in the debate over raw milk. On the one side, you have farmers happy to sell a product for $10 to $18 a gallon, and consumers who believe that they are purchasing a product that is not only more healthful but will also cure everything from allergies to autism. On the other side, you have public health officials defending the time-tested benefits of pasteurization as a way to…
In what seems like a near daily article on raw milk, I gave Georgina Gustin of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (my dad was a paper boy for them during the depression) a few choice words: Bill Marler, an attorney who specializes in food-borne illness cases, recently represented two Missouri residents who were sickened by raw milk. One was a 1-year-old boy; the other, a 9-year-old girl. Both suffered acute kidney failure related to E. coli,…
