Swine Flu and Arsenic in Animal Feeds "The Smoking Gun"

PEJ News -
cowboss - Swine Flu: Influenza A (H1N1) Susceptibility Linked To Common Levels Of Arsenic Exposure

What We Do Know Can Hurt Us -- "The ability to mount an immune response to influenza A (H1N1) infection is significantly compromised by a low level of arsenic exposure." This statement was made WRT when a "normal person or mouse is infected with the flu". I would suggest that this is equally true when a pig, chicken or turkey is infected with the flu. You and I know that Millions of pounds of arsenic are fed to poultry and pigs at the CAFOs of the world (and here someone asks - Why is the pigs and chickens immune system compromised to the point that these viruses are allowed to overwhelm it and mutate???) This Arsenic ends up in the meat you and I eat, the animal byproducts and poultry manure the livestock is forced to eat, as well as in the manure spread on farmers fields to fertilize crops which are in turn consumed by humans and animals (here, you must be starting to see the circle). You see, ALL the immune systems of humans and animals are "compromised" by this needless and reckless addition of Arsenic into the animals diet. When will "those mandated to look out for our safety", our "regulators" have the courage to admit their mistakes of the past and Ban the feeding of Arsenic to poultry and pigs.

The quoted sections above were copied from a widely published article in the ScienceDaily (May 21, 2009). I have spent many hour researching this and have found nothing to rebut the findings presented in this article. What I have found, to my absolute horror is a total lack of ANYONE to make the connection between arsenic in Food and the findings of this report despite the amount of research "out there" indicating that a significant amount of arsenic comes from the food humans consume. Why is this not being researched and discussed in the Scientific community? Could it be Ignorance -- I think NOT, not with the info available today! At the risk of being called a "Conspiratist" my gut feel is that a "Conspiracy" is exactly what it is.

Please Sign the Petition at Care2 to Ban Arsenic From Poultry and Pig Feed
