A Cardinal Sin “The cardinal responsibility of leadership is to identify the dominant contradiction at each point of the historical process and to work out a central line to resolve it.” – Mao Tse-Tung
Yesterday (10/28/2011), a case of E. coli was reported in a St. Louis man who will most likely not be celebrating last evening’s game-seven world series baseball win by his home team Cardinals over the Texas Rangers.

The infection has sickened 23 people between the ages of 11 to 94 in the St. Louis area. Six of those sickened were hospitalized…The bacteria is most often spread through the consumption of contaminated foods, the consumption of unpasteurized milk, drinking non-disinfected water, contact with cattle and contact with the feces of infected people.” Early this morning, news of another possible raw milk infection story hit the newswires.
north-carolina-e-coli/ Coincidentally, yesterday I was personally attacked in a well distributed raw milk newsletter as being as being: “…biologically savvy as molten lead.” That may be true, but there is one cardinal rule that is beyond debate: raw milk drinkers continue to get sick from bacterial infections and die.

”Ten cases of E. coli infection have been confirmed and another 16 cases are under investigation in what may be a growing disease outbreak that appears to be linked to the North Carolina State Fair, state public health officials said Friday…” Lead becomes molten at 327.5 degrees Celsius. Having reported hundreds of cases of raw milk infection in the Notmilk letter over the years, and having equally related hundreds of links to peer-reviewed scientific research regarding cancer, heart disease, bone disease, asthma, diabetes, and hundreds of other diseases whose etiology can be traced directly to milk and dairy consumption, I am proud to be compared to molten lead by raw dairy advocates. Molten lead is hot. Lately, I’ve been hot too!
Just like the newly crowned world champion St. Louis Cardinals.
