Instead of utopia and paradise, Germany’s green dreams are delivering an ecological nightmare, turning the country into a toxic cesspool of lethal man-made biocides: botulism and now E-coli bacteria. Millions of consumers are now at risk.
A few days ago I wrote about how biogas plants are producing and distributing deadly botulism throughout Germany and how a thousand farms and thousands of heads of cattle have been infected, along with wildlife. Even humans have been infected.
Worse, the media and authorities are choosing to ignore the problem completely – and thus are putting thousands of lives at risk. Veterinary officials even refuse to ban the slaughter of botulism-infected cattle (to avoid the compensation of farmers by the state), and so the meat of the botulism-infected cattle is being marketed to consumers!
Now E-coli bacteria – likely from organic farms
Now there’s a new deadly bacteria released that is rapidly spreading rampantly all over Germany – E-coli bacteria. So far it has infected and sickened hundreds of Germans and has claimed the lives of 2 people. The online Bild daily here reports that on Saturday an 83-year old woman died of the “Killer-Bacteria E-coli” and that a 25-year old woman died yesterday in Bremen – showing the symptoms (tests must still be done to confirm the E-coli). Bild writes:
The E-coli bacteria are spreading at a rapid speed in Germany. About 300 people have been infected thus far, over 40 patients are suffering from the life-threatening hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS), which is caused by the intestinal bacteria. It leads to kidney failure, damage to blood vessels and anemia.
A spokesman at the Hamburg Health Dept.: ‘The situation is serious!’ “
The news of the E-coli epidemic is making headlines everywhere; authorities are in a state of alarm.
The bacteria cause bloody diarrhea and intestinal bleeding, and can lead to death if not treated in time.
Origin of the deadly bacteria
Officials are searching feverishly for the origin. Media reports and experts say the source is very likely from raw, unwashed vegetables. I immediately wondered if all that healthy organic food grown in nature without industrial processing could be the source. My suspicions seem to be well-founded. Bild writes:
The horrible suspicion: Contaminated manure, often used as fertilizer for organic vegetables could be the source!”
The Federal Institute for Hazard Assessment warned already back in January: ‘Through contact with feces, for example manure fertilizers, food plants could be burdened with E-coli.’ Martin Hofstätter, Greenpeace agriculture expert: ‘The manure is spread by the wind and lands on also on fruit and vegetables of neighbouring fields.’
It is quite possible that the contaminated manure is still finding its way onto fields.”
Someone ought to tell that Greenpeace “expert” that industrial food at least gets washed and cleanly processed according to strict quality standards, and not picked and handled by soiled hands and sold directly to consumers as “fresh and healthy”.
So much for the green paradise. Add this contamination to the list, which now includes mercury from energy saving lights, botulism from biogas plants, and cadmium in solar panels. And let’s not forget the bird-shredding windmills that litter the landscape.
