- One of the most crucial missions of rense.com is to stop
the beef and dairy poisoning - and deaths - of untold millions of Americans.
The massive consumption of these 'products' leads inevitably to the countless
numbers of health breakdowns and diseases...everything from cancer to heart
disease to Crohn's, IBS and colitis...which are ravaging what's left of
this faltering society.
- MAP (mycobacterium paratubercolosis) in beef and all
dairy products is the primary cause of MOST Crohn's, IBS and
colitis. MAP is projected to infect about a third of US dairy
and beef herds.
- "I am absolutely certain that some strains of MAP
can be pathogenic for humans and can cause Crohn's disease in susceptible
people. Since MAP is known to be a primary specific cause of chronic inflammation
of the intestine in many different species, including primates, it would
be remarkable if it did not cause disease in humans." -John
Hermon-Taylor, Professor, St. George's Medical School, London, England
and a leading world expert on Crohn's Disease.
- And now read this...
- "Since Crohn's disease was first recognised in the
early part of the twentieth century, it has been theorised that the disease
is caused by a bacterial infection, with the principal suspect being mycobacteria,
and more specifically in recent times, Mycobacterium paratuberculosis.
Recently, research is making advances in understanding this organism, and
is indicating more and more that at least some cases of Crohn's disease,
if not all, are caused by paratuberculosis infection. Most importantly,
the majority of Crohn's patients treated with antibiotic treatment which
has activity against Mycobacterium paratuberculosis go into clinical remission.
- This is important information for sufferers of Crohn's
disease, because Mycobacterium paratuberculosis is endemic in foods derived
from cattle in most areas of the western world. Mycobacterium paratuberculosis
causes a chronic Inflammatory Bowel Disease in cattle, and many other species,
which is similar to Crohn's disease. In some countries, the percentage
of cattle herds infected with Mycobacterium paratuberculosis is extemely
high. In the United States, 40% of large dairy herds are infected with
- Mycobacterium paratuberculosis is present in the milk,
faeces and meat of infected cattle. There is a large body of evidence which
indicates that Mycobacterium paratuberculosis is not killed by the standard
food processing techniques that we rely on to protect us from disease-causing
bacteria, such as pasteurization and cooking. Mycobacterium paratuberculosis
may also be present in water supplies in areas where the faeces of infected
cattle wash into the water supply, and standard water treatment methods
do not kill it.
- Up to now, the beef and dairy industries have preferred
to defer action on removing Mycobacterium paratuberculosis from herds of
food animals until it is proven that Mycobacterium paratuberculosis causes
disease in humans. That proof has now arrived. In February 1998, a paper
was published in the British Medical Journal which documented the first
proven case of M. paratuberculosis causing disease in a human being. The
patient, a seven year old boy, developed a M. paratuberculosis infection
in the lymph nodes of his neck. This was followed, after a five year incubation
period, by an intestinal disease that was indistinguishable from Crohn's
disease. See Mycobacterium paratuberculosis Cervical Lymphadenitis followed
five years later by terminal ileitis similar to Crohn's Disease for more
- (from http://alan.kennedy.name/crohns/welcome.htm)
- So, you see, the answer to Crohn's, in most cases, is
proven and profoundly obvious. M. Paratuberculosis is a killer
and it is found in beef flesh and dairy products. And the world needs to
know. STOP eating MEAT and STOP eating DAIRY.
- By the way...Mad Cow Disease - does the USDA care? Forget
- The USDA would only check about 23,000 out of 32 MILLION cattle
slaughtered and eaten every year for mad cow disease...because they KNOW
it is common in US cattle. It is so common, the USDA announced
about a year ago that it is REDUCING the number of
cattle tested yearly by NINETY PERCENT to something like 2,300. Reducing
the number of cattle tested to a fly-speck in number tells the story,
loud and clear.
- And then there are the two US slaughterhouses which
each built on-premesis labs so they could test EACH cow processed
for mad cow disease. It's the LAW in Japan, by the way.In both cases,
the USDA essentially said, "Try it and you're out of business"
and blocked them from testing their cattle.
- In fact, the Bush administration is now fighting to PREVENT
the testing for mad cow disease in the U.S. Don't believe it? Read on...
- Americans are being sacrificed...murdered...to protect the
beef and dairy industries.
- Crohn's, IBS and colitis is caused by MAP in beef flesh
and in dairy products. End of story.

- Hi Jeff -
- Congrats on your paper.......there have been reports
of mycobacterial infection as a cause of Crohn's disease for decades. [http://www.rense.com/general77/croh.htm]
- One wonders why it takes so many years for "medical
science" to prove or disprove this research. I suspect "ignorance
is bliss" in science as it certainly is much more lucrative to treat
a disease in which little is known about the cause -- in comparison of
the cost savings when the cause is known!!
- (There are 129 citations relating to "M. paratuberculosis
and Crohn's disease on the PubMed website -- dating back to the 1980s.)
- I strongly suspect the ultimate "proof" of
mycobacteria in this disease and other closely related gastrointestinal
diseases is being delayed because the implication of infected meat and
dairy is "politically incorrect." The same situation holds for
the finding of acid-fast mycobacteria in cancer, etc.
- I find it amazing that so-called "conspiracy websites",
such as rense.com, seem to contain more important "science" than
is found in most medical journals nowadays.
- Keep on educating your readers to important research
that needs to be exposed to the public.
- PS: Below is just one example of the validity of up-to-date
research connecting bacteria to Crohn's.

- Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis is the
causative agent of Johne's disease, a chronic enteritis in ruminants including
cattle, sheep, goats, and farmed deer. Recently, this bacterium has received
an increasingly wide interest because of a rapidly growing body of scientific
evidence which suggests that human infection with this microorganism may
be causing some, and possibly all, cases of Crohn's disease. Recent studies
have shown that a high percentage of people with Crohn's disease are infected
with M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis; whether the association of this
bacterium and Crohn's disease is causal or coincidental is not known. Crohn's
disease is a gastrointestinal disease in humans with similar histopathological
findings to those observed in the paucibacillary form of Johne's disease
in cattle. The search for risk factors in Crohn's disease has been frustrating.
However, epidemiologists have gathered enough information that points to
an association between M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis and Crohn's disease.
This paper reviews epidemiological models of disease causation, the major
philosophical doctrines about causation, the established epidemiological
criteria for causation, and the currently known epidemiological evidence
of M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis as a possible cause of Crohn's disease.

- The control of ovine Johne's disease (OJD) is important
for domestic trade, the viability of farming units and possibly also
for public health. Current strategies in Australia have included quarantine
and pasture spelling to decrease prevalence and shedding rates and reduce
numbers of Mycobacterium paratuberculosis (Mptb) ingested by susceptible
sheep. However, alternative procedures are needed and vaccination with
Gudair has recently commenced. This review examines prospects for the
control of OJD by chemotherapy, vaccination and mycophages. Current chemotherapeutic
regimes for treatment of M. paratuberculosis in ruminants are prohibitively
expensive and of dubious efficacy, and apart from environmental concerns,
mycophage therapy lacks a track record of success against intracellular
bacteria. There is substantial evidence that live and killed mycobacterial
vaccines reduce the incidence of clinical disease and shedding rates in
OJD. An appraisal of recent experimental results suggests that neonatal
vaccination with a defined dose of M. paratuberculosis offers the best
prospects for the induction of protective Th1-type immunity.

- M. paratuberculosis is naturally resistant to many commonly
used antimicrobial drugs.
- IN VITRO | IN VIVO
- Information about the susceptibility of M. paratuberculosis
to antimicrobial drugs is minimal. This is largely because treatment of
animals with Johne's disease is considered to be too costly.
- Drug susceptibility in vitro
- M. paratuberculosis has not heretofore been considered
a human pathogen. For a review of this issue please visit the page of
this website called "Zoonotic potential". However, treatment
of Chron's disease patients for M. Paratuberculosis has been tried and
results of such studies are described on that page.
- It has not been considered economically prudent to treat
animals with Johne's disease. The chances of curing the animal are low,
the cost of the drugs is high and the meat and milk derived from animals
treated with the kind of potent drugs required are not suitable for human
consumption. Hence, very little research has been done to establish a
profile of drug susceptibility based on laboratory tests (i.e. in vitro
drug susceptibility testing).
- What can be gleaned from the few published reports can
be loosely summarized as follows:
- Drug class or group
- Drugs tested in this group
- M. paratuberculosis susceptibility based on in vitro
- First line TB drugs*
- Rifampicin, Ethambutol, Isoniazid, Pyrazinamide
- ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin
- *TB refers to tuberculosis in humans caused by Mycobacterium
- Readers should understand the many shortcomings of this
- 1) the table is based on very limited amounts of data
from different sources and not all of it is consistent.
- 2) there are antibiotic susceptibility differences among
M. paratuberculosis strains.
- 3) methods for performing drug susceptibility studies
on a pathogen that grows so slowly are not well developed.
- 4) in vitro tests on mycobacteria are notoriously poor
at predicting treatment efficacy in vivo (meaning what is predicted to
work based on laboratory tests often fails in patients).
- Animal treatment
- The most comprehensive review of this topic was written
by Guy St, Jean (The Veterinary Clinics of North America - Food, volume
12, pages 417-430, July, 1996). The most recent report of attempted treatment
of a cow with Johne's disease is found on pages 56-60 of the Proceedings
of the 34th Annual Convention of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners,
September 13-15, 2001.
- The conclusion from both the review and the recent single
case study is that therapy for clinical paratuberculosis in cattle is
costly, inconvenient (requires daily medication) and produces remission
of clinical signs only, not elimination of the infection. Once treatment
stops, the signs of the infection return since the infection was not cured.
Costs to treat a 550 Kg cow range from roughly US$1/day for isoniazid
to over US$200/day for amikacin. Given that treatment must continue for
at least 6 months and that the economic value of most cows is only US$1,000
- US$2,000, it is seldom financially rational to treat cattle with paratuberculosis.
In addition, meat and milk from treated cows legally can not be used
for human consumption. The one situation where treatment may be useful
is to maintain genetically valuable cow long enough to recover embryos.
