 Dr. Ad Versery:  After my series on poisonous cantaloupes, the Newspaper Boys and Girls, Intl., have come to me with so many news stories about sickening foods around the world, that I asked Jael to appoint another health food expert to cover these urgently importing stories.
 I am researching emerging diseases around the world, as well as working with Maleekie Ambularie on the epidemics attacking people throughout Africa, Asia and the Pacific nations.  Earth End needs new help on these food dangers.  Jael agreed, and I would like to welcome Frank Butterman, International Food and Health Safety Inspector, to the Earth End staff.  Welcome Dr. Butterman!

 Dr. Butterman:  Thank you Dr. Ad Versery.  I am pleased and honored to join the team.  At a time when food producers must double the amount of food available on the planet, we are seeing more dangers in and around foods than ever.

 Let’s start with what is most essential for human life––water.  Too many dangerous chemicals jeopardizes drinking  water across this country.  According to Environmental News Service (ENS), citizens in Midland, Texas, are suing Dow Chemical “for dangerous levels of hexavalent chromium in their drinking water.”  Although Julia Roberts made chromium-6, famous in the “Erin Brockovich” movie, the chemical industry is still blocking the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from telling Americans that chromium-6 is a cancer-causing chemical.

 In California, water in the San Joaquin River and San Francisco Bay Delta are contaminated with selenium and mercury.  Radium is now found in Las Vegas tap water.  The chemical weed killer, atrazine, pollutes groundwater throughout the Midwest.   Some 10 million people in Florida are endangered by pesticides in their water system.  Toxic PCB and dioxin swirl through New York’s Hudson River and New Jersey’s Passaic River as well.  Even bottled waters are not necessarily safe.

 While Europe requires companies to openly publish chemicals that  risk human health, here the EPA does the job, and some politicians resist that agency.  ENS cites a 2009 report from the The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention that “painted a chilling picture of toxic exposure, finding 212 chemicals in people’s bodies, 75 of which had never before been measured in Americans.”

 My next report on dangers in our food supply is just as disquieting.  As a new member of the Earth End team, I must say that our nation must return to lives of simple food and faith.  As Jeremiah cries in Bible prophecies:  “For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water (2: 13).”
