*Asia's Tainted Food*

One of the costs of massive overpopulation would appear to be widespread
food adulteration - even where the source of that food is considered a
"sacred" animal: "Indians may think twice before gulping down a glass of
milk after the country’s food safety regulator found most samples collected
in a survey were either diluted or adulterated with products including
fertilizer, bleach and detergent. The study, conducted this month by the
food safety and standards authority of India, found milk was adulterated
with skimmed milk powder and glucose, or, more shockingly, hydrogen
peroxide, urea and detergent. Hydrogen peroxide is used in bleach, while
urea is commonly used in fertilizer.[image: Asia's Tainted

'Consumption of milk with detergent may cause health hazards and indicates
lack of hygiene and sanitation in the milk handling,' the regulator said in
a report. 'Addition of water not only reduces the nutritional value of milk
but contaminated water may also pose health risks.' A health ministry
official declined to comment on the report. India has long struggled with
adulteration of food and milk by unscrupulous traders. Almost 70 per cent
of the 1,791 samples taken nationwide were contaminated or watered down,
according to the report. Out of 33 Indian states, non-fat adulterants were
found in all the milk samples from West Bengal, Orissa and Jharkhand. This
adds to concern about West Bengal’s faltering health and safety standards.
In December, an adulterated batch of bootleg liquor killed at least 125
drinkers in the eastern state. The deaths came a few days after a hospital
fire killed 93 people in the state’s capital Kolkata. New Delhi fared worse
than most states, with as many as 70 per cent of the samples tainted. The
western state of Goa and eastern state of Puducherry conformed to the
standards, with no indication of adulteration in their milk." (*Reuters*,

Political Correctness & the London Olympics

Be sure to see these Olympic stories, including especially the short
video at the bottom on the opening ceremonies of the 1936 Games in

Contrast the cheap, tacky, tasteless commercialism, glitz and
political correctness of this year’s production with the classic
dignity and good taste of those earlier games, immortalized in Leni
Riefenstahl’s incomparable documentary, Olympiade/Olympia.

First Voula Papachristou , a Greek triple jumper, was banished from
the Greek Olympic team for a remark critical of the African invasion
of Greece. Pathetic Greece may be mired in debt, hopelessly corrupt
and mismanaged but its traitorous establishment bans an athlete for
tweeting her views on immigration. "The Greek triple jumper expelled
from London 2012 after she made a racist remark on Twitter says she
has been left "very bitter and upset,' admitting: 'I am trying to stay
calm, otherwise I would lose control.' Voula Papachristou, 23, was
removed from the Greek Olympic team on Wednesday after causing uproar
with the tweet about the widely reported appearance of
Nile-virus-carrying mosquitoes in Athens. She wrote: "With so many
Africans in Greece, at least the mosquitoes of West Nile will eat
homemade food." She subsequently deleted the message." (The Guardian,
August 8, 2012)

Even more outrageous was the fate of blonde blue-eyed German rower
Nadja Drygalla. Her sin wasn't anything she'd said but the
nationalist politics of her boyfriend who was a member of the
perfectly legal NPD (National Democratic Party) in Germany. "The
German rower Nadja Drygalla has left the Olympic village following
media allegations that her boyfriend is a far-right extremist. The
German Olympic Committee said Drygalla, who had already finished
competing at the Games as part of the women's rowing eight team, left
of her own accord after a 90-minute conversation with German
officials. 'Miss Drygalla confirmed credibly her commitment to the
Olympic Charter,' the head of Germany's committee Michael Vesper said.
'She is leaving the Olympic Village so as not to be a burden for the
team.' Though German officials did not give the reason for her
departure, the German public broadcaster ARD reported the 23-year-old
former police officer was suspected of sympathizing with right-wing
extremist ideology." (The Guardian, August 10, 2012)

But the fanaticism of political correctness doesn't end there. The
thoroughly whipped and self-hating German political establishment is
threatening to go even further. Reuters (August 12, 2012) reports: "
Germany may force sports stars to make a commitment to Democracy, a
ministry spokesman said on Tuesday, days after a national rower quit
the Olympic village following reports that her boyfriend was a
neo-Nazi. The case of Nadja Drygalla, whose partner has been a member
of the far-right National Democratic Party (NPD), has ignited a debate
in Germany about extremism in sport, although the rower denies holding
far-right views herself. As part of a regular review of guidelines on
sport funding, the Interior Ministry is considering insisting that top
clubs and associations make a formal commitment to democratic values.
'This is a question that arose at the end of last year ... and we are
considering it in our review,' a spokesman said. 'It is not in any way
related to the Drygalla case. Right-wing extremism in German sport has
been a concern for a long time.'" But, the NPD is a legal party
legitimately contesting "democratic" elections in Germany. Where is
the problem?
