Perhaps, a large reason for why the Monsanto head of the FDA's food safety division is threatening to get rid of raw (real) milk has just raised its ugly head.
The following is certainly no scientific assessment of Gates' project but it is clear he is intending to genetically engineer milk and is looking at altering immunity itself.
BILL GATES PAYS FOR EXPERIMENTS TO GENETICALLY MODIFY HUMANS http://deathbyvaccination.com/
Bill Gates just gave an $8.3 million grant to develop GMO Designer Humans. By simply altering, deleting, or adding certain gut bacteria (genes) and fungi, corporations can create “Designer Human Consumers” in the near future, and Bill Gates wants to do just that, starting by “spiking” the milk that a toddler drinks. Gates and corporations he licenses, could potentially make a human short, tall, smart, dumb, submissive, aggressive, autistic, savant, healthy, or constantly in need of pharmaceutal [sic] drugs, or depend on WINDOWS computer based assistance for the rest of their life.
Worst of all, Gates could potentially control how long you live. In the near future, human development can potentially be dictated by corporate America, through the Bill & Malinda [sic] Gates Foundation and their $8.3 U.C. Davis grant. http://mills.ucdavis.edu/large-multicampus-gates-foundation-project-initiated
Is this genetically engineering people? And with what authority? With unlabeled GMOs, how would anyone defend themselves against their immune system being permanently deregulated by genetically engineered milk? What safe milk would be left if the FDA manages to ban raw milk, or should one say, non-industrial milk not contaminated by pesticides, GMOs, hormones, antibiotics, and the Crohn's bacterium? If GE-milk was approved, there could be constant changes to the milk, subjecting people to whatever genetically engineered unknowns Gates may wish to try out on people.
While Gates is looking to genetically engineer milk and perhaps gut bacteria itself, a significant study has just shown that normal bacteria-rich yogurt which supports the person's own gut bacteria (their immune system) equals or even outdoes AIDS drugs. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3056109/
Gates' work would genetically engineer the milk that goes into the yogurt (as well as into cheeses, ice cream, cottage cheese, cream, butter, cream cheese, etc) which might genetically engineer the bacteria that is in the gut (thus genetically engineering the person's immune system, which is primarily comprised of gut bacteria).
The yogurt study is tremendously good news for Africa and for all AIDS patients, both medically and financially, but the NIH article ends by mentioning Gates:
For such a change in mindset to occur [using an incredibly inexpensive and locally available simple food like yogurt to treat AIDS], and for data to be appropriately obtained to gauge the degree to which probiotic food can provide relief, governments (in developed and developing countries) and organizations such as WHO and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation may have to take a lead role.
But the lead Gates is apparently taking is to undermine the yogurt [and potentially the people's immune systems], rather than just making sure people have healthy food. Gates' project might even rescue AIDS drugs by ruining yogurt and people's chances to simply get well on their own by supporting their immune system. Gates is likely aware that this is revolution that is occurring in health - the human body plus real food is curing diseases. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ad5HRNSzh8 Gates' project would impact both the body's ability to repair itself and a central food it uses to do so.
Here's the donation and the project will be led by Washington University in St. Louis - that's Monsanto territory. Jeff Gordon at Washington University will lead the work. http://gordonlab.wustl.edu/ Showing a photo of a poor African kid, once again.
"Researchers at the University of California, Davis, will join in an international research effort to develop new ways to diagnose, treat and prevent malnutrition in infants and children around the world."
Since when does one need a way to diagnose malnutrition? Or a complex biotech way to "treat" it? Or to find a way to prevent it? Beyond seeing thin children and extrapolating from that they need real food and making sure they get it? It is crucial to emphasize "real food" which is to say organic food, because genetically engineered "non-food" and processed "non-food chelates or bind the nutrients so they can't be used by the body but simply pass through.
This chelation of nutrients is argument enough for not genetically engineering milk but it also puts the lie to Gates' stated intention to deal with malnutrition since he would be increasing it. Countries could be sucked into paying large sums for Gates' special milk for malnourished children, only to find the children couldn''t get the nutrients out of it, couldn't be "nourished" by it. This would be truly MAL-nourished.
The WHO, funded by Gates, pushes AIDS drugs but has done nothing about clean water and good food. With Gates' project, they can subvert the same dairy product that shows promise to heal AIDS in Africa and can alter (?) the very immune systems of children (and thus people) who simply need food and water. (Africa is being squeezed dry of water with water mining and Gates who says he care about poor children, is involved in the move toward giant agribusiness plantations in Africa which are the primary users of that water.)
UC Davis Partners In $8.3 Million Effort
Effort To Fight Childhood Malnutrition
May 14, 2012
The new research builds on ongoing clinical studies in Africa, South Asia and South America of malnourished and healthy infants and children and their mothers.
Researchers at the University of California, Davis, will join in an international research effort to develop new ways to diagnose, treat and prevent malnutrition in infants and children around the world.
The Breast Milk, Gut Microbiome and Immunity Project is funded by $8.3 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and will be led by the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. UC Davis will receive $1.1 million of the total.
The UC Davis researchers who will participate in the project are nutritionist Kathryn Dewey and microbiologist David Mills.
Severe malnutrition has long been thought to stem simply from a lack of adequate food. But now scientists understand the condition is far more complex and may involve a breakdown in the way gut microbial communities process various components of the diet.
The community of intestinal microbes and its vast collection of genes, known as the gut microbiome, is assembled right from birth and influenced by babies’ early environments and the first foods they consume, such as breast milk.
Through the Breast Milk, Gut Microbiome and Immunity Project, scientists will evaluate the relationship among first foods, the developing community of microbes in the intestine, and the developing immune system.
The new research builds on ongoing clinical studies in Africa, South Asia and South America of malnourished and healthy infants and children and their mothers; the Gates Foundation also funds those studies.
“This multidisciplinary project will allow us to expand our understanding of how to prevent infant malnutrition, which is a major focus of the UC Davis Program in International and Community Nutrition,” Dewey said. “The results of these experiments will provide critical information about whether the lipid-based nutrient supplements that we are evaluating in ongoing research have an influence on the collection of microorganisms in the human gut, which will help us understand the impact of our interventions on child growth."
As director of the International Lipid-Based Nutrient Supplements Project, Dewey is involved with two projects in Malawi that are providing biological samples for the newly funded research consortium. More information about the lipid-based nutrient supplement project is available at: http://ilins.org.
As part of the new project, Mills and his colleagues at the UC Davis Foods for Health Institute will examine the complex, protective sugars in breast milk and characterize specific bacteria in the guts of these infants. The researchers also will look for similar protective sugars in existing dairy products.
“This project will identify specific milk components from commercial dairy streams, which -- in combination with milk-responsive bacteria -- may extend the natural protection of mother's milk past weaning to a fragile population of children who desperately need that protection,” Mills said.
“The opportunity to deliver diet-based solutions in the near term sourcing from commercial milk operations is truly exciting, ” he said.

The overall project will be led by Jeffrey I. Gordon at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
