During the 20th century, Middle East nations rarely experienced
Crohn's Disease, irritable bowel syndrome, or ulcerative colitis. These
western diseases were virtually unherd of.
This weekend, I scanned
the scientific literature and found this astonishing publication:

Inflammatory bowel disease in children, an
evolving problem in Kuwait.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) was previously thought a rare disease
among children in Kuwait since most diarrhea cases were attributed to
infections. In the past few years we observed an increase in the number
of patients presenting with IBD.
Out of a total of
130 children with IBD, 92 (71%) had Crohn's disease, 36 (28%) had
ulcerative colitis and two (1%) had indeterminate colitis.

On May 2, 2002, Notmilk reported:
dairy industry is intentionally sending cows afflicted with Johne's
disease to the Middle East.
Down under dairymen have invented a
new form of the classic children's game, "Tag, You're It!"
diagnosed with Johne's Disease have diarrhea and heavy fecal shedding of
bacteria. These diseased cows are infected by mycobacterium
paratuberculosis. These bacteria multiply in milk, and are not destroyed
by pasteurization. Occasionally, the milkborne bacteria will begin to
grow in human hosts, and irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn's results.
Why are the Australians doing this dastardly deed? Perhaps they
figure that those Arabs just don't know any better, so why not? The
desire for dollars betrays their act of bioterrorism. This is a crime
against mankind. Here's the story as it apppeared in the Australian
This is what
America's dairy farmers learned about Crohn's and Johne's, having read
this truth in the January 24, 1995 issue of Hoard's Dairyman:
disease and Crohn's disease are remarkably similar in clinical signs and
Apparantly, Arabs do not read the Journal of
Clinical Microbiology. The May 31, 1993 issue of that journal revealed:
"Mycobacterium paratuberculosis was isolated from tissue taken from
patients with Crohn's disease and is implicated in the etiology of
The Australians must be keeping a stiff upper lip
after having read the February 1998 issue of the British Medical Journal
"Mycobacterium Paratuberculosis crosses the
species barrier to infect and cause disease in humans."
Crohn's disease might find it easier to fertilize their land, and turn a
not so arable desert into a blooming oasis. They will have Australian
dairy farmers to thank for this gift. What percentage of Crohn's victims
are infected with this bovine bacteria? In September of 1996, the
National Academy of Sciences published this bit of trivia:
"Mycobacterium paratuberculosis RNA was found in 100% of Crohn's disease
patients, compared with 0% of controls."
Cows infected with
Johne's disease are at an epidemic proportion in Australia. This past
year, Australia has shipped 20,000 cows to the Middle East. Nearly
one-third of Australian bovines are infected with this disease that can
be passed on to human milk consumers. You do the math. Humans get
irritable bowels by drinking infected milk from these animals, then
This story needs to grow legs. This story needs

I contacted the United Arab Emirates embassy and gave
this information to Sarah Fatassi. I have been assured that her
government will be taking this matter seriously. I also spoke with
Nasser Behbhehani of the Kuwaiti mission.
Hopefully, both consulates
will take this important information back to their nations.
