Dr. Hurry was also a huge fan of eugenics. Folklore has it that Germany, that is Nazi Germany, used the Indiana law on eugenics as the model for their own efforts. This doesn’t diminish all of his work in Public Health but it should give pause to enshrining him in any Hall of Fame.
Re: carp bombs
If Jonas Salk had also detonated a random baby every month of his life, he’d still be worthy of celebration in the balance. Everyone must beware the tendency to diminish the importance of someone’s contributions because they had also had a “problematic” opinion or two. I’d rather have a Wiley or a Hurty than a thousand armchair philosophers.
Same goes for authors. Read a book on its own merits and quit trying to torpedo it because the author wasn’t the ideal paragon of your particular subculture. If you must yap and chew like a terrier, consider biting down on a rag while you read, to spare the book. Someone else may find nourishment where your delicate system, having wrenched and entangled itself, can find nothing digestible.
Milk adultration is still found in many countries which lack food regulations. We still have dairy men add water and chemicals to preserve milk. Although many milk providibg companies have excellent labs to test milm before procurement. Still lonv way to go and make milk pure for childern and babies safe of any bacteria. They inject cows and add harmones in feed to produce more milk which may be harmful for infants. World must help in awareness in under developed countries.
I truly hope, in the near future, how the animals themselves are treated in today’s dairy industry will be considered crazy and outlandish. Then…no more we will have to stand witness to a poor defenseless cow being pushed and shoved along with a bull-dozers!
I was raised on a small dairy farm and drak unpasteurized milk all my life, but as I recall my parents were very careful with the milk. Reading this article makes my skin crawl and also makes me appreciate not living back in the “good old days”.
Wow. It’s disgusting what people would/will do to make money. I understand people were desperate to make a living, but that was ridiculous. Do something else to make an honest living rather than poison people.
I grew up drinking mostly raw got milk from our own goat, and dairy milk that we bought from a local dairy. I now buy raw cow milk from a local dairy that I trust.
Ah the good old days. it looks like a lot of necessary regulations will go by the wayside. We still expect certain industries to regulate themselves, and allow this kind of predatory adulteration of products, for profit.
Amazing that most societies go through this on their way to becoming more …. modern? I thought of the recent scandals in China with toxins in baby formula and the fake rice (laced with bits of plastic to bulk it up) being sold in India. It’s disconcerting how much nefariousness happens without a lot of public outcry and, ultimately, regulations.
This is just one of the reason why regulation is need. Left up to there own device business men will pick higher profits over everything else.
I lived next to Wiley Hall, a dorm at Purdue.
Now I know much more!
