About Tim Boyd
Tim Boyd was born and raised in Ohio, graduated from Case Western Reserve University with a degree in computer engineering, and worked in the defense industry in Northern Virginia for over 20 years. During that time, a slight case of arthritis led him to discover that nutrition makes a difference and nutrition became a serious hobby. After a pleasant and satisfying run in the electronics field, he decided he wanted to do something more important. He is now arthritis free and enjoying his dream job working for the Weston A. Price Foundation.

I have a question you may be able to help answering, if terrain theory is correct, how were indigenous peoples wiped out by “infected blankets”. I did read that none of the tobacco using Indians were affected. Does terrain theory still hold if it was the introduction of an unknown “germ” into a population that caused the mass death? I’ve also read that every time a new radio wave based technology is introduced a new wave of epidemics\pandemics has occurred, as this may disrupt the terrain, but no such technology was introduced at the time of the yellow fever epidemics. I’m looking to bolster my support for terrain theory, but find this question to be hole in the theory.
