“May you live in interesting times” is said to be a Chinese expression, a blessing or a curse depending on your point of view. Unfortunately, the times we are living in are getting just a little too interesting, with the elimination of the religious exemption to vaccinations this year in Maine and New York—following California’s removal of the philosophical and religious exemptions in 2015.
While we at the Weston A. Price Foundation like to emphasize the positive, it’s hard to see a solution if you live in those states and want to protect your children. The choices are narrowing down to home school or move—and even requiring vaccinations for home schoolers may be in the sights of the vaccinators.
While the recent votes in Maine and New York are bad news indeed, they have not discouraged us from redoubling our efforts. Let’s be thankful we did have some victories this year—staving off attempts to remove religious and philosophical exemptions in Alabama, Arizona and Minnesota. Many of our members have been extremely active in these efforts; for example, in Minnesota WAPF chapter leaders purchased copies of Neil Z. Miller’s recent book, Review of Critical Vaccine Studies, and gave a copy to every legislator. See page 86 for a review of our victories and setbacks so far in 2019. Also, see Kendall Nelson’s excellent article on the sordid history of polio vaccinations on page 77.
On a more positive note, we are gearing up for another great annual conference, this time in Allen, Texas, north of Dallas. The location is a brand new hotel that is offering great prices for us allowing us to offer you lower registration fees than last year, and lower the overall cost thanks to a more reasonable room rate. We will have our additional activities: a pre-conference raw milk fundraiser reception on Thursday and our annual guided farm visit on Monday. As usual the exhibit hall is free and open to the public.
In addition to perennial favorite speakers, new faces this year include David Diamond, PhD, Becky Plotner, ND, Robert Quinn, Timothy Weeks, DC, Peter Ballerstedt, PhD, Joseph Tarantolo, MD, Jerry Tenant, MD, Esther Gokhale, Janin Farzen, Ben Edwards, MD, Pam Schoenfeld, RD and Karen Randall, DO.
No other health conference offers participants such delicious meals, along with so many interesting speakers and exhibits at such a reasonable rate. Early bird rates apply and we also have drawings for early registrants, so register early.
For details, see pages 14-17, or visit wisetraditions.org. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
