RAW MILK FOR CATS AND HUMANS
As a senior in college, I became seriously ill with chronic pelvic inflammatory disease. After ten months in and out of the hospital, unsuccessfully treating the infection with antibiotics, I turned to herbal remedies. At that time there was a traditional herb shop in town (now illegal). Within one month of following their recommendations to the letter I was well again, with a normal white blood count for the first time in a year. I’ve since considered food to be medicine.
Over the years I paid little attention to raw milk as it hadn’t been readily available. A year ago Jake the cat, who is around seventeen years of age, had to have most of his teeth removed. It was a tremendous shock to his system and for several weeks it seemed he didn’t want to keep on living. I looked around the food co-op for nourishment that would help him recover, and was surprised to find raw milk available there. For the next few weeks I kept him on a diet of finely chopped raw wild salmon and raw milk. It was during this time Jake’s attitude and health took a complete turn for the better. Within a few months he looked far healthier, shinier and happier than he had several years before the surgery. Jake now has had a bit of raw milk every day for over a year.
I was so astonished by Jake’s transformation that I began using raw milk myself and have been amazed at how much better I feel. I’ve since found out that in Europe raw milk is widely used and available from vending machines. I’ve looked in to what pasteurization and homogenization do to milk. The damage they cause makes it very difficult for our bodies to digest milk that’s been processed. It seems incongruent that here in the U.S.there’s so much regulation of raw milk, when frequently illness and death arise from eating meat readily available in stores.
I have Jake the cat to thank for wising me up about raw milk. I continue to share this insight with others.

I am a student of dietetics at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. My mother is a member of WAPF and I grew up eating sauerkraut, fermented cod liver oil, raw milk from grass-fed cows and a multiplicity of other healthy foods that she learned about from your Foundation. I wanted to thank you for everything that you have done to help thousands of people, including myself and my family, live healthy, happy lives.
Before my mother found out about WAPF though, she had me fully immunized as a child and I grew up dealing with several health issues, one of which was major depressive disorder. Through healthy living and by incorporating a lot of healthy foods and probiotics into my diet, I have been able to combat the mental illness and am almost entirely healed from it. In many ways, I believe that I have WAPF to thank for that. Thank you for teaching many people, including my mother, how to eat healthy and feed their families right so that they can enjoy higher-quality lives. I believe that your influence in this world is immeasurable in all of the good that you have done, and I am truly grateful for it. In fact, I plan to become a registered dietitian, and specifically a GAPS practitioner, so that I can help others to lead happy, healthy lives by changing their diets.
AGGIE ELAINE CAMPBELL
A couple years ago, when I asked my wonderful housekeeper, Catherine, how her mother was doing she said, “She has slowed down a little, but you kind of expect that at ninety-eight.” I saw Catherine this week and asked again about her mother and received this report. Her mother’s name is Aggie Elaine Campbell, age one hundred one and three months. Aggie drove her car until nearly age ninety-nine. She still lives in her own home out in the country but no longer walks the twelve miles into town like she often used to do.
Her ninety-eight-year-old sister recently moved in with her and Catherine is not sure who helps whom; they kind of help each other. One of Aggie’s other daughters lives next door and now prepares the meals. Aggie has a pair of glasses, Catherine says, but refuses to wear them. All this made me wonder what Aggie ate during her lifetime that contributed to her fine health and longevity. Her daughters have had more health problems than Aggie has.
I asked Catherine to tell me what they ate growing up in South Carolina. “Well, we had milk from our cows, churned our own butter and of course, had buttermilk. We ate a lot of hog meat. Daddy would buy a small pig and raise it, then butcher it and salt the meat in the smoke house. We ate that meat with greens like kale, collards and cabbage, and had lots of tomatoes, okra and green beans. We made souse meat from the head of the pig.”
She told me they had dry beans and made molasses from sugar cane. It seems they dug a tunnel and laid the cane in there and cooked it. They also made chow chow with chopped cabbage, red peppers, vinegar, salt and pickling spices.
“We sometimes got bones with beef on them and had that with rice, but that was a Sunday meal. We also had cow’s tongue. Mother would cook it then skin it and slice it. Of course, we had chickens from the yard. We would wring their necks, then clean them and cook them. We used the feathers for pillows.”
She told me they grew potatoes and sweet potatoes. They dug a hill and put sand in it somehow to preserve them during winter. They also had corn, canned tomatoes and okra for soup, as well as string beans. They even canned sausage. They grew peaches, and hunted blackberries and picked strawberries.
She reports that her mother seems quite healthy. I asked if she ever takes flu shots. Catherine said, “Oh no, she warned all of us not to take them. Mother said you never know what is in those.” Pretty wise woman I would say.
When I’m speaking with people who are pro-vaccine, I have found it helpful not to focus on the vaccine but the liability issue.
This has also been my tactic when speaking with legislators. I don’t discuss the merits of vaccination versus non-vaccination but the need to eliminate the 1986 Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund (VICF) and make vaccine manufacturers responsible for any potential liability. Until that happens there is no need to discuss whether vaccines are beneficial, especially with legislators.
I have found that most who are pro-vaccine are not aware of the 1986 law and resulting compensation fund. Once they understand what has happened there (and subsequent Supreme Court rulings), they begin to have doubts about what they know about vaccines. Then they become open to going down the vaccine rabbit hole.
Ask them whether they would purchase a car or use a car seat where the manufacturer of the product had no responsibility or liability for any possible defects. Ask them whether they can think of any industry where the manufacturer is not held responsible and liable for any possible problems that come from the use of their product, whether it’s a manufacturing defect or a one-off problem with a certain lot. The only one who gets a free ride is the vaccine manufacturer. Any other industry or company can be sued if a person thinks their product resulted in an injury or death. The Supreme Court has ruled that vaccines are inherently unsafe and maintains that families cannot sue the manufacturer even if the manufacturer was in the position to make a safer alternative. If pro-vaxxers would stop and think about what that means, they would begin to understand that the industry is not held responsible for the safety of their product.
The VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) is actually maintained by the government; those who are pro-vaccine prefer the government websites. Make sure they understand why the 1986 law came about and what has subsequently happened to the compensation fund.
They need to know that doctors were concerned about malpractice lawsuits resulting from injuries they were seeing from vaccines. As the doctors started backing away from the vaccines, vaccine manufacturers threatened to stop manufacturing all vaccines; so the government stepped in to remove liability from the doctors and manufacturers and set up a compensation fund where anyone who was damaged after a vaccine could file a claim and be compensated. As payouts grew beyond what the government expected, the process to file a claim became onerous with a ridiculous amount of paperwork, red tape and expense for the family filing the claim; yet, in spite of the difficulty to “prove” a claim, the fund has paid out more than four billion dollars.
Because of the 1986 law, individuals cannot sue the manufacturer when injury from a vaccine is suspected, and consumers cannot file class-action lawsuits like they can against other drug manufacturers.
Part of this law created VAERS, system. Although it was set up with the expectation that doctors would report all adverse events, that is not what has happened, especially now where practitioners feel pressure to do the opposite. HHS estimates that less than 1 percent of all injuries are even reported to VAERS.
The VAERS database is searchable and you can pull out information based upon a particular vaccine as well as particular injury, including death. This was helpful when I wrote to my legislator when he spoke about deaths from measles. Using the government websites (CDC and HHS), I was able to show him that the number of deaths attributed to measles vaccines far exceeded deaths from the illness.
Once they are open to researching the vaccine question a bit more, my next question is which illnesses do we vaccinate for (the so-called vaccine-preventable illnesses) that are truly deadly? Ironically, they almost always respond with something that we don’t currently vaccinate for, like smallpox. Then it’s measles because of all the media hype, to which I ask, when was the last time someone died from measles in the U.S.? The answer is 2015. In fact from 2000-2018 there were eleven deaths from measles in the U.S., while the VAERS database lists almost 2000 deaths from the measles vaccine for the same years. Then remind them that less than 1 percent of injuries and deaths are reported to VAERS. At this point you can also raise the fact that no vaccine is safety-tested against a placebo.
If you can get a seed of doubt planted about what they have been repeatedly told, and using government websites seems to be the best way to do this since so much of what they are told is backed by the CDC, FDA and HHS, then there is a chance they will look at the issue in more depth. And once they are open to looking at the issue, there is no going back to believing that vaccines are safe and effective.
Some of the best books I have found to address the issue of vaccines from a non-emotional, sticking-to-the-facts point of view include Dr. Cowan’s book on vaccines and Forrest Maready’s books.
There is so much in the news right now about the irresponsibility and gross negligence of pharmaceutical companies surrounding the opioid crisis—seventy-six billion pills and over one hundred thousand deaths in a seven-year period. The public is outraged, Congress is outraged. . . and yet this is the same industry that can do no wrong and is being completely vindicated over the “safety” and “effectiveness” of vaccines. It’s insane.
NO JABS, NO JOB
I would like to share the experience I had regarding my daughter and vaccines.
My daughter lost her summer job because I refused to comply with the vaccine policies here at the school where she was employed. This was the third year she was hired, except that this year, as they have students coming to them from New York, they adopted a policy based on the draconian NY law just passed.
Our pediatrician keeps pushing Gardasil and other vaccines every time we have a physical. And she wrote on my daughter’s vaccine chart that she is not up to date.
I was initially vaccinating my daughter. But I stopped a number of years back when I became familiar with Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s story, and as more and more advocates and parents of injured children were sounding the alarms. The ungodly corruption surrounding Big Pharma and many other agendas directed to undermine the health of the public have become quite clear. Children are their biggest and most vulnerable targets.
It is not easy to explain to your own child why someone, like his/her doctor or school, who is supposed to be doing good things for them, is actually advocating something that may harm them. And with all this pressure coming from all directions, it is the parent who has to be on the defensive for advocating the child’s wellbeing. It is crazy making! Everything in our culture is being turned on its head.
Anyway, the director of the summer program called me to tell me that if her vaccines are not up to date, she will have to release my daughter from her job. Following the exchange, I did send in a religious exemption similar to the one I provided my daughter’s school several years back. I did not file with the pediatrician at the time, but have now. I got a rote response from the school which left my daughter very upset and embarrassed.

PASTURED POULTRY CHALLENGE
People are becoming aware of the value of soy-free eggs, and that is good—I am a farmer producing soy-free eggs myself—but I find it disturbing to see such a complete lack of emphasis on the “pasture-raised” aspect of egg production. I believe that truly pasture-raised eggs fed soy would be a better choice than soy-free confinement-raised eggs, organic or not. And “organic” status certainly does not guarantee the hens are kept on pasture. In fact, in over ten years’ experience farming, the pasture raising of eggs is one of the most complex industries on the farm because of the need for frequent and rapid moves across pasture in all sorts of weather at all sorts of ages of birds, even for a small flock of chickens. For this reason, “pasture-raised” is also a widely abused term, and one must work really hard to find a farm that is dedicated to fulfilling the “pasture-raised” criterion in an authentic way—that is, not sticking the birds in a huge building surrounded by a poultry fence and saying they’re “on pasture.”
Remember, too, that Dr. Price found that the most nutrient-dense foods come from animals raised on fast-growing grass, not those kept in a permanent lot devoid of vegetation, even if their diet happens to be organic ingredients that exclude soy.
I see first-hand the ridiculous amount of consumer deception in the marketplace, and I think WAPF supporters are best served to get cozy with a local farmer of integrity who understands the principles that Dr. Price uncovered and adheres to them in his day-to-day efforts to grow real food. It’s very unlikely that such products will ever be found in stores, and I know those farmers need all the support they can get. I am one of them, struggling to be heard in a room packed full of green-washed deceivers.
OSTEOPOROSIS IN SCANDINAVIA
In browsing through mercola.com reading Dr. Mercola´s different statements, one in particular sticks out as a lie. According to Mercola, “Other research is now showing a connection between high levels of vitamin A and osteoporosis. In fact, many Scandinavian countries that regularly supplement with cod liver oil have rampant osteoporosis even though they are getting adequate amounts of oral vitamin D.”
This is not true! I´m a fifty-year-old Swede, and I have worked seven years in Norway. I have never met a single person who supplements with cod liver oil, myself included. The rampant osteoporosis is due to the fact that Scandinavian and Finnish people are the heaviest coffee drinkers in the world. This leads to a poor vitamin C and calcium uptake, among other things. There was a thorough investigation a couple of years ago to clarify why the indigenous people in the north (the Sámi people, formerly called Laplanders) of Sweden had such bad health. They lived reasonably good lives with few stress factors and they had in comparison with other Swedes a better diet. The only thing that stood out was the fact that they consumed almost a third more coffee then the rest of us. So of course they were depleted of every single nutrient! This is what the researchers concluded.
I eat a lot of vegetables, including about two cabbages per week. From the end of April to the end of May, 95 percent of the fresh organic cabbages bought at the local farmers market near Phoenix, Arizona, have been malformed. I’m not talking about the normal variations that naturally occur in all plants, but what could be the beginning of major and troublesome mutations. Such malformations are typically caused either by genetic engineering, dangerous electro-smog (especially 5G) or intense amounts of nuclear radiation from reactors. One medical colleague who saw the photos suggested that viruses or toxins in the soil might be the cause. A scientist friend told me that the nodules (see below) were tumor growths. Whatever the cause(s) of the malformed cabbages, however, the normal growth and metabolic signals have been dramatically interfered with.
When I opened the first two cabbages, I thought that their malformations were a fluke and thus did not take photos. After the third cabbage, I knew that there was a serious problem. A picture is worth a thousand words (see below).
And now, the obviously mutated cabbages. The first five photos were of two cabbages bought at the beginning of May 2019. In the following photos of all the mutated cabbages, note that the cabbages contain a layer of something dark, which is always toward the edge of the vegetable. The dark stripe will become clearer as we progress.
Today (May 20, 2019), as soon as I held the above cabbage, the energy of it didn’t feel right and I muscle tested weak for it. Cutting it open confirmed my suspicions. As stated earlier, over 95 percent of the cabbages I’ve bought in the past three or four weeks have had a mutation consisting of strange, packed nodules and a dark line toward the edge of the vegetable. I have bought cabbages (and other organic vegetables) from the same honest farmer for the past several years and have never had any problems with his cabbage. He willingly exchanged the mutated cabbages for fresh cabbages, but the replacements have had the same problems.
Even if some pesticides or herbicides managed to migrate onto his farm, I am not aware of any chemicals that could create such malformations; even conventionally raised crops do not exhibit such gross changes. Therefore, because these cabbages in question are organic, I can only surmise that either a virus—or more likely, some form of unusual radiation such as a newly installed 5G tower—is responsible. Readers are welcome to write me care of my website.

The Rife Handbook of Frequency
Therapy and Holistic Health
Ever wonder why it’s young white males who carry out mass shootings? The answer is found in the field of pharmacogenetics.
A major enzyme (cytochrome P450 “2D6”) is missing in 10 percent of white males; it is not missing in African Americans. This enzyme metabolizes Adderall, Risperdal, haldol, psilocybin, cocaine, codeine and similar drugs. Most of these shooters are or have been on psych drugs and street drugs. (And most shooters, if not all, have been fully vaccinated.) As children, they are misdiagnosed as mentally ill instead of polymorphic (missing the enzyme to metabolize the drug). Thus they accumulate the contra-indicated drug given to them by physicians and additionally accumulate the street drugs.
These prescriptions are handed out by every level of physician from family doctors to pediatricians to psychiatrists, practitioners who have no knowledge of pharmacogenetics or who have not warned physicians about the street drugs that correspond with the missing enzyme.
These drugs cause heinous ideations—not ordinary ideations but ideations that are abject evil. It is not their own ideations. The heinous ideations are different. They are caused by the accumulation of the toxic load of contra-indicated drugs. Additionally, quick withdrawal will also take the person over the edge. Every drug manufacturer already knows this, but not the physicians whose education has been suppressed in med school by pharma interests.
If you actually read the package insert, the manufacturers have to show the metabolic pathway through the Cytochrome P450 super-family of enzymes that their drug must take to be excreted. Some drugs are therefore marked with a black-box warning of suicide. But they don’t mention homicide on the label, behavior that is simply outer direction of blame as opposed to self-blame. But that is not mentioned as it would constitute a big red social flag pointing to medication and the inability for individuals to metabolize based on culture and inherited genetics.
This is Pharma’s biggest secret. These mass shooters need to be genetically tested (for example, by Genesight, which Medicaid does cover). Unfortunately, some hospitals refuse to do the test (like University of Iowa Medical Hospitals). However, Mayo, Chicago Hospitals and St. Jude are regularly testing children and patients before they prescribe a drug—because they know this that you don’t know. But what they don’t know is the fact that the vaccine excipients and xenobiotics are the hidden root cause of the early childhood injury that manifests itself in a diagnosis of mental illness. Then, the individual is given additional drugs that are poisonous to them because they do not have the enzyme to metabolize them, especially young white males. Cytochrome P450 “2D6” metabolizes up to 50 percent of today’s modern drugs. (Suicides and homicides of normal people gone mad are listed on SSRIStories.net.)
ON “FOOD” IN JAMAICA
I got into trouble on an Internet group for some comments I made about Jamaican food. “I’ve been married to a Jamaican for thirty years and been living with them and blah blah blah and that’s not what we eat!!” was what this other “white lady” had to say. When I responded that I was married to a Jamaican, too, and that’s what we eat, she replied, “Well, then I’m sorry for you.”
I had described a big pot of boiled starchy vegetables: yellow yam, “Irish” (our word for potatoes), cassava and often some other weird roots—I have no idea what they are—also boiled green bananas, boiled green plantains and sometimes a piece of gooey sweet boiled ripe plantain. These starchy vegetables are referred to in my family as “food” and served with any kind of vegetable cooked in a whole lot of coconut oil. We season the veggies and add protein, which is dried salted fish. In fact ackee (a local vegetable) and salt fish is the Jamaican national dish. In the morning you slice up the leftover “food” and fry that in more coconut oil.
My sister once laughed about how horrified she was when a restaurateur in Greece poured a quarter cup of olive oil on her fried eggs thinking he was giving her a nice little gift. We have all been propagandized to think fat is so bad. The lady on the Internet thought I was insulting the food by describing it as “dripping in oil.”
No, no dear cranky Internet lady, I just don’t want my food dripping in cheap oil. The first thing I attended to in my Jamaican household was to ban all margarine and vegetable oil. There is plenty of coconut oil at the supermarket, albeit, alas, expensive. There are local market people who grate up coconuts and boil them and produce their own. This oil is cheaper than the highest quality extra-virgin variety at the supermarket.
I have been told by locals that cooking with coconut oil was pretty common, presumably before the big food companies started their propaganda and the market got flooded with “vegetable oil,” whatever that is. Very poor people didn’t bother with oil at all but just grated up a coconut. There is a dark story of fields and fields of coconut palms being killed off by aerial spraying, either by accident or by design. On top of that, a blight has been killing off the coastal coconut palms for the last few decades. Still, there is plenty of coconut available. I wish the government would subsidize coconut oil but then there’s lots of things I wish for.
I wish the chicken didn’t get fed
“boosters” so they are ready to eat in two weeks. I wish all the soup bases didn’t have monosodium glutamate. I wish the salt wasn’t supplemented with fluoride. I wish the farmers that trudge up to their fields past my yard every morning in gum boots with their machetes didn’t have canisters of weed killer strapped on their backs. I hope it is not in fact true that the largest KFC franchise in the world is in Kingston. I wish for Jamaicans, who are strong and healthy and smart, so far, and clean up gold medals in sports right and left, not to get sucked into the vortex of horrible American food and wind up as sick and depleted as we all are!
Thank goodness for the Rastas! They have it exactly right on a lot of topics. There is a reggae song that goes, “You know they are the healing of the nation….” And I think they are. Some are vegetarians while others eat meat, but the key point is that they want “ital,” meaning vital food. I wish we had some nice nature-based religion in my country rather than the current state religion of “science” with its hospitals as big as cathedrals and its doctors hurrying importantly around like holy priests in white coats and stethoscopes and the poor sick people pleased and relieved because they are sanctified by “scientific” rituals.

HEALTH IN UKRAINE
I want to commend you for the outstanding job the Foundation is doing and has done for all these years. I read each issue of Wise Traditions cover to cover, including the ads!
I did have a particular reaction to Michael Merrill’s article on traditional Ukrainian foods (Summer, 2019). I was struck by the contrast with the overall lack of health among its people. Ukrainians are dying at a higher rate than they are being born (State Statistical Service of Ukraine, 2016). The leading causes of death are heart disease (68 percent) and cancer (18 percent) attributed in large part to limited access to quality health care, alcoholism and, never forget, Chernobyl, the radioactive disaster of 1986 with its long-tailed half-life.
We can only imagine how conditions will worsen as western fast foods continue to displace traditional Ukrainian foods.
