JUST SAY NO TO COVID TESTING!
My daughter was tested in a clinic for flu last November. They did one of these deep nasal swabs. The test hurt like the dickens. She continued to have nasal pain and sinus issues, once waking up during the night due to the pain. We took her to a different urgent care two weeks later. The RN and doctor on staff both admitted that it was likely brought on by the nasal swab.
They didn’t diagnose a sinus infection, though my wife insisted it was. Instead, they prescribed Flonase and Claritin. We skipped the prescriptions. A week and half later, we took her to our GP who diagnosed a sinus infection. He prescribed an antibiotic. That helped some, but it didn’t clear up completely until mid-March of this year. After this experience, you couldn’t pay me to take one of those tests now.
CONTAGION OR 5G?
Why are the doctors and care givers also getting sick if this isn’t contagious? The explanation has to do with where hospitals are located in communities—usually in or near the center of population density. Where do they put cell phone towers? In the same places. Many hospitals have telecommunications antennae on their roofs or on the roofs of neighboring buildings. They installed 5G in the hospitals in Wuhan.
I am a physician who has practiced environmental medicine for more than twenty years. My wife and I developed some of the symptoms currently associated with the pandemic on returning to our top-floor apartment after being away for several weeks. This was before the first cases were reported in the U.S.
The next day we discovered a new microwave antennae array on the roof of our apartment.
We left the area, and thirty minutes outside of the city, all our symptoms resolved. We have moved.
My wife is from Milan, Lombardy, Italy. It was one of the first cities with 5G in Europe. She contacted her brother who still lives in Milan. He was having some of the same symptoms. He left the city to go to their place on the coast. His symptoms resolved.
As many have pointed out, there is a very strong correlation between 5G cities and Covid-19 hot spots. We have looked at carrier-specific maps from individual cell providers of current 5G availability to confirm this.
The interaction with oxygen decreases over distance from the emitter. Our experience suggests there may be a stronger correlation between symptoms and disease with how far away you are from a 5G cell phone antenna. Has anyone else observed this?
There are other environmental factors that contribute to our susceptibility to this new electrical energy, including pollution levels and glyphosate exposure. Here is a nice summary of this: jennifermargulis.net/glyphosate-and-covid-19-connection/

I ask myself, why has the world gone berserk over a virus? The answer is partly that allopathy is wrong in thinking that microbes cause disease. Allopathy is heartless—saying people shouldn’t socialize or meet each other during this “pandemic”—and is a bully, claiming they’re the only game in town. (There are lots of alternative medicines and therapies whose practitioners aren’t allowed to speak up.) Also, after two generations of anti-animal food propaganda, not only are most people eating badly, but maybe they’re not thinking straight.
Into this chaos comes Big Pharma. They want to inject twenty billion individuals—all people and pets; all farm, zoo and research animals; and many wild animals. But I think events will move too fast for them. Government will go bankrupt, the Internet will crash, and when they do, we will work with our neighbors, we will rediscover how to be social creatures—how to be fully human.
It’s objectionable that the media condemned, ridiculed and shamed President Trump’s legitimate ideas to look into “disinfectants” that might cleanse patients of viruses, such as heat, light, sunlight, ozone, hydrous chloride (HOCl) and UV. This character assassination has the same effect of a protective religious cult response to not disturb brainwashing propaganda. This “fake news” serves status quo misinformation.
Without open, transparent public discussion with full debate of the facts uncensored, problem-solving with rational, logical and rigorous scientific analysis is blocked from optimally determining our policies.
Trump specifically said he “didn’t know if it will work or not,” that he was “not a doctor,” but that he had “good ideas.”
Conspicuously missing is the search for a cure for sick and dying Covid-19 patients beyond patented drugs. Hundreds of studies show Americans deficient in nutrients required to optimize immune systems. Sunlight and optimal vitamin D improve immune system response. Heat kills Covid-19 over 150°F, suggesting saunas may help. Bleach-like chloride creates FDA-approved HOCl that disinfects hospital and restaurant viruses, including on fish: it is under safety study for spraying in eyes, nose and mouth. As for UV injection, it was safely used on Americans prior to antibiotic development. (See ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6122858/.)
It is unacceptable for any media to block and condemn ideas on the table that might stop a Covid-19 patient from suffering and dying every ninety seconds. Mature problem-solving requires open-minded transparent dialogue without vilification and shaming. Transparently open, peer-reviewed science must be discussed fairly and equally without unfair power and control mechanisms exerted to block scientific discussion from being heard by everyone. Scientific analysis requires that all possible factors remain on the table to be rigorously analyzed until proven unsafe by measurable facts. Anything less is anti-science and irrational.
Our anti-science culture has caused thirty years of accelerated poisoning of our air, water, soil and food—and also our bodies. Every baby is born with over three hundred man-made toxins that do not belong there. Over half our children have one or more chronic diagnoses. The widespread environmental movement repeatedly asked for regulation, but corporate profits poison us. Federal energy laws removing local and state control over siting of pipelines, centralized electrical grids and Wi-Fi EMF and microwave towers must be repealed as they have removed our self-determination to protect our health and safety, and this has made us increasingly vulnerable to Covid-19.
If the media want to attack Trump politically, they should not do it when he is trying to help dying people, but when he works against our safety and health. We must end shaming, blaming and vilifying. We must demand full transparent and open debate of scientific facts and rigorous analysis for all matters that affect our health and safety.

There’s a lot we don’t know about Covid-19, but this is what we do know. Old, obese, diseased people who don’t eat well (nursing home food) on a lot of meds (especially statins to lower cholesterol) and who are pressured (forced?) to get vaccines (flu, pneumonia, shingles, etc.) have a higher death rate than young healthy people.
In Pennsylvania, the average age of death from Covid-19 is seventy-nine years and 67.9 percent were in nursing homes. These rates are higher in other states. Nearly all had comorbidities—we don’t have a breakdown. We don’t know how many had shots; we don’t know how many were on lots of meds (polypharmacy) including statin drugs, which damage immunity. Probably most of them. Low cholesterol is associated with increased death.
Why deaths in nursing homes? It’s called iatrogenic disease. An iatrogenic illness or iatrogenic death is a disease or death that was caused by medical care. Is that common? Yes, very common. It is estimated that well over one hundred thousand Americans die each year as a result of taking prescribed medications (drug overdose is in another category). That doesn’t include medical malpractice, deaths from hospital infections (over one hundred thousand) and other causes.
Flu vaccine increases coronavirus risk. Virtually everyone who enters a hospital is given a flu shot. Research shows that the flu vaccine increases coronavirus risk 36 percent.
Another contributor to the deaths is the social isolation. Elderly people were refused visitors on Mother’s Day! Cruel is the only way to describe such a restriction. People in hospitals couldn’t have a loved one hold their hand. Without a doubt, social isolation is killing far more people than it was supposed to save (which is actually zero).
It’s entirely possible that deaths from Covid-19 are not due to the flu, but are due to the medications and vaccines the sick elderly in nursing homes are submitted to. Plus consider the poor quality of the food and social isolation.
I have visited people in nursing homes and similar places. I worked in one years ago. The inmates are truly over-medicated, undernourished, sad, lonely and depressed. Many lose their minds while there.
But don’t hold your breath waiting for that to be revealed, or even investigated. The medical profession’s number one purpose is not to help the sick, it’s to maintain its control and status.
I’m not referring to individual doctors and nurses—many are indeed caring professionals. But they are caught in a corrupt system with no way out!
This is nothing new; the medical profession never accepts responsibility for its mistakes. They even refused to admit that the bloodletting they practiced was catastrophic—until about a hundred years had gone by.
During the 1918 Spanish flu we saw the same pattern, only this time it only took about eighty years before it was admitted that it was medical care that killed so many people—mainly huge doses of aspirin. But don’t hold your breath waiting for an apology or even overall acknowledgment from the medical profession. During the Spanish flu, the mortality (death) rate in U.S. military hospitals was 36 percent! Mortality in U.S. medical hospitals was 30-40 percent! Even more appalling, the mortality rate in medical hospitals in New York City was reported to be 68 percent! In contrast, the death rate of those flu patients under chiropractic care was reported at .006 percent and .013 percent. Why was that? The answer may surprise you: it has to do with philosophy, the difference between suppressive and expressive systems and iatrogenic illness.

HEALTHY FOOD IN ITALY
It is getting more diffiult to eat nutrient-foods in Italy. To eat good quality organic, grass-fed meat I used to order it in The Netherlands, but they do not ship to Italy so I took a flight to Brussels, had the meat shipped there and came back with a two-month supply of beef and cheese.
Lately I found a few amazing farmers that have the best clean meat from animals grazing freely or having hay, no grains, antibiotics and hormones at all. This is a very good sign that something is moving in the right direction, and my life of trying to eat healthy meat and not being vegetarian is a bit easier.
Raw milk is easily available in Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany and France; but not in Italy. Are we EU? Since I cannot have raw, organic, grass-fed milk, possibly A2, I don’t have milk when in Italy, just some heavy cream and goat kefir. I also buy a large quantity of organic raw butter in Belgium. It is impossible to find organic grass-fed raw butter in Italy.
Googling latte crudo (“raw milk”), the website milkmaps.comsays that more than nine hundred raw milk self-service machines are in Italy. However, in my province, out of fifteen listed on the website, some are closed and most of the others are converted into pasteurized milk, not even organic. I found just one that still provides raw milk. The same thing is true for a nearby province. The ones I could personally check are converted to pasteurized milk. One farmer explained that it is too much effort and expense to keep raw milk available in the machines. I cannot tell whether this is true all over Italy, but my investigation so far is disappointing and shows that the website is obsolete.
Some good news is that one organic farm welcomed me to purchase organic raw milk when they milk the cows in the afternoon, but it is not 100 percent grass-fed. They think the only countries where cows are completely grass-fed are Africa and India, but that those cows are often weak and underweight. Some farms do limit the grains to seven kilograms. More good news is a new certification, a 100 percent latte fieno STG specialità tradizionale garantita, which guarantees at least 75 percent grass feeding (pasture or hay).
I am afraid after covid-19 and the general panic for viruses and bacterias raw milk will be banned even more tightly, instead of seeing it as an immune strengthener. It’s the same thing with chickens and eggs and soy. In Italy chickens are fed soy and corn, no matter if organic, pastured and open air.
People think they get their bad cholesterol (does it exist?) or high triglycerides from butter hidden in bakery products, but this is not true. Butter is rarely used because it is too expensive for processed food. If someone produces food with olive oil, they will sell a lot (hopefully someone questions the quality of the olive oil).
No one seems to know we should cook and especially fry in animal fat and have the EVOO oil raw. Omega 6 inflammation caused by cooking with vegetable oils and eating processed food loaded with vegetable oils is huge. I wish they used olive oil. Coconut oil is not popular since it is a saturated fat.
Red meat is considered a danger, as are fats, especially butter. People will eat red meat, but always with guilt and with no concern for how the animal is raised. One example is meat imported from South America; no one seems to care about the GMO soy those animals are fed. On the contrary, there is a lot of talk about the possible treaty between the U.S. and E.U. for allowing more U.S. meat to come into Europe. U.S. meat is seen as dangerous, although when living in the U.S., I purchased meat from ethically raised animals, 100 percent organic grass-fed. Most Italians believe that in Argentina and Brazil, cows graze in the Pampas instead of eating GMO soy and corn in cattle feedlots. Italy has a great reputation for food quality, but no one seems to question whether it is still like that.
We consume large quantities of salumi, not thinking it is red meat but with additives and preservatives unless you know where to buy quality pork products. For example, where I live, there is a farm raising pigs and producing salumi higher than organic in quality (il Grifo, Reggio Emilia). But this is the exception.
I wish more Italians would return to eating traditional, healthy foods; I am therefore sending this “Mayday, Mayday” to you. Perhaps you can help us to spread knowledge and overcome the cliché of the Mediterranean diet—not the worst diet but not sufficiently rich in nutrient-dense foods to nourish our brain, sustain and balance our hormones and keep our gut healthy.
Is there a way to educate and engage family doctors or having an authentic, organic, educazione alimentare in schools, in order to help us and the future generations?
Reggio nell’Emilia, Italy
I would like to express my gratitude to the Weston A. Price Foundation for opening my mind to wisdom and truth about healthy food.
To share my story, I was the typical gal who believed that butter, cream, cheese were to be avoided if I wanted to be healthy and thin. I was not quite vegetarian but eating an almost vegetarian diet, with just a little meat with my rice and vegetables with as little fat and salt as possible. I consumed lowfat dairy sparingly and later on drank alternative dairy products (such as nut milks). On the outside, I was on the slender siee and looked healthy. So I couldn’t understand why I couldn’t get pregnant.
I had been married to my husband for about four years and we had been trying to have a child since 2014. I went off the birth control pill thinking I would become pregnant the next month. Nothing happened. I became more careful about my diet and exercise (more fruits and vegs, as little fat as possible, more exercise). Nothing happened. I started going through Google and trying out various supplements and herbal teas and any food that would help me get pregnant (like Brazil nuts, but not prepared as crispy nuts). Nothing happened. I went in for a fertility check. The doctors said there might be some minor clogging in one of my fallopian tubes, but it was very minor and should not be the reason why I was not getting pregnant. We tried intrauterine insemination (IUI). Didn’t work. Then did IVF. I got six viable embryos. First (fresh) embryo transfer failed. Second (frozen) embryo transfer failed.
While taking a break I somehow got pregnant naturally. We were ecstatic. But it turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy (twins at that) that I had to terminate. This led me into deep depression. During my stay at the hospital after surgery, I turned on YouTube to get my mind off the ectopic pregnancy. I believe that by the grace of God, somehow the video of Sally Fallon Morell’s Seminar on Traditional Diets (youtu.be/ LJS4yKhJcu4) got turned on my YouTube stream. I had intended to just leave this video on in the background without actively listening to it. However, I found myself not able to sleep and getting more and more interested in listening to the video. What Sally was saying about animal fats and the traditional nourishing diet just sounded right. The diets (South Beach, Atkins, paleo) that were popular seemed to have to do a lot of persuading to validate their diet. The concept of traditional diets was simple to understand and seemed natural to me.
After my release from the hospital, I started to eat butter and full-fat dairy. I found the best dairy I could in Japan (and was able to find raw milk at the end). I have never bought vegetable oil since then. I started making my own fermented foods and bone broth and incorporated them into my diet. During the process various things happened.
1. I stopped being cold all the time: My hands and feet were cold always, but especially in the winter. I just thought this was due to aging and genetics.
2. I didn’t gain weight: My biggest fear about this diet was gaining weight. I didn’t lose weight, but I didn’t gain any extra despite the fact of using butter and consuming full-fat dairy.
3. I found a new interest in traditional Asian (especially Korean) food: I’m ethnically Korean and grew up eating Korean food. However, over time my parents while living in the U.S. had succumbed to the lowfat, low-cholesterol diet and I had never questioned it. I ate Korean food, but mostly purchased (semi) prepared food as I always thought Korean food took too much time and energy to cook. Through the process of eating the Weston A. Price way, I discovered the wisdom of traditional Korean foods and started making them at home.
4. I got pregnant: although I was not able to get pregnant naturally, my third embryo transfer in 2018 was a success and my daughter was born in 2019. She was born a bit small but healthy and is currently thriving.
There is still a part of me that wishes that I had known and followed the Weston A. Price food way before conceiving my daughter. However, I try not to dwell on this and consider myself extremely blessed to have learned about these nourishing traditions during my pregnancy and will continue to eat this way for the rest of my life.
I can now only hope that the rest of my family (parents, brother and sister) will also be convinced enough to change their current modern diet to the nourishing traditional diet. I’m trying to show by example as I know that changing one’s diet seems almost as difficult as changing religion.
Thank you for all your work. You’ve changed my life and I feel confident that I can lay the best foundation possible for my daughter’s future thanks to the work of your foundation.
I am renewing my lapsed membership. I appreciate all of the work you do for healthy food, healthy farms and healing advocacy. I value the weekly podcasts; they are well done and an easy way to share information with others. I especially appreciate all the sane information you are giving for immune health during this current climate of hysteria. I am especially thankful for all my local food sources you have helped me find in years past so that I don’t have to go face the empty shelves and fearful people at the grocery chains.
