A SENSE OF COMMUNITY
I am writing to extend my love and appreciation for Hilda Gore and the WAPF family. Listening to the Wise Traditions podcast has been a beacon of light for me, specifically during Covid-19.
In the face of misinformation and fearmongering, the podcast has stood its ground and held firm in its mission to spread faith, love, inspiration and real education about the full potential of our bodies when properly cared for. The Wise Traditions family provides its listeners with real scientific information (not paid science!), hope for a brighter tomorrow, love and, most importantly, a sense of community.
Thank you for spreading your light and sharing such important information with the world! Thank you for providing the tools I need to become the best version of myself. Thank you for helping restore my faith in humanity and science. Most importantly, thank you for reminding me that I am not alone and that together, we can do anything.

PUSHING FOR VACCINES
I’ve just gotten off the phone with my daughter. Her husband took their two kids to a pediatrician because our granddaughter needed an exam for a dental procedure. She knows not to take them to a regular doc instead of the good, non-pushy doctor we’ve used in the past, but because their insurance covers it, they went the “normal” route.
The doctor gave them a super hard time for not vaccinating and not bring ing them in for regular checkups. He checked their genitals-ugh! He pushed and pushed for the vaccines. Needless to say, our daughter is very upset.
She looked at the vaccine schedule. It includes vaccines for HPV and of course HepB, which are sexually transmittable diseases (as well as for IV drug use). They’re supposed to have these at two years old. This is total insanity. What are they trying to do to our kids?
Oh, and the icing on the cake? The youngest is due for an autism exam in six months. Sheesh, it’s almost as if they “know” this crazy vaccine schedule is going to increase autism rates.
Besides all of the above, the children are in the lower percentile in weight, so considered underweight. This is of course because they are not fat, like so many kids today are. They eat real food and are super-active, but not skinny by any means!
From now on the kids only go to the country doctor who understands that children and parents don’t need this garbage. But my big concern is that they will be turned in for child neglect. This happened years ago when our own kids were much younger and to another family from our local chapter. Scary!

QUININE AND ZINC
I’ve been using tonic water—a source of quinine, the granddaddy of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ)—and smoked oysters (source of zinc) this summer to fix some health problems. I’m not particularly interested in going to a doctor to get some of the disputed HCQ, but I figured if I could get some foods with quinine and zinc, I might be able to use those instead.
The first thing I fixed was a weird feeling I had after walking through my office suite while everyone else was working from home. No one was at my office and there were some disinfectant boxes running. (Later on, I heard they were Senexis boxes that put out UV light and “dry hydrogen peroxide” into the air.) There were four boxes. During the lockdown, I had to return to my office to perform a task that took only about ten to fifteen minutes. I closed myself in my office away from the disinfectant boxes to do the task.
After I had returned home and was working on my computer, I started feeling disconnected and lethargic. It was weird and unlike anything I had ever experienced. I wondered whether the feeling was anything like people feel when they get diagnosed with Covid. I had stockpiled some little cans of tonic water and tins of smoked oysters in case I thought I might need something like HCQ and zinc. I also had a bottle of a zinc and copper supplement in capsules. On the chance that I had breathed in some of the disinfectant and had damaged my lungs, I drank a can of tonic water and took a little supplement that had zinc and copper in it. (All my oysters were at my office, not at home.) In about ten minutes I felt fine again.
Another thing I fixed was a migraine aura. I never have migraine headaches, but if I’m burning the candle at both ends, working too much and sleeping too little, I might have a migraine aura about once a year. I usually don’t notice them until they’re shiny crescent shapes disrupting my field of vision. I usually have to lie down for thirty to forty minutes, until they get large enough to get to the outside edge of my field of vision so I can see to work again. Well this time I noticed it at the beginning, when it was like a tiny Vienna sausage shape in the middle of my field of vision. I had so much work to do that I really didn’t want to lie down and wait it out. I have thought that migraines have an electrical component, and it occurred to me that quinine and zinc might help fix the problem. So I drank a can of tonic water and ate a tin of smoked oysters. In about five to ten minutes, not only had the migraine aura gone away, but my energy level was nice and high (not depleted as it usually is when I’m overworked and sleep-deprived).
The third thing I fixed was a feeling of anxiety. I had been asked to come up with a list of emails of some of our people, so they could be emailed about getting tested for Covid. I knew there was a possibility that I might get caught in that net, and I really don’t want to be tested because I don’t trust the tests and don’t want to be a target for further “treatment” or restriction from working. I started feeling so anxious about that possibility that I couldn’t work. Since Dr. Hamer says the cause of influenza symptoms is fear, or fright fear, or death fright fear, and I consider Covid to be caused primarily by fear, I figured it might help to take my tonic water and oysters. After I ate them, it was (again!) only five to ten minutes before the fear was gone and I could get on with my day.
I have been curious lately about how our bodies use electricity, and about Dr. Kaufman’s and Dr. Cowan’s discussion of how 5G (and probably the enhanced 4G) harm our bodies, causing physical symptoms. In fact, I have wondered whether the lockdown was not partially so the installation of 5G equipment could proceed without interference.
Another thing about zinc: I have been reading a book called Breakthrough! by Jon Queijo. In Chapter 5 (“I’m Looking Through You: The Discovery of X-Rays”), he mentions that Wilhelm Roentgen suspected that frequent exposure to X-rays could be harmful to living tissue, so he did his experiments in a zinc box. Some other research helpers had to have amputations done because of the damage to their hands and arms.
Since zinc and copper are supposed to be kept in balance in the body, I have wondered whether it is because copper is such an excellent conductor of electricity, while zinc may counteract that. I will have to keep reading because I don’t know much about it.
Of course, there’s also the fact that zinc is depleted by stress! When I look in the eyes of many people, I see much fear and anxiety in some. It doesn’t surprise me that giving zinc and an ionophore (ion carrier) like HCQ or quinine is so effective, especially if they get it at the first sign of illness. I know some people are taking quinine and zinc, vitamin D, vitamin C and some other supplements as prophylactics. I am only taking the quinine and zinc (in the form of smoked oysters or the zinc-copper supplement) when I am so stressed that I am noticing physical symptoms. I do also take cod liver oil and a variety of probiotics/prebiotics on a daily basis. Some doctors advise their patients to take vitamin D and probiotics regularly if they want to avoid the seasonal flu.
I also am very curious about how the tonic water and zinc have yielded such fast results when I have used them!
Aside from that, I have seen a brief comment about quinine, chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, and how they serve as an ionophore for the zinc. The commenter said that zinc and our cells have the same charge, while the ionophores have the opposite charge, so that’s how it’s possible for the zinc to enter the cells and help heal things, or at least prevent further damage.
I had an ancestor who was a country doctor during the Spanish Flu epidemic. They say he treated more than seventy patients for it and lost none of them! I wish I knew what he did to help them. I heard that a medical textbook was published in the 1920s that included a discussion of how some doctors had used quinine to treat their Spanish Flu patients.
Editor’s Response: Quinine water usually contains high fructose corn syrup and other additives. A better choice is quinine herbal drops added to sparkling water. Desiccated oyster capsules will work for those who don’t like the taste of oysters.
I believe I have made a new discovery about pathogenicity from the novel SARS-CoV-2. Very clear research, backed by extensive documentation, demonstrates that SARS-CoV-2 directly affects the ability of scientists to do arithmetic. This is probably neurologically based.
I took a nerve tonic and decided to do the arithmetic for the new study showing 95 percent efficacy of the new Moderna vaccine. Here are the numbers, even though the paper is unpublished, so these are not exact:
There were about twenty-eight thousand people in the trial, approximately fourteen thousand in each group.
In the Moderna trial, on day fourteen, ninety people in the “placebo” arm had symptoms of “Covid,” while the number in the vaccine arm was five. This means that 0.6 percent (90 divided by 14,000) of the placebo “got Covid,” while 0.04 percent (5 divided by 14,000) in the vaccine arm “got Covid.”
People unaffected by arithmetic deficiency would say this is a reduction of 0.06 percent—nothing to get excited about. But the researchers used the magic of “risk reduction,” which ignores the sample size in order to exaggerate the benefits. Thus 90 + 5 = 95 and 90 is 94.5 percent of 95. This is called the “efficacy.” But it is a biologically meaningless number for if the same number of people got Covid out of one hundred million, you get the same result—this is the magic of “risk reduction”!
Then to complete the fraud they report side effects in the vaccine arm as around 3 percent—which by the way are the same symptoms as reported for “Covid.” This means about 420 out of 14,000 people in the vaccine arm got side effects—that is “Covid”—versus none in the placebo. They magically report this not as a 400 percent increase in side effects but as an insignificant 2.6 percent increase.
The reality is all you can say from this trial is that if you take the vaccine you have a 3 percent chance (420 side effects plus five cases out of 14,000) of illness in the two-week period versus a 0.6 percent chance (90 cases plus 0 side effects out of 14,000) of illness in the placebo group.
My guess is that arithmetic deficit is an incurable side effect of Covid hysteria, particularly if you are a member of the medical profession.
Actually the trials on the vaccines have nothing to do with a virus, immunity or transmission of a disease; they were only studying the numbers of people who get “Covid, “ that is, show “symptoms,” so these were drug trials, not vaccine trials.

PROTESTS IN GERMANY
There is a huge movement against the unspeakable and unseen crimes happening all over the world. People are demonstrating throughout Germany every day by the thousands, with numbers gaining daily. Information about the truth is now spreading like a wild fire and even the media are starting to show the truth here and there. Censorship in Germany is the worst in the world, even topping China; for example, one hundred fifty thousand German YouTube videos being deleted every day!
THE LEPROSY CONTAGION MYTH
In light of the question about illnesses being contagious, I was reflecting on an experience I had in the late 1980s. I lived in Louisiana and volunteered at a hospital in Carville, which was started in 1894 as the first U.S. inpatient hospital for those with leprosy. It closed in 1999.
Often people were brought there and left by their families for lifetime quarantine. The site had many buildings and there were enclosed walkways to get from one building to the other. I was told patients had to walk in those walkways, not outside, so they would not risk infecting others. By the time I was there, they said we could interact without fear of contagion because they now had a medication for the disease (not a vaccine). But in the past, these people were feared as ‘biohazards’ and were not allowed to leave except for short periods; many tried to escape but were captured and returned. For a long time, they were not allowed to marry for fear of infecting the children, but that restriction was finally lifted. Many changed their names out of shame and fear for their family’s reputation.
The hospital was run by Catholic sisters for a long time, and I learned that not one of them was ever “infected.” At the time, this seemed like a miracle. They also said that researchers could not infect normal lab animals but they finally could infect the armadillo—plentiful in Louisiana. All of it seemed sad and puzzling.
A friend organized a boat trip up the Mississippi River for some patients and others. Those with leprosy begged us not to tell anyone where they were from. They were thrilled to be out in normal life and accepted.
I met a woman patient from South America who had been sent there. She said that it took a long time but she was finally able to marry another patient. Her husband wrote a heartbreaking biography in which he explained that he grew up in a small mountain community. As a boy he started getting odd nerve twitches where he would swat at a bug on his leg only to realize there was no bug. He had other symptoms that puzzled the local doctors who eventually feared it was leprosy. The family, community and doctors were shocked because they knew the boy had never been exposed to leprosy. Unfortunately, the boy was sent to Carville where he lived his life, abandoned by his family.
For centuries leprosy has provoked fear as a terrible, contagious disease. But in light of the new ideas about what causes disease, I am seeing leprosy in a new light. For countless people suffering with leprosy over time, maybe their plight could have been avoided had researchers been willing to ask—what if the cause is not what we think? What if it is not contagious? What other possible causes are there?

Editor’s Response: The symptoms of leprosy (severe, disfiguring skin sores and nerve damage in the arms, legs and skin areas) are similar to certain symptoms of B vitamin deficiencies, which were especially common in the South in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
I just went on your site for the first time in many years to read up on making yogurt with raw milk. Finding your comment on your homepage about this current “respiratory illness outbreak” was refreshing. I have been so discouraged at the continuous alerts and messages on websites and have not seen anything that has sounded positive or as though we could actually help ourselves be healthy in order to protect ourselves from illnesses. I just wanted to say thanks for putting up a nicely worded and logical statement about “coronavirus” on your website.
THE NEW ETIQUETTE
I was at the Polyface conference November 16, when the Weston A. Price Foundation launched the New Etiquette. The group was asked to turn their cell phones to airplane mode. As an electromagnetic-sensitive individual suffering from a limbic system disorder, I felt very excited when I heard this announcement. Even small amounts of non-native man-made electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) have a cumulative effect on me throughout the day. Often, when I’m around EMFs, I’ll feel symptoms of pain, exhaustion and disorientation, and my digestive system and heart suffer greatly.
I carry a Trifield meter (trifield. com) with me in my travels, and I had my meter with me that day. I measured the farm readings a few times in the morning—first upon my arrival, and then after the group was asked to turn their cell phones to airplane mode. I was not anticipating the New Etiquette announcement, and both my friend (who saw my readings) and I were amazed at the before-and-after difference. If only I had captured my results in photographs to show you!
In the hoop house the morning of the Polyface conference, my meter’s RF readings were peaking at 0.120 mW/m². Typically, in rural settings at least 1.5 miles from cell towers, I’ve seen the meters peak at 0.040-0.060 mW/m²—so I thought this reading was high, especially for an open-air setting at a farm! When I entered Joel’s farm, my meter was peaking at 0.020. When I sat down in the hoop house (further away from the crowd, on the far end), that reading went way up, six times higher.
At first I didn’t understand the reason for the big peak in my readings, and then I realized it could be from all the cell phones carried by folks in semi-close quarters. When I noticed the peak in the meter reading, I felt surprised and nervous, because I was afraid of feeling sick. Because my initial readings at the farm were low, I had not thought to bring along my various helps, which mitigate negative effects on my body within “hot zones.” I was so relieved when the audience was asked to turn their phones to airplane mode, and I felt shocked and amazed when my Trifield meter RF reading went all the way down to 0.000, then stayed below 0.020 for the remainder of the morning. And I felt great.
For perspective, the meter can peak all the way up to 8.000 + (and max out with an error message!) when I am driving through towns. I haven’t measured any cities (because I no longer can tolerate even going near them).

I have a suggestion that might help all of us minimize our exposure to EMFs. Using an EMF meter I found that my laptop tested in the red for high EMFs even though we have no WiFi in the house. But the laptop was still searching for wireless. I went to Settings and turned off WiFi altogether, and also turned off Bluetooth, and tested again. This time the laptop was in the green or safe level.
NO LONGER VEGAN
I was a vegan for over ten years. My daughter, without pressuring me whatsoever, was sharing with me her attempts to heal her gut with the GAPS diet. She told me some things she learned from the Wise Traditions podcast, and I thought it sounded quite interesting. So I tuned in to one episode and it led to another, then another. . . a few weeks later, here I am no longer a vegan! I slowly started with eggs, butter and cheese and have been introducing pasture-raised meat! I never ever believed I would ever go back to eating animal products!
I can’t believe I fell into the lies that animal products were the cause of illnesses, cancer, etc. I am amazed at everything that I have learned from the Wise Traditions podcast. It has changed my life immensely! I thank God for opening my eyes to the truth and also for my daughter and her example. It all makes sense.

AUTISM AND THE FUTURE
I heard Dr. Andrew Wakefield today at the courthouse in Fairfax, Virginia, speaking to a group called Virginians for Health Freedom. He’s traveling the country on behalf of children. About the election he says this is a one-issue election; vote for those candidates that support freedom. The one issue you must vote for is the future of your children and grandchildren. About autism he says it is still rising and if it continues at this rate, by the year 2030, autism will affect one in two children.
He asked for the veterans to stand up and said that if we don’t stop autism, by 2030 we will not have a military. We will not have a country. We will have half of our people with autism and the other half will be caretakers.
LOOMING MEAT CRISIS
My farmer delivered my fall meat order this morning and we had a short chat. There is so much to learn and the rules are constantly changing. She said it is challenging here (in Ontario, Canada) to get a butcher to work with the small, independent farmers. She has just made a reservation for next autumn’s butchering for piglets that she doesn’t even own yet.
It’s also difficult for independent farmers to get a vet to come to the farm. (It’s more profitable for vets to be on hire for the CAFO operations.) Pigs on the CAFO farms do not have any access to open air, not even a hole the size of a snout, due to the fear of birds contaminating the herd. There are even rules about the fans that circulate the air (in case a bird should sneak in there). But the animals are not considered “in distress” or “treated cruelly” because, hey, there’s a vet on staff you know.
London, Ontario, Canada
I have learned from personal experience that with Lyme, it’s the terrain and not the “germ”; the spirochete is not the cause. Ten years ago, I pulled off a deer tick. I developed the bullseye rash, went on a course of antibiotics and assumed that was that. I had thought it was the bacteria that “infected” me.
Fast-forward to five years ago when I had all the poisonous mercury amalgam removed from my teeth. Now I actually know what happened. The tick probably did transfer the bacteria. However, bacteria are not pathogens. They are the clean-up crew. They eat waste, venom, metals and rot—all unhealthy substances—all for excretion! I still had the highly toxic mercury in my system at the time, ten years ago. Lyme spirochete bacteria “eat mercury like candy.” Chronic Lyme sets in when a dangerous condition in the host, like mercury blight, is persistently present and continues to go unresolved. Of course, there are other things besides mercury that cause this trouble.
The bacteria were there to begin remediating all the mercury in my system. They were there to help. But if there is no resolution to the underlying poisoning, the clean-up crew can eventually cause disease themselves.
Unfortunately, with chronic mercury assault, the bacteria cannot keep up with mercury excretion. I was “lucky” in that, though I did not know yet about the horrible condition of my teeth, the antibiotics killed off the bacteria. I got a reprieve.
Five years ago, when I learned of the dangers of mercury amalgam, I was livid that I had not heard about this much sooner. As a chemist, it was an ah-ha moment about how bad this stuff is, but also much anger at the criminal American Dental Association, which touts and promotes this menace.
Thank you so much for all you do! I have been a member for twenty years and I can’t tell you how much your organization has meant to my family and me. Some of the information in the journal has literally been life-saving!
It is so important to have dissenting voices in these crazy times. It seems like everyone is yelling, yet WAPF goes about its business in its quiet way, telling the truth. I’m a big reader but not everyone is, so the podcasts help fill that gap. I often listen to them while I’m cooking or washing dishes. Hilda is an outstanding host and she is always so warm and inspiring, while getting to the core of the issues. She never fails to make her guests and her audience feel welcome despite the sometimes controversial topics.
Let’s stay the course. Each time we have a crisis (9/11 or this pandemic, for example) our government does not hesitate to take our rights away. Once those rights are gone, it’s unlikely we will get them back. I always remind my kids of Benjamin Franklin’s famous quote: “Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.”
Let’s all be brave! Let’s work hard to preserve our rights to farm, to have access to clean healthful food, to make decisions about health for our families, to have access to natural “alternative” healthcare, and our right to speak out against what is wrong with the world.
FALLACY AND REALITY
California has announced a statewide initiative to phase out or ban the sale of internal combustion engines by 2035 and replace them with electric vehicles powered by solar- and wind-generated electricity. In his Executive Order N-79-20, California Governor Newsom is following the global environmental playbook and throwing in a little coronavirus justification to boot. The third paragraph of the order states, “Whereas the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the entire transportation sector, bringing a sharp decline in demand for fuels and adversely impacting public transportation. . .” Aside from its human health effects and societal disruption capabilities, the Covid-19 virus is most cunning. Unbeknownst to us, it also infects machines and as such provides political justification for remaking California’s transportation sector.
Here’s the question: can California support the transition to an all-electric fleet of light duty vehicles (LDVs) using only solar- and wind-generated electricity? Assuming that California would need 15,000,000 LDVs, requiring 300 watt-hours per vehicle per mile for an average of 10,000 miles per year, each vehicle would need 3 megawatt-hours per year.
Using current technologies, you need 7.5 acres of land to produce 1 megawatt-hour from solar and 5 acres of land to produce 1 megawatt-hour from wind turbines for an average of 6.5 acres for 1 megawatt-hour from solar and wind, or .001 square miles per megawatt-hour.
At 3 megawatt-hours per year, the electricity needed for 15,000,000 light vehicles is 45,000,000 megawatt-hours per year, thus requiring 45,000 square miles. The land area of California is 163,696 square miles so the conversion to all-electric vehicles would require 27.5 percent of California’s total land area.
In addition to the transition to all-electric vehicles, California has competing initiatives to phase out natural gas and nuclear power generation.
Currently, California generates 102,000,000 megawatt-hours from natural gas and nuclear. All told, California would need something on the order of 150,000,000 megawatt-hours of new solar and wind generation capacity to support these dual initiatives over the next fifteen or twenty years, requiring 150,000 square miles of land area or 91.5 percent of California’s total surface area!
Never mind the fact that California’s forty million citizens need somewhere to live and that large swaths of the state are either desert or mountains and impractical for large scale commercial electric utility generation. (Desert is good for solar, but it tends to be remote from the grid and lacks transmission lines and substations needed to support large scale commercial electric development.) Maybe the yet unannounced secret plan on the part of California is to annex Nevada and Alaska to support their all-renewable electricity generation cloud dream.
Actually, California knows that its grand plans are impractical. If you visit the website poweringcalifornia. com, they ask the same question: how much land would it take for California’s utilities to go all renewable? This is even before the additional electricity demand from an all-electric vehicle fleet. The state’s own conclusion: “The Manhattan Institute, a policy research think tank, took a deep-dive look at the math behind the 100%-renewable-energy concept and found it unrealistic, particularly when it comes to land use.”
On the upside, California wouldn’t have to worry about wildfires in this future state as a key ingredient for wildfires, namely vegetation, would be totally eradicated to support wind and solar farms.
I wanted to drop you a note to say a hearty thank you for covering the issue of the horrible, unsafe, unethical practice of using aborted fetal tissue in vaccine development and research (Wise Traditions, Fall 2020). I have always appreciated the foundation’s willingness to take a strong stance on important health issues, and this is one for which so few people understand the implications. Kendall Nelson’s article was very well written and lays out an excellent case for the health hazards of this horrific practice, in addition to the reasons so many find it morally abhorrent.
