Listening to Sally’s thoughts on why so many native Americans died of smallpox (bedbugs in the blankets & isolation of the victims rather than trying to help them and an unprepared immune system) I was reminded of the idea I got from reading thru these WAPF articles (or was it Adelle Davis) that even a small amount of poor food can wreck the progress of a person in recovery from illness or bad health. Was there something, grains or flour products, from ‘whiteman’s’ stores, or something else, that 2/3rds or more of native Americans were using? Was there some ‘food’ ftom the Frontier stores that most Natives traded for that harmed their gut, the seat of immunity?
Also was thinking that the so-called small pox epidemic that killed so many natives could have been an early example of biological warfare, even if it was only the acceptance of some items of junk food even in small amounts from frontier stores. If the Natives took the blankets why not also the food, probably even in some of the most remote areas?
I have been wondering about that for years & hadn’t heard of the bed bug problem & was thinking along other lines – the uneducated immunity line & the gut impaired from something line.
On iodine, just one thing. Iodine, as Lugol’s 5%, much more than 1mg/day is needed to counteract environmental poisons-toxins such as radiation, bromine-fluorine-chlorine in everything. But not without sufficient dietary minerals – which we all lack & can only come from seafoods. Lately I’m going to wildcaught seafoods & fish broth more & more since other quality animal products (fats, bones, organ meats) are so hard or impossible to come by & even then often deficient.
A local health food store owner who sells her own animal products (not grass fed) when I asked for fat, kidney, bones, organ meats, repeats that ‘the butcher’ throws all that away or some other excuse. And when asked about dairy from brown cows (Jersy, guernsey) hands me this Brown Cow brand yogurt. So wild caught fish for me.
Very few people can go to anywhere near the lengths I have gone over the last 48 years to learn about & find real foods. Few can regularly travel even 30 miles round trip to find a quality farmer. So what can they do? Wild caught seafood is right at hand even here in what I call Death Valley (State College) central Pennsylvania.
The same store owner I mentioned above, has the excuse that it is illegal to have the butcher give her the fat from her own animals. I also have been treated very coldly there after asking for chicken feet.
