Welcome to my Nourishing Traditions blog!
I am looking forward to this opportunity to write about my favorite subject: healthy food! I’ll be doing lots of updates on the science of nutrition, traditional diets, raw milk, meal planning and interesting recipes. I’ll be discussing the need for healthy animal fats in the diet–for everything from cellular energy, to protection against cancer, to an upbeat, happy mood. My new blog also gives me the opportunity to write about other subjects that interest me, including farming and gardening, children, science, music, language and literature (especially Shakespeare). I am looking forward to this new venture, and especially getting your comments and feedback. Coming soon: a series on genuine Southern cooking and a series on fermented foods from around the world–plus my heretical thoughts on feeding babies. Stay tuned!

Last year the Weston A. Price Foundation
launched its 50% Campaign, urging consumers to purchase at least 50 percent of their food directly from farmers and artisan processors. This helps build a local food system, creates food security and ensures prosperity for our farmers. But there are many other reasons to avoid industrial meat and obtain the animal products you need directly from a farmer you know.Read More
In response to my blog “Is Coronavirus Contagious?
” and the book The Contagion Myth
, in which my co-author, Tom Cowan, and I have explained that so-called “viruses” are actually helpful exosomes, which do not cause disease, but which the body makes in response to toxins, starvation and injury—in response to these surprising claims, I received a chiding email.Read More
Our book, The Contagion Myth
, is now available (banned on Amazon but sold on other outlets
) and has already generated dozens of comments, many of them challenging our contention that the corona “virus” does not exist and that the illness attributed to this virus is not contagious—one referred to our book as a fairy tale!Read More
As many of you know, the problem of toxic soy ingredients in prison diets has concerned the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) for many years. It began in 2003 in the Illinois prisons when Blagojevich became governor. He repaid his political debts to Archer Daniel Midlands (ADM) by eliminating meat from the prison diet and replacing it with soy—soy nuggets, soy patties, soy sausage and even soy flour in the baked goods. Since an Internet search for “soy dangers” immediately brings up the Weston A. Price Foundation, we soon began receiving desperate pleas for help from Illinois prisoners.Read More
Anthrax is an infection caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis. It can occur in four forms: skin, lungs, intestinal and injection. Symptoms begin between one day to over two months after the infection is contracted. The skin form presents as a characteristic black blister.Read More
Throughout history, philosophers believed that comets were “harbingers of doom, disease, and death, infecting men with a blood lust to war, contaminating crops, and dispersing disease and plague.”Read More
This is the sixty-four-thousand-dollar question. The premise that coronavirus is highly contagious and can cause disease provides the justification for putting entire nations on lockdown, destroying the global economy and throwing hundreds of thousands out of work. But is it contagious? Does it even cause disease?Read More
My last post
elicited a lot of comments, including some that raised legitimate criticisms, which I hope to address in this follow-on.Read More
With coronavirus dominating the news, we’ve seen a contagion of conspiracy theories—coronavirus is a bio-weapon invented by the Chinese, coronavirus lingers on paper money so governments are going to decree a cashless society, coronavirus has given the Italian and Iranian governments an excuse to crack down on dissidents, coronavirus is caused by 5G, which was rolled out in Wuhan—and outbreaks of worst-case-scenario thinking, like the claim that coronavirus will infect 80 percent of the UK population!Read More
Southern Maryland, where I live, used to be a premier tobacco-growing region. Then in the 1980s, as the risks of tobacco smoking became clear, the state of Maryland instituted a tobacco buy-out program. Tobacco farmers received a large payment for ten years in a row to never plant tobacco again. The problem is that what replaced the tobacco was mostly soybeans—a crop that is far more carcinogenic and dangerous than tobacco. Fields-of-lung-cancer became fields-of-every-kind-of-cancer.

Diabetes is on the rise, both type 1--in which the pancreas does not secrete insulin --and type 2--in which the cells’ receptors for insulin don’t work. Either way—and the likelihood is that most diabetics have some combination of type 1 and type 2--sugar can’t get into the cells (so they starve) and sugar levels in the blood remain high.Read More
I recently learned that near the end of his life, Bill W, the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), went to his board of directors and urged them to add nutritional therapy to the AA protocols. The board turned him down.Read More
