If you listen to the “health experts,” there is always a new pandemic just around the corner.
The World Health Organization has listed a new disease on its list of Priority Pathogens (infectious diseases) which urgently need to have “countermeasures” made for them (read vaccines and drugs). It’s called Disease X because it doesn’t exist yet. But they’re sure it’s coming
“Our greatest fear is being blindsided by a new virus, most likely due to animal-human spillover, which then readily spreads from human to human, has at least a 5 to 10 per cent fatality rate, does not respond to existing medicines, and for which an effective vaccine and accurate diagnostic test cannot rapidly be developed,” according to Dr Jonathan Quick, chair of the Global Health Council.
What they’re looking for is something along the lines of the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic that killed 25 million people. That is far more people than have been killed in all the military wars of the 20th century put together.
The Spanish Flu was a malnutrition disease. Have you ever been incredibly busy for a number of days or weeks and felt rundown and then gotten sick because your immune system was compromised? Now imagine years of that, with no proper nutrition. The western world had exhausted itself in war for four years. Total effort on both sides was toward producing and transporting war materials.
Consequently, there was no transportation for fresh fruits and vegetables to the population. People were living on meat and canned foods and other processed foods. The flu spread through a weak and malnourished people like a prairie fire.
Eighteen million people died in the United States. So the war was stopped. Fresh produce was rushed to market. Suddenly, the Spanish Flu epidemic ended as quickly as it had started.
Today we are approaching the same condition as at the time of the Spanish Flu breakout. We are malnourished and our resistance is down. Nobody feels hunger, but there is famine in our land.
People are overweight and weak, but nobody recognizes that the problem causing so much degenerative disease is actually starvation. Bacteria and infection do not feed upon healthy people.
The great deception hiding the present day epidemic of malnutrition is the germ theory of disease. People believe that they “catch” infectious diseases from other people. The medical trust perpetuates this false notion to push their vaccines.
But Disease X may already be here in the form of chronic wasting disease (CWD), an illness affecting cervids (elk, moose, deer, reindeer and caribou). It’s a spongiform encephalopathy disease that affects the brains of its victims creating what are called “zombie deer” that stumble around, lose their fear of people, become aggressive and drool incessantly. It’s in the same family of diseases as mad cow disease.
There is no cure for the disease, and it is 100 percent fatal. It infects its victim’s brain cells, causing them to burst and leaving behind empty spaces that give the brain a spongy look.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), CWD was first identified in Colorado in deer in captivity at a research facility in the 1960s. It was found in wild deer in 1981, and has since spread into 251 counties in 24 states in the Midwest and Southwest, along with Mississippi, Tennessee, the Virginias, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New York. There are still questions about whether it existed before the 1980s in the non-captive deer population but had just never been seen because no one was looking for it.
The CDC assures us there have been no reported cases of people contracting the human form of CWD from infected deer, but animal studies suggest that non-human primates, like monkeys, that eat meat from a CWD-infected animal or have contact with contaminated brain or body fluids from an infected animal are “at risk” from contracting the disease. It’s been shown to infect mice and hamsters. Humans can and have become infected with CWD’s cousin, mad-cow disease, and in the 1990s hunters in Kentucky contracted a form of the disease after eating squirrel brains. This would seem to indicate humans could also contract CWD from cervids.
And perhaps they already have. The human version of spongiform disease is called Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), and it has killed people in areas where mad cow disease is found. Since 1996, more than 230 CJD cases have been identified in 12 countries, 178 of them in the United Kingdom, 27 in France, and four in the United States, according to Food Safety News.
In humans it creates psychiatric and behavioral changes, trouble walking, loss of weight, and problems with memory and thinking. It is incurable and always fatal.
Popular Science reports that the CDC has investigated a number of cases in which deer hunters who consume deer meat have later contracted CJD. Most troubling, at least three of the cases occurred in men less than 30 years old. Spongiform diseases typically take years to develop, so noting it in young people is cause for concern.
In the early 2000s, several patients with CJD and others with vague neurological symptoms were discovered. All were deer hunters, but none had consumed meat from known infected areas. All of the patients died.
But spongiform disease is not caused by a virus, at least not one that’s been identified. In fact, what sets it off has not been determined.
The medical men believe it’s caused by prions — abnormal pathogenic agents that cause normal cell proteins to fold in aberrant ways. The CDC says the functions of these normal prion proteins are still not completely understood. The abnormal folding of the prion proteins leads to brain damage and the characteristic signs and symptoms of the disease.
Conventional wisdom puts the blame for the spread of the disease on game farms. But the disease stemmed from a research facility that released does into the wild after they had produced fawns for research. So it wasn’t a deer breeder that released the disease.
Once an area is infected it’s almost impossible to get rid of CWD prions. Researchers have found that even replacing and decontaminating soil in areas of infection fail to eradicate the prions. Researchers have also found the prions in plants, indicating the plants pull them out of the soil and hold them until an animal comes along and eats from the plants.
Antibiotics don’t affect prions. Cooking infected meat does not either.
Deer hunters should get their kills tested for CWD before consuming the meat, although the CDC says a negative test result doesn’t guarantee the animal isn’t infected.
Here are CDC’s safe-handling guidelines:
- Do not shoot, handle or eat meat from deer and elk that look sick or are acting strangely or are found dead (road-kill).
- When field-dressing a deer:
Wear latex or rubber gloves when dressing the animal or handling the meat.
Minimize how much you handle the organs of the animal, particularly the brain or spinal cord tissues.
- Do not use household knives or other kitchen utensils for field dressing.
- Check state wildlife and public health guidance to see whether testing of animals is recommended or required. Recommendations vary by state, but information about testing is available from many state wildlife agencies.
- Strongly consider having the deer or elk tested for CWD before you eat the meat.
- If you have your deer or elk commercially processed, consider asking that your animal be processed individually to avoid mixing meat from multiple animals.
- If your animal tests positive for CWD, do not eat meat from that animal.
As always, our best defense against any disease is peak immunity. This means proper nutrition and supplementing our diets with calcium and vitamins C, D3 and F, which I believe is the magic foursome for peak immunity. Vitamin F consists of the two essential fatty acids linoleic acid and alpha-linoleic acid, components of the two main categories of essential fatty acids — omega-3 and omega-6. These are essential, come from food or supplements and must be in balance.
This is something the medical establishment does not tell you about.
