2nd Generation GcMAF A clever sales ploy, but misleading....

I am posting stories related to GcMAF because it is current news hot topic. I do not endorse the product and there are plenty of alternative wholistic practitioners that are not on board with the product. It is laboratory produced and I question products that are produced in lab vs real foods.

Does anyone one know if GcMAF or related molecules are found naturally in food?

INVESTIGATION: Three days before Dr. Bradstreet was found dead in a river, U.S. govt. agents raided his research facility to seize a breakthrough cancer treatment called GcMAF

I am posting stories related to GcMAF because it is current news hot topic. I do not endorse the product and there are plenty of alternative wholistic practitioners that are not on board with the product. It is laboratory produced and I question products that are produced in lab vs real foods.

Does anyone one know if GcMAF or related molecules are found naturally in food?

The history of the suppression of medical science in America is a long one, filled with true accounts of pioneering doctors and clinicians being threatened, intimidated and even assassinated in order to bury emerging cures and keep the "sick care" industry in control. (The American Medical Association, for example, has been found guilty by the U.S. federal courts of a conspiracy to destroy the chiropractic industry, by the way.)

Over the last few days, we've learned that before being found shot in the chest and floating in the river, pioneering medical researcher Dr. Bradstreet was working with a little-known molecule that occurs naturally in the human body. Called, "GcMAF", this molecule has the potential to be a universal cancer cure for many people. It has also been shown to reverse signs of autism in the vast majority of patients receiving the treatment.

While GcMAF is perfectly legal as a treatment in dozens of advanced nations around the world, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has outlawed it, calling it an "unapproved drug." It is with this designation -- an effort to suppress the forward progress of medical science -- that the U.S. government conducted a raid on Dr. Bradstreet's clinic, specifically seeking to confiscate GcMAF in order to shut down his research and halt his treatment of patients. Meanwhile, Big Pharma gets special permission to unleash untested, experimental drugs on the public as long as those drugs earn sufficient profits.

GcMAF for the treatment of cancer, autism, inflammation, viral and bacterial disease

by David Noakes

Human GcMAF, otherwise known as Vitamin D binding protein macrophage activating factor, holds great promise in the treatment of various illnesses including cancer, autism, chronic fatigue and possibly Parkinson's. Since 1990, 59 research papers have been published on GcMAF, 20 of these pertaining to the treatment of cancer. 46 of these papers can be accessed through the GcMAF web site.

The Eye-Brain Connection

In Tips From the Traditional Cook by Maria Atwood, CNHP2 Comments

I’ve needed to wear glasses since my very early childhood, but I’ve never done anything for my eyes except obediently get my yearly exam and leave with a stronger prescription than the one before. That habit abruptly stopped last year when I was visited with a serious inflammation in my left eye. The sudden redness and severe pain in my eyeball sent me to a top specialist, and after the examination he prescribed steroid drops. He also suggested I’d need them for the rest of my life, as what I had was an incurable disorder—but since steroids are damaging in the long run, I’d need to use them cautiously.

Oxygen Discussion

Fish Oil Oxidation

Dr. Jerome J. King, Dr. Randolph M. Howes, and Dr. Jie Zhang

Marine oils have long been recognized as having health benefits and that mind set is still true today. Modern consumers, in addition to recognizing health benefits, are also concerned about the overall safety of the oils both for themselves and for their loved ones. How does one know if oil is “safe” and does it contain chemicals or chemical breakdown products that may be detrimental? Modern day analytical methods and instrumentation can determine the type and amount of fatty acids in the oil and medical science has established certain health benefits with select fatty acids.

From a strictly biochemical aspect, fats are composed of fatty acids and glycerol. Fatty acids are long-chained organic molecules that can be classified as saturated, monounsaturated, or polyunsaturated. Saturated fatty acids are composed of carbon atoms bonded to the next carbon atom all with single bonds. A mono-unsaturated fatty acid is also composed of carbon atoms bonded together, but two of the carbon atoms have a double bond which is denoted as - C = C -. A polyunsaturated fatty acid has two or more sets of carbon atoms with double bonds and could be denoted as - C = C – C = C -. The number and location of the double bonds affect the physical composition of the fat. If fatty acids with multiple double bonds are present, the fatty acids result in liquid oil while if the fatty acids are all saturated, the material would be a solid. Plant or vegetable oils contain monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fatty acids and are liquid in nature while animal fats, which generally contain unsaturated fatty acids, are solid.

Gum Disease and Nutrient-Dense Food Supplements: Results of my In-Office Study

Please see the PDF file listed below for the results of Dr. Alvin H. Danenberg, DDS's in-office study.

Fermented Food Study And Taste Test Video

Fermented Food Study and Taste Testing Video


By popular demand another video. Enclosed are part 1 and 2 video of fermented food taste testing followed by taste/odor study documents. Click on to start video and see documents. The documents will be a full amine, pH, TBA discussion on all the fermented foods brought in for tasting.

The study is a one point in time discussion and has no statistical significance. All markers reported have to do with industries attempt to describe the ferment and taste/odor experience. None of these markers are food safety discussion points. All these foods are not only food safe but are very likely as nutrient dense as any you will find on earth.

From my observation the flavor profile variations of our oils have been less pronounced the past two to three years compared to 3-6 years ago. I think the ferment starter we have developed overtime has assisted in the reduction of the products flavor profile. I guess similar to perfecting a cheese culture.

We did not include the wine/vinegar/balsamic vinegar in the video as we only had so much time. The report is included. Interesting, the oxidation marker for the balsamic vinegar is very high as a % of fat, 122-165 TBA. Dr. Jie shared with me that in China the very dark and thick vinegars are regularly consumed for health.

The rancid/toxic markers that are routinely checked for in the industry, as related to human health, are aldehydes and their conjugated hydroperoxydiene precursors. Our oils have been checked once and there are none, as expected. These products are a result of high heating of oils and our oils are not heated so these compounds are not a concern.

Dr. Randolph Howes "Free Radical Theory of Aging and Oxidative Stress"

Hello all,

Enjoy.  Dr. Howes is quickly becoming one of my hero's. He is passionate and right and speaks without regard to popular opinion.

Oxidative study

We do not spend the dollars very often on these tests as the tests do not tell a proper story nor do we fully agree with the standardization of the industrial oils industry using these parameters to define quality. But every now and then we get questions. Here are the last tests we have done on the different defining parameters described by Dr. Jie... (FYI we need oxygen to live... the free radical theory is false :) )

Fyi, we have completed a two year study on peroxide previously posted



Hi, Dave,

Here are the sum of today's topic.

1) Our product is unique. It is fermented and using the industrial standards to evaluate it is unfair and inappropriate. We do not measure the oxidative stability because we think it is unnecessary for our products. We do not use any heat, chemicals to refine/purify our products; the products are the way it should be. And the test results have proved the oxidation is not as high as someone thought. The PV was less 4.5 mEq/kg at the initial measurement and the P-Anisidine value was 11.02. The TBARS was just 2.35 mg/kg. The numbers are pretty low and I do not think it can become an issue. We do not want to add any additives in our products and we want it to be produced in the natural way.

Vitamin D Discussion

Hello, over time we have shared studies and discussion on Vitamin D. Here are some bullet points to recap followed by a few new discussion points presented by Dr. Jie

+ Vitamin D is plentiful in the sea. Vitamin D originates at the base of the food chain as both D2 and D3 in zoo and phyto plankton. Discussion located in blog posted January 2014 titled Food Chain as Origin of Vitamin D in Fish

+We routinely test our fclo for D2/D3 but we also went through the expense to have our oils tested using the rat bio assay. The lab fed our fclo to rats and measured bone growth/density to confirm not only are there molecules floating around but they are active in fuction. Our products were very active with vitamin D affect. The scientist who did the work taught me much on the subject. One paraphrase I will not forget; 'All the vitamin D testing is meaningless. The only way to test vitamin D is to feed it to rats! Rats don't lie! ' In other words... count all the molecules you want. Counting molecules does not equate to results.

+As commonly known within the fishery industry and referenced to Fishery By-Products Technology "Fish oil, especially cod liver oil, is the best natural source of vitamin D2"..... click icon at bottom of artcile to continue



Below is short discussion provided by Dr. Jie on Vitamin D2 vs D3. He is working on a couple papers of interest to the group and this discussion will be part of his work but in much more detail.


Hi Dave,

I just quickly searched some scientific papers and found something interesting. The argument of "Vitamin D3 is better than Vitamin D2," is really meaningless. If they have different function, or if Vitamin D2 has not bio-activities, how can it be given a name as Vitamin D?

Here is something from USDA:

Major metabolic steps involved with the metabolism D2 are similar to those of the metabolism of D3. Vitamin D without a subscript represents either D2 or D3 or both and is biologically inert, requiring two obligate hydroxylations to form its biologically active hormone, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D) (DeLuca, 1988; Reichel et al., 1989).

Since both Vitamin D will be converted into same bio-active hormone in your body, why we are still struggling with the form of them?

Okay, here is more: A research conducted by Dr. Michael F. Holick said,
Vitamin D2 Is as Effective as Vitamin D3 in Maintaining Circulating Concentrations of 25-Hydroxyvitamin D
(the abstract can be found in NIH database: and the fulltext can be accessed through

I think people would like to concentrate on Vitamin D3 is due to it can be synthesized in the skin. But remember, the bio-active hormone is 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, which comes from both Vitamin D2 and D3.



Confusion on Fermented Cod Liver Oil and introducing Dr. Jie to our Staff and Customers

"I Don't know a more nutrient dense food than Fermented Cod Liver Oil...Hundreds of thousands of molecular structures. It is Beyond a label discussion"


I have had about 6 identical questions in the past wk so my guess is someone is blogging about our product from a perspective of not understanding the product or simply intentionally misleading. People do make mistakes so I hope it is such rather than misleading with intent to confuse people. In past, when we have seen this type of activity, it is usually tied to selling something else. Oh what a surprise :).

If you have someone questioning Fermented Cod Liver Oil it might be as simple as thinking it through. We are doing nothing more than your gut would do to digest the liver for you. IF you are afraid of your natural digestive system then, and only then, should you be concerned about fermented cod liver oil. We are predigesting the livers with similar process of your digestive system. This makes the oil an essence of the whole liver and more available and nutritive than eating/digesting the liver itself. In addition we are learning to age the Fermented Cod Liver Oil. Maybe some day we will label with vintage years :)

I had one wholesale customer who contacted me saying that another sales person selling other products told him our products had FFA (free fatty acid) in them. My reply was 'I hope so'. Most industrialized oils will prop their products up and make claim statements on how low the ffa is in their product. But in fact this is a weakness. Industrialized oils need to keep ffa as low as possible because the process itself creates a product that if ffa is not controlled the product will be in poor condition and have a horrible or pungent smell. Industrial produced oils are completely different than fermenting the liver and have a completely different set of defining parameters.  You can not look at both through the same eyes.  You will continually get the wrong answers because the question is wrong.  This might be how a blogger can make a honest mistake rather than intentionally misleading.

FFA is actually healthful for us. It is key for blood sugar management and other benefits........ click article to continue


Dr. Jie

Introducing Dr. Jie to our customers.

Over the years I have had a few trusted consultants within the scientific community. One of them is Dr. Jie. He has assisted in a variety of roles the past couple years including interning at our plant about 1 year ago.

Dr. Jie has a Doctorate Degree in Food Science Technology.

Some duties include:

Setting up lab for product and informational testing,

Quality control

Assisting / writing Scientific papers on our products


Refining the fermentation and aging process

He will head new product development, We have been looking at making a pet food for our beloved cats and dogs for several years using the protein section of the fermented livers. During Dr. Jie's PhD Program he did some pet food development work. We hope to introduce a pet food sometime in 2015.

All our products are packaged in pharmaceutical licensed facilities, Dr. Jie will take over the role of coordinating the product safety testing and meeting regulatory guidelines ... This area of food manufacturing is ever more tasking.

Is One Brand of Coconut Oil Better than Another Because of Higher Lauric Acid Content?

I hear some people claim that one brand of coconut oil is better than another because it has a higher lauric acid content. Is this true?

Fats and oils are composed of fat molecules known as fatty acids. The character of each fat or oil is determined by the amounts and the types of fatty acids it contains. Coconut oil is composed predominately of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA). This is what makes coconut oil so different from other fats and what makes it incredibly healthy.

Medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) provide many health benefits: they are quick and easy to digest, boost energy, balance blood sugar, and protect against cancer, among other things. One of their most remarkable features is their ability to kill disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Because of these antimicrobial properties coconut oil is used as a natural antibacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal remedy. Since coconut oil is a food, it is harmless to us but is effective in killing many microorganisms that cause illness.

Surprising New Vitamin D Research

I posted an article on Vitamin D earlier in the wk for the community as I thought it to be useful for discussion/interest on the pathway for vitamin D. Almost 100% of the articles published in media medicine discuss Vitamin D isolates including the article "The Vitamin D Epidemic..." Not all articles on the blog do I agree 100% but rather post for general discussion... I don't have to agree with the points/discussion. Below article is posted for discussion related to the objection of Vitamin D isolates and related topics. The interview is with  Chris Kresser. For those of you that do not know of  Kressers work please visit his website well worth your time


Surprising New Vitamin D Research

By Chris Kresser May 22, 2013

So I want to talk about a couple different things today, and we’re going to start with vitamin D.

There’s a lot of new research coming out that is pretty surprising, I think, to many of us who’ve been following this issue for a while, perhaps more surprising to people who’ve been recommending really high levels of vitamin D.

For the last several years I’ve been warning against excessively high levels of vitamin D for some of the reasons we’re going to talk about today, but there’s a lot of controversy about this.

The science is definitely mixed and inconsistent, and the jury is certainly not out.

The Vitamin D Epidemic and its Health Consequences

Found this paper and thought some in the community would appreciate this work.

The Vitamin D Epidemic and its Health Consequences1,2,3,4

  1. Michael F. Holick5


Vitamin D deficiency is now recognized as an epidemic in the United States. The major source of vitamin D for both children and adults is from sensible sun exposure. In the absence of sun exposure 1000 IU of cholecalciferol is required daily for both children and adults. Vitamin D deficiency causes poor mineralization of the collagen matrix in young children’s bones leading to growth retardation and bone deformities known as rickets. In adults, vitamin D deficiency induces secondary hyperparathyroidism, which causes a loss of matrix and minerals, thus increasing the risk of osteoporosis and fractures. In addition, the poor mineralization of newly laid down bone matrix in adult bone results in the painful bone disease of osteomalacia. Vitamin D deficiency causes muscle weakness, increasing the risk of falling and fractures. Vitamin D deficiency also has other serious consequences on overall health and well-being. There is mounting scientific evidence that implicates vitamin D deficiency with an increased risk of type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, cardiovascular heart disease, and many common deadly cancers. Vigilance of one’s vitamin D status by the yearly measurement of 25-hydroxyvitamin D should be part of an annual physical examination.

Grey hair disappears, just one positive effect from the use of FCLO..share your observations

Received below note from Yvie. Thought I would share with the group. I receive many testimonials but as a manufacturing company we typically can not share. This one is different as it discusses an observation other than a specific disease. I think hair color change is hormonal effect..correct? I do receive other comments that surround hormonal discussion.


If you would like to share with the group on the topic of hormonal observations this is the blog... please click comment and post your notes. please do not use the names of diseases.


hello, since the end of october 2013 I am using every day! The weird and great thing is.... I feel good and happy but also.....and this is really true.....I am silver grey haired since like 10 years... my ginger hair color is returning... more and more every week .... It is now up to the point that others even notice it.... So weird, so good.... you should use that fact on your website!! Greetings Yvie (56) from Holland observation is everyone is unique and no two observations or reactions are the same. One can not conclude that if one person sees or feels this so will I. Some do better on skate liver oil rather than fclo etc...

How To Avoid A Famine of Quality

Here is another in a line of articles on the topic of Diet, Crime and Delinquency. This paper was published in 1947 By Sir Albert Howard and in a '1984' like prophecy he predicts a link between future generational health and the destruction or change in farming practice ... which is all tied into our food chain.

On another note: Does anyone know a WAPF perspective or book review on Dr. D'Adamo's blood type work. Couple of books of his include: Eat Right for your Blood Type and Change your Genetic Destiny. His web site is I'm wondering if his work might explain why some people are stronger with skate vs cod, others are stronger on cod and still others do best with both.

Doctors discussion on comparing Fish Oils

I will Publish some different correspondence from Doctors on the subject of FCLO vs other 'Natural/fresh squeezed :) , raw etc... cod liver oils. I will delete names and product names as i don't think it is appropriate to discuss others products specifically......

Many want to test molecule by molecule but i don't think this says what it needs to say for a broad picture. Molecules can be manipulated for reading purposes but effect can not be fooled..

Here is some correspondence forwarded to me by Louisa Williams, Author of Radical Medicine...

Redox discussion: Heat, Chemical and Fermentation/digestion

Please feel free to comment.


Molecular isolates.....just does not seem right...too many unknowns




When you take vitamin supplements, they can interfere with the levels of different medications and substances that are absorbed by your body. Increased vitamin D levels appear to be linked with a decrease in the amount of vitamin K in your body, though it is not known if taking vitamin D directly affects vitamin K.


Important Paper on Glyphosate - and discussion on the NEW pathogen effecting plant, animal and human fertility

Update 11/12/12

Dr Huber Spoke at the WAPF conference this past wk.  If there is one presentation to buy this is the one.  Dr. Hubers information is startling. If you have been following this story linking glyphosate and a new pathogen you will know the importance if his work.  Here are a few tid bits;   The 'New' Pathogen is close to being sequenced, maybe within the month more information on this story.  The US has dipped 25% in human fertility rate in the last 5 years.  93% of US females have this pathogen in their system.  It appears the pathogen will be a prion or prion like.  The pathogen is the first of its kind in its ability to cross between plant, animal and humans with the same destructive force  harming fertility of its host.  It is directly associated with glyphosate and is harbored in the soil and our food chain.

One paraphrase from the talk '...we are on the brink of a calamity...risk of loosing an entire generation....'

I think the link to buy the talk by Dr Huber will be posted soon on the site.


Dr. Huber is a retired Colonel, 13 years Joint Chiefs of Staff (two administrations), 40 year Purdue University pathologist emeritus

From Huber's summary:  "The introduction of such an intense mineral chelator as glyphosate into the food chain through accumulation in feed, forage, and food, and root exudation into ground water, could pose significant health concerns for animals and humans and needs further evaluation."

Should We Avoid Fish Because of Mercury? Part 2

How much fish is safe to eat?
Joint recommendations for fish consumption from the EPA and FDA as of 2004 are as follows:

  • Eat up to 12 ounces (2 average meals) a week of a variety of commonly eaten fish and shellfish found consistently low in mercury, including shrimp, canned light tuna, salmon, pollock, and catfish

  • Limit albacore tuna to 6 oz. per week
  • Do not eat shark, swordfish, king mackerel, or tilefish because they contain high levels of mercury

What was cod liver oil like in the early 1800's? Was it brown? How did it taste?

I picked up a book that was originally published around 1840.  Here are a few quotes

Mercury Fearmongers

Mercury Fearmongers

  • Chicago Tribune reporters Michael Hawthorne and Sam Roe

    SCARE: Self-described as “one of the nation's most comprehensive studies of mercury in commercial fish,” a December 2005 Chicago Tribune report from Michael Hawthorne and Sam Roe claimed that a number of popular fish sold in Chicago markets and restaurants were “so tainted that federal regulators could confiscate the fish for violating food safety rules.” In a later editorial complaining about “Tuna Roulette,” the Tribune warned of “dangerous levels of mercury that can be found in many commonly consumed fish varieties” and called for an increase in FDA testing and food warning labels.

    FACT: This report completely ignored the reality of the safety margins that are built into the FDA’s consumer advice. Fish samples exceeding the FDA’s mercury Action Level are not inherently unsafe to eat. According to Hawthorne and Roe, the highest mercury reading in its survey was a swordfish whose concentration was 3.07 parts per million. Considering the Action Level’s built-in safety factor, this is less than one-third of the level that might be harmful. No other species averaged above 1.0 part per million.

    FACT: Despite their headline hyperbole, Hawthorne and Roe were unable to find a single sample of tuna that exceeded the mercury Action Level, which is itself just ten percent of what might be harmful.

Mercury Myths

Myth: The amount of mercury in our environment (and in the fish we eat) is dangerously increasing.

The truth: There's considerable evidence that the amount of mercury in fish has remained the same (or even decreased) during the past 100 years.

Tuna Meltdown


Over the next couple wks i will post a few articles to 'stir the discussion pot' on the topic of mercury.. please post/share your comments


By steering consumers away from the fish counter and the canned tuna aisle, overblown warnings about trace mercury levels have directly and negatively impacted public health, especially the neurological development of children born to low-income mothers.

This report offers the first quantitative measurement of that impact.

Vitamin D and Chronic Rhinitis

Recent findings Vitamin D has been shown to have an immunomodulatory effect with a significant impact on immune function. Specifically, vitamin D regulates the mechanisms which suppress the inflammatory response and direct the differentiation fate of immune cells. Vitamin D has been shown to play an important role in asthma, and the concept of the unified airway model allows the extrapolation of vitamin D as a critical player in chronic rhinitis and rhinosinusitis.
Summary Recent findings on the function of vitamin D may explain aspects of the pathophysiology of chronic rhinitis and CRS, and may help direct future treatment of these diseases.

The Aspartame Trap: You May Be Unknowingly Ingesting This Toxic Sweetener

The risk of artificial sweeteners is still very real. Aspartame is used as a substitute sweetener in thousands of products. Most diet sodas, processed foods and candies contain this ‘alternative’ to sugar. If you aren’t careful, you’ll easily run into it somewhere in your food.

How Much Fermented Cod Liver Oil to Take

To follow is a dialog I had with a customer on the topic of how much Fermented Cod liver  Oil to take.  The customer was attempting to define Fermented Cod Liver Oil and usefulness by choosing a couple molecular structures and defining their need in Iu's.  This discussion is common so I though I would share my 'two cents' on the subject.

I conducted a laboratory experiment in 1989 in which I planned to discover how much, if any, mercury stored in animal's bodies when they ate raw and cooked swordfish. I chose swordfish because it is considered to contain highest levels of mercury, and because it is my favorite-tasting fish. I wanted to know if I had been contaminating myself with that delicious tasting fish.

Mercury Myths

Mercury Myths

     1. The amount of mercury in our environment (and in the fish we eat) is dangerously increasing.

     2.  Mercury in fish presents a serious health risk to Americans.

     3.  The health risk from mercury outweighs the health benefits of eating fish.

     4.  You can get mercury poisoning from the amount of fish you might consume in a given week or month.

      5.   Every year in the United States, 630,000 children are born with mercury levels in their blood that put them "at risk" for neurological disorders later in life.

     6. Eight percent of American women of childbearing age have unsafe levels of mercury in their blood.          


The best science indicates that trace amounts of mercury in the fish Americans eat simply aren't high enough to pose a health risk. But measuring only mercury further exaggerates this hypothetical risk. There's another scientific wrinkle that few environmental groups are talking about -- largely because it doesn't help to promote their scare campaigns. An accurate picture of the health consequences of eating fish must include other substances that affect the way mercury interacts with the human body.

The Marshall Protocol

I found this interesting article... Good for general discussion. The discussion about urine therapy in this type of article is encouraging.

In addition the discussion or debate about levels of vitamin D in blood samples is relevant for debate as the article points out. Real FCLO is different from other cod liver oils as there are many types of D and none of the types are made or extracted and added into the product as other supplements/foods are treated for labeling purposes.

I just don't think we have the knowledge to make conclusions about this molecule or that molecule in relation to natural medicine. So the debate goes on.....



While there are many taxonomies of alternative medicines, one thing almost all alternative therapies have in common is they are originally the de novo discovery of one lone individual. Working outside of the mainstream, they are the gadflies who see farther because those around them are midgets.

Hanneman conceives of homeopathy, the treatment of all disease.
Palmer conceives the cause of all disease and its treatment in chiropractic
Mikao Usui, while having a mid-life crisis, conceives Reiki.
Virgin births all. These pioneers boldly go where no man has gone before.

We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies.

Found this post. thought it flows with several other blog postings i published written by Dr. Don Huber. If below peaks your curiosity and you want to start your investigation please take a look on my blog for the articles written by Dr. Don Huber on GMO's.


According to F.W. Engdahl, an American-German freelance journalist, historian, and economic researcher, one long-standing project of the U.S. government has been to perfect a genetically-modified strand of corn. This variety of corn was field-tested over ten years ago, and according to the president of the small bio-tech firm in charge of that project...

"We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies."

Hydrogen Peroxide - Curse or Cure?

When it comes to hydrogen peroxide therapy there seems to be only two points of view. Supporters consider it one of the greatest healing miracles of all time. Those opposed feel its ingestion is exceptionally dangerous, and only the foolhardy could think of engaging in such behavior. Before either condemning or endorsing hydrogen peroxide, let´s take a real close look at what we´re dealing with.

The Purdue Vaccination Studies and Auto-antibodies

A team at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine conducted several studies (1,2) to determine if vaccines can cause changes in the immune system of dogs that might lead to life-threatening immune-mediated diseases. They obviously conducted this research because concern already existed. It was sponsored by the Haywood Foundation which itself was looking for evidence that such changes in the human immune system might also be vaccine induced. It found the evidence.

PQQ New Vitamin identified and found in HVBO and FCLO

A quick note on PQQ testing.

PQQ is a Newly identified vitamin.. see below. More info on PQQ can be found on the WWW

PQQ is very high in the HVBO and even higher in the FCLO. Other unidentified peaks or related molecules are positioned just before or just after the HPLC PQQ peak in the HVBO/ Skate Liver oil and the FCLO. All Three Products show different peaks of interest . : Lab technicians doing the test were gushing all over the PQQ analysis including the other peaks on the graph.... below is a quick reference

Answer to questions why some have digestive discomfort when taking FCLO

Below note was so well thought out i thought i would share as i have had this question many times over the years. She is answering the question on why different types of digestive discomfort for some and not others when taking FCLO.

Dr. Huber and the Impact of Glyphosate in the Food Chain

Latter-Day Luther Nails Troubling Thesis to GM Farm & Food Citadels

Copyright 2011 – by Steven McFadden


After trucking across the high plains for five hours, and casting my eyes over perhaps 100,000 acres or more of winter’s still deathly gray industrial farmland, I came face to face with the newly famous Dr. Don M. Huber in the cave-dark meeting room of the Black Horse Inn just outside the American Heartland village of Creighton, Nebraska.

On the morning of March 24, along with about 80 farmers and Extension agents, I listened as Huber discoursed with erudition and eloquence upon industrial farming practices that may be impacting nearly every morsel of food produced on the planet, and that subsequently may also be having staggeringly serious health consequences for plants, animals, and human beings.

Huber is emeritus soil scientist of Purdue University, and a retired U.S. Army Colonel who served as an intelligence analyst, for 41 years, active and reserves. In Nebraska, he stood ramrod straight for three hours with no notes and spoke with an astonishing depth and range of knowledge on crucial, controversial matters of soil science, genetic engineering, and the profound impact of the widely used herbicide glyphosate upon soil and plants, and ultimately upon the health of animals and human beings.

Paper by Huber and Haneklaus on Managing Nutrition to Control Plant Disease

Managing Nutrition to Control Plant Disease.

Don M. Huber1 and S. Haneklaus2

1Botany & Plant PathologyPurdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA
Institute of Plant Nutrition and Soil Science, Braunschweig, Germany


Plant diseases are a major limitation to improved production efficiency and crop quality as they reduce nutrient availability, uptake, distribution, or utilization by the plant. Disease symptoms frequently reflect the altered nutritional status of the plant and it is frequently difficult to clearly distinguish between the biotic and abiotic factors involved.

Fake rice article and notes on D3 from Dr. Weber

Yes Americans are as dumb as They appear or they would not be taking FAKE vitamin D3 which flushes magnesium out ot their body causing diabetes among other things and they would stop puting gluten into their bodies which blocks vitamin D absorption (81% of the American population is gluten intolerant) and they would not have bought into the Cholesterol Con - I could fill volumes with how dumb Americans are but whats the point because the book would be out of date before it was published with all the new cons Americans are buying into on a daily basis.

Dr. Don Huber Letter Sounds Alarm to USDA on Herbicide Roundup

WHILE INSISTING HE DOES NOT WANT to be an alarmist, one of the nation’s senior soil scientists is alerting the federal government to a newly discovered organism that may have the potential to cause infertility and spontaneous abortion in farm animals and, potentially, humans.
Dr. Don Huber, professor emeritus at Purdue University, believes the appearance and prevalence of the unnamed organism may be related to the nation’s over reliance on the weed killer known as Roundup. In a letter to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, obtained by SafeLawns, the professor is calling on the federal government to immediately rescind the Jan. 27th decision to allow genetically modified alfalfa to be released to farmers this spring.

Part 2, Vitamin D, To test or not to test.

Below came from posting on another blog. It was posted by someone who i consider one of the best natural teachers i have ever met. I thought many would appreciate her insights and approach to the question

Comment on why different reactions to taking oils

We have posted this previously but it has been some time. People do have a variety of reactions or observations taking oils. Here is one of my Email replies to this question. This person indicated that she feels sluggish or in general does not do as well taking the fclo.

"All are different, many get the opposite reaction. Strength stamina, euphoria etc...are common traits when taking FCLO.

Green Pasture Products In the EU... Passed All EU Testing and Compliance by EU Authorities ... Congratulations Holomed

Holomed in the Netherlands completed work with the EU Authorities including stringent testing and authentication of ALL Blue Ice and X-Factor Products. EU Approval is much more stringent than the rest of the world. There was never any doubt our products would pass as we have completed the same tests here is the US for 10 years without issue but the expense to work with the EU authorities is much more complex and costly than working with the US authorities.

PCB's, Dioxin, PBDE's in the enviroment and mirrored in breast milk at much higher levels than any fish oil

Below is an article that i would like to share. A few important points that jump out are:

1. Breast milk has more PCB's than Prop 65 Allows in Fish oils. We have never seen high PCB's in our FCLO nor have i seen any reported PCB levels as high as in breask milk. I assume their are some reported cases but my intuition is it would have come from lake/river fish or fish caught near river outlets and coastal industrial centers.

Plant Hormones as Human Nutrients.... Maybe what Butter oil is all about???

This article describes the emerging science of plant hormones as human nutrients. I think this science best highlights what the our High Vitamin Butter Oil is all about.

Discussion:roles of Vitamin A, Hormone D, other hormones, steroids, sterols etc

The question about the roles of Vitamin A, Hormone D, other hormones and quinones comes up from time to time.

FCLO's role is high levels of fat-soluble nutrients including vitamins A, D, E, and K; quinones; enzymes; hormones; and fatty acids. The complex of these nutrients will be totally different in the butter oil versus the FCLO.

The Fatty Acid Complex is completely different as are the species collecting these nutrients. The hormone/steroid structure is directly related to the species and the fatty acid structure of the species’ diet.

Storing Fermented Cod liver oil

This is rehashing old info....

Fermented Cod Liver oil has not traditionally been in refrigerated. Only after the industrialization of the oil did cold storage become the norm.

If you refrigerate the FCLO it may cloud or solidify. This does not hurt the product itself but does change the texture.

I get a common Question, Raw Butter, Ghee, Butter Oil, Coconut Ghee

In My Opinion, I would never discount real raw 100% grass fed butter . Eat as much as you can. There is no need to heat the raw butter to make ghee. I think raw butter is truly one of our whole sacred foods. If you don't mind the flavor, raw cultured butter is even better.

Part 2, Deeper discussion; Why FCLO and High Vitamin Butter Oil

The question about The Roles of Vitamin A, Hormone D, other hormones and quinones comes up from time to time.

FCLO's Role is high Levels of Fat soluble nutrients including A,D,E,K quinones, enzymes ,hormones and fatty acids. The Complex of these Nutrients will be totally different in the butter oil vs the fclo.

The Fatty Acid Complex is completely different as is the species collecting these nutrients. The Hormone/steroid/enzyme structure is directly related to the species and the fatty acid structure (diet).

Part 1: Two most asked questions: Why Fermented Cod Liver oil, Why High Vitamin Butter Oil

Two most asked questions: Why Fermented Cod Liver oil, Why High Vitamin Butter Oil

Fermenting fish/fish livers to make oils is an ancient practice, and the resulting oils were considered a sacred food. Fermented cod liver oil (FCLO) has been an important part of a typical family’s home for several hundred years.

EPA/DHA/Omega 3 This is not the real story, The Cambridge International Institute for Medical Science

I will attempt to scan the document quoted for more tid bits, here is the beginning of the Paper that I think is pointed to the topic. I receive many calls on EPA/DHA and i struggle with the question. The struggle is not about how much EPA/DHA the FCLO andf Skate have as they will have the same levels as any other CLO. Approx 15% of the oil will be EPA and 10% DHA for the FCLO. The Skate will be higher in DHA than FCLO.

Reposting old information on clo and ear wax

Dale Alexander (The King of Cod). discussed in one of his books ('How to End Dry Skin' i think is the name of the book) how ear wax production can be stimulated by taking clo. ' take 1 tablespoon of clo per day until your ear wax is flowing then stop or cut back'.

Why Hydrogenated Oils Should be Avoided at All Costs submitted by Dr. Donald

(NaturalNews) If you're really concerned about getting healthy and staying that way, then you have to be very concerned about what you're putting into your body.
This means not only avoiding fast foods and other known junk foods, but it means that you have to be very aware of one of the worst of the more than 6000 chemicals that are added to foods today.

Skepticism Mounts on Need for Vitamin D Supplementation

Great article... their is sooo much more to FCLO than vitamin D. Even the variety of forms of vitamin D is important.... keep in mind the below discussion of vitamin d supplementation is specifically discussing vitamin D3. real FCLO has some D3 but most of the measured D is D2.

Observations from Dr. Kelling, anabolic/catabolic

Dr. Kelling shared a few points on the topic of anabolic and catabolic that I think are worth your consideration.
Each person is one type or another, this is why some do well being treated one way and others have to be treated totally opposite.

Observations by Dr. Donald

Dr. Donald contacted me as he has had a few patients not test strong for FCLO. I have blogged previous that not everyone is the same and some do better on skate rather than FCLO. I do not know why this is true but i have heard this from more than one doctor. Dr. Louisa Williams (Author of Radical Medicine) commented during her WAPF Conference presentation that many of her patients test stronger with Skate vs FCLO.

Vitamin D and transfats, plus other notes of interest

I would like to share with your blog group some new information on the topic of Trans fats and enzyme P450 Cytochrome.

This Enzyme system is messed up by the trans fats in our diet. Sally Fallon shared with me that Dr. Mary Enig thesis focus was on this topic.
1. One of the key functions of this enzyme system is metabolism of Vitamin D in our bodies. Without this system functioning properly the vitamin D does not get to where it needs to go

How much Fclo to consume? Here is Dr. Rosann Volmerts observations

Hi Dave,

As far as dosing goes, I have been asking patients to take 3ml or 3 capsules of fclo along with 2.5ml or 3 capsules of bo. What I have found is that for people in good health this works pretty well to raise vit D levels from the 10's-20's up to 40's-80's.

Update on Cod Liver Oil Manufacturing, Returning to Traditional Production Techniques for the Quintessential Sacred Food

SPRING 2009 Wise Traditions 26 When I began to import cod liver oil, in order to sell it along with the high-vitamin butter oil I was manufacturing, I felt it imperative to go to Iceland and Norway to visit the various cod liver oil factories there. At that time, most cod liver oil in America was imported from Scandinavia, with a small amount coming from China. What I learned is described in an article published in the Fall, 2005 issue of Wise Traditions and posted at "Update on Cod Liver Oil Manufacture Returning to Traditional Production Techniques for the Quintessential Sacred Food By David Wetzel"

Different ways to take 'Real' CLO and Butteroil

Here is a collection both old and new ways to take 'Real' clo and bo. If you have some of your family's dosing success stories to share with the community please forward using the contact link on this web page and i will consider adding to the list.

1. Melt the butter oil in 1-2 ounces of warm water and mix with fermented clo and maybe a tea or lemon juice. down the hatch

2. take on a spoon with a little honey or maple syrup.

3. melt on oatmeal or similar

4. take straight up and enjoy the wake up energy the fermented clo provides to your senses
