Issue 140: Rebounding, Flu Vaccine, Smallpox, Apple Cider Vinegar, Rice Bran, Parasites, Panic Disorders ...
"What is cow-pox? It is a disease which occurs on the teats of cows; it only occurs when they are in milk; only in one part of the body, and naturally only in the female animal; it results in an ugly chancre; and is not infectious.
Small-pox, on the other hand, is not limited to the female sex as is cow-pox, nor to one portion of the body; it presents different physical signs, and, furthermore, is tremendously infectious, and the course and symptoms of the two diseases are totally different. Therefore there is no analogy between the two." 
Hadwen wrote this 100 years ago, but his objections are
still valid. Doing a taxonomic check today in a standard index of viruses from a
National Institutes of Health database  readily points out that cowpox is
caused by a virus called Orthopox vaccinia and smallpox is caused by a virus
called Orthopox variola. These two viruses have different sizes, genetic
sequences, and characteristics. To pretend that cows get a version of smallpox
called cowpox is bizarre enough - but then to say that people who get the same
disease are immune to smallpox is simply fantasy.
Just finished reading The Maker's Diet myself.
I think I must have every book ever written on alternative diets that claim to improve health. But I'll have to say, this is the first one to really make sense. And I've studied alternative medicine just on my own for about 18 years.
If you will notice, Jordan has a lot of regular foods in his diet...in fact, MOST of them are every day foods ... the difference is ... THERE ARE NO ADDITIVES !!!!!
What did our grandparents eat, and our great grandparents? They ate a lot of what we eat NOW ... except, they GREW THEIR OWN vegetables, and fruit, raised free range chickens...but back THEN, they weren't CALLED "free range" ... they were just the "chickens out there roaming the yard" (ha-ha)...when they wanted MEAT...which, by the way, was probably almost every day... they just went out in the country side and brought home a rabbit, or deer, or turkey, or they processed their OWN beef or pork.
I am head over heals in love with the message in The Maker's Diet...and I think if a person followed it to the letter, they would see profound improvement in their health in no time at all.
