Steve Tallent (with his wife, Stephanie) is the co-owner of Beeyoutiful.com, an online store that sells supplements and personal care products. Steve and Stephanie have been members of the Weston A. Price Foundation for several years, as well as sponsors of the annual conference. This year, after Dr. Kaalya Daniel’s report on fermented cod liver oil came out, Steve and Stephanie decided to pull out as sponsors of the WAPF annual conference in Anaheim happening next month. Not only that, but they have since stopped selling Green Pasture products on their website.
In this video, Steve explains why.
David Gumpert is a journalist, a blogger, and the author of three books, The Raw Milk Revolution ; Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Food Rights; and The Raw Milk Answer Book. In this video, we talk about the FCLO scandal and “WAPFGATE”. David expresses concerns about how the Weston A. Price Foundation has reacted to the scandal and how he has been attacked and criticized. In fact, WAPF chapter leaders have been “excommunicated” by Sally Fallon Morell for linking to David’s blog. David also shares that some WAPF chapter leaders will be attending the conference at the new PPPF organization.
Archie Welch as been a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation and Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund for a decade. In recent years, Archie has worked with fellow WAPF member, Dan Corrigan as a partner in the company, Corganic which was founded to help provide nourishing foods and supplements to people who need them, especially children on the autistic spectrum. Corganic sold fermented cod liver oil for a short period of time (about 8 months) but when they got too many complaints from their customer base largely comprised of “canaries in the coal mine,” they stopped selling the Green Pasture products.
This past winter, after being shunned by the Weston A. Price Foundation for encouraging them to bring on more Paleo members, Cathy Raymond lost her job and ended up homeless. Living in a friend’s basement with no heat, she developed a bright red skin rash that ultimately spread from head to toe. In today’s video, Cathy tells how after she quit taking fermented cod liver oil, her rash “miraculously” disappeared. Not only that, but she effortlessly dropped 35 pounds in 3 months.
Have you been and your family been taking fermented cod liver oil (FCLO)? You will want to watch this video. Dr. Kaayla Daniel, former Vice President of the Weston A. Price Foundation published a “whistleblower” report on August 23, 2015 that raised questions about a natural vitamin supplement that many people in the real foods community have been taking religiously in the belief that it was a healthy, traditional, and safe food.
As a real food blogger who has actively endorsed and recommended fermented cod liver oil (FCLO) for the past several years, I wanted to share my thoughts on the recent FCLO scandal.
