Germs, Disease, the Hygiene Hypothesis and Bechamp vs. Pasteur

I have been re-reading Joel Salatin’s latest book “Folks, This Ain’t Normal” and a statement he makes in there (p. 300) really corrects our messed up thinking about “germs” and disease. He says

“The point is that if I, as a beef producer, don’t feed grain and silage to my animals, even if your steak has some E. coli on it, you won’t get sick. For decades on our farm we’ve treated ourselves to ice cream bars after processing chicken. We’ve never even washed our hands. Guts to ice cream. Yum. We’ve never even gotten sick.”

Wow. Read Joel’s books if you want to understand this “radical” thinking. In short, Joel has found the key to eliminating almost all disease (in both humans and animals) by eating and living in accordance with nature’s designs. I’m not kidding. It is now my studied opinion that we all would have been better off if Louis Pasteur had gone into shoe sales instead of microbiology and we had listened to his rival Bechamp instead. Pretty good Bechamp link HERE. “Germs” are not the bad guys. It is living contrary to nature’s patterns (God’s designs) that is the problem. What Bechamp tells us is that microbes (bacteria and viruses) mutate to harmful forms because of the bad environment in the body caused by eating unnatural foods. Also, Google Hygiene Hypothesis for information on how most city folks are just way too clean. Oprah is now getting on board this new (but really age old) “diet and lifestyle cures diseases” bandwagon. She highlights remote people groups who live to be 100 with virtually no sickness.
