Live Stream for WAPF's Wise Traditions Conference Available for Purchase

Weston A PriceBy Laura Hayes

Hi All,

As I've mentioned, I will be speaking next Sunday at WAPF's Wise Traditions Conference in Montgomery, Alabama.  There is an all-day Vaccination Track on Sunday, 11/13, beginning at 9:00am EST.  I will be speaking from 9:00-10:20, followed by Tetyana Obukhanych (PhD immunologist and author of Vaccine Illusion), Alan Phillips (vaccine rights attorney), and Del Bigtree (co-producer of the movie Vaxxed).

Here is a link for the conference, and under it, specific info regarding how to live stream if interested.


Register now to watch the LIVE streaming and ALL recordings ON-DEMAND after the conference as many times as you want for $169.

I will receive a DVD copy of my presentation 2-3 weeks after the conference, which I will then be able to upload to YouTube.  Once available on YouTube, I will send the link, in addition to a transcript of my presentation to all of you.

The conference has over 40 speakers covering many nutrition- and health-related topics...check it out!  It might just be worth the $169 to you if you want to attend in person, but aren't able.

Archie: I learned about the cod-liver-oil-in-a-barrel practice from reading the little book you supplied us at the WAPF conference in Santa Clara in 2012. I respect what you are doing in providing healthful CLO, but I think there are easier and cheaper ways to keep our vitamin D status optimal, and vitamin A is easily obtained form having a bit of liver. I'm still healing from that rancid, almost vitamin D-less stuff, so I'm a bit wary of CLO in general.

Gary Ogden. Rending is using heat to extract the oil. Leaving cod livers in a barrel is using putrefaction to extract the oil. Putrefaction is basically letting the livers decompose, the liver's hepatic cells eventually burst and the oil floats to the top and is skimmed off. The Vikings of Northern Norway used neither process. The technique used by the Vikings was to bring the fresh caught cod (and other fish with oily livers) to the surface and immediately harvest the livers. The difference in temperature and pressure from the deep fjords to the surface would trigger the liver to exude its oil. The Vikings consumed their cod liver oil fresh along with the fresh cod, cod livers and cod roe. This provided plenty of vitamin D through the winter months. The use of putrefaction (letting the livers rot in barrels) was used during the Industrial Revolution in Europe. The oil was rancid but it was not for human consumption but rather for industry mostly for use in lanterns as a fuel oil. Rosita Real Foods of Northern Norway has taken the Ancient Viking technique of extracting fresh cod liver oil, added natural antioxidants of rosemary herb and vitamin E (tiny drop per bottle) nitrogen flushing the bottle and capping with no oxygen and then cold storing the oil before shipping to the consumer. It is the only fresh, raw and wild caught cod liver oil in the world made from traditional Atlantic cod in Northern Norway. Excellent source of all natural vitamin A and vitamin D plus omega 3 fatty acids. I would steer clear of synthetic vitamins, they do not absorb well and create imbalances.

Narad: I would agree, for the following reasons: The Norse, living at such a high latitude, made an insufficient amount of vitamin D in their skin, and this was a real problem. They enjoyed an abundant harvest of the Atlantic Cod, and figured out that the liver of this species contained vitamins A and D in the proper ratio (about 10 to 1, A to D). They originated cod liver oil as a dietary supplement. They put the livers in a barrel to render the oil. It was surely rancid most of the time, but it was a trade-off which ensured the survival of these communities. Rancid polyunsaturated fats (such as all those clear bottles of vegetable oil on supermarket shelves, as well as most commercial CLO) are dangerous (as are low vitamin D levels). It is difficult and expensive to produce healthful cod liver oil. We have numerous ways today to keep our vitamin D status optimal, so it is my view that we should stay away from it, except in unusual circumstances for short-term use.


I look forward to it. Thank you


I would stay away from the cod-liver oil.

Thank you for your kind words, Gary!

Will keep the recap idea in mind, and will definitely submit the video and transcript of my presentation to AoA for publishing!

Gary Ogden

Laura: I hope you give us a recap here. You will find this an amazing and wonderful experience. These are bright and well-informed people. Preaching to the choir is always for the good, and you're such a powerful speaker.
