Do viruses cause us to get ill?
That sounds like a stupid question to most people and they look at me like I'm a Martian or in need of a psychiatrist!
But in truth, germ theory is only one idea about what causes disease. Another theory, referred to as Terrain theory or cellular theory, says that viruses are created by the body to help clean up toxins. In that school of thought, the virulence of the virus comes from the toxicity of the host. It's like maggots eating a dead squirrel on the side of the road. Did the maggots kill the squirrel? What if viruses as part of our "virome", which includes hundreds of trillions of them, created by our cells, have an important role to play in keeping us healthy?
In our industrial society our nutrition is terrible, we eat a lot of processed junk, sugar, hydrogenated fats, vegetable oils, drink water laced with various pollutants and metals, use bodycare products with chemicals, pesticides on the food, air pollution from factories and auto exhaust, particulates, and high amount of medications with their various side effects.
Blaming a virus is a convenient way to hide our "sins" and find a scapegoat. And the pharma industry makes a killing off the idea, so they have a great incentive to push the virus narrative and fear mongering.
Either way, however, whether you believe germ theory or terrain theory, it can't be ignored that real food provides the vitamins and minerals we need to stay healthy. Just read Dr. Weston Price's book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration to see how remote cultures ate compared to us today. It's night and day. They were not plagued like we are today and they had healthy babies.
