BREAKING: PhD & Vice President of Weston Price Foundation writes damning report on Fermented Cod Liver Oil

weston-price-Fermented Cod Liver Oil


Finally, the Truth is exposed about fermented cod liver oil by Weston A Price’s very own Vice President; Dr. Daniel.  She took great risk to bring you this 111 page detailed report she wrote. I gain nothing by telling you, except sharing the truth. People keep asking what’s the problem with FCLO. It has to do with the fermentation process amongst other factors, but is difficult to explain in detail in a few pages, so read the 111 page report as it just cost you your email and you can always unsubscribe. (links in article)

I’ve had many friends who worked for Weston A Price but most have left them by now. I even sang at one of their events (an anti GMO song and another little parody called “Bacterial world”) with my sweet friend Caroline Barringer who owns a fermented veggie company.  I’m guessing that after Dr. Daniel’s  (the vice president of WAPF) 111 page report goes viral, that she might not be either.

Some asked why I only link the PDF and don’t just post 111 pages or the PDF. But Dr. Daniel spent a hell of a lot of time writing it, and if all she wants is your email (you can always unsubscribe) I think that’s more than fair. Again, I gain nothing except i want to get the truth out there.

For the record: Dr. Weston A. Price (the man) never even recommended fermented cod liver oil in his life according to Weston Price Foundation’s very own Vice President Dr. Kaayla Daniel (PhD)

The truth about Fermented Cod Liver Oil

>>> Here is the link to her  damning report <<<<<(basically a book!) about fermented cod liver oil which I’ve always refused to take and told others- if I were them? I wouldn’t touch the stuff. Weston Price Foundation will probably be steaming mad in the next few hours. They say it’s the fermentation process that is the problem (think rancid)

This is breaking news even though we’ve known about for some time, but needed to wait until the well respected Kaayla Daniel (PhD) who is a writer (not to mention the WAPF VP) could finish her in depth report.

We are proud of Dr. Daniel and honored to share this information with the public.

Yes it is true that as of now, WAPF strongly recommend FCLO to their thousands of followers. 

What is interesting is that former WAPF workers are saying that Sally Fallon (the actual president of WAPF)  is in quite a pickle right about now.  I also had never seen Sally Fallon’s reply to Dr. Mercola’s article on about cod liver oil (even the regular kind) back in 2009.  I was a little surprised how harsh her reply to “Mercola”  sounded  sounded and others (even former WAPF workers) agreed with me whole heartedly. But again that is 2009 and we’re talking about present time with the new report from Sally Fallon’s own VP! 

I wonder  if Weston Price would be rolling over in his grave at this news at all of this and probably wouldn’t like the fact an organization boasting his name is recommending practices he never supported!  Some doctors (and I don’t mean PhD’s – I mean doctors) are telling me the fermentation process is no good.

Definitely read Dr. Daniel’s report and see for yourself!

I’ve told people my feelings about fermented cod liver oil in the past when folks write me asking if they should consume it. I always explain what *I* would do and that if *I* were them I wouldn’t ingest the stuff.. and I don’t care what brand.

Even though my better half (a well known doctor) get the stuff for free in the past- I’d never take it and it usually went bad (if it wasn’t already) in the fridge.

We feel for Dr. Daniel for the risk she has taken writing what is basically a book on the controversial subject.

I might do an interview with Dr. Daniel. I’ll ask her if she’ll do one for those want the condensed version. She’s a smart PhD and knows her stuff.

    What is the difference from Cod Liver Oil and fermented cod liver oil? Also why is it bad? I cold not ascertain that from the article. My Integrative medical physician recommended it once per week. I am quite curious on your thoughts.

  • Tia – It’s an 111 page report that Dr. Daniel (our friend) put out and you have to click on where it says “damning report” to get it. It does require your email for her to send it but you can unsubscribe. I haven’t finished reading it, so i don’t want to get it wrong but basically what i’m getting from it is that it goes rancid 🙁 (when fermented ) I would definitely show the report to your physician as Dr. Daniel is the Vice President of Weston A Price Foundation but had to tell the truth and took great risk to do so.

    I bought one Fermented cod liver oil brandname Green Pasture not cheap…a couple of months ago and stored it in the fridge..after two months there was a awful taste that burns in my mouth . At first I couldn’t believe it, but I knew for sure it was not good anymore …So when I read your article things fell in place..

    The link is broken can you send me the book at

    Not so fast there guys!

    Might want to do a little verification of her claims before you start praising Kaayla Daniel for her “report”

    For one thing, Kaayla’s claim that the FCLO is “not even from cod, but Alaskan Pollock” truly shows her ignorance on this subject. A quick Google search reveals that Alaskan Pollock IS in fact cod. ::facepalm::

  • It is my understanding that cod liver oil is a bad source of vitamin D since the vitamin A (also fat soluble) competes with it. It is best to get vitamin D from the sun of God or God’s sun. JAMA estimates that 77% are deficient in vitamin D. The vice president of WAPF says that since refined sugar has destroyed the teeth and health of modern people, they should eat meat. It makes no sense to me.
    Also Dr. Preston is against root canals and so am I. But he was not against it until he killed his son with it (died of infection). He did not know that his son died of eating himself to death. All he had to do to stop the infection was to stop eating. We know that Jesus and Moses did it for 40 days for it is cure for many ills including physical cures and physical situations. Fasting was also done by Buddha, Hippocrates, Pythagoras, Mahatma Gandhi and Abraham Lincoln had national fasting days.

    So, I see that the “Health Nut” doesn’t allow comments from those who disagree with her statements. Way to control the narrative, Erin!

  • Your comment is awaiting moderation as I get thousands a day. I run the site by myself. I don’t have a staff like my better half mercola. As you can see its in the queue because you posted an outside link. I will get to it and no need for the attitude ok?

  • Your comment is awaiting moderation because you linked to a website (those go into moderation) You happened to link to a site that sells a hell of a lot of sh8t too which definitely put it in moderation as I get thousands a day. I run the site by myself. I don’t have a staff like my better half mercola. As you can see its in the queue because you posted an outside link. please don’t ASSume. I cannot even find your original now as you have so many. i don’t have the link. feel free to spell it out without the .com so it posts

    Yeah, trying to catch what you view as a rising star?

    Her “science” is slanted ONLY towards an american middle-class view.

    Lots of people world-wide eat many different fermented foods including fish and fish oils and suffer no ill effects.

    Example: I cannot even consider eating my culture’s Czarnina (duck’s blood soup), the thought makes me want to vomit, even now, but love to eat Kiszka (blood sausage), pickled pigs feet, head cheese (boiled pig based lunch meat) and cow’s tongue.

    [No, I’m not a vegetarian and would thank folks, in advance, to keep their spiteful or hate-filled comments to themselves]

    Some people find some foods disgusting while others eat them with relish. It’s simply a fact. I want it to stay that way as I have a horror of a homogenized world with everyone the same and everywhere the same.

    I am not in terror of change, or differences. I do have a terror of “mob mentality” though, engendered by those trying to “make a name” for themselves.

    Folks need to calm down and wait for all of the facts. One “scientist’s” paper is a drop in the bucket, and from what I’ve read, it’s missing some important facts for validating the “research”, such as the names of the labs that were actually used.

    I notice this topic is really bringing out the crazies. I am astonished at how far people will go to defend a fraudulent practice (as defined by US law), and to claim that somehow it is the exception to all the laws of science, society, and US regulation. I have also noticed that the majority of defenders of the product are making money from it – quite a lot of money from it.

  • lol funny isn’t it? you noticed that too? 🙂 I just shared a study by this PhD and never had so many mad people. I don’t take the stuff, didn’t get paid a dime to share this etc … I sell no competing product. In FACT I’ve sang and performed at WAPF annual meetings and sure i pissed them all off but just sharing the info 🙂 Dr Mercola (my better half) said for me to do what feels right in my heart. so i did 🙂

    Thank you!

    Erin, a lot of information has come out in the last couple months which has completely vindicated Green Pasture Products. Please review the test data provided on the Green Pasture website as well as the recent presentation on fat soluble testing done by Sally Fallon of the Weston A Price Foundation. Fermented Cod Liver Oil, like any food, may not be right for everyone.
