Book Review: The Contagion Myth: Why Viruses (including “Coronavirus”) Are Not the Cause of Disease

Until we base our public policies on the truth, the situation will only get worse. The truth is that contagion is a myth; we need to look elsewhere for the causes of disease. Only when we do so will we create a world of freedom, prosperity, and good health.” ~ Sally Fallon Morell

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Dr. Thomas Cowan and Sally Fallon Morell have teamed up once again to publish a new book, The Contagion Myth: Why Viruses (including “Coronavirus”) Are Not the Cause of Disease, which nails many of the myths plaguing current events.

In recent months, The Solari Report has published reviews of numerous excellent books and Solari Reports that address many of these myths—including the injection fraud, germ theory, the dangers of the “great poisoning” caused by multiple sources of toxicity, chemical warfare, and the health and surveillance dangers of 5G and EMF radiation. The advantage of The Contagion Myth is that it integrates many of these issues into one highly readable, beautifully written book with additional insights thanks to the extensive knowledge and experience of the authors.

Whenever I read a book by Tom or Sally, a remarkable healing energy radiates from the pages. The Contagion Myth is no exception. These are two people who have spent a lifetime dedicated to helping and healing others. Their energy is welcome in the face of the multiple efforts by governments and the bio-tech-pharma complex to dumb down, poison, and kill. We have included both authors in our list of Pandemic Heroes in the 2nd Quarter 2020 Wrap Up.

Despite the complexity and seriousness of the topic, I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Contagion Myth. Frustrated with the people around you who cannot see the big picture on Covid-19? Put in a bulk order and start sending The Contagion Myth to friends and family. Indeed, this is an ideal book for Christmas gifts this year.

Our Solari Report this week is an interview with Sally, who we have named Solari Hero of the Week! If you have not yet discovered Sally’s work or plugged into the Weston A. Price Foundation, now is a great time to do so!

CENSORED! Note from Sally on October 1, 2020


We are sad to announce that our new book, The Contagion Myth, is banned on Amazon—sad for what has happened to American freedom of expression. But Amazon’s actions tell us that we have already struck a nerve and the powers that be do not want the paradigm-busting information in our book to circulate.

Amazon will be refunding your money or not charging you if you pre-ordered on their site. However, you have many choices for ordering the book online at:

  • Barnes & Noble
  • Books-a-Million
  • Indiebound
  • Target

Thank you for your patience!

The disease called Covid-19 is not contagious and scientists have not properly isolated and purified a virus associated with the disease. The illness, characterized by lack of oxygen, widespread clotting, electrical or “fizzing” feelings, and degeneration of the lungs, fits the description of radiation poisoning from exposure to electromagnetic frequencies. The most likely culprit: microwave radiation from fifth generation wireless—5G. The Covid-19 illness has appeared following the deployment of 5G first in Wuhan, then in Europe and then in large cities in the United States.

That’s the message of The Contagion Myth, now available from Skyhorse Publishing. The authors, Thomas S. Cowan, MD, and Sally Fallon Morell, are the founders of the Weston A. Price Foundation and well-known advocates for a nutrient-dense traditional diet as the best protection against illness and environmental toxins.

Scientists from the U.S. Public Health Service were never able to prove that the Spanish Flu of 1918—which burst on the scene with the worldwide rollout of radio towers–was contagious; and no health agency has carried out the needed contagion studies on Covid-19.

Initially formulated by Louis Pasteur and Robert Koch, the germ theory of disease—that bacteria and viruses attack us and make us sick–has never met the common-sense criteria of Koch’s postulates, which call for subjecting a healthy organism to the isolated bacteria or virus. In fact, while bacteria have received the blame for disease since the nineteenth century, the last two decades have witnessed a complete paradigm shift. Science has demonstrated that we live in symbiotic relationship with bacteria in the intestinal tract; bacteria help us digest our food, enhance the immune system, and also appear when necessary to clean up dead tissue. Bacteria only produce poisons under conditions of filth and lack of oxygen.

Cowan and Fallon Morell argue that we will soon see a paradigm shift when it comes to viruses; that viruses are not harmful, but helpful exosomes that our cells produce to rid the body of poisons and make adjustments to new environmental threats, such as 5G millimeter wave radiation.

It follows that masks, social distancing, testing for genetic material (not an actual virus) and vaccines will not solve the Covid-19 problem. The challenge instead is to institute etiquette and rules for the safe use of wireless technology. The authors also propose dietary and life-style strategies that can help protect against 5G and other electromagnetic frequencies.
