  1. Hey there David, what an amazing spirit you are! I just heard about your efforts to run across the country- I myself am training for the Cross trail marathon coming up this summer here in Sitka. I also saw that you are dedicating your run to the anti-GMO movement. I was wondering if you heard about the FDA’s decision to support genetically engineered Atlantic salmon–what are your views on this? Please let me know. I look forward to following your stories as you get closer to the big departure date!

    Hey David and Brett,

    Just wanted to express how awesome of a thing you guys are doing. I’ve been promoting your journey on a Facebook page of mine, so hopefully that helps with a bit of your publicity. Anyways, just wanted to share a response of mine to people who claim David “isn’t ready” at this age:

    “I am 16, and began helping with GASAN when I was 15. I am also an avid runner, and have run ultramarathons of up to 50 miles. I can personally attest by examining David’s personal attributes and training that he has the maturity to handle this. He is by no means forced to continue on if he no longer wishes to, and just because it is a big challenge does not mean it is insurmountable. I admire his passion and determination.
    Respectfully,
    Sam Jaffe”

    Best of luck in your journey.

    -Sam

      Thanks for the good word and vote of confidence, Sam!
      David is now the region champ cross country runner (at the age of 14) and he says he thinks he’s the fastest freshman in Alaska. He’s excited for the transcon run because it will make him that much faster. BTW, I would greatly appreciate a shout out to your readers. The Kindle version of my book, We’re Monsanto, Feeding the World, Lie After Lie will be free Oct 8-12. I would love to “sell” a ton of books this week. We’re Monsanto is a great book to learn more about Monsanto’s lies and to help other people who just don’t get it. It’s available on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FDWQ4GO.
      Thanks again,
      Brett

    It was nice to see you run by our place on your cross country trek. I hope the trains did not bother you too much during your overnight stay here in Essex. We fully support your message and efforts to raise awareness against the GMO agenda! Thank you and wishing you fair weather!

    • Brett Wilcox says:

      Thank you, J.R.!
      Very nice meeting you as well! We quite enjoyed the trains and commented to each other that you probably don’t even really hear the trains anymore. Thanks for your support!

    Dear Wilcox Family, Congratulations on your progess – inspiring, since David is a pie lover – you might consider changing your route to go Pie Town in New Mexico, a bit out of the way – but two awesome pie shops. Keep on keeping on. Aloha, Jeff B

    Hi David and Brett, I’m and avid runner and recently become interested in the whole GMO debate and I’m in the process of educating myself. I live and work in Kansas and I’m a father of 3 kids and first learned about your journey on the Rich Roll Podcast. It would be great if when passing through Wichita I could join you for a run and good discussion…Best of luck and i appreciate your passion for this cause.

  6. Jeff Budd says:

    Dear Wilcox family. Enjoyed the Bruma Shave signs, and we passed thru that very place half dozen or so years ago. Keep on keeping on. Sitka report: 30 degrees, very sunny, still snow and some ice around, but still Sitka. Enjoy. Cheers, Jeff Budd

    • Brett Wilcox says:

      Hi Jeff,
      Thanks for the update. I hear tell that Flagstaff is the third most snowy city in the USA, but you wouldn’t know it by today’s bright blue skies and pleasantly warm temps. You’re welcome to join us anytime you’d like. We’d definitely put you to work! Take care of yourself.
      Brett

    Rebecca Cook just told me about your website! She says you guys may be coming through Kansas City soon. Any chance you would stop and teach a workshop???
    My 9 year old started reading through your 14 Reasons to Boycott Kellogg’s and has decided he isn’t going to eat Kellogg’s anything anymore. Thanks for all you are doing to get the news out!

    • Brett Wilcox says:

      Good job to your son, Becky! We won’t make it to Kansas City but we’re giving a presentation in Greensburg, KS, on Tuesday, and a presentation in Wichita on April 22. Let me know if you want to attend and I’ll send you more information. Thanks for your support!

    It was great having you and your family as our guests for Easter. I wish we had had more time together but I think there will be another time. Best wishes to you and David as you run across this great nation. I support your dedication and for the reason you are making this run. From now forward I will be following you and your family on your journey. When the next time comes that we meet again I will smoke a turkey for the occasion. Be safe, know that you are being protected by Heavenly Father, and your journey will produce results.

    Hello Brett, David and Family,

    Greetings from a fellow Transconner! I ran coast to coast in ’98 following the American Discovery Trail from Delaware to California. My run was 4,800 miles mostly on trails but I wasn’t 15 at the time either. Great job you two and super kudos to your support crew family. Sounds like a supreme family achievement. Keep making the miles and having a wonderful experience. Just this morning I also learned of a 90 year old man also running cross country. He’s headed east as well but currently in Arizona. I love that in the same day, we can hear about one of the youngest and one of the oldest doing something that most would think is impossible!

    Best,

    • Brett Wilcox says:

      Brian, Next time??? I’d like to run the Discovery Trail. I’ve had more than enough of the roads. Yes, the 90 year old man is truly an inspiration! And yes, we wanted to make this a family experience. Intense! Thanks for commenting!

    Hi Dr Sefanyetso and Merck Colleges alike

    The safety of Vaccine science remains controversial if one reads the Jama report and its conclusions below

    http://archinte.jamanetwork.com/Mobile/article.aspx?articleID=2109855

    The latest interview by the ‘fraud’ Dr Wakefield has also lifted many an eyebrow, now asking that his side be heard as Court battles are on the horizon and his college and Co author and scientist on the 1998 Lancet Article on MMR/vs Autism, Dr Smith already reinstated. Why must an innocent whistle blower (Dr Wakefield) take all the brunt for making an observation that made Pharmacetical Co’s feel uneasy ?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgWkhWkd_vo

    I am also still awaiting your scientific report that proves that the benefits of Gardasil outweighs the risks, as requested before

    Could there be a link between the suspected Biotech bubble burst and vaccine safety concerns ?
    Why are Biotechs speeding up research at an unprecedented pace for FDA approval ? Is it because their shareholders are demanding higher dividends and safety concerns are thrown out the window ? See latest Jama article indicating 58% research papers submitted to the FDA are fraudulent

    Just discovered your web site. Great work you are doing. Just read this from ABC news dated 2 Feb 2017. Thought you might be interested. “Children already vaccinated against mumps are still getting the disease, say health officials, who are trying to understand the out break that has affected five times the usual number of cases in the US in the past year. most cases were restricted to the state of Washington, where there have been 367 confirmed cases, mostly among vaccinated children. But a sudden increase is also being seen nationwide, with 5,300 cases reported in 2016 compared with only about 1,000 cases the previous year “

  12. Gayna Crouch says:

    Thank you Brett. I’ve so wanted this manifesto. I’ve not been brave enough to write something myself but mostly I’ve been a little paralysed by my disappointment. (And there is no way I have your knowledge!)
    My Naturopathic husband and I raised 4 kids into their 30’s. No vaccines, no antibiotics ever. All had classic childhood diseases together. It was actually fun times watching movies playing games in our pjs all day. Now naturally immunised for life (unlike the vaccines) from measles, chicken pox, whooping cough, one of the boys had mumps too. It is no coincidence that our children never had the flu while other families seemed to be frequenting the doctors office and constantly drug dependant.
    Anyway, my PB blessing (which I received at 15 years old) specifically states that I should study the WOW out in my mind and use it as I will use it later in my life. Well through divine intervention I married a naturopath and have lived an amazing life. Where in over 35 years he has seen near 70,000 patients in a busy clinic. He has travelled round the world, seeing patients in hospitals or home given up for dead and given life where medical has given up or not had the answers. Created fertility where there was only menopause, halted miscarriage, getting rancid or toxic organs back to good condition, counciling with the gospel framework, but to name a few. Hidden treasures of knowledge have made themselves known through teaching and studying the Word of Wisdom. I could have bought people into the church a hundred times over through the Word of Wisdom. Because patients have been blown away by the knowledge, the results, the connection with God and nature. But, it’s hard to rationalise the disappointments of the inconsistencies with the lack of understanding real healthcare and medical dependence in the church.
    Utah is such a medically dependant state compared with others. So I get the pressure. Professiomal natural health care practitioners are still very limited there in what they can do or in education. It would seem that to study natural or naturopathic medicine within a science degree is unsupported in the LDS universities. Still viewed with a medieval framework- I’m not defending all practises. Or the bullying of bigeted doctors including with the LDS community. However used with the framework of the gospel miracles happen. As promised. LDS have no idea how amazing this knowledge is and how it can give us back our life’s and faith. This is our flag of truth or shield not solely the vaccines. Our missionary unvaccinated son had to have shots to go on a mission. We were told if he didn’t it would affect his call. Well, he of course got the shots (but as a consenting adult) you know I’m going to the same country with no shots. Now that irks me but the bullying does more.
    I just want to thank you for your efforts and the words you have given to those who need your courage and faith.

      You’re very welcome, Gayna. Thank you for your comments. I just got the comment box fixed on the Manifesto page. Feel free to comment there if you would like.
