Here's A Question For You, Dr. Charles And Other Bigfoot Researcher

Why doesn't Bigfoot fall victim to plagues,
epidemics, inter-species affecting filoviruses,
simian hemorrhagic fever, etc.? Diseases that would totally wipe out a group of them in an area, leaving
their carcasses available for discovery.
Take rabies for instance. Surely, Bigfoot in the course
of obtaining food, must have some contact with rabid animals, every once in a while, and should be infected
with the virus. And then pass that virus on to other
members of the group, resulting in deaths.
And yet, this doesn't seem to be the case.
Somehow Bigfoot avoids diseases that other members of the Primate order contract and die from, leaving mortaury evidence behind.
there hasn't been evidence left behind.
Only to lay waste until mother nature removes it from view.
Rodent colonies are a good example.
Often their colonies are diseased until eradication is achieved naturally. Without outside influence.
Still not much evidence remains...visually.
Those mildly afflicted will journey on...
the remains of the dead last no time at all.
Perhaps Bigfoot through his selection of natural foods has learned (I say that loosely)that certain plants or herbs protect his health. Being isolated certain strains of disease or viral would not be introduced into the colony or family unit.
Have you ever found death in the woods?
Oh you are in Boston. Sorry.
Most animals that die in the deep woods leave little evidence behind given time. Mother nature reclaims all.
How many folks do you know trained to enter the woods and look only for DEATH?
Even seasoned hunters sometimes walk past carcass piles because only a few fragments or bones remain.
Mother Nature and her cast of characters LIVE ON!
Good Question......But there's really no EXACT answer.
I think the major advantage these critters have is that they are in sort of family groups, troops, pods, what ever you want to call them. They are creatures of habit in that they have a 'territory' that remains about the same year after year. It is according to the food supply through out the year as to the actual size of this territory. This probably insulates them from plagues. However, research last winter on some fecal matter indicated a juvenile was infected with a virus. Now the question is did he survive, and does the lore of the BF include medicinal plants we do not know of that helps them remain healthy and kill off viral infections. We will probably find out this winter if the juvenile survived. But the answer to the second question may never be determined.
Your knowledge is outstanding. As for Robert's question, he has a valid point...being trained to go into the woods and look only for evidence of death. I know my "training" in the woods is to look for old bottles and other artifacts after a flood, and I once found an old, small, greenish bottle dated 1852, some sort of "jaundice bitters" that probably contained opiates and/or alcohol. It wouldn't cured the jaundice but would sure have made the patient forget about it! :D
certain animal species have natural immunities to all sorts of diseases,cancer,etc.
sharks dont get cancer,komodo dragons are immune to every type of disease known,and they are a carrier of at least 60 known types of bacteria,"which by the way" they use as a means of killing thier prey.
bigfoot could be the cure for cancer,and other harmful things that attack the human body.
and for this reason,bigfoot should be taken very serious-and thought about being captured alive,for the sake of science trying to solve its many mysterys.
Glad to see you over here! AFA your comment goes, I didn't know that cattle, dogs and cats can get cancer, thought I know apes and monkeys can. But my vet said yes, they do. We don't know if BF ever get cancer or not. But with all the widespread pollution of air and habitat for us and them alike, I would imagine that if they can get cancer, they do, and more than ever, just like us. I'm so glad I sent you the URL to hear as you're a wonderful researcher and friend. AND born in Texas, lived in Oklahoma, knew some of my Sooner family--what more could anyone want? :D
most animals get cancer and other ailments like humans do

all domestic and livestock animals can get cancer or other things that hurt humans as well.
i know from one serious of reports about a old bigfoot being seen near a logging camp in canada,that they get crippled with age,and dont move around as well as can be expected with all forms of animal life.
bigfoot does get the case of the runs,and gets sick from eating food that isnt kosher with its digestive system.
but what gets me,is how it can be shot and still walk away and heal very well.
could have strong anti bodies in its system to fight off staff infections and other nasty sorts.
the healing rate in bigfoot seems to be very fast and from what has been found in footprints that show a bigfoot being crippled at some point in its life,leaves to reason that its blood has a high calcium intake.
broken bones could heal rappidly from the strong anti-bodies and calcium in the blood.
one question is to where bigfoot gets the calcium,might be from fish bones or other animal bones,"or" from eating certain water fowl,such as clams,crayfish,etc.
a high intake of iron will keep its blood clean and healthy,and eating a lot of deer meat will do this real well.
deer meat is fat free,and is the best meat in the world for anyone to eat. highly recommended by doctors for this reason.
here's some possible answers. First, medical science first discovered a virus in 1912 that caused cancer in chickens. Because of my wife's health problems I got into the study of virus back in the latter 1980's. The American Cancer Society in their 1996 booklet, the 1998, the 2001 and the 2002 booklets all admit there are the major causes of cancer - virus, chemicals and radiation. Right here, if you compare environments, is the reason why sharks do not get cancer! Virus, chemicals are too diluted in the ocean so the chances of a shark becoming infected are astronomically low. I am not willing to say no shark has ever had cancer.
I think for our health's sake we need to really look close at practices being forced on us by well meaning but ignorant legislators - like forced immunization. The odds of several live virus strains placed into one container, put into one needle and injected into our bodies is like playing Russian Roulette with 5 loaded cyclinders. This is being forced on parents. But science proved the effacy of homeopathic products to kill viruses way back in the flu epidemic prior to 1920. So if we really want to get rid of all bad virus strains, we ought to kill them, not make some witches brew of multiple strains and give them to our selves. You are probably right that there are plants we do not know of that is very beneficial for health purposes. But until we catch a BF and teach him/her to talk we'll have to stick with Native American wisdom and that of early settlers. Charles Hallmark
