Off Topic / We want to live website

If you go to the we want to live website there are some paywalls so you can't read articles that interest you. Now that Aajonus is dead, I'm curious who owns the site and is benefiting from his work.

Science / Raw Ostrich Liver and Meningitis
« on: July 02, 2019, 08:38:28 pm »

I hope the site allows me to post this link to "Meningitis by Toxocara canis after ingestion of Raw Ostrich Liver" appearing in the Journal of Korean Medical Science.  (Evil site would not allow me to post this with the link, so just do a google search for it.)

Really interesting - mom and dad and their son all ate raw ostrich liver (presumably from the ostrich farm that the parents run).  The parents did not get sick but the son did.  However, the parents blood serum showed an antigen to T. canis despite their being symptom-free.

So this is supporting the idea that just because a virus/bacteria/parasite is present, it doesn't necessarily cause disease.  If it did, then the parents would also be sick. 

Any ideas why two people would have the parasite and not get sick while the son got sick? 

It makes me think of the Herpes virus.  I think that almost everyone has the Herpes 1 infection (cold sores) but most of the time everyone lives with it symptom free.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / New and Concerns

I've read the posts that say parasites are good and they are only in the bodies of people who don't eat a healthy raw diet.
So what if you haven't been eating a healthy raw diet and want to start eating some raw foods?  Will you get parasites because you didn't eat healthy before? 
I know some have gotten sick from eating raw meats in the beginning.
