Now I’ll take you back to a story that was
told many times by my grandmother. She was, she was sent when she was 6 years old to Arnprior
to be with the McLaughlin millionaires and she spent several years in South America with
the McLaughlin’s. And she talked about a place there where they cured TB. Because when I
grew up TB was still, they started testing the school’s in 1938. A lot people had TB
here in this area and especially French Canadians and Indians. OK. And I can remember now grandmother talking
about where they lived in South America there was some kind of a religious home run by priests
and one of the things that they did, that they used, was the hemp seed. And that was,
like fermented into a milk. Well, it had to, it was put in like, almost like into a vacuum.
She said sealed off until the water put in and then you had to drink this milk. OK. But
it was so strong that you had to suck it with a straw. And the pulp of that was taken out
that was dried like a cereal and you ate that for bulk and that cured TB. And I can remember
because Henry Getz, 1939 he was a school teacher. He was first cousin of my dad’s and he was
diagnosed with TB. And I can remember grandma talking to my dad about it, if they could
get this cure, Henry wouldn’t have to go to a sanitarium for a couple of years and my
grandmother talked about that all the time.
