It is with a very heavy heart that I announce to the Health Impact News readership the physical death of John P. Thomas, who died this week in Maine.

John was my top investigative reporter for many years, and some of his investigative work was so comprehensive and powerful, that we published several eBooks on the topics he covered.

His writing has literally reached many millions of people around the world for the past decade, and for a limited time we are offering all of his eBooks in my online store for free download.

They include:

John P. Thomas began writing for Health Impact News in 2014, and while millions of people are familiar with his work for the past decade, only a handful of people knew the whole story about the life of John P. Thomas, because that’s the way John wanted it.

John wanted people to know him for his work, and so in his bio we never mentioned that John was totally blind, and handicapped with years of suffering from environmental illnesses, illnesses that the modern medical system has no cures for, because for the most part the medical system refuses to even admit they exist.

And while John P. Thomas began writing for me in 2014, he actually began working for me in 2006, almost 8 years earlier, in my ecommerce store Healthy Traditions.

Like so many of us who live in the Truth and seek to expose the lies of our culture, especially the lies published and practiced by the evil medical cartel that runs this country, John P. Thomas died mostly alone this past week, with only his loving and long-time wife by his side.

John’s writing and his willingness to count the cost to publish the Truth, made him mostly an outcast among his family and friends, and his wife Kathleen told me yesterday that she only expects a few people to show up for his funeral next week.

THIS is the kind of life that all of us who serve our Lord and King Jesus Christ, rather than the multitude of idols in modern society powered by Satan, can expect when we don’t back down to Satan’s attacks.

So if you have been blessed in the past by the writings of John P. Thomas, please take a few minutes to write something in the comments for his surviving widow, Kathleen, as she herself also suffers from years of environmental illnesses, and now must continue her battle without John.

John P. Thomas – Working for Tropical Traditions

I first met John in 2006, when he applied for a job advertisement we had published to add new customer service representatives to our growing online ecommerce business, which was named Tropical Traditions at that time.

We never outsourced our customer service team from places like India or the Philippines, as many other ecommerce businesses were doing in those days, as we had a very intensive training program for our customer service reps, because our main product was Virgin Coconut Oil, a product that the U.S. Government said was unhealthy.

I had spent years publishing evidence, much of it in the peer-reviewed medical literature, that proved the government was wrong, and that the only reason the U.S. Government condemned coconut oil was because it competed with the cheaper, mass produced vegetable oils derived from soybeans and corn in the U.S., which were heavily subsidized crops that were also becoming more and more GMO and more toxic for human health.

The FDA came after us strong in 2005, trying to shut us down, but we hired a Washington D.C. regulatory attorney who had previously litigated against the FDA, and learned how to separate the science and testimonials regarding the health benefits of coconut oil to other websites where we did not sell the product.

So our customer service reps had to be specially trained to make sure they did not make any health or disease claims for our products, while still answering customer questions, since coconut oil had not been a main part of the American diet for many years, mostly prior to WW II, and Americans had no idea how to use it.

Someone else interviewed John first, then recommended that I interview him. John was a customer of Tropical Traditions, having battled environmental illnesses, along with his wife, for many years.

Before the end of the interview (which was done remotely, not in person), John told me he was totally blind, but that if we decided to hire him, he did not want the other people working in customer service with him to know that fact.

He wanted a chance to pull his own weight without being treated as a handicapped person.

So we hired him, and we did not tell anyone in the customer service department that he was blind, not even the customer service manager.

John’s performance was excellent, and at the end of his probation period, we asked the customer service manager to evaluate his performance.

She rated him very high on accuracy and his professionalism in handling customers, but added that he was a bit slower than the other customer service reps.

So we explained to her that John was actually blind, and needed special equipment on his computer to translate everything to speech, which was why he was probably a bit slower than the others.

She was shocked, but kept his handicap secret from the rest of the workers.

Meeting John P. Thomas Face to Face at a Leadership Conference

In 2014, while my family and I were living in a suburb of Austin, Texas, we planned a leadership conference at a nearby resort, so that we could all meet each other face-to-face since we all worked remotely online, all over the U.S. in every time zone.

We invited not only our management team, but other team members who showed potential to move up into management.

Our customer service manager at the time mentioned that we might want to bring John Thomas to the conference, as she felt that he was being under-utilized due to his extensive knowledge and skills.

John was well educated, having earned a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Michigan, and a Master of Science in Public Health (M.S.P.H.) from the School of Public Health, Department of Health Administration, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – all as a blind man, because he lost his eyesight while still a child.

But the years of battling environmental illnesses had taken a huge toll on his health, and doing work at home from his computer is what suited him best at that time.

He was already an incredible researcher, having had to do his own research on his own health challenges over the years, and he had written about some of his work that I was already familiar with.

Writing for Health Impact News

I had started Health Impact News in 2011, and was always on the lookout for good writers, so I decided to try him and assigned his first research project that I knew he was knowledgeable about: Toxic fragrances.

He titled it: Secondhand Fragrance Contamination: A Public Health Problem

(Please note: many of the older articles on our site no longer have view counts because we have upgraded the site so often, and it has been several years now since we stopped using the intrusive Google Analytics program.)

I was shocked at how prevalent this problem of secondhand fragrance contamination was, affecting up to 30% of the population!

John quickly became my top researcher and writer at Health Impact News, although he only published a few articles a year, because he did original research, not just reading stuff off the Internet.

He has interviewed some of the top names in the Alternative Health community over the years, all from his home while the people he interviewed never knew about his handicap.

His work was so thorough, that it usually resulted in a series of articles, many that we have now published as eBooks.

John P. Thomas is, hands down, the best reporter and researcher that I have ever worked with. He became one of my only full-time writers on Health Impact News, and I usually gave him the toughest subjects, because I could rely on him to do a thorough investigation and find out the truth.

He did a lot of research on glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp, the world’s most prevalent herbicide and now known to cause cancer. He interviewed others knowledgeable on this topic during that time, such as Dr. Don Huber. See:

Is Glyphosate Responsible for your Health Problems?

In the Fall of 2014 I began the website, and I assigned John the topic of researching just how the U.S. Government was using children from the foster care system to do drug research on, and that became one of our foundational articles for

Medical Kidnapping in the U.S. – Kidnapping Children for Drug Trials

John was also an expert on vaccines and the damages caused by vaccines, and he wrote several articles on how some alternative health professionals were actually healing children with vaccine injuries, since the corporate medical system denied these injuries. He interviewed many health professionals in the alternative health field, including many who practiced homeopathy and were seeing great success in treating vaccine injuries.

One of his most explosive and controversial topics that he published several articles on was based on his interview of Kerri Rivera, who was healing autism with her Chlorine Dioxide Protocol. This information went viral, prompting attacks from the corporate media to try and discredit her, and using child protective services to try and medically kidnap children from parents who were not following mainstream medicine with their children’s vaccine injuries.

Autism can be Cured – How to use the Chlorine Dioxide Protocol to Recover Broken Lives

John also did a series of articles showing how the modern trends in the medical industry were following the same science that was used in Germany for eugenics, and how all of this “science” was still being used here in the U.S. where the presupposition for many pharmaceutical companies developing drugs is based on the junk science of “gene research.”

Mapping the Genome and Modern Genetics: Eugenics Repackaged for Modern Times

While John was researching vaccine injuries, he became concerned that the work of the late Dr. Andrew Moulden was being scrubbed from the Internet, so he produced several articles on his work, interviewing many of the parents and others who had worked with Dr. Moulden, who was one of the first people to ever testify in a court of law that the junk science of “Shaken Baby Syndrome” was being applied wrongly to vaccine injuries.

This is among some of John’s best scholarship, and we seldom discount the eBook we made from that research, but I am offering it free for a while as we celebrate John’s life and work at Health Impact News.

In 2016 I met one of the top American legal minds of our day and age in Los Angeles, Dr. Richard I. Fine, who lost his career and was unjustly put in prison for 18 months as a political prisoner, even though he was never even charged with a crime.

I wanted his story to be exposed to the public, and I assigned it to my best writer and researcher, John P. Thomas who wrote several articles about Dr. Fine and the corruption in America’s judiciary.

American Judicial System for Sale: Bribes and Corruption now the Norm

Also, while the COVID psyop of 2020 is still fresh in all of our minds, few probably remember that the exact same playbook used to deceive people over COVID was also used in 2016 over the fake “Zika” scare, and John Thomas was probably the top writer in the country exposing that scam in 2016.

Zika: A Masterpiece of Public Mind Control

Zika: A Real Threat or Another Hoax to Promote Medical Tyranny?

Are we All Being Forced onto a Passenger Train Named Zika?

Will the U.S. Congress Gift over $1 Billion to Big Pharma on False Zika Epidemic?

Millions of Bees Dead from Zika Spraying – Nation’s Food System in Great Peril

Zika eventually faded away from the limelight in the public, but that groundwork of deception used by the Government and the medical system came out in full force during COVID in 2020, but those of us who had seen this movie play before, were not fooled.

Celebrating the Life of John P. Thomas

John’s life continued to be difficult the past few years, preventing him from doing much writing. He suffered a stroke last year, and ended up for a while in an assisted living center, until he could return home to his wife who also faces many health challenges.

John also wrote many articles exposing pedophilia among America’s clergy, and I referenced the fine work he did on exposing the Catholic Pedophile priests in an article I published last week:

Catholic Churches Going Bankrupt as Families Abandon the Church to Protect their Children from Pedophile Priests

Every day since I wrote that article I have been meaning to send John an email thanking him for the very fine work he did in the past exposing not only pedophile priests, but also Baptist pastors.

But as usual, every time I went to my computer, I was confronted by a myriad of issues I have to deal with on a daily basis, and it pushed the idea of emailing John out of mind.

When I received his wife’s email two days ago informing me that John had died, I was devastated.

I feel so bad that so few will show up to John’s funeral next week, that all I can do is memorialize John’s life with this article, and offer all of his eBooks for free right now.

I am asking that all of you who either knew John or have benefited from his writings over the past decade, to please leave a kind comment on this article so his widow can know that this man was dearly loved and appreciated, even if his own family and friends have rejected him, as I know that many of you reading this know exactly how that feels.

Thank you. Brian
