"Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" cuts through the confusion with devastatingly simple logic: Price found the healthiest cultures in the world, and recorded what they were doing. It's as simple as that.
For those who are concerned with the credibility of the book, I'll mention that it's very consistent with what anthropologists and field physicians were saying at the time. Price also published many of his findings in respected peer-reviewed journals like JAMA and JADA during his lifetime. His genius was in consolidating information from many different cultures and examining what they had in common. Modern Western food habits have left a trail of destruction throughout the world, and it was painfully obvious to anyone observing a transition from traditional foods to industrially processed Western foods.
Price and other groups of researchers have shown that modern degenerative disease is caused by a modern diet. Learn how to be healthy by reading one of the most important and most overlooked pieces of health research ever published.
I fear that is the only way we can get past our current culture obsessed with lowfat oversugared fake food.
This book changed my life and the life of my son. In a time where vegetables-lowfat-tofu eating dietary principles are held up as the answer to health we are eating beef liver and cod liver oil, pastured meat and eggs, wild seafoods and raw grassfed milk, butter and cream, bone broths, soaked grains and nuts and fermented vegetables to try to achieve the 10x the RDA of fat soluble vitamins and 5x the RDA of minerals and water soluble vitamins that protected people around the globe from disease and enabled them to achieve their full genetic potential (ie. the wide palates, model cheekbones and manly square jaws!)
I already know the 3 years following the principles in this book and the WAP Foundation has helped my son as his palate his widened and tooth spacing increased from age 2 to age 5. I'm excited to see if his secondary teeth will come in straight and avoid braces like I had!
Price was a DDS who was the head of research for the ADA of his day... someone very learned with the scientific method. His ten years of travelling the globe has given us most vital information on a natural human diet and how this relates to health and the growth of a child most especially.
I constantly look around me everyday and see the result of modern processed food: the weak chins, narrow palates, crowded teeth, narrow nostrils, "deviated septums" and underdeveloped faces. This is NOT a results of genetics, is is a result of your diet!! That is mind blowing!!Read more ›
Price examines primitive cultures to see what they eat and what are the results. The healthiest cultures ate no modern "foods of commerce", but ate primarily meat, some dairy, some tubers, and even blood. People that had begun to eat modern food were riddled with cavitations and crowded teeth. Price actually set out to prove that a vegetarian diet was the best, and he was sorely disappointed to find out how necessary animal products were. Once he made this discovery he immediately informed his family and the public of his findings instead of trying to peddle vegan propaganda like some authors do.
