About the Author
In his classical experiments in cat feeding, more than 900 cats were studied over 10 years. Dr. Pottenger found that only diets containing raw milk and raw meat produced optimal health: good bone structure and density, wide palates with plenty of space for teeth, shiny fur, no parasites or disease, reproductive ease and gentleness.
Cooking the meat or substituting heat-processed milk for raw resulted in heterogeneous reproduction and physical degeneration, increasing with each generation. Vermin and parasites abounded. Skin diseases and allergies increased from 5% to over 90%. Bones became soft and pliable. Cats suffered from adverse personality changes, hypothyroidism and most of the degenerative diseases encountered in human medicine. They died out completely by the fourth generation.
The changes Pottenger observed in cats on the deficient diets paralleled the human degeneration that Dr. Price found in tribes that had abandoned traditional diets.

This was science that could still be trusted before industry interests took over.
The binding needs improvement, some of the pages are lose already.
Top reviews from other countries
As a final year student in BSc Animal Science this resource has been a valuable alternative to second-hand reviews of Pottenger's experiments. There is truly no replacement for the experimenter's own interpretations, especially with this experiment - as many authors have twisted Pottenger's words, and misquoted results.
But, of course, this is not for the lay person, and requires some former knowledge of nutrition.
And on top of that every pet owner could learn tons from it as well.
