Nutrition and Physical Degeneration

The classic book by Dr. Weston A. Price, the first book I read as I started to study nutrition, which brought on my observation: “They knew this in the 1930’s!”  What did they know?  That our modern Western diet was causing increases in all forms of disease and ultimately killing us.  This book details Dr. Price’s world travels where he visited “primitive” people who for some strange reason were perfectly healthy and had perfect teeth.  You see, Dr. Price was a dentist, and he was wondering why he was seeing a big increase in cavities (the most basic disease) along with crooked teeth and not enough space for teeth to come in (perhaps why Orthodontics is so prevalent today).  Dr. Price tells us what they were eating, why it is healthy, and surpirse – that it is quite different than the modern diet.
