A renowned dentist and researcher, Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS and his wife traveled the world for almost 10 years to discover the secret to health. He didn’t seek only to find those with degenerative disease; he also searched for healthy populations. These travels, studies and observations are carefully documented in his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, published in 1939. He wanted to understand the key to achieving robust health. In his travels which included hundreds of cities in 14 different countries, he visited some of the most remote areas of the world. In those places where populations consumed foods native to their regions, he found perfect dental arches, low incidence of tooth decay, high immunity to tuberculosis and overall excellent health.
When those same groups displaced their traditional diets with the “foods of commerce” as he called them – white sugar, white flour, refined vegetable oils and canned products – he observed marked signs degeneration: crooked teeth, dental caries, deformed jaw structures, arthritis and reduced immunity to tuberculosis became apparent and rampant in a relatively short span of time.
This ancestral wisdom was carefully documented by Dr. Price with photographs, observations, laboratory analysis and more.
