Dr. Weston A. Price’s story illustrates in an unforgettable way the physical degeneration that occurs when humans abandon nourishing traditional diets in favor of modern convenience foods. This parallels the changes Dr. Pottenger observed in cats on deficient diets.
Weston A. Price, DDS and his wife traveled around the world over 10 years in each of the secret to health. Instead of looking at people afflicted with disease, this highly-respected dentist and dental researcher chose to focus on healthy individuals. Dr. Price traveled to hundreds of cities in 14 countries in remote areas of the world in his search to find healthy people. He observed perfect dental arches, minimal tooth decay high immunity to tuberculosis and overall excellent health in those groups of people who ate their indigenous foods. He found when these people were introduced to modernized foods, such as white flour, white sugar, refined vegetable oils and canned goods, signs of degeneration quick became quite evident. Dental caries, deformed jaw structures, crooked teeth, arthritis and a low immunity to tuberculosis became rampant amongst them. Dr. Price documented this ancestral wisdom - including hundreds of photos - in his book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.
Francis M. Pottenger, Jr., MD was dedicated to the cause of preventing chronic illness. In his classic experiments in cat feeding, more than 900 cats were studied over ten years. Dr. Pottenger found only diets containing raw milk and raw meat produced optimal health: good bone structure, wide palates with plenty of space for teeth, shiny fur, no parasites or disease, reproductive ease and gentleness. Cooking the meat of substituting heat processed milk for raw resulted in 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. The third generation did not live long enough to reproduce. In his book, Pottenger's Cats: A Study In Nutrition, Dr. Pottenger tells the definitive story of how processing and heat can damage both food and the health of those consuming it.
The Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation has been teaching people how to attain optimal health for over 60 years. Our mission is to educate people on the remarkable benefits of a natural plant- and animal-based diet and inspire individuals to live a healthy lifestyle.
