In February 1930, Dr. Weston A. Price addressed a meeting of the Cleveland Homeopathic Medical Society on the relationship between nutrition and disease. His speech attracted so much interest that he was asked to write the following article, which was published in the magazine Your Health in March of that same year. Dr. Price’s article could well be a contemporary commentary on the seasonal illness cycle sweeping many of our communities today.
The lack of adequate nutrients such as vitamin D, vitamin A, and other immune-protective substances, as well as the pervasive use of sugar and refined carbohydrates in the standard American diet, contribute greatly to our susceptibility to disease, as was obvious to Dr. Price. An interesting parallel is drawn by Dr. Steven Lin in his new book The Dental Diet, in regard to the causes of dental caries and coronary heart disease (see “Balance Your Oral Microbiome for Better Health and Immunity” in this issue).
