More About This Textbook


Circling the world in the 1920s and '30s, Dr. Price and his wife found the same sinister pattern among "primitive" populations, whether isolated Irish fishermen, tribal Africans, Pacific Islanders, Eskimos, North and South American Indians or Australian Aborigines. Those groups that followed their traditional nature-based diets enjoyed good health and vigor, and those that turned to the "civilized" diet of processed, sugar-laden foods soon developed a variety of ills, including misshapen bones and teeth - and the situation worsened with each generation. Dr. Price's fascinating accounts of his discoveries, and the extensive photo documentation he provides, drive home the nutritional truths that are only now gaining general understanding, and Nutrition and Physical Degeneration remains an unequaled source of basic information.

    Excellent Book

    I have been reading about nutrition and health for 30 years. If someone wants to read only one book in that category, this is it. Dr. Price's research shows what the cause of most disease (cancer, diabetes, depression, heart disease, cavities, narrow arches etc) is. The solution won't be popular, but it is simple (though not easy in our culture). Buy this book and loan it out to all your family and friends. It will be the best health/nutrition advice you can get.
