Nutrition and Physical Degradation (book review)

Dr. Price was a retired dentist who toured the world for a few years to find out why some native people escaped tooth and bone problems, including crooked teeth. His conclusion was that it had to do with eating nutrient rich food (not the calorie rich food of the modern diet). Whether this is the case or not may be disputable. What is not disputable is the fact that teeth and bone problems developed within a generation of modern food becoming available to the natives, which can be readily seen in the numerous pictures taken by Price. My own conclusion is that eating a diet of only nutrient rich food, as FRESH as possible, will produce the healthful results observed by Dr. Price, especially, if practiced from birth (and practiced by the parents before engendering children).
