Why You Need It
A landmark book on nutrition and disease prevention, as relevant today as when first published, decades ahead of its time.
This book distills the research of Weston A. Price, a dentist and independent nutrition researcher. In a decade of travel around the world, Dr. Price and his wife studied the health, dietary habits and chemical composition of food of dozens of traditional peoples of various racial backgrounds. Their many photos clearly illustrate their findings. His research was done at a time when many such groups still lived free of the influence of Western civilization and what he called "foods of commerce," i.e. heavily refined and denatured foods.
Dr. Price looked at the traditional diets of these peoples and what happened when they adopted Western diets. While others have followed his work, the changing nature of the world now make it impossible to duplicate his research today. His work stands as a pivotal piece in science and health as well as in history. This represents the cumulative knowledge of millions of people over thousands of years in a laboratory that includes the entire world.
Not a light reading book, but well worth the effort.
