Going beyond the standard dietary recommendations lies a vast area of information and research that has led me to rethink the concept of healthy nutrition based on the work of Dr. Weston A. Price, an American dentist from the 1930s.
In his quest to discover reasons for tooth decay, Dr. Price travelled the world and studied groups of isolated communities worldwide who enjoyed excellent dental health.
Although the nonindustrialized peoples he studied came from different geographical regions, they all had the following in common:
- Traditional diet of indigenous foods
- Long, healthy lives
- No chronic illness, obesity, infertility, or birth defects
- Strong bones and straight teeth (including no cavities)
