Ancestral Nutrition 2/6
In the late 1920s a Cleveland dentist named Weston A. Price was disturbed by what he found when he looked into the mouths of his patients. In adults he found rampant tooth decay, often accompanied by serious illnesses elsewhere in the body.
Price heard that inhabitants who living in the primitive areas on earth didn’t suffer from these problems. Over the next 10 years he traveled the world studying the health and diets of traditional people.
In communities that ate a traditional food Price found the inhabitants had straight, white, and strong teeth and were physically healthy. In the more modernized communities where the inhabitants ate processed food Price found dental decay and degenerative diseases.
When Price examined food samples in his laboratory he was surprised to find that these foods were high in the fat-soluble vitamins A, D and K2 that are only found in animal fats.
To Dr. Price, the biggest problem with modern food is that the fat-soluble vitamins have gradually been replaced with vegetable oils and artificial additives. We have become overfed and undernourished by consuming what Price called “the impoverished foods of civilization.”
