"Circling the world in the 1920s and '30s, Dr. Price and his wife found the same sinister pattern amoung '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...An unequaled source of basic information"-from back cover. "An absolutely basic book on nutrition and disease prevention, as relevant today as when first published, decades ahead of its time."-Jonathan V. Wright, M.D. This is a brand new, unread copy.
