Nutrition and Physical Degeneration

A Comparison of Primitive and Modern Diets and Their Effects

by Weston Price

Nutrition and Physical Degeneration is the seminal work upon which the Weston Price Foundation’s philosophy of traditional properly prepared nutrient dense foods is based. This book details Dr. Weston Price’s world travels to identify the factors leading to good health, good physique, and good teeth and those factors leading to tooth decay, dental/facial and other physical deformities, and ill health. With many photos of indigenous and native peoples nourished on their traditional diets alongside their offspring and other tribe members who began eating a westernized diet, the difference is startling. For anyone who wants to understand why it is important to eat a traditional diet which includes meat, full fat dairy, animal fats and other healthy natural fats, fermented foods, and soaked grains, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration is a must read.
