Conclusions from Weston A. Price

Across the world, Dr. Price witnessed the same story being told again and again. Groups of people who avoided modern foods made from sugar and white flour were able to maintain the optimized health of their ancestors. These people were uniformly robust and strong, with wide dental arches that adequately housed all of their teeth, allowing them to grow in straight without orthodontic assistance. Their lack of cavities ensured they enjoyed good dental health for life.

Around the World with Weston A. Price

Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS, traveled the world in search of the perfect diet in the 1930’s. His expedition was part nutritional, part dental and part anthropological. He was growing concerned with the increase in dental issues among his American patients - including cavities, crooked teeth, and poorly formed arches - and was suspicious of the role a diet high in refined white flour and sugar might be playing in these issues. Over his tour of five continents, his main objective was to observe the health and diet of those living in isolated communities, away from the “foods of commerce”, who maintained the traditional food ways of their respective cultures. What he found was incredible variety of foods, but consistent standards of health and vitality.
