When Plants Attack: Lectins, Phytates and Oxalates

Of all the nutritional recommendations that are passed around, eating more fruits and vegetables seems like a tip that should be universally good for everyone. Like every guideline, even this one has caveats. Many plant foods contain compounds that are irritating to our digestive system, immune system, and even nervous system. These compounds can cause certain plant foods to do more harm than good. In some cases, proper preparation of the foods can mitigate the ill effects of the compounds, but in other cases, the foods should be avoided in their entirety.

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.

In his American dental practice, he became increasingly concerned with the dental issues that his modernized, American patients were experiencing. Multiple cavities, crooked teeth and narrow dental arches required dental intervention, but he was sure this was not a normal state of human health.

The solution to government run health care for all of America is right under the noses of congress. Congress says it wants the best medical program for America that can be delivered.
