(Book) Nutrition and Physical Degeneration - Weston Price

I picked up a copy of this book, which seems to be the original, modern paleo-style research (early/mid 1900's) but takes a much more scientific approach than most nutrition books. I was wondering if anyone else has dived into this and their thoughts.

Re: (Book) Nutrition and Physical Degeneration - Weston Price

This is one of the most enlightening books I've ever read, and really helped shape my perceptions of health, the Paleo/Primal lifestyle (which I follow), and many of the modern scourges we see today.

While I don't agree with everything in each camp (I just blogged about this, btw) I do deeply respect the work of the Weston A. Price foundation. I'm a member and have found them to have a vast network of resources and knowledge. They are already leaders in many aspects - local farming, sustainable agriculture, nourishing fats - that the Paleo/Primal camp are starting to take up as well.

Ditto. WAPF has been the largest single impact on our family's eating for the last few years.

Re: (Book) Nutrition and Physical Degeneration - Weston Price

The pictures in the book are quite illustrative of the differences in facial structure and teeth between the traditional food eaters and the modern food eaters. It's the book I use to show people the detrimental effects of modern bread / sugar / food on physical appearance. I think it's the only book which has pictures like that.

The website which Tom Jones Jr posted has other free books, some of which I found just as interesting:
- The Wheel of Health
- Nutrition and Health
