In the 1930’s, Dr. Weston Price, DDS, studied indigenous people all over the world. He documented the degenerative effects of commercial foods as some in the community moved away from the traditional natural diet to adopt the use of store bought food.

Dr. Francis Pottenger, MD, aware of Price’s work, conducted a study on the stray cats that had been left at the tuberculosis sanitarium he ran. He divided the cats into groups feeding each a different mixture of foods. The testing showed that the more denatured the food, the more deterioration there was in the cats and their offspring. 

In both cases it was clear that processed, chemically-tainted, commercially-grown foods caused degeneration and disease due to a reduction in nutrition and an increase in toxins.
