Dr. Dan discusses dietary theories from Weston A. Price, who was a dentist in the 1930's who wondered why we started getting cavities in children when we never did before.  He decided to travel the world to cultures untouched by civilization and study them.  He wanted to discover the factors responsible for good dental health.  He was amazed when he found out that these societies not only had healthy teeth, but diabetes, heart disease and cancer were basically non-existent.  He realized that the foods that these groups were eating had at least 4 times the amount of water-soluble vitamins and 10 times the fat soluble vitamins vs. the American diet of the time.  They were eating lots of butter, fish eggs, organ meats, eggs and animal fats.
