What is the story behind why we have two Price foundations? What is the difference between the two? http://ppnf.org/ http://www.westonaprice.org/ (more)
I was reading an article on Quackwatch about Weston Price. Here is one quote: Much of "holistic dentistry" is rooted in the activities of Weston A. Price, D.D.S. (1870-1948), a dentist who maintained that sugar causes not only tooth decay but... (more)
I like it because it makes Price human. His observations are interesting but loaded with his Neolithic career path...who but a dentist would fixate on teeth and draw interesting conclusions about sugar from them?
Does anyone here get their raw milk from a farmer in california? Where i live claravale and organic pastures milk in the store in 5 dollars a quart. 20 dollars a gallon... How much do local farmers charge for their milk if you buy it direct from... (more)
Gee, isn't it amazing how these farmers can charge such a high price for something that is so dangerous and doesn't offer any health benefits? They have a lot of nerve. Or the consumers of raw milk have ... something.
Her tirade on her blog seems to paint paleo as a low carb caveman reinactment community. I can understand this from the mainstream nutrition people, but I thought Paleo and WAPF were actually overlapping and cousins so to... (more)
Perhaps some reference to N3/ N6 ratios in nuts for the Paleo column. Maybe mention olive oil (unheated) as a fat in the Paleo column? I personally don't agree with the artifical sweetener comment (people might use them, but they shouldn't). An... (more)
Wasn't at the Ancestral Health Symposium, nor any Weston A. Price conference. If anyone attended both, I wonder which room-full of people looked healthier. I also wonder how the attendees at a Vegan conference would compare (if we're being truly... (more)
Shannon Hayes, Author of The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook is making the jump to Paleo (who raises all sorts of grass-fed meats just to the east of me in Upstate NY http://www.sapbush.com/ ) just posted about making the last jump to paleo for her... (more)
I'm sure you're all aware of this conference. http://blip.tv/weston-a-price-foundation/critique-of-the-2010-usda-dietary-guidelines-with-powerpoint-4879125 I was thinking of sending it to my family (adult sisters and aging parents) to begin to... (more)
An old filling fell out today. There is an obvious hole in my tooth (one of my lower first molars, just back from the canines). It does not hurt - just feels a bit "weird" - like something that I'm used to is missing. According to the Weston A... (more)
I am a dentist. I have no patients who are willing to eat paleo/lc, so I am my only test subject. I have molars whose fillings have fallen out and I've never had them replaced. Bacteria require a coating called a pellicle consisting of protein... (more)
Between 1932 and 1942, Francis M. Pottenger, Jr., M.D., conducted a multi-generation nutrition study on cats with the goal of applying what he learned to human nutrition since cats also have mammalian biology. He published a book... (more)
No, Pottenger's study does not open my mind to raw paleo — partly because my mind wasn't closed to it in the first place, and partly because my favorable opinion of raw foods has nothing to do with Pottenger's study.
A recent post by Primal Parent contained a few statements that piqued my interest. "A carnivorous diet makes me rather Vulcan." And: "Weston Price noted repeatedly that primitive peoples did not “suffer” from a whole lot of emotion." Anyone... (more)
Hello. A lot or some of folks here has the oportunity t travel far away. Do you have seen people with healthy bodies and teeth and healthy satisfied lifes? And balanced lviing. Im very curious what you experienced. Please share here with me or us. (more)
Oh most definitely when I've travelled to the EU I rarely saw anyone overweight, everyone seems to be quite fit and nicely turned out. Walking everywhere, using public transportation, self-service rental bikes - most brilliant idea ever. Portions... (more)
In my humble opinion Weston Price was the first researcher to gather a systematic set of Paleo-ish evidence on how societies'development, through diet, affected human health. His brilliant "Nutrition and Physical degeneration" first published in... (more)
I originally posted this question in the what's so bad about soy thread but upon request I've decided to make it into it's own question. Leo Babauta of Zen Habits just released an article on soy and it's been circulating all around twitter/the... (more)
That sounds like a jokey question, but I'm serious. Although I'm not a follower of WAPF, I was very impressed a few years back when I read Price's "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration," and realized I had been born with or developed nearly all of... (more)
I just discover the Spartan Diet. After i found a place on Mount Athos monestery were the monks seem to live very healthy on a vegan-vegietarian diet. Searching on i found the Spartan Diet. Spartan were a warrior culture. Popular in the Hollywood... (more)
I'm looking for some information on soy from reputable sources. I enjoy reading the Weston Price Foundation's information, but in the mainstream media, they are frequently portrayed as a "dangerous" and "fringe" group that advocates for... (more)
Have you tried http://scholar.google.com ? If any papers interest you post them here and I can get you full text. There are TONS of studies on Soy. IMHO WAPF is more reputable than Mercola. At least WAPF has some scientists working for them.... (more)
After nearly 40 years of SAD eating, I have gone full Paleo close to 3 years. It has resolved many issues: allergies, over-fat, under muscled, flexibility, joint pain, low motility and sperm count, sleep apnea etc. Paleo is some sorta cure all... (more)
From Whole Health Source: http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/2009/12/butyric-acid-ancient-controller-of.html After thinking about it, I've decided that butyrate must have been a principal component of Dr. Weston Price's legendary... (more)
This is a little out of left field, but why have we not seen any babies from a paleo couple that had the full dental arch that Weston Price talks about? Ryan has been posting some very interesting stuff on fixing malocclusion during... (more)
Well I just had a Paleo baby (well my wife did) 5 days ago and his face is definitely wider than both of ours. We'll see how he develops since he'll be eating a 100% Paleo diet ad long as we can control that.
Hi Guys! I am looking for all the hunter gatherer anecdotes of good health, stories, etc that I can get! I will start: Weston Price: Nutrition and Physical Degeneration (Native Indians living inside the Rocky Mountain Range in the far North of... (more)
I always kept my eating pretty straight forward, lump of lean meat into the foreman grill and handful of veg (and a lot of fruit for dessert). However having recently read "Cure Tooth Decay" and "Nourishing Traditions" (Sally Fallon) which are... (more)
