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?

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.
