Nutrition and Physical Degeneration: A Comparison of Primitive and Modern Diets and Their Effects
By Weston Price
Nutrition and Physical Degeneration discusses Weston Price’s observation that diseases endemic to Western cultures were rarely present in non-Western cultures, and that as they abandoned indigenous diets and adopted Western patterns of living, these groups showed increases in typical Western diseases.
