More Thoughts On Nutritional Extremes

During the week I was reminded of the Weston Price Foundation.  Dr. Price was a dentist who spent vacations traveling to remote areas of the world to study "native" people with fabulous teeth.  Over and over he encountered people with great teeth and no dental care.  He compiled a list of characteristics of traditional diets, which included traditional ways of preparing foods, making foods that were very bioavailable and enzymatically nutritious.  

Some of the other blogs were very harsh on our own society's lack of control, focusing on our tendency to overindulge.  And yet, we are a society that often seems to embrace the very worst of our culture's  inventions, enslaving us rather than releasing us.  I have found my own difficulties in making my way - finding sources of raw milk, organic foods, wheat-free food choices, or even cheap options for clothing that doesn't involve Wal-Mart...
