Nutrition and physical degeneration by Understanding Hinduism

 

"The differences between the modern white civilisations and many of the primitive groups is interesting. Criminal tendencies in isolated primitives are so slight that no prisons are required." - Weston A.Price D.D.S.

"Among primitive races living in a primitive state childbirth was very simple and rapid process, accompanied by little fear or apprehension ; whereas, in the modernised descendants, even in the first and second generations of those individuals born to parents after they had adopted the foods of modern white civilisations, serious trouble was often experienced." 
   -Weston A.Price D.D.S.

 

It has long been known that primitive people, prior to their contacts with civilisation, had excellent teeth. It also has been established that teeth are a valuable indicator of general physical condition: excellent teeth and excellent general physique go hand in hand. Unfortunately, the converse of this is also true.

The curse of civilisation - modern food refinement - is the chief offender. In addition any deviation in living or eating pattern interfering with a harmonious degree of body metabolism contributes to the decay found in our buccal cavities.

The great American scientist, Dr.Weston A. Price, had an extensive dental practice in Cleveland, Ohio,(USA). He became tired of trying to remove a symptom by treating sick teeth from the outside.While his colleagues were experimenting with new methods for controlling dental caries, Dr.Price was conducting research to learn why the primitive had such good teeth, and how this knowledge could benefit his civilised brother.

At the age of sixty, with great enthusiasm, the dentist explorer went around the world. By planes, ships, and by car, on horse back and on foot, the untiring gatherer of facts amassed a tremendous volume of evidence to demonstrate what happens when primitive people adopt the white man's diet. The evidence was shocking but irrefutable.

He investigated groups all over the world; in the Swiss Alps, New Hebrides, Australia, Alaska, South America, Africa, among others. The climates, people and even the diets varied, but all shared one thing - excellent nutrition. These people, drawing from the sources nature provided, instinctively supplied all their body needs-just as did the Hunzas.

Through laboratory analysis, Dr. Price discovered that although the foods varied according to the area, the total intake of vitamins and minerals was nearly identical. These admirable physical specimens possessed unbelievable endurance, and cheerful, even dispositions; their jaws were wide and well developed, and their teeth stayed free from tooth Decay, just as their bodies remained free of disease; cancer, tuberculosis, high blood pressure, kidney and heart diseases, polio, cerebral palsy and other degenerative diseases were non-existent. Every mother nursed her baby; a non-functional breast was unheard of. Mental health was as high as physical health.

Isolated tribes were visited where all members had perfectly sound mouth structures. As long as the tribe would continue their established eating and living pattern, there would be no tooth problem- with even the oldest members having full sets of teeth with barely a single cavity.

In every instance, Dr. Price was able to compare his people with people living nearby of the same racial stock; sometimes the healthy specimens could be compared to their offspring who had been exposed to the city. Man's diet of white flour, refined sugar, polished rice and caned foods. The deteriorating that had resulted was pitiful and obvious: faulty bone structure, crooked teeth, extreme tooth decay, high incidence of disease. Cancer was rampant among the very tribes that had stayed cancer-free on their native diets.

In both his observations on these people, and through animal experiments, Dr.Price was able to demonstrate the devastating effects of bad nutrition, not only of the present generation but also - far worse - on their offspring. His book - Nutrition and Physical Degeneration- has scores of pictures testifying to the destructive results from the white man's processed foods.

There was not a single toothbrush found by Dr.Price, whenever he found the enviable sets of glistening white and pearly teeth of primitives.

Dr.Price urged a return to harmony with nature by choosing foods in their natural state: all untempered with by man. Dr.Price gives this warning: "...we cannot distort and rob ... foods without serious injury. Nature has put these foods up in packages containing the combinations of minerals and other factors that are essential for nourishing the various organs .... our modern process of robbing the natural foods for convenience or gain completely thwarts nature's inviolable programme... the robbing of the wheat in the making of white flour reduced the minerals and other chemicals in the grains, so as to make them sources of energy without normal body-building and repairing qualities.Our appetites have been distorted so that hunger applies only for energy with no conscious need for body-building and repairing chemicals."

[Note: A good public library may have this book "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" by Weston A. Price].
