In the 1930s, Weston A. Price, a dentist from Ohio travelled the world to study the diets of indigenous peoples who exclusively ate local traditional foods. He compared their glowing good health, excellent bone structure, and mental stability to the Americans of his day, who were suffering from dental problems, mental illness, allergies, arthritis, asthma, heart disease, diabetes, digestive disorders and cancer.
He discovered that traditional diets contain abundant vitamins and minerals, especially vitamins A, D, and K2, found in seafood and the fat and organ meats of grassfed animals. When indigenous people adopted processed and denatured foods such as white flour, sugar, canned foods, vegetable oils, and pasteurized milk, they developed the same chronic diseases that plague us today.
We are a non-profit nutrition education foundation dedicated to continuing Dr. Price’s research and to returning nutrient-dense foods to our diet by supporting:
• Accurate, up-to-date nutrition information
• Organic and biodynamic farming
• Pasture-fed livestock
• Community-supported farms
• Honest and informative labeling
• Universal access to clean, raw milk
• Technology that helps retain nutrients in our food, rather than destroy them.
I am excited to announce the NEW Weston A. Price Foundation Queen Creek AZ Chapter! We have big plans and can't wait to start a Real Food Revolution here in the East Valley! I was on my own when I started learning about my health and the importance of whole, unrefined foods prepared according to traditional methods that optimize nutrient density. It can be overwhelming changing the way we have always done things. But making that decision is easy compared to putting it into action. Finding Real Food Resources and learning how to cook with them takes time. There is strength in numbers and we want to create a community of people that are looking for others that want to learn and help educate. There are many who are searching for answers and we want to help! If you would like to get involved but don't know how, consider making a small donation to help fund future meetings, classes and functions. The more we have the more we can do! Thank you!
