Primitive Man and His Food

De Vries, Arnold

Original publication date: 1952
Original publisher: Chicago, probably self-published
Publication status: Out of print

Tracks down all the threads, re-asks all the questions, re-examines all existing literature (as of 1952) about why some places and peoples had superior health. An excellent job! Arnold DeVries was an American researcher, writer and hygienist, who in the 1950’s changed from being a fruitarian, as he had advocated in his first book, Fountain of Youth, 1946, to having a different understanding of optimum human nutrition, as expressed in (Primitive Man and His Food, 1952, Elixir of Life, 1952). These later books are along the lines of Weston Price’s ideas.
