In the 1930s Dr. Price documented highly isolated communities that enjoyed extraordinary health, long life and virtual immunity to dental disease. Price visited remote parts of Scotland, Switzerland, Canada, Alaska, Peru, Africa, Down Under, etc. All of these communities were so isolated that they did not have access to industrial foods. Many interesting photos.
A well written review of all previous knowledge ranging from Albert Howard to Price to Albrecht, Borsodi, etc. The numerous typographical errors in the original amateurish printing have not been fixed. Thanks to Peter Schwarz of N.S.W. for the lend of this book.
Explains that soil fertility, the nutritional qualities of food and the health of animals and humans are tightly linked.
Health of animals and men is linked to the mineral balance of the soil.
Understanding how soil imbalances produce this livestock disease illuminates aspects of how human health depends upon nutritional balances.
One of the most important agriculture-health books ever written. Albrecht published many articles in magazines and journals, but this is the only actual book Albrecht wrote and was his effort to encapsulate his whole message between two covers.
