Longevity and Nutrition Library

    Having a healthy population makes focusing on healing sickness far less important. And it is far easier to prevent degeneration than to remedy it. This library collection is concerned with the question "what makes people healthy?" Prior to WWII, why did some peoples in some places on Earth enjoy exceptional life spans with far greater well-being? In this collection we offer books and other materials that explored these questions.


"Cheshire Medical Testament." With additional testimony and letters of Albert Howard, Sir Robert McCarrsion and Lionel Picton.

In 1939 a group of medical doctors in Cheshire, England, published a testament in which they condemned modern medicine as a failure and pointed to nutrition as the only true source of public health. Sir Albert Howard and Robert McCarrsion also spoke at a meeting regarding this testament. All the letters and documents are here presented. See below: Yellowlees. "Ill Fares The Land"

Christian, Eugene. Uncooked Foods & How to Use Them: a treatise on how to get the highest form of animal energy from food, With Recipes for Preparation, Healthful Combinations and Menus. New York: The Health-Culture Company, 1924.

Perhaps this book is not underpinned with the most up to date and correct science of human digestion, still, getting interesting raw food recipes is always valuable. Many of the recipes make me wish I could get unpasteurized whole milk and cream. Many thanks are owed to Linda Sheard of the UK, who donated a clean photocopy of this book so it could be scanned.

Clark, John. Hunza: Lost Kingdom of the Himalayas. 1956. New York, Funk & Wagnalls Company.

A post WWII adventurer on a one-man mission to save a small bit of the world from Communism, Clark organises his own one-person Peace Corps unit in Hunzaland a decade ahead of JFK. Clark is a geologist by profession. The book is filled with detailed observations that prove as revealing of the mid-20th century American mentality as they are of the Hunzakut and of Hunzaland.

Clayton, Paul and Judith Rowbotham. How the Mid-Victorians Worked, ate and Died. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 2009, 6, 1235-1253.

ABSTRACT: Analysis of the mid-Victorian period in the U.K. reveals that life expectancy at age 5 was as good or better than exists today, and the incidence of degenerative disease was 10% of ours. Their levels of physical activity and hence calorific intakes were approximately twice ours. They had relatively little access to alcohol and tobacco; and due to their correspondingly high intake of fruits, whole grains, oily fish and vegetables, they consumed levels of micro- and phytonutrients at approximately ten times the levels considered normal today. This paper relates the nutritional status of the mid-Victorians to their freedom from degenerative disease; and extrapolates recommendations for the cost effective improvement of public health today.

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).

OMANGOD did more than reprint it: they added a fundamentalist (vegan raw fooder) introduction by Victoras Kulvinskas as well as the transcript of a lengthy and illuminating interview with a crusty and (at that time) well-aged Dr. Howell; the inteview was conducted by Kulvinskas and it is clear that Howell thought Kulvinskas to be a bit of a twit although the fact that Howells was "sending him up" was clearly not apparent to Kulvinskas.

The first step toward making a major improvement is sometimes called a "transitional diet."

Lorimer, E.O. (1939) Language Hunting In The Karakoram. George Allen & Unwin Ltd., London.

Mrs. E.O. Lorimer and her husband, David Lorimer, journeyed to Hunza in the late 1930s, spending a year in residence there. The Lorimers studied the language(s) of the region, and later wrote the definitive book on the Hunza language. Mrs. Lorimer also busied herself with learning all she could about the life and customs of ordinary Hunza folk. Being an accomplished linguist herself, she was able to freely communicate with Hunza people. Her book is full of anecdotal information covering everything from cropping cycles to childrearing, food customs and dietaries, handling social malfactors (few) and having parties and dances. The rigors of the trek into Hunza and the Lorimer's difficulties obtaining any additional supplies well-illustrates the isolation of these people. Also accompanying this story are over 40 magnificent black and white photographs. This may be the finest book describing actual life in Hunza at a time before WWII, when Hunza still resembled the place McCarrsion so admired some 25 years earlier. Mrs. Lorimer was also a most admirable person of the highest integrity. Her reportage should be taken as being about as accurate a rendering of another culture as a person can make based on the short acquaintance of a single year's residence Downloads as a PDF of 1.5 mb.

McCarrison, Sir Robert, M.D. Various Papers, including his best known, (1944) Nutrition and National Health. Faber and Faber, London.

 In 1936, McCarrison delivered a three part lecture series to the Royal Society of Arts, in which he demonstrated to an audience (mainly) of medical doctors that the creation of near-perfect human health was easily accomplishable, simply by decent nutrition provided over time. His evidence: rat-feeding studies he performed in India, where populations of rats were fed the same human dietaries the various areas of India ate and developed corresponding states of health or disease as were experienced by the humans living in these areas. His revelations had little effect on the medical community, however. Also find here several shorter McCarrsion pieces in the same vein. OUT OF PRINT.

McCarrison, Sir Robert, M.D. Studies in Deficiency Disease. Milwaukee: Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, 1945. A photolithographic reprint from the original Oxford Medical Library edition published in London by Henry Frowde and Hodder & Stoughton, 1921.

This book is offered with pride. Rendering it into a PDF represented considerable labour; the book is worthy of considerable effort. In it, in formal medical language, illustrated with photo-micrographs of autopsy tissue samples, charts, graphs and tables, McCarrison details animal studies he conducted in India. Using pidgeons and monkeys he created disease conditions by restriction of vitamin intake and drew analogies to human ailments. The book also offers frank and simple recommendations for human dietary improvement and the elimination of many diseases thereby. Most of it is comprehensible to a reasonably well-educated layman.

Pearse, Innes and Lucy Crocker. The Peckham Experiment: a study of the living structure of society. Edinburgh and London: Scottish Academic Press, 1985.

This passionately and sensitively written inspirational work is often mentioned in British organic farming and gardening books published in the 40s and 50s. Innes Pierce inspired, set up and ran Peckham Centre during the 30s in London. It closed during WWII, and reopened for a few years after the war. But the Labour Government's hostility forced its permanent closure. Peckham Centre helped create and sustain (at very low cost) a positive social culture for urban dwellers that made enormous improvements in their happiness and physical well being. The book contains a biologist's explanation of the workings of the human family as the essential homo sapiens survival entity and shows how to greatly strengthen the family against the modern economic forces causing its dissolution. Thanks are due to John Fielder of Cairns, Queensland, for the lend of this book. This library has been seeking a copy of Pierce's follow up, The Quality of Life, 1979, the story of post war Peckham.

Picton, Lionel James, O.B.E. Thoughts On Feeding. London: Faber and Faber, 1946.

A remarkable study of human nutrition and the various forms of disease consequent from mal-nutrition.

Picton also wrote "The Medical Testament," a critical evaluation of medical practice that shook up English thought for several decades after its publication. Published several years later in the USA by Devin-Adair, titled Nutrition & The Soil. The American edition contained a remarkable introduction by Dr. Jonathan Forman, who was, among other things, Vice President of Friends of the Land. Dr. Forman's introduction is included in this online version, although the text otherwise follows the original Faber and Faber edition, including a number of interesting photographs that were not included in the Devin-Adair edition.

Price, Weston A., D.D.S. Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. New York: Paul B. Hoeber, Inc., 1939.

In the 1930s Dr. Price travelled to isolated regions finding people who, because of their proper nutrition, enjoyed general good health, long life and virtual immunity to dental disease. Price travelled to remote parts of Scotland and Switzerland, Canada, Alaska, Peru, Africa, Down Under, etc., and found similarly healthy (and isolated) peoples who did not partake of the industrial food system. Contains remarkable photographs that show the comparison between what healthy bodies and physically degenerated bodies look like far better than words ever could. No one who spends time studying these pictures will ever view the health and appearance of their friends, neighbours, or their own face in the morror in the same way. This library once had the complete book online but with the passage of the Australian/US "Free-Trade" Agreement the book again acquired copyright protection in this country. However, Keith Atkinson's Journey To Forever website, domiciled in Tokyo, still makes the full text available. Currently available in print at a reasonable price, this book should be on the shelf of every student of holistic health.

Along with the works(s) of Dr's Price and Pottenger in the US, the story of the Hopewood children is unique in the annals of medicine. Particularly in-so-far as with all its outstanding and confirmed results in the superior health of the children to that of the population in general, and children in particular. The fact that it is still largely ignored some sixty odd years later is a massive indictment of our present day health system, where it should be required reading by every man, woman and child in our society, particularly those contemplating parenthood.
