"Dr. Weston A. Price (1870-1948), a Cleveland dentist, has been called the "Isaac Newton of Nutrition." In his search for the causes of dental decay and physical degeneration that he observed in his dental practice, he turned from test tubes and microscopes to unstudied evidence among human beings. Dr. Price sought the factors responsible for fine teeth among the people who had them--isolated non-industrialized people. The world became his laboratory. As he traveled, his findings led him to the belief that dental caries and deformed dental arches resulting in crowded, crooked teeth and unattractive appearance were merely a sign of physical degeneration, resulting from what he had suspected--nutritional deficiencies."
Eating gingerbread and molasses cookies, and other recipes adapted for blackstrap molasses, can provide nutritive, guilt-free sweets. Can you imagine having your cake and benefiting from it as well? Yes, it's true! When one eats nutrient dense foods, one eats less before feeling full and satisfied. Most obsessive, compulsive eating is a result of the body being malnourished and trying to get enough nutrients.
The United States is no longer number one in health and longevity in the world. Not by a long shot. Our processed eating and sedentary lifestyles have taken us down to number thirty-seven. It's time to return to the only diets available to our ancestors. Old style, organic, traditional foods are the way to health, along with exercise, fresh air and sunlight.
