[Video] The Price-Pottenger Story
Almost all of the early raw food books referenced the monumental work of Dr. Weston A. Price and Dr. Francis Marion Pottenger. If their names don't sound familiar, I know their studies will:
Dr. Price: The doctor that traveled around the world studying indigenous people's teeth. He found that the teeth are truly an indication of health and that degenerative diseases were on the rise do to "industrialized food". Indigenous tribes, who had no access to medical dental care, had the healthiest teeth of the planet.
Dr. Pottenger: The 10 year Raw vs Cooked Cat study! Dr. Pottenger found that cats eating a raw diet thrived and cats eating a cooked diet experienced breakdown and disease at rapid rates. He also found that each generation experienced declining health compared to the generation before it. So not only were the cooked cat babies sick, but they were significantly worse off than their parents.
