About this deal

He found not only remarkable dental health (a paucity of cavities and lack of crowded teeth) he also found that heart disease, cancer and even diseases like inflamed gall bladders were rare. Children born under the primitive diets were healthier, stronger, and had resistance to cavities, while children born under the modern diets had stunted bone development, high disease (tuberculosis was particularly common) susceptibility, and low cavity resistance. It is equally heart-breaking when you see photos of what happens when "traditional" foods are replaced with modern foods.

He spent much of the 1930s visiting many lands, examining the teeth of the residents, taking photographs of them, and studying their diets. It’s quite depressing that this book was written so long ago, and obviously you see these organisations that make a lot of money out of food and medication, and the whole way that society is laid out, and they seem to have become more powerful and stronger, and people seem to be more submissive and more happy to give their health and wellbeing away, that’s quite sad. It is not surprising his work is not taught to dentists training now as the pharma industry control our ill health. Imagine that you are a dentist treating tooth decay (dental caries) and you decide to investigate the root causes, and discover that primitive and isolated tribes do not have tooth decay. There are an unknown number of phytochemicals and other things we have yet to discover that have been constituents of our food for perhaps millions of years.Mental disease in infants can be traced in a high percentage of cases to a lack of over-nutrition in the mother (since sufficient nutrition only takes care of her own health). Chris and Gill will be delving into the fat soluble vitamins and their essential role within optimising gene expression throughout the body.

When the proper chemical content of the saliva is reinstituted, bacterial growth is stopped and the tooth will harden in the area of the cavity. In those places where populations consumed foods native to their regions, he found perfect dental arches, low incidence of tooth decay, high immunity to tuberculosis and overall excellent health.

I have just begun to read a fascinating book by a former dentist who contends that dental decay is primarily caused not by bacteria, lack of good brushing or poor nutrition, but by our feelings. These travels, studies and observations are carefully documented in his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, published in 1939.

Those who lived in remote villages in the hills were fine, but those who lived by the shore, and ate imported modern foods, suffered for it. It remains the basic book in this area and is essential reading for those concerned with food and health.Within one generation of eating "modern foods" - dental health markedly deteriorated, as did general health. It was when people changed their diet to a modern western diet (white flour, white sugar, etc) that their health deteriorated.
