Weston A Price Movie


“Two different teachers came to me to inquire what had been done to make a particular child change from one of the poorest in the class in capacity to learn to one of the best. Dental caries is only one of the many expressions of our modern deficient nutrition.” Dr. Weston A. Price, Chapter 16 of “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration”

With an adequate improvement in nutrition, tooth decay will generally be checked provided two conditions are present: in the first place, there must be enough improvement in the quality of the saliva; and in the second, the saliva must have free access to the cavity. Of course, if the decay is removed and a filling placed in the cavity, the bacteria will be mechanically shut out. One of the most severe tests of a nutritional program, accordingly, is the test of its power to check tooth decay completely, even without fillings. There are, however, two further tests of the sufficiency of improvement of the chemical content of the saliva. If it has been sufficiently improved, bacterial growth will not only be inhibited, but the leathery decayed dentine will become mineralized from the saliva by a process similar to petrification. Dr. Weston A. Price, Chapter 16 of “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration”

“One of the important lessons we should learn from the primitive races is that of the need for maintaining a balance between soil productivity, plant growth and human babies. Even in a country with so low a fertility as obtains in the greater part of Australia, the Aborigines for a very long period were able to maintain this balance. Their system of birth control was very efficient and exacting.” Dr. Weston A. Price, Chapter 21 of “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration”

Sir Albert Howard contended that soil fertility must be the basis of the public health system of the future, and that agriculture must be given its place as the foundation of preventive medicine. Medical men as well as nutrition experts, he said, were realizing that a fertile and productive soil was an asset which should be developed in the nation's interest. [Medical Testament - Nutrition, Soil Fertility, and the National Health. County Palatine of Chester, Local Medical and Panel Committee. March 22, 1939]

"A declining soil fertility, due to a lack of organic material, major elements, and trace minerals, is responsible for poor crops and in turn for pathological conditions in animals fed deficient foods from such soils, and that mankind is no exception." Dr. William A. Albrecht, Chairman of the Department of Soils at the University of Missouri

It is not merely a question of healing the animal or man stricken by disease, it is necessary to heal the soil so as not to have to heal the animal or man.” Dr. Andre Voisin, one of the most distinguished French representatives of veterinary science. [pg 236 The Secret Life of Plants, Tompkins & Bird]

Nations endure only as long as their topsoil. Henry Cantwell Wallace, US Secretary of Agriculture 1921 - 1924

THE capital of the nations which is real, permanent, and independent of everything except a market for the products of farming, is the soil. To utilize and also to safeguard this important possession the maintenance of fertility is essential. Sir Albert Howard. An Agricultural Testament.

“A fertile soil, that is a soil teeming with healthy life in the shape of abundant microflora and microfauna, will bear healthy plants, and these, when consumed by animals and man, will confer health on animals and man. But an infertile soil, that is, one lacking sufficient microbial, fungous, and other life, will pass on some form of deficiency to the plant, and such plant, in turn, will pass on some form of deficiency to animal and man.” Sir Albert Howard [Known as the “Father of Organics”] in India, by Louise Howard 1953

The flooding of the English market with cheap food, grown anywhere and anyhow, forced the farmers of this country to throw to the winds the old and well-tried principles of mixed farming, and to save themselves from bankruptcy by reducing the cost of production. But this temporary salvation was paid for by loss of fertility. Mother earth has recorded her disapproval by the steady growth of disease in crops, animals, and mankind. The spraying machine was called in to protect the plant; vaccines and serums the animal; in the last resort the afflicted live stock are slaughtered and burnt. This policy is failing before our eyes. The population, fed on improperly grown food, has to be bolstered up by an expensive system of patent medicines, panel doctors, dispensaries, hospitals, and convalescent homes. Sir Albert Howard. An Agricultural Testament.

The essential difference in the various theories of tooth decay is the difference in theories relative to the control of these decalcifying organisms [bacteria], and relative to their quantity and activity. The dental profession has been waiting for decades for this question to be solved before taking active steps to prevent the whole process. The primitive approach has been to provide a program that will keep the teeth well, that is, prevention of dental caries by adequate food combinations. I have just stated that teeth harden after eruption if the saliva is normal. This occurs by a process of mineralization much like the process by which petrified wood is produced. Dr. Weston A. Price, Chapter 16 of “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration”
