Diabetes was not known by the primitive people that Weston A. Price met in his travels in the 1920's and 1930's.
Diabetes was unknown to people who did not live on present day food.A Dentist named Weston A. Price spent many years in the 1920's and 1930's traveling around the world visiting primitive people. He found that all the people he saw that had not been introduced to modern foods had beautiful teeth structure and no evidence of decay. He made note that the food they ate was free of all the processed foods we present day people eat - we are referring to food from the 1920's and 1930's.Obviously in those days they did not have the huge number of processed items we have today .He was actually referring to the high carbohydrate content of food today.If it was high in the 1930's it certainly is much higher today. We have not taken much notice of Weston A.Price wonderful work and in fact the Diabetic Associations around the world seem to push a diet of at least 60% Carbohydrates to be eaten as being the best for our health. I am surprised and confused why we have not learnt from the past.We are recommending food which will result in poor teeth structure and decay - is this sensible?!.
I would be pleased if you could make comment on this .I will be doing a little more research on the foods eaten by the primitive people that Price met in his travels and will note them in our monthly newsletter.
