Ask any child where their food comes from, and the chances are he or she will say the supermarket.
And most adults don’t know a lot more about how food ends up on their plate either.
We have taken food for granted. It’s a mistake for which we are paying dearly. Food doesn’t grow on supermarket shelves.
According to United Nations, a disease tsunami is sweeping the world. Humanity is dying out. This is the result of our deep ignorance about our food.
Food processing and health care are now multi-trillion dollar industries. Profit-seeking leeches have realized there is lot of money in making people sick and then selling them fancy healthcare plans. We have taken these merchants of death as our well-wishing friends.
Eating has become a very complicated affair. It is not supposed to be a rocket science. Even the birds, beasts and insects know what to eat. They have no scientific institutions or research organizations.
Time to be enlightened about what we put in our mouth is now. We are digging our grave with our teeth, day in and day out. When will we pull our heads out of the sand and see the reality we face?
If you don’t have good health, the other things like food, housing, transportation, education and recreation don’t mean much.
At least a dozen studies a day are being rolled out to further confuse the already confused public. This book may have some definitive answers to our dinnertime dilemmas.

Dr. Weston A. Price

Simply stated, the practical application of the primitive

wisdom for accomplishing this would involve returning
to the use of natural foods which provide the entire assortment
of bodybuilding and repairing food factors. This means the
recognition of the fact that all forms of animal life are the product
of the food environments that have produced them. Terefore, we
cannot distort and rob the foods without serious injury. Nature has
put these foods up in packages containing the
combinations of minerals and other factors that
are essential for nourishing the various organs.
Some of the simpler animal forms are able to
synthesize in their bodies some of the food
elements which we humans also require, but
cannot create ourselves. Our modern process
of robbing the natural foods for convenience
or gain completely thwarts Nature’s inviolable program. I have
shown how the robbing of the wheat in the making of white four
reduced the minerals and other chemicals in the grains, so as to
make them sources of energy without normal body-building and
repairing qualities. Our appetites have been distorted so that hunger

Te roots of peace and prosperity lie in working the land, protecting
the cow, and loving Krishna.

appeals only for energy with no conscious need for body-building
and repairing chemicals.

One dairy farmer I know sells his own cows' milk for $1 a gallon
while his wife pays $1.80 for the man-handled, store-bought stuf. Most
vegetable farmers trade their harvest for inedible paper. Tis paper money
buys complex machinery that they hope will save them time and bring
in more paper money. But greed never pays. In a recent national study
of 130 stressful occupations, the job of farm manager ranked twelfh.
Farmers are going out of business at the rate of one thousand per week,
because the cost of farming has become greater than the profts. And since
the industrialization of agriculture, the number of American families
who live on farms has shrunk from 30% in 1920 to 2.5% today.
Nevertheless, Secretary of Agriculture John Block claims the
industrialization of agriculture has "enabled the vast majority of
Americans to engage in other economic activities that have produced
the vast array of necessities and consumer goods which make possible
the high standard of living Americans enjoy today."
Is it prosperity to have two locks on the door instead of one, special
hot-lines to the police, fre, and riot squads, and a gun in every house? Or
motorcycles and cars screeching into the morning hours? Or high-school
seniors graduating with their brains 'washed' by ffeen thousand hours
of television? And ten thousand Russian megatons inspired by American
expertise now aimed at Americans' living rooms? Te answer must be a
resounding NO! if we are to be honest.
Although Lord Krishna gave us the land and the cows as our natural
economic base, we don't fnd much talk about them in Business Week,
Money, or Fortune. We fnd, instead, the latest bank rates and high-tech
investments, bargains in wines and personal computers, and speculation
that gold may soar to $4,000 an ounce by 1986.
But others, like fnancial adviser Howard Ruf and survivalist Sally
Harrington, are more down to earth. In a world spinning toward political,
economic, and ecological disaster, Ruf explains why grains and beans
are at least as good an investment as silver and gold.
"You spend hundreds of dollars every year to insure your cars against
the accident you fully expect not to have," says Ruf, "and you can't eat
the cancelled checks. Your money is wasted unless you're 'lucky' enough
to have an accident. Food storage is the insurance you can eat."
Adds Harrington, "Wheat, if kept dry and protected from rodents and
insects, will last for two or three thousand years. Some that was found
in King Tut's tomb was still edible, and it even germinated."

One of our modern tendencies is to select the foods we like,
particularly those that satisfy our hunger without our having to
eat much, and, another is to think in terms of the few known
vitamins and their efects. Te primitive tendency seems to have
been to provide an adequate factor of safety for all emergencies
by the selection of a sufcient variety and quantity of the various
natural foods to prevent entirely most of our modern afictions.
Teir success demonstrates that their program is superior to ours.
An important advance in modern international relationships
provides for exchange of professorships and, thus, interchanges of
wisdom. We have shown a most laudable and sympathetic interest
in carrying our culture to the remnants of these primitive races.
Would it not be fortunate to accept in exchange lessons from
their inherited knowledge? It may be not only our greatest
opportunity, but our best hope for stemming the tide of our
progressive breakdown and also for our return to harmony with
Nature’s laws, since life in its fullness is Nature obeyed.
