by Dr. Stanley S. Bass
Do you know of the dangers in high-fruit vegan diets?
Why did the third generation of vegans have health problems?
How did Dr. Gian-Cursio solve these problems?
Why introduce egg yolks and raw-milk cheeses to vegan diets?
Why did Dr. helton want to interview Dr. Gian-Cursio?
This booklet summarizes findings of Dr. Gian-Cursio that led to major disagreement
over diet in Natural Hygiene, and the slit in !NH" that led to the oliti#al removal
of Dr. Gian-Cursio and others. The resulting la#k of kno$ledge of the dangers of
defi#ient vegan diets resulted in a dominan#e of vegans in !NH" u until no$.

3!n Septeber "2 194"2 5r. Christopher 6ian7C&rsio and 0 drove to Batavia2 %.8.2 (here (e (ere lodged at the
hoe of the gracio&s 9r. and 9rs. Penepent2 (hich becae a focal point for the reception of abo&t t(enty
people that first evening. 9r. and 9rs. Penepent had beg&n the practice of eating and living according to the
grand principles of %at&ral 'ygiene2 a syste and philosophy (hich represents a highly advanced and scientific
aspect of vegetarianis2 and also incl&des a set of principles of :do1s: and :don1ts: covering the physical2
ental2 and oral aspects of living (hich are in accordance (ith %at&ral la( and the plan of %at&re.
5r. C&rsio had been in practice in ;ochester2 %.8.2 since 19<42 fro (hence he spread the teachings of
vegetarian 'ygiene far and (ide across the area. 0n those early years2 9r. and 9rs. Penepent ebraced this (ay
of life for theselves and their faily of five sons. 0n t&rn these five sons raised their children ranging fro a
fe( onths old to t(elve years of age at this present (riting =194">. Altho&gh he left the ;ochester area in

@e spent the first evening in Batavia2 the second day in ;ochester2 the third in B&ffalo2 and the fo&rth in nearby

Su''lement to )With Three Generations of ygienists) by Dr. Stanley S. Bass
0n order to coply (ith 5r. Shelton1s re/&est to &pdate the article entitled :@ith +hree 6enerations of
Megetarian 'ygienists: (hich 0 (rote in Septeber of 194" and s&bitted to the 'ygienic ;evie( for
p&blication on !ctober 1#2 19L42 0 intervie(ed Anthony Penepent2 (ho is the yo&ngest son of the faily. 'e
(as 14 years old (hen 0 first et hi 14 years ago2 and he is presently <# years old =in 19L42 that is>.
+he ne( inforation (hich 0 have gleaned2 (hich brings &s &p to the present... there are a total of <# ebers
of the Penepent faily consisting of three generations of %at&ral 'ygienists2 (ho2 beca&se of their lifestyle and
the (ay they have lived2 have stayed together cohesively2 (or)ed together and set &p a b&siness vent&re2 one of
the largest in the area B @estern %e( 8or) 6ravel. %o( in the third generation2 there are eleven ebers (ho
are either in college or grad&ates of colleges2 and t(o of the are going into edical schools. As a res&lt of
living as %at&ral 'ygienists2 they (ere inspired to becoe doctors (ith the ai of orienting their practices
strictly according to %at&ral 'ygiene concepts.
@hen 0 in/&ired abo&t the teperaent of these people2 Anthony stated that :(hen they follo( the %at&ral
'ygiene progra2 they1re very cal2 b&t if they go off2 they are arg&entative and diffic&lt to get along (ith.:
0n this instance2 (e are &sing a faily of <# people as being representative of (hat other %at&ral 'ygiene
failies in the &pper %e( 8or) State area have e.perienced. +he chief feat&re (hich is noticeable (ith this
gro&p is their calness. %ot only is their behavior yo&thf&l2 that is2 (hat (o&ld. be considered noral fro a
%at&ral 'ygiene standpoint2 b&t it is e.treely attractive even fro a conventional or :orthodo.: vie(7point.
So that2 if one (ere to eval&ate the behavior of this gro&p2 one (o&ld be str&c) by the absence of ental
probles. +here is no social antagonis and there has not been any &se of dr&gs2 narcotics2 or poisoning agents.
+hro&gho&t the three generations2 these people have lived their lives in a (ell7reg&lated anner2 in a state of
health2 and in haronio&s adaptation (ith their fello( en and their environent.
Anthony2 a third generation %at&ral 'ygienist2 is presently involved in edical st&dies in preparation for a
degree of 5octor of 9edicine. 'e is representative of the others of this gro&p. Shortly after 0 tal)ed to Anthony
Penepent2 0 intervie(ed 5r. Christopher 6ian7C&rsio for three ho&rs for the p&rpose of s&pplying the
inforation that 5r. Shelton re/&ested regarding 5r. C&rsio1s vie(s in %at&ral 'ygiene (hich he arrived at
fro advising over 4# people thro&gho&t three generations.
0 fo&nd that 5r. C&rsio1s ideas are basically those of %at&ral 'ygiene. 0n an article (hich he (rote and
s&bitted to 5r. Shelton years ago entitled :Precision in %at&ral 'ygiene2: he e.tended these concepts into
clinical practice B his concepts (ere erely a odification based &pon %at&ral 'ygiene principles. +hey had to
do (ith the /&ality2 /&antity2 tiing2 and se/&ence of eating. Basically2 0 sa( that there (as no difference
bet(een (hat 5r. 6ian7C&rsio advocates and (hat a tr&e %at&ral 'ygienic practitioner (o&ld advocate B b&t
(ith this e.ception. +he concepts2 theories2 or principles &pon (hich %at&ral 'ygiene is based are accepted as
eternal and inviolable. +he difference (as in the application or interpretation of these principles and the
/&antitative &se or accent&ation of soe of these 'ygienic concepts.
+he people that 0 (rote abo&t involved a period2 (hich began in 19<?. Shortly after these people accepted
%at&ral 'ygiene as a (ay of life2 5r. 'erbert 9. Shelton lect&red in ;ochester2 %.8. At that tie2 he et these
people as (ell as the grandparents of these three generations. +hese people have been %at&ral 'ygienists fro
the very early days of the renaissance of %at&ral 'ygiene. $0t began (ith the (riting of 5r. Shelton1s boo)2
'&an ,ifeI 0ts Philosophy and 0ts ,a(s.-
+he ter %at&ral 'ygiene cae into &sage after 5r. Shelton and 5r. 6ian7C&rsio et2 (hen they disc&ssed an
appropriate ter to disting&ish it fro edical hygiene. 0n these three generations2 (e have a laboratory of the
highest biotic /&ality that has been contin&ing for 4" years2 prod&cing evidence of the great val&e of %at&ral
'ygiene2 (hen its principles are translated into techni/&es of life that are copatible (ith physiological la(s.
+hese three generations are no( e.panding into fo&r2 yet in all this tie there has not been one death. Also2
e.cept for ac&te reedial processes of a fe( days d&ration2 there has not been a chronic disease. 9any vestiges
of chronic disorders have been eliinated d&ring this tie as these individ&als progressed or evolved into
higher platea&s of health.
+he odifications that have been ade in techni/&e in applying the principles of %at&ral 'ygiene are based on
a siple principleI that there be econoy of body str&ct&re and energy B that in every agent2 ethod2 and
condition2 there be a.i& &tiliAation (ith ini& e.pendit&re of po(er B so that there be eno&gh energy
left over that the body can &se for healing p&rposes. 5r. 6ian7C&rsio has )ept these principles before hi as
cardinal precepts2 teaching that (hatever is &tiliAed &st al(ays be in confority (ith body need and never
against organisal intelligence.
+he difference2 basically2 that 0 noted in y st&dy of the diet of these individ&als is that there has been an
accent&ation or increase of the green leaf vegetables (hile at the sae tie there has been a red&ction in the
ao&nt of fr&it2 especially those that are highly acid $citric2 etc.-. Also2 the fast has been &sed at the very first
syptos of any reedial deto.icating process that (e call ac&te diseaseBs&ch as colds and inor dist&rbances
that coonly occ&r (hen vegetarians and even %at&ral 'ygienists e.perience (hen they habit&ally over7
cons&e of foods B even tho&gh they are nat&ral.

Additional comments
by Chet Day from his magazine Health & Beyond June 1, 1994 ,, where the above text was first published:
In the letter Dr. Bass submitted with the article, he wrote:
!riting about patients who went into three generations of following a certain dietary pattern is a rare experience and of inestimable value. It
contains the missing lin"s and "eys to exceptional success in #ygienic eating, and the enclosed is my treasure, which I$ve been saving for
all these years. %or some inexplicable reason, it was never published by &helton, even though he as"ed me to update it after a brea" of
years. &o without further delay, I am sending it to you while we$re waiting for the mice wor" so you can use it meanwhile if you wish. It
points out the causes of failure in 'atural #ygiene diets, and it points out the solutions as discovered by the genius of Dr. Cursio$s in(uiring
I want to than" Dr. Bass for writing this important article and for sharing information which provides answers to (uestions many of us have
about the 'atural #ygiene diet. I$ve edited minimally here, mainly twea"ing a few phrasings and adding in this type face a clarifying
sentence or two of transition.
)nd now, in the spirit of *et us have the +,-+# though the heavens fall, I proudly offer you the .une issue of Health % &eyond.
)nd so ends the lesson.
'ow regarding, blended salads, how about some details from Dr. Bass$s boo"let, 'deal Health through "e(uential )ating/
If you$d li"e to try them, due to the li(uefaction of vegetables by blending, blended salads offer the following benefits:
01 )bsorption and assimilation of vitamins, minerals, and proteins is increased approximately five times as compared to eating and
chewing the salad2
31 ) blended salad will digest and leave the stomach in 04 to 35 minutes compared to 65 to 75 minutes for a tossed salad eaten whole2
61 +o avoid oxidation during the blending, when the whirlpool begins to form, stop the blender, pour its contents into a dish and begin to
eat. 'o more oxidation ta"es place than when you thoroughly masticate a salad before swallowing2
81 %or people who have difficulty with handling of roughage 9as in ulcers, colitis, and similar ailments1, or digestion of raw food, blending
usually solves the problem2
41 &ince digestion and assimilation of vegetables becomes greatly simplified when blended, the energy saved in digestion can ma"e the
difference between lingering illness and rapid recovery in serious cases.
