Shh… I have a secret! (Dr. Price’s Nutrition and Physical Degeneration — free!)

Are you familiar with the man, the (nutrition) myth (buster), the legend, Dr. Weston A. Price? If you’re not yet, allow me to introduce you to my main man, Wes. (And yes, the rumors are true. I have a crush on him.)

From the Weston A. Price Foundation:

Dr. Weston A. Price (1870-1948), a Cleveland dentist, has been called the “Charles Darwin of Nutrition.” In his search for the causes of dental decay and physical degeneration that he observed in his dental practice, he turned from test tubes and microscopes to unstudied evidence among human beings. Dr. Price sought the factors responsible for fine teeth among the people who had them–isolated nonindustrialized people.The world became his laboratory. As he traveled, his findings led him to the belief that dental caries and deformed dental arches resulting in crowded, crooked teeth and unattractive appearance were merely a sign of physical degeneration, resulting from what he had suspected–nutritional deficiencies.Price traveled the world over in order to study isolated human groups, including sequestered villages in Switzerland, Gaelic communities in the Outer Hebrides, Eskimos and Indians of North America, Melanesian and Polynesian South Sea Islanders, African tribes, Australian Aborigines, New Zealand Maori and the Indians of South America. Wherever he went, Dr. Price found that beautiful straight teeth, freedom from decay, stalwart bodies, resistance to disease and fine characters were typical of primitives on their traditional diets, rich in essential food factors.

Dr. Price created an epic masterpiece compilation of his studies throughout the world that formed the basis of propaganda-free, real nutrition education we have today in his book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. The book retails for $28, and sells for about $24 on Amazon, but I have a little secret to share.

You can get Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Dr. Price in its entirety, online, for free!

You can read Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Dr. Weston A. Price online — FREE! So cool!

Yes, the whole book, all 21 chapters, complete with over 100 images of the subjects of Dr. Price’s studies, is available online for reading, printing, downloading, and sharing, as an e-book courtesy of the Gutenburg Project of Australia. For free! Merry belated Christmas to you! 😉

Although I would still like a copy to highlight and be able to physically hold in my hands, I really enjoy being able to easily search (control-F-style) and navigate the e-book version with its clickable links to the different sections and chapters.

I hope you spend some time digging into the wealth of invaluable information available in this awesome, free resource. Oh, and — I don’t really want you to keep my secret safe. Spread the word! As Dr. Price himself spoke with his very last breath, “You teach, you teach, you teach.”

    Awesome!! Thanks :)

    Ooh, thank you! I found that link about a month ago and started reading but then lost the link and hadn’t taken the time to refind it. The hard copy has been sitting on my Amazon wishlist forever and someday I’ll pony up the $$ for it. In the meantime, yay for free!

    Btw, just to my right, in your sidebar, you have a misspelling: “Products and comapnies we belive in”. Just noticed that. LOL

  4. Sara says:

    Wow! Thank you so much for sharing! I borrowed this from the library and had to give it back before I wanted to 😉

    Thank you so much for this link!!!!! I just found your website by googling “nourishing traditions” and I’m so excited. I am currently an expat American living in Paris and am trying to take advantage of all the wonderful grass-fed beef, raw dairy and amazing butter that’s so readily available over here. The only problem – my kitchen. It’s tiny. And there is no oven. So I’m trying to find ways to adapt recipes and am making lots of bone broths. It’s a challenge but I’m hoping to see some health improvements. Thanks for your blog! Super excited to read more!

  7. Yay! Thanks so much for sharing this. It was already on my “To Read” list. :0)

  8. Kelly says:

    Yes, how do I download this on a mac? All I am getting is a webpage to read the book from. Found a zip file, but once opened, it took me back to the webpage. GGGRRRR!!

  9. Patricia Camp says:

    Thank you. Downloaded it to my computer to read later.
