People seeking health today often condemn certain food groups — such as grains, dairy foods, meat, salt, fat, sauces, sweets, and nightshade vegetables — but the Wise Traditions Diet is inclusive, not exclusive.
The Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charity, founded in 1999 to disseminate the research of nutrition pioneer, Dr. Weston Price, whose studies of isolated non-industrialized peoples established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets.
Dr. Price’s research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health, generation after generation, only when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats.
The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research, and activism. It supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective, including accurate nutrition instruction; organic and biodynamic farming; pasture-feeding of livestock; community-supported farms; honest and informative labeling; prepared parenting and nurturing therapies. Specific goals include establishment of universal access to clean, certified raw milk and a ban on the use of soy formula for infants.
The Foundation seeks to conduct research to test the nutrient content of foods, particularly butter produced under various conditions and the “X” Factor, discovered by Dr. Price, to determine the effects of traditional preparation methods on nutrient content and availability in whole foods.
