Sorry, I stole this review from someone else, but I thought it was a very good one:
This is not just a book about nutrition, although even in that genre it is the best of its kind ever published.
This is a book about mankind, human progress, social harmony, the roots of crime, the foundation of happiness.
If what Dr Price had alarmingly brought to our attention in the 1930s about the highly processed foods we should not eat had been followed, the people in this world now would be healthy, happy and in harmony. Instead, we have a society where 85% are overweight, 90% have vitamin/mineral deficiencies, almost every child needs orthodontia, has acne, needs glasses, has asthma etc. All these modern conditions are caused by nutritional deficiencies in parents prior to conception or in the child while growing up. Usually both are present.
Then there are all the mental problems caused by nutritional deficiencies: crime, delinquency, depression, Alzheimer's etc.
Why has this tragic situation happened? Capitalism. That creed based on providing us maximally seductive food based on sugar, additives, refined flour, trans fat, in huge quantities, aggressively marketed to ensure maximum profit to the corporation ( but in the process destroying our health). What a way for human society to run itself!
