The Wisdom of Dr. Weston A. Price
What his nutritional research teaches us about a healthy diet
Speaker: Muriel Plichta, leader of the Milwaukee Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation

Potluck dinner followed by program

Dentist Dr. Weston A. Price did extensive international scientific research in the early 20th century to better understand why nourishing traditional diets were healthier than modern convenience foods. The Weston A. Price Foundation began in 1999, with Sally Fallon Morell as the founding president, to disseminate nutritional research about a diet rich in nutrient dense whole foods. The foundation now has many chapters and members, offers extensive printed and online resources and publishes a quarterly journal Wise Traditions in Food, Farming, and the Healing Arts.

Some of their recommendations will be familiar to many of us; some may be surprising. Learn more about this organization and what it advocates and come to your own conclusions.
