This book is
dedicated to the memory of
Weston A. Price, D.D.S. and
Frances M. Pottenger Jr., M.D.,
whose nutritional wisdom guides us to this day.
This book is possible only because of the landmark and groundbreaking research of individuals who preceded it. With this in mind, we extend gratitude to Gregor Johann Mendel for his discovery in the mid-1800s of how individual traits are passed on through generations; the pioneering work in the 1930s of innovators Francis M. Pottenger, Jr., M.D., and Weston A. Price, D.D.S., who made the link between diet, genes, and health-through-generations, well before the concept existed. We also owe thanks to British geneticists James D. Watson and Francis Crick, who identified the structure of DNA in the early 1950s; and the relatively recent discoveries by Swedish epidemiologist Lars Olov Bygren, Ph.D., and British geneticist Marcus Pembrey, Ph.D., who not only revealed that diet affects genes and whether they express through wellness or illness, but also that gene expression can be passed on to the next generation. Clearly, these foundational discoveries, which show that food and nutrition are far more important than we previously realized, provide the thesis of this book. In this regard, we also want to acknowledge the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation in Lemon Grove, California, whose work is exceedingly relevant to this book.
