    A Few Good Books

    You probably heard of Weston A Price, Robert McCarrison and Peter Cleave. Walter Yellowlees was new to me, he was mentioned on Kendrick's blog and some of the others look worth a read, not just for historical reasons.

    I don't know why - but I missed this post of yours from last July.

    Just had a look, and a lot to see, but this written in 1918 ...by Alfred W. McCann

    This Famishing World by Alfred W. McCann, George H. Doran, New York, 1918
    The subtitle says it all: "Food follies that maim and kill the rich and the poor -- that cheat the growing child and rob the prospective mother of health -- that burn up millions in treasure and fill untimely graves -- and the remedy." McCann was a journalist and food campaigner, and this is his story of what happens when food is divorced from its nature and function to become a mere industrial commodity. "Every pound of food juggled, changed, denatured or chemically treated is balanced by a pound of human flesh." Now more and more researchers are belatedly questioning the nutritional quality of our food, but most of them still only see a tiny part of the full picture McCann painted 84 years ago, and Price, McCarrison, the Cheshire medical panel, Pottenger, Cleave, Yellowlees and others after him. Full text online (with thanks to Kirk and Karen McLoren).

    As Chris kindly gave the link ...

    Yes, people need to be able to eat ... but what we do eat is so important.

    All the best Jan

    Another list of downloadable books here

    (rustle rustle) oh bugger they've gone! Well there used to be a source for John Yudkin's Pure White And Deadly and several others but it seems now taken down.

    Have a look round at some of the other resources, it's not what you would assume from the title
