Dr. Price is a pioneer in proving the diet-health link. A decade of research took him around the world, where he documented the dietary habits of traditional peoples of various racial backgrounds. His research was done at a time when many such groups still lived free of the influence of Western civilization and what he called "foods of commerce," or heavily refined and denatured foods.

Dr. Enig is a true expert on the subject of fats. She is a nutritionist/biochemist of international renown for her research on the nutritional aspects of fats and oils, as well as a consultant, clinician, and the Director of the Nutritional Sciences Division of Enig Associates, Inc. She has served as a Contributing Editor of the scientific journal Clinical Nutrition and a Consulting Editor of the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. She was an early critic of the use of trans fatty acids and advocated their inclusion in nutritional labeling; the scientific mainstream is now challenging the food product industry's use of trans-containing partially hydrogenated vegetable oils.
The authors of this book are a nutritionist and an ecologist, and they document that we are breaking down our soil ecosystem and that modern-day agriculture is out of sync with nature. Artificial soil produces artificial food. Today's mineral-deficient soil may be "one of the greatest original sources of disease." This book is a wake-up call. You will never look at a plate of pasta or the produce isle in the grocery store the same way again.
