From the April 2005 Idaho Observer:
What if most of what you have been told about nutrition is a lie?
Sally Fallon of the Weston A. Price Foundation reveals the benefits of butter, eggs, raw milk and more...Sally Fallon founded the Weston A. Price Foundation in 1999 as a non-profit, tax-exempt charity to disseminate the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price, whose studies of isolated, non-industrialized peoples established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets. Dr. Price’s research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health, generation after generation, only when they consume nutrient-dense, whole foods and the vital, fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats.
The Weston A. Price Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism. It supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective, including accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting and nurturing therapies. Specific goals include establishment of universal access to clean, certified raw milk and a ban on the use of soy formula for infants. The board and membership of the Weston A. Price Foundation stand united in the belief that modern technology should be harnessed as a servant to the wise and nurturing traditions of our ancestors rather than used as a destructive force to the environment and human health; and that science and knowledge can validate those "wise and nurturing" traditions.
The April/May, 2005 edition of The Health Crusador magazine contains an important interview with Sally Fallon who reveals information that is essential to maintaining health in the years to come.

Food: Don’t be fooled by colorful packaging
If we are to survive as a culture, our understanding of nutrition, food and water will have to change. Regardless of what we are being taught, packaged, processed and chemically-preserved products marketed for our consumption as foods and beverages do not sustain life. They may be convenient and tickle our taste buds, but their failure as sources of nutrition are evident everywhere you look: We are a nation of the fattest people and yet dying of starvation; nearly every hospital in America is constantly under construction with new additions.
What children are learning about nutrition in schools and what adults are being conditioned to believe is just business—the business of selling us things we do not need. Healthy humans are, in essence, bad for most businesses.
Evidence of the statement above is found in the global push by government and organized medicine to regulate, control and deny our access to high-potency vitamins and supplements—which we need to counter the effects of nutritionally-deficient packaged and processed foods and drinks.
The work of Sally Fallon and the Weston A. Price Foundation is vital to our future viability as a culture and a species. We can minimize the effects of Codex (see pages 12-13) by rethinking our concepts of food to be primarily composed of whole, raw, nutritionally-dense and enzyme-rich, unprocessed fruits and vegetables grown by ourselves or our neighbors; our meats and dairy products to be produced locally by farmers who raise animals with our support.
Most of us will continue shopping at supermarkets until we are forced into acquiring food a different way. But, in the mean time, it is appropriate that we begin reducing our purchase and consumption of junk foods, start buying staples in quantity, spend some time picking fruit and harvesting vegetables in the fall and shaking hands with our local farmers while introducing them to the Weston A. Price Foundation.
It’s always good to find out the truth when something as critical as our health is failing from misconceptions. It’s even better when we find out that the truth opens up a whole new world of discovery and adventure.
