What is the Western A Price Foundation?

Hi All

As many of you know I have been a follower of the work of Western A Price for a number of years now. I have recently established a chapter of the Western A.Price Foundation (WAPF) in Manchester, England. This chapter aims to promote his ideas and teachings in the local area. So I thought a bit of background on the WAPF would not go a miss.

The WAPF is a nonprofit, charity that was founded in 1999. It’s aim is to promote the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price, whose studies of isolated nonindustrialized peoples and thier diets and how this related to thier health. Dr. Price’s research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health for many generations when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats.

The Western A.Price Foundation is dedicated to restoring these 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 nutritional information, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and plain English labeling, and nurturing therapies.

Current goals include the establishment of universal access to clean, certified raw milk and a ban on the use of soy in baby foods.

The Foundation seeks to establish a laboratory to test nutrient content of foods, particularly butter produced under various conditions; to conduct research into the “X Factor,” discovered by Dr. Price; and to determine the effects of traditional preparation methods on nutrient content and availability in whole foods.

The Foundation is headed up by the great Sally Fellon (Nourishing Traditions Fame), and has a large number of great people involved. Fingers crossed you will be hearing more from them in our interview series in the coming weeks.

For more info look at the site, or join up as a member and help support this great organisation.

Have a happy, healthy day!
