for i have "experimented" upon myself - for long enough now - that
Human nutrition cannot possibly be achieved, without incurring in
pathological effects, through the means of "concentrated substan-
ces" - be these of animal or vegeterian sources - for these are bio-
logically inconsistent with Human physiology. If Dr. Price believed
what You believe, then He was obviously wrong, as wrong are
the quasi totality of His present day colleagues.

problem, but a problem nevertheless.The core problem is our failure
to identify the "root-why" we have come to a confrontational rela-
tionship with Nature. As long as we fail to find "the" answer to this
"why", i'm afraid we will be wasting our time in talking about and
acting upon simptoms, Human overpopulation being one of them.

- Hi all,
I just need to briefly interject one point. While yes I agree there are too
many people in the world, a bigger problem is overconsumption by the few in
the so-called developed world, many of whom actually believe all this stuff
is what they need and are used to, and our push to have the rest of the
world desire and also be dependant on lots of our junk vs. meeting basic
needs naturally and locally without destruction and disrespect.
It is an important note, because it actually places blame and belittles the
rest of the world and is usually us white folks or other from the "developed
world" who focus it that way. Meanwhile we consume 40% of the world's
resources and cause major environmental destruction, depletion, etc. etc.
Someone told me that every one American born is equivalent to 10 individuals
in terms of consumption, etc. I believe it.
I find it important daily to question that which us privileged and spoiled
believe to be reality in terms of needs, actions, thoughts, etc.
