Filmmaker leads local branch of grass roots fight for traditional foods
Kimberly Hartke describes the fast-growing group of nutritionists and regular folks this way: “… [Weston Price] Foundation members eschew processed foods … and … prefer food from traditional, mixed use farms rather than industrial scale factory farms.”
His painstaking documentation demonstrated that people in traditional cultures worldwide shared two things: generally good health – excluding non-food-related infections like malaria – and omnivorous diets based on whole, raw, and fermented foods.
We applaud the efforts of the WAP Foundation and remarkable local leaders like Kristin Canty to put food safety in perspective.
The tiny risk of infection from “living” raw foods is both wildly exaggerated and utterly manageable … while their benefits versus refined, processed counterparts are becoming increasingly clear.
And raw food risks pale in comparison to the devastating effects that diets based on heavily refined, processed foods exert on hundreds of millions of Americans … such as high and rising rates of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and dementia.
As crusading film maker Kristin Canty says, “Without Food Freedom…We are Not Free”!
