Weston A. Price Foundation

The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the American diet through education, research and activism and 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. There are many chapters of the WAPF in the Bay Area as well as all over the country. Think about joining up and becoming part of this growing food movement, bringing back food to the way it was meant to be.

This study, The Gut Microbiota – masters of host development and physiology, examines the importance of the gastrointestinal  microorganisms (Felix Sommerand Fredrik Bäckhed - University of Gothenberg) and its great influence on human health.

Research over the past decade has accumulated a large body of evidence linking alterations in the gut microbial composition to several diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease, asthma, arthritis, obesity and cardiovascu- lar disease. Furthermore, it is now clear that the normal intestinal microbiota also influences numerous physio- logical aspects in the healthy host, including organ mor- phogenesis, immune system and gastrointestinal tract development and maturation, intestinal vascularization, tissue regeneration, carcinogenesis, bone homeostasis, metabolism and behaviour.
