The Weston A. Price Foundation is looking for our help to continue research on just how important traditional nutrient-dense diets are to our health. This research is much needed to counteract the diet dogma that the private corporations such as Monsanto spew forth.

A Note from WAPF
“The research lab is the Burnsides Research Laboratory at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, which for many years has been guided by the esteemed Dr. Fred Kummerow. It was Dr. Kummerow who over 40 years ago performed research showing the damaging effects of trans fatty acids, a fact which Americans now take for granted.
Today, at age 98, he continues to do research on the causes of heart disease. Just as we have predicted, Dr. Kummerow has shown a link between oxidized cholesterol, vegetable oils and heart disease. (See this link:http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/02/130227151254.htm and the text below this letter for more information on Dr. Kummerow’s latest research.)”
“And Dr. Kummerow’s legacy continues with the work of post-doctorate Chris Masterjohn, PhD. Chris is using the Burnsides Lab to study the interactions between fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K, examining the protective effects of vitamins A and K on soft tissue calcification otherwise caused by vitamin D consumed in isolation. Chris’s research will provide important insights into the fat-soluble vitamins, the key to healthy traditional diets, as discovered by Dr. Weston Price. […]
- Chris Masterjohn, PhD, can do further research on the fat-soluble vitamins, including the testing of various foods for levels of vitamins A, D, and K.
- We can research harmful additives in our foods, such as hexane.
- We can investigate the impacts of various cooking and preparation techniques on the nutrient profile of the foods we eat.
This is the opportunity we have dreamed of–to do the research that will answer the questions we have about nutrient-dense traditional diets.”
