Are you interested in meeting people north and west of Boston who appreciate healthy, nutrient-dense foods?
Then you might consider joining the Westford Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF). The Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization, co-founded in 1999 by Sally Fallon Morell and nutritionist, Mary G. Enig, PhD, to disseminate the research of nutrition pioneer, Dr. Weston A. Price (1870-1948), whose studies of isolated, non-industrialized peoples established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets.
The Weston A. Price Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the American diet through education, research and activism. Dr. Weston A. Price, a Cleveland dentist, was deeply interested in finding out the cause of dental problems such as caries, crowded and crooked teeth, malformed facial structure, etc. He traveled the world studying primitive and civilized cultures and found out that the diets between the two populations were vastly different in nutritional content. He found that those people who had healthy mouths (and bodies), had nutrient-dense diets originating from their natural surroundings. Those populations with poor health ate a diet of modern civilization including white flour, white sugar, highly processed, and nutrient-poor foods.
The Weston A. Price Foundation has created guidelines for healthful eating: WAPF GUIDELINES and WAPF DIETARY DANGERS. What’s more, there are many benefits to joining the Weston A. Price Foundation. Please join WAPF to be better informed and support the mission.
The Westford Chapter offers meetings at least once per month to foster community and the exchange of information about nutrition and health. The chapter is here to support persons looking for local, unadulterated foods like organic produce, quality whole milk, and pasture-fed meats as well as other healthful resources. Contact us for more information including upcoming events found around the Westford, Massachusetts Area.
