A Primitive Diet is a book of information and recipes free from gluten, yeast, sugar, dairy products, large amounts of meat and grain, and processed foods that today are a major proportion of the modern "western" diet. These recipes are suitable for people of all ages. Don't be put off trying them just because you consider yourself healthy ... you'll be surprised at the gourmet delights within. What did Primitive Man eat? He gathered fruits, berries, nuts, greens and roots from the soil. Herbs were his medicine. If he was quick and cunning he caught a small animal, fish or bird, or would have found a bird's egg. The exciting recipes contained between these covers have been created by Beverley Southam from Primitive Man's vast outdoor pantry, to solve serious health problems of her family many years ago. There is nothing boring about this fresh, wholesome diet. Savour the the taste of Fresh Tomato Soup, Ceviche (a Mexican dish), Salsas, Marinated Fresh Fruit. Feast on Fish in Banana Leaves, Raw Apple Pie complemented with healthy fresh drinks - Strawberry Crush, Iced Pineapple Tea, Orange and Avocado Smoothie. Try healthy treats from around the world. Entertain your family and friends on your special diet without them knowing it's supposed to be diet food. Included for those who miss their bread and cakes, there are recipes of dampers, pizza bases, cakes and cookies in which to indulge - gluten-free, yeast-free, sugar-free and dairy-free of course! And ... who said to be on a special diet is boring?

Land Labour And Diet In Northern Rhodesia

This reprint of a study by Dr. Audrey Richards (1899-1984) describes the living conditions of the Bemba of North-Eastern Rhodesia, with special reference to the effects of migrant labour on the social and economic life of a mainly agricultural society. Although primarily concerned with the production, distribution, and consumption of food, and with conditions of labour and standards of living, the book gives a vivid picture of the social structure of the Bemba - their political organisation and the functions of the chief, systems of land-tenure, kinship groupings, and the whole complex of economic, social, and magico-religious factors which arise in any community. The book has been widely recognised as an authoritative study particularly among economists and anthropologists.

The Atkins diet has transformed the lives of millions of people, revolutionizing grocery store shelves, restaurant menus, and dinner-table conversations. But there are questions beyond its efficacy and longevity. Is the Atkins diet a new wrinkle in capitalist exploitation or a twisted expression of negative body images? Is it a symbol of super-masculinity? Has the Atkins diet really been around for centuries under other names? Can it increase intelligence, or cause global warming and melt the polar ice caps? How does Atkins fit into Kant’s conception of the moral life, or Rousseau’s vision of a kinder, gentler human society? The Atkins Diet and Philosophy wittily explores these and other pressing questions in sixteen entertaining essays. Following the same fun, readable approach as earlier volumes in this series, this book uses philosophy to put the Atkins diet under the microscope, and uses the Atkins diet to teach vital philosophical lessons for life.

Nutrition And Caries

For many years we have known that dental caries is one of the most common diseases of mankind. Only few people have sound teeth till the end of life. Formerly we thought that the only possibility to keep our teeth in good state was to go to the dentist regularly. Since we know how complicated our nutrition is we know too that we have to regard the composition of our food as a principal factor influencing the state of our teeth. The trace-elements e. g. play an important role. Studies with tracers during the last decades have shown that the minerals are metabolized very actively by living organisms. Thus research in our laboratory, together with Prof. SIZOO and Prof. OOLS, has demon strated that intravenously injected radio-active phosphorus has disap peared from the blood already half an hour after injection. Even the hard dental substance participates in this active metabolism.

The Origins Of Human Diet And Medicine

People have always been attracted to foods rich in calories, fat, and protein; yet the biblical admonition that meat be eaten "with bitter herbs" suggests that unpalatable plants play an important role in our diet. So-called primitive peoples show a surprisingly sophisticated understanding of how their bodies interact with plant chemicals, which may allow us to rediscover the origins of diet by retracing the paths of biology and culture. The domestication of the potato serves as the focus of Timothy Johns's interdisciplinary study, which forges a bold synthesis of ethnobotany and chemical ecology. The Aymara of highland Bolivia have long used varieties of potato containing potentially toxic levels of glycoalkaloids, and Johns proposes that such plants can be eaten without harm owing to human genetic modification and cultural manipulation. Drawing on additional fieldwork in Africa, he considers the evolution of the human use of plants, the ways in which humans obtain foods from among the myriad poisonous and unpalatable plants in the environment, and the consequences of this history for understanding the basis of the human diet. A natural corollary to his investigation is the origin of medicine, since the properties of plants that make them unpalatable and toxic are the same properties that make them useful pharmacologically. As our species has adapted to the use of plants, plants have become an essential part of our internal ecology. Recovering the ancient wisdom regarding our interaction with the environment preserves a fundamental part of our human heritage.

'Hegemonic nutrition' is produced and proliferated by a wide variety of social institutions such as mainstream nutrition science, clinical nutrition as well as those less classically linked such as life science/agro-food companies, the media, family, education, religion and the law. The collective result is an approach to and practice of nutrition that alleges not only one single, clear-cut and consented-upon set of rules for 'healthy eating,' but also tacit criteria for determining individual fault, usually some combination of lack of education, motivation, and unwillingness to comply. Offering a collection of critical, interdisciplinary replies and responses to the matter of 'hegemonic nutrition' this book presents contributions from a wide variety of perspectives; nutrition professionals and lay people, academics and activists, adults and youth, indigenous, Chicana/o, Latina/o, Environmentalist, Feminist and more. The critical commentary collectively asks for a different, more attentive, and more holistic practice of nutrition. Most importantly, this volume demonstrates how this 'new' nutrition is actually already being performed in small ways across the American continent. In doing so, the volume empowers diverse knowledges, histories, and practices of nutrition that have been marginalized, re-casts the objectives of dietary intervention, and most broadly, attempts to revolutionize the way that nutrition is done.

The Influence of Teeth, Diet, and Habits on the Human Face discusses the relation between dental health, diet, and habits to the facial characteristics of humans. The book is comprised of 12 chapters that cover the various aspects of the relationship of the said variables. The text first compares the facial traits of primitives and civilized peoples, and then proceeds to differentiating the characteristics of primitive and modern diets. The next chapter discusses disparity between meat and vegetable diet. The next five chapters deal topics related to dental health, such as tooth diseases among primitive tribes, establishing racial links through analyzing teeth, and some unusual dental customs. The remaining three chapters present the conclusion, review of related literature, and methodology of the study. The book will be of great interest to dentists, physicians, anthropologists, and sociologists.
