It’s about a dentist who traveled to isolated areas of the world to study dental health of people not influenced by western civilization. What he found was healthy, straight, decay free teeth.

In comparison civilized people tend to eat low-fat foods, refined sugar, vegetable oils and processed foods. All foods which can result in nutritional deficiencies.
This study was done by Weston A. Price, DDS who uncovered that people consuming a more traditional diet, rich in essential nutrients have healthier teeth. Further he discovered that fat-soluble vitamins A, D and K are vital for a healthy body and key for mineral absorption.
