Why It Is Important To Focus On Children’s Nutrition 2

PARENTS WANT THE BEST FOR THEIR CHILDREN

As parents, we can agree that a child’s physical well-being is the most important factor in a child’s life and that a child cannot survive without food (Why It Is Important To Focus on Children’s Nutrition 1).  Admittedly, as parents we don’t want our children to merely survive.  We want our children to be healthy and disease-free for life.


THE POTTENGER CAT STUDY

What can a Cat Study show us? 

The Pottenger Cat Study illustrates clearly that food choices  not only affect one’s health but also the health of offspring, as well as offspring’s children.

Mr. Francis M. Pottenger, Jr. accidentally discovered that his laboratory cats who ate raw meat scraps were much healthier than those on cooked cat food.  He thereafter embarked on a 10 year study to determine the effects of foods on cats from 1932 to 1942.

THE MEAT STUDY

As you can see from the chart below, the cats fed raw meat and raw milk were healthy for four (4) generations, while the group fed cooked meat and raw milk developed many diseases and died out by the fourth generation.

GROUP 1 GROUP 2
FOOD FED
 

2/3 raw meat1/3 raw milk 

Cod liver oil

2/3 cooked meat1/3 raw milk 

Cod liver oil

GENERATION 1 

healthy developed degenerative diseases, became quite lazy
GENERATION 2 

healthy developed degenerative diseases by mid-life, started losing their coordination
GENERATION 3 

healthy developed degenerative diseases very early in life, some born blind and weak, had a much shorter life span, many couldn’t even produce offspring, abundance of parasites and vermin, skin diseases and allergies increased to over 90 percent, kittens did not survive six months, bones became soft and pliable, cats suffered from adverse personality changes, males became docile, females became more aggressive
GENERATION 4 

healthy suffered from most of the degenerative diseases encountered in human medicine, died out totally by the fourth generation

THE MILK STUDY

As you can see from the chart below, the cats fed raw meat and raw milk were healthy for four (4) generations, while the group fed raw meat and processed milk developed many diseases and died out by the fourth generation.  It is interesting to note that groups C and D degenerated more quickly than groups B and E.  Male kittens in group E1 developed rickets and died early deaths.


GROUP A GROUP B, C, D & E
FOOD FED 1/3 raw meat, 

cod liver oil,

2/3 raw milk

B: 1/3 raw meat, cod liver oil, 2/3 pasteurized milk 

C: 1/3 raw meat, cod liver oil, 2/3 evaporated milk

D: 1/3 raw meat, cod liver oil, 2/3 sweetened condensed milk

E: Raw metabolized vitamin D milk
(E1: Milk from cows on dry feed
E2: Milk from cows on green feed)

GENERATION 1 healthy developed diseases and illnesses near end of life
GENERATION 2 healthy developed diseases and illnesses near end of life
GENERATION 3 healthy developed diseases and illnesses in beginning of life; many died before six months of age
GENERATION 4 healthy no fourth generation was produced: either third generation parents were sterile, or fourth generation cats were aborted before birth

DISEASE REVERSAL

According to the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation, “Dr. Pottenger tried to return degenerating cats to health. He found that it took four generations on raw meat and raw milk to bring the kittens of second-generation degenerating cats back to normal. This experiment could not occur with third-generation degenerating cats because they did not live long enough to reproduce.”

 

LET’S AGREE THEN THAT BASED ON THE POTTENGER CAT STUDY THAT:

1. food consumed heavily influences one’s long-term physical health

2. food consumed affects one’s children

3. food consumed affects one’s family for generations, and

4. food consumed can reverse degeneration.
