Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation has preserved and disseminated the research of nutrition pioneer Weston A. Price, DDS, author of the influential Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.

Subsequently, the Foundation added the complementary research data and collections of Francis M. Pottenger, Jr., MD, FACP, author of Pottenger's Cats, a brilliant study on diet and physical degeneration in cats.

Today, their archives include the work of many other leaders in the field of nutrition research, including:

The Foundation's most important obligation is to preserve and disseminate the research of Price and Pottenger, to protect it against misuse or misinterpretations, and to collect, coordinate, and disseminate historical, anthropological and scientific information on nutrition, diet, and health, from preconception care through geriatrics.

Whether you are a consumer, patient, teacher, student, parent, researcher or health care provider, you can access a wealth of information through PPNF.  Their library facility houses over 10,000 historical and contemporary references pertaining to nutrition, health and the environment.

When you become a member of the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation, you will have access to the volumes of information they share with their members. Your support of PPNF is also an investment in an organization that is completely independent of commercial interests and committed to serving the public.
