Weston A. Price Foundation
| Potentially edible!|
The Weston A. Price Foundation is, according to its website, a "nutrition education foundation." This nutrition education includes claiming that eating lots of fat, meat, and raw (but not pasteurized) dairy is healthy, and that natural things are better than "artificial" ones.
The Weston A. Price Foundation is unrelated to the Weston A. Price Memorial Foundation, which is the old name of the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation.
