An overview
The Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation (PPNF) is one of the most unique health resource organizations in the world. Serving as a public, nonprofit educational organization, PPNF provides accurate information about whole foods and proper preparation techniques, soil improvement, natural farming and pure water, preventing disease and birth defects, avoiding personality disturbances and delinquency, enhancing the environment, and enabling all people to achieve long life and excellent health.

PPNF is dedicated to the principle that diets of healthy primitive and non-industrialized peoples must be our guide to healthy living in the 21st Century. The living laboratory of human society has proven that only traditional diets of whole foods can insure the survival of mankind.

Today, more than ever, the public needs access to accurate information in nutrition. For over 50 years, the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation has been providing the public and the healing professions with
historically accurate information about nutrient-dense foods from living soil.
