Pottenger's Cats is a classic in the science of nutrition. Dr. Pottenger discovered quite by accident that cats degenerated unless they were fed raw food. In his 10-year study of 900 cats, he found the optimal diet for his cats was 2/3 raw meat and 1/3 raw milk plus a little cod liver oil. If either the meat or the milk was cooked, the cats degenerated. And if both were cooked, the degeneration was much worse, and the cats could no longer reproduce by the third generation.
Some of the problems Pottenger found in the cats fed cooked food were: heart problems; nearsightedness and farsightedness; underactivity and inflammation of the thyroid; infections of the kidney, liver, testes, ovaries and bladder; arthritis and inflammation of the joints; inflammation of the nervous system with paralysis and meningitis. And in the third generation, some of the cats' bones became as soft as rubber. Lung problems, and bronchitis and pneumonia were also frequent. Moreover, the females became... Read more
While the study on cats is depressing (as a cat lover) I found it eye opening. It is more heart breaking because this is exactly what we have done to ourselves. We are literally starving our bodies and are falling apart. As our bodies fall apart, the medical community continues to label new much so that a new set of diagnosis codes has to be created just to handle them and the ones they know will come in the future. As a doctor, I have seen people improve just by improving what they put in their mouths. Changing our diets to more whole foods...REAL food...makes a BIG difference! If you want to see what we are doing to ourselves and our children, this is the perfect place to start reading. something about it!
Careful, the nutritional information in this book tells us only about a cat's diet, not a human's diet. Pottenger conducted these studies in the 1930s. It was not known at that time that the amino acid taurine was an essential nutrient in the diet of a cat. Search for the word taurine in his book and you will not find it. By cooking the meat scraps, Pottenger destroyed the taurine. His cats therefore suffered from, and exhibited all the marks of taurine deficiency. Taurine is not one of the essential amino acids for humans, because our body can manufacture it. There is hardly any taurine in milk or cod liver oil. For more information please refer to [...] It is possible for modern cat food makers to offer canned (cooked) food and add taurine to it. As to whether or not raw meat is better for cats, I don't know, but it is a subject I am very much interested in, as it certainly seems plausible.
