Weston A. Price (6 septembre 1870 à Newburgh, Ontario-23 janvier 1948 à Santa Monica) est un dentiste et un nutritionniste américain.

Biographie[modifier | modifier le code]

Il a été le dirigeant de la section de recherche de l'American Dental Association (en) de 1914 à 1923[1] mais a été plus tard marginalisé par cette association pour ses positions sur l'endodontie. Après avoir vendu son cabinet dentaire, il effectue dès 1930, à seulement 60 ans, un voyage de 12 années sur tous les continents afin d'étudier différentes peuplades isolées du monde. Il en arrive à démontrer que la carie est apparue moins d'une génération après l'ouverture des routes et des voies ferrées, soit en moyenne vingt ans après le début de l'importation de produits raffinés[2].
