Publishing counselling & proofreading the Danish translation of Weston A. Price’s seminal work,
Nutrition & Physical Degeneration (1938) published by Qarrtsiluni Publishing in 2016.

Weston A. Price (1870-1948) was an American dentist, often referred to as “the Charles Darwin of nutrition.”
In the 1930s he pioneered the scientific fields of nutrition and odontology through academic research &
travel writings, when he and his wife travelled to the farthest corners of the world to visit and learn
about health from indigenous cultures. As he began to notice an increased level of odontological diseases
and a deterioration of mouth hygiene among his patients, he became increasingly interested in the
health of indigenous cultures, who still lived without the (mal)nutritious influence
of western food stuffs and modern health appliances.

What makes health? was the question he set out to investigate and the result was an impressive study
of anthropological observations mixed with travel writings & medical research. A seminal book that revolutionised modern health studies, an impressive heavy weighter of nearly 600 pages and 200 illustrations of very smiling people.


the science of nature – indigenous cultures – timeless wisdom

Taking its name from Inuit culture, the young Danish publisher, Henrik Kellerman Hansen, chose an island in the Bering Strait as backdrop for a publishing endeavour devoted to communicate the science of nature and the wisdom of indigenous cultures to the modern reader. Price’s book is Qarrtsiluni’s virgin publication.
