The Lee Principle of Nutrition states that the whole nutrient complex is greater than the sum of its parts. Just as no single component of a watch keeps the time, no single chemical accounts for the functional action of the entire nutrient complex. Vitamins are bundles of nutritional factors that create a vitamin effect. Only in whole unprocessed food does the synergistic balance of nutritional components yield that vitamin effect to a living body.
— Mark R. Anderson
While modern nutrition gropes in the dark to explain why Americans are so ill, Dr. Royal Lee showed clearly in the early and mid twentieth century the connection between malnutrition at the hand of processed and refined foods and modern disorders such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. In the recordings here, taken from the Lectures of Royal Lee Volume II, Dr. Lee discusses some of the foundational principles of his nutritional philosophy—essential knowledge for anyone interested in knowing the true relationship between food and health.
