Delve Into the Life and Work of Nutrition Visionary Dr. Royal Lee

Dr. Lee website

Researcher. Farmer. Activist. Inventor. Philanthropist. And the “Einstein of nutrition.”

Hailed as the greatest nutritionist of the 20th century, Dr. Royal Lee spent his life demonstrating the validity of his holistic nutritional philosophy—even though the word “holistic” didn’t exist in his day. Decades ahead of his time, Lee pioneered the revolutionary research proving that the ultimate cause of most modern disease is malnutrition.

Though Lee predicted that industrially produced foods would lead the nation to the brink of declining health—a prediction that has largely come to pass—powerful institutions that stood to lose profits suppressed his research, and they continue to do so to this day. Now you can explore the life and work of this champion of nutrition at a new website dedicated to his legacy:

“One of the biggest tragedies of human civilization is the precedence of chemical therapy over nutrition. It’s a substitution of artificial therapy over nature, of poisons over food, in which we are feeding people poisons trying to correct the reactions of starvation.” Dr. Lee’s words have been proven true time and again since he made this statement in 1951.

Lee’s groundbreaking research exposed the fraud that synthetic vitamins function the same as vitamin complexes found in food. The reality paints a different picture: manufactured vitamins have negative health consequences. Dr. Lee also raised the alarm about so-called “diseases of civilization”—afflictions almost unknown to the human race before the advent of industrial food processing.

Although Dr. Lee’s research has been vindicated by study after study, billion-dollar industries still try to confuse the public with dangerous food falsehoods. He debunked many of these commonly believed nutrition myths long ago and put nutrition facts in their place:

  • Animal fats do not causes heart attacks.
  • Antioxidants do not create a nutrient effect.
  • Low-fat diets do not promote weight loss.

A prolific inventor, Lee also set out to improve the nation’s widespread nutrition deficiencies by creating the first whole food supplements. His legendary formulations are still produced by Standard Process to this day.

Dr. Lee’s findings threatened food manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and the medical field, so it’s no surprise that he was targeted by these deep-pocketed interests and their governmental allies, including the FDA.
