Worthington (35) looks great! English-born Aussie.
I'm not exactly sure when factory food processing began, but I know I was surprised to find out that Sherman burned several well-established, large clothing factories in Roswell, GA, so those, at least, had been established for several decades at that point. I'm not sure when factory refining (and thus, much less expensive, and much more widely available amounts) of flour & sugar began, but that would have been when it first began to affect human health widely. It certainly affected some earlier; Benjamin Franklin is known both for his love of bread & his stout waist. But not enough to affect structures of children, it seems, until it was so widely available that it could begin to displace other important foods.
There are some portraits of Barrett online. It seems he was an actor, and his nose doesn't look *as* pinched in those pictures, but it does look a lot like my fathers, which is very deep (front to back) and narrow and is certainly part of the problem with my own nose, and his lower jaw looks narrowed. (But in the death mask, his cheekbones look rather strong and broad.) Interesting, b/c the rest really have amazingly excellent noses - well, except Aaron Burr's looks broken!
What a face John Calhoun had!
I recall Price noting the near universal correlation between facial structure and being susceptible to tuberculosis.

Sally Fallon has said that all of her five children have straight teeth with full eruption of the molars and no need for braces or teeth extraction to "make room". Maybe all it takes is a nutrient dense diet for the child, for his or her mother during pregnancy—and probably for both parents before conception.
I know she was unable to breastfeed, which implies something possibly deficient in her own nutritional status, but perhaps it could be more from her own nutritional inheritance, rather than her recent nutrient consumption.
His chapter on mineral depletion in the soil (and its correlation with lowering intellect and all manner of things) is startling, isn't it?
Think of all the vegetarians who think their children are getting all the Ca they need from green smoothies!
LOL, you betcha. That's actually one of the very few primitive norms that have already begun to be rediscovered in the US. My five weaned between 2.5 & 3.5. There's actually quite a growing number of families practicing "extended" bf'ing now. The AAP has raised its rec's to "up to two years and as long thereafter as mutually desired" and the WHO has recommended a two year *minimum*, IIRC.
I'm remembering that among primitive people children are sometimes breast-fed until as old as three
Bone broth is crucial for minerals, but I don't think we can get enough without soil replenishment. This is even a problem with organic food. The numbers on Mg that you gave are shocking.
