“Health is Nature’s reward for conformity to her laws” - Eugene Christian
“All we know is that all life must comply with certain natural laws in order to be free – for a man in the throes of disease is not free. He is a vassal, a slave. He is in bondage. He has himself fastened fetters on his flesh by his own foolishness – by disobeying nature’s laws”. Eugene Christian

“fat is precious above all things in the Arctic and caribou fat good to eat beyond most food of any kind”
Vilhjalmur Stefansson, ‘The Friendly Arctic’
“most explorers will agree that an Eskimo laughs as much in a month as the average white man laughs in a year. One reason why the Eskimo is happy is that in the uncivilized state he usually has enough wholesome food to keep him in perfect health. And if there is a royal road to happiness, it is through health.” Vilhjalmur Stefansson, ‘The Friendly Arctic’

Adventures in Diet By Vilhjalmur Stefansson - Harper’s Monthly Magazine, November 1935. - In 1906 I went to the Arctic with the foodtastes and beliefs of the average American. By 1918, after eleven years as an Eskimo among Eskimos, I had learned things which caused me to shed most of those beliefs….Click here to read article
The Fat Of The Land by Vilhjalmur Stefansson – Here is a book that should be read by everyone who eats meat. It will relieve unnecessary apprehension regarding the food we most enjoy. Of course it should be read by, or read to, everyone who does not eat meat. The most intensive consideration should come from all those who are working in the fields of nutrition and its allied science, dietetics. Vilhjalmur Stefansson states clearly the fact that men can remain in good health on a diet of meat alone. The evidence is ample and incontrovertible. (Highly recommended reading)

Air Corps United States Army ” Arctic Manual’ Volume 2 (1940) Section one of this book is on diet.
Here are some excerpts from section 1:
- Within the body of any single animal, land, sea, or air, is found a complete human diet, with the exception of skinny animals, such as rabbits and some birds, need supplementary fat. You could, so far as we know, live.3 score years and 10 on geese, for they have enough fat to counterbalance the lean. You could live equally long on rabbits if supplemented with baccn. On rabbit alone you would be ill in a few days. It is probably true that if one man has nothing but water and another has rabbit and water, they are likely to die in about the same length of time, from 3 to 8 weeks. The one who has just water dies of outright starvation; the other from diarrhoea and kidney afflictions.
- If you are on a meat diet you must have fat with your lean, the fat taking the place of the but- ter, cream, vegetable oils,sugar, and starches that are present in ordinary mixed diets. No hard-and-fast rule can be given for the proportions of lean and fat. The basic procedure is to eat by Palate-at each meal eat along with your lean as much fat as tastes good to you.
In a community that still keeps to its native wholly carniv- orous diet you never have scurvy, rickets, pelagra, or beri-beri. There is not one decayed tooth in a thousand heads among people who are wholly meat-eaters. Pyorrhea is rare or absent. Alveolar abcess seldom occurs.
-Apparently all people everywhere in the world who live mainly or solely on meat dislike and avoid salt.
- Cancer has not yet been reported from uncivllized Eskimos. - In short, it would appear that a diet consisting exclusively of meat is a complete diet even when bones are not chewed- that it contains all the stuffs necessary for health, including calcium and all the vitamins.
