The Pottenger Cat Experiments illustrate the genetic tendency principles.

In the 1940's Francis M. Pottenger (not Pottinger) M.D. began a ten year study using 900 cats to determine what effects processed foods have on the body, and to examine the genetic propensity of passing degenerative disease traits from generation to generation. The cats were divided into five groups with two of the groups fed raw whole foods and the other three groups cooked enzymeless foods. The cats were observed over a four generation period and the following results were documented by Doctor Pottenger:

POTTENGER CAT EXPERIMENT SUMMARY

GROUP A B C D E
FOOD FED Raw meat Raw milk Pasteurized milk Evaporated milk Condensed milk
1st Generation Remained healthy Remained healthy Developed diseases and illnesses near end of life
2nd Generation Remained healthy Remained healthy Developed diseases and illnesses in middle of life
3rd Generation Remained healthy Remained healthy Developed diseases and illnesses in beginning of life; many died before six months of age;
4th Generation Remained healthy Remained healthy No fourth generation was produced: either third generation parents were sterile, or fourth generation cats were aborted before birth

Pottenger's cats study gives insight into why children today are getting degenerative diseases that used to only show up in humans at an age of 50 years or older.

What's alarming about this study is that the levels of health get progressively worse with each generation. The four generations of cats were observed over ten years. It takes approximately 20 years to beget a generation of humans so the same study would take over 80 years in people . Of course no such study is being done, but it's easy to observe that there is a tremendouse increase in heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and autoimmune diseases over the last eighty years. There is however a decrease in infectious disease so we may be living slightly longer. Let's look a little closer.

GENETIC POTENTIAL
Diseases are not inherited; rather only the tendency or potential of a disease is passed on from parents to offspring. The disease tendency is transferred by way of the genetic code. A genetic tendency is only a potential disease though. A genetic weakness does not have to manifest as a disease unless there are factors that exploit that weakness (poor diet, for example).

These genetic weaknesses will get worse with each succeeding generation if they continue in a enzymeless nutrient poor diet. The study proved that genetic weakness becomes more evident with each generation, but more importantly, that there comes a point when it becomes totally out of control. This is evident in the fourth generation.

Here's what Dr. Pottenger said, "While no attempt will be made to correlate the changes in the animals studied with malformations found in humans, the similarity is so obvious that parallel pictures will suggest themselves."
