The organic movement is a contemporary success story but the seeds of its success were sown as early as the 1930s and 1940s, when a group of scientists, farmers and doctors raised challenging questions
about the relationship between farming methods and human health.

Lionel Picton's Thoughts on Feeding is the ground-breaking work of a Cheshire doctor who was ahead of his time in the way he linked diet, health and the way in which food is produced. His subject is just as relevant today, in a society where mass produced, highly processed foods have become dominant and obesity has reached epidemic proportions.

Thoughts on Feeding is re-published to celebrate the 60th birthday of the Soil Association with a new foreword by Patrick Holford and an introduction by Philip Conford.

Lionel Picton

Lionel Picton was a 20th century Cheshire doctor who campaigned throughout his life for the role of proper diet in health to be recognised. Specifically, he believed in the health benefits of crops grown in healthy, nutrient rich soils, which we would today recognise as organic growing.
