Another really good book is by weston a price "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration". (the website is above...but the book is incrediable to actually see pictures.) He was a dentist is the 1920's? and he traveled the world to see what healthy primitive people with little dental decay eat. He has before and after pictures in the book of people who had very bad teeth and bone structure and then were cured.
He used cod liver oil for the high vit D and grassfed raw (yellow) butter for an componant called 'activator x'. that activated or increased the absorbtion of minerals.
