He’s been called the Einstein of Nutrition. But he was a mechanical genius too, with countless patents and inventions to his name that can be found in everything from standing food mixers to electric dental drills. He was also a farmer, a researcher, an activist, and a philanthropist who was decorated by humanitarian and scientific societies alike. Yet few people today have ever heard of Dr. Royal Lee.
It’s a sad truth that people ahead of their time are often maligned in their time. Our mission at RoyalLee.com is not to exaggerate the works of this great man but to present them fairly, so that minds of the current age can assess for themselves the scope and merit of his contributions to humankind, particularly in the field to which he dedicated his life, human nutrition.
Only in retrospect can the greatness of some be truly appreciated. It’s time for history to catch up to Dr. Royal Lee.
