What is with this trend of citing 80 year old research?

Every time there is a post about nutrition, someone inevitably posts something from Weston Price or another article that is 80-100 years old and claims that it is "indispituble."

Do people think that our understanding of nutrition and biochemistry ceased 80 years ago? Is all of the research that contradicts the "natural" lifestyle invalid?

By the way, this claim about the anomers isn't even correct. Alpha and beta lactose are in equilibrium with each other and constantly shit back and forth, and HIGHER TEMPERATURES FAVOR THE ALPHA FORM. Plus, the different anomers have the same nutritional properties.
