So I was reading an article on WholeHealthSource.com about the importance of fiber in the human diet (which I highly recommend everyone here read: http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/2009/12/butyric-acid-ancient-controller-of.html) and one of... (more)
We should keep in mind that if they did eat grains they probably took steps to make them more digestible by fermenting them. Also, what the researchers call "grains" aren't the grains that the agricultural revolution started mass producing many... (more)

Just the question as it stands, really. Is anyone out there familiar enough with this academic community to know if the diet has taken on? And when I say anthropologists I mean the scientific kind (physical anthropology, etc.), not the ones who... (more)
Which Anthropologists have endorsed or commented on "paleo" eating as practiced by Robb Wolf et al?
well i in some sorts consider myself an anthropologist, hehe, as i majored in the subject. ya know, i think following a traditional diet is nothing but a NO BRAINER. I myself got an epiphany while living abroad. Within 3 months of living in a... (more)
I'm applying for a PhD in Anthropology. My research focus is not so much on the biochemical and nutritional components as in the social components of the Paleo movement: questions from 'Can the world population be healthfully sustained on a paleo... (more)
I was just wondering...is it right to suppose that eating animal protein at every meal may not technically be "paleo", historically/anthropologically speaking, because animal protein was likely not readily available to our ancestors at every meal?... (more)
I got super excited today when I searched Google News today and saw this... "Blame Your Crooked Teeth on Early Farmers" (Wired.com), "For Perfect Teeth, Start Hunting and Gathering" (History.com), and "Wisdom teeth hurt? Blame your ancient... (more)
I hadn't been to the dentist in over 10 years and while my check-up went pretty well--and subsequent cleaning the following week in which the hygenist stated "you do a pretty good job, you can probably wait another year before your next cleaning"... (more)
I recently heard from a friend that they had read in an Anthropology magazine, that there is evidence that our ancestors ate sedge grass, and lots of it. What is sedge grass? Does it contain gluten? Should it be considered a grain or vegetable?... (more)
I am going to school very soon and I am extremely interested in anthropology and different sciences.. what can I do with this kind of degree? Maybe a degree in anthropology and a degree in biomechanical engineering? That would be cool... (more)
With a combination of biochemistry and anthropology, you'd be in a unique position to make a valuable contribution to our understanding of human health. See if you can somehow throw in some evolution and/or neurology.
Paleohacks is a place to discuss small "hacks" we can apply to our lives to make them better: "A "hack" is a shortcut, rule-of-thumb, or simply a good way to get something done quickly." I don't think anyone would argue that sexual orientation,... (more)
Quite often in my reading, I come across a thought that goes something like this (I'm paraphrasing): "Though early man had a life-span much shorter than ours, somewhere around 30 years on average, he suffered none of our modern debilitating... (more)
What would you like to ask a contempory hunter gatherer? Survival International gives you the opportunity to record a video question: "Record a video message for the Aw??" What would you ask? Will you use this possibility? (more)
This article searches exactly on this questions. Probably it has some nice parts. It can give some answers to questions you maybe had for a long time. Have you seen this article before. What do you learn through this... (more)
For shits n gigs, I'm watching 'How Beer Saved the World' and although filled with shaky claims IMO, I think their theory on the origin of agriculture has some merit. After all, why else go through tons of processing in order to make grains... (more)
I just came accross the BBC special from the 1990s, called The Human Animal, about the research of Desmond Morris. I'm watching part of it now. He's also the author of The Naked Ape. Granted, I'm interested in evolutionary psychology and... (more)
