I stumbled across this article today, http://www.smnweekly.com/add-years-to-your-life-by-eating-oatmeal-and-other-grain-products/8843/ Have we been doing it wrong? I'm thinking of switching back to mass oatmeal.
These studies are often skewed, and funded by companies that sell "whole" grain products, so the outcomes are not very surprising. This article describes how the results are skewed and, most importantly, correlation is not causation. Will Eating... (more)
This isn't strictly related to Paleo, but an interesting idea. http://www.vice.com/en_uk/read/rob-rhinehart-no-longer-requires-food Thought it might be of conversational interest to the Paleo community here - particularly because I'm interested... (more)
Recent news: our ancestors were actually an alien race that dropped us off on planet earth, 35,000 years ago. This race evolved to eat sugar, bread, chocolate and coffee, BUT this diet ONLY works if you ingest NO healthy food at all
Looks like Dr Oz may have learned a thing or two from all of his exposure to the paleo diet. Reconsiders fats, meats, low-fat diets, grains, gluten, dairy, among other things. Considering that this is appearing in mainstream media, especially as... (more)
Dr. Oz says one thing one day, then the complete opposite the next. It just depends on who his sponsor is that particular day. It's kind of hard to take anything he says seriously.
I just came across this news story. It claims that: Lowering cholesterol could help the body's immune system fight viral infections... when the body succumbs to a viral infection a hormone in the immune system lowers... (more)
Undoubtedly everyone is aware of the food shortages around the world that have sparked violence recently. This is not meant to be a political question. I find it interesting and wonder how some of us would survive without our staples... (more)
I need to stop reading nutrition articles on CNN or I might rage and smash my monitor. Here's today's gem: http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/11/11/weight.loss.race/index.html?hpt=C2 The headline is "The bottom-line diet: Eat less" The whole point... (more)
Mainstream media outlets are the processed carbs of mass communication.
So the NY Daily Times posted this article http://www.nydailynews.com/lifestyle/health/2010/05/22/2010-05-22_following_glutenfree_diet_without_having_celiac_disease_can_be_harmful_to_health.html It says that going gluten free as a non celiac is... (more)
Yeah, this is just total BULL. Vegetables and fruits beat grains hands-down in terms of not only nutrient density, but nutrient AVAILABILITY. They're not chock full of antinutrients like grains and legumes are. Also, about the fiber thing, are ya... (more)
I saw that we have an ongoing thread for Paleo quotes so I thought it'd be cool to have a place to put new Paleo articles that come out. Especially easy to digest ones such as this Reuters article. Reuters: Cancer Cells Slurp Fructose. (Fruit... (more)
Here is the article, published yesterday. I, for one, found it unexpectedly refreshing - the first article I've seen in the mainstream press in which a gluten-free lifestyle is not immediately dismissed but instead acknowledged as a viable option... (more)
I enjoyed the article. I also was happy to see them mention that boxed/processed foods that say "gluten free" do not translate into "healthy." This is definitely showing gluten free as acceptable and doable (albeit difficult).
Saw this on TV this morning and then on Yahoo: http://news.yahoo.com/sugar-regulated-toxin-researchers-180605186.html They are making the case that sugar is toxic and should be regulated. I'm just happy to see that this even made a splash. Could... (more)
Taxing saturated fat = bad! Taxing sugar = good! Wait, what? Perhaps we shouldn't have professors and politicians making our personal decisions regarding nutrition for us.
This is an offshoot from another question (here) but it seemed good enough to warrant its own thread. Has going Paleo affected how you view the news/media information? If CW was so dead wrong about nutrition, are they right about anything?... (more)
I was a skeptic before I found paleo... now I'm cynical/skeptical of almost everything I hear. My non-skeptic/SAD friends probably think I'm a big ol Debbie Downer. As far as the news goes, I trust Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart more than any... (more)
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-16048121 Thoughts? It's good to know that scientists are wisening up to the poor training practices that can happen. Do you think this article is a breakthrough for CW? (more)

Paleo-friendly News Article While I'm not always keen on Foxnews (I have it added to my Pulse so I can spy on the enemy), I was pleasantly surprised to wake up this morning and see this article. While it doesn't come out and say "Paleo" anywhere... (more)
