I see a lot of papers flying aroung when browsing around the Paleo circles, but my bookmarking strategy is not sophisticated enough to keep track of all of them.

Is there anybody with a list of good papers on subjects like saturated fat, cholesterol, low carb, omega-3/omega-6, lectins, ...

I would be nice to have it handy for easy rebuttal of skeptics.

Cherrypicking. So easy a caveman could do it.

I can't remember where I saw it first, but I did see Kresser's take on it. It's been making the rounds this week for sure.

That's a nice paper rebutting most of the dietary dogma of today. Did You find it through the healthy skeptic blog?

That or those that don't agree, but are easily proven wrong, so we can easily demonstrate the poor quality of some of those studies.

By "good papers" do you mean ones that agree with you? :)

I follow @DrEades on Twitter - he's ALWAYS linking to awesome studies on these things. Usually you can save the PDF, or at times I just copy & paste the text with source into Word and save in my Primal folder.

My favorite paper is what got me started on the paleo diet to begin with: Origins and evolution of the Western diet: health implications for the 21st century by Loren Cordain et al Am J Clin Nutr 2005

it can be found free here

All great suggestions above.

The one that I always point people to who are just new to the lifestyle change is the classic New York Times article by Gary Tuabes called What If It's All Been A Big Fat Lie? You can access that here:

http://www.nytimes.com/2002/07/07/magazine/what-if-it-s-all-been-a-big-fat-lie.html

This article preceded Taubes' excellent book Good Calories Bad Calories. (Incidentally, Taubes has a new book coming out on December 28, 2010 called Why We Get Fat And What To Do About It. I heard him interviewed by Jimmy Moore and it's being touted as a less scientific version of GCBC, which, if you've read it, you know to be very heavy on the science.)

I also found this online one day. It's a sort of summarized version of Good Calories Bad Calories and it is quite good and detailed if one is looking for info on a specific topic:

http://higher-thought.net/complete-notes-to-good-calories-bad-calories/

Chris Kresser over at The Healthy Skeptic has compiled a resource list of all his favorite books, blogs, recipe sites and other references for those interested in a paleo-type diet and lifestyle. That can be accessed here:

http://thehealthyskeptic.org/resources

I also liked Loren Cordain's paper The Nutritional Characteristics of a Contemporary Diet Based Upon Paleolithic Food Groups from 2002:
