I want to share a google ramble. In the end I promise we'll return to the beginning!
Three years ago I enjoyed the bliss of knowing there had been no cases of cancer in my blood line. This month I now know of three. I hit paleohacks and my trusted fact-based paleo-style blogs for insight.
Result: cancer gets you whenever, and no amount of caution about inflammation is sure to prevent it.
But I'm never satisfied, so I googled on and found the following post from 2006 on a low-carb website. It's from a guy who went full carnivore for 47 years and reckoned "paleodiets" are nonsense. His advice: no carbs, no veg - they're not just junkfood but poison. The post is very well written, and he gave a link to his obscure website: http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=287013
If you can judge someone from their writing, then this guy was precise and aware. But I wanted to know more, and the best clue I could find was "soundman for the grateful dead". Google ... click whirrrrr ... and it must be the LSD millionaire of the 1960s, Owsley Stanley - the biog even has a section on his ideas about diet: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Owsley_Stanley#Diet_and_health
Stanley developed cancer in 2004, which predates his 2006 post. Cause of death? Car crash in Aus in 2011. Who knew?
End of ramble. Thanks for following.
