UCTVS: Principels of a healthy diet

UCTv:How do we know what to eat?

figure some people here may be interested, or have something to say about this.

basically a updated mainstream view of diet, goes through how the us governments recommendations have changed and gets into some of the why. aswell as some of their current thoughts on healthy diets, while they are still not in line with paleo(duh) the current view is far closer to paleo than "get bread and milk, and dont eat any meat"

one of the things i was curious about was that he mentions that the body doesnt really need salt, kind of in the same way we dont 'need' carbs. but he mentioned that people can live on as little as 5mg a day, which was pretty shocking to me as my view was that salt was quite important, and many in paleo even consider the us recommendation of 2,000mg a day as on the low side.

also they still seem to be against red meats(for the most part) but if there is only correlation and no mechanism why would they stick with that viewpoint?(they did mention the need for more and better research)

sorry dont think there is a detailed summary, was just posted a few days ago. not really that many views yet@youtube.

was just a history of the USAs diet recommendations along with their current thinking. nothing really new or groundbreaking, just a neat little novelty piece giving an alternative perspective. think there might be a few more talks on diets coming up, but idk.

I've tried to find a summary (link if you have one please) of this as I didn't feel like watching the entire presentation. Subject is of interest but time, I need more time for it all. The salt thing is odd when compared to the bulk of info about sodium needs for the body.
