This guy promoting a stoneage diet. Does anyone heard of him and know him? Or is he just marketing king selling some bread with butter and jam. for some bucks on the internet? :)

If he is a good one he probalby has some published articles on the internet or what are you thinking?

David Blyweiss, M.D.

Dr. Blyweiss began his medical career as a clinical pharmacist in South Florida prior to earning his medical degree from St. George???s University School of Medicine in 1982.

This dual background allowed him to both appreciate the relevance of conventional pharmaceutical/surgical based treatments in acute medical conditions, but also to recognize where these approaches fell short in treating the majority of patients who suffered from the chronic degenerative diseases of ???western civilization origin.???

Dr. Blyweiss was one of the initial researchers doing the early work on chlorhexidine (Phisohex) while earning his first post graduate degree at Temple University School of Pharmacy. During medical school he worked with the WHO (World Health Organization) in vaccinating children in the islands of the Carribbean. He has traveled much of the world, most recently to Belize, Central America, Gabon, Africa, and Zagreb, Croatia working closely with teams of specialists to identify new plant life and natural products for possible human benefit as well as researchers and their stem cell transplantation teams. He has consulted for and created state-of-the-art nutritional supplements for multiple nutritional companies since 1999. He is currently in private practice in South Florida where he resides with his family.

He's got a very fat looking face for a guy selling a diet that will make you "trim and sexy". Just sayin'. (Physician, heal thyself!) I'd rather take the advice of those that walk the walk, such as KGH.

Web of Science, two articles. One editorial. One article on stem cells that lists him as a co-author, but he's not attributed in the text itself. It appears he's just an MD that jumped on the "paleo" bandwagon. I'm not digging through the freebies to find the paywall on his site. I'm sure it's there though!

Nothing in the referenced biography makes me think he's any more knowledgeable about evolutionary biology or nutrition than the average PH'er. He's a research pharmacist and medical doctor. I'll Web of Science him when I get to work later...

The words are all right, but all that sign-up stuff... sounds like it eventually turns into something commercial. there are so many other Paleo gurus out there to check on and get info from. I'd give this one a pass... until I hear further news.

As I was reading his site, my wife came into the room and asked me why I was shaking my head with a confused look on my face.
