Hi folks: I am interested in getting feedback re. the working definition/premise I have posted below. I won't go into details as to why I am trying to refine this, let's just say I am not satisfied with what has been posited thus far. Of note, is that this proposed premise purposely does NOT list any specific behaviors (dos, don'ts, etc)
Go easy on me. ;-) Thanks.
The Paleo Premise
1-Human genetics have scarcely changed since the dawn of agriculture at end of the Paleolithic era. Humans are strongly evolutionarily-adapted to the environment(s) of the late Paleolithic period.
2-Most premature deaths in modern society are likely the end-result of chronic physiologic (cellular) stress, due to a mismatch between humans??? ???ancient??? cellular blueprint (DNA) and the ultra-modern environments we live in.
3-Therefore, by safely attempting to create a cellular environment (via our intentional choices re. diet, physical activity, social engagement, etc.) that mimics a late-Paleolithic cellular environment, our cells should function more effectively/efficiently, resulting in improved health and longevity.
