Trying to convince my father who has cancer that the paleo diet is the way to eat. Can anyone suggest a concise article that outlines the principles and benefits?

And I just got an email saying that tea made from lemon grass is helpful at killing cancer cells (but not other cells). It may be worth a try- don't think it can hurt.

Mark Sissons page on 'Primal Blueprint 101' is good for starters: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/

Paleoforlife has a good resources page: http://www.paleoforlife.org/resources.php

Richard from Free The Animal has a good introductory page: http://freetheanimal.com/ancestral-life-way

Hope this helps your dad!

At the risk of being self-promotional, I wrote a "brief" 5,000 word essay covering all of the basics for people new to the paleo diet. It comes out to about 7 pages.

"Concise Paleo Diet" http://naturallyengineered.com/blog/concise-paleo-diet/

It is also available as a free downloadable PDF.

This may not be the most 'consise' article, but it's the article that changed my life.

Too bad about your father. This is a bit longer but pretty good.

http://whole9life.com/2010/05/whole-30-v2/

I think most 'intro' articles will focus on what and how. I don't think too many will make the claim that a paleo diet can cure cancer, although there are probably some other articles (like the ones on free the animal) say the typical grain/starch/sugar diet feeds cancer.

So maybe you need a two pronged approach, first a few articles that establish the reason for going paleo, then 1-2 of these that say how to do it.
