Paleo in all but name?

http://articles.latimes.com/2010/dec/20/health/la-he-carbs-20101220 "As nutrition scientists try to find the ideal for the future, others look to history and evolution for answers. One way to put our diet in perspective is to imagine the face of a clock with 24 hours on it. Each hour represents 100,000 years that humans have been on the Earth.

On this clock, the advent of agriculture and refined grains would have appeared at about 11:54 p.m. (23 hours and 54 minutes into the day). Before that, humans were hunters and gatherers, eating animals and plants off the land. Agriculture allowed for the mass production of crops such as wheat and corn, and refineries transformed whole grains into refined flour and created processed sugar.

Some, like Phinney, would argue that we haven't evolved to adapt to a diet of refined foods and mass agriculture ??? and that maybe we shouldn't try."

This article is from December 2010. They don't say "Paleo" however, the above quote is from page 4....so, where are all these Doctors today and why is no one listening or doing anything to change the situation?

Agreed. There is an overproduction of wheat and corn to get rid of - so recommend 'heart healthy whole grains', there's a massive 'diet' industry to keep going, there's drug companies paying for the research. Telling people to eat nothing but unadulterated food from their local farmer and their own garden makes profit for pretty much no-one - therefore it's not going to happen. Cynical I know - sorry.

I suspect most doctors don't get the nutritional advice they dispense to patients from newspapers and blogs.

We need more peer reviewed studies and articles written and published to more professional journals. I guess. Hopefully then more doctors might start getting the hint?

But who knows, those same doctors might also watch the evening news where the talking heads regurgitate the same old stuff about conventional wisdom.

It'll take a lot for the situation to change.

I bet we could get Ron Paul on board with Paleo.

Follow the money, always follow the money. 99% of scientists and researchers are grant whores and as most grant money comes from the gov't, most of the grant money goes towards research that will affirm the status quo, or at least will affirm the things the govt is pushing, like the food pyramid, saturated fat causes heart disease, etc. And actually, they have been pushing this agenda for so long, there could be some serious repercussions if they came out and said, "you know that low fat stuff we've been saying since the 60's, well thats killing you."
