Here’s but a sampling of links, discussions and posts that have been bandied about the Highbrow Paleo group:
- We looked over Chris Masterjohn’s new paper about the benefits of green tea.
- Carly quotes Dr. Cordain:
“If you are about 75% Paleo compliant, you won’t need any vitamin or mineral supplements (except possibly vitamin D and fish oil). Many new studies suggest that antioxidant supplements may actually increase overall mortality and disease morbidity. I have listed these references in my new book.The vitamin and mineral density of a typical contemporary diet based on Stone Age food groups (748 milligrams of C or 1247 % of the DRI) is quite high.”
What say you?
- We talked over Melissa McEwen’s post over on Huntgatherlove.com regarding the invisible women of Paleo.
- Smelts, you know those little fish you are supposed to eat bones and all. For Elizabeth it was a 50/50 experience. The bones were kinda gross, but she’s got quite a few heads with which she’ll make a nice stock.
- Looks like many HBP peeps like their fish sauce. Winning brand is Red Boat.
- Since the people in our group are very much so interested in taking health and diet into our own hands, we tend to pay attention to “outside of the box” nutrition advice. However, Matthew offers up this blog post to stir some debate over how to stray from mainstream advice while staying out of the “crazy stuff”.
- Dennis shares the secret to identifying what produce is GM just by looking at the PLU number.
- Shit Fruitarians say. We totally need a Shit Paleo Dieters say too.
- Paula Deen, evil temptress or pawn of the food/pharma industry?
- So much talk about the human microbiome. Did you know that “if some twisted genius vaporized all 10 trillion cells in your body — along with the hair, the fingernails, and other tissue they create — it would not leave empty space behind. A body-shaped cloud made of bacteria, viruses, and other former stowaways would hover briefly in the air. The cloud would outline your skin, delineate your lungs, trace your digestive tract. You might be gone for good, but your shadow biosphere would remain.”
- Richard shares his love of cheese and of vitamin k2. Gouda seems to top the list of cheeses with this important nutrient.
- We listened to Dr. Ron Rosedale in this Jimmy Moore podcast as well as Paul Jaminet in this Underground Wellness podcast.
- Paula Deen, Queen of deep-fried cream cheese doughnut burgers with a side of sweet tea, has come down with a case of Type II diabetes! Shocker. As Derrick so eloquently put it, “the more nuanced me should say that the game is rigged by powerful forces, however, when given the information I’ve observed many people choose to remain ignorant instead of making the hard choices to reverse the damage. It’s very disheartening…”
- Whether you think it tastes like spoons or ambrosia, beef heart is a superfood. Get comfy preparing, cooking and eating it!
- There a quite a few very strange things that turn out to be good for your health. Fecal transplants are just SO HOT right now. Also, don’t forget all of those beneficial worms.
