The Paleo Diet Response to Media on Misleading Mice Study Claims

March 16th, 2016 Dear Ms. Ellis, Thank you for responding to our letter. An open dialogue and discussion is always appreciated. While we respect that the author may have been expressing the opinions of the study’s author we do not feel that was made at all clear in the article. The article starts with a discussion of the Paleo diet without any attribution to the authors. More egregiously, the caption below the picture at the top of the article reads “Mice on a Paleo diet gained 15% of their body weight in less than 2 months”. Nowhere does it state that was

Response to Media on Recent Mouse Study

Two weeks ago, media outlets around the world published articles strongly questioning the Paleo Diet based on a single high-fat study on mice. We always enjoy seeing articles about the diet, whether it’s a testimonial, a new discovery, or even criticisms about the science because it’s only through scientific debate that we arrive at better answers. But we draw our line at unfounded claims and poor research. This week thepaleodiet.com contacted many of these media outlets asking for a correction to their unfounded claims. A sample of our letter (sent to Medical News Today) is published below: I am writing

Hot Topic: Dr. Cordain and Dr. Turchin Debate Fire’s Impact on Our Ancestors’ Diet

In August of 2014, Dr. Peter Turchin of Cliodynamica published a blog post titled “Paleo Diet and Fire”. In it, he discusses Richard Wrangham’s book Catching Fire: How Cooking Makes Us Human. The article explores Richard Wrangham’s theory that the significant jump in the cranial capacity of Homo erectus and Homo sapiens was fueled by fire; specifically, the ability to cook underground roots and tubers. A student of Dr. Cordain’s read the post and brought it to Dr. Cordain’s attention. Dr. Cordain disagreed with Wrangham’s hypothesis and reached out to Dr. Turchin to discuss the theory. Dr. Cordain argued that
