Dear PaleoDiet.com editorial board,
Many thanks for your follow-up email regarding the following article: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/306816.php
I can confirm we have amended the caption to reflect that the researchers report that the mice on the “Paleo” diet gained 15% of their body weight, and we have also amended the article text to state that the report claims that the mice gained this weight after 8 weeks on the said diet.
Additionally, we have contacted the study authors asking them to clarify the diet the mice were fed, and whether this can be classed as a Paleo diet. Please note that the researchers are based in Australia, so it may take time for them to respond.
We will contact you once they have replied and will review the article further based on their response.
At Medical News Today, we pride ourselves in accurate reporting, so we greatly appreciate your comments and take them very seriously.
