The Toxins Lurking in Our Food

When most people think about a Paleo Diet, they think a healthy diet, rich in whole foods, sans dairy and grains. But one important and sometimes overlooked aspect is the low toxin burden.

Multiple Sclerosis Stymied with The Paleo Diet

Multiple Sclerosis Stymied with The Paleo Diet

Dr. Cordain, I went Paleo after watching Dr. Cordain’s lectures on Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in the summer of 2012.
