Chris Kresser has recently been promoting the consumption of Kefir and dairy. A brief check of Chris’s scientific publication record on PubMed for Paleo Diets, or any other topic for that matter, comes up with absolutely zilch, zero, nothing! No publications whatsoever.
Dr. Cordain, About 20 years ago I also read “Are you Confused?” as part of my interest in nutrition health and sports. Today I have a MSc in Nutritional Science and work as a sports dietitian in River Plata soccer club in Argentina. I ended up with your book after delving into my hobby: physical […]
Each year, October 31st seems to mark the start of the junk food season. Most of us have fun childhood memories of dressing up in costume, attending parties, and spending hours Trick-or-Treating in our neighborhoods. Returning home with a bag full of candy and sugary snacks meant an evening spent sampling the hard, soft, or […]
Hello Dr. Cordain and Team, I am a passionate Paleo follower and advocate this healthy way of eating to anyone who will listen. My question is in regards to my children aged 2 and a half and 3 and a half. Are there any special considerations that need to be made for small children? My […]
Following The Paleo Diet in college when the meal plan doesn’t include many Paleo-friendly options is tough. Fortunately, there are plenty of options to make sure that your healthy eating plan is not compromised by your school’s conventional eating plans.
Dr. Cordain joins Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Iron Chef Cat Cora talk nutrition with Larry King. From addressing the Farm Bill and GMOs to the healthful benefits of eating local, free range and organic foods, to the ramifications of following an animal versus plant-based diet, this is one interview you don’t want to miss.
Dr. Cordain openly reprimands the popular press who incorrectly interpreted the studies published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences by suggesting that numerous species of fossilized hominins, bipedal or upright walking apes, who lived in Africa from 4.1 to 1.4 million years ago, were regular consumers of grass and grass seeds.
We had the pleasure of sitting down with Extreme Health Radio for an informative discussion on what makes The Paleo Diet the practical approach to nutrition. Check out the episode highlights and tune in to the full version below. Follow @ehrshow
Below is a recent Q&A with Dr. Cordain:
Here I go again with the question of the week. I love my job!
What do you think about carnitine found in high levels in red meat ( and in other products- other meats, sports drinks, etc) and its potential association with formation of coronary…
1) From what I gather, you developed the Paleo diet yourself based. How did you come up with the key concept and why?
Dr. Cordain: I didn’t develop this diet, rather together with scientists, anthropologists, and physicians worldwide we uncovered the pre-existing, native human diet to which our species is genetically adapted. Theodosius Dobzhansky, the noted Russian geneticist said, “Nothing in biology makes sense except under the light of evolution”. This quote could be slightly altered to, “Nothing in nutrition makes sense except under the light of evolution”. Hence what I have done together with colleagues from around the world…
