Processed, Cured and Smoked Meats: Definitely Not Paleo!

As more and more people adopt the Paleo Diet, controversy has arisen as to which dietary elements actually comprise a contemporary “Paleo Diet”.  Or more precisely, which current foods, food groups or food additives should be included or excluded in modern day diets as we try to emulate the nutritional characteristics of our pre-agricultural ancestors?   A number of popular-day and charismatic bloggers suggest that processed meats such as bacon and other cured, processed and smoked meats should be part of contemporary Paleo Diets on a daily basis (1-3).   Surprisingly, one of the contested elements that charismatic bloggers advocate

June is the official start of summer which hopefully means warm weather, time at the beach, cottage or park, and getting together with the family around the BBQ.

We hope you enjoy, and as always, thanks for

Navigating the Farmer’s Market / Top Finds for June

What did you gather today at your local market? Was it what you had planned? Contrary to what one might think, heading to the farmer’s market without a list can actually be quite fun and liberating. Why? Because it allows you the opportunity to purchase only what is in season where you live and then get your creative juices flowing, based on what you’ve found, once you’re back in the comfort of your own kitchen (or backyard fire pit!). And with summer at our doorstep, even those who live in areas without abundant year-round produce, can turn to the very

The Paleo Diet May Digest – Published After Twenty Years

 Welcome readers to the Paleo Diet’s May digest! This month we cover a variety of topics from getting ready for the summer beach season, to recent research showing why eggs might actually be a good way to start your day; despite the bad press they’ve received. But most important in May was the posting of a never-before-published book chapter by Binger Jansson, PhD, a respected colleague of Dr Cordain’s. Jannson’s life work was on salt and cancer. And even back in 1997 when he wrote his book, the scientific evidence was painting a clear picture. We’re excited that Jansson’s colleagues

A Rare, and Never Before Published Book Chapter Concerning Salt and Cancer

When I was in the middle of my academic career during the mid to late 1990’s (I retired from Colorado State University in December 2013,) I had the great pleasure of corresponding with Birger Jansson, Ph.D. at the University of Texas, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. Dr. Jansson was a Professor in the Department of Biomathematics at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and worked as a biomathematician for the National Large Bowel Cancer Project (NLBCP) between 1973 and 1983 when President Nixon launched his war against cancer in the early 1970s. Birger was known internationally for his brilliant
