An Update on Dr. Douglas London’s Next Expedition to the Amazon


Juan Carlos with the Waorani

In a recent interview, we spoke with Douglas London, Ph.D. about the remarkable research he’s conducted on one of the last remaining indigenous hunter-gatherer societies on earth—the Kawymeno, a subgroup of the Waorani, who live in the jungles of Ecuador.

What London discovered during his visits from 2009 to 2011 has revolutionized our understanding of the true hunter-gatherer diet and its remarkable effects on human health.

London is planning his next extended stay to continue his research of the Waorani’s diet and overall health. He was kind enough to send us this recent photo of his research assistant, Juan Carlos, who spent January 2020 visiting other Waorani villages in hopes of finding others interested in being part of London’s research.

We’ll continue to post updates on Dr. London’s current expedition. And as always, this type of research needs funding. If you are interested in connecting with Dr. London to contribute to his research, please contact us at expert@thepaleodiet.com and we’ll help you connect with him (email access isn’t a luxury he has often in the Amazon.)
