Paleolithic diet doesn't weigh up › Dr Karl's Great Moments In Science (ABC Science)

Paleolithic diet doesn't weigh up › Dr Karl's Great Moments In Science (ABC Science) | Healthy Lifestyle News | Scoop.it
David Holloway's insight:

add your insight...

There are many many diets available today to those of us wishing to lose some extra weight. One current favourite is the so-called 'Palaeolithic diet'.

In a nutshell, it claims that our Palaeolithic ancestors lived in wondrous harmony with their environment, which gave them exactly what they needed to live a long and happy lifestyle.

And furthermore, it claims that the period of 12,000 years-or-so since we invented agriculture is too short for our bodies to have evolved to cope with the new foods that agriculture has given us.

Diet and saturated fat: what to believe? - Health & Wellbeing

Diet and saturated fat: what to believe? - Health & Wellbeing | Healthy Lifestyle News | Scoop.it
David Holloway's insight:

add your insight...

For decades, doctors have told us saturated fat raises cholesterol which leads to heart disease. For almost as long, some sections of the community – including some medical professionals – have argued that cholesterol is not the villain it's made out to be when it comes to your heart.

The debate reached fever pitch recently after the publication of an editorial in the British Medical Journal, which stated the advice to reduce cholesterol has in fact increased our risk of heart disease.

This was followed by a program on ABC TV's Catalyst examining whether the role of cholesterol in heart disease is one of 'the biggest myths in medical history'.
