I'm interested in what type of genetic selection may have occurred among my very distant North Western European ancestors because of their available diet staples. For example, Scandinavians are more lactose-tolerant because they first milked... (more)
Hi everyone, I'm in my first week of Paleo and loving it so far. I have seen references on this site to people doing some sort of research into their ancestry to determine additonal things about what they may need nutritionally. Can someone give... (more)
I have been eating a mostly paleo diet for over a year now, but lately I've been thinking more and more about evolution, and whether we should evolve the idea of paleo to move past the paleolithic era and into the modern era. Humans have been... (more)
20 generations are nothing on an evolutionary timescale. How sure are you that all of your 1048576 potential ancestors ate only rice and beans? You'd be surprised how many of them didn't.
My dad was Polish. Mom was Uruguayan and her parents were Hungarian. Assuming that my grandparents (on both sides) were healthier than people in my generation, it seems that I'd be better off eating eastern European fare and not so much of the... (more)
Hey! Would a "Paleo" diet be better suited to an individual if he/she took into account where their people came from? Example: I am Oglala Lakota, n traditionally my people hunted meat n gathered wild turnips and chokecherries in season. I can... (more)
Quick question - is anyone else going to this? http://ancestryfoundation.org/ Just saw the agenda and speakers on Richard Nikoley's latest "Free the Animal" post and had to book there and then! I've never even been to America before... (more)
Someone sent me a link to this https://www.23andme.com/ancestry/origins/ -- looks interesting. Map your global origins with the most complete coverage of your DNA. 23andMe Ancestry Edition ($399) also includes: Your Relative... (more)
I don't know about the human ones, but the ones for dogs are notoriously unreliable. One lady had a champion purebred pitbull but its DNA test came back as being mostly border collie! LOL!
Possible Duplicate: Should we eat according to our ancestry? What should be considered the cut-off point to fine-tune food choices considering personal ancestry? 500 years ago? 10,000 years ago? Seems to me 90% of my menu would be... (more)
I know I'm not the first person to think of this, but looking over the archives here I don't see any mention of paleo people doing one of those genetic tests to discover their haplogroup in the context of personal paleo research. I'm having mine... (more)
