Most longevity data is not adjusted for: non obesity, lifestyle, diet, and a whole host of other factors. What, then, are the most likely causes of death for a happy, vital Paleo-lifestyle human being, and life expectancy? Degenerative diseases... (more)

Yeah, in that guardian article on causes of death, there's 3 big ones: heart disease, cancer, circulatory, and respiratory. We know/suspect that high sugar intake can effect some cancers by feeding them, and can cause heart disease through... (more)

I understand that hunter gatherers don't have any modern medical care and probably die from common infections and broken bones, but considering the fact that they live in natural less polluted environments, eat nutritious foods, get plenty of... (more)

Living the paleo life will hopefully put my on track for a long healthy life, which got me thinking - taking everything into account... what could that realistically be? Starting with genetics: looking at my grandparents. One grandmother died aged... (more)

I think quality of life is much more important than shear number of years lived. By eating a clean paleo diet it allows us to make better use of each day due to lack of blood sugar swings and overall better moods. A person who lives a good life,... (more)

I made a completely anonymous survey (with results instantly visible), it's very simple with 5 questions. Nothing like the in depth one done earlier this year. The questions are mainly to satisfy my own curiosity, of things I have been thinking... (more)

I see this argument coming back time and time again, but it's still one I have trouble with sometimes. It seems to be somewhat the last excuse people use to judge that the Paleo diet can't be this good. My general answer is that age of death is a... (more)

Quite often in my reading, I come across a thought that goes something like this (I'm paraphrasing): "Though early man had a life-span much shorter than ours, somewhere around 30 years on average, he suffered none of our modern debilitating... (more)

That 30 year average life span for Paleo men probably includes the number of relatively young men who died in war, or by murder. As many as one in four Paleo men died in war or by murder - often in their late teens or early twenties. The murders... (more)

Hey all -- I'm curious to know if there have been any studies that show a greater life expectancy for those eating paleo today. Anyone find anything? Google searches on the subject reveal speculation about how long our ancestors lived and I'm... (more)

What is everyone's opinion on this study stating that vegetarians live longer? http://healthland.time.com/2013/06/04/vegetarians-may-live-longer/?hpt=hp_t3 (more)

I like Colpo alot but he is dead wrong. I have no idea what data he is sourcing because over all endurance athletes die a lot earlier. Take a look at this study that has all the professional sports teams i work with really re evaluating what... (more)
