We probably all know advice that our mothers or grandmothers gave us. The kind of advice that we found ennoying. The kind of advice that we gladly dismissed as old wives tales. And often our doctor also said it was nonsense.
But now, since we (paleos) understand the power of our ancestry, some of that advice seems to be correct! Grandma was right after all!
you get acne from sugar
you get bad eyesight from reading a lot
use real butter
skimmed milk has all the good stuff taken away
the best part of the meat is the fat part
Do you have other wisdom from your grandmothers to share?
[EDIT: you can also tell me the wisdom that was wrong and still is wrong and that was correctly labelled as old wives tales]
