I see a lot of papers flying aroung when browsing around the Paleo circles, but my bookmarking strategy is not sophisticated enough to keep track of all of them.
Is there anybody with a list of good papers on subjects like saturated fat, cholesterol, low carb, omega-3/omega-6, lectins, ...
I would be nice to have it handy for easy rebuttal of skeptics.
I follow @DrEades on Twitter - he's ALWAYS linking to awesome studies on these things. Usually you can save the PDF, or at times I just copy & paste the text with source into Word and save in my Primal folder.
My favorite paper is what got me started on the paleo diet to begin with: Origins and evolution of the Western diet: health implications for the 21st century by Loren Cordain et al Am J Clin Nutr 2005
it can be found free here
Here's a good one that's in my head because it's hot off the presses: http://www.nutritionjrnl.com/article/PIIS0899900710002893/fulltext
Enig's/Fallon's Oiling of America paper is excellent:
All great suggestions above.
The one that I always point people to who are just new to the lifestyle change is the classic New York Times article by Gary Tuabes called What If It's All Been A Big Fat Lie? You can access that here:
This article preceded Taubes' excellent book Good Calories Bad Calories. (Incidentally, Taubes has a new book coming out on December 28, 2010 called Why We Get Fat And What To Do About It. I heard him interviewed by Jimmy Moore and it's being touted as a less scientific version of GCBC, which, if you've read it, you know to be very heavy on the science.)
I also found this online one day. It's a sort of summarized version of Good Calories Bad Calories and it is quite good and detailed if one is looking for info on a specific topic:
Chris Kresser over at The Healthy Skeptic has compiled a resource list of all his favorite books, blogs, recipe sites and other references for those interested in a paleo-type diet and lifestyle. That can be accessed here:
I also liked Loren Cordain's paper The Nutritional Characteristics of a Contemporary Diet Based Upon Paleolithic Food Groups from 2002:
