I'm not about to abandon PaleoHacks. I've learned much and benefited greatly from this community. The number of active members who truly understand the science of the body and diet is refreshing and stimulating. However, sometimes when my... (more)
My gramma (bless her) used to have me drip hyrdogen peroxide in my ears and let it fizz away at the first sign of a cold. It always seemed to do the trick. I have begun doing this again recently but am plagued by the thought that it could be a... (more)
I am student of the paleo science and lifestyle and read pretty much everything I come across. When people begun to harvest they become shorter, died sooner and so on. True! But once again, cause and correlation... Could it be that people become... (more)
My question is this: Based on scientific research and DIY biohackers are we reaching a upgraded paleo diet? A diet where we take the evolutionary biology of how we as humans process nutrition and tweak that to a superhuman advantage? Science is... (more)
So this interview by Sean Croxton of Dr Thomas O'Bryan was very interesting and I would love to believe everything he says. So I'm looking for research that backs up these claims: Autoimmunity needs this trilogy to develop: Genetic... (more)
I heard Morgan Freeman is much better, especially playing the Lydian mode.
Science cannot address the issue of whether God exists or not, NOR does it try. It is not a testable hypothesis.For science to address something it MUST be a scientific hypothesis. Trying to "disprove' God is not a scientific hypothesis . SHYSTERS... (more)

What are valid criticisms of the paleo diet? Scientific, economic, ethical... the gamut. And by paleo I mean the umbrella term that includes Weston A Price, Primal, Perfect Health Diet, GAPS etc etc.
Probably a long-shot here, but has anyone used or know about a Rapid Visco Analyzer (RVA)? I have a few questions, but the most basic is are there certain values that correlate to certain types of foods? For example a high peak viscosity would... (more)
I am reading this book, having seen it touted in Underground Wellness. It is well-researched and endorsed by many key researchers. The only Q I have so far is the focus on zero and low-fat foods. Why? Can anyone make sense of this?

This is an exact duplicate of this question, asked and answered in great detail one month ago: http://paleohacks.com/questions/110169/new-study-effects-of-n6-pufas-compared-with-sfas Someone should close this as an exact duplicate. (I can't, as... (more)
I caught this post by Michael Ruhlman today: http://ruhlman.com/2012/04/food-facism/ He seems to try to make a distinction between those with allergies versus intolerances, and those who keep their diets to themselves versus those who... (more)

I was reading my blog feed this morning, and this image came across from one the atheist / skeptic blogs I follow: Now, I definitely feel there's a lot of pseudoscience out there (sadly, sometimes espoused here on PH). When I read the right... (more)
Just a quick question... I think the years I spent suffering every Gluten related issue helped "sink the Paleo hook deeper" than if I'd never been ignored, humiliated, and chastised by those MDs practicing CW. However, I am also fascinated by the... (more)
I have some scientist friends complaining about how "anecdotal" all this paleo stuff is. I'm looking for the Top 5 most persuasive, well researched papers out there. I'm sick of nit picking with these guys over email. I just want to go "blam"... (more)
I accept the wisdom that once you're on a paleo-esque diet and off of superstimulus like sugar, food cravings are something to be taken seriously (I could really go for some thymus right now), but does anyone have a scientific or evidence based... (more)
The more science, the better. Apparently, he saw on tv we ate no meat. I asked him how that is possible, if there's only 30kcal in every 100g of herbs/vegetables. He said that if cows can do that, we can. It turned into an endless discussion, and... (more)
Dissect a cow and human cadaver on the living room floor, to demonstrate the extensive differences in colon sizes and organ structures (such as the rumen). Form follows function. Ok, so that still might not convince him - but it would be funny to... (more)

I'm wondering what the best science books on "paleo" are. I liked Paleo Solution but wished it went into much more detail about the science of why grain is bad, soy is bad, and why meat is good.
I thought Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas gave awesome explanations on all of that... I wouldn't really consider it "science heavy," but the scientific information in it is still really valuable.
Does anyone know of any good books or resources that go a little more in depth with the science and biochem aspects of why the paleo diet works? I need to feed my inner dorkness. Please let me know. Thanks!
