Am I understanding this correctly? All paleo foods are a subset of all primal foods, and all primal foods are a subset of all WAPF foods? If yes, where does white rice fit? And, I guess all 3 of these are examples of ancestral diets? (more)

The burden of proof as to efficacy lies with the purveyor of any new technology or methodology. Bad science and lousy medicine to assume validity barring contrary evidence.
