This may sound like a stupid question, and maybe it is, but this is one of the most common remarks I get when talking about eating enough fat: "Isn't that really bad for your liver?" I'm a laymen, but I know a bit about the effects of neolithic... (more)

The caveat is that the orthodontist recommends I remove my wisdom teeth in hopes that it would fix my open bite. Right now, only the last set of wisdom teeth touch when I bite down. It wasn't always this way. I wore an improperly fitted... (more)

Overcoming what Conventional Wisdom has taught us may take a while to sink in, but it obviously works. What is your favorite shattered myth of CW that you have challenged and defeated?

To My Palaeo and/or Low-Carb Friends, My name is Sarah and I need your help! Let me tell you a little about me; I turned LC about 8 years ago because I was morbidly obese (24 stone/336lb to begin with then, thanks to the NHS, I ended up at 30... (more)

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... (more)

Great topic, thanks! Here are a few: If you want to be slim, pass on the sweets and starches. Go to bed before ten o'clock. Go outside every day. Do your own chores. Eating at home is nicer than going out. Don't go to the grocer when you... (more)

It may help to understand what exactly the recommended intakes for vitamins actually mean. Due to normal variability the level of a vitamin needed in a population usually follows a normal distribution or bell curve. The recommended intakes are... (more)

Feel free to add to these categories - they are in no particular order! Would you say that 1 or more, or any combo of the following characterize the conventional wisdom crowd (in no particular order): 1) ignorant/unaware - confused and/or... (more)

My limited understanding of human anatomy is that we have wisdom teeth and an appendix, which enabled us to cope with eating and digesting a diet which included a much higher intake of roughage, fibre (plants and tree bark) than Paleo followers... (more)
