it was ok
bookshelves: health-medicine this in order to understand what some of my patients are following.....and found yet another biased food fad based on obsessivly and blindly marching down a path marked out by dogma and cherry-picking the literature.
It does deserve a couple of stars in that a portion of it is sensible and clearly better than the current North American highly processed diet of frankenfoods.....but the so-called genetic basis for us today still needing a grain and dairy free diet is just a theory. Plus it irks me that Dr Cordain hasn't heard of (or conveniently ignores) punctuated equilibrium.
