Mumuro Above all, the data must speak for itself without the intervening prejudice introduced by charismatic personalities, faulty human judgment and preconceived biases. In evaluating the effect of high protein diets upon bone mineral health, cordakn is therefore crucial to measure both urinary calcium excretion and intestinal absorption of calcium. Campbell II, a physician. This is a serious error, and campbel that makes major mistakes quite possible, even likely. The human requirement for vitamin B12 has been in place for campbekl before we uncovered what was already there.

Heard of T. Colin Campbell? He wrote a book called the China Study about how eating meat is bad for you. We sponsored a debate between Campbell and Loren Cordain a few years ago. I have much respect for the body of work Campbell has generated, but he put minimal effort into the project…I think it simply reflected a pay-day for him. His arguements were weak, he was totally outclassed and thus resorted to what many debators do when faced with immenent defeat: He went for personal attacks on Cordain, addressed none of the core issues and relegated the debate to the realm of metaphysics.
I tackled this in a post at the NorCal site. If someone wants to deconstruct the paleo concept, there are ample opportuniteis to do so from the material in that post…but when we start talking facts, predictive value of theories etc.
The notions that: 1-Vegetarianism is the best way for humans to eat. They are fantasies. We do not. In fact, we only need ONE 1 example of a conflicting finding to completely discredit the hypothesis.
If you are going to attack the merrits of a paleo nutritional approach then you need to attack the underpinnings of modern biology, genetics, and biochemistry. Good luck with that. Introduction Although humanity has been interested in diet and health for thousands of years, the organized, scientific study of nutrition has a relatively recent past.
Nutritional science is not only a newly established discipline, but it is also a highly fractionated, contentious field with constantly changing viewpoints on both major and minor issues that impact public health. These kinds of complete turnabouts and divergence of opinion regarding diet and health are commonplace in the scientific, governmental and medical communities.
The official U. Surprisingly, the personnel makeup of both scientific advisory boards is almost identical. At least 30 million Americans have followed Dr. Atkins advice to eat more fat and meat to lose weight 9. In utter contrast, Dean Ornish tells us fat and meat cause cancer, heart disease and obesity, and that we would all would be a lot healthier if we were strict vegetarians How in the world can anyone make any sense out of this apparent disarray of conflicting facts, opinions and ideas?
In mature and well-developed scientific disciplines there are universal paradigms that guide scientists to fruitful end points as they design their experiments and hypotheses. These central concepts are not theories for each discipline, but rather are indisputable facts that serve as orientation points for all other inquiry within each discipline. Scientists do not know everything about the nature of the universe, but it is absolutely unquestionable that it has been and is expanding.
This central knowledge then serves as a guiding template that allows scientists to make much more accurate and informed hypotheses about factors yet to be discovered. The study of human nutrition remains an immature science because it lacks a universally acknowledged unifying paradigm Without an overarching and guiding template, it is not surprising that there is such seeming chaos, disagreement and confusion in the discipline.
Indeed, nothing in nutrition seems to make sense because most nutritionists have little or no formal training in evolutionary theory, much less human evolution. Nutritionists face the same problem as anyone who is not using an evolutionary model to evaluate biology: fragmented information and no coherent way to interpret the data.
All human nutritional requirements like those of all living organisms are ultimately genetically determined. By carefully examining the ancient environment under which our genome arose, it is possible to gain insight into our present day nutritional requirements and the range of foods and diets to which we are genetically adapted via natural selection This insight can then be employed as a template to organize and make sense out of experimental and epidemiological studies of human biology and nutrition Wolf has transformed the lives of tens of thousands of people around the world via his top ranked iTunes podcast and wildly popular seminar series.

Colin Campbell Loren Cordain Introduction Protein plays a litany of roles in living systems: structural elements, peptide hormones, cell recognition, antibodies… the list is staggering and continues to grow as our understanding of biology expands. What, however, is the role of dietary protein in health and disease in humans? Is the source, type and quantity intimately and directly tied to optimal physical development and continued wellbeing? Is it causative or preventative of disease? How do we know, and how can we know?
