My wife Ana Hurtado and I have been eating a paleodiet (by accident because of fieldwork) for more than 30 years, because we grew accustomed to that diet (long before the fad). Meats, and unprocessed plant foods are a simple generalized ancestral diet and appear to produce better health than the current standard modern diet. As anyone who knows us can affirm, Hurtado and I are a lot leaner and fitter than most Americans in our age cohort (near 60). Why?
"Kim Hill, Professor of Anthropology from ASU, whose work on the Hiwi was so misrepresented in the Scientific American article he took the time to write the following comment," quoted by Robb Wolf: Science says the Paleo diet is bunk, right? Think again.
