Cordain’s Campbell's (wow, am I tired) final argument, a masterstroke against the Paleo diet argument.
1. Non-genetic changes to the body can take place too. Just because our distant ancestors needed to hunt to survive does not mean we cannot get the proper nutrition and sustenance from a solely plant based diet.
2.A holistic approach to nutrition study makes more sense than a reductionist approach because nutrition is about how foods work together to sustain us, not how each individual nutrient effects each individual aspect of the body.
3. DIET BASED ON INSTINCT DOESN'T OPTIMIZE HEALTH. It optimizes pleasure. Bam.
4. Both Cordain and Campbell have research supporting that milk (casein) has negative health effects, not positive, despite what corporate tells you. Soy ice cream tastes good. So does sorbet.
Read The China Study by T. Collin Campbell. I highly recommend it.
