Another Misguided Attack on Paleo in Australia

Who'll get type 2 diabetes?

Who’ll get type 2 diabetes?

Paleo diets do not help people with type 2 diabetes, according to Australian news:

All this is based on the opinions of the infamous researcher Sof Andrikopoulos. Yes, the same one who “proved” Paleo diets cause diabetes and obesity in humans, by feeding mice sugar and canola oil.

So how can you prove that humans are harmed by Paleo, by feeding mice something that is not Paleo? Beats me. You’ll have to ask Andrikopoulos, because it makes zero sense to me.

Anyway, now Andrikopoulos is again claiming Paleo is bad, as it does not have enough long-term evidence for a positive effect in diabetes type 2. And obviously more scientific backing would be great. But conventional treatment does not just lack the same evidence, what evidence there is shows it works really badly, and the track record is abysmal.

I’ll leave the details to Professor Grant Schofield:

SciBlogs: Anti-paleo diet attacks miss the point

To summarise: Paleo may offer no obvious benefits beyond other low-carb diets in diabetes type 2. But that’s still very good. The real problem is something else:

[C]ommercial food companies promoting highly processed food, the health system that is dominated by big pharma, and [focuses on] sickness not health…

Surely we have bigger fish to fry?

Crohn’s Disease Successfully Treated With the Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet

Crohn’s disease is a relatively common inflammatory disease of the intestines. It’s usually a lifelong disease of unknown cause, and it’s mainly treated by drugs that suppress the immune system, like cortisone. These drugs do not treat the cause of the disease, and thus they can’t cure it.

It’s likely that the cause of the disease is something in the environment, and being a disease of the intestines it would make a lot of sense if the cause was something in our food.

I’ve heard many cases where people started a strict low-carb diet, or a Paleo diet, and vastly improved the symptoms of their Crohn’s disease or, even more commonly, the similar disease ulcerative colitis.

Another case

A new case report was just published, about a 14-years-old boy with severe Crohn’s disease. Conventional drug therapy was not very successful. Together with his parents he decided to try a paleolithic ketogenic diet that mainly consisted of “animal fat, meat, offal and eggs”. Continue Reading →

Why the Paleo Movement Is Dying

paleo

Check out this new Instagram post from Paleo f(x) – the largest Paleo conference.

Makes perfect sense right? Because we all know that cavemen used to drink artificially sweetened soda in the summer, while eating lollipops. So why not sell it?

It’s a perfect illustration of the decline of the Paleo movement. Once, many years ago, it was about a powerful revolution, about massively improving people’s health. Now it’s about selling chocolate bars. Or mayo. Or even soda.

Here’s what’s been happening to Google searches of “paleo” in the last few years:

Going down. Fast.

It’s sad, because getting back to an evolutionarily normal lifestyle is super important for the future health of humanity. But unfortunately “Paleo” is now turning into a joke, and the people at the head of the movement have only themselves to blame.

Maybe it can still be saved, but that would require some drastic action I believe. What do you think?
