Paleolithic diets are MUCH better than the standard diet in America today (with the fact of its complete restriction of grains, legumes, and soy), however Cordain has two major problems in his approach.

Number one, wild animals back then - like today - have significant levels of saturated fats and primitive peoples (as research has shown time and time again) prioritise on the most fatty cuts. Paleolithic is NOT low fat!

Number two is the over emphasis on fruits and vegetables. Once the primate that became Man left the jungle, he no longer had routine access to RIPE fruits and vegetables. People with no farming or wilderness experience fail to grasp that fruits and vegetables are NOT ripe year around, and have very short time windows of when they are ripe. And Paleolithic Man had no means of preservation.

What was available year round was animal foods. Fatty, high protein, no carb animal foods.

Also, the Comment as to the life span of Paleolithic Man appears to have been pulled out of thin air. And while the AVERAGE life span of Paleolithic Man was lower than that of today, that is because infant mortality (which was horrific back then - for both the mother and baby), infectious diseases (no vaccines or antibiotics), and accident rates of just daily life were high. That caused the AVERAGE to show abnormally low. Paleolithic populations that reached adulthood tended to live much longer, easily into 60s and longer.

Specifically, archeological and anthropology experts and research consistently show that when Neolithic Agriculture (full scale farming, with heavy emphasis on starches - grains, legumes, and starchy vegetables - took hold, those Neolithic Peoples had MUCH lower life spans, significant chronic illness problems, dental problems, and were significantly shorter than their Paleolithic (and even animal husbandry Nomadic) predecessors.

This book instructs you on what foods are compatible with your genetic requirements. It informs you of the effects on your health, of consuming grains, sugars and milk products. Highly recommended read for those who are concerned about their health.
