The Paleo Diet is championed by Dr. Loren Cordain, professor of health and exercise science at Colorado State University. The China Study is a book by T. Colin Campbell, Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of In a written debate with Campbell in , nutritionist Loren Cordain argued that “the fundamental logic underlying Campbell’s hypothesis (that.

Loren Cordain (Paleo) vs. T. Colin Campbell (Plant-based) Debate

Observational epidemiological studies can only show relationships among variables and are notorious for showing conflicting results 68 and cannot provide decisive evidence by themselves either for or against specific hypotheses Additional information and specifics may be found in the articles, books, and materials listed on this web site, and through The Paleo Diet Newsletter. This is my philosophy, both of nutrition and of the scientific method itself. Early hominid hunting and scavenging: The study of human nutrition remains an immature science because it lacks a universally acknowledged unifying paradigm.

We are fortunate to have so many food options available, and our greatest chances for good health and long life come from a whole food, plant-based diet.

The whole shift in thinking about saturated fat has been really interesting to watch. The Ethnographic Evidence Our analysis Figure 3 of the Ethnographic Atlas data 62 showed that the dominant foods in the majority of historically studied hunter-gatherer diets were derived from animal food sources These central concepts are not theories for each fordain, but rather are indisputable facts that serve as orientation points for all other inquiry within each discipline.

I do not subscribe to the tenor and substance of this section suggesting such importance for genes and gene mutations in the evolution of the dietary influence on health. In short, this is how it goes: In animal studies it has been long recognized that excessive consumption of cereal grains can induce vitamin Cambpell deficiencies and bone mineral abnormalities in a wide variety of animals including primates Comp Biochem Physiol A ; At this point, it is worth noting that most people, for a very long time, have been concerned about getting enough protein.


Stone tool cut marks on the bones of prey animals and evidence for marrow extraction appear concurrently in the fossil record with the development of Oldowan lithic campbelp by at least 2.

In reality, Brenner demonstrated that patients with pre-existing kidney disease had an elevated GFR, glomerulosclerosis and microalbuminuria and that by reducing dietary protein the GFR and microalbuminuria could be lowered Several studies, including a campbepl of our own over 25 years ago Science Both these criticisms are actually criticisms against large quantities of butter.

Meat consumption and risk of cajpbell cancer: If we ate large amounts of any veegie, ie broccoli, as we do grains we would probably suffered. When developing these complex physical products, we precisely make the component parts then precisely assemble them into complex products.

Timing of amino acid-carbohydrate ingestion alters anabolic response of muscle to resistance exercise. This same biological complexity describes the essence of nutritional effects or, perhaps, describes what nutritional science should be. Again, our own research supports these views. Colin Cambell and Dr.

What About The China Study?

The priority should be given to searching for dietary factors that cause “collective disease and health outcomes” to guide nutritional recommendations. As you can see, Lisle also relies cprdain some brilliant work of others Dawkins and Williams in this field.

Really read what each of these awesome people has to say and try it for yourself – otherwise, you will never know if it works. Monetary value can be measured precisely but, more importantly, intellectual property protection is enhanced with more precise knowledge.


This is a serious error, and that makes major mistakes quiet possible, even likely. To the critics of either side, don’t knock it ’til you try it.

J Am Diet Assoc. Hill and Wang, New York, Indeed, nothing in nutrition seems to make sense because most nutritionists have little or no ocrdain training in evolutionary theory, much less human evolution.

Why I Completely Agree w. Vegan Crusader T. Colin Campbell | Christopher James Clark

Diet and health policy has been structured in such a way so as to protect the consumption of animal-based protein. This article may present fringe theorieswithout giving appropriate weight to the mainstream viewand explaining the responses to the fringe theories. We now know that it is the nutritional control of gene expression that matters far more.

Characterization of meat consumption and risk of colorectal cancer in Cordoba, Argentina. The evidence presented by modern nutritional science suggests that something akin to this may well be the case for humans, who have a large constellation of disease processes that can be laid at the door of animal foods, and effectively reversed with vegan diets see Ornish, Esselstyn, McDougall, etc.

The Paleo Diet: What’s the Story? – Center for Nutrition Studies

A good place to begin understanding how much protein to consume is with the recommended daily allowance RDA, now recommended daily cordaon, RDI that has been repeatedly re-evaluated and re-established for the past plus years by many official bodies.
