I’ve been hearing a lot about paleo diets over the last few months.
I don’t buy it.
Yeah, people ate nuts and berries for most of human history. Maybe a little meat. Whatever they could catch or run down.
But for most of human history life expectancy was pretty low.
There’s a correlation between the invention of agriculture and the beginning of living beyond your 20s.
(Yeah, I know correlation isn’t the same as causation. But I’m still not buying it.)
