Michael Savage just mentioned the caveman diet
« on: June 14, 2007, 07:48:58 PM »
I'm a talk radio nerd and just heard Michael Savage go off on how human bodies haven't changed much since the "old days" and some smart people think eating like the cavemen did would fix many of our problems

Thought it was cool he knew about it and supported the idea

Wow, that is quite excellent.

In a similar vein, I've noticed recently that in a lot of girly magazines the diets that they promote are practically paleo but they just don't use that word.  They talk about eating only "lean proteins and lots of veggies" and stuff like that.  Really it's low-carb too, but that's another dirty word that the mags won't use.  I'm glad it's catching on, no matter how they decide to package it.  People have been sick for too long.

I'm also a talk radio junkie, and usually tune in Savage on my way home from work.  I think his opinions on diet carry some weight- he holds master's degrees in medical botany and medical anthropology[3] and earned a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in nutritional ethnomedicine.[4] As Michael Weiner, he has written a number of books on herbal medicine and homeopathy. (ref. Wikipedia's entry on Michael Savage).  Not that his degrees are any guarantee of nutritional validity in his commentary, but a Ph.D in nutritional ethnomedicine puts him a cut above Joe Schmoe, perhaps..

It's encouraging that media people, who influence a lot of the population with their views, are realizing that the paleo WoE makes a lot of sense, and are willing to comment favorably upon this concept..

 ;D  I do admit to a sick fascination with In Touch and those dirty Cosmos.  You know, when I'm not out chasing my food down, naked and painted blue, with a sharp stick.

Do I want to know what Tiger Beat is?   :o
