I found the idea that certain young people can do fine on a neolithic diet interesting.

Miscellaneous / Post your nails!

Possible social networking campaign - pics of healthy nails with text something like - Paleo diet - no dairy and strong, healthy nails. A similar campaign could be done with eyes or abs or hair (not in my case...)

I've been paleo for a year now - my nails are growing fast, no white spots and the ridging that was there before seems to be lessening.

I can't believe I haven't heard of this writer before! I took a trip out of the city yesterday to a British charity shop where I can usually find some good literature and interesting non-fiction - I've always liked getting my books there as I find that a narrowed choice can sometimes lead you down avenues you wouldn't normally explore....

"African Genesis" by Robert Ardrey was all I could find of interest this time - written 50 years ago! So far I love it.... this is from the first page

"Not in innocence, and not in Asia, was mankind born. The home of our fathers was that African highland reaching north from the Capes to the Lakes of the Nile. Here we came about -slowly, ever so slowly- on a sky-swept savannah glowing with menace.

In neither bankruptcy nor bastardy did we face our long beginnings. Man's line is legitimate. Our ancestry is firmly rooted in the animal world, and to its subtle, antique ways our hearts are yet pledged. Children of all animal kind, we inherited many a social nicety as well as the predator's way. But most significant of our gifts, as things turned out, was the legacy bequeathed to us by those killer apes, our immediate forebears. Even in the first long days of our beginnings we held in our hand the weapon, an instrument somewhat older than ourselves."
