When looking at composition of human mother's milk its clear that protein is much lower than protein fanatics would like to believe.  What about the high fat content.  Is my guess correct that its only there for the rapid growth of the child and that as child ages the need for fat drops off dramatically?  Does this phenomena happen with other species?

Thanks Rawbert.  Just read an article on huff post where the author claimed to be a fan of Paleo and yet said things that disagreed with Cordain.  It was said that Cordain then sent a bunch of names of scientists who supposedly back up this claim that paleolithic man ate large quantities of meat.  Now I've seen McDougal with Dominy refuting this.  Can you guys recommend any works that show more of what Dominy is talking about ie: paleolithic women/men as starch eaters.  Thanks

Cells get glucose deprived when you die.. you can't 'starve' cells, your body must maintain normal blood glucose levels even during a fast, otherwise you die.

Healing occurs because you stop loading your body with toxins so the body has a chance to do some house cleaning and recovery.

paul, you can see a point-for-point refutation here:

Has Denise Minger Read 'The China Study'? -- A Collective Rebuttal

So I got into a very relaxed state to watch Denise, cause I get a little irate when I watch it.  I think I'd like to go through the whole thing and point for point show why what she's saying is nonsense.  The first point she makes is that Vegan diets work because of lots of other factors outside of meat.  But by this reasoning she can't prove that Paleo works either.  I think Dr. Campbell addresses this in his response to her when he says something about 1 to 1 correlations.  Does anybody understand this and can you clarify for me.  Thanks

Yeah, I just want to add to this Rob.  The error lies in equating glucose with the cause of cancer.  Now there might be some overlap here with fasting.  You can see tremendous and rapid decline of cancer and tumors with fasting where all cells would be glucose deprived.  In this situation the body breaks down that which is least necessary to use what it can and throw out that which is bad.  Perhaps the best indicator for healthy foods is to consider what caused the cancer in the first place.  The Hygienic doctors who know most about fasting also recommend very basic, natural diets with fruits and vegetables for recovery.

Hey Doll,

it's a shame we see so much of this CRAP out there. Glucose and fructose feeds cells!! Cells need sugar (carbohydrates-CARBON) and oxygen for energy. Starving cells of sugar (FUEL!) to starve cancer cells (aka weakened/damaged cells) is the same logic allopathy uses destroying cells with chemo and radiation. STUPID STUPID!! CRAP CRAP... SUPER STUPID CRAP!! ... but I ain't mad. ;-) Lol!

It's unawareness of how the body and nature works. Keep on your path sweetheart, and shine everywhere you go. Don't worry about what others do because it's their choices, not yours. And they deal with the consequences, because all this Paleo, Atkins, Primal diet CRAP is just regurgitation of the same, well, CRAP. High protein/fat, animal diets are DEATH diets. It's SO freakin obvious, but people will look for any CRAP they can hold on to so they can justify their complacency.

Love your way, everyday! =) 13

wow...i am on what is sure to be my first of many readings of this amazing account. It reads like a 'This is your life...". Explains so many things and also reinforces where I am and strengthens my resolve as to where I am heading. I am only up to pg 83 but am curious as to whether he explains why they did not uses meat protein as opposed to milk protein/casein in any of their initial rat experiments? I know they explored veg protein, fats etc but I am left with this question!
