Stress, autoimmune diseases, obesity. These modern epidemics were not a part of the paleolithic landscape, but they certainly plague us now. Chris Kresser, author of "The Paleo Cure" and functional medicine practitioner, recommends that we look back to the wisdom of our ancestors to experience vibrant health today. In this episode, he tells us his story: how a health crisis precipitated his interest in nutrition and medicine, and how the Weston A. Price Foundation played a part in his journey back to health. Chris emphasizes how geography and genetics play a role in determining our diet and he touches on the pivotal role of fats and the need to decrease or manage our stress.

    Well unfortunately he's one of those Paleo people. They make all sorts of off-the-wall claims that aren't backed by real science. I ignore the Paleo nonsense and just stick to Price's principles on traditional food wisdom.

    I'm sorry, but I was really disappointed in this podcast. It seemed that Mr. Kresser spent at least half the time preaching his evolution viewpoint. He makes multiple off the wall claims that are just not true; for instance that 10,000 years ago people could not digest lactose because there were no milk products in their die. On what does he base this claim? I have enjoyed every episode until this one. Unfortunately, this one falls way short.
