Paleo Diet Risk Assessment: Update
Hey folks, just wanted to provide a bit of recent media coverage on the risk assessment program here in Reno, NV. If you missed my first piece on this, you can find that here.
You might remember Dr. Kim Mulvihill and her 5 part news piece on paleo, looking at the AHS and research conducted by Dr. Frasetto from UCSF. I was able to talk with Dr. Mulvihill in between talks at PaleoFx and I told her about the program going on in Reno. She was pretty interested and came out on two occasions to interview the players in this story.
This link is to a solid write up on the News piece by KCBS, but most of the pertinent information is in the videos below:
Sorry, I cannot for the life of me get the damn embed codes to work.
Pretty impressive stuff and as always, the economics are what will either make or break this program. As it stands right now however, the ROI is remarkable.
We’ve received hundreds of inquiries from folks in various Police/Fire/MIL agencies. We are working on standard operating procedures to ship to folks so they can replicate programs like this.
And just to keep you off the streets causing trouble, here are some videos from the recent Specialty Health conference looking at insulin resistance, cancer and brain aging. Gary Taubes, Dr. Tara Dall (from the National Lipid Association) and several local doctors are on the various panels.
Now after all that love fest, we need little dose of reality. This video is of a Harvard Forum on Food Policy and Nutrition. In attendance are luminaries Such as Stephan Guyenet, Robert Lustig and the always clueless, Walter Willett, of the Harvard School of Public health. It’s interesting, Willett seems to believe that epidemiology + con-founder tinkering= the full scientific method. It’s obvious the Evolutionary template is no-where on this guys radar. So, as much good stuff as we have going on, we still have a long way to go baby!
