I’ve been hearing a lot about paleo diets over the last few months.

I don’t buy it.

Yeah, people ate nuts and berries for most of human history. Maybe a little meat. Whatever they could catch or run down.

But for most of human history life expectancy was pretty low.

There’s a correlation between the invention of agriculture and the beginning of living beyond your 20s.

(Yeah, I know correlation isn’t the same as causation. But I’m still not buying it.)
