appetite, brain health, cochrane collaboration, exercise, fiber, gut bacteria, microbiome, pharma, protein, satiety, the overview effect
On this episode of Latest in Paleo, we look at recent research regarding dietary fiber, indicating benefits to health and appetite control. One study suggests the lack of gut microbiome diversity seen in people who don't eat much fiber may be passed down to future generations. And finally, is the fiber hype entering fad territory or is it legit? We also take a look at claims a Cochrane Collaboration co-founder has leveled against the pharmaceutical industry; he says they fit the definition for organized crime. This is really a must-listen segment.
Also this week, we feature a Human Movement Update after the News & Views, and we look at which exercises might be most effective for the brain. The Documentary Recommendation, Moment of Paleo, and After the Bell segments all relate to The Overview Effect; how seeing things from a higher level can drastically change our thinking. Enjoy the show!
