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!

Great to be back! I had a lot of fun with this episode, and in it you'll hear me express some skepticism about some of the people and products entering the Paleo scene as it gets larger. Topics covered include: Frankensteer, how fast food is designed to keep you hungry, cattle being fed candy, doctors prescribing drugs to healthy kids, Kennewick Man. Also, recommendations to a friend with bowel issues. We talk about fake gurus in the Moment of Paleo. In the After the Bell segment, we'll hear about the weight epidemic and what doctors don't always know about the drugs they prescribe.
