    It’s sad you know, I’ve been doing a lot of reading on paleo diet and there is just so much scientific proven evidence, but because there is the internet people can just bash stuff without any scientific structure.

    I absolutely agree with sean here, It’s all the grains and unnatural sugars we are eating that is killing our population and giving us these crazy diseases.

    As a society we are addicted to sugar and its killing us, we have to realize that we should eat what our guts were meant to digest, I love the argument of lifespan, If we were supossed to eat like cave men why did they have a shoter life expectancy? Thats because of things like no modern medician and FUCKING TIGERS eating us haha

    No evidence for cavemen with cancer or heart disease..

    Eating “Organic” “Grass fed” etc is expensive. However, it is not the area you should try to do some “saving”. You have to see it as an investment.

    ok You might hate me for saying this…

    As much as I agree with Mr Sean Croxton, and I do try to eat organic food as much as possible myself, I don’t think that the population today would survive on organic food only.

    All these articles and movies about gmo’s and organic food forget to mention that the world population is growing exponentially. How would we be able to feed the world population without growth accelerators. What percentage of crops would make it to the store shelves if it wasn’t for pesticides and preservatives?

    You might say “Just go to the farmer’s market”. Sure that’s what I do. But can you imagine if EVERYBODY went to the market? Once a week? It wouldn’t happen. Certainly not overnight. It would take some time but I’m still not convinced this is an easy route for worldwide health.

    Ok I gotta go eat my non-organic eggs 🙂

    Cheers!

    Poor health and obesity has been linked to income or social position. The things that are not healthy to eat are cheap and convenient. You can pick up a bag of chips for $1.00 but one large navel orange can cost the same price. That doesn’t seem to make sense. Also, fast food restaurants will get you a full meal and cheap. The convenience and rush of life is also having an impact on health.
    Advertising and promotion of the unhealthy stuff is influencing our perception of what is ‘ok’. Shouldn’t our government regulators get involved in this? …Especially since we have a govermenment funded health care system?
    Oh… that’s right… they are influenced and corrupted by the big companies that profit from all of this.

    I have been following the zone for several months now. The better I get at it… the more it costs. It is an investment and I am seeing benefits. Unfortunately not everyone is in a position to purchase the healthy stuff for every meal and snack.

    This kind of debate is good… but the audience is most likely already a believer.

    Happy Sunday!

    I agree there are certain organic foods that you should , not all need to be though

    I prefer to eat food that has not been processed to crap …I love the market and it is where I get 90% of my food from , I believe that we need to start cooking for ourselves as opposed to buying ready made foods which are usually filled with sugars and salt and no nutritional value …I believe in eating a wide variety of foods, which include carbs, meats, veggies and fruits and fresh water ….don’t really follow any diet plan per-say …just eat what makes me feel good….and on the odd occasion i may eat something I consider crap …but I doubt I will die from it ….we all need a treat once in awhile :o)
