Katharine Milton, PhD versus The Paleo Diet

The Paleo Diet is one of the latest diet fads.  It may lead to weight loss, at least in the short term.  However, in my opinion, it is not a healthy diet, containing way too much saturated fat and animal protein, both of which have been linked by loads of research to the chronic diseases that affect so many people around the world.

Katharine Milton, PhD was a recent Guest Speaker at the McDougall Advanced Study Weekend in Santa Rosa, CA. Dr. Milton is a professor of physical anthropology at the University of California in Berkeley. Her research focuses on the dietary ecology and digestive physiology of Primates, both humans and non-human. 

This video is one of the most powerful arguments I have heard against the Paleo Diet.
