Nutritional Concepts 
Diet for Generations.
Two of the foremost researchers regarding genetics and nutrition have spoken. We have and continue to hold S Boyd Eaton and Loren Cordain in the highest regard. Their original research, published in 2000, started a movement. Since then, their research has become even more meaningful.

Why should this be important to you?

These scientists have further cemented the ideals that encapsulates being a Nutritional Concepts client. Eaton and Cordain confirm that not only are YOU on the right path, but future generations are as well.

Forgive us for grossly basking in their commentary. Not only do Eaton and Cordain, in their subtle way, call out Big Food, Big Academia, Big Nutrition, Big Agriculture, and Big Government, they present the data in such pragmatic fashion.

The following excerpts appear in the February issue of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

We Are No Different From Our Ancestors
According to Eaton and Cordain, "nearly all the genes and epigenetic regulatory mechanisms we carry today were originally selected for behaviorally modern humans who appeared in Africa between 100,000 and 50,000 years ago. Genetic evolution during subsequent millennia has continued, as shown by pigmentation changes, intestinal lactase retention beyond infancy, and adaptive defenses to microorganisms. However, core biochemical and physiologic processes have been preserved. Accordingly, it can be argued that the typical diet, physical activity patterns, and body composition of late Paleolithic humans remain normative for contemporary humans - and models for disease-prevention recommendations."

Conventional Nutrition Advice Flawed
They go on to say "unbiased observers would agree that nutritional advice from conventional sources, whether based upon epidemiological or mechanistic findings, has not affected complex degenerative disease incidence and prevalence as much as might be wished. Gradually, such recommendations (and some biomarker goals) are shifting toward the ancestral exemplar."

Come Together, Right Now
"The health research community needs to organize its terms, concepts, observations, and arguments in accordance with paeloanthropologic insights. To achieve a paradigm shift of this magnitude will require the mental agility to integrate ideas and data from widely separate disciplines - heretofore an uncommon characteristic of our much-fragmented academic community."

The Results Are Undeniable
Eaton and Cordain state, "Groups whose way of life tends to continue the Stone Age pattern have low rates of complex degenerative diseases. The Paleolithic health paradigm heightens expectations as a psychologically powerful influence on future health-related public behavior."

As recently observed in journal Nature, "It is difficult to refute the assertion that if modern populations returned to a hunter-gatherer state then obesity and diabetes would not be the major public health threats that they are now."

Renowned genetics and nutrition expert, Dr. Artemis Simopoulos, agrees with a return to a modified hunter gatherer approach: "Our genes today are very similar to the genes of 40,000 years ago, at which time our genetic profile was established. Humans today live in a nutritional environment that differs from that for which our genetic constitution was selected."

Is Eating the Way Our Ancestors Did Still Possible?
Of course it is possible! Many of you are already doing it. It is called the Circle of Health, which is our modified version of the Mediterranean Diet.

In addition to providing two dynamite charts which further explain their findings (a must see by clicking on link below), Eaton and Cordain finish their commentary with the following:

"Proponents of evolutionary health promotion maintain that this principle applies to all the complex degenerative "diseases of civilization" and that an appreciation of human experience during the late Paleolithic will eventually become the foundation for preventive research and recommendations."

Having Email Trouble?
We have been receiving reports from clients who are not receiving our eNewsletters and responses to their email questions. Rest assured that your questions are being answered and that our eNewsletters are being published.

You may be having trouble because email providers have been cracking down on email they think is SPAM (email sent without permission). Here's how you can assure that emails from us get through:
  • Check your email settings.
    You may have inadvertently blocked or designated our email as spam. Every email provider has a link called "Settings." There should be a category called "Spam Settings." Click on that and make sure you did not designate mail from our email addresses to be "blocked" or considered spam.
  • Put us in your email address book.
    Make sure that you enter both and into your email address book/contacts list. This way your email provider will recognize us as a friend.
  • Check your spam folder.
    Just as everyone has an inbox and sent folder, there is the spam folder, which houses emails recognized as spam by your email provider. If you send us an email and do not receive a response from us within 24-48 hours, chances are it went into your spam folder. If your settings hold spam emails for a period of days or weeks, you will most likely find our email(s) there.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you need further direction.

Have a happy, healthy day.
