  • NPR goes primal

    In case this hasn't been posted yet, NPR covered the dawn of prehistoric meat-eating today. This is an easily digestible (har har) overview of why meat and cooking is good, and why vegetarianism and raw foodism might not be so good.

        Even better than the other articles are the comments for this article:

        "Was this story courtesy of the beef industry? Eating some lean meat like fish is good, but eating fatty red meat every week is not good and it is one of the leading causes of high blood pressure, heart attacks, cancer, and obesity."

        I would have thought that comments on the NPR page would provide a teeny weeny bit more in-depth analysis than that.

                i didn't listen to this story, but my dad, who is an avid npr listener, forwarded me a link on raw milk and other raw foods. i'll see if i can find it.
                i will maintain the truth
                i knew naturally as a child
                i won't forfeit my creativity
                to a world that's all laid out for me
                i'll look at everything around me
                and i will vow to bear in mind
                that all of this was just someone's idea
                it could just as well be mine - ani difranco

                    This was another comment, dude can't even spell protein...

                    "In fact, our brains need glucose. Meat does not contain carbohydrates and therefore cannot provide glucose.

                          I subscribed to the podcasts, but a couple didn't come through -- the one about eating meat to get smart is the main one I want to hear! It says it aired Aug. 2 - what gives?

                          I'm not that handy with podcasts- anyone know?

                          I like to listen to news on my ipod sometimes --- weird, I know.
