However, you actually make a decent point. It's important for all of us to always evaluate new information and combine it with what we know to be true for our own bodies. If someone feels healthier without grains, why would that person add them back in because MAYBE our ancestors ate them?
Oh well, you can go back to base and report to PETA that you did your best.
I pesonally don't think bacon is better than fruit and that some people go overboard in their bacon worship. However, it's tasty and in weight loss mode, I can see using more bacon than fruit as a temporary measure. Of course, those with diabetic issue have to really watch the fruit.
Mark certainly doesn't advocate overdosing on bacon: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/bacon/
Here he says a diet of steak and bacon is not going to lead to good health http://www.marksdailyapple.com/are-t...ny-good-carbs/
Here he calls it a sensible vice -http://www.marksdailyapple.com/sensible-vices/
Then here he says there is no such thing as too much bacon or butter http://www.marksdailyapple.com/how-much-is-too-much/ -not sure if that was a joke or what but its seems out of line with his other posts.

I don't see the mention of "grains" (wheat, barely, souguhm etc) anywhere in that article.
I do see that they used a microscope to look at a grain (as in small partical) of whatever plant they found.
I don't see anything that would discredit paleo or primal.
I am not sure why they added the cooking bit. They could have fermented the starch just as easily as cooking it.

I always assume people know what I am talking about. Big mistake.
Not that I think you should know what I am talking about. Bah! See what I mean haha!
I get the sense that a lot of what Marks says in PB is distorted on this forum by people with either low comprehension and intelligence or their own agenda.
