It's very nice to see some physicians on board - both for the benefit of patients and so eventually real data can be generated on this way of eating.
But I have a question for both physicians. I know that in many cases physicians are required to provide a certain "standard of care". So if you tell your patient to start eating a paleo diet and they subsequently have increased cholesterol and then have a heart attack, would you be more susceptible to litigation because you didn't prescribe statins and/or a low fat diet?
Don't get me wrong - I do NOT think a primal diet causes CAD - I believe inflammation is the problem. However, if you put enough people on the paleo diet, some of them are still going to have heart attacks, get cancer, have strokes, etc.....just wondering who will get the blame.
