    Exactly which grains are you talking about? The pre-1980 ones that I ate without incident, or the current bastardized ones that give me raging, debilitating eczema? Because modern, GMO grains have most definitely been linked to quite a few auto-immune disorders (like fibromyalgia) as well as an increase in gluten allergies/intolerances.

    Why do you think there are so many ads on TV for immunosuppressant and antidepressant drugs?

    I could EASILY make the same claim for vegetarianism. You can find tons of forums and blogs just like the ones you are talking about that show people with improved health after dropping meat. How is primal any different from vegetarianism in terms of what blogs and people on forums dedicated to the diet say about it?

That makes no rational, logical sense. When so many people are eating diets full of grains and processed foods (with HFCS and other grain based derivatives in it) and their health continues to decline by following the same advice doctors/nutritionists/ect have been giving for decades...doesn't that say their way is broken? I can't make any other conclusion. I acknowledge there are an infinite number of variables to take into account with such a broad statement (genetics, exercise, illness, ect) but the human body responds more to diet than anything-if the diet is messed up, than you might as well not even bother.
    Replace grains with meat, and primal with vegetarianism, and someone on a vegetarian website can say the exact same thing. You can't even deny it.

    Primal will never become mainstream. But my points are 100% valid and you just have to do some searches for vegetarian blogs and forums to know that I am right. In fact, I bet there are a lot more vegetarian blogs and forums than primal/paleo ones.

    You'd be hard pressed to find a vegetarian that made absolutely no changes other than dropping meat. And vegetarian is actually quite possible (if you also drop glutenous grains) while vegan is going to cause health problems further down the road.

    The usual case has the convert going from McDonald's biggest Facebook fan to vegetarian, so of course they feel better.

Not all of us for sure, as some are better in adapting then others. But let's face it, fat people maybe don't adapt that well, thats why they are fat after all.
    Comparing trans fats and cigarettes to grains is laughable. There have been TONS of studies on grains and they don't show that they are bad. You could say they are all a big conspiracy, but is that really the logical explanation? Or you could come up with some other round about way of rationalizing all the studies that disagree with you.

    Off topic but I guarantee this is complete bullshit. So lets see some sources, for this AND for increases in celiac disease. Also, even if celiac disease has increased, can you link me to some study that shows it has to do with grain consumption?

    And you would be hard pressed to find any primal people that JUST dropped grains from their diet. And if that is all it took for them to go primal then they were probably already healthy.

    Maybe you should try getting your info from websites not owned by the grain industry. Then you might have a better grasp on the situation.

    I don't understand, I don't know if you're just trying to get people riled up, you're illiterate, or what, but most of the newer research clearly suggests that grains cause adverse reactions in almost ALL people who consume them. There is also strong suggestions that the primal diet is vastly superior to others when it comes to total nutrient intake, according to the research. When you put yourself in the shoes of a Grok, and you realize that bc of eating primally, I COULD go up to 72 hours (in my case) without food before I started feeling problems, it's pretty apparent to me that this is the way we were "designed" to eat. Any diet that eliminates the junk will certainly make you feel better, but a vegetarian that feels great may not know how great they would feel if they ate real meat. There's a reason our body and brains reward us for high caloric, fatty meals, and when you realize you can eat that way and effortlessly maintain or lose weight, common sense is pretty much slapping you in the face at that point. And by the way, do you even look at who those studies you look at are funded by? Maybe we could start a topic about properly dissecting research results.

    A lot of the research that suggests that dropping meat is so healthy for cancer prevention is bc of the pH balance of your body. The two most acidic things we put in our bodies are animal products and grains. Eliminate one and reduce your acid load, you will have better health. So which one is right? Ounce for ounce, grains are more acidic, we just tend to not eat as "heavy" of portions. But balancing it out by eating a full plate of fruits and veggies alongside a primal dinner? Awesome health.

    No, that's just what happens to every single thread on this forum.
