    April 2013 Discover Magazine Article on Paleo

    This was an interesting article that came out in Discover this month. I think it's a good discussion about Paleo/Primal eating and living. They mention Mark in there too.

    A growing movement seeks to reproduce the hunter-gatherer lifestyle: running barefoot, pondering polygamy, relying on a diet of meat. But even our ancestors never lived this way. And besides, modern humans have evolved.

    Hey no one told me about the polygamy! Two husbands. If the plural of mouse is mice, then maybe the plural of spouse is spice.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Hahahaha!!! First I've heard of that too. I booted my first husband for thinking he could have more than one.

    Nope. One woman & multiple husbands = ployandry. One man % multiple wives = polygamy.

    Yeah, I haven't heard speculation about polygamy. But I understand members of this forum are speculating about polyandry at this very moment.

    Nope. Polygamy is a general term. It can mean either sex (or both) keep multiple partners. Polyandry = you are correct. Polygyny = one man & multi wives specifically.

    Polygyny is the opposite of polyandry, now that the cobwebs are out of my head.

    Yes. That's what I was trying to say. I think successfully, but maybe I made an error I'm not seeing...

    I like meat, but one husband is plenty.

    John, you liked that article in Discover? I just read it and thought it was embarrassingly bad! She seemed to get her definition of paleo from obscure comments from paleo blogs and used those to illustrate "paleofantasies." I was wondering if she was an insulted vegan or something. Her "science weighs in" arguments didn't contain any science or references, only statements like, ' so and so suggests..." I was embarrassed for Discover magazine.
