Still fascinated with white people/neanderthal/asperger's continuum...
I am frequently finding myself playing with the puzzle pieces of this whole thing. White people being up to 4% Neanderthal and our skull shapes, dietary problems and solutions, social problems and largely useless genius. So many aspies have such amazing results by going paleo, granted any animal would, but the social and mental fog clearing up a bit, that whole thing, it's so huge. I think many people are missing out on knowing whether or not they are on the autism spectrum, if even a little, and how that has formed their interactions (or lack thereof) with other people. I was shocked to find out there are so many people like me, that I'm not alone. So many other weird, nerdy and or dorky white people may well just be slightly autistic and might have no idea! I didn't! But now, social traits and thought-processing differences aside, there are now many huge lists of distinct physical traits compiled common to both people on the spectrum and the ancient Neanderthal. It's becoming slightly more concrete with time and harder to ignore. Can we start spotting them medically and advising? Remember the "novel sign of celiac, large forehead" article a few years back? That's just exploded ever since, more and more traits linked to more and more genes and predispositions. Can we use them yet? At what point can we?

Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
