    Taubes is pretty flawed, so I guess it depends on the perspective.

    Even before I went primal, I wondered why mainstream medicine and dieticians were pushing the same diet on us that we use to fatten up feedlot animals for slaughter. There is nothing- NOTHING- that whole grains offers our diets that a balanced diet of other foods won't give you. The focus in the US on getting so many servings of whole grains is baffling. I read recently about a school that determined a child's packed lunch from home wasn't complete (it had a meat, a veggie, a milk, and a fruit) because it didn't have any grain. So they gave the kid a pack of Ritz crackers, and charged the parents $5 for the privilege.

    Yep, but that was here in Canada. Somewhere in Manitoba, I think. Same stupid recommendations, though.

    How did our ancestors survive without 48g of whole grain per day? They must have been so unhealthy.

    Well look at them! They're all dead now, so obviously they had a terrible diet!
