Weekend Link Love – Edition 155

Videos [8] and slides [9] from the Ancestral Health Symposium are starting to go up, with more being added every day. Go take a look and see what you missed.

In the middle of the symposium, Robb Wolf, Mat Lalonde, and yours truly recorded an episode of Robb’s Paleo Solution Podcast. Take a listen [10] (and listen to the rest, if you haven’t already).

Who woulda thought that “specially formulated” biscuits would make male zoo gorillas obese and stricken with heart disease? In a huge twist, switching to a diet of green, fibrous things [11] corrected the problems.

John Durant (who also discussed obese zoo gorillas in his AHS talk) announces the 2011 Ancestral Health Symposium Award winners [12].

Diet and lifestyle aren’t everything. A new T-cell treatment [13] led to sustained (thus far), year-long remissions in advanced leukemia patients. Researchers extracted, genetically engineered, and reinserted the patients’ own T-cells, which then went on to take apart the tumors. Nice going, science. You too, engineered T-cells.

Be wary of oversimplification [14], says Chris Kresser, who makes the point that there is no single cause of, or treatment for, obesity in his latest post.

You’ve probably heard how antibiotic-resistant bacteria populations are growing, partly due to routine antibiotic administration to livestock. It all sounds very hopeless, right? Maybe not. A recent study [15] shows that conventional poultry farms that switch to organic methods see rapid drops in drug-resistant flora, even in the first post-transition flock!

Geography shmeography. An upcoming line of toys promises to teach your kids how to navigate a pig, cow, or sheep carcass [16].

I feel your pain. (literally). It took 1 month of PB to overcome 15 years of pain and fatigue from Fibromyalgia. Ah, the healing power of bacon!
