Celebrity farmer Joel Salatin delivered the key note speech at the 2nd annual Ancestral Health Conference. This video just came online.

Tomorrow, April 1st, 60 Minutes will air a segment with Dr. Robert Lustig, “Is Sugar Toxic?” While researchers within the ancestral health community differ on the “toxicity” of sugar, what I find even more compelling than the link between sugar and obesity (and all of the related health disorders) is the link between sugar and [...]

Anarcho-Ancestral Exercise

Saturday, January 21, 2012 20:37 3 Comments

Josh Noel, writing for the Chicago Tribune, has done an excellent job of getting it right on the philosophy of ancestral health. Called Paleo, primal, caveman or — the umbrella term of the moment — ancestral, the regimen replaces contemporary “working out” with real-life movements that our Paleolithic ancestors used to survive: pushing, pulling, lifting, [...]
