Robb Wolf on Things PaleoSunday, February 12, 2012
This is a fantastic 68-minute video from Robb Wolf that covers the basics of the paleo diet. As one blogger wrote, “Robb did a masterful job of explaining how putting diet into an evolutionary biology framework allows for a deeper understanding how diet impacts chronic diseases.” This video is essentially a top-level summary done in a format very similar to his podcasts. Robb covers many topics on a broad level that is very easy for the layman to understand.
Robb, an avowed Ron Paul supporter, even answers a question about what should be taught, about diet, to children in schools. Robb admits that he is nervous about suggesting any top-down, authoritarian attempt at shoehorning a public health policy, because these efforts are akin to organized brainwashing that leaves us with such disastrous outcomes as the federal food pyramid. Robb, like all paleos, favors private, bottom-up efforts to educate the public, as well as decentralized, sustainable food systems. I highly recommend this video to those who are looking for a broad introduction to the paleo-primal-ancestral health lifestyle.
