“The latest issue of The Paleo Diet Newsletter is available at Once again we are proud to present some ground-breaking, scientifically documented, and practical information that you will not find anywhere else. This time we continue last month’s discussion on Dietary Lectins: An Unrecognized Risk Factor for Cardiovascular Disease. Read it and apply it – it might save your life.
We also talk about protein and sarcopenia; grains, milk, and the risk of kidney cancer; and what the science says about berries and cardiovascular disease. Also, we have a terrific testimonial from an athlete who follows The Paleo Diet for Athletes.
As a reminder, Dr. Cordain will be giving a presentation at The Healing Journey 2008 seminar held in Boulder, Colorado on April 26, titled The Potential Therapeutic Characteristics of Pre-Agricultural Diets in the Prevention and Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis.

Begin forwarded message:

The latest version of The Paleo Diet Newsletter is now available at  In this issue, we celebrate the release of the paperback version of The Dietary Cure for Acne with an interview with Dr. Cordain about just that topic. We also cover lectins and food poisoning, and address a question about Paleolithic man’s consumption of legumes, grains, and tubers.

We are proud to announce the available of two new resources. The first is the paperback version of The Dietary Cure for Acne. If you have not yet read this because you did not want to download and print out an ebook, now is your chance to obtain the book in paperback form. Whether you have acne or not, if you are interested in optimum health and nutrition you should read this book and have it on your bookshelf.

Also newly available is the DVD Acne Vulgaris: A Disease of Western Civilization; Understanding The Dietary Cure for Acne. This recording is of a talk given last year at the Boulderfest nutrition conference. It comes complete with 70 footnoted slides, and gives a clear explanation of the evidence supporting the relationship between diet and acne.

Both the book and DVD are available at The book retails for $24.95, and the DVD is priced at $19.95

PS What I like about this stuff from Prof Cordain is that it is backed up by references (many of which he has authored) in reputable peer-reviewed scientific journals, and that his reputation as an academic at a well-regarded university (Colorado State) is on the line 
 …….    as opposed to half-baked theories/theoreticians/diet gurus you often see on ‘the net’.
