DESCRIPTION: An evolutionary argument for a plant-based diet is presented, in contrast to "paleo" fad diets. For those interested in digging deeper, there was an interesting Scientific American blog this summer entitled "Human Ancestors Were Nearly All Vegetarians" (http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/g...) and there's an in-depth video series on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/user/Primitive...). I wrote a whole book on the former low carb fad incarnation, Carbophobia (http://www.amazon.com/Carbophobia-Sca...), now available free online like all of my work (http://www.atkinsexposed.org/). I also have two videos on the topic, Atkins Diet: Trouble Keeping It Up (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/atkin...) and Plant-Based Atkins Diet (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/plant...).

Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/paleo... and he'll try to answer it!
