What is MRSA? Another Reason We Need Good Bacteria

Germs have been strategizing against the effects of antimicrobial agents from a variety of sources (including other microbes) for billions of years. So as far as bacteria are concerned, manmade antibiotics represent just another challenge, the most recent of a long series of biological puzzles to solve. Instead of killing good and bad bacteria (like MRSA) indiscriminately with antimicrobials, it makes more sense to support your immune system and the good bacteria who will fight off the bad guys for you!

The Miracle Moment: How to help an autistic child step into the world

Twenty years ago diabetes was assumed to be a genetic disorder. Now we understand that diabetes is a consequence of unhealthy diet and other lifestyle factors. Just as those of us physicians in the low-carb community currently use diet to prevent and even reverse diabetes and its complications, I believe we will soon see similar progress in treating and preventing autism.

Canola Oil: The blob that ate butter, olive oil, coconut oil and peanut oil threatens American cuisine

Canola oil can constitute up to 1/3 of the calories in even a high-end restaurant meal, making your $50 plate a health hazard.

Most people who read Deep Nutrition, I'm happy to say, wind up liking it. But every once in a while we get a hate mail or a negative review on Amazon explaining in explicit detail exactly why we should pack our bags and return to whatever corner of Hell we came from.

Going Low-Carb too Fast May Trigger Thyroid Troubles and Hormone Imbalance

Some folks who’ve taken the Primal leap—particularly those who were previously on a high-carb diet—have been faced with unexpected side effects waving them back to the world of bread, sugary fruits and sweet potato casserole.

How Your Diet Affects Hormones

The epidemic of obesity is also an epidemic of hormone malfunction, including thyroid, testosterone, estrogen, growth hormone, cortisol, and more. If you eat a Standard American Diet, not only are your fat-burn enzymes likely to be totally blocked, your hormonal systems fail to communicate properly and the effect is like a kind of accellerated aging.

Is dairy paleo? Revising history with new persectives on flocks of goats, femur bones and feckless nutritionism

A few decades ago, people of Paleo were universally against dairy. Today, the attitude towards dairy is undergoing a transformation. Still, the official word on dairy is a luke-warm maybe rather than the resounding yes I think it deserves to be. I believe many of us can add dairy into our diet not just for good health, but also to more accurately reproduce a true Paleolithic era diet.
