My opinion is to let each individual read the science & make a decision for themselves. I won't force my decision on someone else so I hope that they will show the same respect.

Be careful when you pass judgement on another. Life teaches us lessons in harsh ways when we are mean to others.

Regarding the Paleo/Primal lifestyle, I have read both negative and positive things about it. It boils down to everyone having their own thoughts about it, the opinions, for and against it, are endless. I appreciate hearing other points of views, some are not completely wrong because this lifestyle, like any other nutritional program has its pros and cons... Before I started this lifestyle I questioned it a lot and at first thought it was not something I would want to follow. However, a sparkfriend persuaded me to try it, just for a month. After reading all of the information I was provided by my friend and what I could find on my own, I tried the diet out, it worked and I lost weight, but I wasn't sold on it until I had my blood work done. When all the tests came back good, I was totally on board, tweaking it to fit my needs and what I could live with while still making progress. This lifestyle is catching on more and more as people are meeting more and more folks who are following it and seeing great results. It is controversial, but I think as people become healthier, i.e., reversing Type II diabetes, lowering LDL levels (ME), helping with weight loss (ME) and much, much more, people will make up their own minds about what is best for them.

I must say that I love marketing strategies... marketing is an excellent tool to get information out to people. I have found out about a lot of different things just from advertising, i.e. tv ads, newspapers, magazines, etc. If something peaks my interest, I just do a bit of marketing research of my own.

Thanks for bringing up this topic for discussion! emoticon

The media makes money on stuff that grabs attention. It is frequently full of misinformation. Very sad as a lot of people take magazine articles, TV commercials, talk shows, newspapers as educational sources. Sad.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Has anyone else noticed the Paleo/Primal lifestyle popping up in the media more and more? I am always interested in reading the articles. Sometimes it is for and sometimes against. The arguments against can be down right ridiculous. It kills me when I read comments like: Eat like a caveman? Well, they didn't have forks back then either!
How do you feel about the media's attention?
