I just linked to this great blog by an Australian general practitioner: paleolithicdiet.wordpres

This particular post is great itself, but so are the other things I read here. Great stuff.

I liked to it from Robb Wolf's post here:

They were both really good, and the articles that are linked are great, and they remind us that almost all the "expert knowledge" we get bombarded with is a bad case of correlation implying causation.

Correlation does NOT imply causation. The only way to determine causation is through experimentation.

I also enjoyed a delicious salad for supper, of spring greens, sundried tomatoes, crumbled goat cheese, and sliced organic chicken sausage. Drizzled with a little EVOO = LOVE.

Four days after my Whole30 and I really have no desire to eat anything nonpaleo except dairy, which is my current experiment. No problems, really.

Happy Friday, all!

    Thanks for pointing these out!
    I'd read about the NC Tpye 1 diabetic man facing jail for his blog somewhere else.
    Even though I subscribe to Robb Wolf, I don't get blog updates. I need to figure out how to get RSS feeds or something. That was an awesome one.

    I really like that example.

    The one my biology professor used was diet pills and obese people.

    "More people who take diet pills are obese than thin. So, do diet pills make people fat, or do fat people take diet pills?"

    I love da goat chez!!!! And yes, I just learned this in my Research Methods class. Spurious effects is what happens when you connect two things that are not really connected when there is really a third factor that link the two. Like if you observed that people with bigger feet were better at math. You can't just assume that this is the reason. Age is usually why feet are bigger and can cause being better at math, but they aren't connected. At least this is what the example in the book said :P
