This book looks promising. Maybe not that much additional info for people who have done paleo/low-carb for a while, but a good resource for people just learning about the negative effect of grains (incl. whole grains) on our health. ... Read more
How addictive are carbs really?
Tuesday, September 10, 2013      18 comments
