Found this article through Mark’s Daily Apple. I’m biting my tongue to hold back the obvious joke about wood here. What is fascinating to me is the connection between hormone boosting and the environment. It goes along with other articles about the effect of working out in nature has on the human body and some similar advice from Mark Sission.

Here is a great article about the cholesterol myth from a non paleo/primal source. It is nice to see this debunked in a site outside of our normal resources that may get more widely read.

Well this is scary! Read this from io9.com: If you love bacon, then you ought to be careful about getting a bite from a lone star tick — unlike other tick bites, which can spread diseases like Lyme disease, a lone star tick bite can actually make you allergic to red meat
Nice no nonsense article on the rise of grass fed meat.
Grazing pastures provide habitat for lots of creatures, not just cows, from big bluestem to prairie chickens. When managed properly, they can store carbon [PDF] in much the same way that a forest does. Finishing cows on the range eliminates the need for concentrated animal feeding operations, or CAFOs, which sully water quality fromlittle creeks all the way down the Mississippi River and into the Gulf of Mexico.
And no grains whatsoever?
The agricultural industry has done a great job convincing Americans that we need five to 11 servings of grain every day. But grains are totally health destroying. Like other Paleo diets, my plan has no grains. For people who don’t want my strict Wahls Paleo diet, I did also develop a second diet, which I simply call the Wahls diet. That diet allows some gluten-free grains. Both diets promote health, but you’ll get superior health outcomes from the Wahls Paleo version. Certainly, people with MS will be better served the more completely they can observe the Paleo version.
