  • Add Beans, Berries, and Greens to More Meals
    After we eat, our bodies create free radicals in the process of breaking down our food. That's why we need to eat antioxidant-rich foods with every meal to counteract this oxidation caused by metabolism. We can't just have berries on our oatmeal in the morning to meet our Minimum Recommended Daily Allowance of Antioxidants and […] (...more)

  • Dr. Greger Addresses Saturated Fat Confusion in New DVD
    Considering concerns over saturated fat to be the #1 threat to their growth, the global dairy industry launched a covert campaign to “neutralize the negative image of milkfat among regulators and health professionals.” This would be no small task, as leading health authorities around the world encourage the public to decrease saturated fat consumption (...more)

    This blog focuses "on issues related to both veganism and paleontology, my two biggest passions; I live by one and am working towards a master's degree in the other. It may seem a strange combination, but hopefully you'll come to see otherwise by reading this humble blog. In my mind, both subjects converge in their connection to issues of climate change, evolution, human health, and H. sapiens' impact and place in the web of life. I think you'll find that using those two concepts -- veganism and paleontology -- as lenses can be the key to a wide range of interesting and vitally important subjects; hence, the title of this blog.
