  • The Healthiest Diet for Weight Control
    We know that vegetarians tend to be slimmer, but there's a perception that veg diets may somehow be deficient in nutrients.

  • PaleoVeganology

    100 posts in the feed.

    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.
