What's In the Water?, Yael Grauer
What's In the Water?
Yael Grauer  |  September 23 2010  |  Nutrition
Even if your water supply is amongst the cleanest in the country, it could still be harmful for your health. Yes, you read write. Even if your water source continually meets or exceeds the requirements for both federal regulations and non-enforcable health standards, it could still be filled with prescription drugs and other contaminants. How do water suppliers get away with this? Because many chemical contaminants found in the drinking water are entirely unregulated. “It is certainly p......

The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf: Book Excerpt
Robb Wolf  |  September 12 2010  |  Nutrition
Our good friend Robb Wolf has been kind enough to allow us to run an excerpt from his new book, The Paleo Solution. This book is a story about us. You know, H. Sapiens. It’s also a story of how to optimize our performance, health, and longevity. While combining such monumental plot lines might lead you to believe this is one of those family saga novels that jumps all over in time, don’t worry. This story both starts and ends in the past. However, in order to fully appreciate this st......
The Acid-Alkaline Question, Yael Grauer
The Acid-Alkaline Question
Yael Grauer  |  April 30 2010  |  Nutrition
When I was still in high school, I found myself cooking food at a really bizarre dinner party. One of my friends happened to be renting a room from a macrobiotic guru in town, and all of the macroneurotics (as they called themselves) would show up to cook and eat strange rice variations and weird vegetables. The first thing I remember is getting yelled at for rinsing veggies in warm water. "This is supposed to be a raw salad," someone scolded, "and you're cooking it." I also ......

The Protein Debate: Dr. Loren Cordain & T. Colin Campbell
Loren Cordain  |  March 19 2008  |  Nutrition
Introduction Protein plays a litany of roles in living systems: structural elements, peptide hormones, cell recognition, antibodies… the list is staggering and continues to grow as our understanding of biology expands. What, however, is the role of dietary protein in health and disease in humans? Is the source, type and quantity intimately and directly tied to optimal physical development and continued wellbeing? Is it causative or preventative of disease? How do we know, and how can w......
Dietary Cure for Acne: Interview with Dr. Loren Cordain, Robb Wolf
Dietary Cure for Acne: Interview with Dr. Loren Cordain
Robb Wolf  |  May 5 2006  |  Nutrition
In this months Performance Menu we have a brief interview with Prof. Loren Cordain regarding his new E-book The Dietary Cure for Acne: http://www.dietaryacnecure.com/. (we managed to pester him with a few other questions as well). Professor Cordain, please tell our readers about your new E-book, The Dietary Cure for Acne. How is this information different than the information one might get from the dermatologist? Although the medical and dermatology communities generally have gone on ......
Diet and Stature, Robb Wolf
Diet and Stature
Robb Wolf  |  April 28 2006  |  Nutrition
Nicki and I were shopping in Trader Joe’s the other night and the woman ahead of us was having an interesting conversation with the cashier. She was buying a whole slew of soy products and the cashier said he just read a news piece about the possible health downsides of soy. The woman (about 5’ tall) said she was from Japan and that soy products had been part of the diet for thousands of years and if there was a problem with soy she would have heard about it by now. I chimed in that ......
Skin Condition as Indicator of Health, Robb Wolf
Skin Condition as Indicator of Health
Robb Wolf  |  April 25 2006  |  Nutrition
Art Devany has made the point for years that aesthetics are key indicators of health status and have potent evolutionary underpinnings. Here is a classic example of this concept with regards to the skin condition vitiligo. For those unfamiliar with the condition, vitiligo is a loss of pigmentation in sections of the skin.  This first paper points to vitiligo occurring amidst several other autoimmune conditions: 1: Indian J Dermatol Venereol Lep......
Dr. Who?, Robb Wolf
Dr. Who?
Robb Wolf  |  April 19 2006  |  Nutrition
Today lets have a little fun and see who can figure out a few mysteries. The questions that need to be answered will be a “who” and a “why”. Here is the background:  One of my clients was formerly under the care of a fairly well known physician (this is the “WHO” question). Now here are some clues about who this Dr. is: he/she is diametrically opposed to the Paleo Diet, he/she windsurfs a bunch and he/she recommends virtually an ALL STARCH DIET. That sho......
Antioxidant Megadoses, Robb Wolf
Antioxidant Megadoses
Robb Wolf  |  April 18 2006  |  Nutrition
This is a fascinating article that throws a paradoxical spin on one of the main suspects in the ageing process, namely oxidative damage. It is fairly clear that consumption of a broad spectrum of antioxidants offers important health benefits (frequently these antioxidants offer benefits beyond their ability to mitigate free radical damage) however mega dosing may be ill advised. Not only can a very large dose of a given antioxidant pose a risk as a pro-oxidant, high levels of antioxidants may su......
We Need More on Ketosis, Robb Wolf
We Need More on Ketosis
Robb Wolf  |  March 27 2006  |  Nutrition
The topic of Intermittent Fasting (IF) has drawn a fair amount of attention from the research community in the past few years. There are a few primate studies underway that should shed some light on how critters much more genetically similar to us respond to IF. Everyone is looking for a key enzyme or cellular receptor to make a drug that can do the same thing as IF or Caloric Restriction with Adequate Nutrition (CRAN). Ironically that drug may be swirling at the bottom of wine glasses the worl......
