Nutrition and health in agriculturalists and hunter-gatherers | The Blog of Michael R. ... - 0 views

  •  
    When I wrote the Overcoming the Curse of the Mummies chapter in Protein Power, I wrote mainly about the evidence of disease found in the mummies of ancient Egyptians and correlated this disease with their high-carbohydrate diet. Along with all the material on mummies, which is the part everyone seems to remember, I wrote about a study done in the United States in the 1970s that persuasively demonstrated the superiority of the hunter diet as compared to an agricultural diet, which no one seems to remember. I came across that study a couple of days ago and decided to present it in a little more detail than I was able to in Protein Power.

    The anthropological record of early man clearly shows health took a nosedive when populations made the switch from hunting and gathering to agriculture. It takes a physical anthropologist about two seconds to look at a skeleton unearthed from an archeological site to tell if the owner of that skeleton was a hunter-gatherer or an agriculturist.

White Europeans evolved only '5,500 years ago' - Times Online - 0 views

  •  
    White Europeans could have evolved as recently as 5,500 years ago, according to research which suggests that the early humans who populated Britain and Scandinavia had dark skins for millenniums.

    It was only when early humans gave up hunter-gathering and switched to farming about 5,500 years ago that white skin began to be favoured, say the researchers.

    This is because farmed food was deficient in vitamin D, a vital nutrient. Humans can make this in their skin when exposed to sunlight, but dark skin is much less efficient at it.

Eight Health Benefits of Stinging Nettle - 0 views

  •  
    Once I was listening the health benefits of herbs on the radio, a specialist on the herbs said that stinging nettle was one of the most effective and beneficial herbs for our health. He said that if people was aware of the benefits of nettle and how curative it was, they cultivated nothing but nettle. This allegation may seem a little bit unrealitic or pretentious, however it has many great benefits indeed.

10 Great Benefits of Drinking Green Tea - 0 views

  •  
    I've researched and discovered some sources about losing weight, diets and obesity. I used many medicines which are completely made up of chemicals. At the end, I turned back to the traditional treatment since I thought that those chemicals damage my liver. During my researches I discovered the benefits of green tea. Please do not confuse green tea with black tea which everyone drinks daily.
