    Greetings from Modesto! It’s nice to hear that you’ll be headed our way soon.
    Great podcast today, super interesting! I already bought Dr. Perlmutter’s book and look forward to reading it. It’s exciting to see Paleo principles coming together with more and more science behind it. Tipping point, here we come!
    PS to Jason: you KNOW it’s not just your mom listening…my mom does too. (She’s friends with your mom from when she lived in Modesto. :))

    I am a department of defense Physician assistant in family practice (primary care provider) and a crossiftter and paleo girl! I have been coaching on exercising and eliminating glutens from the diet for years! It is so nice to hear more mainstream commentary re: the evils of glutens/wheat and gut health and reducing pro-inflammatory foods in our diet!! It is hard to be a medical provider working for the government when the problem is truly from the top down in this country! But (most:)) of my patients appreciate independent thinking and the reluctance to simply prescribe to medicate their lifestyle, rather than changing their lifestyle to avoid medicating! I have had many success stories in the past few years since urging a paleo lifestyle from nearly eliminating symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis in a 60 year old woman who had a severe reaction to methotrexate which she was prescribed by her rheumatologist, to just about “curing” ‘fibromyalgia’ (I personally HATE that diagnosis!) in a 24 year old woman who was debilitated with body aches and pains, and since eliminating grains, feels freakin’ FANTASTIC!! I’m so happy there are more and more sites that support good nutrition and exercise as the way to positively affect change and reverse inflammatory conditions! I see it in my clinic daily…and I’ll keep fighting the good fight, even under the watchful eye of the doD!!

    After listening to this podcast it strikes me that the views presented on paleolithic diets in regards to fruit are very temperate centric. What would Dr. Perlmutter have to say about tropical cultures and their ability to process excess sugars from fruits? There are also cultures that subsisted on a majority of carbohydrates. For example, the Kitavans in Melanesia, the Kuna indians in Panama and the Okinawans of Japan. Interviews with people from these cultures about their diet can be found here:
