Paleo Diet: What if Omega-3′s Cause Cancer?

Sometimes, it takes what seems to be a really good idea, a long time to proliferate through the paleosphere, and into the mainstream.

Paleo Diet: Fighting Within The Ranks…AGAIN!

I guess it was bound to happen. For a while there, the Paleo community on the whole seemed to get along nicely, like one large reasonably cohesive family…..but now, not so much.
