The following offers an additional point that can be added under the previous blog title of "Got A Real Doctor":
that "Doctors Don't Know Diets" a point which is very well stated by Jon Barron in his article (linked below).
I just posted this comment at Jon's site.:
The main cautionary regarding following a medical doctors dietary advice is a first step (and this article certainly displays why). Further steps need to be taken for an individual to be more fully informed regarding their best dietary choices.
Interesting to hear that there are versions of the "Mediterranean Diet". It seems (with a few exceptions) that Jon's version could possibly be likened to the dietary fundamentals presented in "Nourishing Traditions" (which he makes no mention of at all in this article). One exception is the recommended "Low consumption of unfermented soy products such as tofu and soy milk". [May 13th - In reviewing what I wrote here I don't think the Mediterranean peoples included soy products in their local diets!] More information is needed to substantiate a few more of his recommendations such as the notion that "Whey is ... extremely high in allergens". That idea deserves a complete article fully discussing this as well as the recommended "Low consumption of organic, raw dairy products".
I suppose that my weekly consumption of four gallons of raw goat milk clabber would not be considered "low consumption" and yet I have never felt more well-nourished and physically comfortable than ever before!
Diet is firstly an individual matter. There is no universal diet. [Neither is there a universal "Mediterranean Diet" or only two or three versions of that.] The idea of such is not supported by traditional wisdom. I'm glad that Jon's diet works for him however it can not be expected to work for everyone. It is not a diet I would necessarily recommend.
The most well-documented dietary findings for a wide variety of truly healthy peoples remains to be "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" by Weston A. Price. Why is that book not referenced here?
