wow, this article is fantastic. it is mainly about health and traditional diets of indigenous people all over the world; however, it addresses the myth of progress, our perceptions of health, view of history, and cultural and economic priorities. it’s really a big picture article and it’s well-written. it addresses the following:
– was a vegetarian low-fat diet really the norm?
– have people throughout time died of degenerative diseases?
– has technology and progress really made us more healthy?
– what is important to eat?
written by sally falon, a family hero, this article on traditional diets is a bit lengthy but very compelling, from a heath as well as a historical perspective. read it and let me know what you think.
