In a fiery Facebook post addressed to her 1.3 million followers, Ms Itsines said she was pursuing court action because of 'false claims that my partner takes steroids, claims I'm starving myself or other people, claims that I promote anorexia, for abusing the respect of my followers, my family and myself, claims I am starving people, claims I am a fraud.'

Yes alcohol may be paleo, but it isn't good for you.
I did my red wine experiments, came to the conclusion it is not good for me.

I was hoping we all find a way to be 120 years old and yet look like 50 year olds.

Their longevity is due, in large part, to their seafood-rich diet, no doubt.
Japanese people are known to mostly prefer eating their  seafood raw.

Primal Diet / Re: Are you sure that dairy isn't paleo?

Back in the early days of warnings against cows milk (in the last half of the twentieth century), the bone health of milk drinkers was compared to the bone health of cultures that do not drink milk. In examining the diet of the non-milk drinkers, calcium was found to be supplied by vegetables and seeds. Despite the fact that a milk-drinkers diet has an abundance of calcium, bone health is better is populations who get less calcium from plant sources.

Bottom line: if you avoid the unbalanced calcium in milk, bone health is easier to maintain with less daily calcium.

Some say that over-abundant minerals in whole foods don't cause harm; they exit the body naturally. Only the manufactured supplements cause harm. What do you think?

I think it depends on

1. If you have enough of the co-factors (in the case of calcium, vitamins D and K)

2. Your genetics

the rawness and unprocessed-ness is a factor, but certainly not the only one.

There are really 4 problems with milk-drinking in adult humans.

1. Too much calcium without enough magnesium. Calcium without magnesium scars the arteries and promotes heart disease.

2. Too much phosphorus, which makes the calcium hard to absorb, and therefore promotes bone weakness and osteoporosis. I didn't know this until today, although it's a minor point.
