The Paleodiet (Neolithic Diet) has become popular. Its assumption is that humans evolved without consuming grains; and that rather than fight our evolution by eating grain based foods we should avoid them. However, Dr. Marlene Zuk has written a book, Paleofantasies that shows grains have been a major part of human diets for a very long time. Dr. Zuk is interviewed on Groks Science Radio Show and Podcast.
