Primal Wisdom Goes Off The Rails

According to Don's analysis, mother's milk is a solid.

Stephan Guyenet posts a comment, and I posted this comment:

"Don, this is not a compelling argument.

You cite a couple of studies, and yet the guy who's spent the last 30+ years studying saturated fat and heart disease has thrown in the towel and declared:

"...there no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD or CVD."

That link is to Stephan's blog. How do you reconcile that statement and the evidence behind it with your belief?

Chris Masterjohn also posted a compelling comment on this post (in three parts).

P.S. The post referenced above has been deleted:

"Sorry, the page you were looking for in the blog Primal Wisdom does not exist."

This is probably a good thing.

P.P.S. Don's got a new post up, where he seems to be presenting the evidence to explain his thinking behind the previous deleted post. Interesting stuff.

I still don't agree with his premise, as the commenters note, there's plenty of evidence that humans in paleolithic Africa were causing extinctions as they hunted and ate fatty animals.
