In this episode Saifedean talks to Paul Saladino MD about meat eating and his book The Carnivore Code. They begin by discussing how transitioning from a vegan to a carnivore diet helped Paul to cure his eczema and why he now recommends others do the same. They cover why toxins are present in many commonly-eaten plants, what Paul learnt from studying the eating habits of the Hazda tribe, and whether fruit and honey have a place in a predominantly meat-based diet. They end by talking about the limits of methods used by researchers to come to conclusions about diet and why epidemiology represents a poor way of forming reliable conclusions about cause and effect.Related links:The Carnivore Code on AmazonPaper introducing the Expensive Tissue Hypothesis written by Leslie Aiello and Peter WheelerThe Social Leap: The New Evolutionary Science of Who We Are, Where We Come From, and What Makes Us HappyWikipedia page on Peters’s elephantnose fishWikipedia page on the psychology of eating meatPaul hanging out with the Hadza tribeWeston Price’s book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration: A Comparison of Primitive and Modern Diets and Their EffectsEnjoyed this episode?
