Ron Rosedale, M.D. presenting at the 2nd Annual Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS12) on Saturday, 11 August, 2012.
Ancestral science includes paleoanthropology and precedes it by billions of years, and we must not be blind to this. Thus, we need to include science as it pertains to our ancestor's ancestors such as the biology of aging, for paleolithic nutrition to be viewed in the proper context.
For instance, evolution does not select for a long post-reproductive life but rather for reproductive success, and modern people may be the only species ever to seek a long post-reproductive lifespan. Furthermore, we have all been raised and live in a modern society that can lead to the accumulation of damage and disease since even before birth. Therefore, in order to find answers about what best to eat now, we may need to modify a paleo diet to include what the modern science of the ancient biology of aging tells us about what to eat today, for a healthier and longer life tomorrow.
I will talk about some of the key points of this science that are common to all animal life, and that lay the foundation for optimal dietary intake as it pertains to nutrition, disease, and extending the current boundaries of youthful longevity.
Ron Rosedale M.D. is an internationally known expert in nutrition, aging, and metabolic medicine. His now famous lectures on insulin nearly 20 years ago foretold of its importance to the chronic diseases and aging. He has done the same for the hormone leptin with his book “The Rosedale Diet”.
