Thank you to all readers who have helped out on the Q&A thread! I have been exceedingly busy and am still behind on some important obligations, so it is difficult to find time to answer questions. But I do intend to respond to everyone’s questions. I’m grateful to those readers who are sharing their knowledge to help others.
 Paleo Summit starts tonight:
Sean Croxton’s Paleo Summit begins at midnight tonight with presentations by Mark Sisson and Diane Sanfilippo. Presentations are free for 24 hours, when a new set of presentations appears. The summit will continue until interviews with 23 speakers, including myself, have appeared.

 Raw Milk Debate: I was privileged to attend a recent debate over raw milk at Harvard Law School (site of the upcoming Ancestral Health Symposium), featuring Sally Fallon Morell of the Weston A Price Foundation and three others, two on each side. All of the panelists were great and the debate was excellent. And it’s available on video:

How nice is that?”

In a post relevant to my conversation with the Peat-atarians, Stephan Guyenet asks whether fructose sugar can cause obesity. His answer:
[H]igh-sugar diets don’t necessarily produce body fat accumulation in humans, and they can even allow body fat loss under some circumstances, but are there situations where sugar can cause fat accumulation? The answer is an emphatic yes….
[E]xcessive consumption of refined sugar can promote elements of the metabolic syndrome, and this is due specifically to its fructose content.
Fortunately, Stephan projects that US sugar consumption won’t reach 100% of calories until 2606.
