I recently got my hands on Dr. Paul Saladino's new book "The Carnivore Code". 

Now, if you don't know who Paul is, then you must listen to my previous episodes with him, including:

Since I've interviewed Paul, he has published this new book, and after reading it, I had plenty of tough questions for him, including:

 

 

 

-How do we *know* the reason our stomachs became 1000x more acidic than a chimp is because of animal food consumption?
 
 
 
-Is the decline in height and health fully attributable to plant/agriculture, or could it be due to industrialization, crowded cities, etc?
 
 
 
-Why do you say present hunter gatherers no longer have access to large game? 
 
 
 
-You say herbivores can detoxify plant toxins, but we can't. How do they do it?
 
 
 
-All the isothiocyanate studies are in vivo for human cells. How positive are you the results are replicated in vitro?
 
 
 
-You say hypothyroidism/crucifer intake is *reported* in Western culture. What's that mean, exactly? Anecdotes?
 
 
 
-When you list the "Bad News Gang", like cigarettes, alcohol, etc. couldn't you just as easily lump exercise, cold, heat, sunlight, etc. in with factors that turn on NRF2? If so, how do you personally describe your differentiation between good vs. bad NRF2 activators?
 
 
 
-The studies showing value for elimination of fruit/vegetable consumption are pretty short (10-12 weeks). Any longer term studies? And did these studies factor in how the produce was being prepared (e.g. presence of oils, organic vs. inorganic, etc.)?
 
 
 
-When you say high intake of isoflavones causes endocrine disruption, how much is high? Same thing with Chaga for liver cancer (pg 81). Isn't that a shit-ton of chaga?
 
 
 
-If polyphenols reduce intestinal enzyme production, couldn't other plant compounds, such as bitters/herbs/spices, along with adequate chewing, combat that by increasing enzyme production?
 
 
 
-You say resveratrol has repeatedly shown lack of value in human studies, but what about Sinclair's research? Hasn't he shown the opposite?
 
 
 
-I found it fascinating the claim that plant-based eaters still "crave" or are attracted to meat, but how is an ERP measured exactly?
 
 
 
-You say that carbohydrates that accompany plant fiber can spike insulin. That's painting with a pretty broad brush, isn't it? I think the lion's share of plants don't result in an appreciable insulin spike, do they?
 
 
 
-You say meat is not associated with cancer, but what about if active tumor growth already exists? Would you change anything if you had cancer?
 
 
 
-The study on telomere length being increased only by red meat was an observational study on 28 people. Any other studies looking directly at telomere or Horvath clock responses to plant vs. animal intake that are larger, more robust or non-observational?
 
 
 
-You say that fruits are seeds coated in natural candy, but can't we eat the fruit flesh and "leave the seeds behind?"
 
 
 
-What do you say about all the studies showing reduced risk of liver cancer, diabetes, etc. amongst regular coffee drinkers?
 
 
 
-You say unrendered fat is your preference. Any studies on rendered vs. unrendered fat health, nutrient quality, etc?
 
 
 
-You say oleosins from coconut/olive oil may cause a strong allergic reaction. How conclusive is that?
 
 
 
Whew! You'd think after all these questions, Paul would let me know I'm being a total pain in the butt, but instead, he graciously offered to do a solosode answering all these questions and highlighting many other up-to-date details on the carnivore diet.
 
 
 

In Paul's solosode, you'll discover:
