High-fiber, low-fat diets cultivate healthier intestinal microbes, study suggests

From ScienceNews, it seems that the way people ate 10,000 years ago might be healthier than the way we eat in western culture.

Really?!? It's not good for us to eat processed foods and be obese?

Okay, okay, it's not exactly that simple. And because it is not that simple the solution can't be simple. In fact, in one of the closing paragraphs this article suggests the answer will come in pill form.

Are. You. Serious. ?. !. ?. 

Screw nature!

Thank the Pharmaceutical Industry for being such a selfless non-profit to look out for our well being!

Sorry -- just had a cool-aide flashback...

I'm gonna go out on a limb here. How about we all try to eat better? (!?) Eat less of the processed, factory-farmed, genetically-modified, mono-cultured, homogenized, subsidies-based pseudo foods and eat some of what nature produces for no profit?

I know, it's just too radical to ask that we take a step back and consider what got us this far. Who gains from that?

(besides the next generation...)
