At Paleo Living, we’re excited about all things Paleo, which is why we’re doubly excited about the Ancestral Health Symposium.
If you don’t already know, the Ancestral Health Symposium is a scientific conference that seeks to address modern health issues from an evolutionary perspective. (In other words, it’s Paleo).
The conference is only a year old, but it’s already considered to be THE Paleo conference. This year’s conference is in Boston, and I personally just arrived to take part, meet and reconnect, and generally have a great time and learn a lot.
I’m not going to be blogging about every talk and every occurrence at AHS, but I am going to keep you up to date with what I feel are the most important events and talks.
There are a lot of exciting talks happening every day, but I am definitely most excited today for Mat Lalonde’s talk on nutrient density. Mat is an organic chemist, and unfortunately for the rest of us, it’s hard to hear him speak very often (and he doesn’t keep a blog). But whenever he does speak, it’s always incredibly insightful and packed with great science.
As if that weren’t enough, Robb Wolf also has a talk later this afternoon about how markets and evolution can revolutionize medicine. If you haven’t listened lately to The Paleo Solution podcast (with Robb Wolf and Greg Everett), then you’re definitely missing out, since Robb and Greg load each session with great info and…um…great humor.
All of that said, I’m sure there will also be many talks that surprise me. I hope you’re excited. I certainly am.
