‘Ancestral’ diets like the paleo diet are hugely popular in Australia, but experts from UNSW Sydney and the Australian Museum have questions.
A cursory look at the palaeodiet highlights a wilful ignorance of the science behind human evolution, writes Darren Curnoe.
Passionate about paleo or obsessed with organic? It might be time to reassess how you think about food, writes Rebecca Charlotte Reynolds.
Fad diets led by celebrities with no formal qualifications, often demonstrate a misunderstanding of biochemistry and other basic nutrition science, writes Rebecca Charlotte Reynolds.

The paleo diet is widely different from the food of our ancestors and its range demands scrutiny before it can be recommended for modern life, argues Rosemary Stanton.
