Why Meat is Good for Us with Dr. Paul Saladino — WildFed Podcast #094
Listen now
Today we're talking to Paul Saladino — the Carnivore MD — one of the most vocal proponents of the very in-vogue carnivore diet. Now, if you listen to this show, it’s no mystery that we at WildFed are as much plant people as we are hunters. We believe in both hunting and gathering, as well as the long tradition of human omnivory. So, you won’t hear of us giving up plants anytime soon. However, we appreciate Paul’s perspective and the work he’s done to combat the anti-meat sentiment — you could almost say “propaganda” — that has become so commonplace in the last decade or so. In this conversation, we discuss meat and why it's so much more than just protein, Paul’s time with the Hadza in Tanzania and what he learned about their dietary preferences, and the politics of censorship and medical freedom. This is a really useful discussion, especially in a time when our fundamental, biologically appropriate foods are under constant attack by a well-intentioned, and sometimes not-so-well-intentioned, media and medical institution. Paul is a radical. He’s a rebel. He’s a pioneer, and he’s fearlessly sharing a message that deserves to be heard. We don’t agree with all of his conclusions, but we certainly appreciate what he has to say, and we hope you do too.
