Not Everyone Sings Its Praises

While this diet is extremely popular, not everyone loves it. A recent Mother Jones article points out that it’s not really known if this is the way that cavemen ate and that eating grains really isn’t that bad for you. A 2013 article in the Scientific American states that this diet is “nonsensical and sometimes dangerously restrictive.”
