Paleo diet -- can going caveman cure current-day ills?


The paleo diet is one of the more popular current diets -- based on a theory that modern day man would be healthier if he or she ate more like a caveman. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show “Take Care,” hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Sarah Ballantyne, scientist turned paleo activist and author. Balantyne discusses the theories behind the diet and some of the new research into possible benefits.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday morning at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m.  Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
