• Paleolithic Nutrition: What Did Our Ancestors Eat? — Prof. Jenny Brand-Miller

    Anthropologists and nutritionists have long recognised that the diet of hunter-gatherers represents a reference standard for modern human nutrition. Some scientists argue that their diet and lifestyle provides the ultimate guide to preventing the diseases of affluence such as obesity and type 2 diabetes. Because the hunter-gatherer way of life is now extinct in its purest forms, we must rely on indirect procedures to reconstruct the traditional diet of pre-agricultural humans. Ethnographic “atlases”, for example, comprising studies of hundreds of recent hunter-gatherer populations, have been used as a guide to the pattern of intake of plant foods versus animal foods. Armed with knowledge of the nutrient composition of indigenous or wild foods, we can estimate the intake of proteins, fats a...

    ABSTRACT: Learn about the myth of "the mind-body connection" and how diet can powerfully impact mental health and cognitive performance, including a discussion of strategies for improving memory and cognitive function at any age using "Primal principles" and how to slow (maybe even reverse) the process of brain aging. We'll also address common issues like chronic anxiety, depression and ADD/ADHD, what modern day mechanisms might be at play and how a Primal diet and certain added nutrients can better address mental, emotional and cognitive issues. Few individuals seem to make the connection between physical and mental health. As long as one is able to find one's self above ground in the morning, get up out of bed and power through a work day it is commonly assumed that one is healthy. Being...

These days, our attitudes toward protein vary wildly across cultures, generations, nutritional belief systems, and many other factors. Never before in human history has there been such impassioned and fruitful debate about the relative merits of animal vs. plant proteins, high- vs. low-protein diets, red meat vs. chicken vs. fish vs. tofu … and so much more. Amidst all of this controversy, how can we figure out what is the right type and balance of protein for us as individual eaters? Thankfu...

Anthropologists and nutritionists have long recognised that the diet of hunter-gatherers represents a reference standard for modern human nutrition. Some scientists argue that their diet and lifestyle provides the ultimate guide to preventing the diseases of affluence such as obesity and type 2 diabetes. Because the hunter-gatherer way of life is now extinct in its purest forms, we must rely on indirect procedures to reconstruct the traditional diet of pre-agricultural humans. Ethnographic “atlases”, for example, comprising studies of hundreds of recent hunter-gatherer populations, have been used as a guide to the pattern of intake of plant foods versus animal foods. Armed with knowledge of the nutrient composition of indigenous or wild foods, we can estimate the intake of proteins, fats and carbohydrates and of micronutrients such as iron and calcium. These analyses indicate that whenever and wherever it was ecologically possible, hunter-gatherers consumed high amounts (45–65% of energy) of animal food. Indeed, the majority of hunter-gatherer societies derived at least 50% of their subsistence from animal foods, whereas only a small fraction derived a large proportion from gathered plant foods. Unlike today, the seeds of the cultivated grasses (cereals) did not play a major role in hunter-gatherer diets. There is growing awareness that the profound changes in diet and lifestyle that began with the introduction of agriculture and animal husbandry 10,000 years ago occurred too recently in an evolutionary sense for the human genome to adjust. The evolutionary ‘collision’ of our ancient genome with the nutritional qualities of recently introduced foods (cereals, dairy products, refined sugars and oils) may underlie many of the diseases of Western civilization. In particular, food staples and food-processing procedures developed during the agricultural and industrial revolutions have fundamentally altered many nutritional characteristics. While adopting a Paleolithic diet may be no longer possible or practical, there are fundamental properties that can easily be accommodated in today’s diets. Professor Jennie Brand-Miller holds a Personal Chair in Human Nutrition in the Human Nutrition Unit, School of Molecular and Microbial Biosciences at the University of Sydney in Sydney, Australia. She is recognised for her work on carbohydrates and diabetes, particularly the glycemic index of foods. She received the 2003 Clunies Ross Medal for contributions to science and technology in Australia and the 2004 Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology Award of Merit. Her books under the series title The New Glucose Revolution have sold over 3.5 million copies world wide and appeared in 12 languages. She has analysed and compiled tables of composition of over 800 Australian Aboriginal bush foods - the largest wild food database in the world - and has a strong interest in the diet of our ancestors – ‘paleolithic nutrition’. She is the immediate-past President of the Nutrition Society of Australia, Chair of the Nutrition Committee of the Australian Academy of Science, the Director of Sydney University Glycemic Index Research Service (SUGiRS, a GI testing service for the food industry) and is Chair of the Board of Directors of a non-profit company (Glycemic Index Limited), which administers a food symbol program for consumers in collaboration with Diabetes Australia and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Jennie is the proud recipient of two Nucleus® bionic ears. She has taught nutrition at graduate and undergraduate levels for 30 years. This talk was given at ISS2009: Genes to Galaxies, the 35th Professor Harry Messel International Science School, held at the University of Sydney in July 2009.

One in five children and one in four adults have mental disorders. Restoring historically normal intakes of omega-3 fatty acids can improve disruptive child behavioral problems including ADHD, by 40%, potentially reducing risk for a lifetime trajectory of disruptive behaviors. Dr. Hibbeln's observation that the nutritional benefits of eating fish in pregnancy on higher IQ outweigh the small effect of trace mercury, is cited as foundational by The Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010, the World Health Organization and the FDA. Dr. Hibbeln originated the field of omega-3 fats in depressive disorders and is currently assessing the efficacy of omega-3 fats for reducing suicidal behaviors among US Veterans as the Co-PI of the BRAVO (Better Resilience Among Veterans on Omega-3's) study. Brain critical nutrients for US military personnel may reduce the burden of mental health and substance abuse problems and increase their reliance to stress. Current diets of our poorest citizens may be especially impoverished in critical brain nutrients and impairing full utilization of educational and social opportunities. CAPT Joseph R. Hibbeln, M.D. is the Acting Chief, Section of Nutritional Neurosciences Laboratory of Membrane Biophysics and Biochemistry, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, NIH, Bethesda, Maryland. He is physician, board-certified in Psychiatry and Neurology, a lipid biochemist, a nutritional epidemiologist, and he serves as a Captain in the United States Public Health Service (USPHS). Dr. Hibbeln has authored more than 120 peer reviewed scientific articles. Dr. Hibbeln is internationally recognized as originating the field of omega-3 fatty acids in depression and impulsive disorders. His active contributions toward understanding nutrition in mental health include being the Co-PI of the BRAVO study which is assessing efficacy of omega-3 fats in reducing risk of suicidal behaviors among US Veterans. He examines if nutrients essential to fundamental brain function can improve child neurodevelopment and reduce risk for aggression, addictive disorders and suicide. He seeks to determine if resuming historically normal intakes of essential fats might substantially reduce emotional distress in modern societies.

Humans are unique in many ways. Anthropologist Alyssa Crittenden believes that it is the evolutionary links between nutrition, reproduction, and our amazing capacity for cooperation that truly make us human. Here, she chronicles her time living among one of the world's few remaining hunting and gathering populations, the Hadza of Tanzania, exploring the intersection of diet and childrearing. Alyssa Crittenden is an anthropologist and is currently the Lincy Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In order to answer some of the burning questions about what makes the human species unique, she studies the links between nutrition, growth and development, family formation, and child rearing in small-scale societies. For over ten years, she has worked among the Hadza foragers of Tanzania, researching topics such as diet composition, the gut microbiome, women's reproduction, childhood, and parenting strategies among hunters and gatherers. A strong advocate for science education for the public, she has appeared on National Public Radio, television programs, and documentaries and gives talks to museums and middle school and high school science students. Her work is published in top-tier academic journals and has been highlighted in popular outlets, such as The Smithsonian, National Geographic, the BBC, and Psychology Today. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

ABSTRACT: Learn about the myth of "the mind-body connection" and how diet can powerfully impact mental health and cognitive performance, including a discussion of strategies for improving memory and cognitive function at any age using "Primal principles" and how to slow (maybe even reverse) the process of brain aging. We'll also address common issues like chronic anxiety, depression and ADD/ADHD, what modern day mechanisms might be at play and how a Primal diet and certain added nutrients can better address mental, emotional and cognitive issues. Few individuals seem to make the connection between physical and mental health. As long as one is able to find one's self above ground in the morning, get up out of bed and power through a work day it is commonly assumed that one is healthy. Being thin and active in most people's minds is tantamount to good health (or just not being "sick"), even while the same person may also suffer anxiety related issues, depression or have trouble mentally focusing at work or at school. We all see the world through the lens that is our blood sugar (the extent to which one might be dependent on this), our hormones and neurotransmitters and yet forget that it is our diets that must entirely supply the raw nutrients needed for these critically influential physiological catalysts. Mental health issues and cognitive challenges are nearly ubiquitous today. According to the work of respected nutritional pioneers such as Weston Price these same mental and brain health issues were nearly unheard of in many primitive and traditional societies consuming a diet consistent with that of our more distant evolutionary ancestors. Modern research findings offer added understanding and a new layer to ancestral dietary principles that can lead us toward the promise of optimal brain functioning, emotional liberation and the cultivation of a potentially ageless mind. By applying many of these "Paleo" principles today and modifying them to our more modern circumstances we can re-cultivate and improve upon the healthy Primal Mind that is our birthright and the key to our future as a species.

This animation—produced by Global Health Media Project in collaboration with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, UNICEF, and Yoni Goodman—brings to life key messages that help people see and understand how Ebola spreads and how to protect themselves and their communities. Download link: http://globalhealthmedia.org/videos/ The animated story is told by a young girl whose grandfather dies from Ebola and puts the rest of her family at risk. It brings to life the many messages that are so crucial in understanding this disease on a community level. The film makes visible the invisible Ebola germs to help people see and understand how Ebola spreads and how to protect themselves. Critical messages are woven through the story so that people better understand Ebola, see themselves within the context of an outbreak, and see how to act in ways that can keep themselves safe from the disease and protect their communities. Although the situation in West Africa has improved dramatically, the Ebola crisis is still not over. This film is intended to be part of ongoing educational and awareness efforts in that region that are critical in eradicating this disease.

Social protection can trigger immense and variegated positive effects in the area of food and nutrition security! Social security schemes are a fundamental building block of most western societies―from a human and societal point of view as well as economically―and so they should be in developing countries. This film argues emphatically that any country in the world has enough resources available to provide basic social security to its people. Development cooperation should support these endeavours. Specialist will find information on different approaches. The film compiles voices from the field in Ethiopia, Cambodia and Malawi.

(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Marion Nestle, Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition at New York University. Professor Nestle reflects on the evolution of her thinking on the interplay between nutrition studies and the politics of food. She discusses the environment of the food industry producing in a highly competitive environment where profits are paramount and public health is not a priority. Advertising and lobbying are important tools at their service as they confront food activists focused on public health, environment, and social justice. Professor Nestle also analyzes the role of government in choosing between re-enforcing the status quo or changing the landscape of food production through funding, regulation, and education. Finally, she offers advice to students preparing for the future. Recorded on 03/22/2017. Series: "Conversations with History" [5/2017] [Show ID: 32225]

Read the full transcript here: http://psychologyofeating.com/the-nutritional-psychology-of-protein-video-marc Our views on the role of protein in a healthy diet have changed dramatically since the days of hunter-gatherers working together to trap large mammals so that human communities could survive. These days, our attitudes toward protein vary wildly across cultures, generations, nutritional belief systems, and many other factors. Never before in human history has there been such impassioned and fruitful debate about the relative merits of animal vs. plant proteins, high- vs. low-protein diets, red meat vs. chicken vs. fish vs. tofu … and so much more. Amidst all of this controversy, how can we figure out what is the right type and balance of protein for us as individual eaters? Thankfully, we all have access to the ancient wisdom of our own bodies and the insights that can be gained when we approach our diets with a spirit of exploration. In this refreshing new video from #IPEtv, Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, shares some great insights from the field of eating psychology that can help us make peace with protein. Want a sneak peek? Read part of the transcript below: Greetings friends, this is Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. Today’s Topic: The Nutritional Psychology of Protein What does that even mean? The Nutritional Psychology of Protein? I’m going to discuss and explore the different ways that the human mind thinks about protein. Meaning, what does it represent to people, what is the symbolism, the underlying beliefs, and the hidden associations that we make. In addition, I’m going to give you some ideas of the nutritional energetics of protein – meaning how this macronutrient impacts us on the level of energy psychology. So here goes: If you look around at the nutrition landscape, there are lots of systems that are high protein. There are all kinds of beliefs about how much protein people need for health – what percentage of the diet, or how many grams per body weight. Lots of wonderful controversy exists about protein, as some experts say that we need animal protein, other experts champion vegetarian sources of protein, while other scientists say that protein is protein and it doesn’t matter where it comes from. People can become extremely passionate about the topic of protein needs. It’s a topic in the nutrition world that creates some fantastic differences in opinions. What I would like to suggest is that the way we see protein, and what we believe about it, is closely tied in to how we see the world, and see life. First, on a level of nutritional energetics: Protein creates a sense of grounding. It roots us. It makes us more earthy, earthbound, dense, protected, secure, strong, and even confident. Protein is the very substance of our muscle. And it is our musculature that indeed is our armor, our protection, and our strength in the world. Many people, whether they realize it or not, make the unconscious association between protein in our food, and muscle on the body. Often times, for this symbolic reason, protein is associated with men, with the masculine polarity in us, with our desire for more power and strength. Protein is for the strong. Protein is for helping us survive on a tough planet. In evolutionary history, for our early hunter-gatherers, their main source of protein was animals. Hunting. Stalking. Killing. Working collectively to capture animals. Protein, for this reason, has a very ancient and primal meaning in our genetic and cellular memory. Protein meant we were successful hunters. The best at physical feats. In this regard, think of all the protein products aimed at weight lifters and athletes. Now contrast this to our development into more agrarian and farming societies. When protein sources started including plants, there’s a more gentle nature to tilling the land. It requires more time. More forethought. More planning. More nuances in terms of working with the sun, seasons, water, fertilizer, harvesting, preparing, and so much more. So, for the vegetarian mindset, protein from vegetable sources is more humane. It’s more thoughtful. It’s less aggressive. It’s seen as cleaner. As more gentle. More considerate. That’s why energetically, animal sources of protein will literally contain the archetypal energies of that animal. And it’s also why energetically, vegetarian sources of protein will literally contain the archetypal energies of those plants.
