My compass is not without error. I guess I am guilty at times of a romantic belief about paleo living and eating. But even a stopped clock is correct twice a day and the margin of error would appear to be quite small. Personal results speak volumes.
A few weeks ago I blogged about a story claiming Low Carb Diets Causing Athersclerosis. As I wrote then, this sent my paleo compass a-spinning. Something smelt bad!. Whenever I am faced with such a story I still trust the compass going forwards. But to find the source of the smell you have to go backwards.....following the money.
Thus it is with some comfort that I found this story in yesterday's Guardian:
- Doctors have been agreeing to be named as authors on studies written by employees of the pharmaceutical industry, giving greater credibility to medical research, according to new evidence.
- "The only thing that we have to watch all the time is our relationship with P&G. Because … we have the big Sheffield Centre Grant [from P&G] which is a good source of income, we have got to really watch it." .
