I absolutely love learning about tribes who live out in the wilderness, away from technology, surviving through farming and foraging. It's fascinating to understand their ways of life, particularly when it comes to their diet and their susceptibility to disease, or not as it may be. So when this tweet by Manvir Singh, research fellow at Harvard, popped up on my feed I was engrossed. Great thread Manvir.
Government departments (like @USDA & @DHSCgovuk) frequently publish dietary guidelines. But looking at hunter-gatherers & forager-farmers, I'm struck by how many violate Western guidelines yet have healthier hearts & much less chronic illness.— manvir singh (@mnvrsngh) May 3, 2022
