Ancestral Health Symposium on Starches in our diet

Safe Starches:  Are they Essential to an Ancestral Diet?

In his book The Perfect Health Diet, Paul Jaminet puts forth a controversial concept known as “safe starches,” including white rice, white potatoes, yams and more. He’s referring to the lack of toxicity that comes from consuming them within the context of ancestral nutrition. But not everyone agrees these “safe starches” are completely harmless to the people who consume them. We’ll explore the potential dangers that these “safe starches” can cause in some people and attempt to come to a consensus about one of the most important topics of discussion over the past year. This panel of prestigious experts includes Jaminet along with three medical doctors who will discuss and debate this idea as an extension of the conversation that first began at Jimmy Moore’s “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” blog in a post entitled “Is There Any Such Thing As ‘Safe Starches’ On A Low-Carb Diet?” on October 6, 2011.
