After spending time among a tribal people, one professor made a surprising announcement.
Well, it will be surprising to those who never step foot outside of a city.
Readers of our site, however, might be nodding in agreement.
Sticking to a hunter-gatherer style diet of seasonal vegetables and wild game can do wonders for your health, a leading professor claims.
A diet of wild tubers and porcupine steak helps to replenish our gut bacteria, which in turns staves off diabetes and asthma, he says.
Professor Tim Spector, from King’s College London, has called for westerners to adopt a more traditional diet after spending three days eating with tribes people in Tanzania.
The indigenous group, known as The Hadza, live in the Savannah, foraging for vegetables and hunting game.
Professor Spector discovered that the tribe have some of the healthiest guts in the world as their diets enable them to grow a diverse range of digestive bacteria.Read More
…Professor Spector spent three days eating the same food as The Hadza and said he was surprised by the immediate health benefits.
…The foods help to promote a more diverse microbiome, which can help to reduce the risk of ‘almost every western ailment’, according to Professor Spector.
Professor Spector analysed his stool samples after spending three days eating The Hadza diet.
He found that sticking to a prehistoric diet allowed him to gain 20 per cent more types of microbe in his gut. — Read More

What’s his advice? Don’t worry so much about sterilization.
‘Maybe we should occasionally go back to our roots – re-wild ourselves, go camping with the kids and get dirty,’ he said.
It’s hard to get any disagreement with that last point here.
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
In his killer new book RISE, KILL & EAT: A Theology of Hunting From Genesis to Revelation Doug carries on with his courageous war against the lunatic fringe who dare recommend Bambi solutions to the annual production of edible wildlife. –Ted Nugent
