The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care by Sally Fallon Morell & Thomas Cowan, MD
The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care makes the principles of traditional nutrition available to modern parents. The book provides holistic advice for pregnancy and newborn interventions, vaccinations, breastfeeding and child development, as well as a compendium of natural treatments for childhood illnesses, from autism to whooping cough. The work of Rudulf Steiner supports the book’s emphasis on the child’s spiritual requirement for imaginative play.
Systemic autoimmunity appears to be the inevitable consequence of over-stimulating the host’s immune ‘system’ by repeated immunization with antigen, to the levels that surpass system’s self-organized criticality.

Seems I stand alone in questioning The Cleveland Clinic and their nutrition recommendations. In this case we’re looking at heart health.
‘The Clinic’ (as it is known wherever they are found) had a Twitter chat session hashtag #CCHeart, where they provided everyone with an opportunity to ask questions of their highly regarded heart specialists.
I’m posting the question I asked, and the reply from Dr. Nissen.
Understand this, Dr. Nissen is no run of the mill general practitioner, he is the Cardiovascular Medicine Department Chair at The Cleveland Clinic. He co-authored the book Heart 411 (which I have previosuly tweeted and blogged).
Here’s our brief interaction in 2 tweets:
Dr. Nissen dismisses my question by referring to Neanderthals, which are some 30,000 years extinct, and a wholly different species than humans.
Is there no hope in utilizing evolutionary biology in understanding what best honors an optimal human diet?
I am surmising Dr. Nissen does not believe in evolution. If he did, he would surely believe that the biology of humans has been exposed to, affected by, and is a result of the evolutionary process.
I for one believe there are foods better optimized for human health, and they should be consumed in proportions drastically different than those proposed by The Cleveland Clinic.
I have so much more to say here, but I am such a poor writer and have little passion or enthusiasm for this type of writing especially so.
