Twenty years ago the Paleo diet had a few review papers or references in anthropology books and papers. Many detractors cited a “lack of research” to support the Paleo diet/Ancestral health template. That story has changed. We now have well-conducted human trails on a host of different topics, with a consistent theme which paints the Paleo diet as safe, effective, and beneficial over the long haul. There are still detractors who cite a paucity of research, but we now have Dr. Sarah Ballantyne’s Magnum Opus, Paleo Principles, which compiles and puts into context the vast body of research which now encompasses the Paleo diet.

About the Author
Sarah Ballantyne, PhD, earned her doctorate degree in medical biophysics from the University of Western Ontario at age 26. She spent the next four years doing research on innate immunity, inflammation, critical care medicine, gene therapy, and epithelial cell biology at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, and at the University of Arizona before becoming a stay-at-home mom, a decision motivated largely by her poor health at the time.
After her second daughter was born, Dr. Ballantyne began to experiment with the Paleo lifestyle. It had an amazing effect on her health, contributing to her 120-pound weight loss. Over time, she healed herself of a laundry list of physical complaints, including irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, migraines, anxiety, asthma, allergies, psoriasis, and the autoimmune skin condition lichen planus.
Inspired by her success, Dr. Ballantyne created the popular and award-winning health blog www.ThePaleoMom.com and became co-host of a top-rated syndicated podcast, The Paleo View. Together, her passion for providing straightforward explanations of the science behind her diet and lifestyle recommendations for managing autoimmune disease and her conviction that healing your body does not have to come at the expense of enjoying food form the foundation of her books, The Paleo Approach and The Paleo Approach Cookbook.

When it comes to saturated fat, Dr. Ballantyne also parts ways with many other paleo enthusiasts. This time, in recommending moderation. In a section entitled "the saturated fat controversy," the book notes that "in humans and other animals, a very high intake of saturated fat can also induce endotoxemia" perhaps by increasing toxin-producing bacteria in the gut and/or facilitating the transport of endotoxins across the gut barrier. As I explain in my book The Keystone Approach, there is very good evidence for this phenomenon and it is reason to approach saturated fat with great caution for those with inflammatory diseases.
These are just two examples of the many points on which Dr. Ballantyne goes beyond dogma and popular opinion to really dig into what the latest science shows. All in all, Paleo Principles is a massive tome of information and I can't wait to finish reading it.

Dr. Ballantyne has a rare talent for being able to compile information from numerous research studies and scientific papers, and translate that information to make it understandable for the lay person without "dumbing" it down. My only complaint--it would be easier to read and use if it were a two book set with the recipes and meal plans in the second book.
