As for the "evidence"... Man has been around about 2.5 million years. Agriculture has been around about 10 thousand. If grain-free is so unhealthy how on earth did man survive the intervening 2.4 million years? By contrast the current way of eating has been around about 200 yrs (refined sugar/flour, canning, etc.) or less (trans-fats, HFCS). And in that time (the 10K, not the 200), we've seen all sorts of diet related diseases that did not exist prior (from scurvy, beriberi, osteoperosis, rickets to the more modern diabetes, celiac, arthereosclerosis, etc).
What exactly do you think grains bring to the diet that can't be found elsewhere?
Please do provide the evidence- since we only have a period of time of recorded history and we do not have evidence to accuretly know what man died of prior to recorded history, you must know something the rest of us do not.
There is a great difference in man that walked on all fours and up right man and gut development during this time.
To state that the above mentioned diseases did not exist prior to recorded history is purely inaccurate.
This is about organic (and meat in general)- grasses are grains (achenes /poaceae-gramineae ). And there is a distinction between grains and cereal grasses. Unless you know of tests that are testing people for "grass" allergies please do provide this information-a celica does not accurately do so, it does not test for the allergies for over 4000+ species. It is truly false to be grain-free and still eat meat and dairy-you are what the animal eats. Alfalfa is not a grass yet is it called so by many farmers and people eat it thinking they are eating a "grass". Many organic "meats" are also finished off with grains but again grass is a grain.
I prefer to get my macronutrients, mocronutriednts, and phytonutrients from several sources and that included grains and the animals that eat them - I like the serotonins and want them in my diet! NOTE- I am unable to obtain all from other sources as only few select fruits give enough serotonins.
Since man has been eating grains on a regular bases since recorded history I have yet to see a peer review study showing the long term benefits of not doing so (that means no meat of dairy diet).
I serve what I eat and I also think it is rude to not do so.
