Don't know how I missed this site before,anyhow since I have become interested in neurotransmitters,I started to read it.  It is a lot free but some paid.
Million articles, to look at somewhat hard to navigate, I have just started to read,but explains what is really going
on with diet,gut bacteria,neurotransmitters,disease.
This is beyond paleo,eat seafood,mostly shellfish,as main protein source,I have not scratched the surface
yet.  Have been looking for something like this for years epigenetics and diet. Actually have seen this before
but did not pay enough attention.

Yes seafood is healthier than beef but my gut responds with IBS symptoms so I can't eat much seafood. Tuna in a can is very tolerated but shellfish is a meltdown with multiple BM's hours later as it hits.
I LOVE seafood, wish my gut did.

My gut loves beef, what's a girl to do but make her gut happy? I don't eat a lot of beef/meat per day however, usually 4 oz of beef 2x week, chicken 4x week.
Current diet=modified Paleo (sm amts of swiss cheese and some fruit OK)
In remission April 2010 after 10 years of UC with no remission ever
gluten-free (bleeding stopped) and dairy-free (less gas) started remission path+food diary
current meds=(9)Balsalazide+(2)Citrucel,(1) VSL#3 nightly
Rx meds have never worked for me except for mesalamine enema

Meat does not contain enough DHA to form a human brain

I eat a lot of fish and supplement with extra DHA/EPA, but I can not not not tolerate shellfish or seaweed.  

This might be a problem since I wonder if there is a deficiency. I cannot even take a multivite with iodine since it is derived from kelp. We are only talking micrograms but it still sinks me. 

Anyway this paper dovetails beautifully with a book I read 40 years ago proposing an alternative trajectory of evolution. The Descent of Woman by Elaine Morgan proposes that humans evolved on beaches. Don't laugh, it makes some very good points. It is called the Aquatic Ape Theory and is still considered outside of the mainstream.

But it explains why we ate so much seafood for brain development.  They recently found archeological evidence near the southern tip of Africa and some respected scientists have finally begun to take it seriously. Decide for yourself, it is a fun read.

I thought this book was far superior to the other popular anthropological book at the time, The Naked Ape by Desmond Morris. As a side note it also tries to explain how and why human males and females look at sex so differently. As a young man overflowing with testosterone I needed all the reasons I could find to be a gentleman while dating.
