After the Ancestral Health Symposium ended, one of the show organizers, J. Brett Smith approached us and said he had organized an impromptu meeting outside the conference hall and he wanted us to bring the audio recorder because what was about to be said was going to rock the Paleo world.

Brett assured us that the assembled group represented a rare gathering of thinkers on the subject of plants. Despite the conventional wisdom that we need to eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, this group's controversial position is that fruit's and vegetables are overrated, unnecessary, and maybe even toxic!

According to the eclectic group of PhDs, authors, self-experimenters, and more, plants have been engaging in chemical warfare, which of course sounds like dirty tactics until you consider that they lack the ability to scurry away or fight back with tooth and claw like animals do. So, without these things they've had to develop an entire arsenal of insidious chemicals to ward off predators like us.

We've never really questioned the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables but the evidence presented by this panel was compelling and certainly dims the health halo surrounding plant based diets.
