The Paleo Rodeo #062

By Diana Hsieh

Welcome to this week's edition of The Paleo Rodeo!

The Paleo Rodeo is a weekly blog carnival featuring the best paleo-related posts by members of the PaleoBloggers e-mail list. The past editions are collected on this page.

What is "paleo"? As I say in Modern Paleo Principles:

A "paleo" approach to health uses the evolutionary history of homo sapiens, plus the best of modern science, as a broad framework for guiding daily choices about diet, fitness, medicine, and supplementation. The core of paleo is the diet: it eschews grains, sugars, and modern vegetable oils in favor of high-quality meat, fish, eggs, and vegetables.
The purpose of The Paleo Rodeo is to highlight some of the best blogging of the ever-growing paleosphere.

Here is this week's edition:
Julianne Taylor presents Bone Marrow Transplants and the life saving effect of omega 3 posted at Julianne's Paleo & Zone Nutrition Blog, saying, "About 6 years ago my brother was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, and had to have a bone morrow transplant from an unrelated donor. I discovered a study that showed Omega 3 was very powerful in reducing Graft Versus Host Disease, a potentially fatal reaction to a BMT."
