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 of the Rodeo 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:
Amy Kubal presents Paleo Bus Accident - The Wheels Fell Off... posted at Robb Wolf, saying, "Did your 'wheels stay on' over the holidays?

Low carb but I am sure the PHD followers can add some chunked potato for some added thickness and flavor. Enjoy!"
Danny J Albers presents Placebo Effect and Confirmation Bias posted at Primal North, saying, "A review with examples of the way confirmation bias and the placebo affect can serve to produce a metric tonne of both anecdotal and clinical evidence for pretty much any health treatment or diet you care to concieve of. Punctuated with a highly personal sharing of how my own retired mother continues to spend her way into poverty and even worsening health by this very same marketing mechanism. Most people will not like this post but I feel it quite honest and certainly from my heart."
