Dear professor

Bad lecture, bad audio

Oxford continues a trend. In this case, we have both bad audio (the professor fades in and out as he walks away from the microphone), AND a bad lecture (Lecture 1, 2/10/10). Perhaps I’m biased as a physician and pathologist. It seems that a nutritional anthropologist should inform us of historical nutritional practices, and how they were shown to be beneficial or harmful. Professor Ulijaszek appears to be acting as a nutritionist instead. He literally spent the first half of the show giving advice and opinions on proper nutrition. First I have to say that I’m skeptical that research on nutrition as a PhD gives you the credentials to give nutritional advice. I wish he had reported on the anthropology, given a few opinions as a side note, and left the nutritional advice to a registered dietician or physician. Perhaps more importantly, his arguments were fraught with logical fallacies. Just because the modern “processed food diet” is bad, doesn’t mean that the “paleo diet” is optimal human nutrition. Just because humans evolved with the “paleo diet” doesn’t mean that it was optimal nutrition for modern humans.
