The representatives of Paleo diet, which offers high concentration of meat and less of carbohydrates, has criticized the findings in a research that revealed carbohydrates equally essential for human brain.
Paleo diet claims to be following the principle of promoting meat and vegetables—that have a history of benefitting human metabolism during evolution.
A new study, meanwhile, stated that food rich in starch is a must in overall development of human brain.
"It is always best to let the data speak for itself and not let poorly tested and poorly thought out hypotheses by charismatic individuals guide the scientific method," said Paleo Diet’s Founder Loren Cordain.
The present study has been co-authored by University of Sydney. The research paper assumes that concentrated starch formed with plant foods have had a remarkable role in the development of humans.
Slamming the researchers, Paleo Diet representatives rather said that start is a “hard to digest “component in food.
Researcher Gedgaudas alleged that government regulations have long been highlighting carbohydrates in the bad light---blocking development of human brain over the years.
She argued that over past 10,000 years, more than 10% development of each individual’s brain remained blocked due to regulations on carbohydrate-rich foods. She also stated that starch was a cost-effective agricultural produce but still remained less encouraged.
The researchers concluded that animal meat dominated the human food markets it overshadowed the importance of natural food sources.
Other researchers stated that the debate was not on meat versus carbohydrates. But the purpose of the study was to bring out the importance of natural food.
