    The last paragraph hits home regarding everything you've been talking about

    "Cost-effective methods of indoor climate control have only been developed within the last century and any behavioral symptoms rooted in a lack of “thermal exercise” would clearly be exacerbated by climate-controlled lifestyles. It would be interesting to determine whether diagnoses of anxiety disorder or other conditions predicted by noradrenergic dysfunction have increased following the introduction of affordable climate control systems in the mid-to late 20th century. We live in a time where climate-controlled conditions are common, and it is clear that we are living in conditions much different from that of our ancestors. Whether this evolutionary incongruity is responsible for the prevalence of anxiety and depressive disorders has yet to be determined, but the findings presented here suggest that cold temperatures can potentially treat depression and anxiety in humans."

    Love the phrase "thermal exercise". Sounds so normal. As in-" Of course you're sick, you haven't been getting any thermal exercise."

    He is another shocker.......Robb Wolf just told AHS 2012 that metformin is great for people.......Hey Gretchen did you hear that? Robb is now on board with the Epi paleo Rx education consults........can you imagine when he reads about cycloset?

    It's not about who is right.......it is about getting people healthy the way mother nature intended. We need to reverse the modern behaviors that fast forwarded our circadian clocks.........and sped up the shortening of our telomeres.

    you are 100% right...but as I see it the big thing is Robb's paradigm is shifting, he's looking at things through a different lens - and that's taking his thinking in different yet positive directions...

    you planted the seed. Some of us grabbed on w/both hands and held on for dear life - while others shook their heads and called both you and us crazy...yet here we stand, changing things through quiet revolution..... :)
