Subject: Kurzweil's diet
Date: Sat, 23 Nov 2002 23:28:36 -0800

Based on the accounts I've read of Ray Kurzweil's diet, it sounds to me as 
if he's yet another guy trying to reinvent Paleolithic nutrition, based as 
it was on high-protein, low-glycemic foods rich in Omega 3 fatty acids.

The problem is, our agriculturally modified crops & livestock have been 
compromised in some bad ways, so adhering to such a diet from store-bought 
foods is difficult, if not impossible. Wild fish populations in the oceans 
are being depleted, while American deer & elk populations are now suspect 
because a lot of them are infected with spongiform encephalopathy -- known 
as mad cow disease in cattle, and Creuzfeld-Jakob disease in humans. And 
where could they have gotten infected, if not from domestic cattle who share 
their grazing grounds?

What's a hunter-gatherer to do?

It's not "religious" or "science fictional" if you can do it.
