PāNu means paleonutrition. The "paleo" here signifies "old" and not necessarily paleolithic. The PāNu approach to nutrition is grounded on clinical medicine and basic sciences disciplined by knowledge of evolutionary biology and paleoanthropology. The best evidence from multiple disciplines supports eating a pastoral (animal-based) diet rather than a grain-based agricultural one, while avoiding what I call the neolithic agents of disease - wheat, excess fructose and excess linoleic acid.

    I graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology in 1983 and received my MD from University of Iowa College of Medicine in 1987. After residency training in radiology, and fellowship training in neuroradiology, I spent several years in academic positions at Iowa before entering private practice. I am currently a practicing board-certified radiologist and a senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiology.

    I have had a lifelong interest in science and medicine as culture, and believe all claims to scientific authority should be subject to thoughtful skepticism.

    After hearing Gary Taubes on the radio, I had an epiphany and ever since I've been exploring the field of nutrition through the lenses of medicine and evolutionary biology.
