Example text

Growth impairment? No, the pre-contact Osage, and Kiowa in North America and the Masai in Africa were giants by modern standards. Impaired intellectual development? Well, the people of the Pacific Northwest were living in large wooden houses and processing and storing oolichan grease millennia before the development of olive oil in the Eastern Mediterranean. So what are the textbook characteristics of dietary carbohydrate deficiency? Yes, we agree that maintaining a normal blood glucose level is essential for human well-being.

The rest of the brain’s fuel must indeed come from glucose, but this amount (usually less than 50 grams per day) is easily produced endogenously by the liver from ‘metabolic left-overs’ via a process called gluconeogenesis. Thus, the brain uses glucose in varying amounts depending upon the availability of ketones. The manifest ability of the body to supply the brain with fuel independent of dietary carbohydrate intake clearly contradicts this committee’s assertion that the brain is a carbohydrate-dependent organ.

Every Christian recognizes the phrase “give us this day, our daily bread”. This very quickly becomes thin ice for a scientist when there is no emotional daylight between dietary carbohydrate and our instinctive (or religious) sense of well-being, and thus our very existence. It is a religious tenet and thus defies being questioned. The point here is that there is a very blurry line between our rational and emotional attraction to dietary carbohydrates. Specifically, do we as scientists rationally examine the possibility that our intellectual constructs of dietary essentiality shadow our religious beliefs?
