Ashland: Doc Film & Discussion Series presents Paleo Diet, Part 2

Ashland – The Ashland Documentary Film & Discussion Series will present a film, Does Evolution Science Support the Paleo Diet?, Part 2, Tuesday, Nov. 25, from 7-9 p.m., in the community room of the Ashland Library, 66 Front St. Admission is free, and viewers are invited to stay for discussion.


Part 2 closely examines several tenants of “Paleo-logic,” including the idea that hunter-gatherer populations are appropriate models of diet and health for the rest of us. The widely held belief in Paleo literature that the last ice age would have required humans to eat mostly meat is also examined.


What does nutrition science tell us about the role of meat in gout, diabetes, colon health, urea production and water loss? Join in for the concluding look at evolution science and Paleo diet.


The Documentary Film & Discussion Series meets every 2nd Thursday and 4th Tuesday of the month for an in-depth look at important topics of our day. The moderated discussions are often lively and thought provoking. All points of view are welcomed. For more information, call the library at 508-881-0134 or visit
