there's some really good info here but the stuff about fruit and fat storage for cyclical growth is unsupported and misses the health benefits of fruits. also, whereas the lectin information is good the interpretation that it affects the whole population equally is clearly untrue and the health implications of exposure to lectins having completely removed them from your diet isn't examined.

a really good concise and engaging summary of the history of the ancient world, striking a balance between the various sources and the bias of the authors of those sources. I plan to listen to it again to get a better grip on how all the bits fit together.
