This is why I don't do paleo debates; it causes bad vibes between people that I otherwise get along with. I know who Gary Taubes is and what he's about, and I can assure you I will not be buying a book written by him. I know more about this topic than I lead others to believe, and its because I've walked down this path too many times. I typically stay out of these conversations these days.
I'll just say this; my opinions on the matter are similarly structured to those of Alan Aragon and Lyle McDonald.
