The Inuit (“Eskimo”) Diet Causes Rapid Aging, Early Death

The Inu­it are the indige­nous peo­ple of Green­land as well as north­ern Cana­da and Alas­ka. Since the 1970s, we have been told that the Inuit’s tra­di­tion­al high-fat, low-car­bo­hy­drate diet is healthy. Today, advo­cates of the “keto” and “Paleo” diets make false claims about the Inu­it diet. In real­i­ty, the Inu­it who were eat­ing their tra­di­tion­al diet did not go into keto­sis unless they were fast­ing. Also, the Inu­it have always had a short lifes­pan. That fact was obvi­ous to the ear­li­est Euro­peans who stud­ied them.

In fact, the health­i­est pop­u­la­tions are the ones that eat very lit­tle fat of any kind and lots of veg­eta­bles.
