A Land Flowing with Milk and ... Wine?

That's the title of a chapter in my book, Original Thin: the Paleo Diet in the Bible and Ancient Literature.

I argue that Paleo purists are wrong in asserting that we should avoid dairy products and alcohol simply because ancient humans didn't enjoy them or couldn't digest them.

I've made a video in which I argue my case:

I do hope that other Paleo enthusiasts can either agree to disagree with me or agree with me on these points. I really don't want to be branded as "that Paleo guy who supports dairy and drinking." But I have to be true to my principles. So, people, be fair to me and at least hear me out.
