-In European medicine we have set values to levels of all kinds of chemicals which are based on averages among the population. Muskiet argues that we should not set our targets using the current population, because our blood is a reflection of our current diet. Instead we should take the levels of cholesterol, omega-3 acids, glucose, hormones, etc, from people that live in conditions and with diets close to that of prehistoric man (like the Bushmen or the Masai.) Levels of cholesterol and many other chemical linked with diseases of affluence are markedly lower than the European norm. Mothers milk in Europe doesn't even meet our own standard any more, he says, there is a great lack of omega-3 and an overload of linoleic acid. Muskiet shows that all Dutch people actually have much too high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides and lack vitamin-D and omega-3 acids en many have problematic sugar metabolic rates.+In European medicine we have set values to levels of all kinds of chemicals which are based on averages among the population.
