Yeh, I'm cool with idea that in paleo apples, pears, berries, nuts, tubers - natural carbs are "allowed". All fine.
It's the position that grains are not allowed, such as rice/ quinoa/ breads - that article provides evidence that such "cavemen" DID eat the grain-like carbohydrates.
Naturally eating highly processed foods, processed sugars, fried foods, donuts, hot chips would not be in the Paleolithic/ Neolithic diet - they really ought not be in our modern day diet either.... but it's not for any reason but the nutrition factor.
