'Hard-core adherents of the faddish Paleo diet like to crow that       eating like our über-great ancestors is a way to beat the scourge  of  so-called “modern” diseases like cancer. So what to make of a         recent study published in the journal Cell Metabolism that found      people who eat lots of protein in middle age were more likely to      die of cancer than those who eat less? How much more likely?        Four times. That puts the increased cancer risk on par with          smoking.'
