    Blog post by Michael Eades on the relative health impacts of meat-based hunter diet vs. plant-based agricultural diet.

    Yes. And Paranthropus boisei, the one human ancestor who appears to have gone down the road of vegetarianism as a primary means of nutrition, was an evolutionary dead end.

    I was gonna say how human the skull on the right looked - it was human doh!

    I'm guessing you'd pick up some nasty bugs and parasites if you feed on the same things hippos do. But when they say grass, how big do they mean?

    Sorry to revive this thread, but we have canine teeth as a means of survival, we hardly need them when we can walk down to Safeway and steal a sandwich.

    Great article on our plant eating ancestor though. Interesting...I do believe eating meat in part helped feed our larger brain. I wonder if there is anything else on the topic.

    There is plenty of evidence which goes against this hypothesis. We wouldn't have survived and developed if we didn't eat meat, it's as simple as that. Meat provided the nutrients and calories we needed to feed the growth of our brains.
