Very good read. :)
This article reminds us that: “It’s when you mate, not what you ate” that determines evolutionary success of an individual.
Hoyes, a paleoethnobotanist who specializes in reconstructing prehistoric subsistence, stated that only thing unifying the myriad diets that she’s studied has been their diversity. “You simply do not see specific, trans-regional trends in human subsistence in the archaeological record. People can live off everything from whale blubber to seeds and grasses. You want to know what the ideal human diet consists of? Everything. Humans can and will eat everything, and we are remarkably successful not in spite of this fact, but because of it. Our adaptability is the hallmark of the human species. We’re not called omnivores for nothing.”
I hope this article gets some of the more unhinged Paleo fanatics searching for sources of whale blubber.
YES. I know so many people at work on this and it’s annoying. Mainly because they act so superior when they see me eating a sandwich. Oh no not bread…
