Maybe it’s the New! Lunchables soft batch cookies with the chocolate chips and icing you can spread on them? Just saw those at Randalls the other day! Yum! Is this good nutrition? That even makes brown rice look nutritious to me! Over all, our diet has gotten worse and more removed from a natural one by the day. Especially recently in fact. In the same 30 years since the introduction of the food pyramid, and the call for a low fat, high carbohydrate what has happened to the health of the population of the United States? 60% of adult Americans is obese.
More than half of ALL adults! That’s one dietary experiment has obviously failed by any thinking person’s standards. Actually, this last post you read was more complete than the first one. It comes with more book titles and also links. Can you site studies that show that people in Paleolithic times had RA? If you don’t like a post, you needn’t respond to it. There are others here who find this stuff very interesting and people like you scare people away from posting relevant information that could profoundly help even just one person.
There are other ways than just your way. We are all here to share. They are not extinct. We are descended from them. Do you mean why did they give up hunting and gathering to become farmers? That question no one knows the answer to. Here’s one hypothesis: “The origins of agriculture — a biological perspective and a new hypothesis” in which Greg Wadley & Angus Martin argue that the shift to cultivation and animal domestication was due to the “comfort” derived from the opioid peptides from gluten. But some of your direct ancestors must have stayed out where it’s wild and woolly or you yerself wouldn’t have gotten gluten intolerance passed down to you, right? If they, each and all, had settled for agrarian foodstuffs only.
And some juvenile arthritics gimped well enuff from the mastodons and sabre-toothed tigers to reach the age to reproduce..some had to have. You still ARE a most excellent hunter, Don W. With my loose jointedness, I’m picturing my ancestors swinging thru trees like gibbons. Genetically, we are identical to them. We are them, and they are us. That is the whole point of this discussion. Genetically we have not evolved , we just have remote control now, but genetically there has been found that there are no discernable difference between us an them.
