  • Meat and Brain Size: Incredible Link



    Dr. Eades is amazing. I don't know how he managed to dig up another great article but this one really applies to those who love their meat:

    http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/l...rians-part-ii/

    The paper he discusses argues that humans developed big brains because we transitioned to eating large amounts of meat.

    I also think cooking the meat explains the second jump in brain development (he mentions this theory a bit too if your read through a lot of comments).

        Eades does do good work. It's just a pity he didn't get into the effects of cooking meat. That would account for the elevation in the last million years and fit controlled fire usage time estimations nicely.

        • Grains (wheat/rice/oats etc) . . . . . • Dairy (milk/yogurt/butter/cheese etc) . . . . .• Nightshades (peppers/tomato/eggplant etc)
        • Tubers (potato/arrowroot etc) . . . • Modernly palatable (cashews/olives etc) . . . • Refined foods (salt/sugars etc )
        • Legumes (soy/beans/peas etc)

            Yea, I am going to keep this link for a long time. It is great to use as reference when explaining why you eat the way you do.
