Science says raw foods not enough to grow big brains.
Fascinating. I love how they mentioned that they "counted" the neurons in 13 different primates. I'm just picturing them like, "twenty-seven billion, three hundred thirty nine thousand four hundred and three, twenty-seven billion, three hundred thirty nine..."
So we can actually attribute most of our ability for complex thought to the fact that we simply cooked food? Amazing.
this great blue world of ours seems a house of leaves, moments before the wind
I didn't read that link but have watched the doco on BBC called something like "Did fire make us human?"
I completely agree with the concept that cooking food is what caused a large jump in evolution for humans. The number of calories and nutrients that can be released from food compared to eating it raw is enormous.
Reminds me of these mislead souls that believe eating raw is the only way to go. Not for us it isn't. Not unless you have time to graze all day long.
