And we are so clearly there wasn't enough selection pressure for the amount that they were eating to make them a healthy food group. It would probably take the reconstruction of the digestive system to resemble that of a bird, forming a ridiculous looking bird-ape. The would be badass, I want one
      This is the right answer of course. And I would like to see giant raccoon versus bird-ape. There's probably a B&W Japanese monster movie already out there somewhere though.

        Also, paleolithic man probably needed to store fat at times. This ain't true for us.

          To look at it from a sociological point of view it's still very much a hunter-gatherer society. It's incredibly laborious to harvest "true" grains and there's no way a nomadic group would bother to do it regularly. But the women, young and elderly could certainly grab the odd handful of cattails, wild potatoes and other easily foraged growing things in the same way they'd grab fruit and veg from trees and plants. And I don't see any proof in the "article" that they made naan or pancakes, just they they probably ground them up...maybe they made "bread" coating for their meat! Primal KFC, baby!

          In my mind this does nothing to discredit their main diet. And I'm surprised to see (at least) three threads about it springing up on this forum!

            I agree with Danny Kaye! And the lots of animals. Can you hope to win, when such cuteness stands against you?
            Could you type that again - in something resembling English this time...?!

              Maybe best to let that post just exist in its own language rather than translate.
