    This guys brain as well as his colon is full of shit. I guess he means to say that 200,000 years of homo sapiens eating as an omnivore was totally wrong? I would wager this is another vegetarian/vegan activist with way too much time on his hands. Pass the ribs please.

    His argument is bullcrap. Chimpanzees and gorillas and monkeys are not our ancestors, they share a common ancestor with us. For a "scientist" to make a statement like that is just an amazing sign of his lack of understanding. He and John McDougall should open up their own revisionist teaching university and 30bananaboy can run their Phys ed department.

    "The resolution does not come from new discoveries by archaeologists. It comes from context. When we talk about “paleo” diets, we arbitrarily tend to start with one set of ancestors, our most recent ones. I want to eat like Homo erectus or a Neanderthal or a stone age human, my neighbors testify. But why do we choose these particular ancestors as starting points? They do seem tough and admirable in a really strong five o’ clock shadow sort of way. But if we want to return to the diet our guts and bodies evolved to deal with, we should not be looking at our most recent ancestors. Instead, we need to understand the diet of our ancestors during the time when the main features of our guts, and their magical abilities to turn food into life, evolved. We need, in other words, to look at apes, monkeys and other non-human primates."

    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
    READ THE BOOK! ...as Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."

    Btw, I went to university w/ a guy who sported a serious Neanderthal type forehead & a strong facial make-up. He was my buddy & he was tough, strong, & funny as hell.

    You went to Uni with Ron Pearlman?
    But you look so much younger...

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    It was Ron's son & actually there were two of them. My buddy had a younger brother sporting the same cool caveman forehead. Drove the ladies gaga...

    Btw, I like those cavemen commercials on tv, still to me, they are funny after all these years. But I'm easily amused. And I just turned 47 y.o. on Saturday, that age where I'm not "old" yet, but I ain't young anymore either. Other than grey hairs creeping in, I seem to be holding up ok.
