Nice article but it still paints us as omnivores given our gut length plus if we go back far enough we are fish. So yes they do make a point what is the starting point but that is the only point they make. They forget to mention that Chimps eat meat (documented). So we are still omnivores no matter how much you or other vegans like to change that fact. 

 

I don't believe that meat was the major food source, I believe it has always been a combination of both depending on what was available. Hunting is not easy especially not back then so plants were certainly eaten. But it is known that we developed more brain size once we started eating meat. 

 

Meat is just good for us (in limited quantities) if you don't eat any meat you have a far harder time getting all the nutrients you need. It can be done (plenty of people do it) but back then when we evolved we did not have that choice. Now its possible to not eat meat. We don't need it but it makes life easier. 

 

I never believed too much in paleo because diet varied by the season and where people were. So to claim that there was an uniform paleo diet is a bit crazy. Still its good to eat unprocessed stuff and that is where they got it right. 

 

A vegetarian living off highly processed carbs is certainly off worse then someone following a paleo diet. 

 

And lets not forget we really started to evolve once we started eating more meat and conquered fire. Those are not those apes talked about in your article. I have no clue how long it takes to evolve or adapt to certain things so i can't say if this article is relevant or not. But you should thank your ancestors that they started eating meat of you would be as dumb as an ape.

Just sharing info bro...from a proper source. Perhaps you should write a paper, as you seem to be (think you are) an expert on the subject or perhaps you should take it up with the author...who is btw a biologist at North Carolina State University...if you have issues 

 

The chimps eating meat was not forgotten in the article, as you wrongly claimed. 

 

'chimpanzees sometimes kill and devour a baby monkey, but the proportion of the diet of the average chimpanzee composed of meat is small. And chimps eat more mammal meat than any of the other apes or any of the monkeys.'

Just sharing info bro...from a proper and qualified source. Perhaps you should write a paper, as you seem to be (think you are) an expert on the subject or perhaps you should take it up with the author...who is btw a biologist at North Carolina State University...if you have issues.

 

Also...

The chimps eating meat part was not forgotten in the article, as you wrongly claimed. 

 

'chimpanzees sometimes kill and devour a baby monkey, but the proportion of the diet of the average chimpanzee composed of meat is small. And chimps eat more mammal meat than any of the other apes or any of the monkeys.'

 

Regardless, humans did not evolve from Chimpanzees...but rather are closely related to Chimps and share a more recent common ancestor. In reality, we Humans are Great Apes. 

 

Finally (sigh), I clearly never claimed that Homo sapiens aren't omnivorous. That fact is obvious and to which I've never disagreed, despite being an evolved vegan. 

 

Don't put words in my mouth and I won't put veggies in yours.

I am no expert just giving a bit of extra information on the article. You can put veggies in my mouth I like them. I just happen to eat meat too. 

 

You put out a post i reply to it and do so civil. My mistake they did claim chimps ate meat too. Baboons do so too they even eat gazelle. I never claimed they ate the majority of meat. Just as I always claimed is that we and some apes are omnivores. You are in agreement with that that is good science.

 

Is it so wrong to point certain things out that go against the vegan point of view.

 

I have nothing against veggies, i think I eat more veggies /  fruit  as meat (weight wise)

If vegetarianism is so wonderful, why is it that pregnant women are strongly advised to take supplements because vegetables alone are not enough? I regard vegetarianism as just another religion (and veganism a cult)

I never said vegetarianism is wonderful I am a meat eater (and veggies / fruits more then meat). But I have no problem with people who are. I just like freedom of choice.
