Paleontologist Dr. Alan Walker, of Johns Hopkins University, led a comprehensive study on the teeth markings on humanoid fossils. A NY Times article reported his conclusions: "Every tooth of the hominids of the 12 million year period leading up to Homo Erectus appeared to be that of a fruit eater." So meat eating probably played a very small role in human development. The diets of our closest primate relatives of today may include small amounts of meat and insects, but they probably account for no more than 1-3% of calorie intake. In the last 75 years, animal product consumption in Western society has zoomed to unprecedented levels, and now provides about 30% of our calories. Which would seem to explain why nearly all Americans have cardiovascular disease. Carnivores and genuine omnivores can eat all the animal fat and cholesterol they want without requiring bypass surgery. Not so true for humans...
