A news flash for those pale, gaunt vegan nannies who try to force a meat-free diet on the rest of us: new research on our fossilized ancestors shows that meat has always been the single largest component of our global diet, and that eating meat made early humans more robust. This according to the Sydney Morning Herald. Professor Arthur de Vany of Cal State Irvine puts it like this: “It is easy to tell from the skeletons of our ancestors whether they were agriculturists [vegetarians] or hunter-gatherers [meat-eaters]. The agriculturists have bad teeth, bone lesions, small and underdeveloped skeletons, and small craniums.”
