What Would be an Ideal Diet?
Agriculture has been around for only 12,000 years. Prior to this, for over 4 million years, human beings or their ancestors lived from hunting fishing and gathering. This means they ate plants, nuts and seeds, fruits, fish, grubs and game. The only milk they drank came from their mother, so they stopped drinking milk around five years of age when they were weaned. Without agriculture they had very little access to grains. Because this primitive diet has been eaten for millions of years, it is ideally suited to keeping human beings healthy. Our current diet, very rich in grains, sweets, fatty meats and milk products is contributing to our ill health. If you want to improve your health, try this diet.
