A remarkable blog posting here from Dr Michael Eades, who shows, stunningly, that we didn't just evolve to eat meat, but actually evolved because we eat meat. The argument is clear, well-structured, and very difficult to refute. It derives from the "Expensive Tissue Hypothesis", and an article in the 1995 journal "Current Anthropology" by Aiello and Wheeler. Read it, it's gripping and may change the way you see food forever.
