Study Links Humanity’s Evolutionary Success to Meat-Eating
The study compared nearly 70 mammalian species and found a connection between eating meat and a faster weaning process.
Washington Depot, CT (I-Newswire) July 26, 2012 - Researchers at Lund University in Sweden recently concluded that eating meat is one reason behind the evolutionary success of humankind. The study compared nearly 70 mammalian species and found a connection between eating meat and a faster weaning process.
“Experts agree that learning to hunt was a decisive step in human evolution,” say boomer generation health experts Dian Griesel, Ph.D., and Tom Griesel, authors of the new books TurboCharged: Accelerate Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Get Lean Fast and Leave Diet and Exercise Rules in the Dust (April 2011, BSH) and
The TurboCharged Mind (January 2012, BSH). “Hunting requires communication, planning and the use of tools, all of which helped in the development of a larger brain. Adding meat to the diet made it possible to develop this larger brain.”
“Although many have tried to explain the shorter weaning period of humans based on social and behavioral theories, the Lund group has now shown that humans are no different than other mammals with respect to the timing of weaning,” adds Tom. “It is brain development and diet composition that determine the time human young stop suckling. This time period compares perfectly with the pattern in other mammals.”
“This model shows that the young of all species cease to suckle when their brains have reached a particular stage of development on the path from conception to full brain size,” adds Dian. “Carnivores wean earlier than herbivores or omnivores and humans are most like carnivores with respect to timing of weaning. In the past, researchers have often pondered the difference between humans and the great apes, which now seems to depend merely on the fact that as a species we became carnivores, whereas gorillas, orangutans and chimpanzees are herbivores or omnivores.”
