dittybopper: Not early humans, because not genus Homo.Australopithecus wasn't human. More like an upright gorilla/chimp ancestor of man.

Clemkadidlefark: Thank God my relatives progressed to eating animal proteins roasted over fire.
brantgoose: We still eat a lot of grass--in the form of pasta, bread, rice, corn, flour, tacos, etc.This does explain why we have lost the ability to synthesize vitamin C, though, and also perhaps makes a "grain" diet more natural relative to a fruit and nut-based diet. Although admittedly fruits, nuts, vegetables and roots are still healthier than the empty starchy calories of grain. Even for cows, grain is a sometimes food. We use it to fatten them up for slaughter, but feed them forage and other junk to bring them to slaughtering age.
