Well, I’m really amazed now. For all this time I thought that our ancestors, those cave guys, sat around on Sunday watching rockball and eating cheezwiz and crackers with their hot dogs and Doritos. I am so disappointed to learn that we evolved eating an early version of health food and it wasn’t pre-packaged instant mac and cheese or food-fare from their local burger joint.
Actually I really am disappointed about the local burger joint thing. I could have gleefully gone the rest of my life eating double quarter-pounders, large fries and a thick chocolate shake-like substance. I particularly like the mint flavored shake-like substance they serve around St Patty’s day every year. Now I have to rethink all of this.
It seems as though, if I don’t want to look like a happy elephant that I have to eat more like those cave guys did. That means more proteins, a lot less simple carbs like you get in processed boxes of instant food, no high fructose corn syrup laden sodas and, dare I say it no more fast food. Geez, I was just getting used to my long trunk-like nose and really big butt.
Sometimes I just hate science. Next thing you know they are going to be telling us the world isn’t flat.
(Natural News) “Fast food environment incompatible with the biological hardware provided by human evolution”
“As scientists are discovering, our modern food supply — overloaded with fast food, processed foods and soft drinks — is simply incompatible with the biological hardware engineered through human evolution. We’re designed to burn lots of calories and eat relatively few, yet most people today do exactly the opposite: they burn few calories and consume enormous portions.”
“Even further, we’re not at all built to digest refined carbohydrates like high-fructose corn syrup, refined white flour or refined sugar, and yet these ingredients are consumed in very large quantities at virtually every meal in America.”
“There’s nothing wrong with our genes: it’s that our modern food supply has given us far too many calories and far more food processing than our bodies evolved to handle. It’s time for doctors and researchers to stop blaming our genes for diseases and start looking at the real source: our national food supply.”
