Nutrients in food vital to location of early human settlements: The original 'Palaeo-diet'

Over 50 nutrients are needed to sustain human life. In particular, it would have been essential for early humans to find sources of protein, fats, carbohydrates, folic acid and vitamin C. The researchers suggest vitamins and protein may have come from sources such as raw liver, eggs, fish and plants, including watercress (which grows year round). Fats in particular, may have come from bone marrow, beaver tails and highly nutritious eels.

The nutritional diversity of these sites allowed hominins to colonise the Atlantic fringe of north west Europe during warm periods of the Pleistocene. These sites permitted the repeated occupation of this marginal area from warmer climate zones further south

Local Global warming is vital too (for large populations).

>> The researchers suggest...

They suggest, eh? But they don’t know? Why are we paying them? They shouldn’t produce a report until they can do better than “suggest”.

Why, when I was their age...

500 handaxes or more were discovered

Earth to hippie academic: 500 handaxes weren't for chopping the happy commune firewood. That many functional handaxes found together are the loser's battle axes.

Often raw milk stories show up on FR... stirring lively debate.

I am not big on Weston A. Price, per se... it’s just that I was raised on real foods, and mom refused to feed us hydrogenated soybean oil... before anyone ever heard of “transfats”, or identified soy as a phytoestrogen.
