On the Fact that (According to Research Uncovered by Dr. John McDougall) Even Neanderthals Apparently Ate Grains

Yeah, this demonization of starch really needs to stop. The fact of the matter is that grains, potatoes (both white and sweet), and legumes have been the major foods of every civilization (the Native-Americans with corn, the Chinese with rice, the Africans with millet, the Middle-Easterners with pita, etc.) in human history. And who in his right mind would even consider that bacon (for example) is a) preferable to wheat and barley and b) a prototype of what our ancient ancestors consumed? This (low carbohydrate paleo diet) is all about telling people what they want to here, in my estimation.
