One of the biggest lies of humanity, “grains are healthy”
This is one of those times where our big heads have gotten us in big trouble.
There was a point in human history where most of the large mammals in europe (between 20,000 t0 10,000 years ago) disappeared and the humans switched to hunting more birds.
This is also the time where we found evidence of the beginning of agriculture. From this point on in history we have found out from studying human remains that we began to have tooth problems, bone problems and hardening of our arteries.
We were in a period where our food supply changed, which happens regularly in nature, and we discovered that we could start growing plants that gave us a high amount of calories, and that could be stored, but were nutrient deficient and even contain things called “anti-nutrients” which rob our body of nutrients.
This was the turning point in history where we moved form eating a very large variety of foods, because we were hunters and gatherers, to a dramatically reduced variety of foods. This is because when we started growing food and keeping livestock, we would only eat what plants we were growing or the animals that we learned how to domesticate. Variety of foods means a broader amount of nutrients.
