New Study Shows Early Humans Didn’t Eat Meat

  • They examined human and animal bones of the corresponding period found in South-Eastern Poland.
  • For the first time ever, it was able to combine the data from archeo-botany with the isotope analysis.
  • The only time anyone ate meat was to survive, and only when a plant-based diet was not available.

Polish scientists have established that historically, our predecessors didn’t rely on meat as a food source. Such determination came via the use of isotope analysis. The results of the analysis showed that the main diet of ancient people in this region was plant food — it made up about half of their diet.

The Journal of Archaeological Science is a monthly peer-reviewed academic journal that covers “the development and application of scientific techniques and methodologies to all areas of archaeology”. The journal was established in 1974 by Academic Press and is currently published by Elsevier.

The other half seemed to consist of dairy products and a very small amount of meat. They examined human and animal bones of the corresponding period found in South-Eastern Poland.

The study was titled “Terrestrial diet in prehistoric human groups from southern Poland based on human, faunal and botanical stable isotope evidence,” and was published in the Journal of the Archeological Science.

This study is very unique since, for the first time ever, it was able to combine the data from archeo-botany with the isotope analysis. A professor stated that:

“Until now, isotopic studies, aimed at the reconstruction of dietary habits was not taken into account archaeobotanical analysis. This means that the picture of the ancient people’s diet was incomplete, some models even showed that they ate mainly meat, and this is actually not the case at all.”

Moreover, the scientists established the main diet consisted of mainly barley and various types of wheat. The domestic animals were used as source of milk, not to be butchered for meat consumption. According to the lead professor of the study, the meat was not a priority period in the Neolithic Animal Husbandry.

Animal husbandry is the branch of agriculture concerned with animals that are raised for meat, fibre, milk, eggs, or other products. It includes day-to-day care, selective breeding and the raising of livestock.

Furthermore, scientists studied the teeth of the ancient people, and confirmed that based on that, their meals consisted predominantly of a plant-based diet. Interestingly, scientists were even able to establish that vegetarian diet was preserved for at list 5 millennia periods. Even analyzing different age groups, they still concluded that no matter what age or gender, the diet remained plant-based.

Additionally, from the book of Genesis, it has been established that humans were originally vegetarians everywhere. The universal vegetarian age continued until the time of the corruption of mankind, before the flood. The degradation of the world that began with the fall of man has also spread to the relations between animals.

However, prominent anthropologists tend to agree that people have moved away from the plant based diet and began to eat meat since the last ice age. The reason behind it was due to fruits and vegetables unavailability. They did not do it out of sheer sick enjoyment, but the means to survive at the time.

The only time anyone ate meat was to survive, and only when a plant-based diet was not available. Now, the world has plunged into sick slaughterhouses and rampant animal murder from trophy hunting to just pure greed and thirst for blood meat consumption.

  1. Great sense of humor. In reality meat is leading contributor to cancer, including Parkinson’s and clogged arteries. Lastly, meat contributes to aggression and many other issues.
