    Biggest thing people forget about this is people actually live significantly longer now and are significantly more healthy for longer thanks to more varied, balanced diets, better health care etc.
    People say the paleo diet was better. In some ways it was but they also had long periods of poor diet, ate scavaged meat, rotting grains etc. 40 was considered very old, many suffered from conditions such as brittle bones etc due to poor diets, and often dental health wasn't the best.
    Not saying it is bad just heavily romanticized. Good if you can just go to your local health food shop and buy whatever you want but look at early photos of various indigenous peoples and, to my untrained eye, they didn't appear in the best of health.
    Just my tuppence worth. Let the flaming begin.....
