Cavemen? WTF?

New York City, from the New York Times:

The New Caveman Lifestyle

I would like to argue that agriculture is crucial to human evolution, and this whole paelo diet is just silly. The hunting and gathering lifestyle was without a doubt an extremely important  point in our history as a species, but reverting back to it at this point in time, especially so out of context, is invalid.

I think it is true that in our current society, bad habits have formed. The entire food industry in the USA is full swing into a terrifying down spiral of processed and engineered “food like substances” (to quote Michael Pollan.) However, I urge the entire human race to look forward to a new evolution (i am not a hippie) which molds our knowledge of agriculture and technology into a responsible and efficient way to feed everyone.

The end.
