We are the only species on earth who cook their food – and also the smartest species on the planet.

The question is: Do we cook because you are intelligent and imaginative, intelligent and imaginative and we are because our ancestors discovered the kitchen?

BBC Horizon examines the evidence that the diet of our ancestors and change their mastery of fire prompted anatomical and neurological changes that led to us out of the trees and in the kitchen.

Homo habilis was about a meter tall with long arms, swinging – not much to do, apparently, but smart. Habilis had a larger brain (50% larger) than its predecessor, Australopithecus. Was this to your diet?

Does cooking Make Us Human? , A handful of determined scientists set out to discover the extent to which diet plays an important role in the evolution of the human brain, using a variety of devices slightly alarming.

Professor Peter Ungar has a device he calls the Bitemaster 2, a chewing mechanical machine has been equipped with genuine Australopithecine gnashers.

For the first time in three million years left to work on a carrot, with remarkable success, considering.
In the raw meat that is made less skillfully, but the teeth of a human ancestor later – smaller, more acute, “Crestie” – made short work of it.

By the way, I would not get your finger caught in which, as Professor Ungar almost does. “Wait!” He yells to his fellow happy start button.

    Ask Dr Morse what he thinks about this rubbishh!!!

  2. sportydiver says:

    What? They are trying to tell us that we will starve? These people are detoxing now. Do they talk about our digestive track? We are frugavores!! Cancer goes up every time every civilitation started to eat more meat. OHH YAAA the MSM and NWO want to depopulate the world by 90%

  3. pupspepper says:

    the decreease in strength by 5-10 times, the sudden posibilty to speak, the whole different brain and the fact, that we just use a small part of it. but hey there’s more: our bs foot setup in realtion to our so called encesters. and well let’s not forget, that there has never any proof for slow evolution in another species, but hey just repeat it often enough and the people will buy it without question.simply said, thank u for being u.thank u, that u are aware and spread this awarness.

  4. pupspepper says:

    hey beeing on the same track :) bbc makes such a bs, but hey what can u expect from tv.most people can’t understand simple physiology nor will they think for themselfes.it’s a pity. there’s a reason we won’t get ill and we regenerate old weaknesses and it’s simply because we eat the food we are designed for. i mean how much simpler can healing be.and this “docu” of course does not show that humanity does not fit evolution.things like our imense number of birthdefects, rh negativ blood,

  5. timmy sweetz says:

    Lol this is a joke. Google “raw vegan” and specifically check out the 801010 diet or Dan McDonald on youtube. I know it’s a joke because Ive been raw vegan for a year and cured myself of a number of “diseases,” Not to mention I feel amazing.

  6. King Said says:

    Some raw vegans do ok, but realistically, thousands of years ago, or even 50 years ago, you could not go and buy 30 bananas from the super marker to ensure you get enough calories. Large quantites of fruit would of been a rare and seasonal find, along with that fruit wasnt like fruit today, it was alot lower in sugars.You could however of gone out and killed an animal and then ate it. Just as the tribe in the video did. Meat, fruits and vegetables is what we are designed to eat.

  7. lol, lurn 2 english. If you are going to argue about the veracity of something, please make your writing easily readable and use proper grammar. Otherwise, your writing makes you look foolish and you are deemed as not worthy of having your ideas considered.

  8. zarxog says:

    One thing is for sure, this “documentary” is completely unintressing, scientifically. It’s entertainment. Everyone who get their information about our evolution solely from this kind of source should read some litterature instead. This programme is rubisch.

  9. baggytheo says:

    At 52:00 … what else is in the drinks??? Is it just fat emulsified in water? What kind of fat? Are there sugars added for palatability? And she’s just looking at brain scans and making assumptions that correlations with brain activity and the feedings are causative–bad science.

  10. jowiefjiwejf says:

    So Im in the first 10 minutes of this video and all I’ve seen is a conditioned mind telling us what they taught him at the university… Here’s the deal people, I’m going to let everyone in on the big secret of evolution. 1: Yes Darwin was right, if you take a lizard from the mainland and put it on an island, 40 – 100 years later itll change. 2: That is micro evolution. We will all experience Macro evolution, the end of this year, it is spontaneous. Believe what you want, but you’ll see.

  11. Very interesting video, I will however contend that the snake study is junk science. Does it strike anyone else as obvious that the ground, cooked steak took 25% less energy to digest? Perhaps they hypothesized a whole, cooked steak wouldn’t have yielded the results they desired?

  12. ToolsnFire says:

    @marcluc1988 All those diseases occur with over consumption and unbalanced consumption.Meat, eggs, milk are good for us, just as fruits and vegetables are good for us, all in moderation.There will be differences with different people as a matter environment and physical exertion factors.You sound like you’re on the diet cult path, in the vegan direction.Beware, and be in tune with what your body shows you by response to what you consume, your lifestyle, and your environment.

  14. marcluc1988 says:

    @ToolsnFire At the beginning, they claim that what we eat has made us what we are. Notice what they’re eating in that meal: Full of sugar, cholesterol, saturated fats etc. No fruit and veg. Yes! What we eat has made us what we are today: Obese, high risk of heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes etc.

  15. ToolsnFire says:

    @8:00, they’re eating modern fruits and vegetables, not what our ancient species ancestors would’ve eaten, – so the experience of eating would’ve probably been even less enjoyable / more problematic.Yes, some raw proponents will say that the people here need a transitional cleansing period in order to make use of raw plant foods.Unfortunate this sort of in-depth expose wasn’t available back in the 70′s.Tools, making fire, controlling fire, cooking,…and many other things made us Homo sapiens

  16. Meli says:

    WOW!!! I had heard about this site but finally had to come and check it out for mylesf. What a bunch of sad losers! So afraid of Glenn Beck, that you start a website to stop him! How pathetic!! Here is a hint, since you obviously are to ignorant to figure it out for yourselves .turn the channel!!!! Pretty simple huh bet you wish you had thought of it!! Don’t thank me, just change the channel, or better yet, just turn the TV off, and GET A LIFE!!!!
