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.
