Default Paleo Diet = Small Brain.

Maybe you should say "raw diet = small brain" since that's what we're really talking about here.

Interesting...wonder how much this plays into the "caloric abundance" that so many people suffer from these days, even while having digestive issues...

It also would seem to explain the physiques of the raw vegans, going the opposite direction...

That does make sense. Cooking allowed man to transport meat around and keep it for a longer period of time. The abundance of protein then spurred brain growth and then we put man on the moon.
