I've got it, said Oliver. "If you want a perfectly healthy subject, you must apply to someone else." 鈥淪in aliquem infandum casum, Fortuna, minaris; But the big mystery continued to be food. Judging by the Godzilla-like growth of our heads,Lieberman could pinpoint the exact moment when the caveman menu changed: it had to be twomillion years ago, when apelike Australopithecus鈥攚ith his tiny brain, giant jaw, and billy-goatdiet of tough, fibrous plants鈥攅volved into Homo erectus, our slim, long-legged ancestor with thebig head and small, tearing teeth perfectly suited for raw flesh and soft fruits. Only one thing couldhave sparked such a dramatic makeover: a diet no primate had ever eaten before, featuring areliable supply of meat, with its high concentrations of calories, fat, and protein.
