Other studies have also shown that the discovery of the benefits of cooking meat led to an increase in our brain size, and pretty much every development that came after (ie. agriculture and society, probably in that order).Are we natural omnivores though?
I honestly don't know for sure but I recall a lot of information suggesting that our teeth, and digestive system are that of a herbivore.
