GUEST,Anne Croucher BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? (61* d) RE: BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? 31 Aug 04

Sorry Mary, it just doesn't work like that. You can't change the entire nutritional requirements or ability to utilise various foodstuffs within a species, or a community, by that process. You lose the ones unable to cope on the reduced diet, but that doesn't alter the ability of the survivors to eat other foods as soon as they are available.

The scenario of one source of food would be an unlikely one anyway - people were always moving around, even in the days when it was all on foot, and there would always be something edible from another food group turning up to relieve the boredom. OK it was a brave man who said 'I found these eating the leaves, how shall we cook them?' but a really hungry Human will eat anything too slow to get away. Civilised Humans just add salt and heat, and maybe garlic, but the same principle applies.
