High positive correlation...The question is --I am becoming very suspicious about people removing meat from their meals. It could be my imagination working over time but maybe the lack of red meat might be the cause of many problems we are having in our country.
People began eating meat when they climbed down out of the trees. Everything was chugging along alright. People get the idea of not eating meat and we have riots in the streets and elect vegetables to higher office.
Do they eat less meat because they have become wimpified, or have they become wimpidied because they eat less meat?
Saddly misinformed comment....We are carnivores with ominivorous capabilities. Our immediate ancestors actually bcame scavengers as they first came down out of the trees. (How else do you explain a carnivore with such small fangs & claws?)Humans were first vegans, then vegetarians, then carnivores.
The line of humanoids that were vegetarians (Australopithicines like "Lucy") all DIED OUT.
