Dietary Advice From Our Ancestors and the Citing of the Convenient
Breaking news: For those of you looking for a convenient compliation of rationale for why you don’t eat meat (for your inevitable run ins with adamant omnivores), Your Vegan Fallacy Is put together an excellent page that responds to the rising popularity of the Paleo diet. The fallacy in question?

He goes on to compare the dietary implications, and how heart disease plays into this research and skews the results heavily in the favor of our evolutionary ‘backbone’ being set in an environment where our diets, for the vast majority of our time here, were almost certainly composed of plants.
