← Did Cooking Make Us Human?

Plasma Engineer's Avatar Jump to comment 9 by Plasma Engineer

So they claim (with some evidence, but only in Horizon's normal desperately slow and repetitive way) that cooking leads to larger brains and smaller guts. Assuming that this is true (and this is only my assumption) might this be involved in a human preference for slimmer figures, as carried to extremes in the fashion industry. (Or maybe I'm just justifying an admiration for intelligent women . . . who happen therefore to be slim!)

Would anyone like to join me in a petition for Horizon to produce a 15 minute condensed version of each of their programmes. Then those of us with an IQ higher than Homo Erectus could digest it more quickly?
