Ancestor diets

  • Our ancestors ate nearly four times the amount of vegetables and fruits as we do today

  • In ancient times fruits were higher in antioxidant content because they were smaller, like blueberries, with more skin, which is where the antioxidants are located

  • The modern American diet has substituted cereal grains for fruits and vegetables, lowering antioxidant intake significantly

  • Interesting huh?
