Conventional diet wisdom is wrong! Changes in our diets have occurred as a result of the agricultural revolution 7,000 years ago. Unfortunately, the more recent industrial revolution has happened so quickly that our genes haven’t had time to adapt. Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes were virtually nonexistent before we rapidly changed our diets. Our ancestors for more than 2 million years ate meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Grains like wheat and corn, soybeans, and sugar were not part of their diet. The processed foods that we are consuming now only contain food like substances and not nutrients.
