Do you want to have the same life span as cavemen had?

It is a myth that all cavemen died young. The problem with longevity statistics is they factor in infant mortality, and death rates were high for children and infants. So, the average lifespan for prehistoric man may have been 30 yeats, but that factors in all who died in infancy and childhood. Prehistoric man also lived in a time without modern medicine, and had to face off against predatory animals, lack of shelter, etc.

Now think about how these people eat versus how modern Americans eat. I am no "caveman" dieter, but I certainly believe that eating real, whole foods is much preferable to the processed food/fast food culture that is damaging the health of us "civilized," "modern" people.

According to this guide - Web Link - you have it right Jerry. Cavemen were virtually free of modern disease and died younger because of obviously worse medical care and a harsher environment.
