People are increasingly obsessed with meat

Lisan Jutras – Why are humans so obsessed with eating meat?, an interview with Marta Zaraska:

What do you make of the more meat-heavy Paleo diet trend?

There wasn’t just one Paleolithic diet. Some people close to the North Pole ate enormous amounts of meat, while some others, some hunter-gatherer tribes, ate barely any meat at all. Which Paleolithic was more Paleolithic? That’s the first and foremost thing for me. And then why not other times in our species history? We’ve evolved for a very long time, so why Paleolithic? And then next, contrary to what many Paleolithic-diet gurus say, our bodies actually have evolved since the industrial revolution and we are evolving faster than we have evolved before.

What also of cows and pigs vs antelope or buffalo or rabbits and squirrels?
