Edinburgh Science Festival - Dinner with Darwin
Our primate ancestors were vegans and our closest relatives, the great apes, have a largely vegetarian diet. So why have humans moved away from living on a diet of plants alone? How did evolution change our eating habits and why do we now cook our food? Evolutionary ecologist Prof Jonathan Silvertown provides the answers to these and other digestive puzzles.
