  1. The problem isn’t agriculture, it’s industrial agriculture that produces super cheap flour and sugar. Neolithic people didn’t have those things, they’re a product of the post-WWII fertilizer revolution caused by the desire to find a new use for the massive munition industry that had grown up (modern fertilizers and nitrate explosives are basically the same technology).

    I’m also pretty dubious that Paleolithic people ate anything close to the amont of meat as called for by the diet. Hunting is hard and gathering is a lot easier. Modern meat production is possible only because of modern agriculture, which produces cheap animal food.
