What kinds of meals did Neanderthals eat? It turns out theyate a wider variety of foods than scientists used to thinkthey did?including an early version of SUSHI.
Caves in Gibraltar that they once lived in reveal that theyate seals, dolphins and mussels.
In BBC News, Jonathan Amos quotes researcher Chris Stringeras saying, "These Neanderthals were skinning anddismembering seals. What's interesting is that they didn'talways cook them; they often ate them raw..."
Researchers now know the Neanderthals were right: fish iseven BETTER for you than they thought!
Amid concerns about thesafety ofeating fish is the fact that the omega-3 fatty acids foundin fish may help lower the risk of cognitive decline andstroke in healthy older adults.
A new study found that people who ate broiled or baked tunaand other fish high in omega-3 fatty acids three times ormore per week had a nearly 26% lower risk of having thesilent brain lesions that can cause dementia and strokecompared to people who did not eat fish regularly. Eatingjust one serving of this type of fish per week led to a 13%lower risk.
But fish sticks won't do it: researcher Jyrki Virtanen says,"While eating tuna and other types of fish seems to helpprotect against memory loss and stroke, these results werenot found in people who regularly ate fried fish," so theNeanderthals were doing it the right way!
