New Study Suggests Neanderthals Were More Plant Based

By

Dental DNA analysis of a Spanish group of Neanderthals revealed they only ate plants, according to a paper in the prestigious journal Nature.

One of the researchers, Dr Antonio Rosas, said: “We were surprised not to find any remains of meat in the Asturias Neanderthals, given that they were thought to be predominantly meat eaters. 

“However, we have found evidence they enjoyed a varied diet including a wide range of plants.”

Michael Dearborn covers the story above.
