meat....

I was going to include this book a while ago - it's called Meat-eating and Human Evolution, and was reviewed here in New Scientist (you may need to register to read the review, which is why I've included seperate links): "Fossil evidence of meat-eating is picked over, as is the difficulty of finding a suitable model for ancient carnivores. Were the ancestors more like dogs, pigs or lions? Were they scavengers, opportunists or outright killers?".

I decidided to include it now as another meat story had caught my eye - "There's a good chance your grocer's meats are tainted with bacterial germs that are relatively invulnerable to antibiotics, a trio of new studies finds. As a result, anyone sickened by these microbes could find the arsenal of drugs available to fight their infection small to nonexistent" (from Science News). I remember not that long ago that the idea of there even being a "politics of food" was contentious - now food politics are right in the middle of the mainstream agenda.
