I don’t think the average life expectancy was too good before what, 1930? That’s around the time penicillin came. Also, I imagine there’s a good reason puberty starts at 12, as some health problems can happen from childbirth and from the age of 30.
I’m curious if this study has taken a look at different people in other countries today when it comes to bite alignment.
Anthropologists today agree that hunter gatherers were as intelligent if not more so than so-called civilized human beings. That includes the Greeks, who were as pig ignorant as we are. And there's a reason why the golden age is always a reference to the past. By becoming civilized we have lost a well of knowledge of a lot of things. We became divided within and without, violent, repressed beings. But civilized man, and certainly modern man, prides himself on his ignorance. Philosophers like Thomas Hobbes would've liked us to believe that life before civilization was brutish and harsh, while in reality these were all projections and inaccurate observations of tribes who were already on the side of domestication and control.
Today he thinks he's more because he's become a technologically-obsessed entity, seeking desperately to dominate nature with all the terrible and worrisome results. Mankind has become severely autistic; cerebral, technological, and cold. There are people who'd rather spend time around machines, rather than in nature or with warm human beings. That's insane, and a recipe for disaster as we see happening all around us. As psychologist Erich Fromm said, modern man is necrophiliac (love of death or that which is not alive):
Hesiod had divided the humans into golden (people who lived according to the will of the gods that made them), silver (much worse than golden), bronze (even worse than silver, fighting with wooden lances and fighting wars), heroic (the most courageous and just, demi-gods focusing on spiritual and moral values but ultimately destroyed by wars) and the iron, the worst one of all where all of his peers belong, including today's modern age
wtf who is drinking 42 oz. sodas? I get they have the XXL sizes to order but the standard you get with your meal is the medium (which I think is 16-20 oz). I can't imagine most people are up-sizing their meals.
And a 12 oz burger is 3/4 a pound - isn't the most popular burger McDonald's offers the quarter pounder? I wonder where this data is coming from. And where is this popular 3/4 pound burger being sold?
