Vegetarians may not like this article but the switch to high levels of plant foods didn't occur until the neolithic with the advent of agriculture. Before then human beings hunted, scavenged, and ate a lot o shellfish and other marine life.

Probably ate whatever they found, imagine a lot of bugs early on.

I don't think vegetarians and vegans are going to be discouraged because of this article, nor should they be.
