    I came here from the defence nutrition page about paleo vs warrior diets in defence of the Paleo diet;

    You know, I honestly can't take an article who uses "average life span" to make a point seriously.

    Did you guys know that the average life span of the average American male in 1820 was 39 years?

    Just think about that for a moment.

    Never mind the blatant disregard for the fact that roughly 70% of paleolithic humans didn't survive to sexual maturity, there's an even worse fact that article is ignoring.

    Average neolithic humans life expectancy was 20…
    Wait, what?!
    Twenty years?!

    In fact, it took roughly 10000 years before humans once again hit an average life expectancy of 35 years.

    Don't believe me?
    Head on over to Wikipedia, and paste this in the search bar:
    "Life expectancy"

    You'll note that the value for "Classical Greece", a period famous for the Spartans, which you love posting everywhere apparently, is 28 years.
    While the average for Classical Rome(Vegan supporters favourite era, because gladiators were supposedly fed nothing but vegan diets. They often forget that gladiators rarely lived longer than 6 months in the ring, and were mostly slaves that no one gave a rat's ass about) is 20~30 years.

    By all statistics, Paleolithic humans lived FAR longer than both these civilizations.
    Especially if you consider the fact that far more babies and children died during the upper paleolithic than in either of those two times.

    So before writing an article and using a statistic that includes child and infant death rates into the calculations of average life expectancies, do some number crunching, and eliminate those two rates before you sit down to write your article.

    If you went to that Wikipedia article, you must've noticed this little line:
    "Based on data from recent hunter-gatherer populations, it is estimated that at age 15, life expectancy was an additional 39 years (total age 54)."

    Basically, it means that most humans didn't make it to 15.
    Something that was just as common during Roman times, and in medieval Britain.
