The do! They do! And I just learned about it this week on a new PBS
series with Joy S. Reidenberg and Mark Evans.
Most orangs do not survive into late adulthood in the wild, and none
had thoroughly examined with ultrasound and a work-up . When one, who
had been given a c-section many years ago (first time for that, too.
It was done on the isle of Jersey), was recently followed up by the
same human OB/GYN who had done the section, to confirm whether she was
healthy enough to be mated and carry to term, it was discovered that
she was post menopausal. It was news to them all. Big finding.

This part of the whole paleo diet discussion got me to thinking. The
transition was not hunter gatherer to agriculture, there was an
intermediate step. Nomadic herder, which still exists today. It also
brought us milk and yogurt and cheese. I think that milk products are a
much more important paleo diet constituent than is currently popular. By
the same token it takes a more agrarian society to develop eggs as a
common foodstuff. Also the lack of refrigeration means as much meat as
possible was stored as dried products e.g. jerky. Also precooked and
Humans are as successful as we are because we are
omnivorous and not locked into a specific food
source. The pages of extinction are full of those
that were locked into a single food source. So, I
would posit that we ate EVERYTHING! And Grok definitely
did herb animals. And, we only got into trouble when
we got too cleaver for ourselves and came up with
plants with unnatural concentrations of carbohydrates.
The discussion on dairy gets a lot of attention in
Paloe circles. Here is a fascinating paper from Mark
Sisson on the subject. Note that the problems with
dairy are mainly "low fat" dairy. The paper
is well documented:
And, yes, full fat dairy is Paleo.
No, just discussed this with me based on her most recent (graduate
level) evolutionary biology class.
