Musiba findings shedding new light into evolution of human physiology and brain development

Musiba findings shedding new light into evolution of human physiology and brain development

Anthropology professor Charles Musiba unearthed skull fragments of a 1.5 million year old child in Tanzania showing that our ancient ancestors ate meat earlier than suspected. The finding gives rise to the theory that high protein meat diet expanded the brain and gave rise to modern humans. The study was published October 3 in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS ONE.
