I'm listening to An Edible History of Humanity by Ted Standage and it is fascinating. I think if I can remember one or two points of a book then it has been worth the time to read/listen to it.
1. Historic hunter-gatherers were healthier than farmers - more variety in their diet meant taller and longer-lived than farmers.
2. India hasn't had a famine since the British left.
3. The use of food as a weapon has been around since the beginning of time, and is the worst weapon there is.
Exhausted but in a good way
