<b>Mothers' Milk Reveals Ancient Diets</b><br>

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">April 17, 2007 — Breast milk from women in regions where the first humans likely emerged suggests that Western diets — with their high amounts of carbs, sugars, salts and oils — go against the optimal human diet.<br><br>
That conclusion comes from a new study that also suggests infant formula guidelines, which are based on Western dietary recommendations, need reassessment.</td>

I see a problem with the core premise. Just because some of the oldest human remains have been found on that island doesn't mean that the people living there now are direct descendants. There have been migragrations of peoples in Africa just as in the rest of the world, for millenia.<br><br>
I'm not disagreeing with the premise of a healthier diet, just that the link they're making may not be so valid.
