An update on our origins

About eight years ago I wrote a section in “The OmegaRx Zone” on the origins of our species. At the time it was becoming known that genetically every human on the face of the earth had extremely similar genes. In fact, the size of that genetic pool was only about 1,000 individuals. I wrote that one of the factors that let this small group of our ancestors conquer the world may have come from the fact that they blundered onto eating “brain food” in the form of large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.
