Evolution diet for pets. Why not for people? Oh wait, of course that has been thought of before

Yup, that is right.  There are evolution based diets for pets.  Do you think people will use them if they don’t believe in evolution?  Do pets believe in evolution? Is an evolution based diet better than other diets? Actually, for the last question, it seems plausible that evolution informed diets could be of some use, but still seems funny to see it in pet food. 
Why isn’t there an evolution diet for people yet? Oh wait, there is

About Jonathan Eisen

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis

  1. Wild wolves live considerably shorter lives than domestic dogs, so I'm not sure where the logic of “eating evolutionarily” is that favorable to a dog.

    As for human evolutionary diets, besides the same life span as with pets, chimps occasionally engage in cannibalism. Surely that needs to be worked in somehow for the authenticity of the diet.
