Cooking For Longer Than We Thought ...

Skull

According to this article in the Guardian, our predecessors probably took to the fire with their catch and kill far earlier than we previously thought. Though the piece cites the nutrient value of cooked food leading to evolutionary traits like smaller teeth and bigger brains, the glutton in me probably thinks these early beings pursued cooking not for the sake of genetic superiority, but rather, it simply made the rabbit taste better.

So does this mean my tiny teeth is indicative of my big brain?
