Answer "Cooking alters food in three important ways. It breaks starch molecules into more digestible fragments. It "denatures" protein molecules, so that their amino-ac…id chains unfold and digestive enzymes can attack them more easily. And heat physically softens food. That makes it easier to digest, so even though the stuff is no more calorific, the body uses fewer calories dealing with it." "The archaeological evidence for ancient cookery is equivocal. Digs show that both modern humans and Neanderthals controlled fire in a way that almost certainly means they could cook, and did so at least 200,000 years ago. Since the last common ancestor of the two species lived more than 400,000 years ago fire-control is probably at least as old as that, for they lived in different parts of the world, and so could not have copied each other." Quoted from http://www.economist.com/science/displayStory.cfm?story_id=13139619 The American Association for the Advancement of Science Feb 19th 2009 | CHICAGO From "The Economist" The evolutionary role of cookery
The oldest generally-accepted evidence for controlled use of fire by humans dates to around 700,000-800,000 years ago and is from the site of Gesher Benot Yaacov in Isra…el. There are claims for earlier use of fire dating back to 1.4-1.8 Million years ago from sites in East and South Africa, but these are somewhat less convincing, -isolated burnt bones or burnt sediment patches that could just as well be results of natural fires. Current thought on the main evolutionary benefits of cooking plant foods is that exposure to heat can break up toxins (many of which have long molecular chains) that make some foods difficult for humans to digest. Cooking can also make hard foods softer (e.g., tubers), allowing for easier chewing and digestion. Cooking meat also kills bacteria and parasites. Among paleoanthropologists, the most popular theory about the origin of cooking is that it was linked to selective pressure for enlarged brains among younger hominins. The brain is an expensive tissue and increasing the quantity and quality foods available to juveniles may have enabled those among them with a genetic propensity to encephalization (developing large brains) to realize their potential. Undoubtedly it was more complicated than this, but that is the short version. Fire is also useful in keeping potential predators at bay, particularly at night, and it is conceivable that early hominins started messing around with fire for defense long before it ever occurred to them to cook anything.
Depends whether you are cooking children or adults females are more tender Cook it like you would cook beef. This link will help you prepare the animal f…or cooking: http://www.churchofeuthanasia.org/e-sermons/butcher.html Good luck=)
Boiling them has the best taste but the most common way is frying them on a grill tho that leaves out most of the nutritional value.
200 000 yrs ago
At the begining of caveman time
Humans began to cook because long long ago there was no food so they had to find grass,plants and water to make something to eat that's why they began to cook ok :) every1 kno…ws that if u don't u r lozers :p lol!!!!!!!! just jokeing lol!!!!! i love Justen bieber!!!!!!!!! lol:p
Yes. By being able to cook and produce various foods, the risk of getting sick decreased and allowed for larger populations. This means larger genetic diversity for evolution.…
Don't cook them when they are still alive. If you take a chef's french knife and put where the tail and the body come together and insert and cut down through head...it kills …them almost instantly...yes, I know, crude, but consider the alternative.
Most humans choose to cook their food because it prevents them from getting certain illnesses however not all illness/diseases from your food. For example most people choo…se to cook their food for a couple of reasons; because they like it and think it tastes better that way and/or because it kills a majority of the bad bacterias if you are at a high enough temperature. However not all things need to be cooked and when people are down to the life or death choices for example: they can't cook it or make a fire or something, ect. they will most likely take the risk and eat it to survive while others may not eat it and unfortunately die or starvation or malnourishment. Cooking food also breaks down the food to make the nutrients more easily absorbed by the digestive system. Example: Eating uncooked wheat would result in almost no nutritional benefit.
Cooking is useful to human because cooking is an element that people actually do to their Daily life because cooking is part of our life... We actually do this so that we ca…n eat our foods.. because if we don't cook our foods we don't have any energy to do the daily task and We All know that Everybody eats delicious food, if we don't cook food people had nothing to eat but only fruits and vegetables.
You make 40 times the amount of food you would make for a single serving.
Fry it in grease from the human you killed to get the eye, and if you prefer some extra taste, add other bodily fluids as well, such as blood and semen. Top it off with a …little sprinke of koréans. Serve hot.
1 pound pig ears, cleaned (about 4 whole ears) 12 cups water 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, peeled and sliced 1 yellow onion, chopped 1 large carrot, chopped 2 stalks celery 1…/4 cup white vinegar 1/2 cup soy sauce Rinse ears in cold water. Combine ingredients in large pot and bring to simmer. Simmer over low heat for about 2 hours or more until ears are tender. Remove ears from liquid and cool in refrigerator. When cold, slice into thin strips and reserve.
yeah sure in the 90 now were in 20
Lenape people ate fruits, nuts, berries, corn, beans, squash, andmeat.
