When people were still nomads they were generally gatherers but when people settled down and built permanent homes, it became impractical to still be gathering and it was most likely more convenient for them to grow their own foods. As population grew the more necessary it was to have farms, and the more farms there were to support the ever growing amount of people in an area.

What effect did the ability to produce food have on early man?

Food production allows much higher population growth because humans no longer have to rely on the food that they can scavenge or hunt. Provided that harvests do not fail (and they often do), food production allows a much more stable source of food than the hunter-gatherer lifestyle, where individuals will often have to go without food for long periods. It also requires smaller numbers of people to produce the food, meaning that other members of the community can be devoted to different tasks.

How can food be harmful to man?
