I knew it!

050219_brain_vmed_1p_widec I knew that vegetarians were messing something, turns out it is a little bit of their brains!

Scientists have discovered that going veggie could be bad for your brain-with those on a meat-free diet six times more likely to suffer brain shrinkage.

But don't worry too much because, you see, it not just size that matters.

So what was a larger brain good for? What was the evolutionary advantage that propelled our family tree to make more room between the ears? (snip)

The social psychologist Robin Dunbar has even suggested that the higher memory capacity in a bigger brain could have helped early hominids identify freeloaders who were not pulling their weight for the community.

Bigger brains made it easier to spot the hippies, no wonder they all turned vegetarian.
