I tried the bonobo diet for three weeks, and all I got was a giant red arse. Sad!
Oh that makes sense thanks to you and @SpokeyHigh co2 from breath holding.. or less oxidative damage from oxygen. The nile crocodile and dolphins have a lengthy life too, also, both hold their breath regularly. The elephant has a long trunk creating a massive dead space of co2. I'm probably wrong, as that's an extremely oversimplified guess.
Oops! Sorry! Didn't see @Spokey comment
You must have been on the baboon diet by mistake! They eat fruits too, but also have a penchant for PUFA-laden seeds. That will be the source of the unfortunate side-effect you mention.
Yeah, me too, Nathan. I figure the best any of us can do at this point is to trust our own experiences. All I took from the quote I posted is that having access to vegetation year round is a good thing. :)Im really at a point where so much science is biased that I dont know what to trust. Apparently even Jane Goodall thought chimps were peaceful after years of study. I think there is still a lot more research to be done before conclusions can be made.
I think this is true, i have also read that fetal stem cells can migrate from baby to mother during pregnancy. I have experienced something that felt like this in one pregnancy in particular interestingly this is the one where i bled a little very early on thinking i might miscarry but didn't. I felt and looked incredibly much better than i ever have and this wasn't simple pregnancy glow it was as if my body was reset somehow. In any case this could also be a reason why mothers with several children live longer as well.These are very interesting points. Peat's thought on the naked mole rat was the high CO2 levels, but the studies I posted on the ants suggest that it is the social organization that keeps these animals from aging. Ironically, that same social organization is what seems to tell them to die suddenly when no longer needed. In humans it has been shown that survival and recovery from heart attacks is determined primarily by feeling a sense of purpose - i.e. if there is something to live for. Women who have a high number of children and then go on to help with rearing a large number of grand children often live 20+ years longer than their peers.
And there is TOO much ironi dont remember resources i got those numbers but , as i searched again now , there is various numbers , low to high!

Now translate this to the genetic evolution that happens based on those "malnourished" circumstancesTheir diet, which is similar to the usual chimpanzee diet in most respects—fruit, leaves, a bit of animal protein when they can get it—differs in one signal way: Bonobos eat a lot of the herby vegetation that is abundant in all seasons—big reedy stuff like cornstalks and starchy tubers like arrowroot—which offers nutritious shoots and young leaves and pith inside the stems, rich in protein and sugars. Bonobos, then, have an almost inexhaustible supply of reliable munchies. So they don’t experience lean times, hunger, and competition for food as acutely as chimpanzees do. That fact may have had important evolutionary implications."
