If you look at the paleo-anthropology evidence from the Dickson Mounds and all the other fossilized records of people around the time when agriculture began 10,000 years ago, the health of humans clearly rapidly deteriorated once we became agrarians.

There’s plenty of evidence to suggest that that agriculture was a really bad thing for us to do.
