Losing Face...

Oh, Good Gawd.. I hope I don't look like them.. what a choice!!

" The human face is shrinking. research into people's appearance over the past 10,000 years has found our ancestors' heads and faces were up to 30% larger than now"
This from the Sunday Times of london

" changes in diet are thought to be the main cause. The switch to softer, farmed foods means that jawbones, teeth, skulls and muscles do not need to be as strong as in the past. "

Based on the studies of thousands of skulls and bones from sites around the world, Clark Larsen of Ohio State University says that 10,000 yearws ago people would have had heads the shape of Arnold Schwarzenegger or looked like Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall... but, today... the modern example of the ' more delicate form' are Tony Blair and George Dubya...
