Yes, people ate meat, but they were not eating the amounts of meat we consume today. If you look at different cultures from around the world, those who eat a lot less meat have much lower rates of heart disease and cancer. Cholesterol, one of the main culprits of heart disease is only found in animal products. Plant based foods contain all the nutrients that help prevent many diseases. We definitely consume far too many of them.
