Humans as carnivores is NOT a long term survival trait, we need certain plant based nutrients (viz Vitamin C) as we can't synthesize our own and well
Scurvy sucks I am told
Yes our ancestors got bigger brains by eating more protein, but that is evolution and not pertinent to day to day survival,
so ifwe went to just animal protein, we'd be in trouble after a few months, BIG trouble.
We are omnivorous, and we were scavengers. Humans became apex predators (THE apex predator now) through technology, and that is late in our history.
We could still be wiped out by disease, asteroids, and most likely ourselves.
