John McDougall MD describes a recent archeological discovery in Turkey where researchers concluded Roman gladiators ate a vegan diet.


This is a short excerpt from Dr. McDougall's fascinating talk THE STARCH SOLUTION at the Healthy Lifestyle Expo 2009. 

In his talk, Dr. McDougall gives example after example from the historical record showing that all successful cultures thrived by subsiting on a largely starch-based diet. And he presents the biological case that humans evolved to live on starchy foods for optimal health.

To quote that old vegan gladiator, general Maximus Decimus Meridias, "At my signal, unleash hell!"
