Why are Africans allowing themselves to starve? Humans are carnivores, so why not HUNT for food?
Africa's like a huge zoo, zebras, deer, etc. just make a spear or arrow out of wood or just gang up at the thing and bite and claw at it, just like other primates (don't deny it fellow humans, we're ANIMALS too!)
And I should know...look at my teeth, these four canine teeth that stick out like a dog's means something! and that's because humans are supposed to rip off flesh from a kill.
If I was starving, I'd hunt for my food. I've eaten bugs before, they taste ok, sort of like iron. some taste like white chocolate or cream. and if I saw a deer I'd make a spear out of wood and stone, hit it in the neck, then proceed to eat it. cooking wouldn't be necessary.
