Im not so sure u can seperate these so quickly and easily. Evolution is
an ongoing process.. and big cities, and regular diets are part of it.
One of teh ways we, as a species have minimized the type of evolution u
are looking for by developing social forms which protect individuals with
weaker eyes,different breeding and/or eating habits, or whatever....
The indutrial revolution is as much a part of teh story of the
development of human intelligence as the increase in brain pan size over
a certain period of time.
