What do you think of Nora Gedgaudas assertion that vegetables and soluble fiber were optional for our ice age predecessors, but are needed for an ongoing detox to deal with modern environmental exposures?

I read that book and sold it without reviewing it because it wasn't really bad or good enough to be worth reviewing. It's not very scientific, though it pretends to be by using fancy words and concepts. I looked on Amazon to see where she mentions soluble fiber and she mentions it on page 178, where she says that the Inuit and Ice Age humans ate almost no fiber (wrong) but that their antioxidants and phytonutrients are more important to use than ever. No reference or scientific argument is provided so I can't really comment, but if you search for antioxidants here you will find that they are quite controversial.
