Do you think...

A. Our ancestors did experience illness or B. Our ancestors did not get sick

The correct answer is...

A. Our ancestors did experience illness 

However, they didn't suffer from the same illnesses as those that affect us, like high blood pressure or obesity. 

Our ancestors had considerable knowledge of nature's resources. They used certain plants for cauterization, and others to treat stings. They may also have used soft rocks like clay as remedies.
