How bout this explanation... early humans were always hungry (kinda like how grandmothers are always cold and 
never know what time it is. Only different.). If milk & eggs were good enough for the other animials to eat, 
they were probably good enough for us early humans to eat.

Now whoever invented (or discovered?) beer, now that lad be a true genius :)
