Neanderthals May Have Turned to Cannibalism in Attempt to Survive

By pegasus     Dec 5, 2006 in World
Starvation and cannibalism were part of everyday life for a population of Neanderthals living in northern Spain 43,000 years ago, a study suggests.
Study of bones and teeth indicate neanderthals may have been starving and turned to cannibalism in an attempt to survive. They may not have been able to compete with the more modern humans of their age for food and shelter. The findings may help to understand more about the everyday lives of neanderthals.
I found this to be interesting. I guess modern day humans might turn to cannabilism as well if there were no other means of survival and the only alternative was starvation although it's hard to imagine doing so.
