Wild game has CLA, too

CLA, a type of healthy fat found in the meat and milk of ruminants, is found in wild game as well, according to researchers Larry Cordain and Bruce Watkins. They discovered that CLA levels are especially high in the bone marrow. This finding is significant because there is evidence to suggest that our hunter/gatherer ancestors sought out bone marrow to add calories and fat to their lean diet. Thus, although CLA is new to modern science, it may have played a key role in human nutrition for eons.
