They do emphasize that the modern foods are a minor component of the diet, though. Also reading elsewhere, the Hiwi's ill health generally comes down to infectious disease, not "diseases of civilization." If there's one thing calorie restriction isn't particularly good for, it's fighting infectious disease. They aren't suffering the ills we do, they're suffering high infant mortality, high mortality in childbirth. Also a high level of violent death.
