Humans that comes or descend from Europe have a higher capability to digest dairy product because they started to consume such products in very ancient times.

This suggests a "recent shift" in the microbiota of industrialized humans, 

Yes, no KFC fries. We had that story just the other day.

Agree @Farmboy 1:36pm. Remarkable photo evidence that humans may have taken a “recent shift”:

- “This suggests a "recent shift" in the microbiota of industrialized humans, “… very sophisticated," Maixner told AFP. "something I did not expect at that time." ”beans, millet and barley are clearly visible”

Zichi, no not stupid, it was a humorous comment in an otherwise serious and thoughtful interview, a witty way of expressing an environmentally conscious decision to change the fuel running his favourite car to a sustainably sourced fuel derived from waste wine and the whey from cheese making. Keeping the same car for over 50 years is also a very environmental beneficial thing as the embodied carbon in its production is a massive part of any cars total environmental footprint.

There was trade of this Hallstatt salt for those grains, legumes & beans, presumedly from as far as the Mediterranean cultures found in this 2700 year old poop. - Foundations of capitalism in the Bronze Age, blossoming from thriving agrarian economies, *just before it all went to site* for some unexplained reason?

Trade and capitalism are not the same thing.
