Poor diet only takes a few years off life expectancy, maybe 3. So someone who eats a poor diet may die at 78, someone who eats a healthy diet may die at 81.

Considering all the benefits of our modern diet (free of pathogens, full of micronutrients, prevents famine) I'd say the modern diet by far.

It is 5 steps forward, 1 step back (since the modern diet causes obesity and metabolic disorders).
