Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
Modern urban living is fundamentally mismatched with our Palaeolithic genome. We evolved as hunter-gatherers, living off the land in tribal societies. Culturally, society has changed with remarkable speed. Anatomically, however, we remain much as we were thousands of years ago. The dichotomy between the world we currently live in and the one we are genetically, metabolically, physiologically and psychologically designed for is profound.Although there are major benefits in urban living which we all enjoy, there are also costs, such as the 'urban lifestyle' diseases - type 2 diabetes, coronary illness, autoimmune disease and so on - that have become depressingly familiar. By adopting proxy behaviours that simulate a Palaeolithic hunter-gatherer lifestyle and an environment in which such conditions were rare or non-existent, you could extend your life, make your town a better place and save the NHS! This book will be warmly welcomed by all humanity (unless you are a car manufacturer, sugar producer or high-rise architect) and in particular to anyone interested in living a more evolutionary, concordant life.
