Description

Dr. Chris Davidson

Abstract

Humans have been roaming Earth for approximately 4 million years, but only recently have we observed a dramatic epidemic in obesity. What are the causes of this acute health phenomenon? How has history and evolution shaped the current human condition? Do we understand all the forces at work in shaping this pandemic? This talk will examine this critical public health issue through the lens of evolution.
