For more than six million years humanity evolved on one particular form of nutrition, sometimes called the Paleolithic diet. Almost our entire genome was designed in response to that nutrition and the environment in which it grew. Then a little over 10,000 years ago the advent of agriculture began to make fundamental changes in our food. From that time the gradual development of agriculture, animal husbandry and food processing, distorted the nutritional make-up of almost everything we eat. Recent food technology has presented us today with a vast selection of edibles that bear no relation to our ancient nutrition. These foods do not suit human biology one little bit. This book shows you that the ideal nutrition is the food on which our genome evolved. The closer we get to that today, the better our health and performance and the longer our life.
