Description

In this course, we will trace the evolution of human nutrition, and consider how recent changes in diet, exercise, reproduction, and lifespan affect our fitness in the modern world. Modern humans often live in environments that differ fundamentally from the environment in which we evolved, with both positive and negative consequences for health. Lectures will review

1) The basic physiology of human nutrition

2) Human diet in the context of other primates and our hominin ancestors

3) Consequences of under- and overnutrition

4) Special topics including reproduction, lifespan, and the recent obesity epidemic
