Our modern human diets are out of sync with our genetic requirements. The less we eat like our ancestors, the more susceptible we are to coronary heart disease, cancer, diabetes…and many other “diseases of civilization”.
100,000 generations of people were hunter-gatherers, 500 generations have depended on agriculture, 10 generations have lived since the start of the industrial age…and only two generations have grown up with highly processed fast foods. Our diet today is substantially different from our evolutionary diet. In other words, our diet today fails to provide the biochemical and molecular requirements of H. sapiens.
