Complete the Paleo Lifestyle with Paleo Air

While often an afterthought among Paleo dieters, implementing and maintaining a complete Paleo lifestyle is equally as important as dieting itself. Not only does this refer to the active lifestyle implemented by traditional hunter and gatherers, but it also means taking in the fresh, therapeutic air consistently throughout your daily life. Luckily, this is one […]

Human Evolution Today

So, how are genes and genetic mutations relevant to understanding human evolution? Scientists agree that the nature of human evolution today is unlike anything in the past. Most notably, the primary determining factors for the reproductive success that Darwin highlighted in his theory for natural selection are now culture and technology because, as previously mentioned, […]

How Terpene Deficiency Syndrome Can Disrupt Homeostasis

Based on the idea that terpenes and environments rich in aromatic secondary metabolites benefit humans, it is logical to conclude that these compounds have been adapted into human evolutionary development as a part of human health. Thus, these compounds are likely directly related to keeping the body well-adjusted to its environment. The secondary metabolites produced […]

History of Evolutionary Thought

330 BCE: Species assumed to be unchanging For most of human history, species were assumed to be unchanging, meaning they were fixed in the same form throughout the history of the species.1 In fact, the Greek philosopher, Aristotle, created the concept of species being arranged in a ladder of increasing complexity known as the “great […]

Genetics and Genetic Mutations

In 2016, researchers at the University of Liverpool identified the mutation event that gave rise to industrial melanism. Ultimately, this event resulted from the insertion of a large tandemly repeated transposable element into the first intron of the gene cortex. Statistical inference places this event as occurring around 1819, making it consistent with the timeline […]

A Primer on Evolution

Humans have advanced faster in the past few centuries than ever before. However, genetically and physiologically, humans remain fairly similar to the Paleolithic societies that coexisted with nature, hunting animals and gathering plants for food. So, humans have significantly advanced but have not yet significantly evolved. Evolution is defined as “descent with modification” or “a […]

The Industrial Revolution

The Industrial Revolution literally changed how societies functioned, and while it brought with it inventions and new possibilities, it also raised many challenges. What is the Industrial Revolution? The Industrial Revolution refers to a period of time when an agrarian and handicraft economy became dominated by machines and mass production, specifically in Great Britain from […]

Breathing City Air and Crime Rates

Polluted city air is one of the contributing factors to deteriorating individual health in cities. However, recent research suggests that the air quality may have an impact beyond its role in contributing to diseases of affluence. Recent British government research shows that reported crime rates are significantly higher in cities than in rural area.1 The […]
