Too Much of A Good Thing
How Four Key Survival Traits Are Now Killing UsBook - 2015
"Over the past 200 years, human life-expectancy has approximately doubled. Yet we face soaring worldwide rates of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, mental illness, heart disease, and stroke. In his ... new book, Dr. Lee Goldman presents a radical explanation: the key protective traits that once ensured our species' survival are now the leading global causes of illness and death. Our capacity to store food, for example, lures us into overeating, and a clotting system designed to protect us from bleeding to death now directly contributes to heart attacks and strokes."--Amazon.com.
