The evidence is converging from nutritional science as related to historical disciplines (see above). It is of further import as the first practical application of Evolution ... offering a new plateau of health to early adopters.

"The joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift."
Albert Einstein

If you learn to simulate the nutrition of what the human diet has been through 99.9% of our evolutionary history, there is converging scientific evidence that it leads to a new plateau of health. It alleviates, or drastically diminishes: diabetes, cardio-vascular disease, arthritis, many auto-immune diseases, "metabolic syndrome", osteoporosis, rickets, poor health in older age, obesity, most all "chronic diseases", "diseases of civilization", asthma, acne, and more. (Some of the above terms are overlapping, but mentioned for the reader's convenience.)

Think of it as the ultimate natural diet - one in which you consider our long evolutionary history as a major factor in determining what a natural diet for the human body is ... and isn't. Our genes, physiology, and metabolic system have not had enough time to change from that of our hunter gatherer ancestors. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors (and still existing hunters and gatherers on their traditional diets) rarely, if ever, have had these health problems. The earliest farmers also did not. Furthermore, and not coincidentally ... wild mammals are also void of these problems - while their domestic cereal grain-fed counterparts (e.g., dogs, cats, and cattle) ... are not.

Some of these human ancestral groups were very plant food oriented (up to 85% plant foods), but others were very animal food oriented (up to 90% animal foods). Nearly all (>95%) well-recorded complying groups consume at least 25% from their minor animal/plant constituent. The key point - our genes and physiology were shaped by omnivorous hunting and gathering - having changed only an infinitesimal amount since.

Join the happy and healthy early adopters of optimal evolutionary nutrition ... for a new plateau of human health! human nutrition evolution and health

The Human Evolution Diet explains the emerging scientific concept of optimal human evolutionary nutrition. Within half a day's study you can comprehend and enact this exciting new nutritional paradigm - which has been gaining credits for over 50 years now. The book also discusses the history of the concept up through the latest manifestations, most notably "paleo diets". These are based on copying our best interpretation of Paleolithic Age nutrition. However, the Human Evolution Diet puts the thesis within a more fully scientific framework, explaining the prehistoric context more comprehensively ... and questioning whether the "Paleolithic" is the proper time descriptor for optimal human evolutionary nutrition. Many supporting articles by doctors and university professors are cited and easily accessible.
