Our Brains Are Shrinking

We humans are very proud and fond of our large and complex brains. We perceive ourselves as a lot more intelligent than other organisms here on Earth. Some people, including many creationists, would probably go as far as to say that we tower above all other organisms, seeing as we have a unique ability to […]

I’m a Nutritionist. I Wholeheartedly Support Pete Evans

Chef Pete Evans, one of the hosts of the popular TV show My Kitchen Rules (MKR), is under fire. He has been for quite a while. The Dietitians Association of Australia (ADA), journalists, and some medical doctors are lashing out against him, bashing his ideas about nutrition and healthy living. They use every weapon they […]

It’s All Connected

I realise that the title of this article might seem like it’s taken straight out of a book about supernatural phenomena or religion and divine forces. It doesn’t sound very scientific. In science and medicine, different things and phenomena are typically studied in isolation. In its totality, the world around us is too complex and […]

You’re Heading in the Wrong Direction Mr. Zuckerberg

Quite recently I put up an article here on the site entitled Why Mark Zuckerberg’s Mission to “Cure All Diseases” is Somewhat Misguided. In that post I made the case that the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the organization that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife founded together, is built on a flawed premise. Mark Zuckerberg […]

Your Microbiome Controls Your Life

Are you in complete control of your life? Take a moment and think about this question. If you’re honest with yourself, you’ll find that you’re left with no other choice than to acknowledge that you’re not in complete control of your life. If you were to lose a loved one, the company your works for […]

Mainstream Medicine Overlooks the Two Major Causes of Chronic Illness

Scientific research carried out over the past couple of decades has shown that dysbiosis (microbial imbalance) and inflammation are at the root of numerous diseases and health problems, including acne vulgaris, colon cancer, chronic depression, and autoimmune conditions such as type-1 diabetes (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8). Dysbiosis and inflammation can develop secondary […]

Mismatch Resolution: The Future of Medicine

The human body is an amazing structure. Unlike what some creationists claim, this structure was not created and put here on Earth in its present form by some divine force; rather, it was sculpted by evolutionary forces over billions of years. Over time, its various constituents have changed in form and function as a result […]

How Darwinian Medicine Can Transform Human Health – An Interview With Iver Mysterud (PhD)

I’ve made the case many times here on the site that a widespread incorporation of evolutionary health principles into our medical system could transform the health of contemporary Homo sapiens. I’m not the only one who holds such a belief. Several other health practitioners and researchers do as well. Today, I’m talking with one such […]

The 6 Reasons Why Diseases Exist

Why do we get sick? Why aren’t organisms such as ourselves designed in such a way that they are resistant to disease? If you head into your GP’s office and ask your doctor about these things, he will likely tell you that there are no good answers to these questions and that each individual disease […]

12 Infographics That Explain Why We Get Sick

My impression is that the vast majority of people view medicine as a confusing and very complicated field. They don’t know much about human biology, physiology, or evolution and have been led to believe that there doesn’t exist such a thing as a conceptual framework or model that can explain why we get sick. This […]
