Medicine Without Evolution is Like Legs Without Feet

Not so long ago I put up an article here on the site entitled Darwin is at the Door Knocking. Will Mainstream Medicine Soon Let Him In?. One of the subheadings in that article is Medicine without evolution is like legs without feet. Shortly after that sentence had popped into my head and I’d written […]

The Big Black Shadow of Big Pharma

Big Pharma looms like a Dementor over our medical system. It effectively eliminates light and happiness and replaces it with darkness and despair. There’s no doubt in my mind that Big Pharma harms millions of people every year, many of whom become permanently ill and die prematurely as a result of their drug use. Despite […]

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 […]

The 5 D’s of Modern Health Care

Over the past decade I’ve spent a significant amount of time reading medical research and thinking about medical-related health problems. One of the things this process has shown me is that our health care system is, by and large, a failure. By definition, the primary job of any health care system is to care 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 […]

Darwin is at the Door Knocking. Will Mainstream Medicine Soon Let Him In?

The vast majority of doctors, nutritionists and other health care professionals possess very little knowledge about evolutionary theory and Darwinian medicine. This is not surprising, considering that most educational institutions haven’t opened their doors to Darwin and his evolutionary baggage. In the 150+ years that have passed since Darwin published his masterpiece On the Origin […]

10 Things Trump Should Focus on Instead of Trying to Make Drugs Cheaper

I don’t pay much attention to politics. All the lies, empty promises, personal attacks, and bureaucracy makes me dizzy, and to be honest, it makes me seriously question human intelligence and intellect. If we were as smart as we think we are, we would surely have found a better way to organize our society, wouldn’t […]

Darwinian Medicine: How Evolutionary Theory Can Help Heal Our Sick Health-Care System

The health of Homo sapiens is failing. Chronic diseases and health problems such as acne vulgaris, cancer, myopia, and heart disease are today so common that they are by some considered to be a natural part of human life. Only a select few live long lives, free of disease. These healthy individuals are often referred […]

How Paleo Could Revolutionize Medicine

My friend Robb Wolf is one of the leading voices in the field of Darwinian/evolutionary medicine. He’s done a great job of bringing science-based information about ancestral health and nutrition out to the public. In my new article, which was just published at his site, RobbWolf.com, I discuss how evolutionary theory could change modern medicine. […]

Why Mark Zuckerberg’s Mission to “Cure All Diseases” is Somewhat Misguided

The other day I was lying in bed scanning through Facebook on my phone. I was bored and didn’t feel like doing anything productive, so I ended up spending a lot more time on the site than I usually do, and I visited several pages that I rarely frequent. One of the pages I stumbled […]
