The Etiology, Prevention, and Treatment of the Diseases of Civilization: A Darwinian Conceptual Framework

I know that a lot of the concepts I talk about here on Darwinian-Medicine.com, such as evolutionary mismatches and biome reconstitution, may seem foreign and complicated to a lot of people. In order to make things more clear and help new readers understand what this site is all about, I’ve created a figure/infographic that explains some of the essential concepts and theories that make up the foundation upon which Darwinian medicine is built.

Darwinian medicine is a broad field that encompasses many theories and principles. This infographic obviously doesn’t cover all of these. However, it should give you a broad understanding of the part of Darwinian medicine that has to do with the etiology. prevention, and treatment of the diseases of civilization.

I hope you like the infographic. Please share it with your friends!
