John Durant, Biohacking Caveman

John recently released his first book – The Paleo Manifesto: Ancient Wisdom for Lifelong Health – in which he advocates using evolutionary principles to combat the global epidemic of obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions.

All animals, human or otherwise, thrive when we mimic key elements of our natural habitat. From diet to movement to sleep, this evolutionary perspective sheds light on some of our most pressing health concerns.

On the show we discuss:

  • Apes, OCD and ‘natures’ diet
  • Jewish hygienic codes and modern medicine
  • Great ‘ Experiment‎ ‘ Britain and the industrial revolution
  • Industrial food and health
  • Biohacking your way to health and wellbeing
