Ancestral Health – an evolutionary perspective on modern health challenges

What can we learn from our ancestors about how to optimize and improve human health? Are some of our modern chronic diseases created by the mismatch between the conditions in which humans evolved and our present agriculture and technology rich world? In this podcast, Michael Ostrolenk explores these questions (and more!) with the co-founders of the Ancestral Health Society (AHS), Aaron Blaisdell, Ph.D. & Brent Pottenger, MHA.
