In this informal talk, Dr. Janet Chrzan will discuss the broad principles and evidence behind our understanding of the evolution of human nutrition, especially in relation to modern diets. She will also discuss how the local food economy, particularly that of the Delaware Valley, can help us to eat a diet that is rooted in evolutionary theory yet supportive of sensible and sustainable farming and health practices.
