The Story of the Human Body is Dr. Daniel Liebermans plain spoken but powerful account of how the rise of bipedalism, the shift to a non-fruit-based diet, the advent of hunting and gathering, the rise of agriculture, the industrial revolution and the high tech revolution all shaped the key adaptations that typify the modern human body. If youve ever wondered why modern humans are such a sickly and chunky bunch, Liebermans got a pretty satisfying answer for you. we didnt evolve to be healthy, but instead we were selected to have as many offspring as possible under diverse, challenging conditions. As a consequence, we never evolved to make rational choices about what to eat or how to exercise in conditions of abundance and comfort. Liebermans argument (in a nut shell) is that Humans evolved in an environment that necessitated eating as much as possible in order to build up fat reserves, so that we could either work our asses off to get more food, or lay low during the times when no food was available, all the while pumping out a steady stream of lil papooses. We evolved to be able to stalk and kill wild game in the 100 degree heat, drag that shit back to camp, and start all over again the next time you get hungry. So now fast forward to 2015, when you can take your air conditioned car to the Carls Jr. drive in and get a 3500 calorie meal for seven dollars that took a 350 calorie expenditure to earn. From this perspective its pretty obvious that we are metabolically mismatched for our current environment. This has lead to what Lieberman terms mismatch diseases i.e. diseases that occur simply because our body is not adapted to our world of cushy excess. Mismatch diseases occur due to:1. a surfeit of energy (eating too much). -obesity -diabetes 2. under use (not exercising enough). -osteoporosis -lower back pain Lieberman argues that we often treat the symptoms of these issues and ignore the causes, leading to a state of what he terms dysevoloution, a state of affairs in which disadvantageous traits are nurtured and conserved. In other words, the proper interventions for obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis and chronic lower back pain are behavioral interventions that target the cause of these issues e.g. eating less and exercising more. Lieberman is not naive about what it braucht realistically take to change our behaviors though. To the contrary, hes well aware of how hard it is, mostly due to millions of years of evolutionary conditioning. However, its not hopeless, and the last few chapters propose possible interventions. Liebermans summary argument is; if culture got us in to this mess, than culture can get us antiquiert of it. In Liebermans opinion, the best interventions for mismatch diseases are public health policies that assist us in making better choices. Lieberman joins the likes of Sunstein and Thaler (Nudge) in his endorsement for Libertarian (soft) Paternalism. Libertarian paternalism refers to social policies designed to help people who behave irrationally (against their better interests), while interfering only minimally with people who behave rationally. One obvious example being the laws that regulate cigarette smoking. We tax the crap antiquiert of cigarettes in order to dissuade people from smoking. But we dont make it illegal for adults to smoke, provided they dont do it near people who would prefer to not die of lung cancer. Lieberman proposes similar nudges to inhibit consumption of junk food and encourage exercise. If youre not already convinced, youre just going to have to trust me on this one. This is the users manual for the einzigartig human. Everyone should be equipped with this information. Skip it at your own risk. Five Stars!
