“Degenerative Diseases are Optional:
bodies are designed for life in the Pleistocene. How we know, what is going
wrong today, and what we can do about it.”
Geoff Bond, M.Sc.
Our human origins and the lifestyle and
feeding patterns to which we are still naturally adapted are explored.
The way we live today is in sharp discordance
with this ancestrally hard-wired lifestyle.
This discordance disturbs many physiological
and psychological processes.
The fundamental mechanisms by which these
disturbances give rise to so-called “diseases of civilization” are examined.
The ways in which we can align our lifestyles
today as closely as possible to our Pleistocene-bred natures are presented.
This information is vital to understanding –
and putting into practice – supportive measures to help prevent, or beat
back, diseases like cancer, CVD, diabetes, osteoporosis, diabetes arthritis
As a nutritional
anthropologist, and a London University science post-graduate, Geoff Bond is
one of a small breed of scientists bringing unique insights to human health.
They peer back in time to see how nature forged both our bodies and our minds
to live in a particular kind of way and then to describe how we don’t do it
any more -- and why it matters. Many of our lifestyle habits, some of which we
have been taught to think of as healthy, actually undermine our bodies’
ability to function properly causing illness and disease.
Geoff’s latest book, Deadly Harvest was
published by Square One in March 2007. It encapsulates current thinking on
nutritional anthropology and describes how, by learning the lessons from our
ancient past, we can maximize our chances of enjoying a long “healthy life
expectancy”. Deadly Harvest is heavily referenced, containing some 35
pages of primary source citations.
