Another disappointing screed of liberal anti-industrial thinking. All diseases of the affluent are due to the poisons in the atmosphere, the food chain, and the exposure of humans, finally, to enough food and the ease of not walking that they are unprepared for by their genetic evolution. Wholegrain bread and vegetables are the answer to all. Very repetitive in his arguments, and very circumlocutatory in his prose. I did enjoy the rapid overview of diseases among hunter-gatherers, but the chapters on prenatal disease and genetics are very dated by the 1986 publication date. ( )
