The Evolution of Human Nutrition
Tracing the evolution of the human diet from our earliest ancestors can lead to a better understanding of human adaptation in the past and may also offer clues to the origin of many health problems we currently face, such as obesity and chronic disease. This new series from UC San Diego’s Center for Academic Research and Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA) focuses on the changing diets of our ancestors and what role these dietary transitions played in the evolution of humans.
