People, it’s time to get in touch with our roots. We’re going back, like, two million years back. This Thursday through Saturday (8.9.12 – 8.11.12), the Ancestral Health Symposium, an internationally traveling conference on modern health with a primal focus, is taking place right in our backyard at Harvard University. The symposium brings together research scientists, physicians, and health experts to tackle the health challenges of our generation by reconnecting us to the lifestyle of our Paleolithic predecessors. Featured will be some of the world’s leading minds in the realm of Primal living and exhibits by some seriously health-minded companies.
So let out a grunt and pick up your spear because we’re going to caveman school!
On the docket for the weekend are talks titled: “What are Humans Adapted For,” “Home Grown: How Food Policy Councils can Support Urban Agriculture,” “Little Shop of Horrors? The Risks and Benefits of Eating Plants,” “Minding My Mitochondria,” and many more. I don’t know about you, but that taste of what’s to come is getting this newly dubbed nutrition nut all hot and bothered. Unfortunately tickets to this internationally acclaimed event sold out quite some time ago, but here at the Dig, we were lucky enough to have been given access, so I’ll be reporting on all the hunter-gatherer chatter.
