Our body chemistry is several million years old, and until the Agricultural Revolution, it was perfectly adapted to the nutritional environment that sustained it. Today's food habits and sedentary lifestyle have resulted in chronic diseases that did not occur in the Stone Age and that are not found among modern hunter-gatherers. Health Secrets of the Stone Age explains how we can avoid these conditions in a modern environment and remain vigorous and healthy throughout life. Valid scientific principles sustain the author's recommendations regarding safe weight loss, the healthiest food choices, sensible vitamin and mineral supplementation and practical approaches to physical activity.

This book is really enjoyable. It's along the lines of Morse's "Evolution Diet" but has some unique aspects to it. If you're looking for some bizarre wacked-out diet (like some negative reviewers), you're not going to find it here- this is just a number of great tidbits on how they knew what they were doing back when they didn't know what they were doing!
