Why We Get Sick--The New Science of Darwinian Medicine

Post by Stoic Atheist » Sat Aug 06, 2011 4:12 am

This book by Randolph M. Nesse is a fascinating introduction to evolutionary medicine. It's from '96, but it has a lot of helpful info. Sorry, I'm new to this forum. Don't know how to do a hyperlink:

There's also a good interview with him at richarddawkins.net under the RDF Productions tab.

Enjoy!

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
