The interaction between human biology and culture, and human impact on the environment are discussed is this eye-opening video. It begins with a discussion of human life history from birth to senescence. The biocultural evolution of dietary patterns is demonstrated with an emphasis on the ancestral diet and the influence of agricultural practices on modern diets. The impact of these changes on human health is also discussed. Finally, Melvin J. Konner takes a look at human interaction with other organisms and the environment. He touches on antibiotic resistance, pollution, habitat destruction and the loss of biodiversity, mass extinctions, and global warming, and how we can take steps to reduce human impact on the earth.
