Primate Change: How the World We Made is Remaking Us

  • This event has passed.

Vybarr Cregan-Reid

Saturday 13th October 18:45 - 19:45 | Northwood House

Come join Vybarr Cregan-Reid for a whistle stop tour of the modern body looking at how the environment we have made is changing us all, inside and out. From the global epidemic of short-sightedness and why our teeth no longer seem to fit in our heads anymore, all the way down to our flattening feet. On the way, explaining the mystery of dropping nutrient levels (even in organic food) and wondering if exercise is really all that good for us. What does the fact there are no chairs in the Bible, the Iliad or Hamlet but 187 of them in Dickens’ Bleak House tell us about what modern life is doing to our DNA; and finally, find out why there’s a 41% chance that your fingers have travelled farther than you have, today.
