Bob talks to Daniel Lieberman, author of The Story of the Human Body: Evolution, Health and Disease. Lieberman is the Chair of the Department of Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University. His book explains how millions of years of evolution have led our bodies to a paradoxical position. People in developed countries are living longer than ever, having vanquished diseases that used to kill people by the millions: smallpox, measles, polio and the plague. But we are also afflicted with more chronic, preventable illnesses and ailments, such as diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers, strokes, dementia, depression and anxiety.
