The Cost of Modern Technology in Human Evolution

human evolution

Throughout 2 million years of evolution, humans have been hunting, climbing, lifting, hiking, crawling and being physical for a good part of their waking hours. Thanks to modern technology we no longer need to do all that in order to survive.  But sitting at our desks slouched over bright monitors for 8-10 hours a day isn’t sustainable either. Besides all the processed factory foods this is one of the biggest reasons why chronic disease is on the rise. So get up every hour or so and walk around, do something with your hands, lift something heavy and sprint full speed once in a while and play some sports when you can. Being active lowers stress hormones and lifting heavy and occasional sprinting releases growth hormones that keep you young.  Be active, eat right and worry less and you will have a lifetime of good health.
