How We Really Evolved


With Peter Rhys-Evans

How did Homo Sapiens evolve and what were we eating? Around six million years ago our ancestral line splits from gorillas and chimpanzees with ever-increasing brain size until Homo Sapiens appears over 100,000 years ago. How did this happen? What were we eating and what does this tell us about our own optimum nutrition for brain health and why brain size is actually shrinking. To answer and explore these questions is my next guest, Peter Rhys-Evans, an ENT consultant and author of the Waterside Ape. Join me for the second in my Brainstormers podcast series.
