Food Science and the Human Body

What we eat is central to our daily lives, as well as in our past. People have always been intricately tethered to the food that they eat. In fact, subsistence has been linked with not only watershed moments in human intrapersonal evolution, such as brain expansion and cooperation, but also pivotal moments in the world’s interpersonal history. Armed with multiple lines of evidence, this course will tackle some of the most pressing questions in the transcendence of the human diet, while highlighting exciting scientific hallmarks. From the politics of food production to the patterns of contemporary disease, prepare yourself to be amazed.
