Podcast: What Our Ancestors Ate and Why It Matters Today

This episode of The Ruminant looks at what and how we eat, compared to our ancestors. Jordan speaks with guest - anthropologist Stephen Le, author of 100 Million Years of Food. Stephen argues that if we want to understand the role of diet in influencing our health, we need to ease off our obessession with nutritional science and focus more on the role of that evolution has played in defining the relationship between what we eat and how we feel. Have a listen!
