WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 6:00 PM
From the Stone Age diet plan to Paleo workouts, our culture is rife with pseudo-scientific fads based on a time when we supposedly were more "in sync" with nature. Marlene Zuk dismantles this nostalgia and argues that evolution yields neither perfection nor a final product.
Lectures and programs at the Harvard Museum of Natural History are open to public and are held at 26 Oxford Street, Cambridge.
