"We can cure hundreds of ailments, but we understand remarkably little about why diseases exist at all. Why do we crave the very things that make us sick? Why, after thousands of generations, hasn't natural selection eliminated cancer, schizophrenia, and other scourges and evolved us into perfect human beings?" "Such questions are at the heart of the new discipline called Darwinian medicine, which applies the principles of evolutionary biology to the problems of medicine. The result of a unique collaboration between the chief architects of this new science - a groundbreaking Darwinian physician and one of the pioneers of modern evolutionary theory - Why We Get Sick offers a whole new set of scientific questions and suggests new ways of understanding illness." "Finding evolutionary explanations for why we get sick - infectious agents that evolve faster than we do, environmental novelties, genes that are selected despite the fact that they cause disease, defenses, design compromises, evolutionary legacies - can help us uncover new, more effective methods of treatment. It can help resolve medical quandaries - for example, when is it best to let a fever run its course and when best to bring it down with medication? It offers a new view of disease that changes the relationship between our bodies and ourselves." "Why We Get Sick takes the first major step toward reconceiving medicine as we approach the twenty-first century. Incorporating an evolutionary perspective into our understanding of illness will revolutionize the art and science of medicine and enable its practitioners to come close to achieving its ancient goals: To cure, sometimes. To help, often. To console, always."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved… (lisätietoja)

This is a well written book that takes a look at why people get sick from an evolutionary perspective. This book is easy enough to understand without requiring a medical/biology degree, but not so simplified that it assumes the readers are have the attention span of a gnat and the intelligence of an amoeba. This is a meat and potatoes type of book compared to the bowl full of lettuce books that seem to be common in the popular science genre these days.

I do however wish the authors would update this book to include any additional information discovered/hypothesized in the last 20 years, but what they cover is still relevant and very interesting. ( )

Excellent introduction to Darwinian medicine, with good examples of how an evolutionary perspective adds to our understanding of the origins of disease. While medicine usually focus on the "proximate causes" of disease (such as viral or bacterial agents, or inflammatory processes), we can learn much from also examining the "ultimate" or evolution-derived causes, which would include our genetic inheritance formed by mutation and natural selection, and especially by mismatches between our current resource-rich environments and the "environment of evolutionary adaptation" of our paleolithic ancestors.

Note that while the Kindle edition is (c) 2012, the book was published in 1996 and has not been revised. ( )

Slightly dated, yet interesting read on approaching medicine with a view based on Darwinian science. Authors do a good job taking topics normally covered in freshman biology and expand on them to make them more readable. Authors frequently mention Margie Profet who is interesting to read about in her own regard. ( )

Offers fresh and illuminating ideas about disease, allergy, parenting, sex, and civilisation, all in the context of modern evolutionary theory. ( )
