Christina Warinner is an evolutionary biologist and anthropologist who specializes in understanding the ways in which humans have co-evolved with environments, diets, and pathogens — research which allows us to better understand health and disease.  Her research draws on the methods and theoretical frameworks of several fields, including: molecular biology, archaeology, archaeogenetics (ancient DNA), stable isotope-based paleodietary and paleomigratory analysis, archaeobotany, and zooarchaeology.  Watch above as Warinner presents her TED Talk which effortlessly destroys the bad science behind the paleo diet fad — all in less than 20 minutes.
