17 September 2014:
‘Healthy ageing with a paleolithic diet’
Contents of the public lecture
Our genes have been adapted to our environment, including our diet, through millions of years of evolution. Many, if not all, of the current diseases of civilisation result from the mismatch between our present environment and our paleolithic genome. Kuipers will address these differences and discuss the most important discrepancies between our present and our ancient diet.
Background dr. Remko Kuipers
Remko Kuipers is not only a doctor and pharmacist, but especially a researcher. He was the first Dutchman to obtain a doctorate in evolutionary medicine, the science thatengages in the relationship between evolution, lifestyle (including nutrition) and health. For his doctoral research he lived among the hunter-gatherers of Africa, Asia and Central America. Dr. Kuipers is the author of the successful book ‘Het oerdieet’, in which he explains why we should all eat like our ancestors.
