  • How Do You Know if You Are Lactose Intolerant?

    How Do You Know if You Are Lactose Intolerant?




    When you eat dairy products, the body receives milk sugar - lactose. To break it down, a special enzyme is produced — lactase. It breaks down sugar into two parts — glucose and galactose, which enter the blood.

    The gene responsible for the production of this enzyme is found in almost all peoples who, due to their history, were engaged in cattle breeding and consumed dairy products.

    For example, more than 90% of Dutch, Swedish, and Australian people

    Diabetes in Human Evolution: the Deep Roots of a Disease of Civilization



    Today one in eleven adults in the world suffers from diabetes, while half of the cases are not even diagnosed. The number of patients has tripled over the past 20 years and could reach 700 million in the coming years.

    The reasons why this previously rare non-communicable disease is spreading around the world like a pandemic, according to scientists, should be sought in the distant history of mankind

    I wonder what served as a source of protein for an ancient man. Among other things, they ate insects, which many peoples feed on to this day, and slugs.

  • Neanderthals Became Smart Thanks to a Low-carb High-fat (Keto) Diet

    Neanderthals Became Smart Thanks to a Low-carb High-fat (Keto) Diet





    Thanks to the discoveries of recent years, it turned out that Neanderthals are not a dead-end branch of evolution – the genome of most modern people contains from two to four percent of the genes of Neanderthals.

    For example, we inherited archaic variants of the genes that contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes, which helped Neanderthals to survive with a poor diet, as well as genetically determined protection against retroviruses, including viruses
