This text examines dietary evolution since the Paleolithic period, and shows how humans have moved into a modern environment in which individuals are more prone to chronic diseases. This has caused increases over the years in non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, hypertension, coronary artery disease, cancer and obesity. It should be of special interest to physicians, geneticists, anthropologists, and dieticians.
