The Evolutionary Antecedents of Obesity: Why We Are Fat Now

Time: 7:00 pm til 8:30 pm

Location: Harry P. Leu Gardens 1920 North Forest Avenue, Orlando, FL 32803

Description: The February presentation will be given by Dr. Leslie Sue Lieberman, Profesor Emerita of Anthropology at the University of Central Florida. She posits that evolutionary theory provides insights for interpreting the human proclivity for fatness in our recent and novel obesogenic environment of plentiful, energetically low cost, high energy density and good tasting food. Understanding the underlying mechanisms of obesity can provide a basis for more effective interventions to stem this growing pandemic and its consequences such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, some cancers and musculoskeletal disorders.
