Researcher Marlene Zuk’s eye-opening research shows that evolution can work much faster than was previously thought. We are not biologically the same as our cave dwelling ancestors, so why should we eat, exercise or mate like them? Jettisoning speculation for scientific evidence, Zuk takes on popular myths about diet, lifestyle choices and gender differences with witty and engrossing scientific analysis. In debunking paleo fantasies, Zuk broadens our ideas about human origins and what those origins can tell us about our present and our future.

Zuk’s visit to EWU is sponsored by The Dan and Margaret Carper Foundation. Please join us for complimentary lectures in Spokane or on the Cheney campus.
