About this item

The aim of this edited book is to provide a variety of health professionals with a targeted access to medical subfields.??? Throughout the book, the views of both medical and evolutionary scientists on the latest relevant research is presented with a focus on its practical implications (or lack thereof) and for each chapter, the authors take as balanced and critical approach as possible. The inclusion of boxes explaining the theoretical background as well  as  both a glossary  for  technical  terms  and a  lay  summary  for  non- specialists enable medical researchers, public health professionals, policy-makers, physicians, students, scholars and the public alike to retrieve the relevant information. This edited volume is thus relevant not only to health professionals but also to anyone keen on finding out whether and how evolutionary medicine can improve the health and well-being of people.?
