“For many thousands of years humans have used the huge variety of plants and animals of our environment as food, raw materials, medicines and as a source of inspiration for life. How does the modern diet compare to that of our ancestors, and do we need to re-evaluate how we eat nowadays? What can we learn from the evidence of how humans ate during our evolution? Does foraging have a place in modern society? What are the consequences of modern foods on our health and on the environment? ”
