So we have all these different locations in the world where modern humans now have left Africa, they've established http://www.thedrum.com/news/2017/11/03/3-conference-asks-the-youngest-generation-about-their-successful-mothers-and-gets themselves in places other than just Africa, and we see domestication in places like New Guinea and in what is now China and in the Americas.
And it's all very fascinating, because it wasn't like there was a rule book that said, now this is how you domesticated. It seems to have emerged with the populations. http://mic.com/articles/141247/here-s-what-it-would-look-like-if-colleges-were-honest-about-campus-sexual-assault Maybe it's a part of our nature. Our ancestors were just as bright as we think we are, maybe brighter.
We were talking about it, maybe they actually had something on us. They had fewer distractions. But I'm sure that they recognized that consumption of certain kinds of foods http://www.self.com/story/these-fake-college-acceptance-letters-make-a-sobering-point-about-sexual-assault elicited certain physiological responses in them, or certain behavioral responses in them.
And so those wise ancestors, I'm sure began to see correlations. Even if they didn't understand the level of causation that https://thinkprogress.org/college-paper-ad-warns-prospective-students-that-rape-could-be-part-of-the-price-of-admission-d58052bab3da/ we focus on now, they would have seen correlations between what they ate and how they felt, what they ate and how other organisms responded to them.
And that sets the template for talking about human-plant co-evolution, and ultimately human-plant parasite co-evolution http://www.teenvogue.com/story/college-acceptance-letter-anti-rape-ad. So the story I want to tell you starts for me in West Africa, in a small country called Liberia. My husband's a nutritional scientist.
And we went to Liberia to do our dissertation research back in the late '70s. And we got to Liberia, and it's really only http://www.bu.edu/comtalk/2017/03/02/prettybird-lady-gaga/ about 200 miles across from Robertsport all the way down to Hartford with Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Cote d'Ivoire bordering Liberia.
