The basic question I ask — why does the human body look and function the way it does— requires an evolutionary perspective because nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution. An evolutionary approach to human anatomy and physiology not only helps us to understand better why humans are the way they are, but also helps provide key insights on how to prevent many kinds of illnesses and injuries.
