The Fragile Wisdom

The Fragile Wisdom

Harvard University Press | January 14, 2013 | 329 pages

Women’s physiology evolved to aid reproduction, not to reduce disease. Any trait—however detrimental to post-reproductive health—is preserved in the next generation if it increases the chances of having offspring who will survive and reproduce. For this reason, the author argues, many common diseases are especially difficult for women to prevent.
