Most of us view disease as bad. We get sick and protest how unfair it is or see the disease as an enemy we need to nuke with pills, lasers, or a surgical strike. Dr. Sharon Moalem views disease as history lesson in how our ancestors adapted to survive plagues and climate changes. He believes these history lessons can help us be healthier. Dr. Moalem has a doctorate in physiology and the emerging fields of neurogenetics and evolutionary medicine. He is also completing his medical school training at Mt. Siani hospital in New Work City. He is author of the New York Times Best Selling book: Survival of the Sickest: A Medical Maverick Discovers Why We Need Disease.
