| November 7, 2012 |
Advancements have been made so quickly, and have had such a significant impact on the human body that in the last century, the shape and size of the body itself has changed in an attempt to adapt to this unprecedented onslaught of physiological impact. This is according to a new paper published by Robert W. Fogel and Nathaniel Grotte, at the National Bureau of Economic Research. Spanning 300 years of height and nutrition data, the authors have poured their findings into what has culminated as a new and modern form of evolution, known as "technophysio-evolution."
