Respond to Biology Questions: Human Health and Disease from an Evolutionary Perspective Discussion
Throughout the last couple of decades scientists have been taking a closer look at human health and disease through the lens of evolution. From hypothesizing as to the benefits of your body’s fever response to infections (see Function of Fever and Annals of Internal Medicine), to maintaining overall human health (see Michael Rose’s 55), to the burgeoning science of aging (see Evolutionary Theories of Aging and Longevity), evolutionary thinking can be used to develop testable hypotheses. For example, some scientists are using evolutionary biology concepts to determine why some bacteria and viruses are highly virulent while others are not, living in their hosts with few, if any, ill effects. Please watch these brief videos “Cholera: Domesticating Disease” [Video File] [04 Min 50 Sec] and “Double Immunity” [Video File] [02 Min 30 Sec] and then develop responses to the question below.

How would an understanding of evolution help health care professionals manage infectious diseases and epidemics? I would like you to consider the factors affecting the evolution of disease organisms and their level of virulence as part of your response. Please support your response with examples of humans coevolving with disease microbes. Lastly, please tell us if you would prefer to have your personal health evaluated from an evolutionary perspective?
