First, I would like to thank everyone who attended my presentation at the 2012 Ancestral Health Symposium, “What Is Hunger, and Why Are We Hungry?” The crowd was both high-powered and appreciative of my work, the Q&A session was constructive, and I’m looking forward to discussing the facts I presented in greater detail. However, I don’t think it’s productive to open that discussion until the video is available.
Meanwhile, as promised by my slides, the bibliography for “What Is Hunger, and Why Are We Hungry? – J. Stanton” is available at this link.
I can’t possibly enumerate everyone I met there—or even just those with whom I had the pleasure of speaking at length—but I must acknowledge a few people individually:
- Miki Ben-Dor, for his gracious acknowledgment of my contribution to his excellent presentation “Man the Fat Hunter”, and for being one of the few people with whom I can discuss evolutionary critiques of the agricultural and industrial socioeconomic system — subjects that I believe should be brought to greater prominence at AHS13.
- Seth Roberts, for leading off my Q&A session with a productive dialogue, and for the subsequent fascinating discussions.
- Melissa and Dallas Hartwig, for more great questions at the Q&A, their gracious acknowledgment of my contribution to “It Starts With Food”—and for the delicious dinner, which also allowed me some quality time with Anastasia Boulais and Jamie Scott.
- Stefani Ruper, John Durant, Todd Becker, and Mark Sisson, for reasons each knows.
- Ned Kock, for covering so much ground in the limited time we had available. We needed more.
- Paul Jaminet, for everything. I wish I could have joined you for drinks on Saturday, but the NPR interviewer kept me busy for well over an hour!
- The AHS team on-site—especially Aaron Blaisdell, Carlos Andres Toro, Katherine Morrison, and Beth Mazur.
I’ll be catching up on my backlog of unanswered comments and emails over the next few days.
Meanwhile, the wildflowers have been disappointing this year, due to a dry spring (unlike last year, which was spectacular)…but the riding has been excellent due to a few minor but welcome rain showers.
