John Durant, author of The Paleo Manifesto, argues for a revolutionary approach to health, based on the way humans evolved in their natural habitat. As Durant asks us to rethink many culturally ingrained lifestyle practices, he raises a number of fascinating questions, including why the is Bible so obsessed with hygiene.
