When good bodies go bad (and why) ; The pronghorn principle and what our guts flee ; The dirty realities of what to do when you are sick and missing your worms -- pt. 3. What your appendix does and how it has changed. Several things the gut knows and the brain ignores ; I need my appendix (and so do my bacteria) -- pt. 4. How we tried to tame cows (and crops) but instead they tamed us, and why it made some of us fat. When cows and grass domesticated humans ; So who cares if your ancestors sucked milk from aurochsen? -- pt. 5. How predators left us scared, pathos-ridden and covered in goosebumps.

The pathogens that left us hairless and xenophobic. How lice and ticks (and their pathogens) made us naked and gave us skin cancer ; How the pathogens that made us naked also made us xenophobic, collectivist, and disgusted -- pt. 7.
