Survival of the Sickest Book Description:

Sharon Moalem proposes that common diseases came into existence for very good reasons - for example, how diabetes may be a by-product of a mechanism that helped humans survive the Ice Age, and why Asians can't drink as much alcohol as Europeans. She also looks at how the modern world influences disease.
