My name is Mackenzie, and I am a scientist. Am I employed as a scientist? No, but I believe everyone, whether they're a Howard Hughes Medical Investigator or an elementary school child mixing vinegar and baking soda, is capable of living and thinking as a scientist. My hope is that one day I will finish my scientific academic pursuits by gaining admission to graduate school, but until then I will continue to approach life in a scientific manner.
With my background and knowledge of human evolution, desire to be scientific in my pursuit of healthy living, and passion for educating others, I hope to shed some light on eating and exercising fads that even most healthy bloggers think are okay. I also intend to look at fads, scientific studies, anecdotal evidence, etc. in the light of evolution as not only is that where my expertise lies, but as Theodosius Dobzhanksy puts it, "Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light evolution." I intend to reformat this famous quote as, "Nothing in the human diet and physiology makes sense except in the light evolution."
I hope that this blog finds its way to individuals who will find it useful as well as insightful. Perhaps occasionally funny or inspiring... but let's not get carried away. :)
