As primates we need to live in the “right” social environment – much of our illness stems from a poor fit – the cure is a better fit.

A central tenet of Michael’s is that we do best in environments that fit our evolved state. Diet is a very important aspect of finding the best fit. But so is our social environment.

Practical work at one of Canada’s largest banks and at Canada’s Department for Veterans’ Affairs is shedding new light on why people get ill as a result of being at work and why so many elderly people get ill once they are institutionalized.

It’s all about role and control.
