Application and implication
A new hypothesis of the human evolution should explain not only the development of new specific human traits, but also other aspects related to the biological, social and philosophical human condition. Among these, the human pathology, i.e. diseases with a much higher incidence in humans than in the most related primates or dieseases absent in these primates, have a great importance. These traits could also be the consequences of the process of human evolution.
Among the applications and implications of this hypothesis:
- undestanding the specific human diseases, absent or with a much less incidence in the most related primates, e.g. psychiatric disorders, some degenerative disorders, associated or not with aging;
- understanding aging, a new hypothesis of aging based on a new evolutionary perspective – the biochemical hypothesis of aging, which is at the basis of a new book about aging, soon available. Its predictions can be both theoretically (a new hypothesis about accelerated aging syndreomes) and experimentally verified. Treatment and prevention of aging seems possible, especially through the lens of evolution. (editorial). New experiments in progress support this idea. The treatment and prevention of aging seem possible, a new article will present some results in mice suggesting that a lot of substances can alter the aging’s pace.
- understand evolution applied to all species, development of a new biochemical paradigm of evolution, wich is the starting point of a new book I am working at.
- psychological applications- mental health- understanding the mental diseases (science and psychology)- and developping a new type of psychotherapy (a new type of psychotherapy)
- the human being- the fattest primate- a new perspective on obesity, which is epidemic nowadays;
- philosophical implications- new perspective on the human condition
