Episode 119: Taking Bone Mechanics by the Horns

Get ready for a deep dive on scientific studies and how to read and understand them. This episode of Move Your DNA will accompany you through a five-mile walk at a 3mph pace, and along the way, you’ll hear biomechanist and author Katy Bowman and biologist Jeannette Loram offer their perspective on a recent study published in the journal Scientific Reports and its coverage. You know the one—the Washington Post headlined its story: “Horns are growing on young people’s skulls. Phone use is to blame, research suggests.” They also delve into definitions of evolution and adaption--concepts anyone interested in movement, natural movement, and body shapes will find beneficial to understand.
