As food anthropologists were becoming more attentive to history, a decidedly less formalistic concern with food symbols that had been brewing for a decade or more crystallized in Mary Weismantel’s (1988) Food, Gender, and Poverty in the Ecuadorian Andes and a number of other works (Kahn 1986; Munn 1986; Pollock 1985). Symposia organized by the International Commission on the Anthropology of Food and Nutrition (ICAF) periodically address such seminal topics as the dynamics of food sharing, the development of food preferences, and the relationship between food and status.

They question why food and drink did not figure more prominently among the business of legislators sitting in Dublin or London.

Europeans brought deadly viruses and bacteria, such as smallpox, measles, typhus, and cholera, for which Native Americans had no immunity (Denevan, 1976). On their return home, European sailors brought syphilis to Europe. Although less deadly, the disease was known to have caused great social disruption throughout the Old World (Sherman, 2007). The effects of the Columbian Exchange were not isolated to the parts of the world most directly participating in the exchange: Europe and the Americas.

Food and the History of Healing Through Nutrition. the Greek physician Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine said, Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food. Hippocrates realized that food impacts a person’s health, body and mind to help prevent illness as well as maintain wellness. He observed that they ate only nonperishable foods such as bread and meat. Scientific Developments in Nutrition. During the Enlightenment and into the Victorian age, scientific and medical development increased exponentially. The concept of metabolism, the transfer of food and oxygen into heat and water in the body, creating energy, was discovered in 1770 by Antoine Lavoisier, the Father of Nutrition and Chemistry.

One expert may tell us that food irradiation is perfectly safe and should be used far more often to preserve the safety and integrity of our foods. Another expert may question whether exposing food to radiation places people who eat the food at risk for certain illnesses. In a country that is dealing with record rates of obesity, none of the experts agree on the best way to lose weight. While there are a seemingly endless number of food and nutrition controversies, this book has focused on just fifteen. We attempted to select those concerns that were most commonly discussed in the media and that would be of interest to most people. The chapters are designed to serve as introductions, presenting the various sides of the controversies.

Ten anthropologists trace the machinations of war and the effects of violence in capitalist states, from their formation to the present. This collection, the newest volume in the War and Society series, questions the foundations of classical social theory while investigating local and international conflict through the critical and cross-cultural lens of social theory, history, and anthropology. The essays combine to challenge the notion developed by social theorists such as Comte, Spencer, Durkheim, and Engels that war will diminish with the formation and the perpetuation of a capitalist economy and industry. The development of capitalist states, and the nefarious and violent processes which must occur to reproduce capitalism, are rarely realized and then infrequently analyzed. Many western and ethnocentric scholarly representations of war succeed in hiding the deadly developments that occur as a result of capitalist state formation and relations.
