Long present a potentially life-changing proposal: Much of human life has an unconsidered component that explains an array of behaviors previously thought to be unrelated, including why winners cheat, why geniuses often suffer with mental illness, why nearly all diets fail, and more.

Because of this, our brain uses its spare time to learn about the social world-other people and our relation to them. Move Your DNA explains the science behind our need for natural movement - right down to the cellular level.

It shows the many problems with using exercise like movement vitamins instead of addressing the deeper issue of a poor movement diet.
