Renowned animal behaviorist Fred Provenza spent his academic career researching how animals respond to an intricately tuned system of flavor-feedback relationships at the cellular level -- a nutritional wisdom that guides them to meet their dietary needs. But what about us? Do humans still possess the wisdom to select nourishing diets?

He embarks on a paradigm-shifting exploration of an eternal wisdom that can nurture the human body and spirit in a world of perpetual change.
