As a society we have been very successful in providing for our basic needs of food, shelter and safety. In fact, it is now being argued that we have been too successful and that the invention of a multitude of labor saving devices and the availability of cheap, plentiful calories is becoming a negative for our health. Cellular biology has identified many of the processes that our systems call upon in times of stress (such as colds, having a lack of food or injury) and these same pathways have been shown to slow or even reverse the process of cellular ageing, in a process known as hormesis. Unlike our free range predecessors, modern domesticated humans have very little need for these stress responses, and as a consequence are also missing much of the benefit they can provide to health and ageing.
