While evidence of atherosclerosis in both ancient and contemporary preindustrial humans exists, Michael Gurven (UC Santa Barbara) explains in this talk that there is less evidence that such pathology is clinically relevant.  While there may not be a single smoking gun that explains a human heart-friendly lifestyle, he argues that the importance of a well-regulated immune system may be central.
