Sample text

How can we tell from ancient skeletal remains how hard (or easy) past lifeways were? Is it possible to reconstruct workload and activity levels in the past? Indeed it is, and one avenue for understanding past lifestyles is via the study of bone structure and its links to behavior. When a person is alive, that person’s bone tissue is highly plastic, especially when the bones are growing and maturing prior to adulthood. In the nineteenth century, the German anatomist Julius Wolff observed that when bone is “stressed,” it increases where it is needed to resist stress.

In addition, anthropologists have documented reduced rates of growth as estimated by comparison of lengths of limb bones of children at specific ages and adult heights (various mentions in Cohen and Armelagos 1984, Steckel and Rose 2002, Cohen and Crane-Kramer 2007). Thus, early farmers tend to be shorter as both children and adults than early foragers or in comparison with modern populations with abundant nutrition. A variety of evidence gathered by nutrition scientists indicates that meat provides the only full complement of essential amino acids necessary for growth and development, not to mention a range of micronutrients (various authors as mentioned in Demment and Allen 2003).

In mouse knockout (KO) studies, PTL deficiency was asymptomatic, but colipase deficiency was associated with steatorrhea. Bile salt-dependent lipase is also secreted by the pancreas. This enzyme has broad substrate specificity for all fat and membrane lipids. It is also secreted in human milk. This enzyme codes from human chromosome 9 and is conserved in archael and bacterial genomes. Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) is a secretory pancreatic enzyme that cleaves the sn-2 position of the glycerol backbone of membrane phospholipids.
