The Rap Guide to Medicine is a hip-hop guide to evolutionary medicine and the Darwinian roots of disease, inspired by the book "Why We Get Sick" and other recent advances in understanding health as an evolutionary phenomenon. With music by veteran UK producer Mr. Simmonds, tracks explore the evolutionary roots of cancer, diseases of modernity, genetic disorders, infection, and aging.
