Café Scientifique: Evolutionary Antecedents of Obesity

I love discovering new talk/chat groups (not new as in new, but new as in new to me) and this one sounds intriguing.

About
Café Scientifique, or just Science Cafe, is a monthly gathering of scientific experts and interested lay community in a pub or other nonacademic setting exploring the latest ideas in science and technology, using plain language.

People are fat. Let's talk.
The group's August talk is "Evolutionary Antecedents of Obesity" by presenter Leslie Sue Lieberman, Ph.D. "Evolutionary medicine provides insights into why we are experiencing a global pandemic of obesity, and what we might do about it." Waffle fries and sundaes served post-discussion. Kidding.
