An Archevore is someone who eats based on essential principles, and also someone who hungers for essential principles. Take your pick.

Exploring these principles is one of my interests, but not the only one.

So you may find commentary here about other issues in medicine, health, other sciences, or just about anything.

Kurt Harris MD

I graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology in 1983 and received my MD from University of Iowa College of Medicine in 1987. After residency training in radiology, and fellowship training in neuroradiology, I spent several years in academic positions at Iowa before entering private practice. I am currently a practicing board-certified radiologist and a senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiology.

I have had a lifelong interest in science and medicine as culture, and believe all claims to scientific authority should be subject to thoughtful skepticism.

After hearing Gary Taubes on the radio, I had an epiphany and ever since I've been exploring the field of nutrition through the lenses of medicine and evolutionary biology.
