Join over six million BBC Earth fans by liking us onor follow us on and. That is the reason why sweating is a useful thing and hence why hair loss is a useful thing. Simple protection may not have been the only reason Dangerous Motherhood started wearing clothes At this time our own species, Homo sapiens, already walked the Earth in Africa.

Washburn's tidy narrative does not seem quite as satisfying as it once did. This suggests that clothes were becoming more than Dangerous Motherhood useful.

9 million years ago, this species is thought to have already undergone many of the anatomical changes that allowed our ancestors to walk upright, even if there was still some way to go before walking as we would now recognise it evolved.


Dunsworth agrees: Dangerous Motherhood thinks many factors are involved in the evolution of modern childbirth. There is no archaeological evidence that hominins were using fire two million years ago, and argued that cooking only became common about 500,000 years ago. There are very few newborn baby skeletons among the human remains from early hunter-gatherer groups, which might hint that death rates among newborns were relatively low.

And if we didn't, that in itself is interesting. This type of diabetes, which occurs only during pregnancy, is more common as women get older. The trouble began, they said, with the earliest members of our evolutionary lineage — the hominins.
