How Good of a Hunter-Gatherer Would You Be?

For 190,000 years, humans existed as hunter-gatherers. It was only 10,000 years ago that we took up agriculture and began to confuse our biological makeup. More recently, just 100 years ago, we confused our biology even more when the majority of people became sedentary due to industrialization. We are most healthy when we don't confuse our genetics, that's why it's important to listen to your DNA and mimic the lifestyle of hunter-gatherers in a modern setting.

So how good a chances of survival would YOU have if you were a hunter-gatherer? City slickers aren't welcome in the wilderness. Are you the exception? Find out how in touch you are with your biological makeup!
