Anthropology seeks to know the link between the concepts of health, environment and pay homage to the medico-biological requirements with numerous cultural stimuli that act before and during illness. Ample attention is given to the process of human evolution, the acquisition of upright posture, the encephalization and foot changes and spine following orthostatism.
