The Future of Homo

Examples of QUESTIONS included in “THE FUTURE OF HOMO” (published by World Scientific)

-At a global scale, in the age of cheap synthetic oxytocin and safe caesarean sections, love hormones are redundant in the period surrounding birth… an unprecedented situation.

-In the age of hospital births, the immune system of most human newborn babies is not immediately educated by a great diversity of familiar (and friendly) microorganisms … an unprecedented situation.

-In the age of safe caesarean sections, women who give birth easily do not have more children than the others… an unprecedented neutralisation of the laws of natural selection.

-In the age of emerging scientific disciplines such as metagenomic bacteriology, epigenetic, hormonology, epidemiology, the short perinatal period appears as critical in the formation of individuals … new ways of thinking.

-In his latest book, Michel Odent provides countless reasons to phrase novel questions about probable transformations of human beings.

Michel Odent, MD, has been in charge of the surgical unit and the maternity unit at the Pithiviers (France) state hospital (1962-1985). He is the author of the first article in the medical literature about the initiation of lactation during the hour following birth (1977), of the first article about the use of birthing pools (Lancet 1983), and of the first article applying the ‘Gate Control Theory of Pain’ to obstetrics (1975).
