Not Uniquely Human with Barbara Natterson-Horowitz

ASU Insight: "Not Uniquely Human" from ASU Now on Vimeo.

Flamingos have heart attacks, tigers get breast cancer, gorillas can have eating disorders and dragon flies get obese. Why do animals get the same diseases people do? UCLA Professor of Medicine Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, M.D. explains the potential answers in her seminar, "Not Uniquely Human," sponsored by the Center for Evolution and Medicine for its annual Darwin Day Celebration. Natterson-Horowitz is also the author of the New York Times best seller "Zoobiquity: The Astonishing Connection Between Human and Animal Health." Watch a preview of her talk in the video above, or enjoy the full video here
