Ribs For Walking? We’re Not Ribbing

Ribs For Walking? We’re Not Ribbing

It’s all about evolution in this episode with consultant orthopaedic surgeon Dr Rajesh Singh. First, we look at a new hypothesis by researchers from the University of Utah that the ribs evolved for movement first, before being co-opted for breathing. Also in this episode, your back pain may be due to the fact that you evolved to walk on two legs.
