-all these sound like a lot of work but you get more back compared to hunting and good control of domestication and potential for surplus! -bad analysis: people are in worse physical conditions is because the diet range gets narrower. You can an overdependence on carbohydrates and worse dental health because of sticky carbho’s. and then they grind the grain with a rock and the rock has sand. Repetitive motion injury because of motion like digging or harvesting, then their shoulders, backs, and knees get worn out. -Complexities (aren’t good or bad) : all of the different other things that come when you domesticate 1) Seditism 2) Specialization 3) Storage 4) Access 5) Sex based differences in activities. 1) Seditism-trash pile up, disease increase. Staying put means more food but other things come along. 2) to make efficient use of resources, make one person farm and one person to make pots or someone else is making tools. people are trading off what they are doing all day to what other people are doing all day. Hunter gathers society is all just themselves. 3) if you are a farmer, you can only harvest once or twice a year and you have to make it last the whole time. So you have to store it. 4) if you stay put and grow food, who is going to get the best land next to the river? Not everyone can get the good land. Increases social stress because not everyone has access to food in the storage.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
