Culture and Biological Adjustment

Culture contains many things which help people in their unremitting battle with nature. Since people suffer in cold and hot weather, they wear clothes and build houses. While culture helps people adjust to their environment, it also interferes with their biological adjustment in many ways.

Every culture offers many examples of patterns harmful to physical well-being. Through culture we have improved our weapons until we can destroy the entire human race. We follow methods of agriculture and land use which destroy the soil and flood the land. Manypeople eat, drink and smoke more than required. In every culture there are norms that are healthy for survival and otherswhichare injurious to mankind.
