Optimal Human Habitat
Posted in the Evolution Debate Forum

For years I have been pondering about Homo Sapiens natural habitat. This includes all aspects from lifestyle to nutrition to sun exposure, etc.
It started when i was getting into instinctive nutrition. I was eating a lemon thinking...
Why does my body love citrus so much? Did my ancestors love citrus! Where did they live? Did they live in some type of bountiful utopia? Where they nomadic travelers?
So, after a few few more weeks of studying diet, nutrition and human instincts I started heavily researching evolution again... in attempt to shed some light on some of the questions I've always had.
One theory that will always make the most since to me is the most popular "Out of Africa" theory.
Simply stated some of our ape like ancestors stumbled out of the African Rainforest (for what ever reason) and onto the African savanna. Here they adapted and explored new ways of living and surviving. So a big part of our evolutionary history may have happened in the African Savanna!(is this an optimal habitat)
So eventually some of our ancestors traveled to other parts of the world.
Here they were forced to adapt to different climates and different environments.
(which most likely made us more intelligent)
Now, I know that we can adapt and survive ANYWHERE on Earth...... but
Is there an optimal habitat where I/we should be living ?
I mean aren't all the great apes in there natural, optimal habitat?
I am Caucasian and I am very tall and thin... so in theory I have the body type to live in the African Savanna and the skin color to live in a Northern climate....
Maybe each individual or group of specific nationalities are best suited for certain locations?
So again my questions are
Is there an OPTIMAL, NATURAL human habitat where we thrive the best or where we should be living.(this would provide the proper human food, longevity, and health)
I've always had this idea that somewhere near the equator where there a constant temperature that we are comfortable in is our optimal habitat. but where?(Costa Rica?, Africa?)
