Micro Mention "Domesticated"

Richard C. Francis

Domesticated” by Richard C. Francis is an interesting nonfiction read about animals’ domestication and even *gasp* humans. As in, we domesticated ourselves—and not like a slavery thing—but as a capable of society thing. It explores how domestication has significant biological effects.

Ultimately, it's fascinating to find out just how much we've altered the natural world and how many animals we think of as natural wouldn't exist in the form they do without our influence. Even before genetic engineering, like in a laboratory, humanity's influence over nature has been so extreme for thousands of years that we've actually changed the DNA of countless animals over generations. It's a wild realization the longer you think about it.
