The Tarahumara, a tribe from Mexico's Copper Canyon, are known to be long-distance runners. Through their lifestyles, they have managed to keep major illnesses like cancer and diabetes at bay. How do they do they keep running with footwear made of a thin piece of leaṭher, and a diet that consists of mainly corn and beans? This tribe is a living example of how, contrary to popular belief, ancient grains are still some of the healthiest sources of energy. Watch them break the myths around modern science and fad diets, one small and strategic step at a time.
